The Anthropogenic Global Warming/Climate Change con-artists are having a bad year. The weather simply refuses to cooperate with them. But have no fear, these Bernie Madoff scam artists have absolutely no intention of packing their bags and admitting that they were wrong, or simply allow their dreams of controlling the worlds population through hysterical fear mongering.
In USHCN V1, older temperatures were considered good, but recent temperatures were adjusted upwards by about 0.5F. After 1990, no further adjustments were considered necessary.
That wasn’t getting the global warming marketing job done, so in USHCN V2 they did the exact opposite. Older temperatures are now cooled, with a hockey stick of adjustments after 1996. The total adjustment is now about 1.5 degrees F, 300% of the V1 adjustments.
Then along comes co-conspirator in crime, NOAA.
Last year was tied for the fourth warmest year on record around the world.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on Tuesday released its global temperature figures for 2013. The average world temperature was 58.12 degrees (14.52 Celsius) tying with 2003 for the fourth warmest since 1880.
NASA, which calculates records in a different manner, said Tuesday that 2013 was the seventh warmest on record, with an average temperature of 58.3 degrees (14.6 Celsius).
Both agencies said nine of the 10th warmest years on record have happened in the 21st century. The hottest year was 2010.
A global insurance firm says there were 41 billion-dollar weather disasters last year. Unlike 2012, most of the heat and disasters were outside the United States.
NOAA’s assertion, yea it basically comes down to, “Who are you going to believe, Us or your lying eyes. Meanwhile, this is what peoples lying eyes are telling them.

The nation’s capital was at a standstill Tuesday evening as snow continued falling at a rate of about an inch an hour — while commuters across the Northeast struggled to get home through blizzard-like conditions and snow coming down harder and faster than many people expected.
The wintry wallop brought more than a foot of snow in some areas and another blast of arctic air, snarling traffic, closing schools and shutting down the federal government.
As the wind blows the snow around, it makes for very difficult visibility on Long Island. NBC News’ Ron Mott reports from Syosset.
Initially forecast to be a modest blurt of cold weather, the system has intensified, unleashing wind-driven snow and frosty air on the Northeast Tuesday night into Wednesday.
The National Weather Service said Manalapan, N.J., got 15.5 inches of snow, Philadelphia got slightly more than a foot and Brookhaven, near Philadelphia’s airport, got 15. It said parts of New York City had 10 inches.
In D.C., most offices of the government were shut down Tuesday — although the Supreme Court justices did show up for work — and officials were asking residents to stay off the roads.
“We’ve had about 80+ calls for personal injury collisions today,” said Scott Graham, assistant chief of nearby Montgomery County, Md., Fire and Rescue, told NBCWashington. “Some of which have been very minor… turning out to be property damage; some more significant, with minor traumatic injuries, vehicles overturning.”
The capital was set to see about a half-foot of snow and wind gusts of 30 mph, while Boston could see around 8 inches and wind gusts up to 40 mph.
Meanwhile, governors in Delaware, New Jersey and New York on Tuesday afternoon declared states of emergency as blizzard conditions hit along the heavily populated Interstate 95 corridor.
“This winter storm will bring a one-two punch of snow and extreme cold. I urge all those in the affected regions to exercise caution, and avoid travel if possible,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.
New York broke three snowfall records Tuesday. And, for the first time since snow accumulation has been recorded in the 19th century, Philadelphia has had three 6-inch-or-greater snow events before Feb. 1.
NBC News’ Al Roker has the latest forecast as the storm continues to deepen, creating blizzard-like conditions. As the arctic air tunnels in, the snow will eventually end, but it will still be blowing and drifting.
“Every once in a while these little winter storms go bananas, and we think this might be the one,” said Kevin Roth, a lead meteorologist with the Weather Channel.
The storm could bring up to 14 inches of snow to Philadelphia and southern New England and up to a foot in New York City through the night, to be followed by bitter cold as arctic air from Canada streams in. Washington was expecting 4 to 8 inches.
In Maryland, 11 inches had accumulated in Northeast Heights.
