NASA's Rubber Ruler: An Update

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. In 2012, I wrote an American Thinker article on the status of global warming at the time.  I used the latest available NASA/GISS data to do that analysis, which was the version NASA had on its website on April 30, 2012 (Land-Ocean Temperature Index [LOTI]). At that time, the data from 1880 through 2011 showed a warming trend of 0.59 degrees Celsius per century. What is that warming trend using the latest data from NASA's website (December 30, 2017), using those same exact years (1880-2011)?  The answer is 0.66˚ C. 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...(Read Full Article)
