Barry and Jennifer have a problem with the way climate data is being altered to suit the Global Warming/Climate Change theory: “No one said anything about the unprecedented rise in annual Global temperature of o.21 C, published in November 2015 just before the Paris Conference in December 2015, a decade’s worth of warming between 2014-2015! We would like your readers to go the original NOAA Annual Reports and compare their temperatures anomalies. The extent to which they have been changing the data is not just limited to fudging temperatures, e.g. measuring sea surface temperatures with thermometers in a ship’s intake, despite the warming bias, were among the many issues exposed”. 

Anomalies on left were from original climate reports which were raised by an average of 0.06 C.    Click to Enlarge. 

The above anomalies were increased again, in the 2020 NOAA Climate at a Glance document, to an average of 0.0750 C.

In the year 2014 prior to the Paris Agreement in 2015, was listed as the warmest across global land and ocean surfaces since records began in 1880. The temperature was listed at 69 C but later changed to 73 C then 74 C prior to Paris in 2015″.

An annual average global temperature of 16.91 C, (62.45 F) was posted for 1997 which was more than two degrees Celsius warmer than today, surpassing the 1995 record by 15 degrees Fahrenheit, which means all the 1990 s data before it was null and void.

The amount of global warming from 1880 to 1914 was only 0.760 C and would have been disastrous for the Paris conference had they not provided an early release of a higher temperature reading for 2015.  About half the earth’s warming has occurred before 1945 which was due mainly to natural variability up until 2014. The link below lists temperature anomalies from 1880-2019 including further increases to the years 2016, 2017 and 2108.     NOAA Increased Anomalies 2      

The above link shows the temperature anomaly record dating back back to 1880, including those that were increased from NOAA’s original annual climate reports after 2000, based on their departure from the average 20th century temperature of 13.900 C. The anomaly recorded in 1880, -0.12 C, equates to a temperature of 13.88 C for that year.

Among the highest increases from NOAA’s original climate reports were 11 C in 2010, 10 C in 2006 and 9 C in 2009. Even the latest NOAA annual climate reports have been altered. Later reports in 2017 and 2018, 84 C and 79 C respectively, showed what looked like a cooling trend after 2016 but they too were increased to 91 C and 83 C.

Had they not altered the anomaly for 2018 from 0.79 C the actual temperature would have been only 16.69 C and when compared to 1880 at 13.88 C it would have meant only 0.81 C  of warming in 137 years…Is this why we are spending trillions trying to limit CO2 emissions? And what percentage of carbon dioxide emissions would have been due to natural variability?

Below is an excerpt from the NOAA 2017 Annual global report:

“The 2017 average global temperature across land and ocean surface areas was 0.84°C (1.51°F) above the 20th century average of 13.9°C (57.0°F), behind the record year 2016 (+0.94°C / +1.69°F) and 2015 (+0.90°C / +1.62°F; second warmest year on record) both influenced by a strong El Niño episode. The year 2017 is also the warmest year without an El Niño present in the tropical Pacific Ocean”.

NOTE that the above says that 2015 was 0.90 C and 2016 was o.94 C but both were later changed to 1.00 C. and 0.93 C respectively.

    I think they said the earth has warmed by 0.94 C since the pre-industrial period which isn’t much when you consider a fair chunk of that is from natural causes like volcanoes that spew out carbon dioxide. There are more trees growing than there have been for many years which could be good thing for the planet.

  2. Sel Murray says:

    At least part of the 0.21 C increase could be attributed to the el nino effect. The previous el nino, that had occurred in 1998, had brought about an increase of 0.13 Celsius which might help explain it.
    However there was sharp drop in temperature from 1 C in 21016 to 0.79 C in 2018 which had to be a mistake. This is what happens with modeling as has been revealed with the predicted death toll due to covid-19 virus being so far out that it had caused the authorities to impose such harsh restrictions.

    The sea level in Fort Denison in Sydney Harbour shows the same sea level as that of 1914 and there were only small variations over the period. If global warming is causing sea levels to rise why is there is so much real estate development in coastal areas, particularly the creation of housing along canals etc.. not to mention the billions invested in low lying islands such as the Maldives. Up until 2014 the rise in Global temperature was only 0.740 C and had it not been for the early release of the 2015 NOAA temperature data in October, which is usually announced about February the following year, that showed a spectacular increase in global temperature of 0.21 C, the Paris conference scheduled for December that same year would have been a waste of time.

  4. Bonza Wright says:

    The 2018 average temperature over land and sea was 0.79 C, which was later changed to 0.83 C.
    Either way it meant we had a warming of either 0.80 C or 0.84 C since 1880!
    Even the latest data for 2019 at 0.95 C is still only 95 C more than the global temperature in 1880 which was 13.89 C, if that is accurate. According to our ABC the temperature measuring procedures in those days were regarded as unreliable according scientists they spoke to.

  5. Shaun says:

    NOAA, who are regarded as the go to authority for climate and temperature data in the US, had to alter all their annual global temperature measurements before 2000 because their method of measuring was flawed
    As shown above, NOAA had posted the global temperature for 1997 at 16.91 C (62.45 F), slightly warmer than 1995 at 16.83 C (62.30 F), which shows they had no idea of temperatures in the 1990s. Both years were 2 Degrees warmer than today!

  6. No name says:

    On the basis of the 2019 NOAA anomaly of 0.95 (14.85 C), 0.97 C above the pre industrial temperature of 13.88 C, we have a leeway of only 0.65 C before we reach the “tipping point” of 1.5 C, which is 15.38 C.
    However I think they will take a long term average before the make predictions given the number of cooler years and the effects of the recent El-Nino events which have resulted in abnormally high readings and the cooling periods.e.g. The average anomaly over the last 18 years, which includes a strong El-Nino, has only been approximately 0.63 C (14.53 C) which is hardly a worry.

  7. Martin says:

    Thank you for the opportunity. re your NOAA Increased Anomalies 2 link
    According to the latest NOAA climate anomalies data using 13.90 C as a baseline, global temperature anomalies have been raised on several occasions from the original NOAA annual climate reports (still online) in every year after 2000, by an average of more than 0.06 C, which included 2017, (0.84 C to O.91 C) and 2018 from (0.79 C to 0.83 C) without explanation. The lifting of the 2017-18 anomalies appear to be for the purposes of minimising the cooling trend (0.20 C) after the strong El Nino event in 2015-16 which is a natural phenomenon and should not have been included when calculating the extent of global warming.
    If we remove the El-Nino anomalies between 2015-16 there was very little warming between 1880 -0.12 C (13.88 C) and 2014 at 0.69 C (14.59 C), based on the original annual climate report for 2014. 14.59 C minus 13.88 C = 0.81 C of warming since 1880 and half of that (0.40 C) had occurred between 1880 and 1945, (-0.12 C) 13.88 C to 1945 (+ 0.28 C) (14.18 C) .
