Russ Hepler exposes the top 5 liberal climate change lies about 2015:
President Obama has repeated a lie over and over again about this past year – 2015 – when it comes to the climate.
His mantra goes something like this – “Climate change/global warming is real and the fact that 2015 was the hottest year ever recorded proves it.”
It is a bold, provocative statement to make, but is it true?
Breitbart gets at the real truth:
Over the next few days and weeks you will hear lots and lots of stories about how 2015 was the “Hottest Year Evah”.
Whoever makes this claim will be an idiot, a liar, a charlatan – or, in the case of many establishment climate scientists, most likely all three.
Peter Hannam, Environment Editor of the Sydney Morning Herald
At some point, you would think most climate change deniers would throw in the towel.
Fifteen of the 16 hottest years on record have happened this century and the other year wasn’t much earlier, in 1998. And 2015 was a breakaway year.

We just lived in the hottest year on record
Some guy in the National Journal
Global temperatures in 2015 were the warmest since record-keeping began—and it wasn’t even close.
This other guy in the New York Times
Scientists reported Wednesday that 2015 was the hottest year in the historical record by far, breaking a mark set only the year before — a burst of heat that has continued into the new year and is roiling weather patterns all over the world.
So, are these guys correct? Does the science support their alarmist claims?
Not so fast! – argue the real facts about climate and temperatures as Breitbart reveals:
Here is why they’re all talking rubbish and you needn’t worry about that “Hottest Year Evah” one bit.
1. The satellite data show no warming
Compare the two trends (below): the upward one comes from the surface temperature dataset used by NASA GISS (and NOAA and the Met Office – they’re all pretty much interchangeable); the flat trend comes from the more accurate satellite data. Which one do you trust?
2. NASA has fiddled the raw temperature data on an ‘unbelievable scale’
From the publicly available data, Ewert made an unbelievable discovery: Between the years 2010 and 2012 the data measured since 1881 were altered so that they showed a significant warming, especially after 1950. […] A comparison of the data from 2010 with the data of 2012 shows that NASA-GISS had altered its own datasets so that especially after WWII a clear warming appears – although it never existed.
3. NOAA is just as bad
Whether this represents mere incompetence or calculated fraud by NOAA is for future courts to decide. What we do know is that the problem dates back at least to the 1990s when, for some unexplained reason, NOAA decided to halve the…
