US government data shows no warming in US for last decade

So, when you hear Obama and the alarmist bleating incessantly about the crisis of “global warming” or “climate change” or whatever phrase they choose to characterize the hoax they’re trying to perpetrate on the people of the country, ensure you point out that not even their own data supports their claim:

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s most accurate, up-to-date temperature data confirm the United States has been cooling for at least the past decade. The NOAA temperature data are driving a stake through the heart of alarmists claiming accelerating global warming.

Responding to widespread criticism that its temperature station readings were corrupted by poor siting issues and suspect adjustments, NOAA established a network of 114 pristinely sited temperature stations spread out fairly uniformly throughout the United States. Because the network, known as the U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN), is so uniformly and pristinely situated, the temperature data require no adjustments to provide an accurate nationwide temperature record. USCRN began compiling temperature data in January 2005. Now, nearly a decade later, NOAA has finally made the USCRN temperature readings available.

According to the USCRN temperature readings, U.S. temperatures are not rising at all – at least not since the network became operational 10 years ago. Instead, the United States has cooled by approximately 0.4 degrees Celsius, which is more than half of the claimed global warming of the twentieth century.

But, but, that’s only the US … yup, and that supports the observation that globally there has been no warming for the past 17 years.  The models are wrong.  Just flat wrong and it’s time we started saying that.  There is no credence to be found in their predictions and certainly nothing to support the alarmist’s claims.

Carly Fiorino, former CEO of Hewlett Packard and a senate candidate remarked this weekend on the cobbled up “war on women”.  On CNN, she pulled out a fortune she’d gotten from a fortune cookie and said:

“‘Strong and bitter words indicate a weak cause,’” Fiorina read. “And that’s exactly right. The War On Women is shameless, baseless propaganda. There’s no fact to it. But it’s worked because it’s scared women to death. Enough.”

Substitute the alarmist’s “climate change” for “war on women” and it describes precisely what is going on with them.  They have no case, only propaganda, and their only “argument” is to call the other side names and call for violent action against them.

Meanwhile, the case against the alarmist cause just keeps on getting stronger and stronger, not that it will slow them down or cause them to decrease the volume of screaming.  It’s not about science, it’s abotu power and money … and they want both.  More power over the way you live and more money to use against you to enforce their edicts.

  • You’re obviously a RAAAAAAACIST.
     
    And a GAIA hater
     
    Conflating the #waronwimmen with Global warming – how dare you! If you don’t support free contraception for Polar Bears then you’re the worst person on Earth

    • Might I get a nice table in the Racist Gaia hater section please monsieur Requin?
      Not in back please, I do wish to ‘be seen’.

  • Yeah, sooooo much of the Collectivist goo is failing to adhere lately.
     
    Even their “inequity” trope is coming a cropper.   Pink-kitty’s book is becoming the most UNREAD in America.
     
    Immigration has turned into anOTHER nightmare for Pres. ScamWOW, and nobody but Collectivist bung-suckers (I’m looking at YOU, Erp) fails to see Baracula’s fingerprints all over the exploitation of brown children in the current crisis.

  • Two headlines I saw this weekend –
    First,  “redheads” will become extinct, because they ONLY come from Scotland (uh huh, someone might want to tell the Udmurts in Russia….) and global warming will change the climate in Scotland so that redheads will evolve OUT of the species because the red hair color will no longer be beneficial genetic trait (more uh huh).    And this could happen in….a few centuries!!!!!  PANIC!!!!!  (and what the hell is it with people who don’t like redheads anyway?)
    I had to put ALL that in because the remarkable stupidity displayed needed to be fully covered.     Global warming was going to do that.
     
    In addition, the Antarctic Sea Ice extent is ‘confounding’ the computer models.   Gee, I see the problem, right there, IN THE HEADLINE…. reality confounded the model!
    Well hell, don’t go trusting reality, the model is obviously right, it’s reality that is screwed, that’s obvious to any climate de-ranger.
     
    There is NOTHING that the global climate change models cannot do friends, from wiping out gingers to drawing asteroids to collide with the earth, nothing.

