Nick Stokes : Busted

Nick Stokes, like all climate alarmists, spews mindless gibberish without doing any fact checking.

The NCAR graph is not from Newsweek, 1975. It was widely published in 1974. Here are a few examples. There are lots more out there.

The 1974 NCAR graph was completely consistent with what Steven Schneider and Walter Orr Roberts of NCAR were saying at the time. They were pushing global cooling – which was going to kill us all.

I will deal with Nick’s other idiotic claim in a different post.

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. The first GISS plot is not the usual land/ocean data; it’s a little used Met Stations only

The amount of misinformation in that claim is breathtaking.  Nobody attempted to do land/ocean plots in 1974, because they weren’t willing to make up fake temperature data like modern climate fraudsters. GISS graphs were land only until about 2003.

The issue Ray alludes to is that in addition to the issue
of many more drifters providing measurements over the last
5-10 years, the measurements are coming in from places where
we didn’t have much ship data in the past. For much of the SH between 40 and 60S the normals are mostly made up as there is very little ship data there.
