2012 : A Record Data Tampering Year

NCDC published the famous graph below, which has fooled millions of people into believing that 2012 was the hottest year ever in the US, and that the US is rapidly warming.  Only problem is – NCDC’s own thermometer data shows that the US has been cooling, and that 2012 was second warmest after 1921.

The graph below shows the average of all of the daily min-max measured temperature data which NCDC uses. Note that the US has been cooling since 1895, and 2012 was slightly cooler than 1921.

The animation below switches between the measured data, and the published temperatures.


The way they created the fake warming trend was by warming the present, and massively cooling the past.

NCDC does not put any warnings or disclaimers on their graphs indicating that they are not showing the measured thermometer data, or that the data has been altered to turn a cooling trend into a warming trend.

  1. The Iconoclast says:

    From wikipedia: In criminal law, fraud is intentional deception made for personal gain or to damage another individual; the related adjective is fraudulent, and verb is defraud. Fraud is a crime and a civil law violation, though the specific criminal law definition varies by legal jurisdiction. Defrauding people or entities of money or valuables is a common purpose of fraud.

  2. Andy DC says:

    13,974 peer reviewed papers approved by 97% of climate experts tell us that since 2013 is colder than 2012, the adjustments this year will necessarily be even larger in order to keep the scam alive.

  3. Robert of Ottawa says:

    It is a very sly strategy of the warmistas to cool past temperatures, rather than warm present ones, because present temps can be verified; past ones cannot.

    This to me is prima facie evidence of deliberate fraud.

    The very, tightly linear, trend of adjustments downwards towards the past is not credible. It is not hard to believe that earlier thermometers were less accurate than modern ones; but hard to believe that they were all having errors in the same direction; genrally, errors are statistically distributed around the actual value. It is all a deliberate lie by Crimatologists: Lysenko’s acolytes .

  4. Andy Oz says:

    Once the fraud cases are brought against those institutions tampering with data, the penalties may well put them out of business and all the quack climate scientists out of a job.


  5. Traitor In Chief says:

    A bit quieter without the Drudge firehose running, eh? Seems a whole lot of readers know about the scam… encouraging. If we ever restore a functioning justice dept, we could prosecute.

  6. slimething says:

    Or is the real reason the Holder DOJ suing S&P because of the credit downgrading? This is the same Eric Holder that says illegal aliens have a civil right to be U.S. citizens, and the same Eric Holder that ran guns to Mexico drug cartels among many other illegal/unethical/unconstitutional activities this current lawless administration commits. So who’s going to prosecute that?

  7. kirkmyers says:

    The U.S. Congress should launch an investigation into the now-obvious data tampering at NOAA NCDC and NASA GISS. Both agencies have been defrauding U.S. taxpayers in their clandestine attempt to propagate the now-collapsing global warming scare. The criminal ringleaders should be convicted and sent to prison.

  8. Matt says:

    The adjustments seem completely backwards. As the heat island effect is taken into account (which should increase with time), temps today should be lowered more than temps in the past. What exactly is the physical explaination for their adjustments?

  9. camjones says:

    This is fraud – so why isn’t anyone being charged over this. If this was done in any other professional field (especially in the financial world), they’ve have their rear end hauled straight to the courts.

  10. Hugh K says:

    If/when the establishment media ever gets off their government-worshipping knees and addresses this issue of fraud, I’m confident the culprit will be made to be some obscure video while some high-level administration official screams; “What difference does it make?” And that will be that.
    The only question remaining is; Does climate change cause public compliance with government ineptitude?

  11. Art Horn says:

    It would be interesting to plot the data points of the raw and adjusted data in a format that connects the dots like the NCDC graph at the top of the story. If the case is going to made to the media it will have to be more than crystal clear, the don’t take science courses in school.

  12. jameshrust says:

    If carbon dioxide had not been a greenhouse gas and there were no natural changing of temperatures in the U. S., we should see a gradual increase in temperature since 1960 due to the Unban Heat Island effect. I have lived in Atlanta, GA for 46 years and seen the population of the metropolitan area go from 1 million to 6 million. Back in 1967 you could drive 13 miles from center of downtown and be in the country. Today you have to drive 35 miles to see any country. I would guess the average temperature has increased several degrees due to UHI effect; especially higher low temperatures at night.
