Climate Change: No Real Warming for Last 58 Years? Why is NOAA Hiding Data?

Data manipulation to score political points?

Climate change is a fun game where some parties declare as loudly as possible that something simply has to be done, otherwise, we’re all going to DIE! This is despite the fact that not a single climate change model — the models where they show just what is going to happen in the future if we don’t change our wicked ways — has panned out remotely like they said it would.

Recently, NOAA released weather data regarding the hottest summer on record.  Turns out, they may have only released part of the story.


In their “hottest year ever” press briefing, NOAA included this graph, which stated that they have a 58 year long radiosonde temperature record. But they only showed the last 37 years in the graph.

Here is why they are hiding the rest of the data. The earlier data showed as much pre-1979 cooling as the post-1979 warming.




I combined the two graphs at the same scale below, and put a horizontal red reference line in, which shows that the earth’s atmosphere has not warmed at all since the late 1950’s


The omission of this data from the NOAA report, is just their latest attempt to defraud the public. NOAA’s best data shows no warming for 60 years. But it gets worse. The graph in the NOAA report shows about 0.5C warming from 1979 to 2010, but their original published data shows little warming during that period.

If this is accurate, then it’s a case of data manipulation in order to score political points.

Folks, we get it.  We get that the planet is important.  However, since the climate models are all coming up false, despite the dire warnings from some segments of American politics, we can’t help but believe that we simply don’t understand climate nearly as much as we like to believe.

Meanwhile, those same segments of the population are clamoring for massive hits to an economy that still hasn’t recovered from the 2008 financial crisis.

Why should we intentionally wreck our economy when the supposed experts have not been able to accurately predict climate changes with a single one of their models?

Let’s face it, science is all about predicting.

Most who have done heavy cleaning knows you don’t mix bleach and ammonia, especially in water.  They know if they do, they’ll release chlorine gas.  This is predictive.  We know exactly what will happen if you do that.  It happens every time.

Other sciences aren’t quite as predictive.  For example, psychology will argue that one who is abused as a child is likely to abuse as an adult.  It’s predictive, but they also know other variables may skew their predictions for various reasons.

Fair enough.

It’s only climate science that seems to say, “This IS going to happen,” then pretends the fact that it never happens is irrelevant.  Psychologist understand that their predictions can be impacted by other variables, yet climate scientists?  We don’t hear about what they don’t know, or what they don’t understand.  All we hear is either absolute adherence to the idea that climate change will wipe out humanity.  Either that or those who disagree being shunned.

It’s time Americans get on the same page with this.  Climate scientists don’t know as much as they seem to believe they do.  Otherwise, at least one of their models would be accurate.

    The two graphs have a different baseline value for “zero.” Aligning the cooler data set to the warmer data set was deliberately dishonest on Goddard/Heller’s part.
