#4. Stop lying about sea level. 80% of tide gauges show less rise than the official “global average”. Many tide gauges show no rise in sea level, and almost none show any acceleration over the past 20 years.

#5. Stop lying about drought. Droughts in the US are becoming less severe and less frequent, and the US has been wetter than normal over the past year.

#7. Stop tampering with temperature data.


#8. Stop making up thermometer data where it doesn’t actually exist


By following any one of the simple principles of scientific integrity, a climate scientist can be guaranteed to be ostracized, have their funding cut off, have web sites set up to personally attack them, get fired, and possibly have the president of the US smear them.

    It’s just easier to go along and collect a very nice pay check and be praised by your peers for your brilliance than to have a microgram of integrity.

      They are not at fault. Selfishness is a problem that plagues all mankind.

      However, there is reason to believe Stalin’s “Red Matrix of Deceit” – that geophysicists constructed for Stalin in 1945 to “save the world” – is finally crumbling:

      So Happy New Year ! The arrogant illusion of tyrannical control of the world will end when the benevolent Higher Power at the core of the Sun is revealed.

        “They are not at fault. Selfishness is a problem that plagues all mankind. ”

        They ARE at fault because it is their CHOICE to do what they do.

        • Gail Combs says:

          Correct we are each free to choose.

          Dr, Bill Gray
          Dr. Zbigniew Jaworowski
          Ernest Beck
          Dr. Happer
          Dr. Murry Salby
          Dr. Tim Ball
          Dr. Tom Segalstad

          Among others refused to submit to the bribes, peer pressure, firings and even lawsuits.

          The Climastropogists could have stood up for science. They could have stood for the betterment of civilization. At minimum they could have slid sideways into another field and stayed neutral. Instead they made the choice to prostitute themselves. They KNOW they have harmed, robbed and even killed people They know they have brought their countries to the brink of economic disaster. They know they committed fraud, and that is why Phil Jones was contemplating suicide when the e-mails came out.

          I have nothing but contempt for them. I hope they can be put on trial for fraud at a minimum or for man slaughter or treason. After the first deaths from ‘fuel poverty’ they had the chance to say ENOUGH and turned whistle blower. They did not therefore they are even more contemptible than the ‘facilitatiors’ in Hitler’s Germany.

  2. But but but climate science is different than other fields of study.
    They have no hope of accurately predicting climate with models, massaging the message is required to maintain the ‘climate shaman’ status.

  3. mtminer says:

    Nice MMA style ground and pound to end what is sure to be the warmest year on record according to the upper echelon of the new world order religion. Just remember “figures do not lie but liars figure”.

  4. Latitude says:

    Stop lying about sea level. 80% of tide gauges show less rise than the official “global average”…

    The Israeli study showed 65% of all tide gauges showed sea levels falling or static…..

  5. inMAGICn says:

    “Stop lying?”

    Don’t hold your breath…

  6. Eliza says:

    This is great. Send it to your warmist pals

  7. Steve Case says:

    Stop lying about the polar bears.

  8. GaryR says:

    They should also stop lying about tornados and hurricanes. It’s so easy to check tornado and hurricane frequency data for oneself, that it’s amazing they think they can get away with lies about that.

    • Andy DC says:

      Stop lying about typhoons. The frequency of severe typhoons was far greater in the 1970’s and 1980’s that it has been from 2000-2014.

  9. Steve Case says:

    Stop lying about ocean temperatures.

  10. Steve Case says:

    Stop lying about ocean acidification.

  11. Steve Case says:

    Stop lying about glacier fed rivers drying up.

  12. Steve Case says:

    Stop lying about the frequency of extreme weather.

  13. Steve Case says:

    Stop the periodic re-writing of historical satellite sea level data.

  14. Steve Case says:

    Stop indoctrinating school children with global warming theory.

  15. gator69 says:

    Stop squandering our national treasure.

  16. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    Unfortunately if the climateers actually were to take notice of all this climate data they would have to conclude that climate sensitivity is under 1 C/doubling. Which is harmless, since it is a logarithmic relationship. There isn’t enough fossil fuel in the ground to produce CO2 based warming of 2 C.

    In such light it was interesting yesterday that one of our more excitable climateers Prof Matthew England of UNSW acknowledged publicly that the PDO was responsible for the run up in global temperature during 1978-1998. He failed to make the connection with sensitivity, but what it shows is they know quite well that late 20thC warming was due to the ~60 year cycle, not CO2. No climate scientist could not make that connection in their own mind. So they can no longer even profess ignorance. Which confirms they are perpetuating CAGW for unscientific reasons.

  17. ossqss says:

  18. This is a good start to a list of all the lies peddled constantly by the Warmistas and Climateers, but it is just the tip of the iceberg.

  19. Fantastic! Thank you. And happy new year.

  20. Stop lying about people who disagree with you.

  21. ilma630 says:

    Regarding models: they should also stop pretending that increased model resolution provides a better result. It does not, as there’s no more real data going in, so more ‘invented’ data is used, making the result LESS reliable [h/t to Prof Tim Ball for making this point in his recent book.]. Why this very obvious point is missed by both the climate (so called) scientists and also the MSM beats me.

    • gator69 says:

      Apparently the alarmists have never heard of Bonini’s Paradox:
      “The less information a model carries about its subject, the less useful it’s going to be in helping someone understand that subject. And yet, the more information a model carries about its subject, the less useful it’s going to be in helping someone understand any single point of that subject.”

    • Gail Combs says:

      The IPCC point blank says their models are crap:

      …in climate research and modeling we should recognise that we are dealing with a complex non linear chaotic signature and therefore that long-term prediction of future climatic states is not possible

      IPCC 2001 section page 774

      Yet over the past 15 years we have been treated to more and more crap science and shriller cries of Doom.

