    Watts Up With That? ^ | April 22 , 2010 | Anthony Watts
    UPDATE 4/23 4PM: I’ve been in contact with the Eureka Weather Station manager, and despite the incredible nature of the temperature jumps that are outside of normal experiences, such as July 14 2009,  they do appear to be real. The METAR coding errors are another issue. I have many pictures now, plus a plan map, and a better meteorological insight than what can be gained from the meager online metadata. I’ll have an updated post later tonight or tomorrow – Anthony Ecotretas find more cases of missing “M”s and mangled data in METAR reports making it into climatic temperature data. ...

    [Snip]...Why all these concerted efforts? Very simple, the very existence of the medieval warming period (not to speak of the Roman Warming Period), made mockery of their Global Warming Hysteria. How can you blame the humans for this when the temperature was much higher and have risen faster during this medieval period. So it officially “disappeared”.

    NOAA News ^ | April 15, 2010 | NOAA
    The world’s combined global land and ocean surface temperature made last month the warmest March on record, according to NOAA. Taken separately, average ocean temperatures were the warmest for any March and the global land surface was the fourth warmest for any March on record. Additionally, the planet has seen the fourth warmest January – March period on record. The monthly National Climatic Data Center analysis, which is based on records going back to 1880, is part of the suite of climate services NOAA provides government, business and community leaders so they can make informed decisions.

  • SURFACE TEMPERATURE RECORDS: POLICY-DRIVEN DECEPTION?

    Science and Public Policy Institute ^ | April 13, 2010 | Joseph D’Aleo and Anthony Watts
    SUMMARY FOR POLICY MAKERS (by SPPI) 1. Instrumental temperature data for the pre-satellite era (1850-1980) have been so widely, systematically, and uni-directionally tampered with that it cannot be credibly asserted there has been any significant “global warming” in the 20th century. 2. All terrestrial surface-temperature databases exhibit signs of urban heat pollution and post measurement adjustments that render them unreliable for determining accurate long-term temperature trends. 3. All of the problems have skewed the data so as greatly to overstate observed warming both regionally and globally. 4. Global terrestrial temperature data are compromised because more than three-quarters of the 6,000...
  • UN's Climate Bible Gets 21 "F"s on Report Card (IPCC Lies )

    TORONTO -- 21 of 44 chapters in the United Nations' Nobel-winning climate bible earned an F on a report card released today. Forty citizen auditors from 12 countries examined 18,500 sources cited in the report – finding 5,600 to be not peer-reviewed.  Contrary to statements by the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the celebrated 2007 report does not rely solely on research published in reputable scientific journals. It also cites press releases, newspaper and magazine clippings, student theses, newsletters, discussion papers, and literature published by green advocacy groups. Such material is often called "grey literature." "We've been...

    THE SMOKING GUN ^ | July 17, 2007 | By Smoking Gun
    JULY 17--If you're looking to book Al Gore for a 75-minute "Environmental Multimedia Lecture," the former vice president will cost you $100,000, plus travel, hotel, security, and per diem expenses. Gore's standard speaker's contract, a copy of which you'll find below, also stipulates that the Democrat's ground transportation be "a sedan, NOT an SUV." Additionally, Gore requests that speech sponsors make every effort to use a hybrid vehicle for his transport. The Gore contract, which is more restrained than the one used by Rudolph Giuliani, stipulates that no press be permitted at the event and that the Democrat receive approval...
  • Co2 is the magic gas that makes plant grow

    A little under half (typically about 45%) of the dry weight of any plant is carbon, and it almost all that “C” came from CO2 in the atmosphere. No wonder plants love more CO2.Trees and bushes can grow out of cracks in rocks because they suck the carbon right out of the air. Likewise hydroponics is only possible because the building blocks come from liquid and aerial fertilizer.CO2 is about the only “pollution” you can pump around plants and watch them grow faster, stronger, taller and indeed more resistant to most of the stresses that normally bother a plant.Watch these...

    Bonn, Germany– The UN’s international climate conference here in Bonn has decided that the wealthier nations among the 192 States Parties to the UN Convention on Climate Change should make plenty of taxpayers’ money available to hold two additional weeks of pre-negotiation negotiations between now and December, when the legally-binding World Government Climate Treaty is to be signed in Cancun, Mexico. Dr. Yvo de Boer, who will shortly retire as secretary to the Conference of the States Parties to the Convention, told observers here in Bonn yesterday that the extra time was essential so that details which could otherwise wreck...

