A new scientific research study was just released that declares “nearly all” of climate change data from NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Met Office in the United Kingdom contain significant adjustments in their temperature collection. As a result, many are now questioning the exact validity of these studies as it pertains to climate change.
The report in called “On the Validity of NOAA, NASA and Hadley CRU Global Average Surface Temperature Data and the Validity of EPA’s CO2 Endangerment Finding” by James P. Wallace III, Joseph S. D’Aleo and Craig Idso.
“The objective of this research was 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 report reads.
Many factors affect the locations in which raw data is collected. Therefore, variables such as “contamination by urbanization” need to be taken in account. The authors of this study sought to determine whether scientific adjustments for raw temperature were actually appropriate.
“As a result, this research sought to validate the current estimates of GAST using the best available relevant data,” the researchers stated. “This included the best documented and understood data sets from the U.S. and elsewhere as well as global data from satellites that provide far more extensive global coverage and are not contaminated by bad siting and urbanization impacts.”
The study comes to the conclusion that “the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation of reality.”
“The conclusive findings of this research are that the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation of reality,” the report reads. “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.”
“Nearly all of the warming they are now showing are in the adjustments,” meteorologist and co-author Joe D’Aleo asserted. “Each dataset pushed down the 1940s warming and pushed up the current warming.”
D’Aleo added. “You would think that when you make adjustments you’d sometimes get warming and sometimes get cooling. That’s almost never happened.”
