I had a request from a reader to cover Ohio temperatures/data tampering. Afternoon temperatures in Ohio were much higher prior to 60 years ago. After 1955, maximum temperatures plummeted and never recovered.
The percent of hot days in Ohio has dropped off dramatically since the 19th century.
The mean temperature in Ohio also shows cooling.
But NOAA massively tampers with the data to produce warming.
The hockey stick below shows how NOAA cools pre-1990 temperatures and warms post-1990 temperatures, to turn cooling into warming.
Global warming, and in particular US warming, is a fabrication of criminals working at government agencies. It has nothing to do with climate.
Below is the list of stations used in this analysis.
|COSHOCTON WPC PLT||USC00331890|
|MC CONNELLSVILLE LK 7||USC00335041|
|MILLPORT 4 NE||USC00335315|
|PHILO 3 SW||USC00336600|
|WARREN 3 S||USC00338769|
|WOOSTER EXP STATION||USC00339312|
Funny how up until that 90s period the temp seems to have been dropped around a degree across the board and then after they added a degree. Pretty impressive where one adjusts data in the exact opposite ways rather than just adjusting the older data down while keeping the new stuff at the actual readings.
Maybe their mental gymnastics created excuse is the -1 and +1 cancel each other out to give no change.
Who proposes a better job for all these Obama-hookers ?
I assume the larger cities were deleted from this list: Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton, Toledo, and Akron/Canton for a reason?
The list was all of the NOAA USHCN stations. Nothing was deleted.
Thanks so much for doing this, Steve.
The Conan Doyle quote is especially apropos! Who hasn’t felt the tug of temptation when the freshman physics stroboscopic polaroids came out wrong, of there is a furshlugginer data point missing just when you’re trying to fit the data curve and draw of results?
Thanks for all your work on this. I also had to pass this along. Is this the same Steven Mosher you’ve called out on social media? If so, it worked!
One wonders how there could be two of them with the same anti-human deceitful ideology.
Or perhaps a split personality?
Or a ZERO personality. !
Depart at 15:00 today (Sunday) bound for Kutztown, PA. with a load of Monroe shocks and struts for the Advanced Auto Parts DC there. Looks like I may be hitting winter driving conditions in the form of freezing rain or a wintery mix for the first time this season at the higher elevations east of Pittsburgh on the PA Turnpike. Hope PENDOT is on the ball. They usually do a good job along the turnpike. The rain will most likely get heavier as I go further east. Glad I’m not going all the way to the east coast. That storm coming up the coast after crossing Florida looks nasty. As it is I probably will be in heavy rains but the high winds will be further east as I get close to my destination.
I’ve got my winter weight wiper blades on. Checked that my mirror heaters are working. Changed the rubber glad hand seals on the tractor. (Glad hands are the fittings that connect the airlines from the tractor to the trailer. I learned long ago to put new ones in during the fall because if you don’t your sure as hell are going to be changing one when it’s cold and dark and wet and your fingers don’t want to work and the rubber is stiff from the cold.) As always I have my 3 lb. hammer to beat on brake drums if the brakes freeze up. Windshield washer fluid is full at 2 1/2 gallons with two 1 gallon bottles for refilling in the tool box. Before I go I will pick up a can of spray lube from the parts department to keep in the truck. Fifth wheel locking jaws and trailer trolley slides and locking pins tend to get balky in the cold. Don’t need fuel treatment yet. Not cold enough.
As with any job, the devil is in the details. Murphy is sure as hell going to get you if you don’t prepare. And that means I have enough winter clothes in the truck so that if I do totally break down and have no heat I can stay warm.
Say, is there a page where you’ve put all your cool photos so we can choose one more easily?
As forecast I ran into a “wintery mix” along the higher elevations on the PA TP. Saw my first snow of the season but at 36 deg. F it was too warm to stick. Rain and serious gusts of wind were the real hazards. Nearly blown over once and saw one truck that had gone through a guard rail and down a steep wooded incline and another just two miles further on I-81 that was jackknifed in the median. A cold wind is rocking my rig as I sit here in the Bandit Truck Stop off I-81 at exit 45 which is just 1 mi. from where I deliver at 15:00 today.
Wind Advisory in effect until 24:00 tonight. Gusts up to 50 mph. Very dangerous when pulling an empty trailer. Am awake to call dispatch once the 1st shift comes in to advise them not to send me or any of our other drivers further East pulling an empty trailer where the winds because the winds closer to the coast will be worse. Dispatch tends to not look at the weather. But they know that If I forewarn them and something happens I will let the bosses know about it.
