Global warming is a seriously hot topic; every day there’s a new report claiming that humans are to blame for climate change. According to the NOAA in their latest press briefing, levels of carbon dioxide are to blame for the “hottest year ever,” as reported by Real Climate Science. Yet, a closer look at the NOAA’s own data shows that in reality, there has been no warming for the last 58 years.

In their press briefing, the NOAA included a graph of the last 37 years – but stated that they have a 58-year-long temperature record, their “evidence” of global warming. However, the earlier data that they conveniently missed off the graph shows as much pre-1979 cooling as post-1979 warming, according to Real Climate Science. In fact, it seems that the earth’s atmosphere has not warmed at all since the late 1950s.
So, the NOAA’s own data actually shows that there has been no warming for the last 58 years, but they have tried to cover that up by only showing part of the graph.
Questions are being asked
According to Hoax News, congress is looking to investigate the latest NOAA study, and has issued subpoenas to the Obama Administration. Lamar Smith, chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, has requested that the NOAA hand over their scientific data as well as any internal communications between employees involved in their study.
Smith argues that “when an agency decides to alter the way it has analyzed historical temperature data for the past few decades, it’s crucial to understand on what basis those decisions were made.”
According to American Thinker, NASA are regularly stating that certain years are “the hottest on record” – but only have historical data dating to 1880. There has actually been a climate change trend dating back to before 1880, and predating any increases in carbon dioxide. In fact, it seems that NASA’s own scientists actually debunked global warming in a recent study that tracked infrared emissions from the earth’s upper atmosphere during and after a recent solar storm.
Their study found that the vast majority of energy was reflected out into space rather than down to earth. This reveals a cooling effect that completely contradicts NASA’s own reports that greenhouse gases are the cause of global warming, with carbon dioxide and nitric oxide actually reflecting heating energy away from the Earth’s surface rather than absorbing it.
Popular Climate Change Myths
Before the industrial revolution the Earth had a stable climate
Incorrect. In fact the Earth’s climate has always changed and it always will, according to GlobalResearch.
Data shows that the Earth is warming
Incorrect. Actually, if you look at accurate temperature measurements made from weather balloons and satellites over the last 60 years, you will see that they show no atmospheric warming since 1958. Despite the government using more than $50 billion of taxpayers’ money to search for evidence in support of climate change since 1990, no accurate human signal has been identified.
Carbon dioxide is the most important greenhouse gas
Incorrect. Water vapor is the most important greenhouse gas – accounting for at least 70 percent of the greenhouse effect. Carbon dioxide actually only contributes 26 percent to the total greenhouse effect.
The average global temperature is increasing
Incorrect. Within error bounds, the average global temperature has actually not increased since 1995, and has been declining since 2002, despite the continuing increase in atmospheric CO2.
What to believe
Science is funded by the government – and when that happens, as stated by President Eisenhower, it becomes less scientific and more political. According to American Thinker, “the Democrats believe, and the Republicans are skeptical. … Neither party pays much attention to the scientific facts.”
The NOAA is not being totally transparent about its own data and the ways in which its reports have been created, so what do they have to hide? Surely if they were 100 percent sure about the data they are reporting, they wouldn’t be keeping back charts that demonstrate there has been no warming for 58 years?
