## Understanding NOAA Math

1. Much of the Earth is having record cold (Eastern/Central US, North Pole, Antarctica)
2. No place is having record heat. Nothing like the summer of 1936 in the US or 2003 in Europe.

NOAA sums the widespread 2014 record cold with no record heat, and determines that Earth is the hottest ever.

Just having fun

Of course they do, climate scientists know sonething the rest of us don’t.
Oh ya, it helps to be the gatekeeper of the data too.

“NOAA sums the widespread 2014 record cold with no record heat, and determines that Earth is the hottest ever.”

Only a denier would see a problem with this.

Well according to Senator Whitehouse… all that heat is going into the ocean that by some magical means, isn’t radiating / convecting back out and heating the atmosphere. Apparently the First Law of Thermodynamics doesn’t apply for Rhode Island.

Convenient how the heat is always where it cannot be measured. Even by Satellites!

It’s called “climate science”. Suppose you have a room at 100ºF. Suppose an adjoining room is at 0ºF. Suppose you open the door between the two rooms.

The temperature of both rooms now becomes 100ºF.

See how it works.

+1 for homogenization

No, what you get is pneumonia! 😉

Averaging for the calculation of temperatures is junk science.

We are in deep frigid space and we feel the need for cake.

Heat a cake at 180 C for an hour – input ~2.391 KWhrs.

“Heat” the same cake at minus 18 C for 10 hours – input ~2.391 KWhrs.

There is no way any rational person can claim these are equivalent – but climate scientists make these types of comparisons routinely.

Basically…
…when summer is hot its global warming
…when summer is cool its global warming
Got it.

This one really is a whopper though – 2014 Summer Heat…where?

Here in Arizona we are having one of the mildest summers I can remember since moving here in 1995 – June was particularly mild. I walk everyday – in the early morning, right around noon, and late afternoon; I know if it is really hot, or just hot. Mostly just hot this summer.

I also try to get out and overnight it outdoors at least twice a month – weekend before last was near Yuma by the Colorado River – did a quick survey of the US HCN station out there, you know it never showed any catastrophic heating. You would think it would, wouldn’t you, since it is monotonically dry there the heat-trapping properties of CO2 should have kicked in. A little heat rise in winter months, but quite a boring record actually. Yuma hasn’t been reporting raw data since 2005. Fancy that.

It was beautiful, a little windy not too hot. It’s just been a nice summer in Southern Arizona as far as I can see.

• I was at ASU in 1974. They had 19 days in a row over 110 degrees that summer.

• philjourdan says:

See? That is your problem! I was at UD (Dayton) in 74. Much colder then. 😉

That was the year I gave birth to my daughter. It was a very hot summer which was hard when pregnant and I never had an air conditioner in Tucson, just a swamp box.

Then it got REAL cold the following years and snow in Tucson, too.

Why should NOAA preserve and reveal raw data to you? You’ll just try to find something wrong with their computer models.
