NASA GISS Research News claimed that 2014 was the warmest year ever. Was that report Research News or was it just plain BS ?

On Jan 16 2015, a news release from NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) made the rounds at News Media sites around the Globe.

Why?  The title of NASA’s News Release was “NASA, NOAA Find 2014 Warmest Year in Modern Record”.

The lead statement in the release was “The year 2014 ranks as Earth’s warmest since 1880, according to two separate analyses by NASA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientists.”

From a prior NASA post from 01/21/2010 we read the following:
NASA: Why does GISS get a different answer than the Met Office Hadley Centre [a UK climate research group that works jointly with the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia to perform an analysis of global temperatures]?

Gavin Schmidt: It’s mainly related to the way the weather station data is extrapolated. The Hadley Centre uses basically the same data sets as GISS, for example, but it doesn’t fill in large areas of the Arctic and Antarctic regions where fixed monitoring stations don’t exist. Instead of leaving those areas out from our analysis, you can use numbers from the nearest available stations, as long as they are within 1,200 kilometers. Overall, this gives the GISS product more complete coverage of the polar areas.

NASA: Some might hear the word “extrapolate” and conclude that you’re “making up” data. How would you reply to such criticism?”

Duh… Extrapolated data, is data which does not exist. It is in fact made up...

NASA claims that 2014 was warmer than 2010, which NASA had claimed was the prior record holder.

So supposedly how much warmer was 2014 over 2010, as per NASA?

As per NASA’s conjecture 2014 was just 0.02 Degrees Celsius warmer than 2010.

Big WOW, but wait there is more.

Scientists say that the “Margin of Error” in this scenario is approx 0.1 Degrees Celsius. Therefore the Margin of Error is “five” times greater than the claimed 0.02 Degrees Celsius increase.

IMHO, essentially the NASA News Release was just plain meaningless BS, except for those who wish to promote the propaganda of Man Made Global Warming.
