On March 16, 2016, The National Centers for Environmental Information, (NOAA) published a chart showing weather data that had been collected during the last 37 years in order to demonstrate the ‘Land and ocean temperature departure from average’.
In layman’s terms, the NOAA is attempting to show that a ‘Record Warmth’ across the globe (aided by a strong El Niño) during December-February was more than 2° above the 20th Century average.
They claim that this was:
‘The highest temperature for December-February in the 1880-2016 record, surpassing the previous record set in 2015/16 by 0.52°F. This also marks the highest 2-month departure from any 3-month period in record, surpassing the previous record set last month, November 2015 – January 2016, by 0.16°F.
The February average temperature for the globe was 2.18°F above the 20th century average. This was not only the highest for the month of February in the 1880-2016 record (surpassing the previous record set in 2015 by 0.52°F). February 2016 also marks the 10th consecutive month a monthly global global record has been broken.’
In other words – Global Warming….
But are the above figures strictly accurate?
Even though the NOAA have collected Radiosonde Temperature Data over the last 58 years, why would they publish a graph which only shows the last 37?
What about the previous 21 years?
Or the 40 before that?
Could it be because temperatures have been naturally dropping year-on-year since the late 1940’s right up to the late 1970’s?
Try and source any newspaper from that period and you will see for yourself that the mass media were talking about a ‘coming ice age’, and discussing that ice ages have cyclically occurred roughly every 10,000 years, with a new one due any time post 2012.
During the late 1970’s, the natural cycles of the planet began turning warmer and steadily rose until the late 1990’s, so have the world’s economists and more importantly, those with political interests attempted to use manipulated data to their own advantage?
‘Central to these natural cycles is the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO). Every 25 to 30 years the oceans undergo a natural cycle where the colder water below churns to replace the warmer water at the surface, and that affects global temperatures by the fractions of a degree we have seen. The PDO was cold from the late 1940’s to the late 1970’s, and it was warm from the late 1970’s to the late 1990’s, similar to the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO)‘.
IN 2000, the UN’s IPCC predicted that global temperatures would rise by 1°C by 2010. Was that based on climate science, or political science to scare the public into accepting costly anti-industrial regulations and TAXES?’ – SOURCE
