.Fifteen years ago, government scientists were unhappy that the US was cooling and wrecking their theory, so they simply altered the data in a series of steps – to turn cooling into warming.
in the U.S. there has been little temperature change in the past 50 years, the time of rapidly increasing greenhouse gases — in fact, there was a slight cooling throughout much of the country
our analysis (Hansen et al., 1999a), …. makes clear that climate trends have been fundamentally different in the U.S. than in the world as a whole

ClimAstrologists are just discussing how many Dust Devils dance on the end of a Hokey Stick.
The ERROR swamps the entire data record. The best accuracy of the thermometers at the beginning of the 20th century was 0.5F. When you add in siting problems you find 64% of the stations are Class 4 (CRN4) (error >= 2C) – Artificial heating sources <10 meters.
Thanks, Gail, for using your talents to benefit mankind.
We face the re-enactment of a classic battle: GOOD vs EVIL; selfishness vs selflessness.
The good news is: The conclusion has already been recorded in the scriptures of diverse religions.
Steven, climatologists are adjusting data and observations today the same way cosmologists, nuclear, particle, planetary, solar, space and theoretical physicists have adjusted data and observations since the end of WWII to hide the source of energy that made chemical elements, birthed the solar system and sustains every atom, life and world in the solar system today:
“Teacher’s Supplement to Solar Energy” https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10640850/Supplement.p
The benevolent pulsar in the core of the Sun that . . .
1. Made our elements,
2. Birthed the solar system,
3. Sustained the origin and evolution of life on a water-covered planet 1 AU away, . . .
Is far less frightening that the thugs who foolishly believe they control the whole world.
We are fortunate indeed to witness a re-enactment of this classic battle in our lifetimes, knowing already that the inevitable conclusion is recorded in the scriptures of diverse religions worldwide.
Japan’s flag was changed at the end of WWII:

Japan’s secrecy laws are still undergoing change:
They do it both by selective past cooling and by deleting years of data.
Quite interesting. Your work dovetails with Steve’s and several others.
Make sure you make screenshots and copies of all the data you can get your hands on since the ClimAstrologists like to ‘Disappear’ embarrassing data.
You’re a bunch of conspiracy theory whackos!
So you’re telling me that a group of government employees, whose salaries, bonuses, raises, and jobs depend on data trending a certain way, would collude, conspire, fraudulently change data?
You’re crazy. Insane. Imagining things.
No such thing could ever happen. Tin foil whackos.
Oh, wait. They just convicted and sent to prison a group of government employees, whose salaries, bonuses, raises, and jobs depended on data trending a certain way, who colluded, conspired, fraudulently changed data in a racketeering and corrupt organization conspiracy operation.
So, yes, I am telling you that a vast conspiracy of government employees and contractors to commit data fraud for profit, influence and fame is not only conceivable, it is relatively common.
Listen for footsteps in the night, oh ye miscreants!
“A group of former Atlanta educators convicted in a test cheating scandal were locked up in Fulton County jails Thursday as they await sentences that could send them to prison for years.
In one of the nation’s largest cheating scandals of its kind, the 11 defendants were convicted Wednesday of racketeering for their roles in a scheme to inflate students’ scores on standardized exams.
They include teachers, a principal and other administrators, who were accused of falsifying test results to collect bonuses or keep their jobs in the 50,000-student Atlanta public school system. A 12th defendant, a teacher, was acquitted of all charges by the jury.
The racketeering charges carry up to 20 years in prison. Most of the defendants will be sentenced April 8.
“This is a huge story and absolutely the biggest development in American education law since forever,” University of Georgia law professor Ron Carlson said. “It has to send a message to educators here and broadly across the nation. Playing with student test scores is very, very dangerous business.”
A state investigation found that as far back as 2005, educators fed answers to students or erased and changed answers on tests after they were turned in. Evidence of cheating was found in 44 schools with nearly 180 educators involved, and teachers who tried to report it were threatened with retaliation.
Similar cheating scandals have erupted in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Nevada and other public school systems around the country in recent years, as officials link scores to school funding and staff bonuses and vow to close schools that perform poorly.
Thirty-five Atlanta educators in all were indicted in 2013 on charges including racketeering, making false statements and theft. Many pleaded guilty, and some testified at the trial.”
‘Racketeering’. That’s has a nice ring to it, perhaps because it’s
a. accurate and b. carries punishingly long sentences.
