Fabricating A Warming: NASA Now Altering ‘Unadjusted” Data To Create New, Warmer ‘Unadjusted’ Data

By Kirye

and Pierre Gosselin

One fellow climate blogger recently wrote on how he’s been been looking at GHCN ‘unadjusted’ data and noticed that scientists at NASA appear to have been altering them: “This is a fairly disturbing development,” he wrote.

Heating up Reykjavik and Nuuk

Cited as an example is Reykyavik, Iceland. According to Tony Heller here, “The current version V4 has massively cooled the past, to make it look like Iceland is warming.”

Heller then posted a chart showing the difference between v2 unadjusted and the new v4 ‘unadjusted’ for the Reykjavik station:

Spreadsheet

Heller also found here that the same appears to be the case for Nuuk, Greenland as well.

Hachijojima, Japan

With this in mind, we checked the Japanese station Hachijojima, which is situated on a small island in the Pacific well off the coast of Japan. Also here we see that the unadjusted data have been altered, too. The original v3 data depicted by the green curve are compared to the new “unadjusted” v4 data shown by the blue curve:

Data source:  and 

The new “unadjusted” v4 data have been clearly altered to cool a part of the past and thus enhance the appearance of warming. There appears to be a system behind all the adjustments: Every time the adjustments create more warming.

Antarctica

We also checked over the NASA GISS UHCN data for Syowa, Antarctica:

GHCN V3 Unadjusted: GHCN V4 Unadjusted:

Also see an animated comparison here. Here as well we see that the data have been altered.

Edinburgh

The same is found in Edinburgh, Scotland as well:

Edinburgh(Airport GHCN V3 Unadjusted: / GHCN V4 Unadjusted:

Obviously the history contradicts the global warming theory, and so a group of activist scientists at NASA GISS have taken it upon themselves to rewrite it.

Why climate predictions are so difficult

.
.
So climate sensitivity… is likely somewhere between 1.5 and 4.5 degrees. This result has not changed until today, about 40 years later. And that’s exactly the problem.

Maybe the problem lies in thinking that that is the problem.

Booker’s Farewell

By Paul Homewood

   

 Sadly Christopher Booker has had to give up his column for the Sunday Telegraph because of ill health.

I have been aware of his health problems for some months now. Nevertheless it is still a shock to read his final column.

It tells us about his links to the Telegraph which go back 60 years to his first job with them, writing reviews of jazz records, then joining the newly launched Sunday Telegraph as a jazz critic in 1961.

Since then he has gained fame as the first editor of Private Eye, scriptwriter for That Was The Week That Was, before rejoining the Telegraph with a monthly Saturday column in 1972.

But it was his Sunday column which probably brought him most fame. As he writes today:

 One of my guiding principles as a journalist had long been to bring to light what I considered to be some shockingly important story which was not being properly covered elsewhere. And one of the reasons I have been very grateful to The Sunday Telegraph is the unusual freedom it gave me to pursue a long succession of such campaigning stories, if necessary for years on end.

From the EU to global warming, and bureaucracy to the BBC, we will all miss his insights and willingness to challenge conventional wisdom.

He will be sorely missed.