    • I’m a redhead and let me tell you, my uber-Jewish family hasn’t a hint of Scottish blood so FAIL….

      • Yeah, they kinda left out the Irish, too.  Of course, there is usually a Scot in the woodpile…we are prolific breeders.

    • To make redheads extinct they need to be prevented from breeding and passing on the relevant gene(s). How does this happen in this situation, if the temperature rises a little? Maybe redheads become suddenly unsexy in Scotland when the temperature rises over freezing more often. Seems to me that it is a continuation of the BS stories from a few years ago where redheads (and blondes?) were supposed to be dying out just from population dynamics. Now they’ve added climate change. All in all, seems like a few scientists don’t know much science.

      • I think the implication was that redheads…with their very fair skin…would just burn up in the intense sunlight of the Gorebal future.  Kind of like the vampires in Interview With A…  More magic thinking.

        • I gather they’re not going to check the average weather conditions where the Udmurts live then.   Being a mid continental location their weather isn’t exactly like Scotland’s.
           
          Udmurts….nah, they’re not REAAAAAL Red heads because these scientists ain’t never heard of em.

  • And wasn’t the east coast just destroyed by SUPER STORM Arthur?   What will it take!
    It was the first hurricane to make landfall in the Continental US since 2012!   It was the first Cat 2 since 2008!   It was the earliest on the calendar to make landfall in North Carolina in recorded history!
    CLEARLY all caused by increasing temperatures caused by heathen deniers burning coal for electricity, driving around recklessly in gas guzzling SUV’s looking for herds BEEF to eat!
    WHY AREN’T YOU PEOPLE PANICKING!

    • Seen elsewhere: a prediction that tens of millions of Americans will be displaced because fracking will make the land around drill sites uninhabitable.
      I don’t think they went far enough.  Hurricane Arthur was pulled towards the US and increased in strength from all the fracking vibrations reversing the polarity and generating quantum brane waves.

      • Oh don’t ya know it – they’re desperate to live in the Judge Dredd universe where most of the country is a wasteland.   Because they desperately want to be able to say “we told you so!!!!”
         
        Reminds me of kids who wish they’d lose an eye or a leg or arm or get deathly ill…..to punish their parents.   “That’ll teach them!”

      • because normally so many of them are in complete tune with what’s happening half a mile or more + 5 feet 9 inches beneath their pointy Khardashian watching heads.

      • Huh.  Millions of Americans have lived with fracked wells nearby for decades.  Never even were aware, much less harmed.  Of course, some of them are dead now, so there’s that…
         
        I’ve actually worked on fracking crews, which can be dangerous work.  Damn drilling gel on the location after a rain is SLICK…!!!

        • Bu Buh But Matt Damon told me……and he was an English major at Harvard!   I saw a movie!   Well, I didn’t see it, but my girlfriend’s brother told me about it!
          Burning faucets!  or drain pipes or something to do with our drinking water…or something!      Waste lands!   The children!
           
          I mean, forget the idea of fracking originated with some Civil War vet who got the idea of dropping explosive torpedoes down wells to fracture the strata and increase the flow from a productive well.   Forget that the first commercial hydraulic fracs were done in Oklahoma and Texas on the same day in 1947 and that by 1988 the technology had been used nearly a million times!   Forget the fact that it’s been going on for most of the life times of the people who protest it, and their parents lifetimes too!
          No!!  Like the hole over the South Pole that no one knew was there until we hung a satellite, it just happened NOW and the end of the earth will result because even though it’s been done safely for years, WE just found out about it!!!! and By God we must STOP THEM before they kill us all!
          Polar bears drowning!
           
          You earth haters are all alike!     I wish you’d all die horrible fiery deaths and leave the earth to peaceful friendly people who just want everyone to be nice to each other and want what’s best for everyone!

          • I remember that, as a seven-year-old, I read an ad in National Geographic from…I think, Phillips Petroleum…about the snazzy new technology of pumping diesel and fertilizer down a well-bore and setting it off to “fractionate” the oil-bearing strata.
             