    With the revelation about the cherrypicked Russian stations (plus six other freshly, independently discovered problems), the real story of how we got here just took a shape.The Climategate files were made public just a month ago, and the email messages that were revealed have already had real impact. The emails show us scientists being petty and political, even corrupt. Suppressing dissenting science and perhaps even violating the law to prevent data from being shared with the rest of the world. They show us people with failings, egos against egos. But the emails themselves aren’t enough to call the overall...

    Six months after introducing a sweeping climate change bill that flopped in the Senate, Democrat John Kerry is preparing to offer a compromise measure that seeks to reel in reluctant senators. Kerry, collaborating with Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and independent Senator Joseph Lieberman, might introduce a new bill promoting clean energy early next week, just days before the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, environmental sources said. Despite Kerry's consistently upbeat assessment of legislative prospects this year, the new bill also faces plenty of hurdles. On Friday, a new problem potentially arose when U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens announced...

    There are not many empty seats in the dismal, echoing conference chamber in the ghastly concrete box that is the Hotel Maritim here in Bonn, where the UN’s latest attempt to maneuver the 194 States Parties to the Framework Convention on Climate Change gets underway today. The “international community”, as it is now called, is here in full force, in the shape of expensively-suited, shiny-shod bureaucrats with an urbane manner and absolutely no knowledge of climate science whatsoever. However, one empty chair is a pointer of things to come. The Holy See – a tiny nation in its own...

    Europe's satellite mission to measure the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets, the Earth observation satellite CryoSat-2, was launched at 15:57 CET on a Russian Dnepr launcher from Baikonur in Kazakhstan. The satellite is now in orbit 717 kilometres above Earth. The mission will survey the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets and sea ice until 2013. Researchers expect to gain a new understanding of the relationships between global warming, the shrinking of the polar ice sheets and changes oceanic and atmospheric circulation from the mission. DLR is contributing towards the funding of the mission on behalf of the German Federal Government....

    Godfather of the global warming hoax, James Hansen has received a $100,000 "environmental prize for decades of work trying to alert politicians to what he called an unsolved emergency of global warming." Climate scientist James Hansen wins Sophie Prize : The "Sophie Prize" is awarded for disrupting free-market capitalism and pushing the world toward centralized control. In its mission statement, the organization behind the prize states: Today’s economic system is at odds with the limits set by nature.

    Re-reading Climategate and AR4 Review Comments, I noticed an interesting discussion about handling the Law Dome O18 record – a series used in Mann and Jones (2003) and Jones and Mann (2004) with a very elevated MWP.The Law Dome O18 series was illustrated in Jones and Mann 2004 as follows (although the digital data for most series in this article was commendably archived, the digital version of the Law Dome O18 series wasn’t. After a couple of years of effort, I obtained it from Tas van Ommen.) Law Dome O18 was one of three series used in the Mann and...

    Climategate was a lot of fuss about nothing, claims Britain’s parliamentary inquiry into the scandal: The focus on Professor Jones and CRU has been largely misplaced. On the accusations relating to Professor Jones’s refusal to share raw data and computer codes, the Committee considers that his actions were in line with common practice in the climate science community but that those practices need to change… Insofar as the Committee was able to consider accusations of dishonesty against CRU, the Committee considers that there is no case to answer.

    This is the beginning of many full-length articles that will come as the House of Mann-Made Global Warming collapses. It’s long, but when it’s from a professional feature writer drawing a story of a professional scam-buster who works at the highest levels, it’s a great read. Enjoy It’s not a grand scientific expose, but it does turn ClimateGate into a human interest story with momentum, and, as such, it may reach a wider audience than any scientific expose.

    This is one story which will never be written by the MSM, and one thing Gore and the current envirowackos who run the gov't in DC do NOT want you to know about. As most people know, the Arctic sea ice grows and wanes with the seasons, and in recent summers, has fallen far below its 'historical' (1979-2000) averages. This has prompted the likes of Al Gore to claim the North Pole would be ice free in the summer within a decade or so. A funny thing is happening on the way to the ice free Arctic, and that is...

    NASA was able to put a man on the moon, but the space agency can't tell you what the temperature was when it did. By its own admission, NASA's temperature records are in even worse shape than the besmirched Climate-gate data. E-mail messages obtained by a Freedom of Information Act request reveal that NASA concluded that its own climate findings were inferior to those maintained by both the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU) -- the scandalized source of the leaked Climate-gate e-mails -- and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Climatic Data Center. The e-mails from...
