NOAA has spent billions of tax payers dollars to send up satellites to monitor the weather and thus climate of the Earth. It pays two different scientific groups, UAH and RSS to produce global temperature data sets of the Earth’s atmosphere, but routinely ignores them when is needs to push Climate Catastrophism.

Those who choose to read a full, scientific explanation as to why July 2019 was NOT the hottest ever should refer back to Dr. Roy Spencer’s piece on this site published on 2 August, July 2019 Was Not the Warmest on Record.

For those who are visual learners, I offer graphs of the two satellite based global temperature records that NOAA ignores when making “hottest ever” declarations, first the graphs from Remote Sensing Systems:

It is interesting to note how different the visual impression is between the most recent data and the longer term data. In the top image of “recent” data, the trend line from the full data set is included — it is not the trend of the recent data. Nonetheless, it is obvious that the data is functionally flat (or even downtrending if one wishes to start at the 2016 peak).
