NOAA’s temperature control knob for the past, the present, and maybe the future – July 1936 now hottest month again

“You can’t get any clearer proof of NOAA adjusting past temperatures.”

Watts Up With That?

NOAA_Warm-cool_knobTwo years ago during the scorching summer of 2012, July 1936 lost its place on the leaderboard and July 2012 became the hottest month on record in the United States. Now, as if by magic, and according to NOAA’s own data, July 1936 is now the hottest month on record again. The past, present, and future all seems to be “adjustable” in NOAA’s world. See the examples below.

Josh has been busy again and writes at Bishop Hill with a new cartoon:

The temperature adjustments story has been brewing for weeks principally due to the many posts at ‘RealScience’ but taken up by others, for example, Paul Homewood, see here and here. Judith Curry has a great post about it here, as does Anthony here.

Antarctica sets new record for sea ice area

Are there only ‘computer models’ for things that ‘melt’ and things that ‘heat up’? Or do climate experts have a model that correctly predicted record Antarctic sea ice growth?

Watts Up With That?

byHarold Ambler

The sea ice surrounding Antarctica, which, as I reported in my book, has been steadily increasing throughout the period of satellite measurement that began in 1979, has hit a new all-time record high for areal coverage.

The new record anomaly for Southern Hemisphere sea ice, the ice encircling the southernmost continent, is 2.074 million square kilometers and was posted for the first time by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s The Cryosphere Today early Sunday morning.

June 27 Global Sea Ice Area Fourth Highest On Record – Highest Since 1996

Real Science

Nobel Laureate Albert Arnold Gore Jr. said there was a 75% chance the Arctic would be ice free this summer, but in fact we have seen quite the opposite.

The amount of sea ice on Earth is 4th highest on record for the date, and the highest since 1996.
