New York Times Getting Bolder With Their Climate Lies

Early in life I had noticed that no event is ever correctly reported in a newspaper.

  • George Orwell

In today’s New York Times today, they say global warming was settled science thirty years ago, the world was ready to act, and that we could have saved the planet.

Losing Earth: The Decade We Almost Stopped Climate Change – The New York Times

Even for the New York Times, this is a spectacular amount of lies packed into one article.  The lead story on the front page of the New York Times on January 26, 1989 was “U.S. Data Since 1895 Fail To Show Warming Trend”

After examining climate data extending back nearly 100 years, a team of Government scientists has concluded that there has been no significant change in average temperatures or rainfall in the United States over that entire period.

U.S. Data Since 1895 Fail To Show Warming Trend –

Also that year, NOAA said most global warming occurred before 1919, Earth cooled from 1921 to 1979, and there is “considerable uncertainty among scientific experts

Analysis of warming since 1881 shows most of the increase in global temperature happened before 1919 — before the more re-cent sharp rise in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. said Thomas Karl, of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C.

While global climate warmed overall since 1881, it actually cooled from 1921 to 1979, Karl said.

“In spite of all the well-publicized concern about global warming, you must understand that there is still considerable uncertainty among scientific experts about a number of critical factors which determine global warming,” NOAA administrator John Knauss said in a statement issued for the geophysics meeting.

Ten years earlier the New York Times said there is no end in sight to the thirty year cooling trend.

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.

Had NASA’s James Hansen been correct 30 years ago, lower Manhattan would be underwater now, and we wouldn’t have to be seeing the present stream of misinformation and lies coming from the fake news New York Times.

Stormy weather – Global warming –

And the Arctic would be ice-free now.

It is fascinating how bold the New York Times is becoming about lying to the public however. Yet there is nothing new about this practice.


It is up to the Independent Press (i.e. bloggers) to defend against climate cheats and liars – like the New York Times.

January, 1907.



It is wrong to mutilate or suppress the record of an observation of a phenomenon of nature, but it is also wrong to make a bad use of the record. In fact, it is the misuse of meteorological data, not the observing or publishing, that constitutes a crime against the community. Observation and careful research are to be encouraged as useful. Misrepresentations are to be avoided as harmful.

The “Independent Press” as the “Voice of the People” should be not only “Vox Populi” but “Vox Dei “, repressing all cheats and hoaxes, defending the truth and the best interests of the whole nation as against the self-interest of a few.

  1. NOAA says:

    Simple, we’ll just go back and adjust the temps warmer to show the warming trend we have imagined.

  2. GCsquared says:

    “Thirty Years Ago We Had a Chance to Save the Planet”
    Now that we know we’ve irretrievably lost the battle with APGW, can we just forget about it and get on with life?

    • John of Cloverdale, WA, Australia says:

      Agreed! But in Australia, the Federal Government and the major opposition party want to wreck our economy to pay lip service to this “lost cause”.
      Oh, woe is us!
      Ironically speaking, the politicians are demonising coal-fired power stations while at the same time coal is our number 1 export for others to burn. Make sense of that!

  3. gregole says:

    Yes, the media blitz we are seeing right now is the last death rattle of this horrible fraud. No one is listening to their nonsense. Anyhow, we should’ve “acted” 30 years ago; so now it’s too late anyhow. Nothing left to do but sit back, watch the Arctic vaporize, the seas boil away, and watch the tipping points tip.

    Oh, the Arctic ice is doing just fine; plenty of ice?
    Oceans aren’t boiling away?
    Tipping points? Huh?

    Never mind.

    NYT can publish all the nonsense they want. No one cares.

    • Thom says:

      The International Socialist Party, formerly known as the Democratic Party, are sitting back waiting for their chance to take over again and institute all the policies that will “save us all.” I’m afraid that this new America, controlled by media propaganda and social media nonsense, will soon be the majority and the end of the republic as we know it is in the cards. Saying that no one cares may be a bit too optimistic. Tell the new generations that their phones are causing global warming and then their selfish backsides won’t care.

