Devastating non-trends in US Climate

Devastating non-trends in US Climate“. The US government is lying to us when the Interagency Climate Change Adaptation Task Force says “Climate change is already having “pervasive, wide-ranging” effects“.

Anthony Watts knows this. So he presents Warren Meyer’s careful selection of trivial regional charts stripped of meaningful analysis and intended to convince suggestible eyeballs as a counter.

Of course the only link Anthony provides is some news coverage of the report, where his ditto-heads can flood the comments.

  1. Watts conveniently leaves out the fact that the report is preliminary, or bother to include a link to it (Google the task force’s name and you’re right there).

    I tried to find the source of the charts. They appear to have been created by Meyer himself with no reference to what source data he used.

  2. Who believes we can trust Warren Meyer to tell the unvarnished truth and always exercise due scientific diligence?

    Not me.

    Here is a post where his ‘Coyote’ blog reveals that ‘Nearly all the reported warming in the USHCN data base, which is used for nearly all global warming studies and models, is from human-added fudge factors, guesstimates, and corrections.’

    One small problem. The adjustments are in degrees Farenheit, the increase is in Celsius. Shall I repeat that? Ok. Warren Meyer has a web page up where he compares measurements in two incompatible units as if they were the same. The error has been pointed out in comments, yet the page remains up, misleading readers. Imagine for a moment the fuss if (say) Professor Phil Jones made such a schoolboy howler, and failed to retract it ….

    Meyer is demonstrably not a reliable source. Warren remains on Anthony’s ‘blogroll’. Need we say more?
