More On The Mind-Blowing Fraud From The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Earlier today I showed how the claims in this article were complete nonsense for the USHCN station in Milwaukee.

August on track to be one of warmest

The USHCN station in  Milwaukee doesn’t have a very long record, but the station at Font du Lac 50 miles away does.

August at Font du lac was 47th warmest since 1895, not 4th warmest. Many summers were much hotter than this one.

Font du Lac had no days above 90 degrees, compared to eighteen days above 90 in 1937. The frequency of 90 degree days at Font du Lac has plummeted to record lows. Ninety degree days used to be quite common.

Hottest temperatures have also plummeted, and are near record lows now.

August maximum temperatures in Wisconsin are plummeting over the past 90 years. This August was almost exactly average in Wisconsin.

This summer in Wisconsin was not hot. The dishonesty of the press is off scale however.

    This guy “Adapt 2030” does videos claiming a coming more extreme cold period for next several decades. One of his latest videos shows that 2017 will be the beginning of a drop-off in global temps until 2024, then not really warming back until after solar cycle 26. If so, then this next year could be the beginning of a new cold period.

    He says “Grand Solar Minimum Cooling commencing Globally in a paper by Zharkova, Shepherd, Popova and Zharkov, then the IPCC Tried to Suppress Research by asking the Royal Astronomical Society to remove the findings through the groups of scientific organizations associated with the IPCC.”

    Just curious what others thought about this.

    • Rud Istvan says:

      The Zharkova paper has been discredited by a recent paper. It incorrectly hindcasts solar, so cannot forecast solar correctly.

    • G. says:

      There’s plenty of robust papers suggesting the Sun is entering a Grand Minimum, Zharkova’s isn’t one of them. As it’s been pointed out, their model fails to hindcast known variability in solar activity, as determined by direct and indirect proxie. Therefore, unlikely to successfully predict future activity.

    I follow David’s work on Adapt 2030 with his videos on You Tube. He frequently discusses crop losses that have started and the extreme weather events that have been occurring, particularly the cold and snow that has been in unusual locations out of season. I find it very interesting, and I’m a believer in the solar minimum approaching.

    Here are the Climate at a Glance links for South East Wisconsin:
    South Eastern Wisconsin August MAXIMUM Temperature
    South Eastern Wisconsin August MINIMUM Temperature
    South Eastern Wisconsin August PRECIPITATION

    Our friends on the left scream hotter than ever and drought drought drought. And the opposite is true. Day time highs are going down and we’re getting more rain. The result is the daily minimums are increasing.

    • tonyheller says:

      That graph is BS. NOAA is massively adjusting August temperatures upwards.

      • Jason Calley says:

        Hey Tony! “NOAA is massively adjusting August temperatures ”

        I am not even sure that “massive” does it justice! How can anybody look at a forty year time series like that and take it seriously? The period from 1976 to 2016 was not a time of stone tools and pointed sticks. If the state data from 2002 is so bad that it needs a plus 2.1C “adjustment”, how do they justify that in 2003 things were accurate?

        I can understand how specific sites with specific special circumstances may need adjustments. But those adjustments need to be based on actual, quantifiable, site conditions, changes, or incidences. In this case we are expected to believe that NOAA has access to information of errors so universal that the entire state record has been corrupted, and corrupted to such an extent that the average reading (not just single sites) is wrong by full degrees. Any objective observer should be able to look at this chart of NOAA “adjustments” and realize that something is very, very, wrong!

        Shame on them, shame on them, shame on them. They are not scientists!

        • RAH says:

          “Shame on them, shame on them, shame on them. They are not scientists!”

          They are nothing more than political functionaries.

      • Steve Case says:

        You know, the data you use to generate the original stuff must really be buried somewhere. I think I asked a long time ago where you find it, and I ran up against not having the ‘puter skills to down load it. But if you’d would be so kind as to provide some links that would be great.

        So anyway here’s my overlay of what you just said. and the past is certainly lowered on the Climate at a Glance version. Somehow I thought their Highs and Lows were original and they just dinked with the averages. Dealing with liars is always difficult.

    Fond du Lac is way north, but Racine just a few miles south of Milwaukee, looks like this:

  5. Steve Case says:

    What it is that is going on in this world, is left wing politics is pulling a colossal misdirection and bait and switch game. The misdirection is pretending that the average temperatures really mean something. Some wag said recently, “The average world temperature statistic is about as meaningful as the average world telephone number.” The bait and switch part of it is to transfer the increase in low temperatures to imply that it is the high temperatures are going up. In essence, they are liars on that point, and our host hammers that home on a daily basis.

    Since this little thread is about Wisconsin temperatures the graph (below) is the Min and Max temps for South East WI since 1900. You can probably do this for most stations in the U.S. if not the world. Here’s a U.S. map

    showing how far back in time high temperatures have been declining state by state, a few go back to the 19th century.

    Durn, I forgot to say the above graph is for August

  7. Andy DC says:

    The cheating has become more and more blatant and desperate as the election approaches. Unfortunately, these cheaters have the media on their side and a lot of people have bought into their BS.

    The alarmists are just itching for a devastating hurricane. Sandy might have influenced the last election, let’s hope there is not anything like that during this hurricane season!

  8. Bob Grise says:

    I live near St. Cloud, MN, away from the large urban heat island. St. Cloud’s July was a smidge below average and our August is running 1.5 degrees above average. We are 300 miles west of Fond Du Lac, WI and 150 miles north. Our records go back to the late 1800s and I just skimmed the record and it looks like 46 Augusts in St. Cloud were warmer than 2016, with 7 and a half hours to go. Where is the crisis? Just the opposite, rainfall is above average and our crops look great. Make note that our climate record matches, (confirms) with Fon Du Lac, 47th warmest. http://web.stcloudstate.edu/raweisman/climate/tempmonth.html

    Tony — do you know the precise location of the USHCN station in Milwaukee? The city is on Lake Michigan — for years the official temperature was measured downtown, blocks from the lake. Later the official temperature was measured at Mitchell Field airport. If the yellow stick pin accurately describes current location then the farther West you go the less the lake influences temperature. This Milwaukee Journal article provides a historical perspective. http://archive.jsonline.com/greensheet/at-first-milwaukees-temperature-was-taken-downtown-b99576541z1-328441921.html — guess that means the farther from the lake, the warmer the temps +++ a reason why temps seem to have gone up over time?

    Same crap was stated for Detroit as well, in the Detroit News. “Hottest Summer on record” head line, but the article refers to average temp.
