No, absolutely not — the NOAA did not ‘fake’ any climate change data

The fact that we are still debating man-made climate change in 2017 is depressing. We have thousands of peer reviewed studies, a scientific consensus, and even an international agreement on climate change — but some people just don’t get it. Or rather, they don’t want to get it. In a recently published article, David Rose from the Daily Mail claims that we were all tricked into believing climate change is real when nothing’s really happening. This is, to put it in a term that mister Rose might understand, bollocks.



The article came out with the title Exposed: How world leaders were duped into investing billions over manipulated global warming data. First of all, the title is a true Daily Mail classic — it has all the right clickbait elements. A catchy and needless intro to grab your attention (Exposed), strong words to show how they have the truth and everyone else is wrong (duped, manipulated), and big words to show the scale of the “lie” (world leaders, investing billions).

It is, indeed, a true tabloid title, but that’s the least of the problems here. The article caused quite a stir last week, with people presumably believing it to be true — though truth is likely of secondary importance for most Mail readers. The gist was about two climate scientists arguing about methodology. Not about the validity of any climate data, just about the methodology. This type of argument is quite common in most fields of science but can be easily taken out of context by an ill-intentioned “journalist.”

Basically, Rose interviewed retired NOAA scientist John Bates, who expressed some criticism about his former colleague, Thomas Karl, particularly about a 2015 paper that he had published (again, note — one paper on climate change, among thousand others). Rose turned Bates into a “whistleblower” and then made the whole thing out to be a global conspiracy to promote the hidden agenda of climate scientists. Checkmate, atheists! Well, in reality, nothing could be further from the truth.

Bates wasn’t even questioning climate change, he was just making a point about how Karl wasn’t rigorous enough in analyzing data about the so-called “global warming hiatus” which we discussed in 2015. The idea that climate change has been naturally slowing down has since been debunked by several other studies, but it is still being cherry picked by some parts of the media. So Daily Mail’s David Rose jumped onto this bandwagon and made it seem that Bates was accusing the NOAA of tampering with data, and then spilled all of this onto climate change itself, inventing this huge conspiracy. Because you know, people love conspiracies. Bates was quick to clarify that this is not the case and told E&E News that:


“The issue here is not an issue of tampering with data, but rather really of timing of a release of a paper that had not properly disclosed everything.”

So what we have here is a debate on a paper, not a debate on climate change. For the billionth time, there is no debate on climate change. The only thing that’s left to talk about is how we can limit its impact and adapt to a warmer future. However, a lie gets halfway around the world by the time the truth puts its pants on, and the Daily Mail article went viral, while Bates’ rebuttal didn’t.


Not the first time 

It’s really not the first time something like this has happened — and probably not the last time either. NOAA has been harassed by climate change denial groups for years. Again, this is not a science war, this is just a media war. The science is clear, but the media is trying to make it look like it isn’t.

“They’re not serious articles,” said Adam Sobel, a Columbia University climate scientist, referring to a similar article published in the Daily Mail. “They paint it as though it’s an argument between Breitbart and Buzzfeed when it’s an argument between a snarky Breitbart blogger  and the entire world’s scientific community, and the overwhelming body of scientific evidence.”


Furthermore, as we pointed out in a previous article, David Rose himself is a well-known climate change denier, who has published questionable articles in the past (to say the least). He stated that global land temperatures have plunged by more than 1C since the middle of this year. But this is not only false and misleading, it’s also pointless:

• for starters, this claim relies only on satellite data, which only dates to 1978. Surface thermometers, going back to 1800 put the drop into perspective: it is a drop, but not a record one.

• secondly, the claim conveniently discusses only land temperatures – when you consider both ocean and land temperatures (so essentially, global temperatures), the drop isn’t so significant.

• also, this event is completely normal when an El Niño event transitions to La Niña. Every serious climate scientist knew and expected this, and to claim that this was surprising or somehow related to long-term global shifts is irresponsible.

• lastly, this was greatly exaggerated and taken out of the global context – it was made to seem as if this (again, completely expected change) took everyone by surprise and meant that global warming isn’t happening.


This cherrypicking    was taxed by scientists around the world but again — the sensationalist, clickbait, manipulative story went viral whereas the hard core science didn’t.


“This is an astounding example of cherry-picking the data,” said Kerry Emanuel, a professor at MIT. “Global land temperatures fluctuate significantly from one month to the next, and the article in question appears to have cherry-picked a drop on global land temperatures (not including the ocean, which covers 70% of the globe) for a single month.”

