In 1769, Joseph Priestley warned that scientists overly attached to a favorite hypothesis would not hesitate to “warp the whole course of nature.
There was never any question about the existence of the Medieval Warm Period. This graph was in the 1990 IPCC Report
Scientists have known about the MWP for centuries.
In the Swiss Alps the ice line has invaded summits formerly covered with magnificent forests, of which the massive trunks and sturdy roots are still found in situ.
Iceland and Eastern Greenland have become much colder since the fourteenth century; for in the former large trees have ceased to grow, while on the opposite shores of the latter a great number of valleys, once inhabited, are now completely inaccessible, owing to the intrusion of glaciers.

But the Medieval Warm Period destroyed global warming theory, so Michael Mann made it disappear.
I received an astonishing email from a major researcher in the area of climate change. He said, “We have to get rid of the Medieval Warm Period.”

the MBH (Mann Bradley Hughes) camp have a fundamental dislike for the very concept of the MWP, so I tend to view their evaluations as starting out from a somewhat biased perspective, i.e. the cup is not only “half-empty”; it is demonstrably “broken”.
I just don’t want to get into an open critique of the Esper data because it would just add fuel to the MBH attack squad. They tend to work in their own somewhat agenda-filled ways. We should also work on this stuff on our own, but I do not think that we have an agenda per se, other than trying to objectively understand what is going on.

Likewise, there was never any question about the existence of the spike in temperatures in 1940, and subsequent cooling. This graph was in the 1975 National Academy of Sciences Report
The “1940’s blip” wrecked global warming theory, so climate scientists made it disappear, through a series of repeated data tamperings.

It would be good to remove at least part of the 1940s blip, but we are still left with “why the blip”.
Likewise, there was never any doubt about the “global warming hiatus”
The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t

Satellites show the planet cooling in the 21st century
Had Crut 3 showed the planet cooling in the 21st century
This wrecked global warming theory, so the scientists massively altered the data again.
Climate science has been corrupted by a small handful of individuals, who have repeatedly and blatantly corrupted the temperature record to achieve political objectives.
“…..At the same time the FBI have discovered a fraud,
Located a drain where billions of dollars were poured.
Forensic evidence is now being gathered from the scene;
Thousands of grants and subsidies, all tainted with green….”
Could money have anything to do with this?
Ancient forest revealed 1,000 years after being ‘entombed’ in gravel as Alaskan glacier melts
The fraud grows. It is like the Blob in that old movie.
Is there a viable way to restore society to sanity (contact with reality rather than contact with the consensus definition of reality constructed by biased distribution of research grant funds)?
Does the lack of contact with reality threaten the survival of mankind?
If so, what can we do to change the situation?
Can the National Academy of Sciences (a private, self-perpetuating group of scholars) be removed from review of budgets of federal research agencies for Congress?
The NAS President, Dr. Ralph Cicerone, managed to stay in the background and avoid responsibility for the Climategate scandal, while continuing to direct federal research funds to support the AGW scam.
Reblogged this on Climate Collections.
Reblogged this on Climatism and commented:
By removing the 18+ year global warming “pause” (the giant elephant in the AGW room), the trashing of climate science and perhaps all ‘science’ is finally complete. All in the name of ideology, reputations and political agenda.
To not adjust the inputs of overheated computer models to match observed data, but rather adjust decades of observed, real-world data to match the computer models, is all that needs to be ‘observed’ to see the in-your-face-fraud these government scientists are undertaking.
Great post Tony, cheers ….
It’s not Fraud it’s Terrorism. All Terrorism is State Funded. It is created so ‘We The People’ beg for Big Brother to take over.
The whole cAGW-scam is a severe crime against humanity and the culprits must be prosecuted, period!
The problem, thojak, is that the deceit started in 1945 and we didn’t recognize that science was being used to deceive the public until 70 years later.
Well, if the deceit started back in 1945 (?) it’s even more of a ‘hi-noon’ to rev up the prosecution processes, isn’t it?
I agree with your assessment, but . . .
“Who is going to bell the cat?” or put the handcuffs on “Big Brother?” . . .
after seventy years of growth in the lush funds of federal research agencies?
Thojak, the worldwide crime against humanity began with a NEWS BLACKOUT of battlefield victories by Stalin’s USSR troops in Manchuria and Korea in AUG-SEPT 1945 that frightened world leaders into uniting nations [UN] and independent national academies of science [NAS] into an “Orwellian Ministry of Consensus Scientific Truths on 24 Oct 1945:

I.e., National Academies of Science were recruited worldwide to “save the world from nuclear annihilation” by forbidding public knowledge of the destructive force of nuclear energy that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki: NEUTRON REPULSION in cores of all atoms heavier than ~150 amu (atomic mass units) including URANIUM & PLUTONIUM.
HockeyStick, finally updated with modern trees, collapses…
“You’ll be shocked that after decades of studying 800 year old tree rings, someone has finally found some trees living as long ago as 2005. These rarest-of-rare tree rings have been difficult to find, compared to the rings circa Richard III. The US government may have spent $30 billion on climate research, but that apparently wasn’t enough to find trees on SheepMountain living between the vast treeless years of 1980 to now.
I’ve always thought it spoke volumes that many tree ring proxies ended in 1980, as if we’d cut down the last tree to launch the satellites in 1979. We all know that if modern tree rings showed that 1998 was warmer than 1278, the papers would have sprung forth from Nature, been copied in double page full-fear features in New Scientist, and would feature in the IPCC logo too.”
As I recall, the tree ring divergence is the specific decline in the “hide the decline” email. They argued that they weren’t hiding a decline in temperatures, they were hiding a decline in the ability of tree rings to predict current temperatures. Personally, I find that explanation even more troubling than if they really were hiding a decline in temperatures. If the tree rings diverge from measured temperatures during most of the calibration period, then what good are they? We threw out the graph that Steven started this page with, because it didn’t match the tree ring data. But somehow, we’re supposed to ignore the fact that, ACCORDING TO PHIL JONES, the tree ring data is fatally flawed.
Incidentally, I’ve yet to hear an explanation of why the tree rings stopped working around 1960. It sounds a lot like the argument that God put fossils in the ground, to trick us into believing that the Earth is more than 6000 years old.
While the left attempts to persuade the world that the cool summers we are experiencing are not happening the people experiencing early frosts are having their doubts.
Snow ha been recorded in every month in North Dakota, except August. If the august snows come global warming is toast.
No, they will just say global warming is causing climate change, and some places will get colder, even as the planet warms up.
I know this because they are already saying that.
