By removing the 18+ year global warming “pause” (the giant elephant in the AGW room), the trashing of climate science and perhaps all ‘science’ is finally complete. All in the name of ideology, reputations and political agenda.
To not adjust the inputs of overheated computer models to match observed data, but rather adjust decades of observed, real-world data to match the computer models, is all that needs to be ‘observed’ to see the in-your-face-fraud these government scientists are undertaking.
Great post Tony, cheers ….
In 1769, Joseph Priestley warned that scientists overly attached to a favorite hypothesis would not hesitate to “warp the whole course of nature.
There was never any question about the existence of the Medieval Warm Period. This graph was in the 1990 IPCC Report
Scientists have known about the MWP for centuries.
In the Swiss Alps the ice line has invaded summits formerly covered with magnificent forests, of which the massive trunks and sturdy roots are still found in situ.
Iceland and Eastern Greenland have become much colder since the fourteenth century; for in the former large trees have ceased to grow, while on the opposite shores of the latter a great number of valleys, once inhabited, are now completely inaccessible, owing to the intrusion of glaciers.

Tom Karl rounded on me and hissed, “How do you expect to be taken seriously?”
“I don’t,” I said. “I expect the data to be taken seriously.”
Spot-on Lord Monckton! And the data is not being taken seriously by the likes of global warming activist agencies; NOAA, NCDC … and NASA who are butchering and torturing aka ‘homogenising’ data to fit the ‘global warming’ narrative.
Meanwhile unadjusted, un-homogenised raw satellite data (RSS, UAH), that criss-cross every inch of the globe 24/7, show NO WARMING in over 18 years, and slight cooling this century…
Who really are the real (data) ‘deniers’ ? ….

Tom Karl’s paper (Karl et al. 2015) purporting to abolish the global-warming pause, recently published in Science, may be partly my fault.I first ran across the National Climatic Data Center’s (NCDC) accident-prone director in a Congressional hearing room in about 2009, when I was the witness for the Republicans, Karl for the Democrats.
I showed the energy and environment committee a graph showing the mean of the temperature anomalies from the three terrestrial and two satellite datasets. The graph showed that in the first eight years of the 21st century the Earth had cooled:
Representative Joe Barton of Texas, the formidable Republican ranking member of the House climate committee, feigned astonishment. He rounded on Karl and said: “You and other officials have made repeated appearances before this committee in recent months, telling us over and over again about “global warming”. Not one…

Arctic sea ice continues to track 2006, the year with the highest summer extent of the past decade.
Ice thickness is also the highest it has been since 2006.
The world’s top climate prophets say that the Arctic has been ice-free since 2013.
Normally by this date, about 20% of the Greenland ice sheet is melting. This year only about 5%, which is the slowest on record.
The capital of Greenland is still buried in snow on June 7.
Not surprisingly, temperatures there continue to be the coldest on record in 2015
Particularly interesting are June temperatures, which have plummeted to record low levels over the past three years.
Government experts say that Greenland is melting down, because they are paid to produce propaganda for the White House, not do actual science.
Fifteen years ago, climate experts said that snow is a thing of the past. Since then, Northern Hemisphere snow cover has soared to record levels.
What this tells us is that cold air is intruding further south during the snow season. It also tells us that Tom Karl at NOAA is lying about global temperatures.

Richard Mallett kindly points me towards Gavin’s comments on the Karl paper. It laughingly contains this comment:
Yes, really fragile, Gavin!!
To compound matters, he then tries a bit of misdirection about the temperature standstill:

WUWT has already thoroughly covered the latest NCDC attempt to remove the pause.
Basically, Thomas Karl and co have adjusted sea surface temperatures down prior to around 1998, and up since, so that they now show that SST’s have carried on rising unabated.
But I will just add two comments.
1) It is fundamental physics that when water is warmed up, the rate of evaporation increases. And evaporation is one of the main processes for the transfer of heat from the surface to the atmosphere, as NASA explain:
