Worst Frosts Hit Brazil Adjusted Away!

August 15, 2021

By Paul Homewood





 You will recall this story from 1st August, regarding the coldest weather in decades which has been affecting Brazil for much of July. Strangely the fraudsters at NOAA have decided that last month was warmer than average!

Map showing temperature percentiles for July 2021

Despite having no data for much of the country, and most of the data they do have shows it has been a cold month:



And they call it science!

    Anecdotal I know but…..Looking at Norway on the very coarse digital display (which makes me wonder how many fudge stations they have per pixel?)….I see Norway is shown as “above average in July”.
    Oh! If only I had known that I would not have put my heating on because I thought it was colder than normal! NOAA could save me a fortune because clearly me sitting shivering was all in my mind.

    Today and yes this is flaming August” we have had a “high” of 15 degrees during the day and 10 degrees projected during the night. The signs of autumn have been here for more than 2 weeks already..

      Why do you think there are stations in the pixels?
      Stations!? We don’t need no stinking stations.

    Interesting how much “Record Warmest and Much Warmer than Average” percentiles occur offshore especially that very big blob in the S Atlantic. Exactly how many verified hard data points went into providing data over such a vast area of ocean where no one can challenge them?

      I seem to remember that when the new sexy temperature buoys failed to give the correct warming signal over much of the oceans, the powers that be then went back to the old fashioned, and demonstrably unreliable, ship intake/bucket over the side system of olde to give them the answers they wanted. Funny that. A cynic might infer that they didn’t really want the right answers!

    It is looking more and more like a bubble. Bubbles burst, eventually.

      I just feel that sometimes we need bigger and sharper pins to burst them.
      But think Jonesie: ‘They don’t like it up ’em!’

        Unfortunately its more of a belief system with its own theology and college of cardinals.
        I saw a professor of religion say that a hieghtened religious belief begins from around 15 to say 35 and then again after the 60s. Which fits the profile of the most ardent warming believers

    The Green Blob is really a green bubble, and like the famous South Sea Bubble of 1720, Tulip Mania of1637, and the Darien scheme of the 1690’s, it will collapse.

    The shysters profiting from the Green will still get their pound of flesh by way of obscene subsidies courtesy of the poor taxpayer.

      I’d rather they got an ounce of lead rather than a pound of flesh.

    Does anyone know where to find the 1981-2010 base period reference temperature for the Land-Only departure? And how it compares with the Land & Ocean value? Is there an Ocean Only departure? I commonly read departure…”from the long term mean”. Whatever that is. It’s hard to find the various peas under the different shells.

    lyric from Tommy
    “I’m your wicked Uncle Ernie
    I’m glad you won’t see or hear me
    As I fiddle about, fiddle about, fiddle about”

    Fiddle about, adjusting the temperature records
    .. Fiddle about, cherrypicking the ones to use for PR

    Here is OneNation’s Malcolm Robert’s excoriating the Senate in Oz. Wish we had a few of him in my neck of the woods.

    Plenty of coffee say the warmunists. We’ll see, when the coffee prices spike.

      Went to dinner on Friday with some French friends here in the SW of France. They are talking about there being no grape harvest at all! We have leaves falling already from some trees and there’s virtually no sign of grapes on the vines. Bizarrely the apples are a month ahead though. The only thing keeping the average temperatures anywhere close to averages are a few very hot days every 2-3 weeks.

    Seems to be apparent that the averages are only above average in many places thanks to a small number of very hot days in many places, with the majority of days being below average by some significant amount. Pretty sure that’s not what the models predicted. These shirt but intense hot spells interspersed with much longer below average spells are certainly unusual but not what we are told is climate change.

      Which would be a result of the changed jetstream pattern that is bringing warm or cold depending on its direction.

      Another cool day in my corner of Surrey.

    Despite having no data for much of the country

    Do we know what, if any, relevant data on surface temperatures is available from satellites e.g. AIRS?

    The alarmists aren’t even pretending to be telling the truth now. Just blatantly lying. Is the alarmist bubble finally going to burst or is this just another false dawn? I’ve been expecting it for years but it continues not to happen. But the climate apocalypse continues not to happen too, they surely can’t go on being wrong forever.

    One issue that may be relevant is that the temperatures being plotted are the average temperature, not the minimum. It may well be that frosty nights turned into warm days, the frost must have been due to clear skies and light winds, both conducive to warm days.

    It is getting harder to check Tmax and Tmin, GHCNMv3 which had them is no longer being updated, version 4 is meant to cover them, but “coming soon” has now lasted for several years.

    This is precisely why I give no meritorious value to NOAA’s monthly temperature records. Everything colder than normal is weighted as normal, everything normal is weighted as above normal, and everything above normal is weighted warmest evah.

    As says in it’s headline Will the real hottest month on record please stand up? where they note —
    “As anyone who follows the climate news is aware, July 2021 was the hottest month on record for our torrid little orb, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), with a combined temperature 1.67 degrees F higher than the 20th century average of 60.4 F.
    NOAA noted in a Friday press release that the previous record was set in July 2016, and tied in 2019 and 2020. But as Bill Frezza, a sharp-eyed reader of Retraction Watch noticed, the agency’s website tells a different story. This press release, dated Aug. 15, 2019, and still live on, proclaims July 2019 to be the hottest month on record for the planet:

    The average global temperature in July was 1.71 degrees F above the 20th-century average of 60.4 degrees, making it the hottest July in the 140-year record, according to scientists at NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information. The previous hottest month on record was July 2016.

    See retactionwatch for the questions to NOAA’s press office, and what replies they got.
