The criminals at NOAA have outdone themselves with their August temperature fraud, showing record heat over the land surface – by a wide margin.
So how did NOAA accomplish this fraud? They have no data for most of the land surface of the Earth. Note that 80% of Africa has no data, and about half of Australia and South America.
So what did NOAA do? They simply filled in the missing areas of Africa, Australia and South America with their red crayon. The White House told them to create record heat, and they did through massive fraud.
But if we look at satellite data, we see that Australia and much of Africa was cold in August. Russia was cold. Most of Asia was cold.
So where was it hot in August? The US is one of the few places where NOAA actually has good coverage, and we had an extreme lack of hot weather here this summer.
NOAA has stepped over the line and is simply generating propaganda for the White House now. They are no longer making any attempt to do science or present a picture of reality. It is reminiscent of the fraudulent data the Bush White House generated ahead of the Iraq invasion.
If the White House has an agenda, they will use government agencies to create whatever lies are necessary to push their agenda through.
