Claim 7. Temperatures have risen faster in recent years than ever before.
Truth: Remember that there is no such thing as a global temperature. It is the average of all of the reporting stations all over the world. The rapid rise in temperatures in the 1990s directly coincides with a decrease in the number of Siberian weather stations reporting due to the break-up of the Soviet Union.

Additionally, the “hottest year on record”, 1998, was an El Nino year so it was naturally hotter than the years just before and after. Another “cause” of rising average global temperatures is the urban heat island effect. Cities are hotter than rural areas. Many of the reporting stations that were once in undeveloped rural areas have experienced either suburban or urban development, or the stations have been moved to more urban settings. It is well documented that some have been, seemingly intentionally, relocated near or at heat sources such as paved parking lots and air conditioners.
One reason for relocation near buildings or other structures could be that new automatic-reporting equipment needs to be connected by cable. Rather than dig up parking lots or roads to install units in a grassy or protected area, many have opted to locate them where they can be directly connected without involving costly excavation, although such sites do not meet the stated requirements. Instead of excluding data from stations that are poorly situated, a convoluted mathematical algorithm (scheme) is used to “correct” it to presumed pre-industrial levels. See illustrations below.
Urban area plus mathematical correction algorithm equals pristine nature

Claim 7 source is book, Perverted Truth Exposed: How Progressive Philosophy has Corrupted Science, 2016
For a great history of Climate Change and Population Control Alarms watch this video from realclimatescience.com and Steve Goddard’s Youtube channel by Tony Heller. A little long but well worth watching. All scares are politics, not science. The aim is socialist/communist control – control of population, economy, politics, every facet of your life.
- The world is still not overpopulated.
- Hunger is more about politics than scarcity. Modern agriculture can feed everyone.
- The climate is always changing, but it is not dangerous. Warm is healthier than cold.
- Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is plant food, and why earth is not one giant ball of ice.
- Water vapor is a far stronger greenhouse gas than CO2.
- Most of the greenhouse effect occurred in the distant past with an almost opaque blanket preventing heat loss to space. Any further increase in CO2 will have little to no effect.
- Deserts and jungles are greening. Crop yields have increased 15 to 20% on average.
- The oceans are not rising, except for 7 inches a century since the little Ice Age.
- Ocean acidification is a myth. Oceans are buffered to maintain alkaline pH, not acid.
- Storms, droughts, floods are not increasing in intensity or frequency.
- Polar bears and other wildlife are thriving.
Check out my book Perverted Truth Exposed: How Progressive Philosophy has Corrupted Science on Amazon, and earlier posts here on this subject. The book covers some of the basic areas where science has been corrupted or replaced by philosophy disguised as science. The major scientific areas covered are Darwinian Evolution, Origin of Life Theories, Cosmology, Quantum Mechanics as the heart of Particle Physics, and the Climate Change debate. I present facts and logic to make the point that these areas, regardless of the merit of the theories, are actually based on philosophy, not science, that fits an atheistic, anti-human, progressive political agenda.

Anomic Age Podcast interview with Kay Kiser, the author of “Perverted Truth Exposed: How Progressive Philosophy Has Corrupted Science”
Kay Kiser is with us today to discuss the proliferation of the progressive philosophy throughout academia, her books, Darwin, and more.
Kay is a retired chemist with over 30 years of experience in industrial research and development. Professional roles include microbiologist, teacher, technical writer, inventor, lab manager/designer, and volunteer crisis counselor. She hold 5 patents, wrote/taught many technical manuals and procedures, and coauthored a chapter in an American Chemical Society book, “Radiation Curing of Polymeric Materials”. Mrs. Kiser is a lifelong researcher into all things related to science and history. She hold a Lifetime Achievement Award from Marquis Who’s Who, which has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Nov. 26, 2018 and other publications. Kay is a conservative Christian, skeptic, iconoclast and seeker of truth.
She has published two non-fiction books in her Modern Mythology
Series, pointing out the myths that most of us have assumed to be true.
Her first book, “Perverted Truth Exposed: How Progressive Philosophy Has Corrupted Science”, presents logical arguments questioning long-standing scientific assumptions and world views in which progressive philosophy has been disguised as science in a nested series of theories. Examination of the history, philosophy and political connections reveals the flawed logic of many scientific theories. Academia has become a closed priesthood, not an open forum for truth. Adherence to the party line determines what research is done, funded and published.
Kay’s second book, “Saving Africa from Lies that Kill: How Myths about the Environment and Overpopulation are Destroying Third World Countries” is an Award-Winning Finalist in the Social Change category of the 2019 International Book Awards. It exposes long-standing crimes by international organizations that keep developing nations poor, isolated, ignorant, sick and, most of all, controlled, all based on the myths that overpopulation has caused environmental harm, and assumed genetic inferiority of impoverished cultures. Poverty, not overpopulation, causes environmental harm.
There’s something altogether cynical about well-healed nations forcing the impoverished to embrace expensive and unreliable wind and solar. It is, of course, all done in the name of ‘saving the planet’. [Note to Ed: Not to mention saving the manufacturers of industrial wind turbines and solar panels, who are struggling back home]. As any economist […]

E10 petrol still emits carbon dioxide (CO2) when burned, just as biomass fuelled power stations do. So if there really was a ‘climate emergency’ this proposed change would have zero immediate effect on it. The report claims E10 ‘contains less carbon and more ethanol than fuels currently on sale’, but that’s negligible. What happens is […]
In one breath the wind industry and its acolytes talk about “saving the planet”, in the next they’re destroying it, wholesale. Millions of birds, bats and bugs are being wiped out with impunity. And millions of acres of forest have been treated with the same malicious contempt. In Scotland, since 2000, the wind industry has […]
Other data shows the USA wasn’t even close to a record. By Anthony Watts In a report generating substantial media attention this month, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) claimed January 2020 was the hottest January on record. In reality, the claim relies on substantial speculation, dubious reporting methods, and a large, very suspicious,…
The French get 85% of their power from nuclear plants and haven’t suffered so much as a scratch since they started in 1962. By contrast, the wind industry (which really only got off the ground in the late 1990s and still generates a trifling amount of electricity) has clocked up around 190 fatalities, so far (eg, […]
