NOAA lost global warming data when the agency’s computer crashed

February 21, 2017

  We have known for quite some time that NOAA and NASA were fudging the global temperatures in order to “hide the decline” and to “prove” the 97% lieSome of this was confirmed when a NOAA whistle-blower came forth and admitted the agency fudged the numbers heading into the United Nations global warming summit of 2015 in order to push its agenda.

  And now we are learning, according to this story, that NOAA lost some of the agency’s data when their computers crashed because the agency was not using the proper protocol to back up the data. Here is more:

In a second breach of agency protocol, the scientists involved, led by Tom Karl, failed to properly archive and store their datasets for testing and public disclosure.

Subsequently, some of the original datasets were lost when the computer used to process the data suffered a complete failure. 

    Here is some of what NOAA was up to before their computer conveniently crashed:

Karl, et al.’s 2015 “pause busting” research purported to show, contrary to every temperature dataset in existence at the time, Earth had not experienced an 18-year pause in rising temperatures, claiming instead everyone else’s data had been wrong and temperatures had continued to rise at an alarming rate right along with carbon-dioxide levels. As Bates put it, Karl’s team put their “thumb on the scale” to produce the results they wanted.

Much of the climate science community became suspicious of Karl’s claims over the months after the study was released, when it was discovered in the words of David Rose in the Daily Mail, “[Karl, et al.] took reliable readings from buoys but then ‘adjusted’ them upwards – using readings from seawater intakes on ships that act as weather stations … even though readings from the ships have long been known to be too hot.” As a result, the ocean temperature dataset used by Karl exaggerated the warming.

When you take good data and mix it with bad data and then average it, you no more produce reliable results than adding muddy river water to purified bottle water produces safe drinking water.

Karl’s actions show climate scientists wedded to the theory humans are causing catastrophic climate change learned nothing from the Climategate scandal of 2009. In Climategate, hacked e-mail exchanges between prominent climate scientists advising world leaders on climate policy exposed the scientists behaving badly. 

The scientists involved used a “trick” to remove inconvenient data from their datasets to “hide the decline,” in a critical set of proxy temperatures. In addition, the e-mails showed they collaborated to persecute and have fired an editor of a prominent climate science journal who allowed articles questioning the extent of humanity’s role in global warming to be published. 

The e-mails also showed the scientists actively sought to avoid releasing their taxpayer-funded data to other researchers and government bodies with oversight responsibility for testing and confirmation.

  And more still:

Karl and his team not only violated NOAA’s own protocols, they also ignored all the suggestions made by the scientific community to improve transparency and accountability for research. When the U.S. House of Representatives’ House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, the committee with oversight over federally funded research, requested and eventually subpoenaed NOAA’s documentation for its pause-busting claims, NOAA refused to turn over all the materials requested, citing concerns about confidentiality and the integrity of the scientific process. New investigations are being launched into NOAA’s research in light of Bates’ disclosures.

  And now some of the data, which was not backed up, is lost forever. Isn’t that convenient? What is it with all these government computers crashing at opportune times?  I guess NOAA bought their computers from the same place Lois Lerner and the IRS bought their computers…

    The heated earth industrialists have in the past and will continue now and in the future repeating their unchallenged lies so often they resonate as truth to those who want to believe the unprovable has been proven true. For example since the era of White House Bubba who in the world believes blow jobs are any kind of a sexual act? And Bill and Hill were and remain so good at pathological lying that who believes their lies are lying? But I digress and just as melting ice defies physical law and attains greater volume than expanded ice crystals so is the earth heating up on its way to the next mini ice age. Follow the money….

      Follow the money indeed! That, and a global redistribution of wealth is what this is all about. The MSM of course doesn’t report stories like this so the lie is continued, maybe Trump will say something and then the media will not be able to ignore it.

      Here’s the reasoning:

      Why is the well on top of the hill?
      Silly ‘thinking’ but “A Nursery Rhyme, the first step to your children’s education”
      See how ‘smart’ we’re taught to be!
      Probably is when they tumble they want to bring us with them.

    This is a national disgrace to have a “scientist” manipulate critical data. It is bad enough we have Al Gore running around posing as an expert. Karl should be arrested and charged with fraud, conspiracy and the misappropriation of Federal funds. He should be made to go to every hidh school and give a talk on ethics in science.

      As Peter said, it is all about the money. They don’t want to lose grants and so they gave away their integrity.

    … But on the other hand the article is from Heartland a leading climate skeptic.

    A commentary by Bob Ward who is the policy and communications director at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at the London School of Economics and Political Science. [who knows what his agenda is, but at least he cites sources]

    “More fake news from The Mail on Sunday”

    “An attack by the ‘The Mail on Sunday’ [the article cited in the Brietbart/Heartland article] on the accuracy and integrity of a recent paper [Thomas Karl] on global warming is based on inaccurate and misleading claims, including a fake graph.”

    Good grief!

    Who the hell do you believe anymore?

      Thanks for sharing this. And today an MSNBC host actually admitted the media’s job was to control what people think!

        That’s their goal – ‘they are the monarchy of thought and reality’! having ‘god complexes’! You know they think they’re smarter and better than us!! 🙂
