So Phil Jones… asshat. Lying asshat. Lying, attention whoring, sympathy seeking asshat.
He just can’t seem to have learned the first rule of holes. STOP DIGGING, ASSHOLE!
First, he was just disorganized.
Then he was just a bad record keeper.
Then, he was a weeping ignoramus, sniveling about having considered suicide.
Then he admitted that maybe, just maybe he did a teeensy, weeensy doctoring of the data about alleged global warming,
Fact of the matter is, he’s just a liar.
While the Jones temperature analysis relies upon the GHCN network of‘climate-approved’ stations whose number has been rapidly dwindling in recent years, I’m using original data from stations whose number has been actually growing over time. I use only stations operating over the entire period of record so there are no spurious temperature trends caused by stations coming and going over time. Also, while the Jones dataset is based upon daily maximum and minimum temperatures, I am computing an average of the 4 temperature measurements at the standard synoptic reporting times of 06, 12, 18, and 00 UTC.
I compute average monthly temperatures in 5 deg. lat/lon grids quares, as Jones does, and then compare the two different versions over a selected geographic area. Here I will show results for the 5deg. grids covering the United States for the period 1973 through 2009.
The following plot shows that the monthly U.S. temperature anomalies from the two datasets are very similar (anomalies in both datasets are relative to the 30-year base period from 1973 through 2002). But while the monthly variations are very similar, the warming trend in the Jones dataset is about 20% greater than the warming trend in my ISH data analysis.
And speaking of liars… why can’t the inventor of the Intertubez just go away?
I, for one, genuinely wish that the climate crisis were an illusion.But unfortunately, the reality of the danger we are courting has not been changed by the discovery of at least two mistakes in the thousands of pages of careful scientific work over the last 22 years by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. In fact, the crisis is still growing because we are continuing to dump 90 million tons of global-warming pollution every 24 hours into the atmosphere — as if it were an open sewer.
I, for one, genuinely wish that Al Gore would fade into irrelevancy where he belongs, but I fear that’s not going to happen.
Despite overwhelming proof that Jones and crew tried to perpetrate the biggest fraud upon the world in history, the Goremeister still claims that we’re in some kind of climate crisis. His assertion? Hey! What’s a few mistakes? The world is STILL warming!
It is true that the climate panel published a flawed overestimate of the melting rate of debris-covered glaciers in the Himalayas, and used information about the Netherlands provided to it by the government, which was later found to be partly inaccurate. In addition, e-mail messages stolen from the University of East Anglia in Britain showed that scientists besieged by an onslaught of hostile,make-work demands from climate skeptics may not have adequately followed the requirements of the British freedom of information law.
Uh… Yes. Let’s conveniently overlook what is actually IN those emails – like proof to hide evidence that didn’t support their scientific theory… like evidence of intentional fraud… Let’s not focus on that! Just listen to Al!
Yeah, there’s a crisis alright, dumbass! It’s now March, and the snow STILL hasn’t melted from my property! There’s also a crisis of intelligence, because there are actually shitnozzles out there who still believe you!
But the scientific enterprise will never be completely free of mistakes. What is important is that the overwhelming consensus on global warming remains unchanged.
That’s right. It doesn’t matter that the evidence was fabricated! It matters that there are still dumbasses out there – maybe five of them – who agree that evil man has caused the earth to warm. And as long as those five dumbasses agree with Al Gore, something must be done!
Oh, and by the way… the scientific genius and inventor of the Internet claims that the record snowfall and cold this year? Yep. Caused by global warming!
Weren’t the eco zealots claiming just a few years ago that the record lack of snow and mild winter was caused by global warming?
For the life of me, I can’t figure out how someone as obtuse as Al Gore ever got any credibility whatsoever.
Really, isn’t it about time he faded into obscurity, along with Octomom and Balloon Boy?
