Add this to the Heights of Hoaxiness files: Steve Goddard (go here if you need to catch up) has made an astounding discovery, which he reveals with a .gif and YouTube animation of the Earth at Anthony Watts’s blog, Watts Up With That? (WUWT).
Goddard discovered that, if one ignores warming of small amounts, and counts it as not warming at all, the colors on a color-coded map change a lot, and look a lot cooler.
Shorter Goddard: Hide the increase in temperatures, and it looks like temperatures don’t increase nearly as much.
You couldn’t make up such denialism if you tried. If you submitted this stuff as fiction, it couldn’t get published.
Here’s an object warning about turning angry monkeys loose with graphics software: Goddard’s YouTube:
Key unanswered question: If we ignore rising temperatures, do they stop rising? If we ignore rising temperatures, can glaciers, oceans, plants and animals be convinced to do the same?
How many polar bears read Steve Goddard’s posts at WUWT? Can they be persuaded?
Somebody exhume Benjamin Disraeli. He needs to update his stuff.
