Hide the Decline: Nepal Edition

There have been so many instances of errors data manipulation, and other shenanigans, from global warming alarmists that the rest of us can barely keep up with them; today’s example ups the number of my posts on this to thirty-two.  Still, every one needs proper exposure, lest the breadth and depth of this be hidden.

So, today, Willis Eschenbach (WUWT) discovers the IPCC’s claims of warming in Nepal, goes deep into the NASA-GISS data wickets, and finds (emphasis added) . . .

GISS has made a straight-line adjustment of 1.1°C in twenty years, or 5.5°C per century. They have changed a cooling trend to a strong warming trend.

In other words, NASA-GISS literally hid the decline in Nepal’s temperatures.

Eschenbach naturally wonders what else is wrong with the NASA-GISS data.

Once again we see huge adjustments made to individual temperature records without reason or justification. This means simply that until GISS are able to demonstrate a sound scientific foundation for their capricious and arbitrary adjustments, we cannot trust the final GISS dataset. Their algorithm obviously has significant problems that lead to the type of wildly unreasonable results seen above and in other temperature datasets, and they are not catching them. Pending a complete examination, we cannot know what other errors the GISS dataset might contain.

Lest anyone forget, this is the same GISS that got caught “smoothing” data in the North Pole.

  7. [...] This matters for three reasons: 1) as Homewood himself notes, the GHCN data is the source data for NASA-GISS and East Anglia University’s HADCRUT, the two largest and most prominent intellectual bases for global warming alarmism; 2) the Arctic Circle is not only the place that has seen the most “warming” over the years, but it is also the most sensitive region for its supposed after effects (due to ice melting, which is also not exactly going according to the alarmists’ plan, but that’s another story); and 3) this adds one more to the slew of errors, data manipulation, and other shenanigans, from global warming alarmists that the rest of us can chronicle over the years; the number of my posts alone on this subject now stand at a whopping thirty-five.
