NASA GISS likes to go back in history and alter the temperature figures from recorded datasets from all around the world, and then declare global warming.
Yet when we examine the (real) unadjusted, unaltered data, we find an entirely different story: In many places there has been little or even no warming over the recent decades. Many locations have seen cooling, in fact.
For example, using the data from the Japan Meteorology Agency (JMA), I checked 12 France stations which have August temperature data going back to 1982. Seven of 12 stations show August temperatures there have not warmed since 1990!
France August temperatures haven’t risen in almost 3 decades. Data source: JMA.
Looking at the 6 stations that have complete data going back to 1996 in the Scandinavian country of Finland, we also see the same story for August:
Three of 6 Finland stations have seen a cooling trend for August since 1996. The warming at the other three are statistically insignificant. Data source: JMA.
In neighboring Sweden we also find 6 stations for which the JMA has almost complete data going back over 2 decades:
Six stations in Sweden show a cooling trend for August since 1995. Data: JMA
These show no warming as well.
So when we look at the untampered data at stations in Europe, we find that there has not been any warming over the past recent decades. The story is the same at many stations scattered around the globe.
NASA GISS claims that warming has occurred because it simply changed the data to make it appear that way. Real data tell a different story.
