Ministry Of Truth Rewrites Iceland

“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”

― George Orwell, 1984

The settled science animations below show how NASA has altered Icelandic temperatures since last year.

    Just by eyeballing the graphs, it appears that Reykjavik is now much closer to the unadjusted numbers compared to the other cities presented here. Perhaps this is because NOAA knows the capital of Iceland will be under far more scrutiny whereas the other minor locations may slip past climate watchdogs?

    Where’s Griff to explain this one away?

    Are the years backwards?

    Someone’s going to get the sack for that one. The eejot hit + rather than – on the annual past temp adjustments.

    These changes are interesting. As noted by feathers above, the 2018 Reykjavik graph looks closer to the original data than the the 2017 version. This appears true for Teigarhorn as well, whereas it is not the case for Vestmannaeyja.

    Hmmnn. Is NOAA trying to make them closer to the truth because the Arctic sea ice decline story is not panning out? That way there would be less serious discrepancy between their adjusted temperatures and the sea ice situation. Judging by present thick ice extent (again demonstrated by this blog), it may be that September ice extent will be a large increase over previous years.

    Or, are they finally under pressure to produce the truth under the Trump administration?

    Very interesting.

    As far as I know, is Iceland the only country, apart from the USA, of which the detailed, original historic temperature data are available online to all interested.

    Therefore, it was too easy to show the hankypankying going on. Tony is doing this all the time here.

    (myself, I wrote a small analysis about the very simple “homogenisaton” for Stykkisholmur, going on from the very beginning of GHCN v1 in 1992/93 … online here )

    As long as we don’t have easy access to the original data of the rest of the world, re-changing these Icelandic data back to the originals has – logically – no effect on the global data, but it does avoid some questions.
