    times have been rough over at the CAGW compound. mother nature just hasnt been co-operating like she did back in the good ol' days. the public has been hearing more and more conflicting results and disturbing reports of scientific impropriety in climate research.

    what can CAGW luminary James Hansen do to bolster the rather limp data coming in? he has a brilliant idea! Muller's BEST project derived even higher temps than the other groups producing global temp data sets, and BEST was seen to be leaning towards the skeptical side. how did they do it? to make a long story short, the BEST algorithms chop up data histories and discard suspicious inputs. because there is a positive trend cooler data are much more likely to get discarded than warmer ones and the average goes up. just what Hansen needs!

    Greenland data are sparse, noisy and often incomplete. perfect to try out this new idea. but I guess it was too much work so he just took out the (suspicious) data from the early 80's and then subtracted 1C from all the pre-1980 numbers. voila! the Nuuk temperature chart looks much better now.

    here is a look at the 'adjustments'.

    funny how so many years need exactly 1C fixing, isnt it?

    here is a graph from 2008 for those who think the comparator 'before' numbers might be wrong.

    and the link to read the interesting article on how the AMO seems to affect arctic temps. Google Image Result for http://images.intellicast.com/App_Images/Article/128_1.gif

    its funny how the early 80's data was suspicious but the late 00's, where it goes up 3.5C one year and right back down 3.5C the next is just fine.

    this points out one of the main failings of making correction over correction over adjustment to all the temperature readings from the last 150 years. DO THEY MAKE SENSE IN THE REAL WORLD?????

    I really cant understand why no one else but me finds this interesting and informative. oh well.

    google earth picture of the weather station in NUUK. propwash anyone?

    read the article to find out just how lazy and inept GISS is at collating and QCing temp data. Watts Up With Nuuk? | Watts Up With That?

    I downloaded this graph from GISS homepage 18jan12

    [​IMG]

    I couldnt find a total length graph for Dublin but this one certainly looks a lot more like the old GISS rather than the new and improved GISS

    if crap like this can just be added at any time, how do we know what the real temps or trends are? a while back I showed a bunch of the changes Hansen put in during the 00's and how they changed the trend lines. this appears to be yet another wholesale change that affects not only today but all the climate papers that used GISS temps in the past. as far as I know you cant just download the numbers that were charted on a specific date or edition of the GISS dataset, so how are you supposed to figure out what numbers an article used?

    old Port Elizabet, South Africa

    new Port Elizabet

    the problem is finding the old graphs, after that its simple. no wonder Africa and the Arctic are dark red on the GISS maps.

    closer to home

    not as obvious as some of the others. the early part is dropped and the recent part is raised. remember! these corrections are just in the last year!
