A recurring theme since Climategate in 2009, is the effort by the warmists to adjust, fudge, fabricate data to give their political masters what they want. Gavin Schmidt is the master of data fixing, however Steven Goddard is onto him. There’s been no warming now in over 18 years:
How Gavin Schmidt Cheated To Create The Required Talking Point
Gavin quietly says that there is a 62% chance that 2014 was not the warmest year on record, but he had to give his boss a talking point for the State of the Union address this week.
So Gavin simply fabricated warm temperatures across huge areas like Greenland, where he had no actual thermometer data in December.
Gavin showed much of western Greenland 1-2C above normal, when it was actually 2C below normal. It doesn’t take a lot of that sort of cheating to get temperatures up 0.02 globally.
There is only one chance in 27 million that there is a smidgen of truth to the hottest year ever claim. NASA are now admitting, maybe we got it wrong, were only 38% sure.More:
Tim Ball comments on the fraud
Schmidt knows, after all his years with the CRU gang and participation in creation and naming of the RealClimate web site, that it is all about the headline. He has achieved that, and all the pointing out of errors and deceptions will not alter the impression left with the media and the public. As it is said, the lie is twice round the world before the truth even has its boots on.
The best antidote is the continuance of cold weather, especially in the eastern U.S. and Western Europe. The 2014 claim was pushed out of people’s minds in the UK by the cold and snow of this week.
This was the same trend that started the public questioning the global warming fiasco. All the skeptics efforts had little effect, partly because the media did not report properly. It was a couple of cold winters that started the doubts and as usual, cartoonists captured this before most. Here is an early example of the growing cynicism.
As the events contradicted their hypothesis, instead of revisiting the science, as normal science requires, they simply moved the goalposts. The CRU gang’s reaction was recorded in the leaked emails, A 2004 CRU email from the Minns/Tyndall Centre on the UEA campus said:
“In my experience, global warming freezing is already a bit of a public relations problem with the media.”
To which Swedish Chief Climate negotiator Bo Kjellen replied,
“I agree with Nick that climate change might be a better labelling than global warming.”
Schmidt has taken on the James Hansen mantle with vigour and purpose and the climate deception continues.
