Warmists: Say, That Warming Hiatus Actually Never Happened

Interestingly, many, many lead climate scientists have stated that the Great Pause was, in fact, happening. But, it proves inconvenient for the Cult of Climastrology. Hence, they have come up with well over 70 excuses for it. Now we get this

NOAA challenged the global warming ‘pause.’ Now new research says the agency was right

It may have been the most controversial climate change study in years.

In the summer of 2015, a team of federal scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration published a blockbuster paper in Science that appeared to wipe away one of global warming doubters’ favorite arguments. The skeptics had for years suggested that following the then-record warm year of 1998 and throughout the beginning of the 21st century, global warming had slowed down or “paused.” But the 2015 paper, led by NOAA’s Thomas Karl, employed an update to the agency’s influential temperature dataset, and in particular to its record of the planet’s ocean temperatures, to suggest that really, the recent period was perfectly consistent with the much longer warming trend. (snip)

That controversy is likely to be stirred anew in the wake of a new study, published Wednesday in Science Advances, that finds the NOAA scientists did the right thing in adjusting their dataset. In particular, the new research suggests that the NOAA scientists correctly adjusted their record of ocean temperatures in light of known biases in some observing systems — and indeed, that keepers of other top global temperature datasets should do likewise.

Essentially, what they did was create data out of nowhere adjust the ocean data upwards quite a bit to conform to their preconceived beliefs while leaving the land data alone. In essence, it was the “oceans ate my warming” argument on steroids.

This highly technical switch, in turn, had the effect of increasing the overall warming of the oceans in the new dataset — and helping to wipe out claims that there’d been any recent slowdown in the rate of climate change.

I remember reading about this in grade school science. If the data doesn’t conform to the hypothesis, then the data is wrong, and must be changed.

    The data were not changed. The Deniers were dishonest (or ignorant) by choosing 1998 as the start of their “pause”. But never fear – you can start a new pause with 2016’s record high.

    The data were (sic) not changed.

    Thanks, little guy, you is smart and you continue to self-humiliate with your stupidity.

    Yep when you cant make it work……..change the numbers……..And then pretend that that was absolutely the right thing to do because well those old numbers werent right but we can go back 15 years ago and re take the temperatures that were read with the existing technology at the time……..

    NOAA is the classic government agency on the dole for funding and are expected to find global warming…..I surmise when their funding dries up under Trump unless they find that the planet is not in danger……..suddenly all those scientists will be poo poohing the old data sets that were reworked to show warming.

    The willfully ignorant science Deniers probably just aren’t smart enough to understand climate science. After all, most conservatives have never taken a single university level science class and don’t understand how complex scientific instruments such as thermometers work LOL. Feeling left behind the modern world, they lash out.

    Science Denialism nothing more, nothing less, than a part of the conservative political movement. Welcome to the new dark ages.

  5. Jeffery says:

    Only two climate scientists have demonstrably pushed false/flawed climate data – Drs. Roy Spencer and John Christy, darlings of the Denier right, with their work of the UAH satellite dataset. Fortunately, other scientists corrected their sloppy work, and to their credit, Spencer and Christy admitted to their significant errors.

    Once again, little guy, you prove that you’re full of shit and haven’t a clue as to what you’re yapping about.

  7. Jeffery says:

    Curiouser and curiouser! Now you Deniosaurs are back to Denying that it’s even warming!

    Heil Trump! His influence on you is showing already!
