It is worth noting that this is not the work of ignorant people. It is, rather, largely the result of work by people with BAs, BSs, LLBs, MBAs, and PhDs. Elie Wiesel made a similar point to the Global Forum in Moscow last winter when he said that the designers and perpetrators of the Holocaust were the heirs of Kant and Goethe. In most respects the Germans were the best educated people on Earth, but their education did not serve as an adequate barrier to barbarity. What was wrong with their education? In Wiesel 8767 s words: It emphasized theories instead of values, concepts rather than human beings, abstraction rather than consciousness, answers instead of questions, ideology and efficiency rather than conscience.
Do you regard accusing an entire scientific community of groupthink is acceptable behaviour? If so, who has the right to make such accusations and against whom can they be made?
With Obama 8767 s last shot at a climate deal coming up, we get Karl 65 which assures us there was no pause, based on 8775 improvements 8776 in the data.
He can get his own data, right? Buoy data can 8767 t be that hard to find. What stops him from doing his own work? These complaints never come up with an alternative result, and unless they do, the whole complaint is on no foundation.
It looks like somebody tried to get the 8775 researchers 8776 to justify bad findings before the organisation 8767 s reputation was trashed. And don 8767 t think for a moment that NOAA 8767 s reputation hasn 8767 t been trashed. Skeptics know what passes for science at NOAA and despise them for it. True Believers know what NOAA got away with, but just think it was justified because it supports the narrative. But they don 8767 t trust them with real science.
8775 The nature of urban environments makes it impossible to conform to the standard guidance for site selection and exposure of instrumentation required for establishing a homogeneous record that can be used to describe the larger-scale climate 8776
The traditional files posted at NOAA are the MLOST files, which used to be 6966-6995, but may be now 6976-7555. They are the ones that are directly calculated, and would be what is in the archive. The 85-year baseline is one that can be used for most stations. Then the results are converted to 6956-7555 for most reporting purposes. I 8767 m not sure why it sounds like a longer base would be better, but in fact what counts is the base when you first aggregate. Annoyingly, the MLOST data is now posted later than the the 6956-7555 conversion.
The role played by America is particularly important in generating and perpetuating the concept of "race." The human inhabitants of the Western Hemisphere largely derive from three very separate regions of the world Northeast Asia, Northwest Europe, and Western Africa and none of them has been in the New World long enough to have been shaped by their experiences in the manner of those long-term residents in the various separate regions of the Old World.
