New NOAA Data Show No Slowdown In Global Warming

The funny thing about almost any scientific discovery is that it eventually turns out to be wrong. The truth of the matter is that there is a deeper explanation for everything that we have yet to figure out, and by the same token, many theorems of even the greatest scientists are eventually proven wrong. The problem is that science is only as good as the data used to draw the scientific conclusions. If the data are inaccurate, the conclusions are inevitably the same.

In a classic example of this, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency announced earlier this week that the much-ballyhooed “hiatus” in global warming over the last 15 years was based on inaccurate data. In a new study using corrected data and including the last two very warm years, NOAA determined that the rate of global warming was virtually unchanged over the last 15 years.

Statement from NOAA unit director

“The notion that there was a slowdown in global warming, or a hiatus, was based on the best information we had available at the time,” explained Thomas R. Karl, director of the National Centers for Environmental Information, a NOAA division based in Asheville, N.C. “Science is always working to improve.”

This Long/ Short Equity Firm Sees A Time-Arbitrage Opportunity In This Pest Control Merger

PestYost Partners was up 0.8% for the first quarter, while the Yost Focused Long Funds lost 5% net. The firm's benchmark, the MSCI World Index, declined by 5.2%. The funds' returns outperformed their benchmark due to their tilt toward value, high exposures to energy and financials and a bias toward quality. In his first-quarter letter Read More

Global warming deniers up in arms

Not surprisingly, NOAA’s revisions to its analysis has led to accusations from some climate-change deniers that the agency was trying to rewrite the truth and make inconvenient data disappear. Climate scientists not associated with the NOAA research said the deniers were dead wrong, noting it was critical that scientific agencies like NOAA to look for and fix problems in their data records.

That said, senior climate scientists at other agencies were not immediately embracing all of NOAA’s new conclusions.

“What you have is a reasonable effort to deal with known biases, and obviously there is some uncertainty in how you do that,” noted Gavin A. Schmidt, who heads a New York-based NASA climate research team.

Most scientists never really accepted the idea put forward by climate contrarians that the “so-called :global warming hiatus” was a major blow to the whole global warming thesis. They generally noted they believe the data, and the situation should be studied further..

One explanation for the global warming slowdown is that natural fluctuations in the Pacific Ocean may have temporarily sucked heat out of the atmosphere, briefly slowing down the long-term increase of surface temperatures.

  1. If you do not like the numbers change them.. If you can not talk the issues insult people who do. Make up hundreds of news stories about global warming. One I red said global warming is going to cut the number of red heads. ANother will cause a massive increase in kidney stones.. those of the two that comes to mind. Do not talk about the prediction of massive increase storms. Well when they does not happen they say see proof of global warming. When a group of scientists go to the south pole to show how the ice was gone. Well guess what they get stuck in records ice. DO I need to go on. almost none of what the global warming people have said was going to happen back in the 80’s that were going to happen in 20 or 30 years.. None has happen.. Oh yea, the ocean is rising, the ocean is rising.. Well in many cases, the land is sinking.

  2. What a surprise ! A Tax dependent organization revises data that showed there was no need for… New Carbon Taxes !

    The data did not match the modeled temp rise . Voila’ …CHANGE the DATA ! Make the ” Hope and CHANGE” Boss happy !

    The Hiatus.. like the Medieval Warming Period.. had to “Go Away”. It HAS to be Warming ! And at an “Alarming Rate !

    No one is Fooled… except the…willing.

  3. This is such a bunch of crap. There is literally no facts to support anything these so called scientists say. They base their facts on Climate models….They don’t even know what all the variables are but they claim them as facts. Here’s a fact. We as humans are unable to accurately predict the weather 5 days in advance…Why would people really think we can predict the climate 50 years from now if we can’t even get a 5 day forecast correct? It’s ignorant. This is just propaganda. Here’s another fact. The US and China are set to make trillions of dollars from the new “green” energy sector created from these lies. Our gov’t is using fear in an effort to push this climate change agenda and it’s working. The problem is this. These gov’t and scientists can’t ever go back and say this isn’t true at this point because these green energies are literally the future whether climate change is real or not. It’s all about money. If Climate change were really as dire as they say, all of these gov’t would be planting millions of trees because that is ultimately the solution to the problem…That’s right..Trees…They consume carbon dioxide and release oxygen…So, as you can see, the solution to this so called problem is actually really simple but our gov’t doesn’t want a real solution because there isn’t a real problem…Wake up people, use some common sense, stop believing everything you’re told.

  4. NOAA Fiddles With Climate Data To Erase The 15-Year Global Warming ‘Hiatus’

    New climate data by NOAA scientists doubles the warming trend since the late 1990s by adjusting pre-hiatus temperatures downward and inflating temperatures in more recent years.

    To increase the rate in warming, NOAA scientists put more weight on certain ocean buoy arrays, adjusted ship-based temperature readings upward, and slightly raised land-based temperatures as well.

  6. It’s all about funding isn’t it?
    By their own admission the government data is flawed, so why should we trust this latest revelation from NOAA?

  7. Of course there was never a “pause” in global warming. Why, that’d be like saying there is no Sasquatch, Ancient Aliens or the Loch Ness Monster. Some people just don’t understand science.

  8. It’s not “New Data.” It’s the old data that has been “adjusted” and twisted to fit the pre-ordained narrative. Stop passing on mis-information because it doesn’t help the process, and it just makes the AGW crowd look more disreputable.

  10. Failed to mention the Met Office criticism of NOAA’s data re-interpretation. They specifically point out the wide error margins of the new study. It is another cherry picked study with statistical manipulation making the pause look like it is not happening. Much like Mann’s debunked Hockey stick the Australian Meteorology agency is under investigation for their manipulated warming data.
