Cooling Masked From Public

Posted by Jeff Id on November 22, 2009

These emails don’t often need commentary, here are the main dogs commenting on how temps have gone down. Mike Mann, Gavin Schmidt and others at RC as well as Tamino at Open Mind have been working feverishly to cover this up. A blogger Deep Climate snipped my post for even suggesting that preferred filters were used. He didn’t want anyone to suggest that the elites would exaggerate the trend. Well here it is right in plain sight.

Statistically significant cooling being hidden on purpose – by alleged scientists!!

Busted again.

Yeah, it wasn’t so much 1998 and all that that I was concerned about, used
to dealing with that, but the possibility that we might be going through a
longer – 10 year – period of relatively stable temperatures beyond what you
might expect from La Nina etc

Speculation, but if I see this as a possibility then others might also.
Anyway, I’ll maybe cut the last few points off the filtered curve before I
give the talk again as that’s trending down as a result of the end effects
and the recent cold-ish years.

Enjoy Iceland and pass on my best wishes to Astrid.

    Be awkward will it? I’ll say!
    Someone’s taking The Mickey here!
    It’s going to take some doing, but once all these bits are sewn together, there’s going to be a lot of people with very red faces.
    The new Euro High Head President, a faceless Belgian beaurocrat, wants to fund the EU via carbon taxes, so I’ll expect a very, very muted response from the political mainstream.
    If this can of worms does burst open, then I also forsee the scientists being hung out to dry by the politicians.

    There it is. In black and white. Cherry picking Team style.

  3. […] Buona permamenza laggiù e salutami A., fa uno, e l’altro di rimando, ah, farà freddo e ci sarà la neve, ma i prezzi sono buoni persino se hai le sterline. Ah, a proposito, quando mi chiedono perchè le temperature non salgono più da una decina d’anni, ho sempre a portata di mano le medie 1991-2000 e 2000-2007/8, differiscono solo per 0.2°C che è più o meno quello che ci si dovrebbe aspettare. E ancora l’altro, Sì, sono abituato ad avere a che fare con tutta la faccenda del 1998, ma la possibilità che si stia andando verso un periodo più lungo – 10 anni – al di là di quanto ti aspetti dalla Nina. Sarà speculazione, ma se questa possibilità la vedo io, c’è il rischio che la vedano anche altri. Ad ogni modo, penso che taglierò gli ultimi punti dalla curva prima del mio prossimo discorso, in modo che quel trend verso il basso sembri l’effetto della fine della serie, piuttosto che il risultato dei recenti anni freddi ((  […]

    Plenty of peer-reviewed reports and articles do show the sort of secular and local cooling trends which you are fond of of here. The “Yamal” stuff, however, is stolen data which has not gone through QAQC. It probably was not published for good reasons, about which McIntyre, Montford, Monckton, et al. have never bothered to inquire.

  6. John F. Pittman said

    Jeff it is hard to go anywhere on the internet and not find something that supports your and Steve’s work on how important Yamal actually is. Even this suppression of recent temperatures gives support how important it is to the models to have the correct interdecadal variance or their predictions are essentially as you, Lucia, and Steve have shown “”if recent cooling is not inconsistant with the models” it means “no warming is not inconsistant with the models” as your and Steve’s comment indicate.

    #6 Kind words John.

    I think SteveM deserves the vast majority of the points in my case though. He has obviously been a primary focus of these guys for some time and I wouldn’t even be doing this if it weren’t for CA.

    SteveM has a paper which is being blocked by irrational review right now. It’s not the first but hopefully this will put some pressure on the editors and reviewers to put their bias in their pockets. If others had a hand in choosing the reviewers it also has implications.

    I agree with this being a shining vidication of SteveM’s work! If you read the RC/Tamino blogs with any regularity, you’d think that Steve was a doofus. What we now see is that “the team” was scrambling like crazy to everything Steve did.

    Hardly the reaction you would have expected if Steve really was a doofus!

  9. Bernie said

    Thanks for the info on Steve’s paper. It would be a travesity if the poor behavior continues and inappropriately blocks the article. Given the mindset and personal animosity exhibited in the emails and that is still evident at RealClimate – I am not going to hold my breadth. Let’s hope some grownups show up to ensure that the reviews are conducted appropriately.

  10. Jeff Id said

    #9, It’s just my interpretation, there is a lot more to be said on this and I’m already not aware of all the detail. Accepted or not, it’s going to be an interesting post on CA when it happens.

  11. I’ll expect a very, very muted response from the political mainstream.

    Rules for Mass Mind Control Used by the CRU Found in the Hacked Files!

    Some people are better teachers and trendsetters than others. Targeting these people will ensure that messages seem more trustworthy and are transmitted more effectively.”

    Under the header of the third ‘Rule’, “linking policy and communication” it is stated that “everyone must use a clear and consistent explanation of climate change” and “government policy and communications on climate change must be consistent.” Indeed. If the lie is to be sold effectively, they must all communicate the same lie. How to best sell it?

    -“Create a trusted, credible, recognized voice on climate change.”

    -“Use emotions and visuals: another classic marketing tool: changing behaviour by disseminating information doesn’t always work, but emotions and visuals usually do.”

    It seems that people have been listening. The advertisement of global warming is thick with apocalyptic visuals, ranging from polar bears crashing to their doom and a large family of hurricanes plaguing the continental United States.

    Last but not least, the old Edward Bernays-trick is being proposed, the power of repetition:

    “The communications must be sustained over time: all the most successful public awareness campaigns have been sustained consistently over many years.”

    Indeed they have. The good news is that with the unveiling of the recent e-mails and documents the lies are being exposed in such a quick pace, the propaganda will be hard pressed to keep up. For the full eye opening story go to:
