Uh-Oh: New Report Just Dropped A Bomb On Key Climate Change Data

Peer-reviewed study finds that three key global temperature data sets are “not a valid representation of reality.”

Another inconvenient truth. 

A new peer-reviewed bombshell study concludes that three key global temperature data sets used in recent climate change models have been “adjusted” in such a way as to not be “a valid representation of reality.”

The study, titled “On the Validity of NOAA, NASA and Hadley CRU Global Average Surface Temperature Data & The Validity of EPA’s CO2 Endangerment Finding,” was published in June and written by James P. Wallace III, Joseph S. D’Aleo and Craig Idso. It was reviewed and approved by Drs. Alan Carlin, Harold H. Doiron, Theodore R. Eck, Richard A. Keen, Anthony R. Lupo, Thomas P. Sheahan, and George T. Wolff.

The scientists determined that the EPA’s conclusions based off of all three GAST data sets were “invalidated,” one of the authors claiming that “[n]early all of the warming” shown in the data sets are accounted for by the “adjustments” made by scientists to past temperatures.

“The conclusive findings of this research are that the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation of reality,” the scientists state in the abstract. “In fact, the magnitude of their historical data adjustments, that removed their cyclical temperature patterns, are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data. Thus, it is impossible to conclude from the three published GAST data sets that recent years have been the warmest ever — despite current claims of record setting warming.”

The researchers explain in the abstract that they set out to “test the hypothesis that Global Average Surface Temperature (GAST) data, produced by NOAA, NASA, and HADLEY, are sufficiently credible estimates of global average temperatures such that they can be relied upon for climate modeling and policy analysis purposes.”

The authors underscore that the validity all three GAST data sets are essential to the EPA’s GHG/CO2 Endangerment Finding. If they are not a “valid representation of reality,” then the EPA’s conclusions are invalid.
