The NY Times tries to scare us again with a fake ‘climate change’ graphic

(National SentinelHoax: The mac daddy of all Left-wing establishment media, The New York Times, just can’t stop trying to convince everyone that hot, summer days mean the Earth is warming to the point where we’re all going to burn up soon.

Over the weekend, the Times published yet another story, this time in conjunction with ‘scientists’ at the Climate Impact Lab, purporting to show that recent trends in warmer summers mean that ‘global warming’ is real and we’d better do something about it.

The “group of climate scientists, economists and data analysts from the Rhodium Group, the University of Chicago, Rutgers University and the University of California, Berkeley” created a graphic allegedly showing readers how many more days at or above 90 degrees they could expect today in their hometown since they were born, The Daily Caller reported.

But their data only goes back to 1960. What’s more, climate scientists are already questioning the data’s accuracy, which was based on — you guessed it — climate modeling.

“Added up the 90-degree days in Atlanta because I didn’t trust the climate dataviz … average of 46 during the past 40-years or so. Right on target in 2018 with 48. The NY Times system started their dataviz analysis in 1960 — wonder why?” wrote meteorologist Ryan Maue.

Here’s how the Times’ graphic depicted temps in Atlanta:

And yet, there is a difference between the observed temperatures and what the Times reported. Why?

The DC reports further:

One reason is because TheNYT uses a “21-year rolling average” to tell readers how many hot days they could expect the year they were born — not the actual number that were observed.




The second reason is because TheNYT’s data past 2000 is blended with a climate model tuned to future climate projections. After 2020, TheNYT notes, “the data uses a mixed climate model that captures a broad range of extreme temperature responses.”

“The future projection shown here assumes countries will curb greenhouse gas emissions roughly in line with the world’s original Paris Agreement pledges,” TheNYT notes.

What’s also apparent is the starting point for TheNYT’s data is in 1960 at the beginning of a rash of years with relatively few days with soaring temperatures. By starting their data in 1960, TheNYT ignores the decades before with a number of 90 degree days on par with today.

However, TheNYT uses this model-blended data to claim Atlanta “is likely to feel this extra heat even if countries take action to lower their emissions by the end of the century.” The paper quotes experts who warn that human health and agriculture will suffer as a result.

“If it’s also humid, humans can’t physiologically evaporate sweat as easily, and we can’t cool down our bodies effectively,” Climate Impact Lab’s Kelly McCusker told TheNYT.

“Food, water, energy, transportation, and ecosystems will be affected both in cities and the country. High-temperature health effects will strike the most vulnerable,” echoed the group’s leader Cynthia Rosenzweig, a scientist at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

Okay, so future weather data is speculative, but past climate data is historical fact. The Times’ temp charts feature cities around the country but they do not indicate the number of days actually at or above 90 degrees.

Maue took a look at station data from Washington, D.C., but found that it did not at all resemble what the Times’ graphic reflects, which is a dramatic increase in the number of hot days to be expected.

“Washington DC (Reagan) since 1940 90F days in a given year. But again, 90F is basically the average temperature in mid-summer. Bleh,” he tweeted.

There has been a decade where heat around the country was dramatically higher: During the Dust Bowl years of the 1930s, when drought spread to nearly 75 percent of the country and 27 states.

What’s more, spiking average temperatures are little-changed now from the 1950s.

The Times, like the rest of the Left-wing establishment media, just can’t get enough of scaring generations of Americans to death with their phony-baloney “climate change/global warming” hoax, which is designed to destroy capitalism and bring entire populations under the thumb of authoritarian government.
