Hansen Smoking Gun : “it is clear that 1998 did not match the record warmth of 1934”

In 1998, Hansen wrote :

it is clear that 1998 did not match the record warmth of 1934, which occurred during the Dust Bowl era

NASA GISS: Global Temperature Trends (This document was deleted from NASA servers in 2004 or 2005)

His 1998 graph showed 1998 as being the third warmest year – after 1934 and 1921, with 1998 a full degree cooler than 1934. It also showed a strong cooling trend after the 1930s.

Two years later he simply altered the data to make 1998 warmer than 1934 and 1921.

The animation below shows how he magically altered the data to match the theory.

    What’s the odds for this year being the hottest year ever?

    If history of it has anything to do with it???????

    Pretty remarkable — thanks for the dramatic comparison! What happens when a scientist catches “political fever”. By most accounts, Hansen started out as a real scientist. Pretty sad what he’s become. Poster-boy for Noble Cause corruption: http://www.patc.com/weeklyarticles/print/noble-cause-corruption.pdf?

    He does have a constitutional right to lie and to be an ass wipe!

    Manipulation of temperature data seems to be standard operating procedure at both NASA GISS and NOAA NCDC. Not surprisingly, thermometer adjustments (via homogenization, interpolation, and TOBS) always confirm the global warming hypothesis: the past gets cooler and the present gets warmer. Presto: instant “global warming.”

    There is one man-made temperature influence that both agencies downplay or refuse to take into account: the urban heat island (UHI) effect. They also fail to take into consideration the siting of thermometers near artificial heat sources. Why? Because to acknowledge these two influences would force downward adjustments in temperature at many locations.

    Note: Despite all the shenanigans, the temperature data sets (HadCRUT 3 and 4, RSS, UAH and GISS) still show no statistically significant warming for the past 17 to 23 years.

    This is an excellent find.

    Ready made quote to shove down their throats for anytime the AGW cultists either say 1998 was warmest ever, or, when they say there is no data tampering.


  7. Is there a link we can see for the “it is clear that 1998 did not match the record warmth of 1934?”

    I’m sure you must have put it out earlier.

    This is why if justice is to be done that Hansen needs to spend the rest of his short life behind bars.

    Hansen is still “At it”

    Public lecture: Itinerant Farming to White House Arrests: a scientist’s view
    of the climate crisis

    The unfolding human-made climate crisis seems almost surrealistic from a
    scientific perspective. As knowledge of a climate emergency improves,
    policies change in ways that exacerbate rather than mitigate the situation.
    The tragedy is that actions needed to stabilise climate, rather than being
    painful to society, would have multiple benefits, including stronger
    economies, more good jobs, and more equitable opportunities for individuals.

    If our governments continue to fail to advance effective policy, thus
    causing continued extraction of every fossil fuel that can be found, today’s
    children, future generations, and nature will bear the consequences through
    no fault of their own.

    A variety of options for making governments do their job will be discussed.

    I think “surreal” is a very apt description!
