    Doctored Data, Not U.S. Temperatures, Set a Record This Year - Forbes

    “Americans just lived through the hottest 12 months ever recorded, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported Tuesday,” according to the May 15 Los Angeles Times.

    Which begs the question, what does “recorded” mean?

    To most people, the hottest temperatures ever “recorded” would imply that quality controlled thermometers registered higher readings during the past year than had ever occurred before. If you believe that this is what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) means by hottest temperatures ever “recorded,” then you are wrong.

    Raw temperature data show that U.S. temperatures were significantly warmer during the 1930s than they are today. In fact, raw temperature data show an 80-year cooling trend. NOAA is only able to claim that we are experiencing the hottest temperatures on record by doctoring the raw temperature data.

    Doctoring real-world temperature data is as much a part of the alarmist playbook as is calling skeptical scientists at Harvard, Princeton, Columbia, MIT, NASA, NOAA, etc., “anti-science.” Faced with the embarrassing fact that real-world temperature readings don’t show any U.S. warming during the past 80 years, the alarmists who oversee the collection and reporting of the data simply erase the actual readings and substitute their own desired readings in their place. If this shocks you, you are not alone.

    Interesting piece, thanks. Unfortunately I'm already too jaded by the complete dishonesty in the climate "debate" to be shocked at this.

    And yet, the author of the op-ed in Forbes is in fact a blogger from "The Heartland Institute".

    Who gives a fuck? The fact is the data in all the major climate data bases is doctored. It's "homogenized." The fact has been demonstrated over and over again.

    what part of the article do you warmists disagree with? you always just besmirch the character of the author of something that you dont like, rather than rebut the ideas. do you disagree that the past has been cooled and the recent readings have been warmed? repeatedly?

    OR you just pop in a century worth of warming in a 2 year period. Like in my favorite stinky example of bad data doctoring..

    [​IMG]

    That is the difference between the OFFICIAL US Surface Temp record and the simpler prep done at UAH using population density adjustment on the raw data.

    Thermometers are NOT that complicated --even when they're installed in a weather station. HERE --- SOMEONE has added nearly an entire CENTURY of warming between 1996 - 1998.

    You believe the OFFICIALLY MANGLED version -- or the well - behaved version?

    Oh my. NASA, ESA, and all the rest are in on this nefarious plot to doctor the data. As well as all the Scientific Societies, all the National Academies of Science, and all the major Universities of the world.

    We have only you little tinfoil hat wearers to protect from the filthy plots of these pinko commie fascist liars. Get out your Bible, silver cross, and wooden stake. Something must be done to keep reality from entering the minds of the masses.
