Global Warming Facts: Newly Published Research Substantiates Claim - NOAA, NASA, and HADLEY Rigged The Data

ABSTRACT
 
The objective of this research was to test the hypothesis that Global Average Surface Temperature (GAST) data, produced by NOAA, NASA, and HADLEY, are sufficiently credible estimates of global average temperatures such that they can be relied upon for climate modeling and policy analysis purposes. The relevance of this research is that the validity of all three of the so- called Lines of Evidence in EPA’s GHG/CO2 Endangerment Finding require GAST data to be a valid representation of reality.

In this research report, the most important surface data adjustment issues are identified and past changes in the previously reported historical data are quantified. It was found that each new version of GAST has nearly always exhibited a steeper warming linear trend over its entire history. And, it was nearly always accomplished by systematically removing the previously existing cyclical temperature pattern. This was true for all three entities providing GAST data measurement, NOAA, NASA and Hadley CRU.

As a result, this research sought to validate the current estimates of GAST using the best available relevant data. This included the best documented and understood data sets from the U.S. and elsewhere as well as global data from satellites that provide far more extensive global coverage and are not contaminated by bad siting and urbanization impacts. Satellite data integrity also benefits from having cross checks with Balloon data.

The conclusive findings of this research are that the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation of reality. In fact, the magnitude of their historical data adjustments, that removed their cyclical temperature patterns, are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data. Thus, it is impossible to conclude from the three published GAST data sets that recent years have been the warmest ever –despite current claims of record setting warming.

Finally, since GAST data set validity is a necessary condition for EPA’s GHG/CO2 Endangerment Finding, it too is invalidated by these research findings.

RELEVANCE OF THIS RESEARCH
The assumption that Global Average Surface Temperature Data is valid is critical to all Three Lines of Evidence in EPA’s GHG/CO2 Endangerment Finding. This may be easily seen by reviewing each Line of Evidence.

Stated simply, first, the Tropical Hot Spot (THS) is claimed to be a fingerprint or signature of atmospheric and Global Average Surface Temperatures (GAST) warming caused by increasing GHG/CO2 concentrations.
 Second, higher atmospheric CO2 and other GHG concentrations are claimed to have been the primary cause of the claimed record setting GAST over the past 50 plus years.

Third, climate models are said to be valid for policy analysis purposes, that is, their predictions of the impact of rising CO2 levels on future GAST levels are said to be credible. Thus, GAST is the critical variable in all the climate models EPA has relied upon. These are the climate models that EPA relied upon in its policy analysis supporting, for example, its Clean Power Plan --recently put on hold by a Supreme Court stay. These climate models were also critical to the Social Cost of Carbon estimates EPA had used to justify a multitude of regulations across U.S. Government agencies.

Clearly, if GAST data is not valid, neither is the Endangerment Finding.

Words of A Swede Who Has Fallen in Love With America

Excerpts:

I went back and forth between Sweden and the U.S., between socialism and freedom, and it was like growing up not only on two sides of the world, but on two sides of history.

I saw America helping to change the world and saving lives while Europe engaged in knee-jerk liberal analysis and Monday-morning quarterbacking. And every time the U.S. unapologetically went its own way, I smiled with pride, sleeping soundly at night knowing that just like in my bedtime stories, there was a hero out there who would always show up just in time to save the day.
 
In the past years I have seen the country I love so much change, moving toward the country I grew up in. I saw a president get elected on promises of change, and apparently things had changed enough by 2012 to get him reelected too. Despite his exit the changes have lingered, making commonplace what should be absurd and eccentric. Well, guess what? I know the change that your former president speaks of. I have lived it, and I live it still. .

I know what happens when government trumps the individual, I know what it means when you apologize for the values that built your land, and I have seen the horrific results of a nation equating exceptionalism with brutality and deeming values moronic and obsolete.

I know one thing especially well: If you grow up in a country that doesn’t ask anything of you, you end up living an entire life without asking anything of yourself — expecting nothing, excelling at nothing, with no repercussions for failure and no incentive for growth. It kills your very soul.

I also know, however, that there is a way back and a road forward, and I know you have it in you, because you taught me what it means to be free. It is in your very nature to reject bullies, dogmas, and emperors in the buff, regardless of their political affiliation. We look to you to lead us, and I know that you will. “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”;

I hope every single one of you get how amazing that is, in word and in meaning. To me, it captures what it is to be human, by highlighting not only our need for freedom and our right to life, but also the massive capability every single person is born with. This is something no government entity can ever replace, and no well-spoken leader should ever be given the power or pulpit to question.

