Spectacular Cheating On The NOAA Report Card

NOAA has reached new levels of fraud in their 2014 Arctic report card, with nearly every single talking point the exact opposite of reality.

What’s new in 2014?

Rising air and sea temperatures continue to trigger changes in the Arctic. The Arctic is warming at twice the rate of anywhere else on Earth.

Nonsense. The Arctic hasn’t warmed for a decade.

North of 80N, the melt season was the coldest on record, with below normal temperature every day

The warming Arctic atmosphere was strongly connected to lower latitudes in early 2014 causing cold air outbreaks into the eastern USA and warm air intrusions into Alaska and northern Europe.

Nonsense. In the 1970’s they blamed the identical pattern on excess Arctic ice and global cooling. There isn’t one smidgen of science behind the NOAA claim.



Snow cover extent in April 2014 in Eurasia was the lowest since 1967 and sea ice extent in September was the 6th lowest since 1979.

Mind-boggling levels of dishonesty. Fall/Winter Northern Hemisphere snow cover was at or near the highest on record.

Polar bears numbers in western Hudson Bay and the southern Beaufort Sea are decreasing in connection with a decrease in the availability of sea ice.

Utter nonsense. Hudson Bay froze early this year, and the Hudson Bay Polar Bear population is stable according to Environment Canada.

The tundra is “browning” as the length of the growing season is decreasing in Eurasia, but maximum tundra greenness and biomass are increasing across the Arctic.

It is getting greener and browner at the same time? Did anyone at NOAA make it past middle school?

Sea surface temperatures and primary production are increasing as the sea ice retreats throughout the Arctic Ocean.

Utter nonsense. Arctic sea ice extent is at a 10 year high, and has been for almost two months

On the Greenland ice sheet nearly 40% of the surface experienced melting conditions in summer 2014 and the albedo (reflectivity) reached a new record low value in August.

Pure propaganda, and the opposite of reality. Surface melt across 40% of the surface is average,  and Greenland has gained near record amounts of ice this autumn.

Every single talking point in the NOAA Arctic report card was either deceptive or outright fraudulent.

    Wow this is strong stuff to bad they are allowed to lie in newspapers (freedom of speech ect).BTW looks like SH ice is again taking off big time (anomaly)

    • Dmh says:


      Don’t know how to “explain” (with real science) the new spike,
      One possibility is that the cooling Atlantic is helping,

        • Dmh says:

          This is an impressive graph,

          No wonder the Antarctic ice is growing so fast and steadily in recent years.
          I believe it’s possible to identify a step-change in temperatures at the beginning of the present solar cycle.

        • Gail Combs says:


          Yes there seems to be a connection between the drop in EUV/UV during solar cycles and ozone and changes in atmospheric circulation as well as the amount of energy going into the oceans. Now we have a solar cycle that is different than those seen during the 20th century. There are a lot of interesting bits and pieces out there but the Climastrologists are not interested in actually looking at them since the UN mandate is to look ONLY at human CO2 cause climate change so there is no money or Atta Boys.

          A few Bits and Pieces
          The changes in the sun’s EUV/UV levels change from solar max to solar min by as much as 6% or more. This effects the creation and destruction of ozone. SEE: THE BREWER-DOBSON CIRCULATION – (wwwDOT)ccpo.odu.edu/~lizsmith/SEES/ozone/class/Chap_6/6_3.htm

          Why Measure Solar EUV? •
          Solar EUV flux is highly variable and is absorbed in the upper atmosphere

          Effect of Solar EUV on the Atmosphere
          Solar EUV Flux is the primary source of energy and is a critical source of variability of the thermosphere and ionosphere.

          Increased EUV flux causes an increase in the atmospheric density. [Satellite Orbits ]

          They actually did field research in this study on atmospheric circulation shifts and looked at the time period in the same ball park of the above study.

