2015 is the make-or-break year for climate alarmism, with a crucial battle planned for Paris in November. So we can expect regular bursts of global warming propaganda.

The year started on cue with a breathless announcement from the US National Climate Data Centre: “2014 was Earth's warmest year on record” (their records start in 1880).

The Little Ice Age ended in about 1880. Therefore it is no surprise that global temperatures have generally risen since then. And it reveals nothing about the cause of the warming.

Moreover the announcement hides more than it reveals.

Firstly the alleged new peak temperature is just 0.04C higher than 2010. Who are they kidding? No weather recording station can measure to that accuracy. Once the likely error bars are added to the averaged data, the story changes to “recent global temperatures remain flat”.

Secondly, what does “average” mean? Almost every place on Earth has a different average temperature, and the averages range from 34C to -58C, a range of 92C. With very large daily and seasonal variations, an unevenly scattered and variable set of temperature recording stations, plus frequent “adjustments” to the raw figures, their calculated “global average” is probably a manipulated and meaningless number.

Trends are more important than spot values. Satellite data and proxies such as ice core data give more reliable long-term “average” temperature trends; both records say that 2014 is NOT unusually high.

Moreover, information on global temperature trends go back far beyond 1880 – ice core data goes back 20,000 years. These show there were several periods in the last 10,000 years with global temperatures significantly above that for 2014.

So the “warmest year on record” is just another warmist temperature lie.

“Global Cooling, The coming Ice Age, the end of the inter Glaciation period” these were all DE RIGUEUR in the late seventies is this a new lot of scientists ?

It all started with the mammoths. Farting buggars – caused the Ice Age. What happened to the hole in the ozone layer and ,global warming? All that money wasted by supposedly scientific prats – and economists such as Flannery who are true geniuses. Yes – geniuses because they know how to control and milk a system with the support of the greens and labor to ensure that they have perks and lurks to promote their propaganda. By the way – hasn’t a study been done to show that teacher graduates are the most incompetent of all. They then become the… Read more »

Wouldn’t be much of a gyno if he couldn’t help with back pain. The climate change faithful hang on the every word of the Flim Flam Mammal Man. Much reliance is placed on geological data as evidence of climate change. The issue is mostly a question of the integrity of the scientific method. If my recall is reliable every discipline from Epidemiology to Linguistics has climbed aboard the gravy train.

Pseudo science masquerading as real data! Problem is that we don’t have enough Big Forbes to counteract the BS from the other side. Consequently the BS’s appeal to the “great unwashed” to our detriment!

I believe the weather stations in USA in the Rockies have been shut down so the cooler temperatures of the mountain air does not affect their warmer areas by bringing down the average. Can someone confirm this?

The Cairns and Broome Aborigines tribes have a few paintings on some rocks that clearly show it was hot some 10-20 thousand years ago….And they used trees for shade!

Yes. It has been so bloody hot in North America and Europe the last couple of years, hasn’t it? I did read some alarmist trying to blame the freezes in the northern hemisphere on….. yes you guessed it…….global warming!! Not even climate change, but bloody global warming. I guess they had been so busy on the warming mantra that they didn’t read the alarmists update saying “don’t mention global warming, just chant climate change!” Which after all is true…….climate changes, as it always has and slways will, with or without alarmists help or hindrance.

…yes of course it is Viv….these f**king Global Warming alarmists just got to ratchet up the alarmist propaganda…and it seems it will keep ratcheting up more as this great hoax becomes more exposed…not to forget…Global Warming has nothing to do with saving the planet…its all about destroying industrial based countries and wealth distribution to shit-hole countries around the world…this bullshit in New York…everyone in government were running around like headless-chooks alarming and scaring everyone…but it was a fizzer…and then the Meteorology people apologized for getting it wrong through…wait for it…false computer modeling…NOOOOOOOO!!…really!!!….what just like the false computer modeling in the… Read more »

The less funds these thieves get, the scarier their climate change stories will become. They are more dishonest than a bank robber. We all know when a bank robber is doing a stick up. The global warming now climate change thieves pretend they are caring but is all about their livelihoods and to date have never predicted one outcome and now have resorted to reporting post event (of a weather experience or bushfire) with predictions of more and worse to come. Historical research has shown storms, droughts and fires and no more or less serious than they have been in… Read more »

What happened this winter?

This winter, the maximum total Antarctic sea ice extent was reported to be 19.47 million square kilometres, which is 3.6% above the winter average calculated from 1981 to 2010. This continues a trend that is weakly positive and remains in stark contrast to the decline in Arctic summer sea ice extent (2013 was 18% below the mean from 1981-2010).

but but but evil CO2 is causing this increase (0.04 degrees)…..Need to bring in Labor’s Price on Carbon for the masses to gorge on in welfare! Abbott is evil too with awards and other stuff and out GG is over in House Saudi to honour another peadophile from that house….Wasnt the Mo-is hammed one doing over a child bride so the King must have followed his prophet and an Ozzie representing US & celebrating his life…Common the climate needs to change with all this OS crap & scaremongering IMO!

Why has the Global Warming alarm bell been rung?? It’s because the lobbyists who make a career out of fund raising just wanted another cause to get massive donations from concerned citizens. How much did Al Gore and his production company get paid for the pack of lies he told. Its all about the money and it always will be. You can see the alarmist propaganda machine working against GM crops which will increase productivity and resistance disease and insect attack so the fewer herbicides and pesticides are used. Coal Seam Gas is another target which is helping the USA… Read more »

Propaganda is right. Every night on the news they are telling us how hot it is. A few days ago we were told Marble Bar was the hottest place in the world. We were taught that it was when I went to school nearly 70 years ago They had just missed the record high temperature by .1 of a degree – the record temperature was set in 1905. Tell the people of New York there is global warming at the moment I am sure they would welcome it.

Yesterdays Daily Telegraph had the melt from one Antarctic glacier raising earth’s oceans by six meters. It takes about three hundred and sixty thousand cubic kilometers of melted ice (water) to raise Earth’s oceans by one meter, so it must be a hell of a big glacier! Plus they never say how long it would take to melt given the temperatures of the region. Why do they print this rubbish?

I’ll (perhaps) start to believe the crap when Flannery sells his waterfront and moves to a mountain. If sea levels are rising and at such an alarming rate that we are all doomed to drown, then wouldn’t the value of his asset be going down??? Better sell soon Timmy or it will be worth zero! Maybe then I could afford it. CRAP of the highest order. Charge the lot with fraud. Follow the MONEY and the truth comes out. To a lefty, money solves everything.

Viv, do the sums on the Totten Glacier. The alarmists say it is melting and has enough water to raise the oceans 6 M but it is quoted as being twice the size of Victoria ie half a million sq kMs. The oceans are 361,000,000 sq kMs so my maths say that the glacier, with a base as quoted would need to be a solid block of ice 4,500 M high. [Twice as high as Mt Kosciusko]

I’m no scientist, you may be able to do more with this.
