How to concoct a false narrative

At created-via-data-manipulation-dismissing-the-sun/ ... the headline to this blog post is - scientists reveal how man made global warming is created via data manipulation and by dismissing the sun from their models. The study was published in Earth Sciences Review, which had the title, 'Re-evaluating the Role of Solar Variability in the Northern Hemispheres temperature trends since the 19th century' - which noted i) the instrumental temperature record has undergone heavy adjustments (such as urban temperature recording station bias) to allow a better fit with climate models that presume co2 emissions drive global temperatures. ii) co2 based climate models do not adequately correlate with northern hemisphere temperature trends of the last 130 years. Solar activity does (or they claim it does) especially when urban bias has been removed.

Although there were 126 fully rural stations with data from 1951-1990 there are just 13 and 17 fully rural stations with records between 1907-1950 and 1991-2014 respectively. None of the stations prior to 1907 were fully rural. 

The authors of the study set about constructing temperature trends solely from rural monitors (which are not influenced by modern urban heating) and came up with a warming period between the 1880s and 1940s, and the 1980s to 2000s. It also implied a more intense cooling period between the 1950s and 1970s (when snowy winters were more common in Britain). Of course, climate scientist know this as climate scientist HH Lamb has it all written down for them to read - if they are inclined to do so. The fact they ignore HH Lamb, doctor the data, manipulate the temperature stations to their liking, and have an algorithm that continuously makes older temperatures cooler, year by year, every year, actually cooling the already cooled data on an annual fest, shows that they are promulgating politics rather than science, concocting a false narrative.  Yet, incredibly, people believe them.

This week we have had the scientist clown that was at the elbow of Tony Blair actually admit the evidence he provided on diesel emissions was completely and totally false - but he is retired on a nice fat pension and has no worries about a career anymore. See various blogs this week - and he is damned by the newspapers also, and the Fair Fuel organisation to boot.
