Climate change

There I was a couple of days ago saying that mainstream climate science had accepted there was a hiatus or pause in global warming and hey presto, just in time for the Paris scare mongering festival in the autumn along comes NOAA, in collaboration with the journal Science, with an article saying the warming was there all along – but nobody could see it. They have achieved this by altering the data set. Out go the ocean buoys, set up to monitor temperatures by the climate research people, and in come marine engine temperatures (with a biased an inbuilt warming generated by the engines, monitors that were not designed to take ocean temperatures but for other purposes). On top of that we have some messing around with temperatures at the North Pole (which is open water and sea ice without a weather station for miles and the obvious place to twiddle and dee). See http://judithcurry.com/2015/06/04/has-noaa-busted-the-pause-in-global-wa…

All this is reminiscent of the hockey stick shenanigins which sought to disappear the Medieval Warm Period and the Little Ice Age by fudging the data set. It is happening all over again. Can they really think they can get away with it twice on the hop?

Well, they the paper in Science will certainly please the faithful – and all those that don't actually explore the science. See also www.rossmckitrick.com/uploads/4/8/0/8/4808045/mckitrick_comments_on_karl… (which can be found on the home page) … and variously, www.thegwpf.com/reports-of-the-end-of-the-global-warming-pause-are-great…https://bobtisdale.wordpress.com/2015/06/04/noaancdcs-new-pause-buster-p… …. and www.joannenova.com.au/2015/06/seven-steps-to-adjust-the-pause-away-by-ka… …. and if you can bear all that there is more at Watts and Bishop Hill and Tall Bloke and lots of other blogs and web sites. The global warmers seem fairly warm and happy with themselves – adjusting the data is after all, second nature. It's making money that comes first – and there is still shed loads of it out there.

I'm still finding sites having fun with the new NOAA discovery that taking temperature from marine engines contributes to warming while environmentalist buoys are deemed unworthy as they show the pause. See also www.theregister.co.uk/2015/06/05/trick_cyclists_make_global_warming_paus… … and even more unlikely, on the political site hosted by Fawkes (and team) at www.order-order.com/2015/06/05/fraudster-boffins-fiddle-climate-figures/ … and you can't get much plainer than that. However, don't read the comments if you are sensitive as they have a liberal use of swear words. One can imagine a little old guy hammering on his keyboard and venting spleen – but that is what the Internet enables (people to become somebody else when online).