Btw, this whole episode is astonishing in that the ‘Land of the Free’, the great United States of America is right at the heart of perhaps THE greatest scandal of all time. We listen to the moralising sermons coming from successive presidents down the years, often absolutely rightly, across every social, national and world platform, and we hear America is leading the way in doing good.
Until now, when the current US administration shames the nation it is supposed to represent with honesty, integrity and dignity. Ha. What a bad joke ‘president’ Obama has turned out to be.
We look, see and hear this climate data corruption that goes to the heart of the United States administration – all the way up to the president himself and wonder ‘how can this be’? What logical conclusion can be drawn – other than serial corruption, when official US government climate data collators are caught red-handed fiddling and manipulating data to falsely achieve pre-determined results, upon which hang careers, pensions, reputations and policies worth untold sums of money, and the government does NOTHING?
‘Steve Goddard’ is doing the world and his country one massive favour. Recognition will come in a big way.
If we had an honest court system and a government willing to clean up the corruption, I think about 50% of the federal, state and local bureaucrats would be headed for prison. Unfortunately the corruption in our government and in our schools is so deep and so well entrenched I thing it will take a nuke to disrupt it.
“…when official US government climate data collators are caught red-handed fiddling and manipulating data to falsely achieve pre-determined results, upon which hang careers, pensions, reputations and policies worth untold sums of money, and the government does NOTHING?”
Unfortunately, they have not yet been caught red-handed. What’s missing is an insider whistleblower. Just about any conspiracy that is broken by prosecution relies on insiders to come clean.
Notice in the Atlanta RICO data-fraud conspiracy case, that it was cracked wide open by insider “cooperating co-conspirators.”
“All the defendants who pleaded guilty have agreed to cooperate with prosecutors and testify against others at the upcoming racketeering conspiracy trial.”
RICO is the perfect prosecutorial tool for the climate data fraud conspiracy. However, it requires a prosecutor with appropriate jurisdiction to take it on.
Luckily, we have at our disposal the False Claims Act–which allows private citizens to bring civil suits against fraudulent government contractors (nearly all “climate researchers” are federal government contractors–their “grants” are federal contracts). What’s required for successful False Claims Act suits, usually, is an insider whistleblower. The False Claims Act law allows the whistleblower to share in the recoupment of fraudulently obtained federal funds.
Without an official investigation by a prosecutor, the next best thing is a False Claims suit. This allows discovery and opens up the issue for future criminal prosecution.
That’s why I’ve been searching for insider whistleblowers in the climate research industry for a few years.
If those of us on the reality side would focus our efforts to encouraging whistleblowers to come volunteer, this scam would be brought down much sooner.
Ok, thanks for the explanation. Just as someone released the Climategate emails (rather than they be ‘hacked’) It will come one day.
Unfortunately if it is a federal employee it just gets covered up and the employee transfered. Over the years there were plenty of reports of EPA employees reporting no existent endangered species. A friend had the mud puddle in his driveway classified as a ‘Wetland” and was not allowed to repair his drive. The Falliaces (Mad Sheep) the Henshaws (The Boar Wars) and many many other examples of a person being targeted and financially ruined who has done nothing wrong.
EPA Slammed By Lab Managers Fired After Criminal Raid
And a trip into the laughable
This defecating in the hallways is just horrible because I have been told that the building has marble and walnut paneling, restrooms every few feet and is ‘elegant’. No taxpayer dollars were spared to decorate this monument to the almighty Fed.gov
No doubt ‘Affirmative Action’ in action.
Many third worlders do not understand our toilets and need instruction. Just ask the farmers here in NC How to use the bathroom is the first thing they have to teach. (No, I am not being sarcastic, nasty or hateful. Third world toilets don’t work like ours.)
After thinking it over, this racketeering charge looks like a red herring. We are yelling about corruption at NASA/NOAA and we get… “Oh look a squirrel”
Also this can be hauled out and used to show corruption is found and punished. I think this bunch got tossed under the bus as a distraction and nothing more.
Sounds scary, if you are unfamiliar with the record of similar efforts by arrogant fools to take control of the entire globe over the history of mankind.
Scriptures of almost every religion describe the events you are about to witness in your lifetime.
So buy more popcorn, study the scriptures and watch the same drama unfold again.
Thank you, Kent, for sharing your rich experience with us.
