As the world becomes smaller because of international communications it is not surprising that companies seek new markets to grow their businesses. Some businesses have created global empires that rival the power and influence of governments. Equally unsurprising is the response of anti-capitalist groups fearing global domination by a few companies. Their solution is also global, a global government that will put control of the world’s resources in the hands of big government not big business. The problem for anti-capitalists has been how to mobilise global opposition to big business. They found their answer in the neatly packaged global warming scare. This makes big business into a monster that is so destructive it will mean the end of human beings on earth.
Using ‘scientific data’ to justify global alarmism has been a highly successful ploy, because not many can understand the science but all can understand the danger. The world’s media has taken the alarmist cause to heart, after all who wouldn’t want to stop the destruction of our planet. The ‘problem’ can only be solved by some sort of global superpower with the power to dictate to sovereign governments how they must ‘behave’. In other words a global totalitarian dictatorship led by the United Nations.
The marketing of this ‘global environmental disaster’ has been superb. If you’re going to tell a lie then make it the biggest lie you can think of because big lies are easier to peddle than small ones, especially when ‘scientists’ have ‘proved’ them.
But some scientists were never ‘believers’. Some scientists did what scientists should, they tested and analysed the data rather than the hype and found it wanting. So much so that they are now able to say, what people of the common sense had already suspected, that global warming ‘is the biggest science scandal ever’.
Christopher Booker takes up the latest twist in this global scam, the lie that 2014 was the ‘hottest year ever’.
New data shows that the “vanishing” of polar ice is not the result of runaway global warming
When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.
Two weeks ago, under the headline “How we are being tricked by flawed data on global warming”, I wrote about Paul Homewood, who, on his Notalotofpeopleknowthat blog, had checked the published temperature graphs for three weather stations in Paraguay against the temperatures that had originally been recorded. In each instance, the actual trend of 60 years of data had been dramatically reversed, so that a cooling trend was changed to one that showed a marked warming.
This was only the latest of many examples of a practice long recognised by expert observers around the world – one that raises an ever larger question mark over the entire official surface-temperature record.
Of much more serious significance, however, is the way this wholesale manipulation of the official temperature record – for reasons GHCN and Giss have never plausibly explained – has become the real elephant in the room of the greatest and most costly scare the world has known. This really does begin to look like one of the greatest scientific scandals of all time.
NASA EXPOSED: MASSIVE TEMPERATURE DATA ADJUSTING ALL OVER THE WORLD
So we find that a large chunk of Gavin’s hottest year is centered around a large chunk of South America, where there is little actual data, and where the data that does exist has been adjusted out of all relation to reality.
NASA has been EXPOSED altering temperature data in Paraguay to support the global warming hoax. I say “exposed” because even though the alarmist scientists openly explain how and why these adjustments are sometimes done (Section 2.SM.4 here for example), most people don’t actually read the science. It’s much easier to glean over blogs and editorials that interpret all the complicated information for us, and then spoonfeed the cherry-picked parts we only want need to hear.
