(Natural News) Climate change advocates have long claimed that the Earth’s temperature rose by a minimum of 1 C on an annual basis. However, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) noted in its Climate Change 2021 report that this was not the case. The report’s findings strike a serious blow to climate alarmists and their global warming agenda.
According to the report, surface temperatures from 1850 to 1900 and from 2010 to 2019 ranged from 0.8 C to 1.3 C. It added that the best estimated temperature increase caused by humans since 1850 was 1.07 C. Furthermore, the report noted that surface temperatures over land were higher than the temperatures over large bodies of water.
Terrestrial temperatures ranged from 1.34 C to 1.83 C with an average of 1.59 C. Meanwhile, ocean temperatures ranged from 0.68 C to 1.01 C, with an average temperature of 0.88 C.
The IPCC report also noted that global average sea levels increased by 1.3 millimeters per year (mm/year) from 1901 to 1971. It rose to 1.9 mm/year between 1971 and 2006. Sea levels worldwide had an almost two-fold increase from the current measure between 2006 and 2018 – at 3.7 mm/year.
Wall Street Journal (WSJ) columnist Holman W. Jenkins, Jr. penned an op-ed following the IPCC report’s findings. His Sept. 3 op-ed criticized media outlets for climate change fearmongering based on “inconsistent computer simulations.” Jenkins wrote: “After 41 years of promoting a fuzzy and unsatisfying estimate of how much warming might result from a doubling of atmospheric CO2 [carbon dioxide], the world’s climate science arbiter has finally offered the first real improvement in the history of modern climate science.”
Jenkins noted that earlier UN reports predicted a worst-case rise of 4.5 C. The IPCC report now stated that using real world data, a 4 C rise would happen to be the worst and any temperature increase beyond 5 C would be “very unlikely.” The UN walked back on its earlier “dire emissions scenario” it pushed for 20 years, the WSJ columnist wrote.

Government agencies appear to be manipulating temperatures to show “warming”
The release of the IPCC Climate Change 2021 report debunks claims of intense temperature increases. But prior to the report, some people expressed concern that authorities were manipulating daily temperature readings to push the global warming sham.
Francis Menton wrote in a July 2019 piece for the Manhattan Contrarian: “[When] not so many people are looking, the temperature adjusters have been beavering away in the bowels of their collections of data, continuing to send inconvenient readings of the past down the memory hole – and to ‘adjust’ the temperatures of the past down, and of the present up.”
Menton cited the work of Japanese climate skeptic Kirye, who pointed out the manipulation that happened to data from Global Historical Climatology Network (GHCN). In her Twitter posts, Kirye noted how the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) launched version four of the GHCN temperature data that had minor changes compared to version three. However, she pointed out that the NASA labeled version 3 data as “unadjusted” when it released the GCHN graphs for version 4. (Related: PROOF that NASA is faking global temperature data to push the false “global warming” science fraud.)
The Japanese climate skeptic noted that a small cooling trend in the version 3 data was manipulated to reflect an increase in temperature in the version 4 graph. “Although the magnitude of the change in trend may vary, the direction of the change in trend created by the now-memory-holed ‘adjustments’ is always the same – the warming trend is enhanced,” Menton described Kirye’s findings.
Furthermore, Menton cited findings by independent British blogger Clive Best from the HadCRUT surface temperature series. The University of East Anglia‘s Hadley Center was responsible for compiling this data. Best then traced several ‘adjustments’ to the HadCRUT data in recent years and found strong evidence of manipulation.
The independent blogger pointed out that from 1998 to 2013, temperatures failed to rise as predicted – which was dubbed as the “hiatus.” However, Best found that in the most recent HadCRUT data set that 2005, 2010 and 2014 turned out to be warmer than 1998 – effectively erasing the hiatus. Similar measurements for the three years showed that they had lower temperatures than what HadCRUT showed.
