Global warming hoax: 2015 not so warm
The claim that 2015 was the warmest year in recorded history has no scientific basis. On 20 January, NASA and the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) trumpeted that “2015 was the warmest year ever recorded on Earth, and it was not even close.” The cherrypicked and statistically altered data released to support this statement contradicts the official satellite temperature record, which identifies 1998 as the warmest year since this dataset commenced in December 1978. The second-warmest year was 2010, and 2015 only ranked as the third-warmest year since 1979.
The NASA team found that globally averaged temperatures in 2015 were 0.87 degrees Celsius above the norm (defined as a 1951–80 base period). However, the Remote Sensing Systems official satellite dataset for the temperature of the lower troposphere—the accuracy of which NASA in 1997 attested to on its own website—shows that 2015 was only 0.25 °C warmer than the 1979–2015 average, and the warmest year, 1998 was just 0.81 °C warmer than the coolest year of 1985.
In any case, why are we diverting billions of dollars of precious resources over a fraction of one degree Celsius? What species would notice the difference, when temperatures between night and day, let alone between the seasons, change umpteen-fold this fraction of one degree? Thousands of scientists are asking questions such as this, but the establishment media blacks them out.
Following NASA and NOAA’s announcement, prominent scientist Dr Richard Lindzen, an emeritus Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at MIT, told the Climate Depot website: “Frankly, I feel it is proof of dishonesty to argue about things like small fluctuations in temperature or the sign of a trend. Why lend credibility to this dishonesty?”
Climatologist and former NASA scientist Dr Roy Spencer likewise exposed the hoax. On his website on 22 January he explained his experience at NASA: “I was told what I could and couldn’t say to Congress… [global warming alarmist] Jim Hansen got to say whatever he wanted. I grew tired of it, and resigned.” Dr Spencer also noted that raw temperature data is homogenised (statistically altered) and “forces good data to match bad data”, adding “[t]hat the raw data has serious spurious warming effects is easy to demonstrate … and has been for the last 50 years in the peer-reviewed literature … why is it not yet explicitly estimated and removed?” (Emphasis in original.)
Satellite temperature data gives a much more representative profile of the Earth than do land-based measurements, many of which are in growing cities with an “urban heat island” effect. It is no surprise temperatures will rise in growing cities, but to cherrypick such results when cities and urban areas only take up a tiny fraction of the Earth’s surface is simply scientific fraud. While 2015 was actually the third-warmest year since 1979, considering the current El Niño is at least the strongest since 1998 we should have experienced record temperatures if global warming were true. But we didn’t.
The opposite is true. Solar cycles indicate global cooling is the biggest climate danger for civilisation in the immediate future. Scientists such as Prof. Carl-Otto Weiss, Advisor to the European Institute for Climate and Energy have forecast immediate cooling, and perhaps we are now seeing the evidence. The cold snap now hitting East Asia is causing havoc. In Hong Kong temperatures dropped to 3.3 degrees Celsius on Sunday, the coldest in 59 years. In Taiwan, the capital Taipei recorded a low of 4 degrees Celsius, the coldest in 44 years and local media reported 90 people died due to the cold weather, mainly from hypothermia and cardiac arrest; five more died in Japan. The southern Chinese city of Guangzhou, on the Tropic of Cancer, saw sleet for the first time in 60 years. The United States has suffered one of the worst snow storms in a century this month and last year New York City experienced its coldest February in 81 years.
As the CEC exposed in its landmark 2007 New Citizen headlined “Global Warming is a Fraud!”, if we were to shut down industry and energy-intensive agriculture in the way the “global warming” fraudsters demand, the world’s population would collapse far below its present level of 7.3 billion. This genocide is the actual intention behind this hoax, which the elite European aristocrats who created the modern green movement and hijacked climate science, such as Prince Philip, have openly and repeatedly stated.