  22. rah says:

    Never ever imply again that the man burning fossil fuels is going to cause a “run away green house effect” and become like the atmosphere on Venus which has about a 96% concentration of C02 under tremendous pressure, with clouds containing Sulfuric Acid and surface temp in excess of 460 C.

    • Jan Freed says:

      The temperature gains need not be so extreme as Venus’ for our Earthly goose to be cooked. We are headed for 4 deg C, 5 times current warming. Nature asks, “Feeling lucky, punk?”

      I know, why should I bother?

  23. Bad-Clown says:
  24. Jan Freed says:

    A lot of creative graph making here. Let’s just take #2, your precious hiatus, as an example of your intellectual integrity. And if #2 is in doubt, well..why spend any time on the rest of it?

    First, tell me IF warming stopped WHY did it stop? Did the sun cool in the last 18 years? Did CO2 stop absorbing IR? Did God just change His (Her) mind? Did a black hole suck heat out of the atmosphere? Or do you not “believe” in causation.

    OR, as the scientists discovered, have the oceans absorbed a bit more heat than usual due to changing wind patterns.

    Second, “is climate change, at last, over?” I am not convinced of that, as I have not seen any evidence of it. For example,

    The hiatus: Warming has stopped? Not.’’

    New study explains the role of oceans in global ‘warming hiatus’

    Hottest October And Year To Date On Record Globally, NOAA Reports

    Hottest 12 Months On Record: NOAA Data ‘Show No Pause In Warming’

    The global temperature data for 2013 are now published. 2010 and 2005 remain the warmest years since records began in the 19th Century. 1998 ranks third in two records, and in the analysis of Cowtan & Way, which interpolates the data-poor region in the Arctic with a better method, 2013 is warmer than 1998 (even though 1998 was a record El Nino year, and 2013 was neutral).

    • gator69 says:

      It is odd that with all of this ‘knowledge’, none of the climate models built upon this ‘foundation’ predicted the pause. Oh but they can hindcast! 😆

      • Gail Combs says:

        And the first ‘evidence’ she picks is Forbes- Peter Gleick the ‘ethics’ chairman who should be in jail for wire fraud.

        A History of Solar Activity over Millennia

        …The end of the Modern grand maximum of activity and the current low level of activity, characterized by the highest ever observed cosmic ray flux as recorded by ground-based neutron monitors, the very low level of the HMF and geomagnetic activity, should help to verify the connections between solar activity, cosmic ray fluxes, geomagnetic activity, the heliospheric magnetic field, and open field. Since some of these connections are somewhat controversial, these extreme conditions should help to quantify them better….

        Notice that sunspot number is only one measurement of solar activity. That paper is quite an interesting read. However since sunspots are what most people are familiar with I will stick with them.

        What the Warmists neglect is that the Modern grand maximum ended in cycle 22 not 23. 23 was a ‘transition cycle’ Notice 21 and 22 are ‘short’ cycles which is characteristic of strong cycles.
        Cycle 21 started in June 1976 and lasted 10 years and 3 months.
        Cycle 22 started in September 1986 and lasted 9 years and 8 months.
        Cycle 23 started in May 1996 and lasted 12 years and 6 months.
        Cycle 24 started in December 2008.
        Notice the starting minima of 21 and 22 are stronger than that of 23 and the start of 24 is scraping bottom.

        You can also see the change in albedo soon after the start of cycle 23.

    Great. He could add
    More new year’s resolutions to add to the list

    Stop lying about ‘ocean acidification’.
    Stop lying about the imminent destruction of the great barrier reef
    Stop lying about massive sea level rises
    Stop lying about 97% of scientists
    Stop lying about record temperatures
    Stop lying about bush fires being climate change
    Stop lying about drought being climate change
    Stop lying about floods being climate change
    Stop flying. Just stop flying. 30,000 people to Rio, Copenhagen, New York, Durban, Dubai, Lima.
    Stop buying up depressed beach front property, Tim and Al.”

  26. Gail Combs says:

    Perhaps we should put the whole list together and send it to each scientific society, each journal and the dean of each university, not to mention all the politicians.

    • Bubba Cow says:

      Sure, but the current dean at my former employment has been fired as she wouldn’t go along with the new prez. He wants a major in Criminal Investigations because of the popularity of CSI and spin-offs he thinks he can swindle tuition and loan moneys from uninformed high school grads,
      Happy New Year and thanks for your chemistry.

  27. Sums up the sorry pseudoscientific situation very well.

  28. Climatism says:

    Reblogged this on Climatism and commented:

    A dignified scientist / politician / journalist should read this post using basic scientific rigour to recognise the empirical evidence presented that massively contradicts the human CO2-derived “Global Warming” hypothesis/hysteria that has tragically become the greatest scientific scandal and subsequent environmental religion in the history of mankind.

    The very fact that the exact (climatic) opposites are now occurring of what the ‘experts’ predicted time and time again would happen, should be enough to blow this scam out of the ball park for good.

    The dignified and the “97%” consensus minions might perhaps take heed of the saying out of language taught to students of medicine ~ “There’s no such thing as truth in medicine, only current information.”

    Ditto climate.

    Stop lying and start practicing science, even if it means you got it wrong. After all, that is what science is all about – falsifying a hypothesis, in order to advance knowledge and learn.

  31. Eamon Butler says:

    Happy New Year everyone. This is a great compilation. It amazes me how the Cagw crowd are still in existence. But, Politics is all about spin and deception. Never mind the facts.

    All the best for 2015.