At this point, it seems safe to say David Rose is a man with an agenda — denying climate change and inventing conspiracies. The Daily Mail is a publication supporting that agenda, but it’s not the only one. Several other publications around the world vomit similar stories. Make of that what you wish, but as Futurism points out, keep in mind Occam’s razor: “Among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected.”

Would you go with the idea that the entire scientific community, the world’s best and brightest minds, are faking a massive amount of data, working together worldwide to develop the world’s biggest scam? Or is it just that the media is following lobby interests and distorting the truth? Choose wisely.

What is happening and what is coming? Alex’s guest is risk analyst, published author, and host of Robert Scribbler’s Blog. From the worst fears to faint glimmers of hope, the hunt for climate truth. Plus short clips of Dr. Michael Mann (when money buys anti-science) and Dr. Jennifer Francis (a new Arctic feedback). Radio Ecoshock 170125

Download or listen to this Radio Ecoshock show in CD Quality (56 MB) or Lo-Fi (14 MB)

http://www.ecoshock.org/2017/01/scribblers-of-climate-truth.html

I’ve got lots of goodies for you in this blog:

* a new You tube video from Radio Ecoshock “Climate Science Stunners”
* a link to Dr. Jennifer Francis video, revealing a new Arctic feedback
* links to every post we discussed this week, from Robert Scribbler’s Blog
* a link to the Commonwealth Club of California panel discussion “Is Climate Denial Destroying Our Planet?”

CLIMATE SCIENCE STUNNERS

Climate science is coming in so fast, we can hardly make sense of it. So I’ve begun a new series of You tube videos on the most important climate stories I covered in 2016. The first one is one the Arctic, where the greatest change of all took place.


There will be more Climate Science Stunners as I get time. Please subscribe to my You tube Channel and invite others to do the same. We’ve just got to get this information out there, whether Donald Trump likes it or not!

Before we get to the star of this week’s show, here is the video link for the 2 minutes from Dr. Jennifer Francis from Rutgers that I play in this week’s show. This was just posted on You tube January 16th by John Cook. It’s about a new Arctic feedback.

Let’s move on now with our guest, Robert Marston Fanney from Robert Scribbler’s Blog.

ROBERT MARSTON FANNEY – THE “SCRIBBLER”

In world where unreality is taking over, there is a floodlight to find the facts. It’s called science, but that’s not easy to understand. We need translators, we need scouts to call out from ahead. Robert Marston Fanney is one of those voices.

He has two great skills that helped him. Robert was a threat analyst for the world’s premier information group, Jane’s. He knows how to dig and research. Robert Marston Fanney is also the author of a popular science fiction series called “Luthiel’s Song“. Taking those skills to analyze danger, and his creative writing, Robert Marston Fanney has produced one of the world’s top hubs for disseminating climate science. It’s called Robert Scribbler’s Blog.

It’s a pleasure to welcome Robert Marston Fanney back to Radio Ecoshock.

It’s been a while, but now three years later, people are still downloading our first conversation in 2013 at a rate of about 200 a month. That was “I Have a Confession to Make”. It’s even more for our 2015 Radio Ecoshock show “Five Stories Seldom Told”.

Manhattan-Sized Iceberg Breaks off Antarctica

Feb. 19, 2017 02:04PM EST

Julia Travers

SNIPPET:

Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier lost another large chunk of ice at the end of January. The section of ice that broke off the glacier on the western coast of Antarctica was roughly the size of Manhattan. It was 10 times smaller than the piece the same glacier sloughed in July 2015.

After the enormous piece of ice broke off The Pine Island Glacier in 2015, cracks were spotted during a late 2016 flyover, Climate Central reported. The recent smaller, though still substantial, ice breakage is considered an "after-shock" event, Ohio State glaciologist Ian Howat told NASA. NASA's Operational Land Imager captured a series of images documenting the ice loss.

Eye opening graphics!  :o

Exxon-Mobil and Lee Raymond who was at the Company from 1963-2005 was the person who started the cover-up of climate change. Lee Raymond has also been on the Board of Directors when JPMorgan/Chase committed all their criminal acts leaving that company with a Rap Sheet a mile long. $20 BILLION in fines, but NO-ONE went to jail for all the financial burdens and losses JPM/CHase caused millions of people. Chase is still illegally foreclosing on homes.

Another person on the Board of Directors for Exxon is William Weldon who is also on the Board for JPMorgan/Chase. Weldon was the CEO at Johnson & Johnson during the production and sales of the TOXIC TALC that is causing cancer in so many women.
Jamie Dimon head of JPM/Chase walks around scot-free from the long Rap Sheet of Criminal Acts that were instigated by him. Now Jamie Dimon is out promoting the "Millions in Grants" that JPM/Chase is giving to communities and for scholarships for education ~~~ BUT ~~~ Dimon does NOT explain that this is STOLEN money from illegal home foreclosures, from illegal criminal acts, benefitting the bank.

