NOAA Caught Adjusting Big Freeze out of Existence

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has yet again been caught exaggerating  ‘global warming’ by fiddling with the raw temperature data.

This time, that data concerns the recent record-breaking cold across the northeastern U.S. which NOAA is trying to erase from history.

If you believe NOAA’s charts, there was nothing particularly unusual about this winter’s cold weather which caused sharks to freeze in the ocean and iguanas to drop out of trees.

New Paper: 1,407 Contiguous U.S. Temp Stations Reveal NO WARMING TREND During 1901-2015

The Warming ‘Hole’ Myth: Non-Warming Regions Are More Rule Than Exception

Earlier this month, the authors of a new paper (Partridge et al., 2018) published in Geophysical Research Letters promulgated the term “warming hole” to describe the cooling temperatures gripping most of the Eastern half of the United States from the late 1950s through 2015.

“We present a novel approach to characterize the spatiotemporal evolution of regional cooling across the eastern U.S. (commonly called the U.S. warming hole), by defining a spatially explicit boundary around the region of most persistent cooling.

Enviro Group’s Misleading Marcellus Methane Report Based on Outdated Study

Marcellus shale region

The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) released an analysis this week that claims, “Pennsylvania’s oil and gas companies emit at least five-times more methane pollution than they report to the state.”

But EDF’s analysis is misleading, considering it’s based on an outdated report that overestimated emissions and the fact that only the unconventional oil and gas industry – which represents 82 percent of new wells drilled since 2015 and 72 percent of the wells drilled in 2015 – is required to report emissions to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

US Temperature Records Will Be Broken As The West Freezes And East Warms

Freezing temps across California

Records will be broken across the country this week, as wintry weather sets in along the West Coast and the warmth moves out east.

After a deep freeze, the U.S. East Coast is warming up and forecasts project record-warm daily low temperatures for February over the next couple of days. Much of the deep south can expect temperatures in the mid-60s when they wake up Tuesday morning, according to Weather.us.

Gina McCarthy signing new agency regulations.

A former Environmental Protection Agency administrator during President Barack Obama’s administration flew first class on at least two international flights, according to a report Friday from E&E News.

Gina McCarthy, a former EPA administrator, flew first class on an international flight in 2016 when she led the U.S. delegation to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro that was paid for by the State Department. She typically flew economy class on flights, an ex-EPA official told E&E News.

Jeremy Corbyn will nationalize UK’s energy companies to avoid climate disaster

Jeremy Corbyn will nationalize all of Britain’s energy companies in order to avoid the “climate catastrophe” threatened by global warming, the Labour leader said. Corbyn used his appearance at his party’s “alternative models of ownership” conference in central London, to promise that he will buy up Britain’s entire energy network. “The challenge of climate change requires us to radically shift the way we organize our economy,” he said. —Business Insider, 10 February 2018

Warmists foiled again: Answer to what’s causing frog populations to decline is just plain embarrassing

You know the drill because we’ve seen the same story so many times.  Reports come in that scientists have discovered declining populations of a species of some sort somewhere.

Scientists study.

For quite some time, they come up with no good answer.  Concern grows.

For maximum publicity and popular hand-wringing, it helps to be cuddly, cute, exotic, beautiful, or funny critters.  But even if they are repulsive, sooner or later, global warming is blamed.

Democrat-Led Science Association Gives Top Honor To Conspiracy-Monger Michael Mann

Climate activist Michael Mann

If you need another example of scientific establishment’s deteriorating credibility since the election of Donald Trump, here it is: The world’s largest science organization is bestowing a top honor on a climate propagandist who spends lots of his time making hateful, inflammatory comments about the president, his family, his administration and GOP lawmakers on social media.

Overheated claims on temperature records

Now that the excitement has died down over the news that Earth’s surface temperature made 2017 one of the hottest years on record, it is time for sober second thoughts.

Did the January 18 announcement by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that 2017 was our planet’s third-hottest year since 1880, and NASA’s claim that it was the second hottest year, actually mean anything?

Although the Los Angeles Times called 2017 “a top-three scorcher for planet Earth,” neither the NOAA nor the NASA records are significant. One would naturally expect the warmest years to come during the most recent years of a warming trend.
