From John Hinderaker at Powerlineblog.com.

“On record” meaning since the 1880s, i.e., the end of the Little Ice Age. The year is a long way from being over, but I will venture a guess that the alarmists will claim 2016, when in the books, was the hottest year evah. One problem, as we have pointed out many times, is that the books have been cooked.

The keeper of the U.S. temperature records is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which is paid to be on board with global warming hysteria. How does NOAA stir up alarm? By changing the historic temperature record to make the past look cooler and the present warmer. Icecap explains:

NOAA shows July temperatures increasing at 1.0F per century since 1895, with 2012 tied with 1936 as the hottest July.


It looks like there could be a little global warming going on, right? But the temperatures reported by NOAA are not the ones that were actually recorded. This is what the same graph looks like, before NOAA’s “adjustments.”


Oops. No global warming. Icecap quantifies the impact of NOAA’s “adjustments.”

The actual raw temperature data they use to generate their graph, shows one tenth as much warming from 1895 to 2016, with 1901, 1936 and 1934 as the hottest years.

If 1895 is removed, there is no warming at all.
NOAA creates this warming by massively cooling the past. They got rid of the hot 1901 by cooling it 2.13 degrees. They cooled 1936 by by 1.13 degrees and cooled 1934 by 1.11 degrees. That is what it took to elevate 2012 to the hottest July.

Emphasis added. So NOAA’s “adjustments” increase global warming by 1,000%. Gosh! Why might they do that?

The claimed warming trend in the US is completely fake, and is altered by people at NOAA who are being paid to push the global warming agenda. Before they were paid to push anthropogenic warming, the very same people at NOAA (i.e. Tom Karl) knew that there was no US warming.


That was reported by the New York Times, before the Times understood how global warming hysteria could be used to augment the power of government.

These NOAA data relate to the U.S., which comprises only a tiny percentage of the Earth’s surface. But, as Icecap points out, the U.S. data are critical to the warmist cause:

The US makes up less than 10% of the land surface, but contains the majority of the high quality long term temperature monitoring stations for this planet. The global surface temperature record is a farce, which is why the US data is so important.

As I have said many times before, catastrophic anthropogenic global warming alarmism is not an honest scientific mistake. It is a fraud, perpetrated for the usual reasons–money and power.

The Climate Myth Controls at Colorado U.

Well, I would’ve been kicked out of this class for sure.

Three professors at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs are teaching a class called, “Medical Humanities in the Digital Age.” I know, I know. It sounds…horrid. But with the fall semester starting, the professors sent out an email to students signed up for the class, warning them that man-made climate change is NOT up for debate, and if they have a problem with that, they should probably just drop the class, losers.

“The point of departure for this course is based on the scientific premise that human induced climate change is valid and occurring. We will not, at any time, debate the science of climate change, nor will the ‘other side’ of the climate change debate be taught or discussed in this course,” the email states.


Translation: The entire course is based on a lie. A myth. A theory, which has been debunked time and time again. If you cannot accept that the class is based on lies, you shouldn’t be in the class. That’s what professors are telling students now. “Accept our lies or LEAVE!”

“Opening up a debate that 98% of climate scientists unequivocally agree to be a non-debate would detract from the central concerns of environment and health addressed in this course,” the email continued. “If you believe this premise to be an issue for you, we respectfully ask that you do not take this course, as there are options within the Humanities program for face to face this semester and online next.”

The professors don’t want to be challenged. They don’t want to talk about how climate scientists consistently fudge the numbers. They don’t want to talk about how the U.S. government’s Global Historical Climate Network has adjusted numbers on temperature graphs. They don’t want to talk about how altering our behavior (our behavior– if you think John Kerry and Michael Moore will stop flying in their private jets and living in ginormous homes, you’re high) to reduce carbon emissions is stupid because it DOESN’T MAKE A FREAKING DIFFERENCE.

Liberals are famous for altering the argument to keep their agenda alive. Antarctic ice is increasing? That’s a BAD thing RUN FOR YOU LIVES!

I’m guessing they don’t want to talk about the crooked methodology climate alarmist John Cook used to arrive to his so called “scientific consensus.” Nope. They can’t have students stray from the groupthink narrative and actually think for themselves!

However, University Communications Director Tom Hutton doesn’t seem to have a problem with the professors’ letter, as students have other options and aren’t being forced to take the class against their will. If you want to be brainwashed, it’s totally voluntary.

“Humanities 3990 is a special topics course with multiple choices for students to take when fulfilling requirements,” he told the College Fix. “By clearly stating the class focus…the faculty are allowing students to choose if they wish to enroll in the course or seek an alternative. Additionally, the faculty who are leading the course have offered to discuss it with students who have concerns or differing opinions.”

Really? ‘Cause their letter literally reads, “If you believe this premise to be an issue for you, we respectfully ask that you do not take this course.” Doesn’t sound very open-minded to me.
