Government Climate Expert Needed – No Math Skills Is A Plus

NCDC has no data for half of the land surface on the planet, but was able to calculate a record temperature by a couple hundredths of a degree.

How did these math flunkees make it past high school, and into the SOTU address?

    “All science requires mathematics. The knowledge of mathematical things is almost innate in us. This is the easiest of sciences, a fact which is obvious in that no one’s brain rejects it; for laymen and people who are utterly illiterate know how to count and reckon.”

    I think of it as the STFU address….that’s close to SOTU, isn’t it?

      I figure on making it exciting until I fall over drunk: The SOTU Drinking Game.
      1 Drink for every mention of Climate Change
      3 Drinks for every “Warmest Year Ever”.
      1 Drink for taking credit for the world’s largest producer of oil and gas.
      1 Drink for taking credit for reducing CO2 emissions.
      I’ve though of some more, but I’ll probably be toast by this stage.

    I’ll get the popcorn ready!

    What are the random measurements seen floating above the oceans where there is no land shown? And how do you produce a globe-wide estimate without sampling the regions that are the furthest away from the warmest region?

    • DavidS says:

      There are islands at those locations.

      • Dale left coast says:

        Another example of the Wizzard of Oz/Gorebull Warming movement . . . make something out of nothing . . . and turn it into cash . . .

      • Aphan says:

        Itty Bitty remote islands upon which NOAA has placed reliable temperature equipment with a long running history? Amazing. I thought maybe it was just the missing heat in the oceans coming up for air….

  5. gator69 says:

    Tony, I believe we have some potential candidates, and in honor of MLK Day here they are…

    And you wonder why the left coast has so many lunatics in office.

    • Gail Combs says:

      I made Hubby play that….

      We really really need that earthquake that separates California from the rest of the country and sinks it under the sea.

  6. Each year, in order to report record warming, they have to “adjust” the raw data more and more. Each year the gap increases between the raw surface temperature and the adjusted surface temperature.

    It is like a Ponzi scheme of temperature data.

  7. Psalmon says:

    No wonder they keep saying Greenland is warming so fast.

  8. Anything is possible says:

    No problem. Simply use ocean temperatures to infill missing land data, even if it’s thousands of miles from the sea……

    …and, Hey Presto! You have the warmist year evah.

  9. Dave N says:

    Wait.. the “global” “record” is based on around 15% of the Earth’s surface?

    It’s worse than I thought.

  10. JN says:

    And the baseline is not actual historical data, anyway.

  11. gymnosperm says:

    Still trying to figure out how you even get to half the earth with only a few flecks in the 70% ocean. Presumably the grey land areas are at par, yet massive infill must be happening in Antarctica and central Eurasia as thermometers are VERY far between.

    Check out the dissonance in south Africa where mildly warm anomaly grid cells are juxtaposed to seriously cold…
