AGW Today: Everything’s Freezing, But, Where’s The Data?

So, what do we have going on with “climate change?”

Schools are canceled all over. LED stop lights stop functioning in the cold. Snow. Ice. Bundling up. Britain’s power grid is overstressed from the record setting cold, and they are having “nightmare” road conditions. In the face of all that, the climate alarmists would fake data, would they? Musings From The Chiefio brings us the story, which includes a weather data graphic from NASA, which shows a massive hot spot over Bolivia

Notice that nice rosy red over the top of Bolivia? Bolivia is that country near, but not on, the coast just about half way up the Pacific Ocean side. It is almost entirely high cold Andes Mountains. It’s the patch of whitish mountains in this picture:

One Small Problem. There has not been any thermometer data in GHCN since 1990.

None. Nada. Zilch. Nothing. Empty Set.

So just how can it be so Hot Hot Hot! in Bolivia if there is NO data?

Easy. GIStemp “makes it up” from “nearby” thermometers up to 1200 km away. So what is within 1200 km of Bolivia? The beaches of Peru and the Amazon Jungle.

Woops! The author, E.M. Smith, also catches some fake data in the Canada map. Also, alarmist climatologists wouldn’t drop 806 cold weather stations in a year would they? Would they?

  1. Oh, I’m sure that is just some study from Big Oil or the anti-environmental lobby or some. Everyone knows the science is settled! 😀

    Teach, I think the problem with the LED stoplights isn’t that they stop working, but that, unlike the good ol’ incandescent stoplights, the snow and ice that usually build up would normally be melted way by the waste heat of the lights isn’t there with LEDs, causing them to be obscured during snow/ice storms.
