NOAA REMOVED THE PAUSE IN WARMING TO SAVE THE PARIS AGREEMENT
There had been no global warming for at least 14 years prior to the Paris Climate Conference scheduled to be held in early December 2015 and UN officials were concerned that the long pause in global warming could cause delegates from participating countries to shy away from any agreement which might also have undermined the future of the IPCC.
Enter Tom Karl, senior climatologist at NOAA, whose pause buster paper removed the lack of warming by raising annual global temperatures by an average of almost 0.07 degrees Celsius in the period between 2001 to 2015 had assured the success of the conference. Karl who retired a year later, was no stranger to controversy after having to apologise for a graph he published in 1997 claiming that the 1997 global temperature was the warmest of the Century that had reached a ridiculous 62.45 Celsius which was almost 4 degrees Celsius warmer than the 2020 global temperature! In the same graph he indicated the global temperature in 1990 was 61.50 Celsius.
A fellow scientist, Dr John Bates, A high-level whistle blower of America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), claimed it breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the sensational but flawed report, aimed at making the maximum possible impact on world leaders including Barack Obama and David Cameron at the UN climate conference in Paris in 2015.
The Daily Mail (Aust) Newspaper revealed astonishing evidence that the organisation that is the world’s leading source of climate data rushed to publish a landmark paper that exaggerated global warming and was timed to influence the historic Paris Agreement on climate change. The report claimed that the ‘pause’ or ‘slowdown’ in global warming in the period since 1998 – revealed by UN scientists in 2013 – never existed, and that world temperatures had been rising faster than scientists expected. Launched by NOAA with a public relations fanfare, it was splashed across the world’s media, and cited repeatedly by politicians and policy makers.
