[Vision2020] GISS Global May 2011 Temp. Color Map Shows Northwest US Cold Anomaly

Not surprisingly, I'm skeptical of the temperature anomalies map too.  Mainly 
because the highest temperatures, which count greatly towards these hottest year 
records, are at the poles where we coincidentally have the fewest thermometers.

What I'd like to see somebody do is take every thermometer in the data sets and 
find out exactly how well they correlate with their nearest neighbors.  Come up 
with a value between 0 and 1 for each thermometer within, say 100 miles of any 
one thermometer and use that data to come up with a radius within which the 
temperature is correlated with a factor over a given amount and can thus be 
assumed to cover.  Use that to produce a color-coded temperature anomalies map, 
leaving the blank spots where there is no reliable data intact.  Then, while 
you're at it, see how well that map correlates with the satellite lower 
troposphere temperature data.

Then, if you want to color in the gray areas, setup some more thermometers and 
start taking readings.  I'd prefer that our confidence on what we actually know 
was higher rather than assuming we know more than we actually do.

Anyway, just a thought.

Subject: [Vision2020] GISS Global May 2011 Temp. Color Map Shows Northwest US 
Cold Anomaly

I posted information on the Goddard Institute for Space Studies May
2011 global average temperature data yesterday.  But I thought it was
worth emphasizing that the color coded global temperature map GISS
displays on their website reveals the Northwest US as one of the
colder areas on Earth during May, colder compared to normative
temperature for each area (1951-1980 baseline), that is.

In fact, if I read this map correctly, the Northwest US shows the
largest area of deep blue in the Northern Hemisphere, which indicates
2-4 degree C. cold anomaly.  I had trouble finding any other area in
the Northern Hemispshere color coded deep blue... maybe a small area
off the east coast of Japan.

What is also noteworthy is the extreme temperature variations south of
South America extending into Antarctica, from very anomalous warm
(dark red or brown) to very anomalous cold (purple).  I'm skeptical of
such an extreme temperature variation over such a small distance.

everywhere!   Trust no one!

Gentlemen, the culmination of our great plan approaches fast. What the
Master called “the ordering of men’s affairs by a transcendent world
state, ordained by God and answerable to no man”, which we now know as
Communist World Government, advances towards its climax at Copenhagen.
For 185 years since the Master, known to the laity as Joseph Fourier,
launched his scheme for world domination, the entire physical science
community has been working towards this moment.

The early phases of the plan worked magnificently. First the Master’s
initial thesis - that the release of infrared radiation is delayed by
the atmosphere - had to be accepted by the scientific establishment. I
will not bother you with details of the gold paid, the threats made
and the blood spilt to achieve this end. But the result was the
elimination of the naysayers and the disgrace or incarceration of the
Master’s rivals. Within 35 years the 3rd Warden of the Grand Temple of
the Knights Carbonic (our revered prophet John Tyndall) was able to
“demonstrate” the Master’s thesis. Our control of physical science was
by then so tight that no major objections were sustained.

More resistence was encountered (and swiftly despatched) when we
sought to install the 6th Warden (Svante Arrhenius) first as professor
of physics at Stockholm University, then as rector. From this position
he was able to project the Master’s second grand law - that the
infrared radiation trapped in a planet’s atmosphere increases in line
with the quantity of carbon dioxide the atmosphere contains. He and
his followers (led by the Junior Warden Max Planck) were then able to
adapt the entire canon of physical and chemical science to sustain the
second law.

Then began the most hazardous task of all: our attempt to control the
instrumental record. Securing the consent of the scientific
establishment was a simple matter. But thermometers had by then become
widely available, and amateur meteorologists were making their own
readings. We needed to show a steady rise as industrialisation
proceeded, but some of these unfortunates had other ideas. The global
co-option of police and coroners required unprecedented resources, but
so far we have been able to cover our tracks.

The over-enthusiasm of certain of the Knights Carbonic in 1998 was
most regrettable. The high reading in that year has proved impossibly
costly to sustain. Those of our enemies who have yet to be silenced
maintain that the lower temperatures after that date provide evidence
of global cooling, even though we have ensured that eight of the ten
warmest years since 1850 have occurred since 2001(10). From now on we
will engineer a smoother progression.

Our co-option of the physical world has been just as successful. The
thinning of the Arctic ice cap was a masterstroke. The ring of secret
nuclear power stations around the Arctic Circle, attached to giant
immersion heaters, remains undetected, as do the space-based lasers
dissolving the world’s glaciers.

Altering the migratory and reproductive patterns of the world’s
wildlife has proved more challenging. Though we have now asserted
control over the world’s biologists, there is no accounting for the
unauthorised observations of farmers, gardeners, bird-watchers and
other troublemakers. We have therefore been forced to drive migrating
birds, fish and insects into higher latitudes, and to release several
million tonnes of plant pheromones every year to accelerate flowering
and fruiting. None of this is cheap, and ever more public money,
secretly diverted from national accounts by compliant governments, is
required to sustain it.

The co-operation of these governments requires unflagging effort. The
capture of George W. Bush, a late convert to the cause of Communist
World Government, was made possible only by the threatened release of
footage filmed by a knight at Yale, showing the future president
engaged in coitus with a Ford Mustang. Most ostensibly-capitalist
governments remain apprised of where their real interests lie, though
I note with disappointment that we have so far failed to eliminate
Vaclav Klaus. Through the offices of compliant states, the Master’s
third grand law has been accepted: world government will be
established under the guise of controlling manmade emissions of
greenhouse gases.

Keeping the scientific community in line remains a challenge. The
national academies are becoming ever more querulous and greedy, and
require higher pay-offs each year. The inexplicable events of the past
month, in which the windows of all the leading scientific institutions
were broken and a horse’s head turned up in James Hansen’s bed, appear
to have staved off the immediate crisis, but for how much longer can
we maintain the consensus?

Knights Carbonic, now that the hour of our triumph is at hand, I urge
you all to redouble your efforts. In the name of the Master, go forth
and terrify.

Professor Ernst Kattweizel, University of Redcar. 21st Grand Warden of
the Temple of the Knights Carbonic.”
