More Detailed Analysis Of The Canberra Times/Gavin Schmidt Iceland Fraud

Last week, Senator Malcolm Roberts of Queensland asked Gavin Schmidt of NASA to explain the large adjustments being made to temperatures around Iceland, which removed the 1940’s warmth.

Gavin responded in the Canberra Times on November 21 with a number of massive lies, like this one where claimed he didn’t know Malcolm Roberts was a senator.


NASA chief slaps down climate sceptic senator Malcolm Roberts: ‘You hold a number of misconceptions’

Gavin has been tweeting Senator Roberts for months, and is perfectly aware that he is senator. It is a senator’s job to ask questions, and Schmidt’s job to answer them.


Gavin’s dishonest attack on Senator Roberts for asking a question, should be grounds enough for his dismissal.

Next up was this claim in the article that the adjustments were 0.7C and made because of a station shift in 1921.

In an email, Truasti Jonsoon, senior meteorologist with a specialty in historical climatology at the Icelandic Meteorological Office, told Senator Roberts that the temperature “adjustments” are “quite sound”.

The original data was not from NASA but the Smithsonian publication “World weather records”, he said.

“During this early period there was a large daytime bias in the temperature data from Iceland as presented in this publication,” which accounted for much of the “discrepancy” at Teigarhorn and less so at Vestmannaeyjar, Mr Jonsoon said.

For the latter station, it was relocated in October 1921 to a higher elevation. “Comparative measurements at both sites have shown that the later location is about 0.7 degrees Celsius colder than the former – this relocation has to be ‘adjusted’ for,” he said. 

This also is a massive lie, as the adjustments are twice as large as the article claimed, and show no indication of having anything to do with a 1921 station shift.

With government climate scientists and their cronies in the press, it is all lies, all the time. This was the lead story in the Canberra Times, which didn’t have the integrity or intelligence to contact Senator Roberts before publishing their wildly fraudulent hit piece.

    That last sentence sums up the rotten state of ‘climate science’ perfectly. No opportunity to speak, to question or respond to a media piece, instead be attacked and have your opinion deliberately suppressed. Their time will not last forever.

  3. Bill Illis says:

    Here are the NCEI/NCDC’s adjustments to Vestmannaeyja (before GISS gets to it).

    The difference in the trends between the two is probably more than 1.4C.

    The top right panel is the annual unadjusted temps. The middle right panel is the NCDC adjusted temperature. And the bottom right panel is the actual adjustments made by year.

      Thanks Bill. What I find odd about the original versus adjusted data is that the adjustments extend well beyond 1921. Why were the high average temperatures around 1940 removed? The minimum around 1980 has been increased as well. Surely, each station in the database must have notes indiciating what adjustments were made and why.

      BTW, In my opinion, NASA should not be in the business of publishing a global temperature series, since it is not an official data product. The is especially true if they simply pass the buck to NOAA when problems are discovered in the tempertature series for individual stations.

      • Bill Illis says:

        We need real statisticians doing this work.

        Not people running climate models and making a living off the grants received for global warming research.

        Why do we never talk about the huge conflict of interest here. If they were on a board, they should actually have to excuse themselves from the deliberations.

        It should be turned over to one of the national statistical agencies and redone of course.

        Frank what they have done is total idiocy…they erased the AMO

        Islands temperature is dictated by the Atlantic current..they are trying to show a record cold…at the same time the AMO was at a record high

    “Why were the high average temperatures around 1940 removed?”

    The promoters of human-caused climate change cannot say “hotter and hotter” and “hottest year evah!” if it was hotter in the 1930’s, so they create a chart that makes the 1930’s look cooler than today. Then they can lie to us and claim it’s hotter today than it’s ever been before.

    Human-caused Climate change promoters had to adjust the available surface temperature records for the entire world, in order to carry out this deception. That’s why they are manipulating the Iceland record. And it looks like they got caught with their pants down doing it.

    1. Overpopulation and overgrazing
    2. Climate change

    They are so stupid they don’t realize they removed the AMO

  7. Dave N says:

    Apparently a simulation is more valid than reality; Schmidt’s delusions still dominate his psyche

  8. Simon Platt says:

    I think when Schmidt says “the only surprise is that [Roberts] is in fact a senator” he’s not pretending not to know, but sneering at the voters of Queensland.

    Which is worse, of course.

  9. GW says:

    Any word regarding how Senator Roberts is going to respond to Gavin Schmidt ? After all, he has the facts in hand, is in a position of (at least some) power, and does not have to “take these insults ‘lying down'”. Or is the senator merely going to “go quietly into that good night” ?