  4. F. M. George says:

    Such a paradox…the New York Times relying on people to read their articles and believe what they see, yet also relying on those same people to not remember what they might have read – in the same paper – days, months, weeks, years ago. Do they believe all people are mind numb robots, or just those whom share their political point of view?

    When Climate discussions turn political, its not climate science at all.


  5. Thom says:

    The article starts with an Orwell quote. How about another prescient one:

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

  6. ScienceABC123 says:

    To quote a famous Democrat from the 1990’s – “The truth is not important. It’s what you say when that counts.”

    • garyh845 says:

      To quote a famous [idiot] Democrat from today: Jerry Brown: Fire-Fueling Heat Worst ‘Since Civilization Emerged 10,000 Years Ago’

  7. Edward Sager says:

    Any credible news organization would be red-faced, but the NYT is neither.

  8. Scott says:

    Someone should tweet this to Tucker Carlson. I don’t have a Twitter account.

  9. buster says:

    The only thing their article will probably do, is cause more and more people to roll their eyes when the hear “The New York Times”.


    Global Warming is Dead

    The argument about global warming has morphed into climate change. This
    subtle shift was necessary because the warming as evidenced by satellite
    measurements has stopped since 1998, even while CO2 concentrations have
    continued to increase. It has become increasingly obvious CO2 is not
    driving the warming, the climate, or anything else.

    The hysteria about melting ice caps, sea level rise, stronger storms,
    droughts, floods, forest fires, etc., has not materialized:
    * ice continues to accumulate at record levels in the Antarctic wherein
    lies 90% of the world’s ice inventory. Meanwhile, the Arctic Ice Cap
    has survived decades of predictions of its demise.
    * sea level rise according to Nils-Axil Morner, the world’s leading
    authority on sea level change, has not changed at all.
    * annual accumulated cyclonic energy is at historical lows, as are the
    overall number and strength of hurricanes and tornadoes.
    * Droughts and floods continue their march in tune with oceanic
    oscillations, such as, La Ninas and the Indian Ocean Dipole.
    * Forest fire activity remains at the mercy of lightning strikes,
    underbrush stockpiles and interference with nature by humans.

    Climate Change has no Evidence

    There is not one piece of empirical evidence linking human activities to
    the climate – NOT ONE. The only arguments for climate change are
    anecdotes, computer projections, Hockey Sticks, and consensus.
    * Anecdotes are short, obscure historical or biographical accounts.
    Anecdotes cannot be traced to one another or anything else. Anecdotes
    are not proof.
    * Computer projections are Ludic fallacies based on dubious initial
    conditions. The computer projections have failed, because their only
    input is greenhouse gases. Computer projections are not proof.
    * Hockey Sticks are the cobbling together of two unrelated proxy data
    sets. These FrankenGraphs, which would have received an “F” in JHS
    science class 50 years ago, are incredibly embraced by many scientists
    today. Hockey Sticks are artificial fabrications, not proof.
    * Consensus is an opinion or position reached by a group as a whole.
    Millennia and centuries ago the consensus believed the Earth was the
    center of the Universe and Solar System. Consensus is not proof.

    To the contrary, there is abundant evidence proving the climate has
    changed often and sometimes violently, all without any human influence.

    The Historical Temperature Record

    For the last 600,000,000 years temperatures have hovered around 12C
    about 14% of the time, around 22C about 50% of the time, and somewhere
    in between 36% of the time. Right now we are at 14.5C, about 25% above
    the bottom of the historical range. (Ref: Dr. Christopher R. Scotese‘s
    PALEOMAP Project at We are no
    where near any temperature tipping point.

    The 0.4C rise in temperature since the Industrial Revolution (IR) pales
    in comparison to the 1.6C increase of the Medieval Warming Period (WP),
    the 2.5C increase of the Roman WP, and the 3.2C increase of the Minoan
    WP using the IR as a baseline. The average temperature has been
    declining for the last 6,000 years. (Alley, R.B. 2000, The Younger
    Dryas cold interval as viewed from central Greenland, Quaternary Science
    Reviews, 19:213-226.) We are at the very end of the present 10,500 year
    old Interglacial WP. After this comes about 90,000 years of snow, ice,
    advancing glaciers and incredible loss of life. Enjoy the warmth while
    you can.

