In this post I take down the second part of Nick Stokes idiotic claim :
Steven Goddard produces these plots, and they seem to circulate endlessly, with no attempt at fact-checking, or even sourcing. I try, but it’s wearing.
My source code has been out there for years. Nick has no excuse for his ignorance.
I just added it to UNHIDING THE DECLINE, to make it really easy for even the most clueless climate alarmist. (It is very wearing for me to have to deal with these clowns, who spread the same misinformation year after year.)
Download UNHIDING from here. Click on the DOWNLOAD ALL button.
It will be downloaded as a very large zip file. The reason it is so large is because I have included the entire US daily temperature database. I did this is because Windows users might have a difficult time extracting the data from NOAA. I also have included everything you need to get the data directly from NOAA.
Unzip the file, and enter the UNHIDING directory. Unzip the US.zip file.
Then move the extracted US.txt file into the UNHIDING directory.
Enter the UNHIDING directory using a windows command prompt window or Linux/Mac terminal. Windows users can do this by navigating to the UNHIDING directory in Windows Explorer and typing cmd in the address bar.
That will bring up a command prompt window.
First time Linux/Mac users will need to run these commands. Windows users will not need to run them.
python3 -m pip install matplotlib
python3 -m pip uninstall numpy
python3 -m pip install numpy==1.12.1
The plot was generated using the command :
python3 ghcn.py US.txt first_year=1917 last_year=2016 USHCN
or for Windows users :
.\ghcn.exe US.txt first_year=1917 last_year=2016 USHCN
It takes a long time to run, and will appear like nothing is happening. Be patient. Your computer is processing several versions of the entire US daily and month temperature data sets.
Eventually a window will pop up like this. Select “CO2 “in the left column, and “USHCN FINAL MINUS RAW TAVG” in the right column. This will show how NOAA is tampering with the temperature data to precisely match their fake global warming theory.
The source code is ghcn.py. Nick can see exactly how the calculations are done. They are a simple numerical average of the USHCN monthly final minus the numerical average of the monthly raw temperatures, per year. Math doesn’t get any simpler than that. A third grader should be able to understand.
Linux/Mac users can get the NOAA daily temperature data by entering the GHCN directory and typing ./get.bash
Them move GHCN/ghcnd_hcn/US.txt into the UNHIDING directory.
Linux/Mac users can get the the NOAA monthly temperature data by entering the USHCN directory and typing ./get.bash
Then move US_final.tmax.txt US_raw.tmax.txt US_final.tavg.txt and US_raw.tavg.txt from the USHCN/ushcn.v2.5.5.[$DATE] directory into the UNHIDING directory.
Nick has no excuses for his ignorance or his ongoing attempts to misinform the public. Next time he or Mosher claim my work is not reproducible, tell them that they would need at least third grade math skills to accomplish that.
NOAA is precisely tampering with temperature data to match CO2 theory. Quite likely the most crooked, dishonest, corrupt science ever done.
In my next post I will take down Nick’s third idiotic claim :
The first GISS plot is not the usual land/ocean data; it’s a little used Met Stations only
