NASA says the planet was hotter than September 2014 by 0.004 degrees Celcius. June 2016 figures have been downgraded to third warmest ever, but they omit that they are only reporting on records post 2000, i.e. “in this century” which somehow morphed into “in history.”

“This makes it the 11th of last 12 months to break temperature records so Federal meteorologists say Earth’s 16-month streak of record high temperatures is finally over.”  But why have we been reading about the 18 year decline and how many of said records were for lower-than-normal temperatures?

“The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says last month’s 60.6 degrees F (15.9 Celsius) was merely the second hottest September on record for the globe.”  Why do so many references say the 1930’s decade was the hottest on record?

“However NASA, which averages global temperature differently, considers last month as record hot.”  They measure them differently OK.  They have been caught several times faking the data.

“That’s slightly cooler than the September record set last year. But it was warmer than the 20th century average. NOAA climate scientist Jessica Blunden says a lack of a record doesn’t reflect an end to global warming.”  Jessica dear, if there were an end to global warming you would be unemployed.  Could that have anything to do with it?   Do you have any idea of how many Ph.D.s this is keeping employed?  “Climate change” is a full employment program for Ph.D. scientists of all kinds.

“Natural variability means not every month sets records, but the space agency’s list doesn’t have the same big hot streak. It didn’t consider June as record hot. Records go back to 1880.”  But you ignore the 1930’s decade and 1934 as the hottest year on record.

Jessica, the natural variability you note is more in your method than in the variations of nature.  Never forget that temperature is not a physical quantity, but a measure of molecular activity and very much subject to the “wobbles” of nature.

“According to NASA’s calculations, September 2016’s temperature was a razor-thin 0.004 degrees Celsius warmer than the previous warmest September in 2014.  The record-warm September means 11 of the past 12 consecutive months dating back to October 2015 have set new monthly high-temperature records.”

Madame: Where the thermometers you use have their finest graduations in degrees and it is standard practice to limit their reportable accuracy to 0.2 Celsius degree, how do you come up with 0.004 Celsius degree?  You are claiming 50 times the accuracy possible.  That leaps from the page for any scientist.

“The monthly analysis by the GISS team is assembled from publicly available data acquired by about 6,300 meteorological stations around the world, ship and buoy-based instruments measuring sea surface temperature, and Antarctic research stations.”

Yes, you people are notorious for picking station sets that give you what you want.  One had a fast-food restaurant start-up next to it and the heat exhaust from the hamburger grills were aimed at your temperature recording station.  That is not only a big “Whopper.”  It made your chart until found out by a “denier” you would put in jail.

“The modern global temperature record begins around 1880 because previous observations didn’t cover enough of the planet to be representative statistically. Monthly analyses are updated when additional data become available, and the results are subject to change.”  Madame: They certainly are and you have been changing them to your, and Mr. Obama’s, liking, but gotten caught every time!

“Updates to the input data have meant that June 2016, previously reported to have been the warmest June on record, was in GISS’s updated analysis, the third warmest June behind 2015 and 1998 after receiving additional temperature readings from Antarctica.”   Madame: We do not think so as 1934 beat any year we know as the all-time recorded record was set in July of 1934 and GISS, Jim Hansens old bureau before he retired with his millions in awards, grants, fees, commissions and royalties, has been caught several times faking data.  Most recently that from their Peruvian station.

“The late reports lowered the June 2016 anomaly by 0.05 degrees Celsius to 0.75. Monthly rankings are sensitive to updates in the record, and our latest update to mid-winter readings from the South Pole has changed the ranking for June,” said GISS director Gavin Schmidt, and continuing. We continue to stress that while monthly rankings are newsworthy, they are not nearly as important as long-term trends. Just weeks ago August tied July as the hottest month ever recorded, keeping up an alarming trend that has seen eleven consecutive months of record-breaking temperatures.”  Madame: This is simply not true.  1934 set all such records.

“Last month was hotter than the previous warmest August, in 2014, by 0.16°C according to NASA – and it’s passed the mean temperatures from 1951-1980 by nearly a full degree.”  Madam:   I think you mean “past” and not “passed” or insert a “has.” Again, your records are as sloppy as your language and 1934 set all the records.

“The researchers have created a new visualization to show how dramatically the temperatures have climbed since scientists began tracking this data, revealing a long-term warming trend over the past century.”  Yes and many of those records have been doctored as has been shown by several independent meteorologists.


