The climate change myth is about as believable as President Trump colluding with the Russians to win an election, and just like the Great Russian Ruse, the climate change narrative has been taking repeated blows yet the left continues to cling to it like a child refusing to give up their last piece of candy.
Over the years, numerous scientists have come forward with evidence that climate change is the largest hoax ever perpetrated on mankind (next to Obama’s presidency), and a new study further destroys the credibility of climate alarmists warning of certain disaster if we don’t stop burning fossil fuels. In fact, the study looked at temperature data for the last century and found that “nearly all” of the data has been fudged to show warming trends that aren’t even happening.
The study was conducted by two scientists and a veteran statistician and reviewed the global average temperature datasets (GAST) used by alarmists to warn recent years have been the hottest on record. However, once the raw data was examined, it showed little to no actual warming occurring for over 120 years.
From Breitbart News:
What they found is that these readings are “totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data.”
That is, the adjusted data used by alarmist organizations like NASA, NOAA, and the UK Met Office differs so markedly from the original raw data that it cannot be trusted.
This chart gives you a good idea of the direction of the adjustments.
The blue bars show where the raw temperature data has been adjusted downwards to make it cooler; the red bars show where the raw temperature data has been adjusted upwards to make it warmer.
Note how most of the downward adjustments take place in the early twentieth century and most of the upward take place in the late twentieth century.
According to meteorologist Joe D’Aleo, who co-authored the study with statistician James Wallace and Cato Institute climate scientist Craig Idso, this has the effect of exaggerating the warming trend:
“Nearly all of the warming they are now showing are in the adjustments.”
“Each dataset pushed down the 1940s warming and pushed up the current warming.”
“You would think that when you make adjustments you’d sometimes get warming and sometimes get cooling. That’s almost never happened.”
Interesting, to say the least. Their findings are quite troubling considering how far invested America and the rest of the world is in combatting the climate boogie man, all of which has been done based upon the flawed findings of government-funded scientists apparently paid to reach a certain conclusion rather than find the objective truth.
As for whether or not the Earth is actually seeing record warming? The study concluded:
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.