            Even in the decades since I worked on a fracking crew, they have come a LONG way, technologically speaking.  A frack job involves a fraction of the horse-power we used in my day.  Damn whippersnappers…!!!

          • I guess protesting high tension power lines and magnetic fields is passe now.  Fracing is the panicky soup du jour.   Earthquakes and devastation, the four horsemen of the apocalypse!
            “I saw a man on a pale horse named Mikey and the rider’s name was Frac”
            I wonder when we’ll achieve scientific consensus on the danger of fracing.

  • July 4 in Nashville has a high of 81. That is cooler than any July 4 holiday I can remember in my lifetime. The previous day was also in the low 80s, and I spent it taking pictures at the zoo for five hours, without breaking a sweat.
     
    Now, this is just one data point, and doesn’t count for much. But it’s consistent with the lower temps, as measured with the new stations.
     
    Plus, we all know that if it had been 103 in the shade, every warming fanatic would be claiming it validated their need to run our lives – for the good of humanity, of course.

    • Our normal high outside Phoenix is 106F during June and July.
      We’ve hit that once (June 30th). Aside from six other days whee we hit 104F, we’ve been at or BELOW 102F. That might not sound like much, but it’s statistically significant. And it’s been that way since last August.
      But ,hey!, “that’s weather, not climate”.

    • I made similar arguments when we had the harshest winter in years here in North Carolina, and in other states. The liberal response was: this is more evidence of man-made global climate change – more extreme weather, cold, hot, floods, etc. News flash: It’s cold in the winter. It’s hot in the summer. Storms happen. This is cyclical. The earth has had hotter and cooler periods than the last 100 years, and man had nothing to do with those. Why are we so conceited to think that all of a sudden we have changed the physics of planet earth?

  • Global warming. The war on women, free healthcare, freeflow immigration, banning voter ID. These are all scare tactics the Left uses to repress and scare their base. They create fears, then feed people what they have told them they need.

  • Well, as cool as the U.S. government admissions are, how are we going to get them to some parts of the world…
     
    Good news for viewers of BBC News: You’ll no longer be subjected to the unhinged ravings of climate deniers and other members of the anti-science fringe. In a report published Thursday by the BBC Trust, the network’s journalists were criticized for devoting too much airtime (as in, any airtime) to unqualified people with “marginal views” about non-contentious issues in a misguided attempt to provide editorial balance.
    —Rah, rahs from Salon
     
    This is what you get when you have GOVERNMENT media.

    • Think how useful that will be when conservatives take the House and Senate and we no longer concern ourselves with recruiting transgenders for the Military.  No more concerns about “marginal views” in a misguided attempt to provide balance.

      • As if the GOP would actually look at it that way.
         
        Those “marginal views” become super-dooper important when they reflect the needs of the political ruling class. Including Democrats, union leaders, journalists, and academics.
         
        In our postmodern era, “marginal views” will always be those of the people who want limited government. Even if, for a particular issue such as enforcing the borders, the issue has a large majority support.

  • Climate scientists long ago settled among themselves the question of whether human emissions of greenhouse gases are a problem, concluding that we are running some grave risks. But the field still features vigorous debate about how bad global warming will get, how quickly, and how to combat it.
     
    THAT somehow stealthed past the editors of the New York TimesSomebody is going to get a spanking…

    • Ah, they’ve gone past the argument about whether or not there are angels and have decided to debate important things like how many can dance on the head of a pin.

      • Which debate would be harmless enough.  But the debate over which laws and which taxes need to be imposed to curtail all that angel dancing WOULD be…!!!

        • As long as we continue to fund their discussions of pin heads, they’re golden.   That’s what it’s all about.  Well, and the fun of getting to tell the proles how to live.

          • IF we could assure that the latter proposition was KILLED, I would approve of a sinecure of a 1/2 million bucks for each of the “researchers”.  Sadly, there is no such assurance.  It isn’t just about money.  Part of it is religious, since it cannot be based on rational science.
