Karl et al. do not know that we have two hiatuses, not one

Guest essay by Arno Arrak Abstract Karl et al. present data they claim denies the existence of the warming pasuse or hiatus that has existed for 18 years. It is characterized by the observation that while atmospheric carbon dioxide keeps ioncreasing there is no parallel increase of warming as demanded by the greenhouse theory of…

Thanks partly to NOAA's new adjusted dataset, tommorrow they'll claim to reporters that May (and possibly June) was the 'hottest ever'

However, satellite data don’t agree with that finding People send me stuff. Today I got an email with an advance link to the NOAA/NCDC “state of the climate” briefing- that monthly phone call where Tom Karl’s NCDC staff spoon feeds unquestioning newsies like AP’s Seth Borenstein the latest worry over climate. Unsurprisingly, May 2015 is…

NOAA Releases New Pause-Buster Global Surface Temperature Data and Immediately Claims Record-High Temps for May 2015 – What a Surprise!

Under the heading of Global Summary Information, they note: Note: With this report and data release, the National Centers for Environmental Information is transitioning to improved versions of its global land (GHCN-M version 3.3.0) and ocean (ERSST version…

Twin peaks – twin prevarications

Supposedly record-high temperature and carbon dioxide levels supposedly bring record chaos Guest essay by Paul Driessen and Tom Tamarkin A recent NOAA article is just what Doctor Doom ordered. It claims the 18-year “hiatus” in rising planetary temperatures isn’t really happening. (The “pause” followed a 20-year modest temperature increase, which followed a prolonged cooling period.)…

Bespoke Science…Made-to-Order Science

Guest essay by Charles G. Battig, M.D. A flurry of recent publication activity on the health impacts of carbon dioxide by the catastrophic climate change community is evidence that it has now moved beyond post-normal science. That was the philosophical answer to traditional science founded on rational hypotheses, reproducible experimentation, and impartial confirmation of results.…

Gavin says the funniest things!

Guest post by David Middleton NOAA temperature record updates and the ‘hiatus’ Filed under: Climate modelling Climate Science Instrumental Record — gavin @ 4 June 2015 In a new paper in Science Express, Karl et al. describe the impacts of two significant updates to the NOAA NCEI (née NCDC) global temperature series. The two updates…