          06 May 2012 Nature Geoscience | Letter Regional atmospheric circulation shifts induced by a grand solar minimum – (wwwDOT)nature.com/ngeo/journal/v5/n6/abs/ngeo1460.html

          Large changes in solar ultraviolet radiation can indirectly affect climate by inducing atmospheric changes. Specifically, it has been suggested that centennial-scale climate variability during the Holocene epoch was controlled by the Sun. However, the amplitude of solar forcing is small when compared with the climatic effects and, without reliable data sets, it is unclear which feedback mechanisms could have amplified the forcing. Here we analyse annually laminated sediments of Lake Meerfelder Maar, Germany, to derive variations in wind strength and the rate of 10Be accumulation, a proxy for solar activity, from 3,300 to 2,000 years before present. We find a sharp increase in windiness and cosmogenic 10Be deposition 2,759  ±  39 varve years before present and a reduction in both entities 199  ±  9 annual layers later. We infer that the atmospheric circulation reacted abruptly and in phase with the solar minimum. A shift in atmospheric circulation in response to changes in solar activity is broadly consistent with atmospheric circulation patterns in long-term climate model simulations, and in reanalysis data that assimilate observations from recent solar minima into a climate model. We conclude that changes in atmospheric circulation amplified the solar signal and caused abrupt climate change about 2,800 years ago, coincident with a grand solar minimum.

          Drake Passage is the narrow area between the tip of South America and Antarctica. Research on Drake Passage today: climate(DOT)gmu.edu/research/drake.php

          Drake Passage Effect Without the Drake Passage

          The experiments address a fundamental question of how the circulation of the ocean works. Since the global overturning circulation is apparently sensitive to wind even in regions where the ocean has eastern and western boundaries, it may be influenced by wind outside the Drake Passage latitudes. However, our results indicate that the unique geometry of the Drake Passage latitudes does make the global circulation – and perhaps the climate of the North Atlantic – especially sensitive to wind there.

          Oceans absorb EUV ===> Visible light from the sun differentially and the changes in the amounts at different wavelengths could effect ocean temperatures.

          There have also been observed changes in Albedo which again effects where the sun’s energy ends up. In the Atmosphere or in the oceans/surface.

    • Dmh says:

      And from the “polarbearscience” site,
      “… average November ice coverage across the Arctic this year was higher than 2003…”
      These are pretty good news.

  2. Matt says:

    Simply amazing. Not that they lie – that is what they understand to be their job instead of being scientists – but that they would do it in a way that the story would collapse after a fact check within days/hours. Good job,

  3. Science died a long time ago. It is all theology now. French philosophe Bruno Latour wrote about the ‘faith’ and worldviews held by ‘scientists’ back in 1979. Globaloneywarming has nothing to do with science but as Latour writes, with fetishes, fads and self-interest. His book on how a science Lab actually works [the politics, the fraud, the made up experiments] is enlightening.

  4. There’s a point when those shouting wolf start yelling louder and louder in the hope that people will believe them, when all it does is make them look like deluded nut-cases. NOAA are now just shouting because so few people take them seriously.

    It’s now just a short time before they should so loudly that even their own supporters want them to shut up and then we’ve won.

  5. gator69 says:

    “Rising air and sea temperatures continue to trigger changes in the Arctic. The Arctic is warming at twice the rate of anywhere else on Earth.

    Nonsense. The Arctic hasn’t warmed for a decade.”

    Considering that the Earth itself has not warmed in almost two decades, they are almost right.

    • Neal S says:

      I think I see what you mean. Anything times zero is still zero. So if there has been zero warming over the whole earth, then the zero warming in the arctic is some multiple of that whole-earth zero warming, and you could call it whatever multiple you think might still fool the masses.

  6. emsnews says:

    The key here is, the equator should be heating up the most, not the poles. Of course, the poles aren’t heating up, either.

  7. Don says:

    Desperate times require desperate measures, and the soon to be 114th Congress can make these lies go away by rigid oversight, plus de-funding the frauds. This is an attempt at preemption. Will the 114th Congress have the cojones?

  8. LMAO – The fruits of warmist ‘settled science’ and deceptions have made Climate ‘science’ synonymous with fraud. There is another comment feeding frenzy going on now at an Associated Press Article. Fraud in Science is immediately associated with Climate ‘science’ in comments.
