Global Climate Change Fraud Continues

Statistics are apparently not the strong suit of Gaia worshipers.

After announcing that the October '08 was the warmest October evah! it turns out James Hansen* and his band of merry climate scaremongers at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) made a 'mistake'...they simply used the same data from September '08 two months in a row.

The error was so glaring that when it was reported on the two blogs - run by the US meteorologist Anthony Watts and Steve McIntyre, the Canadian computer analyst who won fame for his expert debunking of the notorious "hockey stick" graph - GISS began hastily revising its figures. This only made the confusion worse because, to compensate for the lowered temperatures in Russia, GISS claimed to have discovered a new "hotspot" in the Arctic - in a month when satellite images were showing Arctic sea-ice recovering so fast from its summer melt that three weeks ago it was 30 per cent more extensive than at the same time last year.

A GISS spokesman lamely explained that the reason for the error in the Russian figures was that they were obtained from another body, and that GISS did not have resources to exercise proper quality control over the data it was supplied with. This is an astonishing admission: the figures published by Dr Hansen's institute are not only one of the four data sets that the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) relies on to promote its case for global warming, but they are the most widely quoted, since they consistently show higher temperatures than the others.

It seems a 10 degree increase in the average temperature is close enough for government work, even in the face of record cold temperature and snow fall reports.

Gaia can be a harsh mistress. Sometimes she demands you suspend disbelief and risk your credibility (or what's left of it).

And they would have gotten away with it too if it hadn't been for those meddling bloggers! If only these damn bloggers would understand the science is settled, we could get on with the important business of increasing government control of our lives saving the planet.


*Thanks to robtr for the correction of Hansen's name. There's nothing worse than taking someone to task for making a basic error while making one yourself. On the upside, I'm an idiot co-moron, not the man considered one of the foremost experts on 'global warming'.
