1960 : Fourteen Degrees Arctic Warming

“Since 1910, for instance, the mean winter temperature in Spitzbergen is up 14 degrees F. “If this goes on,” Mr. Murphy points out, “the Arctic Ocean will be open the year round” before the close of the twentieth century.”

This warming prior to 1960 didn’t suit NASA’s agenda, so they made it disappear.

    Going back to about that time Stephen Schneider (plus, he thanked James Hansen for his help) wrote a paper (1971) called: Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide and Aerosols: Effects of Large Increases on Global Climate https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/science.173.3992.138

    This is the same Stephen Schneider who in 1988 as a lead IPCC author said: “We have to offer up scary scenarios [about global warming] … each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective and being honest.”

    So in 1971 Schneider says in that paper’s abstract: “It is found that, although the addition of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere does increase the surface temperature, the rate of temperature increase diminishes with increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. For aerosols, however, the net effect of increase in density is to reduce the surface temperature of Earth… If sustained [high aerosol emissions] over a period of several years, such a temperature decrease over the whole globe is believed to be sufficient to trigger an ice age.

    So, Hansen, Holdren, and “scary scenarios” Schneider were all on board with the whole ice age scare, and were downplaying the CO2 threat. Indeed, 10 years later in 1981 he wrote: “The major difficulty in accepting this [greenhouse] theory has been the absence of observed warming coincident with the historic CO2 increase. In fact, the temperature in the Northern Hemisphere decreased by about 0.5° between 1940 and 1970.”

    The above quote and a excellent article on NASA’s data manipulation is found here: https://notrickszone.com/2017/01/16/massive-data-tampering-uncovered-at-nasa-warmth-cooling-disappears-due-to-incompatibility-with-models/

    By the mid-eighties they had ALL switched to pushing the global warming bs. What had changed? Not much. Regardless, the solution to global cooling was to reduce factory output and automotive traffic. The solution to global warming? Reduce factory output and automotive traffic.

    • The major difficulty in accepting the greenhouse effect theory is the First Law of Thermodynamics, which it contravenes. It is on a par with crank proposals for perpetual motion machines.

    • Graeme No.3 says:

      Schneider was a believer in Global Cooling in 1978 and a believer in Global Warming in 1981.

      And if the World has warmed (due to evil man-made CO2) by 1.5℃ since 1855 and it was already up by 1.66℃ by the 100 years to 1960, we haven’t had any warming since 1960 or there must have been a lot of (unnoticed) warming between 1850 and 1855.

    ‘Mr. Murphy points out, “the Arctic Ocean will be open the year round” before the close of the twentieth century.”’

    Uhhh . . . what would be bad about the Arctic Ocean being open the year round? Why would we want it closed? Supply ships trapped in ice is a good thing?

  3. Hi, I’m looking for Reykjavik temperature and noted the animated gif spans over two equal-range series, while the datasets you link are different: the shorter one starts in 1940 and the longer in 1900. Is there some reason for that? Can you link the no-warming
    (tampered) numerical series from 1900? Thank you. Franco

      NASA is constantly altering both axes of the data. I have saved more than a dozen different versions of the same NASA graph.
