Goddard Adjustments vs. Atmospheric CO2

Problematic Adjustments And Divergences (Now Includes June Data)

Guest Post by Professor Robert Brown of Duke University and Werner Brozek, Edited by Just The Facts: Image Credit: Steven Goddard As can be seen from the graphic above, there is a strong correlation between carbon dioxide increases and adjustments to the United States Historical Climatology Network (USHCN) temperature record. And these adjustments to the surface…

Impact of “Pause-Buster” Adjustment on GISS Monthly Data

Guest Post By Walter Dnes: Image Credit and a special thanks to Josh With GISS incorporating NOAA/NCEI “Pause-Buster” adjustments for their monthly anomalies as of June 2015 data, our friend Daft made another appearance. Also, I noticed that my temperature-tracking spreadsheet at home, and on Google Docs both needed to have their Y-axes extended, because…

Is NOAA’s Hiatus Gone? (Now Includes May Data)

Guest Post by Werner Brozek, Edited by Just The Facts: The above are plots of what the slopes NOAA’s surface temperature anomalies look like for the three intervals 1975 to 2000; 1950 to 2000; and 2000 to 2015. The top one is before adjustments and the bottom one is after adjustments, seemingly in an attempt…

UAH, MSU, TLT, and other Acronyms

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach The satellite-based atmospheric temperature dataset is one of the better datasets in climate science. Drs. Roy Spencer and John Christy have long been scientific heroes of mine because of the quality of their work in the creation, analysis, corrections, and curation of the dataset.  It is kept at the University…

Progress on the problems with Australia’s ACORN-SAT surface air temperature records

Dr David R.B. Stockwell writes, Progress on the surface temperature front as follows: Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for the Environment Bob Baldwin established a Technical Advisory Forum comprised of leading scientists and statisticians to review  and provide advice on Australia’s official temperature data set in January following recommendations by an independent peer review. The Forum’s report has been…