Do you agree coincidence will decide the final outcome? If we do the right thing, without ego involvement, fate again decide the outcome.
That was a very awkward attempt to say we must avoid selfishness in ourselves, just do the next right thing, let go of all expectations and accept the outcome.
This is not my battle. It is not your battle. This is humanity’s battle against frightened world leaders that decided to take totalitarian control of the world in 1945 to save themselves and society from annihilation.
The Old Farmer’s Almanac, whose scientists have been far more accurate than ANY other group of climatologists, predicts 5-7 decades of global cooling …. they say that, if anything,mankind’s contributions to raise global temperatures will actually save lives in the colder regions of the world.
For those not involved in the CAGW conspiracy in 2007, please be reminded of the 2000 y2k data manipulation by Hansen and his crew uncovered by Steve McIntyre of Climateaudit.org. Following the disclosure by Steve McIntyre of raw vs adjusted data (pre and post 2000 temperature records) not being entered into the temperature history record correctly, resulting in 1934 again becoming the hottest year on record; Hansen and his crew merely found/made-up an algorithm that adjusted the data to give them the answers they needed to continue the lie.
How did Hansen justify this gross manipulation of data? Poof! Another magic trick.

Not sure if I get your drift….
Who’s throwing the herring?
And who’s distracted? And from what?
RICO, and the False Claims Act are the exact tools that must be used to crack the climate fraud.
Both require insider whistleblowers/cooperating witnesses.
The Atlanta Public Schools prosecution is an exact template for the only way to bring the climate fraudsters to account for their misdeeds.
I realize that Kent, but the MSM can either blow the story up to screaming headlines or bury it. They can also twist it into a pretzel.
I am looking at it from the point of view of the corrupt Politician/Propagandist:
“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” —- Rahm Emanuel
Climategate should have blown CAGW out of the water. The courts/universities should never have blocked State Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s attempt to look at Mikey Mann’s public university records ESPECIALLY after UVA administrators quickly agreed to turn over all archived records belonging to Dr. Patrick Michaels to Greenpeace.
The following illustrates the double standard, the twisting of situations, I was trying to get at.
How would RICO apply to the climate fraudsters?
This analysis would seem to show the exact application of RICO to situations in which federal officials and contractors conspire to commit crimes involving interstate commerce:
Click to access hutter_prosecuting_public_oficials_for_corruption.pdf
“Racketeer Influenced And Corrupt Organizations Act
(“RICO”) – 18 USC §1962
1)In 1970, Congress passed the RICO statute as part of the Organized Crime
Control Act. It was designed “to seek the eradication of organized crime by . . .
establishing new penal prohibitions, and by providing enhanced sanctions and
new remedies to deal with the unlawful activities of those engaged in organized
crime.” (United States v. Turkette, 452 U.S. 576, 589 ).
2) §1962 has four subdivisions. Subdivisions
(a) and (b) have been invoked to combat the infiltration of legitimate business by organized crime, and subdivisions (c) and (d), also designed for that organized crime purpose, have
been used as a tool against corrupt public officials.
3) §1962(c) makes it unlawful for any person, which includes a public official,
“employed by or associated with any enterprise engaged in, or the activities of
which affect interstate or foreign commerce, to conduct or participate . . . in the
conduct of such enterprise’s affairs through a pattern of rack
eteering activity”; and §1962(d) makes it unlawful for a person to conspire to violate subdivision (c) as well as subdivisions (a) and (b).
4) The elements of a RICO violation as charged against a public official are that the
(a) through the commission of two or more chargeable or indictable or punishable predicate offenses,
(i) The requisite offenses include mail or wire fraud and Hobbs Acts offenses;
(b) constituting a “pattern of racketeering”,
(i) The statute requires that a pattern include at least two acts of racketeering
activity, one of which occurred after the effective date of the statute (October 15, 1970), and the last of which occurred within ten years of a prior act of racketeering activity. The Supreme Court has held that a pattern “requires the showing of a relationship between the predicates, . .
. and of the threat of, continuing activity . . .” “Criminal conduct,” the Court explained, “forms a pattern if it embraces criminal acts that have the same or similar purposes, results,
participants, victims, or methods of commission, or otherwise are in
terrelated by distinguishing characteristics and are not isolated events.” (H.J. Inc. v. Northwestern
Bell Tel. Co., 492 U.S. 229, 239-240 ).
