The latest government fraud being pimped by the press is the NOAA Climate Extremes Index (CEI.) This is a completely fraudulent index designed to mask the recent lack of heat and other extreme weather in the US.
NOAA shows that the area of the US experiencing unusually hot summer afternoons has increased to record levels.
percentage of the United States with maximum temperatures much above normal.
The actual NOAA data set shows the exact opposite. The area of the country reaching 100 degrees has plummeted to record lows. None of the published NOAA adjustments should have any impact on this metric. They have no excuses for this fraud.
The same is true for 95 degree days. The area of the US reaching 95 degrees has also plummeted and near record lows.
Not only has the area affected by hot weather plummeted, by the frequency of hot weather has also plummeted.
The US has been enjoying very mild summers with record low numbers of hurricanes and tornadoes, so NOAA simply made up a 100% fraudulent data set (CEI) to distract attention. NOAA (Department of Commerce) reports directly to Barack Obama.
