Temperature Adjustments Transform Arctic Climate History

Technical Rating: star
The Arctic warmed up rapidly during the 1930’s and 40’s, before temperatures plunged in the 1960’s and 70’s. The GISS Arctic temperature record has been "adjusted" by cooling past readings so that the current adjusted records are about a degree Celsius warmer than the 1940s. Nearly every current station from Greenland, in the west, to the heart of Siberia (87E), in the east, has been altered by cooling past temperatures. The effect has been to remove a large part of the 1940’s spike, and as consequence removed much of the drop in temperatures during the subsequent cold decades. The evidence suggests that the official temperature trends for the Arctic, as published by GISS and others, are hopelessly flawed.

The Global Warming Standstill

Technical Rating: star
A report by Dr David Whitehouse and published by the Global Warming Policy Foundation concludes that there has been no statistically significant increase in annual global temperatures since 1997. The report discusses the reporting of the standstill from 2006 to date. It shows the standstill can not be explained as a random aberration. The CO2 concentration has increased from 365 to 395 during the period.

NOAA Temperature Fraud Expands

Technical Rating: star
As of 1999, NASA showed that 1934 was more than one degree (Fahrenheit) warmer than 1998, and that 1921, 1931 and 1953 were all warmer than 1998. They now show that 1934 is about 0.1 C or 0.2 F cooler than 1998. The total recent downwards adjustment of 1934 is almost 1.3 degrees Fahrenheit relative to 1998. NOAA is claiming that the Continental US 2012 temperature was a record, but prior to recent adjustments, 1934 was hotter than 2012.

How NIWA Added Lots of Warming in New Zealand - and Got Away With It

Technical Rating: star
A judge has disregarded as inadmissible expert evidence from a statistician who showed that the adjustment method NIWA claimed they used only give a 0.3C/Century rise in temperature and ruled that NIWA can adjust the temperature record as they see fit without having to demonstrate the use of a method based on any accepted science.

Hotter in Hansen's World due to Missing "Oceans" of Data

Technical Rating: star
Jim Hansen of NASA's GISS replaces satellite-based sea surface temperature data with land measured data over the Arctic and Southern Oceans where there is seasonal sea ice. The land temperatures are extrapolated over the oceans up to 1200 km from the surface weather stations in the influential GISS temperature index. The GISS ocean-only warming trend in the Arctic is 35 times greater than the satellite measured ocean warming trend.
