By a thousand small cuts and adjustments the party line will stay strong…
“The Ministry of [C(LIE)mate] Truth is involved with news media, entertainment, the fine arts and educational books. Its purpose is to rewrite history to change the facts to fit Party doctrine for propaganda effect. For example, if Big Brother makes a prediction that turns out to be wrong, the employees of the Ministry of Truth go back and rewrite the prediction so that any prediction Big Brother previously made is accurate. This is the “how” of the Ministry of Truth’s existence. Within the novel, Orwell elaborates that the deeper reason for its existence is to maintain the illusion that the Party is absolute. It cannot ever seem to change its mind (if, for instance, they perform one of their constant changes regarding enemies during war) or make a mistake (firing an official or making a grossly misjudged supply prediction), for that would imply weakness and to maintain power the Party must seem eternally right and strong.”
Minitrue plays a role as the news media by changing history, and changing the words in articles about events current and past, so that Big Brother and his government are always seen in a good light and can never do any wrong. The content is more propaganda than actual news”
An amazing story of scientific fraud. Probably the biggest scientific fraud in history.
As of 1975, both the instrumental and the tree ring data showed sharp cooling from 1940 to 1970
The next graph overlays Briffa’s trees on the 1975 National Academy of Sciences graph. There was almost a perfect match, with no divergence.
NOAA radiosonde data from the 1950’s through the 1970’s also showed sharp cooling and no divergence from Briffa’s trees.
The New York Times reported a unanimous consensus of scientists for global cooling