A new NASA study has revealed the dangers of climate change are already affecting humanity and led to the death of hundreds of people across Europe sixteen years ago.

“A heatwave in 2003 killed 506 people in Paris and 315 in London, experts have said in a new study. A fifth of those deaths can be blamed on man-made pollution. The study led by University of Oxford scientists said there were 315 heat-related deaths in London as Europe experienced its hottest summer on record, out of which 64 were caused by climate change.”

We can only wonder how many deaths were caused by “climate un-change.”  How many died of Temperature Boredom Syndrome, TBS, for which there is no known TV commercial cure or nostrum. In fact most of those people probably would have died whatever was happening to the thermometer.

“The study was the first to calculate the number of premature deaths, link to air pollution and warned heatwaves will become more common and more severe in the future due to the activities of man.” We also wonder how many generations will pass before people look back on our TV medication commercials with the same disdain we had for “snake oil” salesmen in movies set in 19th century. With all the cautions including “…thoughts of suicide” who would ever want to take any of that junk?

“The graph reveals the temperature anomalies dating all the way back to 1880, when the global temperature record began. This past August marks the hottest month in 136 years of observation.”  Not true as the real data show:

“Monthly rankings, which vary by only a few hundredths of a degree, are inherently fragile,’ says Gavin Schmidt, director at the NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

We stress that the long-term trends are the most important for understanding the ongoing changes that are affecting our planet. Seasonal temperatures usually reach their highest in July, the researchers explain, but this year, August was so warm that the two months tied, with last month being 0.98°C warmer than the mean August temperatures from 1951-1980.

“The analysis was conducted with data from roughly 6,300 meteorological stations around the world.”

Yes, and independent studies show that NASA picked stations where urbanization put those stations in “heat islands” that are considerably warmer than the surrounding environment.

“According to the researchers, 2016 is set to be a record-breaking year entirely given the January-August trend. In a tweet, Schmidt says there is more than 99 percent chance that this will be the case.

This comes after it was revealed that July was the hottest month on record, despite the fading of a strong El Nino, which causes global temperatures to rise.”  Yes, El Nino’s cause global temperatures to rise, but they are caused by volcanoes in the deepest of all oceans, the Indian Ocean, where they go undetected, but their heat does not.

“The month was 1.51°F (0.84°C) warmer than the global average between 1950 and 1980, and they say it was 0.18 degrees warmer than the previous records seen in July 2011 and July 2015.  NASA declared the first half of 2016 to have been the warmest six months on record, as many parts of the world experienced ‘oppressive’ levels of heat this summer, according to Nasa’s Earth Observatory.”  The chart above shows an erratic record with bumps, up but the overall trend is clearly down.

“In June and July people living in Siberia, the Middle East and large areas of North America faced extreme heatwaves. The US’s three largest metropolitan areas – New York, Los Angeles and Chicago – all experienced heatwave alerts in July as well. California is also in the grips of its worst drought in decades.”  There will be events of this kind within any long trend, but we maintain, the overall trend is down and the drought in California is consistent with that idea as the colder air off the North Pacific is carrying much less moisture than would warmer water.

“Parts of Siberia, where the weather is normally relatively cool, saw temperatures more typically found in the tropics. Hot weather melted the permafrost in the Yamal Peninsula to reveal an infected carcass of a reindeer, triggering a major outbreak of anthrax.”  This is one event regarding one dead animal and has no place in a discussion of long term trends.

“Kuwait recorded a temperature of 129.2°F (54°C) on July 21 in what may be the hottest temperature on record in the Eastern Hemisphere if it is confirmed. According to Dr Schmidt, ‘The planet is getting warmer. It’s important for what it tells us about the future.” It is amazing an academic with a Ph.D. would cite one event as predictive!  That in itself tells us he is reaching too far.

The sad truth of the matter is that NASA has gone to the dark side of science, virtually all the way back to the days of alchemists claiming they could turn lead to gold with the yolks of Griffin eggs. The Griffin is mythical bird just as “anthropogenic global warming” is NASA’s mythical bird.

