    Australian meteorologists have been caught changing temperature data from two crucial weather stations.  Would it surprise you to hear that they were altering the numbers to show warmer temperatures? Daily Caller: Agency officials admit that the problem with instruments recording low temperatures likely happened in several locations throughout Australia, but they refuse to admit to manipulating temperature readings. The BOM located missing logs in Goulburn and the Snow Mountains, both of which are in New South Wales. Meteorologist Lance Pidgeon watched the 13 degrees Fahrenheit Goulburn recording from July 2 disappear from the bureau's website. The temperature readings fluctuated briefly and...

    ...He did even worse; he launched a campaign of punitive lawsuits against anyone who criticized him. He has sued Mark Steyn, National Review Online, and climatologist Dr. Timothy Ball. Mann shot himself in the foot with that last. For several years, Mann had refused to produce his data for the court (in support of his own case), claiming that it was “proprietary.” After missing a February 20th deadline, he now finds himself in contempt. Under Canadian law, the court is now required to dismiss the suit. John O'Sullivan goes into detail: "The defendant in the libel trial, the 79-year-old Canadian...

    To all the women bundled in sweaters and blankets in your office air conditioning even though it's 100 degrees outside: A recent study says that it's not all in your head. It really IS cold. As many women bundle up against the arctic air conditioning, their male counterparts one cubicle over have no idea what all the fuss is about. It turns out that science says the office A/C may be biased toward temperatures that more comfortable for men — thanks to a formula from more than 50 years ago.

    What's Up With That? ^ | 20 August 2015 | Pat Frank
    Presented at World Federation of Scientists, Erice, Sicily, 20 August 2015 This is a version of the talk I gave about uncertainty in the global average air temperature record at the 48th Conference of the World Federation Scientists on “Planetary Emergences and Other Events,” at Erice, Sicily, in August of 2015. It was a very interesting conference and, as an aside, for me the take home message was that the short-term emergency is Islamic violence while the long-term emergency is some large-scale bolide coming down. Please, however, do not distract conversation into these topics. Abstract: I had a longer abstract,...
  • How NOAA used fuzzy math to make 2015 the ‘hottest year on record’

    Recently, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) announced that 2015 had the hottest global average temperature ever measured, shattering the previous record held in 2014. The news was widely reported in the media, including the New York Times, which declared that global warming, which had paused since 1998, is back and with a vengeance. The clear implication was that the sooner we stop using fossil fuels and putting all that carbon dioxide in the air, the better

  • Deep Ocean Water Temperature did not Rise in Past Decade, says NASA

    Main News ^ | Oct 7, 2014 | Felix Balthasar
    A new research has revealed that the deep ocean water temperature has not changed in the past decade. This study is based on the analysis of satellite data whereby the deep water temperature was measured by researchers at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The data analysis largely showed that deep ocean water was immune to global warming. Global warming has largely affected the temperature of upper Earth in a manner that it is leading to rise in global temperature, but surprisingly the temperature of deep ocean water was found to be unchanged since 2005.

    WUWT ^ | 9/3/2014 | Anthony Watts
    Record temperatures are absolute – no adjusments needed. One of the biggest complaints about climate science has to do with adjustments of temperature data, such as we’ve recently witnessed from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and have been long discussing here at WUWT about what NOAA does to US and global temperature data via techniques such as homogenization which basically swamp pristine station data with questionable data from stations compromised by UHI and micro-site biases. But, record temperatures are absolute, and there is no possible way that any adjustments can be made to such records. Otherwise, they become meaningless. So,...
  • Faulty and False Global Temperature Readings -- Anthony Watts, Meteorologist

    American Thinker ^ | July 21, 2014 | Jonathon Moseley
    Temperature measurements that are the basis for claims of global warming are defective and wrong. That’s the finding of a scientific team led by Anthony Watts. Watts is a meteorologist, editor of “Watts Up With That,” founder of the “Surface Station Project,” and my personal hero for his style and bravado. When global warming alarmists claim that the Earth is warming or that this was the hottest (year, month) ever, they are totaling up readings from rather simplistic, low-budget, small, automated weather stations scattered around the nation and the world. But about 90% of those weather stations violate the officially-published...

    Scientists manage to study the physics that connect the classical the quantum world 10 hours ago Enlarge Principle of the experiment: In the beginning the atom cloud is prepared in an almost perfectly ordered quantum state (symbolized by gray atoms). Over time, this quantum order is lost and disorder spreads through the system with a certain well-defined velocity (symbolized by the mixture of red and gray atoms). This disorder can be associated with the emergence of a temperature. The initial quantum properties are lost only through interactions between the atoms, without any influence from the outside world. How does a...
  • A sound idea to redefine temperature

    Chemistry World ^ | 11 July 2013 | Daniel Johnson
    UK scientists want to redefine temperature using the Boltzmann constant, changing the way in which it has been calculated for over 50 years. The group, working at the UK’s National Physical Laboratory, published a study today that could make it possible to measure temperature much more accurately in the future.The current definition of temperature relies upon the triple point of water – the state at which water can be ice, liquid and vapour in equilibrium – but this makes accurate measurements of extreme temperatures difficult. The team say that the solution is to link the standard unit of temperature,...

    American Thinker ^ | 11/28/2012 | Arvind Kumar
    According to the leaders of the global warming doomsday cult, the average surface temperature of Earth is 14 degrees Celsius (57.2 degrees Fahrenheit), but this is a new value which has quietly replaced the original average of 15 degrees Celsius (59 degrees Fahrenheit). In March 1988, a few months before NASA's James Hansen asserted before the Congress that global warming was in progress, the New York Times quoted him as saying that he used 59 degrees Fahrenheit as the average global temperature to calculate the temperature variations. ***** "One of the scientists, Dr. James E.

Remember all the warnings about the effects of shutting down coal plants and the fear that it would potentially cause brown outs or black outs. If they're going to happen this summer, I would think that it's very possible it could happen in the next couple of days.

    TEPCO blames high reactor temperature reading on broken thermometer National Feb. 14, 2012 - 06:40AM JST ( 10 ) TOKYO — A rapidly rising temperature reading at one of the reactors in Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant that sparked fears of another meltdown is probably caused by a broken thermometer, TEPCO said Monday. Scientists have been watching the equipment for around a week as it slowly rose above 35 degrees Celsius that the two other temperature gauges on the No. 2 reactor showed. There were concerns when it exceeded 80 degrees that a spontaneous nuclear reaction had started in the...

Increased CO2 and methane may not be the sole cause of climate change, but it’s definitely a cause and almost certainly a major one. Now, what next? My Forbes colleague Tim Worstall argues that this is a serious situation, but one in which the human race can make “marginal changes and still survive and thrive.” I agree with him on this – as long as we act quickly.

    All last week, global warming-obsessed media were rife with reports about record-breaking heat. Problem is, according to the National Climatic Data Center, and marvelously reported by the Hockey Schtick Sunday, almost no temperature records were actually broken: [T]he NOAA database of all-time Max Temperature...shows that there were no records broken on July 17, July 18, July 19, or July 20th. A total of 4 stations broke records on July 21, 20 on July 22, and 10 on July 23, 2011. That's right. There were only 34 new all-time daily temperature records set during last week's "record-breaking heat." (Snip) As you
