NZ cooling since 1909!


New Zealand temperatures have been cooling since 1909, a penetrating analysis of NIWA’s new national temperatures series by Friends of Gin and Tonic, the self-proclaimed “#1 AGW Denial Site in Canada & Australia” has revealed. FoGT explain that in the absence of a full statistical analysis of the new series by Treadgold and the NZ C”S”C, their statistical experts have taken a look at NIWA’s data.

The data series, directly from NIWA, incorporates their new adjustments and can therefore be expected to be as ‘warm’ as they reckon they can get away with. Using techniques from Canada’s Friends of Science and leading blog climatologist the Baron von Monckhofen, we fit to this seven-station compilation seven trends which together cover the entire period 1909-2009. Despite the data adjustments each of these trends is negative, demonstrating convincingly that New Zealand has been consistently cooling throughout the 1909-2009 period. Furthermore, careful inspection of the graph reveals another important fact: the gradients of the three regression lines on the right of the figure show that cooling has accelerated since 1970. These two key observations from the New Zealand data agree with what scientists who are not members of the conspiracy have long been saying about trends globally.

My sources suggest that this shocking discovery is causing consternation in the NZ climatological community, but I haven’t been able to obtain an on-the-record comment at the moment because they’re having a New Year barbie on the beach at Island Bay and haven’t got any stats textbooks with them.

  1. It’s laughable but this is exactly what Richard Cummings from Treadgold’ blog is currently doing with the same data. Mind you I suspect his problem really is ignorance and desperation.

  2. Iquique, Chile had no rainfall in 2010 – not even a trace. And only 0.4mm has fallen in the last 8 years. But back in 2002, when it had 9.5mm, I’m sure some warmists were talking about more rain in future in Chile. Something to do with more La Ninos or that kind of thing? Clearly the warmists have been found out again, and this place is getting drier! The trend is quite clear, you don’t even need a graph.

    1. Umm, yes well that being stupid was just a clever disguise! But I wasn’t fooled. Sadly, the line of reasoning followed too closely that which passes for logic in denier circles.

    How strange, because from our front porch presently a ‘fresh’ nor easter @ 2pm had bestowed a tolerable 26 degrees C, until but two minutes later the prevalent nor wester had temperatures exceed 30 degrees and rising throughout the afternoon.

    Has me wonder whether all that hot aussie air – England did hit 660+ runs to extinguish the home teams hopes of a test win – was directly responsible.. then again, our pollutocrat amis could have… come up with yet another provocation to Nature… anything will do… oh yes it will… for in case you did not realise twas President Nixon who birthed the denial religion… yep, see for yourself on Frost/Nixon.. how it works in politics as opposed to science.

    Happy New Year folks!
