Let's twist again like we did last summer.
Twisted data is the best data.

Aw, fark. Is it time for a  "______________, therefore global warming is a fraud and you're all poopyheads" thread again already?

Gotta keep beating those drums or the lie won't become truthy, huh derpers?

Bets are that he's looking at two slightly different data sets and simply doesn't know how to tell the difference.

Not.  This.  shiat.  Again.

if global warming is real then why is it still 98.6 degrees in my pants?

I hate summer now. It's too fricking hot, and I'm up in a northern state. Our winter sucked, but this hot, muggy, Georgia-like weather can just go fark itself.

Nah, gas guzzling V8 is so a year or two ago.  Now the Real Men(tm) mod their diesels to "roll coal" and belch out huge clouds of black smoke.

It's completely obvious that NOAA skews data to further a global communist conspiracy to end capitalism and force us back into a hunter-gatherer lifestyle while living in tiny high-rise apartments. We know this because of NOAA data.

Well if a fine upstanding scientific journal like the Daily Caller doubts climate change then maybe I'm all turned around on the issue.

SphericalTime: Bets are that he's looking at two slightly different data sets and simply doesn't know how to tell the difference.


I'd say that's about right. July of 2012 had thousands super accurate of data points, July 1936 had hundreds of points of "good" data.

But what does it all mean? nothing considering weather isn't climate and 1 year of hotness in a region doesn't mean that the sky is falling.

/doing it right?
 
2014-06-30 09:34:54 PM  
So, a statistical anomaly in fractions of a degree in one year that doesn't in any way disprove the increase in average temperature over the last 100 years suddenly disproves climate change? What is is, Fox News?
 
2014-06-30 09:35:43 PM  
Let me guess, misreading the data and a ridiculous amount of sophistry.

I love global warming threads. I am not a denier but the trolls have to do so little to get such a response. Getting my popcorn!

That 2012 summer was hot and sunny. No matter what I did my grass stayed brown until August. Everybody's grass around here was like that. I thought I was going to have start all over with my lawn the next summer until the heat broke and we got a little cloud cover in August. When that happened the green came back.

Unskew NOAA Now!

2014-06-30 09:41:16 PM  
Interestingly enough, this Heartland Institute affiliated blogger and AGW denier apparently did not attempt to contact NOAA in any way, and inquire about the alleged discrepancy.

Watt's up with that?

2014-06-30 09:41:36 PM  
Wait, is the scandal that they listed 2012 as the "hottest", that they fixed the error, or that they "quietly" made 1936 the "hottest" again? I don't quite follow these scandals.

I mean, you don't change it back if you're trying to 'manipulate' the data as some kind of political machinations, you leave it changed. Of course, the Daily Caller's mobile format sucks dick, so there may be an explanation for all of this in TFA, I just got tired of trying to read that shiatty layout...

Its not August yet.
winter comes in feb
hootedt I've seen it was 119 degree air temp in 2012. My teva sandals melted.

It's getting hot in here.

There you have it.... The fact that the heat EVER broke is a prime example of the reason that global warming is a lie. How can we be still having winters if it's getting "colder"?

Seriouslythat summer sucked here, as did last summer. Luckily, we have yet to see a 100 degree here this summer. YAY!! Midsummer 90s for the 4th is going to be much easier to handle.
 
2014-06-30 09:47:54 PM  
The temperature record is garbage due to undocumented changes that seem to be done on pretty much a daily basis.


http://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2014/06/29/luling-keeps -c hanging/

Then there is the infilling, the gridding, the zombie stations, the stations where estimated data is used even when real data is available....  but let's just look at one plot showing how NOAA adjusts data... past cooler, present warmer.

Gotta muddy the waters so people will still think there's a debate when there isn't. It's the exact same thing they did with acid rain and cigarette smoke.

So they updated the model based on new observations?

OMG CLIMATE CHANGE IS SO FUICKING FALSE NOW!

Or get a private jet. AL Gore's Gulf Stream burns more fuel on a single trip to go lecture us on vehicles than a Hummer does in a year.

The problem is that when NOAA decides to hype the weather, it's fair comment that they don't hype the weather in the other direction. We see this same issue with economic statistics from the BEA. One number is released and then they constantly adjust it for the next five years and sometimes those adjustments lead to data that is the exact opposite of the original data.

At the end of the day people fight fire with fire. If the global warming promoters use the press to hype their cause I can't blame the skeptics for doing the same thing.
 
2014-06-30 10:01:35 PM  
98% of scientists agree, there is man-made global warming when using falsified data.

The NOAA has been adjusting past temperatures down and recent temperatures up.  They have been manipulating the data.  it isn't accurate.  It is falsified.

Wanna talk about unskewing the statisticals?  NOAA is the king of unskewing.
