Image: Study Finds Temperature Adjustments Account For ‘Nearly All Of The Warming’ In Climate Data (2017)

Not only are the “adjustments” suspect, the temperature reconstructions are a complete and utter joke. Just look at the “Hockeystick” graph. The thing “doglegs” 2 times EXACTLY when the construction methodology changes.

Amazing how a break in slope appears when they switch methodologies from tide gauges to satellites, including adding a completely fake GIA (global isostatic adjustment) – which if it was legitimate, would have been equally valid for the tide gauge measurements.
The above two quotes document two different applications of data manipulation fraud on two different climate datasets from two different sources.
The first is in reference to global temperature data and the construction of the debunked “Hockeystick” chart, and the second is the global sea level data.
The quotes are from two totally independent sources, looking at totally different datasets, and identifying the identical pattern of data fraud. If it isn’t fraud, it is at least criminal incompetence.
Facts are, anyone with even an elementary understanding of working with datasets should know that if the behavior of the data suddenly changes after an “adjustment,” then something is likely wrong with the adjustment.
The likelihood of the underlying variable suddenly changing behavior to correspond exactly with the application of an “adjustment” is negligible, especially with global macro variables like global temperature and sea level.
“Adjustments” can’t CAUSE the underlying variable to alter its behavior, yet that is what the timing of alteration of a slope implies.
Something impacted the variable at exactly the same time the date adjustment was applied. It makes even less sense if one is dealing with a historical dataset and apply the “adjustment” to only parts of the dataset.
Additionally, there is nothing that can be tied back to CO2 that would ever cause a sudden and rapid change in temperature or sea level. CO2 increases at a near-linear rate and lends itself to gradual changes, not sudden slope changing shocks.
In fact, CO2’s absorption shows a logarithmic decay, so if it did ever cause a “dogleg” it would be to slow the accent, not increase it.
