Northern Hemisphere Temperature Fraud From Gavin Schmidt

Thirty-nine years ago today, experts reported a northern hemisphere cooling trend of 0.1C to 0.2C per decade from 1950 to 1975.

The report, prepared by German, Japanese and American specialists, appears in the Dec. 15 issue of Nature, the British journal. The findings indicate that from 1950 to 1975 the cooling, per decade, of most climate indexes in the Northern Hemisphere was from 0.1 to 0.2 degrees Celsius, roughly 0.2 to 0.4 degrees Fahrenheit.

NASA used to show this cooling trend, but has now made it almost entirely disappear.


The winter of 1978 was the coldest on record in the US, yet this date in 1978 was much warmer than today’s temperatures.

    It is 25F right now in mid North Carolina. A far cry from 50F as shown for Jan 5th 1978. And that was a bloody cold winter.

      OH Joy, the updated forecast is for 1F (–17C) for Sunday. Saturday will be 14F and Monday 12F

      There are going to be a lot of frozen pipes here in NC.

      Code is water pipes 12 inches underground and “waste
      and soil piping leaving the building shall have a minimum cover of 3 inches. “

      A lot of farmers run water piping only 3 to 6 inches under ground. (I insisted on a full three feet.)

    Outstanding post. The NY Times article from this day in 1978 reporting on the “International Team of Specialists” is the final nail in the coffin of the idea that global cooling didn’t predominate climate thinking in the ’70s. Combine that with all the major news magazine covers on the ice age threat (Time, Newsweek etc) and this is a done deal.

    In 1971 John Holdren, now the USA’s head warmist (Obama’s “Science” Czar) said:

    “A final push in the cooling direction comes from man-made changes in the direct reflectivity of the earth’s surface (albedo) through urbanization [and etc]… The effects of a new ice age [may include] a sudden outward slumping in the Antarctic ice cap, induced by added weight, [which] could generate a tidal wave of proportions unprecedented in recorded history.” -John Holdren, 1971

    By 1986 Holdren was saying this:
    “A billion people could die from global warming by 2020.”

    Yet in 2014 Holdren seemed confused about which direction the temperatures of the earth were going. Holdren had become a global warmcoldist:

    “The kind of extreme cold being experienced by much of the United States as we speak is a pattern we can expect to see with increasing frequency as global warming continues.” -John Holdren, 2014

    I just cleared about 30 cm of snow at -20C from my driveway and I’m not too worried about 1C of warming that is well within measurement error.

    Forecast is similar to one in January 1976, with less snow forecast today compared to that one. Official temperature is 42F/6C. It is cloudy and not particularly windy at the moment. A coastal low is expected to form on the remains of a cold front that is approaching us currently. That’s the usual setup for snow here. A previous system pulls down cold air. A secondary system forms or tracks down to the Gulf, along its northern coast then turns north/northeastward heading up the coast (Hi NC in another 24 hours). If strong enough, a blizzard may develop as it heads northeastward along the coast. (That’s what the blizzard of March 1993 was, and what most nor’easters are.) The Gulf Coast sees these systems every winter. Some are warmer or weaker and thus don’t give a big snow. Typical timing has these roughly every week from late December through May, with the typical year seeing the tracks move northward in April, though they may still happen in late May (the cold snap that we had the week before Memorial Day, 1974).

    The local hazardous weather outlook has 2 to 3 inches of accumulated mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain. Ugh, for freezing rain here (it is hilly to low mountainous) is a killer. [No, it is not economical for this area to over-prepare for icy weather. If/when it happens more regularly, we will do it. Whether people learn how to drive in it, generally, is a different story.]
