“NOAA have increased global temperatures in every year from 2001 to 2017 by an average 0.06 C. Even the latest temperature anomaly for 2017 was raised from 0.84 C to 0.90 C. Your article on March 11th did not include the amended anomalies in the link below published in June this year”..June Hover.
NOAA National Centers for Environmental information, Climate at a Glance: Global Time Series, published June 2019. 1880-2017
In each of NOAA’s Annual Climate Reports, the degree of warming above the long term average of 13.9o C, is listed. From 2007, NOAA Temperature Anomalies 2007, the ten warmest years are shown in order in all of the reports but are increased multiple times in subsequent issues finally arriving at the same temperature anomaly shown in the above Global Time Series. 1880-2017
Take for example the NOAA Climate Report for 2010 NOAA Temperature Anomalies 2010 showing it at the top of the ten warmest years table with an anomaly of 0.62 C. In the 2011 report it was increased to 0.64 C. By 2012 it was increased to 0.66 C and by 2015 it was listed at 0.70 C, NOAA Temperature Anomalies 2015 finally in the Global Time Series it was again raised to 0.72 C, equal to a global temperature of 14.62 C when added to the 13.90 C average Global temperature. Without the increased temperatures, excluding the El Nino effect of 2015/16,
there appears to be a very small amount of warming recorded.
The Latest reading of 0.79 C suggests temperatures have declined sharply to where they were in 2013/14. It is interesting that the NOAA Temperature Anomalies 2018 (0.79 C), which was posted before the publication of the Global Time Series 1880-2017 in June 2019, has not been altered.
When compared with NOAA temperature anomalies, the Met Office anomaly data in BLUE shows mostly cooler temperatures from 1880 up to the 70’s/80’s then very much cooler temperatures up to 2017. This has enabled NOAA to demonstrate a higher degree of warming over the period, a total of one degree Celsius compared with UK Met Office at 0.900 C. NOAA and Met Office Compared
The NOAA climate reports go back as far as 1997 when it mistakenly used the wrong base line when it recorded a global temperature of 16.92 C (62.45 F) more than two degrees Celsius warmer than today!
Led by NOAA’s Senior Scientist Tom Karl, the team analyzed temperatures from around the globe during the years 1900 to 1997 and back to 1880 for land areas. For 1997, land and ocean temperatures averaged three quarters of a degree Fahrenheit (F) (0.42 degrees Celsius (C)) above normal. (Normal is defined by the mean temperature, 61.7 degrees F (16.5 degrees C), for the 30 years 1961-90). The 1997 figure exceeds the previous warm year, 1990, by 0.15 degrees F (0.08 degrees C).
Writing in Real Clear Markets, Aaron Brown looked at the official NASA global temperature data and noticed something surprising. From February 2016 to February 2018, “global average temperatures dropped by 0.56 degrees Celsius.” That, he notes, is the biggest two-year drop in the past century.
“The 2016-2018 Big Chill,” he writes, “was composed of two Little Chills, the biggest five month drop ever (February to June 2016) and the fourth biggest (February to June 2017). A similar event from February to June 2018 would bring global average temperatures below the 1980s average.”
Isn’t this just the sort of man-bites-dog story that the mainstream media always says is newsworthy?
In this case, it didn’t warrant any news coverage.
In fact, in the three weeks since Real Clear Markets ran Brown’s story, no other news outlet picked up on it. They did, however, find time to report on such things as tourism’s impact on climate change, how global warming will generate more hurricanes this year, and threaten fish habitats, and make islands uninhabitable. They wrote about a UN official saying that “our window of time for addressing climate change is closing very quickly.”
Reporters even found time to cover a group that says they want to carve President Trump’s face into a glacier to prove climate change “is happening.”
In other words, the mainstream news covered stories that repeated what climate change advocates have been saying ad nauseam for decades.
