    Just confirming something we all already knew, the temperature data set used to produce the latest IPCC report is not fit for purpose!

    •The Hadley data is one of the most cited, most important databases for climate modelling, and thus for policies involving billions of dollars.
    •McLean found freakishly improbable data, and systematic adjustment errors , large gaps where there is no data, location errors, Fahrenheit temperatures reported as Celsius, and spelling errors.
    •Almost no quality control checks have been done: outliers that are obvious mistakes have not been corrected – one town in Columbia spent three months in 1978 at an average daily temperature of over 80 degrees C. One town in Romania stepped out from summer in 1953 straight into a month of Spring at minus 46°C. These are supposedly “average” temperatures for a full month at a time. St Kitts, a Caribbean island, was recorded at 0°C for a whole month, and twice!
    •Temperatures for the entire Southern Hemisphere in 1850 and for the next three years are calculated from just one site in Indonesia and some random ships.
    •Sea surface temperatures represent 70% of the Earth’s surface, but some measurements come from ships which are logged at locations 100km inland. Others are in harbors which are hardly representative of the open ocean.
    •When a thermometer is relocated to a new site, the adjustment assumes that the old site was always built up and “heated” by concrete and buildings. In reality, the artificial warming probably crept in slowly. By correcting for buildings that likely didn’t exist in 1880, old records are artificially cooled. Adjustments for a few site changes can create a whole century of artificial warming trends.

    Details of the worst outliers
    •For April, June and July of 1978 Apto Uto (Colombia, ID:800890) had an average monthly temperature of 81.5°C, 83.4°C and 83.4°C respectively.
    •The monthly mean temperature in September 1953 at Paltinis, Romania is reported as -46.4 °C (in other years the September average was about 11.5°C).
    •At Golden Rock Airport, on the island of St Kitts in the Caribbean, mean monthly temperatures for December in 1981 and 1984 are reported as 0.0°C. But from 1971 to 1990 the average in all the other years was 26.0°C.

    To people who actually work with datasets, those anomalies look rather nightmarish. How the Hell did they adjust for the outliers and lack of data?

    • California, Ablaze: Three of California’s five largest fires on record have occurred in the last three years. The worst is likely yet to come. (Robinson Meyer)

    Overnight the number of dead in that fire rose from 29 to 42. SoCal fire has killed two.



    Multiple wildfires have engulfed California. The Camp Fire in Northern California is now the deadliest wildfire in modern California history, with 29 confirmed dead. The Woolsey Fire raging in the southern part of the state has forced 265,000 people to evacuate in Ventura and Los Angeles counties.

    Gotta luv Californians for coming up with new jargon words or acronyms no matter how ugly.


    If you were wondering why deaths from wildfires are on the increase, (currently 56 dead, worst ever, and 1-200 unaccounted for in the Camp fire N. Cal) it's because 100M Americans, 1 in 3, now live in the WUI, that's right the WUI, or Wooie to youse.
    Only a matter of time before more Americans are living in the WUI than are living in America.



    It's the Wilderness Urban Interface. Tell your grandkids.......

    The overnight rise in the number of unaccounted for to 600, is emblematic of the confusion that reigns........

    Factors fueling deadliest U.S. wildfires in a century
    Data: CAL FIRE and US Forest Service, NOAA. Chart: Harry Stevens/Axios
    Above, the 13-month string of California's deadliest and most destructive blazes has been driven by unusually warm and dry preceding conditions, strong winds that have caused the fires to spread rapidly, and populated areas that are difficult to evacuate on short notice, Axios science editor Andrew Freedman reports.
    Below, a neighborhood in Paradise, in Northern California, as the fire's death toll hits 63 and the number unaccounted for soars to 631 (although that may include some who are counted twice, or who may not know they were reported missing):

    More than 10,000 homes destroyed, we are told today.

    This family made it out of Paradise, many more did not. It is easy to see why numbers of dead are not known and not knowable in full.

    Fire is part of the natural forest system in those parts of the States like windblow is here. However, are some of these fires started deliberately? And maybe prolonged dry periods are making things worse?

    Is building houses in the urban wilderness frontier in an area where forest fire is a natural occurrence the equivalent of people building in floodplains here in Ireland... With more tragic consequences?

    Yes and Yes. That's certainly part of the reason......


    Death toll increased to 80. Number of unaccounted reduced to 900.

    Five Thirty Eight
    Why California's Wildfires Are So Destructive, In 5 Charts
    Fires aren't rare in California, and no one thing causes them. But the fires this season have grown to be big and destructive because a confluence of environmental changes, several related to climate change, have made the state more vulnerable. Those changes include drought, higher-than-average temperatures and population growth near wilderness areas, all of which have created favorable fire conditions, exacerbated the blazes and made them more costly

    Due to heavy rain at the weekend the Camp fire in NorCal is now under control.
    50,000 people have been displaced/homeless.
    19,000 buildings including 14,000 homes destroyed.
    88 confirmed dead, 250 mostly elderly still missing/unaccounted.
