2016 NOT ‘Hottest’: Satellite data show 2016 NOT warmer than 1998 – Why Ground Based Temperature Fraud Matters
Barack Obama has many different government agencies in full gear telling lies to try to delegitimize Donald Trump. NASA and NOAA represent one part of Obama’s attempted coup.
Satellites show that temperatures in 2016 were nearly identical to 1998. The claims of record warmth are due to massively tampered NOAA/NASA data.
Fake NASA temperatures are diverging from satellite temperatures at a rate of 1.2C per century.
Arctic sea ice extent is starting the year essentially identical to all recent years, and is growing very rapidly.
Here in the US the number of hot days was well below average, and ranked 81st hottest since 1895. Summers in the US over the past 60 years have been much cooler than they were during the previous 50 years.
NASA and NOAA temperature graphs have been massively altered, and are useful only for propaganda. They have no scientific value.
These government agencies need to be brought under control after January 20, and their personnel in charge held accountable.
‘CRAZINESS’ in climate field leads dissenter Dr. Judith Curry to resign: ‘I have resigned my tenured faculty position at Georgia Tech’
by Judith Curry
Effective January 1, I have resigned my tenured faculty position at Georgia Tech.
Before reflecting on a range of things, let me start by answering a question that may have popped into your head: I have no plans to join the Trump administration (ha ha).
Technically, my resignation is a retirement event, since I am on the Georgia State Teachers Retirement System, and I need to retire from Georgia Tech to get my pension (although I am a few years shy of 65). I have requested Emeritus status.
So, I have retired from Georgia Tech, and I have no intention of seeking another academic or administrative position in a university or government agency. However, I most certainly am not retiring from professional life.
Why did I resign my tenured faculty position?
I’m ‘cashing out’ with 186 published journal articles and two books. The superficial reason is that I want to do other things, and no longer need my university salary. This opens up an opportunity for Georgia Tech to make a new hire (see advert).
The deeper reasons have to do with my growing disenchantment with universities, the academic field of climate science and scientists.
A deciding factor was that I no longer know what to say to students and postdocs regarding how to navigate the CRAZINESS in the field of climate science. Research and other professional activities are professionally rewarded only if they are channeled in certain directions approved by a politicized academic establishment — funding, ease of getting your papers published, getting hired in prestigious positions, appointments to prestigious committees and boards, professional recognition, etc.
How young scientists are to navigate all this is beyond me, and it often becomes a battle of scientific integrity versus career suicide (I have worked through these issues with a number of skeptical young scientists).
When I first started down this new path in 2010, I published papers that could be categorized as applied philosophy of science (e.g. uncertainty monster, etc). This seemed to be a path towards maintaining academic ‘legitimacy’ in light of my new interests, but frankly I got bored with playing the game. Why go to the extra effort to publish papers, wrestling with reviewers who (usually) know less than you do about your topic (not to mention their biases), having to pay to get an article published some months in the …
In 1940, Arctic sea ice was two meters thick.
Arctic sea ice is now two meters thick.
All of the official fake news agencies and fake government agencies have been claiming that Arctic sea ice is getting thinner.
A Bush Administration official said last week that all the thick multi-year ice is gone.
As is almost always the case with government officials and journalists, they were lying. More than half of the Arctic is covered with multi-year ice.
