In the past 3 days, virtually every major, government-approved newspaper has run a short story claiming that the recent October (2015) was the “hottest on record.”
The official government claim is that the “normal” worldwide temperature for October is 1.04 degrees Celsius and that the recent month showed the largest “anomoly,” or was the farthest away from this supposed average of any other October on record.
Steven Goddard has now analyzed a sampling of the data behind this bizarre claim and found more data tampering.
Goddard reports that “[t]his kind of mind-blowing malfeasance would get [the government scientists at NASA] fired and probably escorted out of the building by security at many engineering companies.”
The “hottest on record” claims stem–as most suspected–from “adjusted” surface data, which barely measures the major land regions of the globe.
But as Goddard notes, “Satellites cover almost the entire planet several times a day, and they showed that October had only the 25th highest monthly anomaly [even as satellites have only been in the sky for 25 to 30 years],”
