Zeke’s Nature Trick

Real Science

Zeke wants me to use temperature anomalies instead of absolute temperatures. Here is why you can’t do that.

The graph below shows how NCDC tampers with the US temperature record, to create a non-existent warming trend.

Here is NCDC’s 1991 version of US temperatures in absolute temperatures.

The next graph shows the NCDC 1991 version and 2014 version in absolute temperatures. They have cooled the past.

Now look what happens if I use temperature anomalies, as Zeke demands. As long as they cool all of the years during the baseline period by an approximately equal amount, most of the data tampering during that period is hidden.

The trick NCDC pulls is to stop cooling temperatures after the end of the baseline period. This allows them to create a huge fake warming in recent years, which is largely hidden using anomalies.

By using Zeke’s method, the data tampering becomes invisible. Is it his goal…