You are exceptional, and coming to America taught me that I could be exceptional, too. Thank you for that. Thank you.

— Annika Hernroth-Rothstein is a political consultant and writer who lives in Sweden.

Old News - There Is Violent Disagreement



 


 


From the desk of George Friedman

 


 

July 4, 2017  These are hardly the most trying times in U.S. history.

Many believe there have never been more contentious times than those in which we now live. It’s a belief shared by most everyone of every era. I admit that times are strange, and in some ways they are unlike any other. But are they as bad as the late 1960s and early 1970s, the decade of assassinations and riots, of slain war protesters and Richard Nixon? Are they as bad as McCarthyism or the Great Depression or the Civil War?

The United States was born not in peace but in strife. Inside the hall in which the Constitution was debated and, in 1788, produced, there was disagreement, even suspicion. Outside the hall, some people trusted the Founding Fathers, while others believed they were corrupt, self-serving men, using a piece of paper to protect their wealth and power, ensuring people’s perpetual impoverishment.

And the United States has stood for nearly 250 years. It has existed in four very different centuries. It has survived civil war and world wars, depressions and expansions, many wise presidents and many foolish ones, and the noise of many malicious and self-righteous mobs. And throughout it all, its leaders and citizenry disagreed on issues from slavery to the Bill of Rights, from tax schemes to minimum wages.

The founders didn’t trust human nature. They believed that men, left to themselves, lived lives that were in Thomas Hobbes’ words “nasty, brutish and short.” Having lived through the revolution, a time filled with treachery, opportunism and deep vulgarity, they understood that the American public, like all publics, was ill tempered and loutish, and that politicians were liable to be self-serving and corrupt. The framers anticipated that the republic would pass through times as we are passing through—and times much worse—often.

The Constitution was not meant to protect our better natures. It was meant to protect us from ourselves. It was not meant to change human nature but to accept it, acceding to the fact that as individuals we are mostly pleasant and sometimes wise, but that as crowds we are self-righteous fools. The Constitution was designed to hedge against a rowdy and ill-mannered public and their unscrupulous leaders. It created a government so organized that it was mostly paralyzed, unable or at least unlikely to harm us. It guaranteed freedom of speech and the freedom of the press without great confidence in the press’s wisdom or honesty.

It’s been 230 years since the last insults were uttered at the Constitutional Convention. The document created there has endured every American attempt to undermine it. Tumult like the kind we see now is no more inconsequential than tumult of the past. But it hasn’t broken the republic, and there’s no reason to think it will do so now.

Sincerely,


George Friedman

Out-Of-Touch Media Living in Their DC Bubble - Incapable of Telling The Mike Monsoor Story

Editors Note: Millions of folks read, listen and watch every morning, noon and night to the DC  newspaper TV talking heads, Yet, we only read real life stories on the internet about the likes of Mike Monsoor - striking a nerve that means something to real people.. No wonder that the "media" is viewed by the overwhelming majoriity of readers, listners and viewers as out-of-touch with what is important to ordinary hard working Americans. No wonder that their readership and viewership - accross the board, is declining

Just imagine how great it would be if everyday - in every newspaper, on every TV news show- a real life Mike Monsoor story were to be told. The news media's preoccupation with reporting news that is only important to them, living inside their bubble, is indeed sad.  

Michael Monsoor - Born April 5, 1981; Died September 29, 2006

Mike Monsoor, was Awarded "The Congressional Medal Of Honor" For Giving His Life In Iraq , As He Jumped On, And Covered With His Body, A Live Hand Grenade, 
Saving The Lives Of A Large Group Of Navy Seals That Was Passing By! 

 
During Mike Monsoor's Funeral,  At Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery , In San Diego , California The Six Pallbearers Removed The Rosewood Casket From The Hearse, And Lined Up On Each Side Of Mike Monsoor's Casket, Were His Family Members, Friends, Fellow Sailors, And Well-wishers. 

 
The Column Of People Continued From The Hearse, All The Way To The Grave Site. What The Group Didn't Know At The Time Was,  Every Navy Seal (45 To Be Exact) That Mike Monsoor Saved That Day Was Scattered Through-Out The Column! 

As The Pallbearers Carried The Rosewood Casket  Down The Column Of People To The Grave Side.  The Column Would Collapse. Which Formed A Group Of People That Followed Behind. 

Every Time The Rosewood Casket Passed A Navy Seal, 
He Would Remove His Gold Trident Pin From His Uniform,  And Slap It Down Hard, Causing The Gold Trident Pin To Embed Itself  Into The Top Of The Wooden Casket! Then The Navy Seal Would Step Back From The Column, And Salute! 

 
Now For Those, Who Don't Know What A Trident Pin Is, 
Here Is The Definition! After One Completes The Basic Navy Seals Program Which Lasts For Three Weeks,  And Is Followed By Seal Qualification Training,  Which Is 15 More Weeks Of Training,  Necessary To Continue Improving Basic Skills And To Learn New Tactics And Techniques, Required For An Assignment To A Navy Seal Platoon. After successful completion, Trainees Are Given Their Naval Enlisted Code, And Are Awarded The Navy Seal Trident Pin. With This Gold Pin They Are Now Officially Navy Seals! 

It Was Said, That You Could Hear Each Of The 45 Slaps From Across The Cemetery! By The Time The Rosewood Casket Reached The Grave Site,  It Looked As Though It Had A Gold Inlay From The 45 Trident Pins That Lined The Top!


This Was A Fitting End To An Eternal Send-Off For A Warrior Hero!

Methane Gas Thesis - Potental Global Warming/Climate Change Threat??

Reading pleasure for those who really do want to delve into ALL of the science based theories surrounding the global warmiing/climate change debate.

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/2016RG000534/full


https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2017/06/methane-burps/528654/

Editor post:

What strikes me as amazing – actually really alarming, is the lack of transparency, openness and objectivity on the part of the scientific community who have focused their work on the climate change/global warming issues. The one sided - almost cult level support for the CO2/human caused/fossil fuel warming group is particularly striking.

It seems so obvious to those of us who are accused of being “deniers” that a science based examination of climate change/global warming and, more important, its real potential impact – positive or negative, on the planet and its inhabitants is an enormously complex scientific undertaking. Most of the world’s population is standing on the sidelines –not knowing who to believe. Some of  us are earnestly interested in understanding the real science, the various theories (fossil fuel impact, solar flaring, methane gas, whatever) and the hard data behind the theories –yet, no one scientific body or group of scientists seem to be interested in openly examining the merits of all of them.

If there is one good reason for the U.S.A to pull out of the Paris Accord, it is obvious that global politics and economic wellbeing – not real science has driven this initiative.

More Global Warming News


News Story # 1
The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulate at Bergen Norway.
 
Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone.

Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.

Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.

Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coast cities uninhabitable.

This report was first published - November 2, 1922 , as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post - 94 years ago!!! No doubt - the cause was traced to the Model T Ford's emissions or possibly from horse and cattle farts.

News Story #2

Proponents of the theory humans are primarily responsible for global warming have said for two decades that warmer temperatures would cause significant problems for the people of Africa. Crops would fail, water would dry up, and the lack of stability, coupled with these problems, would cause significant climate-change-related wars.
“In violence-plagued northern Mali, a desiccated landscape of dust and mud huts where the average rainfall is a third less than it was nearly two decades ago, scholars recently blamed a climate change–induced drought for fueling conflict between Tuareg separatist rebels, who need water and grass for their cattle herds, and government-backed forces. In March, the National Academy of Sciences published a peer-reviewed study stating that ‘there is evidence that the 2007–2010 drought contributed to the conflict in Syria. It was the worst drought in the instrumental record, causing widespread crop failure and a mass migration of farming families to urban centers.’ Some studies suggest climate change will produce permanent refugees.”
These kinds of sky-is-falling analyses rely on short-term views of regional and global climate changes, and they often fail to consider the numerous benefits of warming and/or increased carbon-dioxide levels, as evidenced by a new study showing increased CO2 has “driven” greening in Africa.
According to a study by Martin Brandt et al., published in the journal Nature Ecology & Evolution in May, 36 percent of the continent of Africa became greener over the 20-year period from 1992 to 2011, while only 11 percent became “less green.” Interestingly, the researchers found the increased greening was “driven” by higher carbon-dioxide levels and precipitation, and the decreased greening was largely a result of humans cutting down vegetation.
“Here we used a passive microwave Earth observation data set to document two different trends in land area with woody cover for 1992–2011: 36% of the land area (6,870,000 km2) had an increase in woody cover largely in drylands, and 11% had a decrease (2,150,000 km2), mostly in humid zones,” wrote the authors in their study’s abstract. “Increases in woody cover were associated with low population growth, and were driven by increases in CO2 in the humid zones and by increases in precipitation in drylands, whereas decreases in woody cover were associated with high population growth.”
This study, if accurate, serves as further proof that increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is not nearly as dangerous as so many alarmists say. In fact, historically, more-significant problems are linked to climates becoming colder, not warmer. This isn’t surprising, because when temperatures are higher and there is more carbon dioxide present, plants tend to grow better, which means animals and humans have more food to eat.
