NASA Junk Science – Worse Than It Seems

NASA has doubled 1890-1980 global warming since 1981, simply by altering their data set progressively over time.


But it is worse than it seems. Let’s focus on the changes from 2002 to 2014


Note on the pre-1950 changes, they have altered the data well beyond their own error bars, which are the blue lines in the 2002 graph and the green lines in 2014 graph.

They pretend to be doing something mathematically rigorous, when in fact they are simply manipulating data to suit a political agenda. Policy Based Evidence Making

    Soon they will be announcing we landed on Mars in 1969.

    DENVER (AP) – Scientists are working to pinpoint the source of a giant mass of methane hanging over the southwestern U.S., which a study found to be the country’s largest concentration of the greenhouse gas.

    The report that revealed the methane hot spot over the Four Corners region – where Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Arizona meet – was released last year.

    Now, scientists from the University of Colorado, the University of Michigan, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA are conducting a monthlong study to figure out exactly where it came from.

    The answer could help reduce methane emissions that contribute to global warming.

    What global warming?

      Hahaha! Loved that article. Said “gas cloud” was observed by a now decommissioned satellite between 2006 and 2009…and no mention of current state of the art satellites noticing it…ever! Scientists plan to burn massive amounts of fossil fuels flying over it, driving to it etc to study it. And article states such emissions can occur naturally.
      Thanks for the morning chuckle.

    • GeologyJim says:

      The San Juan Basin looks like a dartboard from 40,000 ft with more than one oil/gas pad location per square mile. Companies drill there because oil and gas are plentiful there

      Natural seepage has long been recognized in the San Juan Basin [as with most productive oil/gas fields]

      The basin is ringed by mountain uplifts, so atmospheric inversion is commonplace.

      Hmmmmmm, so what could possibly explain the elevated methane concentrations???


      BTW, it galls me to read incessantly that “methane is more powerful than CO2 as a GHG”. C’mon people!! Methane is measured in parts per BILLION, so its long-wavelength absorption characteristics are immaterial. It is hundreds of times rarer than CO2 and millions of times rarer than water vapor, so “powerful” is not just inaccurate, it’s a GIANT LIE!

    People need to go to jail. How many people work for GISS?
    Real Science is the main site pointing out the outrageous claims made by NASA. I would expect them to read this site on a regular basis…

    The Hope Forjohncleese open letter to federal scientists:

    Dear GISS Surface Temperature Team,
    I would suggest a few of you turn whistle blower now, before the light of truth exposes the damage your “science” has caused to the American taxpayer. There will likely be a new Attorney General in 2017. An AG who hopefully will take a dim view of the Lois Lerner types on the Government Payroll.

    I’m old enough to remember the “Coming Ice Age” story in the early 1970’s. Luckily, we didn’t get bombarded by PR machines back then. The refinement of PR is one of the more disappointing aspects of modern-day life….

    What strikes me about the first animation in this post is that Hansen’s 1981 graph clearly shows the reason for scientists of the day predicting an Ice Age – temperatures had dropped alarmingly – about 0.25 degrees C in 25 years (0.45F). There were 2 distinct down legs to the drop in temperatures, with a slight rise midway through the overall drop.

    The GISS graph of 2014 (lovingly homogenised) now shows a drop of just a tick over 0.1 degree C in 25 years. The drop no longer has 2 distinct down legs with a slight rise midway. The midway point is now the same temperature as the starting point in 1940.
    I’m left to wonder: which temperature record – Hansen 1981, or GISS 2014 – historically matches what the scientists of the time were seeing? Was the evidence for that scare REAL or manufactured?

    In the past Steve has linked to this archived story in Time magazine:,23657,944914,00.html

    The Time article says this: –
    “Since the 1940s the mean global temperature has dropped about 2.7° F. Although that figure is at best an estimate, it is supported by other convincing data. ”

    Big difference between the drops in temperature from 1940 to early 1970’s.
    Time 1974 – 2.7 degrees F (estimate)
    Hansen 1981 – 0.45 degrees F (???)
    GISS 2014 – 0.18 degrees F (homogenised)

    Was Hansen already doing “favourable adjustments” in 1981, I wonder?

      the phrase “hide the decline” comes to mind.

    • Snowleopard says:

      Unfortunately I’m old enough to remember the “Ice Age Scare” too. But I suspect that the CIA climate report produced then (1974?) was accurate. It talked about little ice age conditions returning in fifty to sixty years (about now), not immediately. Though not stated, it seems they knew another short warm period would occur first. The same year the Club of Rome boys introduced their “CO2 causes global warming” meme at one of their world population reduction conferences. It was slowly ramped up worldwide to the propaganda extravaganza you see today. Do you think the timing was a coincidence?

    The wonders of modern science are amazing. Alter the data to achieve your predetermined result. Such geniuses.

  6. njsnowfan says:

    Is there to link up NWS data records and GISS data. ( you will have only US but solid true data)NWS keeps very straight records and they are guarded by meteorologist from being altered.
    You should talk Ryan maue, he is a NWS data genius.

  7. omanuel says:

    After WWII and formation of the UN in 1945, the US NAS joined other national academies of science to use public research funds to hide the Sun’s source of energy.

    Forty to fifty-five years ago in 1960-1975, isotope analysis of meteorites indicated meteorites formed from fresh, poorly mixed supernova debris at the very birth of the solar system.

    A NAS scientist falsely claimed the data could be explained by super-heavy element fission in meteorites.

    The superheavy element fable was openly debated in 1977. Here is the “Superheavy Element Fission” debate that the US National Academy of Sciences lost in 1977:

    “Strange xenon, extinct super-heavy elements, and the solar neutrino puzzle,” Science 195, 208-210 (1977):

    But NAS never admitted defeat and thus survived to deceive again with the AGW fable.

    This time, NAS must admit their participation in deception of the public, or NAS must be barred from any control over the distribution of public funds to federal research agencies in the future.

  8. omanuel says:

    The last issue of Science in December 1975 was devoted to the SHE fable, just as the AGW fable gets headlines in Science & Nature in 2015.

    Winning the AGW debate in 2015 is as useless as winning the SHE debate in 1977, if NAS is allowed to

    1. Continue to review budgets of federal research agencies for Congress, and

    2. Avoid responsibility for $quandering billion$ in public funds to deceive the public.

  9. Marsh says:

    Seriously, I thought that the heads of NASA, were going to rein-in the Dept. that is responsible for doctoring & exaggerating Climate Change ; it’s obvious that “integrity” is not a key priority !

    • darrylb says:

      Marsh, The Giss temp records are the worst in terms of manipulation, Hadcrut 3 and 4 is not as bad.
      I have two former students employed by NASA and they are removed from and not aware of the shenanigans. —and never see each other.

    • darrylb says:

      Marsh, Integrity is not a key priority, money is

  10. darrylb says:

    Roy Spencer, on his blog noted the historical change in recorded temperatures from 2014 to 2015 in the corn belt. It never stops.

    My editorial: “A Heart To Heart,” written for laymen, in the May issue of SPACEFLIGHT, may stir up a hornet’s nest. In the late nineties, moon walker Harrison Schmitt, personally informed me at a NASA meeting, that NASA had accomplished very little, addressing the medical hazards of space flight. Unfortunately, things haven’t changed, exemplified by their 2015 paper— stressing that magnesium (Mg) deficits don’t occur with space flight. Clearly, NASA researchers were misled by a highly dependable tissue Mg study which can only be used on Earth. If used in Space, in transit or on the moon, Mars, or an asteroid, exact Earth gravity MUST be duplicated. I stated in my editorial, that this NASA paper clearly fits the definition of “ junk science.” (