    The Recent Temperature Record

    The temperature data for the last 100 years has been twisted and
    contorted by scientists to comply with the global warming agenda. Under
    the guise of ‘homogenizing’ data sets, NOAA has chopped off the cooler
    temperatures of the late 1800s, thus making trends afterwards look
    warmer. Also, the percentage of fake temperature measurement stations
    since 1993 has increased from 5% to 43%, over an 800% increase. A new
    fake station was created in Africa which helped conclude that 2016 was
    the warmest year ever. This fake science from fake data has created an
    ever-increasing temperature record, when the satellite data says since
    1998 there has been no warming at all.

    The Historical CO2 Record

    About 550,000,000 years ago CO2 was 7,000 ppm and has wound it‘s way
    down to where it is today, near it’s historic low (Berner, R.A. and Z.
    Kothavala, 2001. GEOCARB III: A Revised Model of Atmospheric CO2 over
    Phanerozoic Time, American Journal of Science, v.301, pp.182-204,
    February 2001.) Below 100 ppm photosynthesis ceases. We are very close
    to the tipping point of Earth turning into a lifeless snowball with too
    little CO2 for plants to reproduce. On the other hand, plants thrive in
    nurseries kept at CO2 concentrations of 1,000 ppm. Thanks to recent CO2
    increases, vegetation has increased 11% in arid areas of the world.

    The Recent CO2 Record

    The famous Mauna Loa CO2 measurements began in 1958, coincidentally at a
    historic low CO2 level of 315 ppm. In 1942 and again in 1822 CO2 was
    440 ppm, 40 ppm higher than today. (Ernst-Georg Beck, 180 Years of
    Atmospheric CO2 Gas Analysis By Chemical Methods, Energy & Environment,
    Volume 18 No. 2, 2007, Fig. 2).

    For the last 1400 years there have been 6 distinctive cycles of CO2
    concentration as registered in plant leaf stomata proxy data. Each
    cycle is about 230 years in duration with a 300 ppm minimum and 400 ppm
    maximum. As of 2016 400 ppm was reached, the top of the cycle. If
    history repeats, expect this deVries cycle to reverse and produce lower
    CO2 readings over the next 115 or so years.

    To say we are nearing runaway, irreversible global warming due to recent
    paltry CO2 increases is ludicrous.

    Temperatures and Solar Irradiance

    There have been three global cooling and three global warming periods
    within the last 250 years. These periods all march to the tune of
    changing solar irradiance, not CO2 concentrations. (Douglas V. Hoyt and
    Kenneth H. Schatten, A Discussion of Plausible Solar Irradiance
    Variations, 1700-1992, Journal of Geophysical Research, Vol. 98, No.
    All, Pages 18,895-18,906, November 1, 1993). Isn’t the correlation
    obvious? It’s the Sun, not CO2.

    Greenhouse Gas Effect (GGE)

    Only 3.27% of all CO2 generated comes from man, the other 96.73% comes
    from nature. Only 0.001% of water vapor comes from man; the other
    99.999% comes from nature. Water vapor by a factor of 26 has more of a
    spectral absorption bandwidth or GGE than does CO2. After adding the
    contributions of methane, nitrous oxide, and CFCs it turns out only
    0.28% of the GGE comes from man, the other 99.72% comes from nature. If
    man ceased to exist, the reduction in the GGE would be one part out of
    357, or barely noticeable.

    And one last thing: According to ice core records, the CO2 increases
    occur about 800 years AFTER the temperature increases. That is, CO2
    doesn’t cause rising temperatures, rising water temperatures cause CO2
    to gas out of solution from the world’s oceans into the atmosphere. CO2
    is not a driver of climate. CO2 is a passenger.
