Temperature Adjustments Transform Arctic Climate History

Climategate II. This is NASA scientists we are talking about altering data to push the climate change cause!

Summary: Altogether, out of the stations currently operational and with records since 1940, and located in Greenland, Iceland, northern Norway, Russia and Siberia (for the latter three, above 65N), there are 19 stations that have been adjusted this way to produce an artificial warming trend, and only 4 stations that have been un-adjusted. No stations at all have been adjusted the other way. Can these temperature adjustments possibly be justified? It seems barely credible, given that so many have been altered. The normal logic of adjustment is that one station is an outlier, and needs to be homogenized back to the “pack”. Clearly the pack in this case have been altered. In Iceland, for instance, all four stations have been substantially adjusted.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

The Arctic Ice Melting

We are told that the biggest sign of “climate change” is the rapidly warming Arctic, even called the World’s thermometer, proof that global warming cannot have stopped.

Certainly, the evidence of this from GISS is persuasive.

Yet it is well established that the Arctic warmed up rapidly during the 1930’s and 40’s, before temperatures plunged in the 1960’s and 70’s. James Hansen, himself, recognised this, as the graph below from his 1987 paper Global Trends of Measured Surface Air Temperature ,  showed.

So how much is what we have been seeing in recent years just part of that cycle? How much warmer is the Arctic now than it was 80 years ago?

Quite a lot, according to GISS.

But can we trust their figures? We saw previously how the temperature history for Paraguay, and a large slice of the surrounding region, had been altered…
