NOAA Caught Lying about Temperature Again

Timothy Birdnow

Yet again, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been caught trying to defrost planetary temperatures to make them fit with their doomsday models of global warming. Paul Homewood at Not a Lot of People Know That proved NOAA is lying.

From the article:

According to NOAA, last month’s mean temperature was just slightly less than the 1901-2000 average, similar to the overall Northeast trend.

In my previous work, I compared current temperatures with January 1943. According to NOAA, the average temperature for Central Lakes was 20.8F last month, compared with 18.7F in January 1943.

In other words, it was 2.1F warmer last month than in 1943.

The actual temperatures recorded in January 1943 are below, and come from the Monthly Climatology Report for NY State at the time.

[...] "So the average mean temperature last month was 19.6F, which means it was 1.0F colder than in January 1943.

Recall that NOAA say Central Lakes was 2.1F warmer last month than in January 1943. That makes a total difference of 3.1F.

We can check last month’s temperature against the original station record, shown below.

This shows an average of 20F, slightly higher than NRCC. However, note that the entry for 1st Jan is missing. It was exceptionally cold that day. If we add that back, we end up with an average of 19.4F. (The daily numbers all seem to agree, so I presume there is a small rounding error here)"

So at the three sites of Ithaca, Auburn and Geneva, we find that January 2018 was colder than January 1943 by 1.0, 1.7 and 1.3F respectively.


Yet NOAA say that the division was 2.1F warmer last month. NOAA’s figure makes last month at least 3.1F warmer in comparison with 1943 than the actual station data warrants.

Clearly NOAA’s highly homogenised and adjusted version of the Central Lakes temperature record bears no resemblance at all the the actual station data.

And if this one division is so badly in error, what confidence can there be that the rest of the US is any better?

end excerpts.

So what does this tell us class? It's pretty clear NOAA is trying to take data. There really is no other conclusion.

Global warming is the key to everything and the Progressives know it. Funding, globalism, "sustainability", big government and all the perks that go with it are ensured if the public accepts the premise that the Man is destroying the climate and only intrusive, massive, world girdling government is the solution to save our very lives. The people pushing this realize that reality is not cooperating, but they have the Millenials buffaloed and hope to keep pushing this long enough for the critics to die out. They really do plan to lie their way to imperium.

We've had this stupidity since the 1980's, a full generation, and none of the predictions made by the alarmists have come true, yet they keep pushing it and moving the goalposts. Eventually the naive youths of today will be running things and will enshrine the Green despotic dreams into law. That it will take over fifty years is immaterial; the payoff is too great. They will never let this go.

And of course there are true believers who won't be swayed.

Such a scandal should lead to defunding of NOAA. Heads need to roll, because these are agencies paid for with our tax dollars and we have a right to expect honesty from them. The Republicans and Trump need to take action.
