They now show 45 mm sea level rise during that same period, using the same data set.
The overlay showed how the University of Colorado has altered the data since 2004, to suit their funding needs.
They are not alone in this effort. The overlay below shows how NASA has similarly altered their tide gauge data, to hide the fact that sea level rise slowed dramatically after 1950.
In 1982, NASA showed 1 mm/year. Now they claim 3.3 mm/year. They have more than tripled sea level rise by simply altering the data.
Eighty-six percent of tide gauges are below 3.2 mm/year.
NOAA says that sea level rise is only 1.7-1.8 mm per year – just over half of what CU/NASA claim.

And yet still, draconian climate policy and literally trillions of dollars worth of ‘green’ schemes and scams are dictated and directed around overheated IPCC and CSIRO climate models that *do not* observe reality and are simply broken.
Dr. Judith Curry tips me to this new study in GRL:
Unreliable climate simulations overestimate attributable risk of extreme weather and climate events
Omar Bellprat, Francisco Doblas-Reyes
Event attribution aims to estimate the role of an external driver after the occurrence of an extreme weather and climate event by comparing the probability that the event occurs in two counterfactual worlds. These probabilities are typically computed using ensembles of climate simulations whose simulated probabilities are known to be imperfect. The implications of using imperfect models in this context are largely unknown, limited by the number of observed extreme events in the past to conduct a robust evaluation. Using an idealized framework, this model limitation is studied by generating large number of simulations with variable reliability in simulated probability. The framework illustrates that unreliable climate simulations are prone to overestimate the attributable risk to climate change. Climate model ensembles tend to be…

One of the graphs we have had on the WUWT sea ice page has been the DMI graph showing 30% concentration of sea ice extent, there has been a widening divergence between the two Arctic sea ice extent graphs produced by DMI. WUWT reader David Burton writes:
Until a few days ago, Denmark’s Meteorologiske Institut (DMI) graphed Arctic sea ice extent two ways. They had a graph comparing the current year to the preceding ten years’ “30%+ concentration” Arctic sea ice extent, with coastal zones masked out, by graphing each year in a different color on the same horizontal timescale.
They also had (and still have) a graph comparing the current year to the preceding four years’ “15%+ concentration” Arctic sea ice extent (and I don’t know how they handle coastal zones in that version). In both graphs, the current (partial) year is plotted with a heavier black line.

…Not to mention the other small problem when the wind ‘doesn’t’ blow.
Money down the drain
[image credit: thisismoney.co.uk]
Over-supply of wind energy is a known problem, but it’s getting worse as more windfarms are connected to an electricity grid that wasn’t designed to accommodate them. Wind Energy News explains.
Energy giants have been paid a record £4million a week in subsidy this winter to turn off wind turbines. While people struggled to pay energy bills compensation was handed to wind farm owners because the power they generate could not be used.

Obama orders Pentagon, generals and admirals to make climate change Job One

Military triumphs and catastrophes have often hinged on how well (or luckily) armies and navies employed, avoided or benefited from weather and other natural events.
Severe storms helped the British navy defeat Spain’s Armada in 1588. George Washington knew horrid weather meant the Hessians would not expect an attack across the Delaware River on Christmas 1776.
Napoleon captured Moscow before leading his Grande Armée’s exhausted, starving, freezing remnants back to France through a bitter 1812 Russian winter. Hitler’s army never even reached Moscow; it was decimated by disease, starvation, bullets and frigid cold at Stalingrad 140 years later.
Eisenhower’s Normandy invasion plans anticipated a full moon that would illuminate bomber targets and bring low tides to expose German mines and obstacles along the beaches. Instead, overcast skies limited Allied air support – but persuaded…

As we know, NSIDC only publish Arctic sea ice data from 1979. As I have pointed out many times, this just happens to coincide with one of the coldest periods of the 20thC in the Arctic.
For instance, in Iceland:

“Hottest Year Evah” update …
According to Heidi Cullen at Climate Fraud Central, New Mexico summers are getting red hot, warming at 12 degrees per century.
Had she done any actual research, she would have found out that this was largely due to one bogus thermometer at Springer, NM
Other nearby thermometers show something completely different. Temperatures are no warmer than 80 years ago.
And in the middle of the state, the same thing. But the real fraud lies in the date where Heidi starts her trend. Right at the low point of the last century.
A few stations in New Mexico do show summer warming, but claims of 12 degrees per century for the state are utterly absurd.
Birds covered in oil, gasping and dying from disasters like Exxon Valdez are rare yet are plastered across the media with understandable shock and horror.
Rare birds and bats are being slaughtered by the hundreds and thousands *everyday* by Industrial Wind Turbines, yet we hear little to nothing on mainstream media, or from green groups.
Where’s the outrage?
Green hypocrisy at its ugliest and most sinister.
Centuries from now – archaeologists and palaeontologists will be sifting through what were communities of isolated-candle-lit hovels and find the remains of the 21st Century wind-worship-cult that ended up living in the Stone Age poverty that they were ready to foist upon everybody else.
As they unravel the secrets of what led to the great wind power fraud – that will then be ancient history – the experts will be more than a little perplexed at how these people were able to generate foaming outrage – on the one hand – and malign indifference – on the other – when faced with identical avian outcomes.
Every time an oil rig blows up or an oil tanker runs aground – the faux ‘green’ is the first to howl “blue murder” and demand an end to the oil industry, as soon as birds start washing up on a beach drenched in…

For the last few months, there has been a widening divergence between the two Arctic sea ice extent graphs produced by DMI.
The above chart for Feb 2nd, accessed via the Wayback Machine, is for 30% ice concentration, and shows ice extent at 10-year high levels since October.
This is how DMI describe this data:
Total sea ice extent on the northern hemisphere since 2005. The ice extent values are calculated from the ice type data from the Ocean and Sea Ice, Satellite Application Facility (OSISAF), where areas with ice concentration higher than 30% are classified as ice.
The total area of sea ice is the sum of First Year Ice (FYI), Multi Year Ice (MYI) and the area of ambiguous ice types, from the OSISAF ice type product. However, the total estimated ice area is underestimated due to…

How not to measure temperature (or climate) #97 – California’s warming air temperatures are population and site bias relatedPosted: February 20, 2016
A couple of days ago, I highlighted a worst of the worst NOAA climate monitoring station in Arizona with the help of a scientist from the University of Washington.
My friend Jim Goodridge, former California State Climatologist continues to be busy in his retirement, and sends this along today. He’s been tracking a group of weather stations in California, and has been doing so for over 20 years. In fact, it was Jim who first introduced me to that light bulb moment where I realized that global warming wasn’t really all it was cracked up to be when he made this short publication in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society in 1996.
I guess you could say it was the graph that launched a thousand blog posts, because as we all know, CO2 can’t heat differently based on county population.
So with that in mind, have a look at his…
