Government study shows no global warming

From a New York Times article:

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.

While the nation’s weather in individual years or even for periods of years has been hotter or cooler and drier or wetter than in other periods, the new study shows that over the last century there has been no trend in one direction or another.

The study, made by scientists for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was published in the current issue of Geophysical Research Letters. It is based on temperature and precipitation readings taken at weather stations around the country from 1895 to 1987.

That study took place before warmists took over the government and stacked all of the scientific agencies with global warming True Believers whose goal is to do missionary work spreading belief and alarm over global warming and not to do real science. (That takeover seems to coincide with Al Gore become Vice President in 1993.) Hopefully Donald Trump will fire all of the warmists. Once you have the government paying for real scientists with the freedom to do real research, there will no longer be a “consensus” of global warming.

  1. Between 1987 and 2017 there has been a very significant warming trend.

    • No there hasn’t. That’s why warmists stopped saying “warming” and started saying “climate change.”

    • The earth has warmed significantly since the last ice age ended 10,000 years ago. But over the last 20 years? Not so much. What’s more, I don’t care if the earth’s temperature increases a couple of degrees over the next century. Maybe it will be better for life on earth. Is it not better now than when half the earth’s surface was covered by glaciers a mile thick?

      I ❤ Global Warming

  2. Nice summary. Now I’d like to know how this study came to be buried since 1987.

  3. Love your blog, Lion, but please don’t fall into the very failure modes you’re willing to call others on. Your post’s title completely misrepresents the article itself, whose very first graph says:

    “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.” [emphasis added]

    As Hansen himself is quoted in the article:

    “Dr. Hansen of NASA said today that he had ‘no quarrel’ with the findings in the new study. He noted that the United States covered only 1.5 percent of Earth. ‘If you have only one degree warming on a global average, how much do you get at random’ when taking measurements in such a relatively small area, he asked rhetorically.

    “‘We are just arguing now about whether the global warming effect is large enough to see,’ he added. ‘It is not surprising we are not seeing it in a region that covers only 1.5 percent of the globe.'”

    Please make the argument that Global Warming is unproven, or a hoax, but hold yourself to the same standard of honest presentation that you seek to hold others.

  4. The Global Warming alarmists get all alarmed over a 1 to 2 degree temperature change over 100 years or more. But wouldn’t thermometers from 100 years ago, heck, even 50 years ago, easily have a margin of error of 1 or 2 or more degrees? I don’t think its a fair comparison. Perhaps, scientists should examine temperatures going back only, say, 20 years. That wouldn’t be a long enough period to be useful today, but data back 20 years and going forward would be useful to scientists 100 years from now.

  5. It would be interesting to see if federal funding, mentions in the media, etc. all picked up dramatically during his time as VP
