In the news today President Trump hints that the U.S. may curtail aid to Pakistan and warns Iran about human rights violation. Finally we hear about how NASA “adjusts” its temperature readings to support the theory of global warming while records for cold weather are being set around the country.
President Donald Trump lashed out at Pakistan on Twitter just a few minutes past 7:00 a.m. Eastern time on New Year’s Day, expressing frustration at Islamabad’s inadequate efforts against terrorism and implying that U.S. foreign aid will be terminated as a result.
President Donald Trump, noting the Iranian people “are hungry for food and freedom,” said it is “time for a change.”
At least 12 people have been reported killed during demonstrations in Iran.
Trump’s administration has placed additional sanctions on the country.
Trump said on Twitter a day earlier that the U.S. will be watching “very closely” for human rights violations during the protests.
Trump’s comments came in a tweet Monday morning.
The NASA/GISS temperature record is not actually a record of recorded temperatures. It is simply the most recent version of NASA’s adjustments to older adjustments. It is not thermometer readings. It is models all the way down.
How did warming accelerate if we are looking at the very same years?
Apparently, the Earth is getting warmer faster than it was five and a half years ago, but not because of actual recorded thermometer readings in those last five and a half years. It is getting warmer faster because NASA adjusted the data to show faster warming.
When you go to the NASA website, you can download temperature anomalies “1880-present.” But those data change every month. NASA adjusts it. You cannot find any older versions. NASA makes available only its most recent version. And NASA does not explain how it adjusts the data. You must simply trust it.