Adrian Vance

Trained as a science teacher, with eight years classroom experience, he has been writing professionally since the age of 15. He was the youngest person to be published in Journal of the Illinois Academy of Science at 17 as a result of a paper he wrote suggesting a revision in the science teaching curriculum. Publication was accidental as his teacher headed the selection committee and his paper was sent to the printer in error. Nonetheless, it received positive response. It proposed teaching General Science, then Physics followed by Chemistry with Biology in the senior year given the then new molecular focus in Biology. During his college years he worked on the school newspaper, primarily as a photographer and did an occasional feature, some of which caused him to be called to the Dean's office. "You don't like the way we do things here?" was the usual opening remark followed by the expected suggestion. After his third year, exhausted and without direction, he left for one year, but returned, when Sputnik and Admiral Rickover's books documented a crisis in American education. He felt called to teach and completed a B.S. in Physical Science at Illinois State University with a major in chemistry, minor in biology, near minors physics and education. He did graduate work in both Illinois and California completing a California Life Diploma teaching credential in 1962. While teaching he saw many needs and opportunities in educational publishing so he wrote and produced educational materials, primarily filmstrips and sound recordings. He also wrote for photographic magazines as film work put him in touch with many photographic and production problems. He has 325 screen credits in educational, industrial film and filmstrip as a writer-producer. In 1976 he won the Learning Magazine “Best of the Year” award for his “You in the Universe” filmstrip series and the New York Film and Television Festival Silver Medal for “An Introduction to Cells” filmstrip series. For a partial database of Adrian’s publications please click on and you will see them listed by series title and publisher. Each series title included four to 30 filmstrips and all are not fully listed in this database. The grand total is over 800. Over that 30 years Mr. Vance also wrote other material: two books, published in New York: “UFO’s: The Eye and the Camera” for Barlenmir House and “Audiovisual Production” for Amphoto Books. He wrote and illustrated over 100 features and columns for photography magazines. He was a Founding Contributing Editor for Peterson's PhotoGraphic Magazine and the West Coast Editor of Popular Photography from 1974 to 1978, writing a monthly column for the magazine. As a result of underwater photography work he contributed to SKIN DIVER magazine in the 70's. His "Timing Waves to Enter The Sea" article, first appearing in SKIN DIVER, is now a chapter in a classified U.S. Navy Seals training manual. "UFO's, The Eye and the Camera" documents his "Two channel information theory for the analysis of events simultaneously seen and photographed." It is the first comparative analysis of vision and photography written with the idea of combining information from both sources into a single analysis that can be used scientifically and forensically. Mr. Vance is also credited with solving the mystery of how complete maps of Earth were drawn in antiquity and he rediscovered Captain Cook's secret method of locating Pacific islands so well their positions have only recently been improved. He is cited with discovering the method in the seventh edition of "The Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings," by Dr. Charles Hapgood and he later contributed to a definitive article on cartography in antiquity for The Smithsonian Magazine as they confirmed his method. On February 19, 1976 Mr. Vance got a “Certificate of Appreciation” award from the Los Angeles Police Department “in grateful recognition of his generosity in make available to officers of this Department the talents and training of his German Shepherd, Boris. The ready willingness of Mr. Adrian Vance to become involved and to make available his valuable dog in a potentially hazardous situation deserves the gratitude and approbation of the entire Los Angeles Police Department.” This incident was critical to the LAPD administration’s realization that trained dogs could be of value in police work and they are now employed by the LAPD. When the computer replaced film the school market audio-visual field he switched horses at full gallop and produced 460 computer educational disk systems for the Apple II computer over 15 years. During that time he became a professional broadcaster in the 90's to promote the State Water bond issue in Santa Barbara, California as he felt it was critical for the town. He was publicly credited for having been one of the top ten reasons the measure passed thanks to his book “Drought in Paradise” and radio work. The collapse of his software business when Apple Computer discontinued the "II" machine line in 1995 crystallized the failure of his second marriage. With no clear direction in the school market supplemental materials field he sought a career in broadcasting in Las Vegas, Nevada doing shows on both KDWN and KXNT. This was unsatisfying due to the "star" economics of commercial radio where a few performers make millions and everyone else starves. Mr. Vance has also been a day trader, strategist, system developer and author on the equities markets and trading. He now trades stock, land and develops residential property. His website and trading information service, "The Stock Surfer" was a leading Internet service for seven years. He has been developing “The Young Americans” series of Young Adult novels promoting conservative values as well as his personal memoir, “A Long Way From Normal.” You can buy Adrian Vance’ books or downloads at December 21, 2010 he was awarded US. Patent 7,855,061 for his “Fuel Farm” that makes a gasoline equivalent 100 Octane fuel, butanol, from CO2, water and sunlight with algae and bacteria.
