A bombshell new study has determined that the vast majority of “climate change” data that are cited in the corporate media’s fearmongering reports have actually been faked.
Veteran meteorologist Anthony Watts of the Heartland Institute recently concluded a massive study on the weather and the climate in general.
Watts had traveled around the country inspecting meteorological equipment and studying historical weather data from around the globe.
Watts found that the wildfires across North America are nothing new and have nothing to do with climate change, despite what the mainstream media claims.
He notes that in the 21st century, there have actually been far fewer wildfires than in the past.
According to Watts:
Rather than focusing discussion on what the real or imagined harms may be, how to mitigate them, and how to help people, climate activists are taking the opportunity to blame “climate change” for the smoke.
The reality is wildfires are becoming less frequent and severe as the planet modestly warms.
As wildfires become less frequent, it is nonsensical to blame the few wildfires that remain on climate change…
Peer-reviewed studies and verified satellite observations show beyond a shadow of a doubt that wildfires in the long term, mid-term, and short term have become less frequent and less severe as the Earth modestly warms.
The likely reason is the measured increase in evaporation from the world’s oceans, which has resulted in more frequent global precipitation.
Slay News reports: That’s not the most disturbing part of the story, however.
When discussing the “modest warming” that the planet has exhibited, the claims must be backed up by solid data.
But as Dr. Watts has examined weather stations around the country, he has discovered that the available data may be nearly useless when attempting to quantify very slight changes in average temperatures.
The claims about warming are completely flawed because more than 90% of the data is “corrupted,” Watts warns.
And the reason for that is the reality that the vast majority of thermometers that NOAA relies on are improperly installed and maintained.
This leads to the recording of artificially higher temperatures.
A new study, Corrupted Climate Stations: The Official U.S. Surface Temperature Record Remains Fatally Flawed, finds approximately 96 percent of U.S. temperature stations used to measure climate change fail to meet what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) considers to be “acceptable” and uncorrupted placement by its own published standards.
The report, published by The Heartland Institute, was compiled via satellite and in-person survey visits to NOAA weather stations that contribute to the “official” land temperature data in the United States.
The research shows that 96% of these stations are corrupted by localized effects of urbanization – producing heat-bias because of their close proximity to asphalt, machinery, and other heat-producing, heat-trapping, or heat-accentuating objects.
In order to produce accurate temperature readings based on NOAA’s own published standards, thermometers are supposed to be in natural, “pristine” locations such as fields, forests, or hilltops.
However, Dr. Watts’ research has revealed that more than 90% of NOAA thermometers are in inappropriate places.
96% are in parking lots, on buildings, against brick walls, or in other artificial environments.
The bricks, asphalt, and other human construction materials used in these environments artificially trap heat, leading to a “warming bias” in the collected data.
Thermometers placed in natural settings register lower average temperatures.
That’s not to say that the cities, parking lots, and highways aren’t warmer. They clearly are.
But it’s not because the planet overall is getting warmer.
It’s because we build things that trap and retain more heat than Mother Nature would capture and retain if left to her own devices.
These areas also have multiple man-made influences on temperatures such as vehicles, heaters and air conditioning units, subways, and more people, etc.
Sadly, these facts are ignored by corporate media reports on the so-called “climate crisis.”
Data showing that global temperatures are not increasing wouldn’t make any money for people like “climate czar” John Kerry and his private jet-setting friends, so you’ll never hear them endorse it.
