EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy recently told Congress that the Agency’s proposed Existing Source Performance Standards for coal fired power plants, which is widely believed to be the death knell for coal as an industry, is not about “pollution” control rather an opportunity for economic growth:
Earth To President Obama Climate Models Do Not Reflect Reality Time To Stop Your War On The US Fossil Fuel Industry. The Earth Is Cooling.
This is a guest post by Ross McKitrick. Tim Vogelsang and I have a new paper comparing climate models and observations over a 55-year span (1958-2012) in the tropical troposphere. Among other things we show that climate models are inconsistent with the HadAT, RICH and RAOBCORE weather balloon series. In a nutshell, the models not only predict far too much warming, but they potentially get the nature of the change wrong. The models portray a relatively smooth upward trend over the whole span, while the data exhibit a single jump in the late 1970s, with no statistically significant trend either side.
Our paper is called “HAC-Robust Trend Comparisons Among Climate Series With Possible Level Shifts.” It was published in Environmetrics, and is available with Open Access thanks to financial support from CIGI/INET. Data and code are here and in the paper’s SI.

Believers in Catastrophic Climate Change theory never check the data they base their beliefs on to see if it is authentic http://wp.me/ps8ST-5TH. Believe skyrocketing Fuel Prices that shaft poor and whack nature will save the earth http://youtu.be/5igyXyJKL_0 Believe that Renewables are a good alternative to fossil fuel when they are just another inferior rendition of fossil fuel that require fossil fuel in their production, operation and disposal. http://youtu.be/v6uVnyjTb58 So who are the “Deniers”?
The graph below shows the numbers of USHCN stations which set or tied their all-time record for record heat, per year.
Note that NCDC’s fake record hot summer of 2012 didn’t even rank in the top 30. There is no time bias to this graph. If 2012 matched 1936, both years would be counted.
BTW – all-time record temperatures can not be explained away using TOBS – even by the worst climate crooks.
Time for the House and Senate to investigate government data tampering being used to shaft poor people with via “skyrocketing” fuel prices and political favors given to green crony capitalists by politicians to prop up their companies at the expense of the tax payers.
It may not be obvious to everyone yet, but this morning’s TOBS discovery is huge.
I need to run now, but here is a quick summary of things I can prove so far about the US temperature record.
- Until 1999 NASA said the US was on a long term cooling trend
- Until 1989 NOAA said there was no long term warming in the US
- Sometime after 2000, NOAA made a large downwards shift in the absolute baseline temperature. This is probably why Nick and Zeke keep insisting on the use of anomalies, as it hides the shift.
- Temperatures are being adjusted an average of about 1.5F relative to the 1930s
- The raw data does not support the validity of a TOBS adjustment
- NOAA is doing something in their conversion from daily data to monthly data to create a bias which selectively cools the past – which in turn creates the appearance that TOBS…

Climate Activists Claim That Their Opposition To Cheap Energy From Fossil Fuel Is To “Save The Earth” From The Life Giving Gas CO2. However It Seems Clear Their True Aim

USHCN raw station data shows an average of 7 degrees/century cooling since 1998, while their fabricated (infilled) data shows almost no cooling. The fabricated data is data which has no underlying station data, and is manufactured by NOAA.
The next graph shows the divergence between the fabricated data, and the actual measured data. They are diverging at 6.5 degrees/century
Astonishingly, a number of well known scientists have been interviewed by the press saying that this is all good, and that my complaints should be ignored.
It defies explanation that USHCN would do this, and even more astonishing that anyone defends this practice of data tampering which destroys any meaning in the temperature record, and makes it both useless and destructive to science.