These men have NO consciences, they are a narcissistic group of men with no morals, who only think of MONEY and GREED and Trump is at the top of the list with his egomaniac personality who will give these men a clearance to destroy for their own personal benefit.  Gerry Lednicky Seger

Viewing Trump's Extreme Climate Denial From a Small Island Nation in Peril

 Monday, February 20, 2017 

By Dahr Jamail, Truthout | Report

SNIPPET:

As global ocean waters warm, coral bleaching events continue to wipe out reefs.

Recently released data from Japan's Environment Ministry revealed that coral bleaching has killed 70.1 percent of that nation's largest coral reef, off the coast of Okinawa, as of the end of 2016. That is up from 56.7 percent, merely a few months earlier.

As the atmosphere warms, it can hold more moisture, so extreme flooding is becoming the norm across the globe.

According to the reinsurance giant Munich Re, the US had more floods in 2016 than any year in recorded history with 19 different floods swamping the nation.

Pioneers: Climatologists' 38-year-old paper predicted what we're seeing happen in the Arctic melt 

By Meteor Blades   

Wednesday Feb 22, 2017 · 12:22 PM EST

SNIPPET:

"It was one of these landmark papers," said Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center. "She was the first to put together the thermodynamic sea ice model.

What's more, collection of better data on sea ice over recent years has strengthened the models, making their predictions even more reliable—and disturbing. [...]

Serreze, who began his career in 1982, said Parkinson's results—and the reality of what is happening now in the Arctic—would have been hard to believe then. "I just could never have imagined it," he said. "Over the course of my career, to see this happening to the Arctic? It's this eye-opener to me that climate change is not this far away thing—it's here and now."

736 Record Highs Set This Week

SNIPPET:

Multiple cities—from Washington, DC to Toronto to Milwaukee—smashed temperature records this week, as a record February warm spell continues to spread across the U.S.

Nearly 3,000 daily maximum temperature records were set during the first half of the month. During the past week, 736 record highs were set with no record lows recorded. Thursday, Falcon Dam, Texas recorded a (yet unverified) temperature of 107 F—the highest temperature ever recorded in the U.S. in February.

The unusually early spring weather is triggering a new type of guilt among the climate conscious: Both the Chicago Tribune and the Atlantic highlighted this week the bizarre mental calculus of enjoying warm weather that's a clear sign of a changing climate.

Scientists hold rally in Boston to protest threat to science

February 19, 2017

Hundreds of scientists, environmental advocates and their supporters held a rally in Boston on Sunday to protest what they see as increasing threats to science and research in the U.S.

The scientists, some dressed in white lab coats, called on President Donald Trump's administration to recognize evidence of climate change and take action on various environmental issues.

Geoffrey Supran, a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who studies renewable energy solutions to climate change, said scientists are responding to the Trump administration's "anti-science rhetoric."

Johanna Klein, of Brookline, Mass., an internal medical doctor, center, holds a placard and chants during a demonstration by members of the scientific community, environmental advocates and supporters, Sunday, Feb. 19, 2017, in Boston. The scientists at the event said they want President Donald Trump's administration to recognize evidence of climate change and take action on various environmental issues. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)

"We're really trying to send a message today to Mr. Trump that America runs on science, science is the backbone of our prosperity and progress," Supran said.

The "Rally to Stand Up for Science" in Boston's Copley Square was held outside of the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting, one of the first major gatherings of scientists since Trump was elected in November.

Protesters held signs that read "Science Matters," ''Scientists Pursuing Truth, Saving the World" and "Make America Smart Again."


Some of those who turned out criticized Trump's appointment of Scott Pruitt as head of the Environmental Protection Agency over the objections of environmental groups.

During six years as the attorney general of Oklahoma, Pruitt filed 14 lawsuits challenging EPA regulations. He previously expressed skepticism about scientific evidence showing the planet is heating up and that humans are to blame. However, during his Senate confirmation hearing last month, he said he disagreed with Trump's past statements that global warming is a hoax.

Chicago had no snow in January or February, a first in 146 years

The National Weather Service says it didn't snow in Chicago in January or February, the first time that's happened in 146 years of official record-keeping.

http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/chicago-had-no-snow-in-january-or-february-a-first-in-146-years/

Agelbert NOTE: IOW, SINCE they started keeping accurate records 146 years ago, IT'S BEEN A LOT LONGER THAN 146 years; try 3 MILLION Years.
