US Government in Massive New Global Warming Scandal – NOAA

warming data apparently cooked by U.S. government-funded body shows astounding
temperature fraud with increases averaging 10 to 15 degrees Fahrenheit.
tax-payer funded National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
has become mired in fresh global warming data scandal involving numbers
for the Great Lakes region that substantially ramp up averages.
federal agency appears to be implicated in the most blatant and extreme
case of climate data fraud yet seen. Official records have been confirmed
as evidence that a handful of temperature records for the Great Lakes region
have been hiked up by literally hundreds of degrees to substantially inflate
the average temperature range for the northeastern United States.
web pages at the center of this latest climate storm were created by NOAA
in partnership with Michigan State University.
Administration Mired in Another Climategate-style Data Fix
under the pseudonym ‘Sportsmen’ anonymously tipped off skeptic
blog, Climatechangefraud.com. Independent analysts affirm the web pages
email the faceless whistleblower explains that what precipitated the scoop
was “a rather dubious report in the media that the Great Lakes temperatures
have risen 10 to 15 degrees, I found it was downright laughable.”
(Just a few examples of media hysteria here
“ Prior to this report I would frequent the ‘Coastal Watch’
temperature maps for northern Lake Michigan. When this report came out it
dawned on me that the numbers didn't match what I had been reading on the
Coastal Watch temperature page.”
a scheme called ‘Sea Grant’ NOAA collaborates with national
universities to compile an official federal temperature record. In this
instance, the partnersip is with Michigan University’s ‘Coastal
the two institutions show temperature maps for northern Lake Michigan registering
an absurd 430 degrees Fahrenheit -yes, you read it right –that’s
four hundred and thirty degrees-and this is by no means the highest temperature
recorded on the charts.

need to be scientist to figure out that the Great Lakes would have boiled
away at a mere 212 degrees so something has seriously gone awry inside this

300 uniformed service members who make up the NOAA Commissioned Officer
Corps. But don’t bet on anyone being court-marshalled over this latest
global warming fiasco.
for entirely from federal taxes, the shamed public body’s key responsibilities
include warning of dangerous weather and protection of ocean and coastal
resources, and conducts research to improve understanding and stewardship
of the environment.
State University Also Complicit in Fraud?
worst evidence of hyper-inflated global warming data is on a web page entitled,
‘Michigan State University Remote Sensing & GIS Research and Outreach
another web page identifies that Michigan State University’s ‘Coastal
Watch’ site is officially connected to NOAA thus implicating both
institutions in a climate data conspiracy. At the bottom of the web page
mention is made of ‘Sea
Grant’ that is described as a “unique partnership of public
and private sectors that combines research, education and technology transfer
for public service.“
legend further boasts that such data is shared across “ a national
network of universities meeting the changing environmental and economic
needs of Americans in coastal ocean and Great Lakes regions.”
Makes it White Hot in Wisconsin
our intrepid anonymous whistleblower wasn’t done yet. He pointed out
that Egg Harbor, Wisconsin, really got cooking this July 4th around 9:59AM,
according to NOAA
and Coast Watch. It was there, at the bottom left row of the temperature
data points, that the records reveal on that day a phenomenally furnace-like
600 degrees Fahrenheit. (Click

Egg Harbor by Royalbroil
analysis of the web pages shows that the incredibly wide temperature swings
were occurring in remarkably short 10-hour periods-and sometimes in less
than 5 hours. Strangely, none of the 250 citizens of the 78 families living
in the village appeared to notice this apocalyptic heatwave during their
Data Spike Hikes Heating Averages
our sharp-eyed stranger comments, “ As I understand it, the current
available Gif data maps are several for the latest dates, but the archives
have less dates to choose from. It's possible that in the past these numbers
were incorrect but in the archive system you do not see the numbers that
could have been in gross error.”
may reasonably be inferred climate fraudsters had a perfect opportunity
here to fraudulently apply overcooked and overlooked data so that America’s
Joe Public would be none the wiser that a few climate numbers vastly ramped
up the national temperature averages.
NOAA publishes a caveat at the bottom right corner of their web page warning
about their data is “Not to be used for navigation purposes!”
current head of NOAA is
Dr. Jane Lubchenco, nominated by President Barack Obama and confirmed
by the United States Senate on March 19, 2009 and is the first woman to
serve as NOAA administrator. On her appointment Lubchenco declared that
science would guide the agency and that she expects it to play a role in
developing a green economy. You can say that again!
now interested in doing their own detective work may wish to peruse the
further data found here
ascertain whether climate doomsayers have rigged more ‘real world’
temperatures in a shabby scheme to win support for green energy tax hikes.
If you find anything be sure to drop Lubchenco a line here.
major concern here is whether the false data has been fed into climate models
ascertaining the broader temperature averages for the entire United States.
The alleged response from NOAA as shown in the comments below this article,
indicates evasiveness by Chuck Pistis, NOAA Program Coordinator, in answering
the question. Why so?
applied due diligence and asked internationally renowned climatologist,
Dr. Timothy Ball to take a look at the numbers. Here is what Dr. Ball observed:
have read your article and believe it is a very valid observation
of the data as reported. At best the entire incident indicates gross incompetence,
at worst it indicates a deliberate attempt to create a temperature record
that suits the political message of the day."
I have written to NOAA but am still awaiting their reply. I specifically
asked whether this extravagantly false data was fed into climate models
to help ramp up the U.S. climate numbers by "400%" as commented
on by analyst, Jo Nova (more
here). The Australian researcher provides an excellent summary to an
important paper that removes all doubt that climate models are utterly flawed.
As Dr. Ball points out—perhaps we know why.
