NOAA caught with its pants down – Temperature fraud

“I thought you might like the temperature fraud that had been uncovered by the Capital Weather Gang in Washington DC at Reagan by NOAA since 2014,” says reader Kingbum.

“Sensors been found to be giving at least a 1.7F warming bias….This time NOAA was caught with its pants down and by their response its obvious this is all politically driven.”

“When confronted with an obviously broken weather station that was reading way too hot, they replaced the faulty sensor — but refused to adjust the bad readings it had already taken,” says this exposé by Patrick Michaels.

“When dealing with “the pause” in global surface temperatures that is in its 19th year,” says Michaels, “the agency threw away satellite-sensed sea-surface temperatures, substituting questionable data that showed no pause.”

  1. Well now that sounds about right! Not right as in right and wrong; I mean it sounds like an accurate assessment of what happened.

    Too bad we couldn’t prosecute those responsible for lying…

  2. Most of what’s left of NOAA’s Weather stations are all are at Airports. What makes up airports, Miles of heat absorbing Asphalt, Concrete, metal, and Concrete buildings, Planes, and Jet exhaust, and automobiles. They might as well be put down town any major city in the country.

    • To quote George Carlin on the weather temps being at the airport:

      “Who do you know who lives at the airport?”

  3. From my fave weat her KYTV forecaster, Chris Bailey in Kentucky – I suspect those “back-temps| were never re-adjusted for the fault either!

    “While on the subject of temps, my twitter followers may have noticed me going off on the official Lexington temperature at Blue Grass Airport… Again. The FAULTY TEMPERATURE SENSORE was replaced last November and it worked like a charm until the past month. It’s now back to skewing daytime temps much warmer than surrounding sites and what the climatology of the site would suggest.

    The site worked properly for a whopping 8 months after a very expensive fix. This go around, I’m not alone in trying to figure out what’s going on with the site. Some pretty big players are getting involved… Stay tuned!”

    He has been complaining about this for the past couple of years.

    He has also been tracking the “winter pattern” that has been in place since 2013.

    • Last spring, beginning of summer our OFFICIAL weather gage at the airport here in Klamath Falls Oregon also went on the fritz. It was reading way to high!

  5. This needs to be read over and over and plastered all over the place for people to understand whats going on. Let me recap…

    So the sensors had been found to be giving at least a 1.7F warming bias but they refused to adjust the bad readings. So basically they can adjust data warmer to avoid “the pause” but they wont adjust down.

  6. “When confronted with an obviously broken weather station that was reading way too hot, they replaced the faulty sensor — but refused to adjust the bad readings it had already taken,”

    Of course not, for they have to keep the Global Lie going!

  7. NOAA’s lies don’t surprise me anymore. They also lied in March 2003 when actual temps were 2 to 4F colder than normal across the northern states and 1 to 3 below normal elsewhere in the Midwest. But NOAA used the deceptive standard deviation charts, showing that March 2003 was above normal although actual data showed otherwise. . Very deceiving!
