NOAA Data: No Warming in USA Since at Least 2005

In the long term, the climate always fluctuates, sometimes dramatically. At present, however, it is mostly static. The climate hysteria advanced by leftists has been propped up by phony data. Pull the phony data out from under it and the global warming hoax lands with a thud. This is beginning to happen already, with help from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Via Real Clear Energy:

In January 2005, NOAA began recording temperatures at its newly built U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN). USCRN includes 114 pristinely maintained temperature stations spaced relatively uniformly across the lower 48 states. NOAA selected locations that were far away from urban and land-development impacts that might artificially taint temperature readings.

This represents a significant departure from past practice. The government has recorded the temperatures largely in urban areas, where they are distorted by the heat sink effect. Then the data are adjusted to taste afterward.

Thanks to USCRN, there is no excuse to tamper with the raw data. A very different picture emerges from what we are told by the media.

USCRN temperature stations show no warming since 2005 when the network went online. If anything, U.S. temperatures are now slightly cooler than they were 14 years ago.

It may be longer still since there was any global warming:

Raw temperature readings at the preexisting stations indicate temperatures are the same now as 80 years ago. All of the asserted U.S. warming since 1930 is the product of the controversial adjustments made to the raw data.

CO2 levels have skyrocketed since 1930. Temperatures have remained flat. This does not support leftist global warming theory.

The obvious question:

Climate activists frequently visit or mention particular regions, states, or places in the United States and claim warming impacts are evident, accelerating, and unmistakable. Yet how can that be when there has been no warming in the United States since at least 2005?

The obvious answer: catastrophic anthropogenic global warming is a hoax.

Carbon emissions may or may not have any impact on the climate. We won’t know the truth until the subject has been depoliticized. What we know now is that the leftists who have been stoking and exploiting climate hysteria to advance their political agenda are lying.

No wonder warmists shriek with ever more hysterical urgency. They must impose their radical proposals quickly, before it becomes common knowledge that their hoax has been debunked.
