“An over the top view of satellite sensor failure“. You know someone’s gone “off the reservation” when even Anthony Watts can’t choke down a ‘warmist’ conspiracy theory about temperature records. Apparently his readers have clamored for him to spread the word.
Respected American physicist, Dr Charles R. Anderson has waded into the escalating Satellitegate controversy publishing a damning analysis on his blog. (from “co2 insanity”)
Dr. Anderson is an elderly materials scientist with a sudden interest in, and woefully limited understanding of, satellite temperature measurements. It’s not normal, expected and correctable instrument issues. No, it’s a deliberate conspiracy to falsify the readings! A classic of going emeritus.
I can’t help but admire in passing how Climate Change Dispatch describes Dr. Jones’ repeated exoneration by the many “Climategate” investigations: CRU’s Professor Phil Jones only escaped criminal prosecution by way of a technicality. Yeah, in that there wasn’t even a technicality that could be used against him.
Since NOAA actually shows the information directly on their web site link:- http://www.oso.noaa.gov/poesstatus/spacecraftStatusSummary.asp?spacecraft=17
Further, I believe the good Dr Roy Spencer actually wrote a simplistic article on how Microwave Radiometers are calibrated whilst in service as well.
Sorry guys, those sneaky smarty pants PhD NOAA scientists, as usual were way ahead in that ball game yet again.
Me thinks the incoherent chorus of ersatz discord of deliberately avoiding reality from the real world, are now rapidly running out of nits to pick.
What next, cow farts in Outer Mongolia, distort temperatures on the top of Mt Kilimanjaro or Giles Weather Station Old Gunbarrel Hwy WA in Oz?
Sigh, when will they ever learn scientists are always fully aware of satellite instrumentation failure long before it happens?
