A record-low 759 tornadoes formed in the U.S. so far this year, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Storm Prediction Center (SPC). Through Oct. 3 of this year, SPC recorded two fewer tornadoes than the previous record-low of 761. Tornado activity has been unusually low in recent years, according to SPC data, which goes back 65 years. “This lack of tornadic storms in recent years should also correlate with lesser severe thunderstorm activity in general in the U.S., since the conditions which produce large hail and damaging winds are generally the same as are required for tornadoes,” Dr. Roy [...]
The US Energy Department is still running one of the top drivers of alarmist science for the United Nations.
Many research results published in scientific journals shouldn’t be trusted.
Over-reliance on computer simulations is a major problem in climate science. If those models are based on data that has been adjusted for political reason the problem worsens.
“Linking hurricane rainfall to global warming today (and even decades from now) based upon such a tiny contribution is misleading.”
CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell reveals the depths to which top bureaucrats at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) fudged data so they could falsely report that carbon dioxide emissions were causing massive acidification of the Earth's oceans and that ocean temperatures had warmed twice as much as honest data showed.
NOAA has posted some spectacularly speculative numbers claiming that Hurricane Harvey's record rainfall was so rare as to be unnatural. This is the attribution game; the new wave of alarmist pseudoscience.
All of this alarmist attribution stuff is junk science personified. We are seeing nothing that is outside of normal natural variability. As my father used to say, figures don't lie but liars sure can figure.
NOAA's Climate.gov website rivals NASA's, in more ways than one. There is actually a rivalry between the two agencies to see who can be the most alarmist.
A new study found adjustments made to global surface temperature readings by scientists in recent years “are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data.”
NOAA's global and US temperature estimates have become highly controversial. The core issue is accuracy.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recently posted a summary of research on the link between global warming and hurricanes, concluding it is “premature” to say human activities are making storms more powerful.
CAFCT policy analyst Larry Bell reports that the Trump Administration is taking serious aim at waste, fake science, and mission creep at the nation's executive branch bureaucracies -- notably the EPA, NASA, NOAA, and the Department of Energy. Politicized climate "research" is being defunded, and the President wants to return NASA to its primary focus on space exploration. There will no longer be wasteful outright grants and unsecured loans to green energy comanies.
No plans to retract study after the former principal scientist at the National Climatic Data Center went public with complaints that NOAA scientists put a ‘thumb on the scale’ to get results that showed more global warming since 1998.
It appears government climate researchers have been making "assumptions" and "adjusting" the data to suit their narrative; namely cooling the past and warming the present. Confirmation of this data tampering may now be at hand.
