Now It Appears the NOAA Has Also Been Hiding the Decline (in the US!)

When it rains, it pours. Besides the two examples from Down Under, we now have several examples from California of what appear to be blatant manipulation of temperature data to hide a decline. In both cases the older record was truncated since it showed warmer temperatures back in the 1880s. This chart is from Orland, CA, a rural site which has happily stayed in one place for 100 years. The motion GIF should show the deception (click on it if it doesn’t animate). A second example in the link above comes from Fairmont , CA, another happy, stable rural site.

Yikes, as they say in Oz. When these guys adjust, they don’t mess around. So how can they trumpet the current year as one of the hottest ever when we have had record cold since October, certainly in the US?

In both cases NOAA like CRU before it are now claiming the raw data no longer exists. I guess they learned – Nixon should have burned the tapes!

There may be a prosaic explanation, but instead all we get from the Climate Cabal are attempts to minimize the damage and pretend nothing happened. Worse, we hear Al Gore continue to repeat the falsities as alarmist fact. The cover-up and obfuscation simply compounds the mistake. This is the worst scandal in science in 500 years, and it is getting smellier as more revelations come to light.