(ii) “Racketeering activity” includes conduct that is “indictable,” “chargeable” or “punishable” under various state and federal criminal laws. The acts of racketeering activity
are also referred to as predicate offenses, and the list incorporated into
the statute covers a wide array of illegal activity, including mail and
wire fraud, and Hobbs Act offenses.
(c) directly or indirectly in vests in, maintains an interest in, participates in,
conducts the affairs of, or acquires income used to acquire an interest in,
(d) an enterprise,
(i) An enterprise includes any individual partnership, corporation, otherlegal entities or group of
individuals or entities associated in fact, which encompasses a government office through which the official(s) conducted the racketeering activities.
(e) The activities of which affect interstate or foreign commerce,
(i) This provision has been liberally construed so that nearly any interstate involvement would satisfy the statute.
(ii) It is difficult to conceive of a government office in the United States whose activities would not be construed as affecting interstate commerce”
On 7 January 1998, the NASA Administrator himself, Dr. Daniel Goldin, angrily admonished Dr. Wes Huntress – Administrator for Solar System Research – for hiding data the Galileo probe of Jupiter collected in 1995.
Dr. Daniel Golden’s outburst was triggered by public embarrassment and recorded by CSPAN News video cameras.
If Congress seriously investigates NASA, Goldin and Huntress would be trying to blame the other for hiding evidence that confirmed the Sun made our elements, birthed the solar system, and controls every atom, life and world in the solar system today.
That’s probably why Skeeter thought he could just hide the US Constitution, and just graft on the Constitution of the Soviet Union. I mean anybody can lie to the world from the US capitol, brag about it on an interview on world television, and retire a multi-millionaire.
Sure seems that way, Gator
I was involve in a RICO case (including drug running and stolen car parts) and got NO WHERE. No interest, NONE. I could not even get charges pressed on the two guys who stole my semis and trailers. This despite tons of evidence including crossing state lines (Prepass evidence) and the vehicles in their possession with cops as witnesses. The court just plain refused to bring charges and jerked me around for over seven years.
The top dog was a heavy donor to the Democratic party…
I remember you commenting on your stolen trucks, but I didn’t know it was drug runners. They must have been the worst businessmen in the history of the planet, to not be able to buy trucks with the profits drug runners make. I’ve read stories about abandoned 707’s after just one successful run, at the profit margin they enjoy, transportation is usually considered disposable.
But now as I’m typing, I recall a girlfriend in college whose family’s Plymouth Horizon was stolen to run drugs! 😆
What they were after was my clean record with the DOT. They were running drugs from Florida to NYC and stolen car parts from NYC to Florida/NC. The load broker was in on it and provided loads to put in front of the contraband as cover.
It all fell apart when I demanded updated medical cards and Drug tests. They had runs scheduled and took off with the trucks after being told to park the trucks until they were up to date on the required medicals. It went downhill from there.
Stupid criminals! Don’t they know the real money is in government backed fraud?
According to the GAO, annual federal climate spending has increased from $4.6 billion in 2003 to $8.8 billion in 2010, amounting to $106.7 billion over that period. The money was spent in four general categories: technology to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, science to understand climate changes, international assistance for developing countries, and wildlife adaptation to respond to actual or expected changes. Technology spending, the largest category, grew from $2.56 billion to $5.5 billion over this period, increasingly advancing over others in total share. Data compiled by Joanne Nova at the Science and Policy Institute indicates that the U.S. Government spent more than $32.5 billion on climate studies between 1989 and 2009. This doesn’t count about $79 billion more spent for climate change technology research, foreign aid and tax breaks for “green energy.”
The Small Business Administration estimates that compliance with such regulations costs the U.S. economy more than $1.75 trillion per year — about 12%-14% of GDP, and half of the $3.456 trillion Washington is currently spending. The Competitive Enterprise Institute believes the annual cost is closer to $1.8 trillion…
If the past gets colder and colder, then how was the last two years ranked so high for Great Lakes ice coverage? Does not make any sense.

I share your enthusiasm for ending the era of “rule by deceit,” and do not want to discourage whistle-blowers from stepping forward, but I doubt if any court has the integrity to prosecute this case now.
None of us knows what the future holds but I suspect that a dramatic event triggered by the Sun’s pulsar core will end charade
Another dramatic event like abrupt reversal of Earth’s magnetic poles or abrupt exposure to high energy radiation as happened in 774 AD:
