Gavin’s Hockey Stick of Data Tampering

The hockey stick was created largely by altering historical data.

The graph below shows how Gavin has altered his own global surface temperatures by 0.4 C, just since 2003.

The shape is not accidental. By pushing most of the tampering to the beginning and the end of the interval, it makes the damage harder to detect visually, as seen in the overlay below.

The animation below provides a much better visualization of how much damage the tampering does.

    Can’t stir the pot without a spoon! When trying to ladle government gravy on your potatoes, if you don’t have the spoon, make a stick and make it stick!

    SG, you may have noticed that since Gavin took over from Jimmy, there has been a divergence of trends between GISS/HadCrut and the satellite data.

    You have already pointed out the massive changes he has made to data from Reykjavik, and Vess(whatever it was) as well as central America. He used these changes to CREATE the LIE of 2014 being the hottest ever, smearing the FABRICATED +ve trend in Iceland across the Arctic.

    Gavin’s real problem is that because of USCRN he can no longer tamper with USHCN
    If he wants to continue to CREATE warming in the data, he is going to have to look to other parts of the world. !!

    Please stay vigilant, this fraudster will try ANYTHING !!!

    A handy consequence of this blatant data manipulation is the protagonists have put ample evidence of their own alleged malfeasance into the public domain themselves. Once there it cannot be removed. Dare I say it but perhaps these crack climate science ‘boffins’ aren’t quite so clever as they previously thought?

      Bad case of Arrogance backed by the knowledge a corrupt government will cover their arse plus the knowledge that there is Mr. Moneybags in the wings willing to foot any and all legal bills – Think sue happy Mikey Mann.

      Look at my comment this morning on the EPA ILLEGAL tests on Humans that violates not only US law but international law and the refusal of the Judge to hear the case and the refusal of Congress to investigate.

      EPA Charged With Lethal Experiments On Hundreds Of Unsuspecting Subjects

      …ATI member and plaintiff Steven Milloy recalls horrific family memories of his uncle, a prisoner at the WWII German Mauthausen concentration camp where grisly pseudoscientific medical experiments were conducted. There, upon threat of death, he was forced to identify fellow prisoners who were too ill to work, knowing they would subsequently be executed. Milloy is a well-known author and publisher of

      Another ATI plaintiff, David Schnare, formerly served for 33 years as an EPA scientist, policy analyst and enforcement lawyer. He left the agency after realizing that it had abandoned even-handed science-based approaches of earlier times. David is named in honor of family member David Steiner, a prisoner at the Buchenwald concentration camp who died on May 3, 1945, just 21 days after liberation. Some 729 inmates were subjects of barbaric medical experiments. Of those victims, 154 died.

      Guided by painful lessons of such tragedies, it is difficult to imagine any possible justification for the EPA’s experiment program on plausible ethical or legal grounds. Section 42 of U.S. Code 3515b addressing prohibition on funding certain experiments involving human participants states that: “…[no]funds appropriated by this Act ….shall be used to pay for any research program, project, or course which is of an experimental nature, or any other activity involving human participants, which is determined by the Secretary or a court of competent jurisdiction to present a danger to the physical, mental, or emotional well-being of a participant or subject of such program, project, or course, without the written, informed consent of each participant or subject.” ….

      The Judge had the gall to tell these men they had “No Standing” – how about mental anguish?

      ….Obama-appointed Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues has refused multiple requests to get involved in the issue, Senator Inhofe, the ranking member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, is now calling for investigatory hearings on the matter.

      In a letter to committee chair Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) Inhofe wrote: “It is extremely disturbing that EPA may have conducted illegal human experiments, exposing people with conditions such as asthma and metabolic syndrome to concentrated high levels of substances like fine particulate matter and diesel exhaust.” He then charged that: “EPA has repeatedly said that these substances can cause cancer and lead to death, so if these allegations of human experiments are true, it just validates the problem that the Obama-EPA’s mission is not about public health.”…..

      Thank goodness for Senator Inhofe he seems to be one of a very few Congress Critters actually working FOR the citizens of the USA.

    Even with the tampering, there is the question of why there should have been an unprecedented shepard’s crook instead of hockey stick if our use of fossil fuel had remained at 1950 levels.

    But when Homewood was then able to check Giss’s figures against the original data from which they were derived, he found that they had been altered. Far from the new graph showing any rise, it showed temperatures in fact having declined over those 65 years by a full degree. When he did the same for the other two stations, he found the same. In each case, the original data showed not a rise but a decline.

    Homewood had in fact uncovered yet another example of the thousands of pieces of evidence coming to light in recent years that show that something very odd has been going on with the temperature data relied on by the world’s scientists. And in particular by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which has driven the greatest and most costly scare in history: the belief that the world is in the grip of an unprecedented warming.

    1946 looks cold on the chart but ice was missing in Antarctica 😛

    Reblogged this on Centinel2012 and commented:
    Faking the numbers is the only thing they can do to try and save their failed climate models. History will not treat this scam artists very well.
