Scientists balk at ‘hottest year’ claims: Ignores Satellites showing 18 Year ‘Pause’ – ‘We are arguing over the significance of hundredths of a degree’ – The ‘Pause’ continues

-

The global warming establishment and the media are crowing about 2010 being in a tie for the “hottest year” ever. The UK Guardian headline sums up the media’s promotion:

UK Guardian: ‘Hottest Year’ Claim: 2014 officially the ‘hottest year’ on record US government scientists say – ‘Nasa and Noaa scientists report 2014 was 0.07F (0.04C) higher than previous records…The global average temperatures over land and sea surface for the year was 1.24F (0.69C) above the 20th century average, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (Noaa) and Nasa reported. The scientists said 2014 was 0.07F (0.04C) higher than the previous records set in 2005 and 2010.’

But scientists and climate skeptics are countering that the claims of “hottest year” are based on immeasurable temperature differences that are based on hundredths of a degree differences.

Climate Depot’s Marc Morano issued this statement: “There are dueling global datasets — surface temperature records and satellite records — and they disagree. The satellites show an 18 year plus global warming ‘standstill and the satellite was set up to be “more accurate” than the surface records. See: Flashback: 1990 NASA Report: ‘Satellite analysis of upper atmosphere is more accurate, & should be adopted as the standard way to monitor temp change.’

Any temperature claim of “hottest  year” based on surface data is based on hundredths of a degree hotter than previous “hottest years”. This immeasurable difference is not even within the margin of error of temperature gauges. The claim of the “hottest year” is simply a political statement not based on temperature facts. “Hottest year” claims are based on minute fractions of a degree while ignoring satellite data showing Earth is continuing the 18 plus year ‘pause’ or ‘standstill’. See: The Great Pause lengthens again: Global temperature update: The Pause is now 18 years 3 months (219 months)

Monckton jan 2014

Claiming 2014 is the “hottest year” on record based on hundredths of a degree temperature difference is a fancy way of saying the global warming ‘pause’ is continuing.”

End Morano statement. (Morano was former staff of U.S. Senate Environment & Public Works Committee and producer of upcoming documentary Climate Hustle. He also testified in West VA on the climate school curriculum. )

Even former NASA global warming chief scientist  James Hansen, the leading proponent of man-made global warming in the U.S., conceded in 2011 that the “hottest year” rankings are essentially meaningless. Hansen explained that 2010 differed from 2005 by less than 2 hundredths of a degree F (that’s 0.018F). “It’s not particularly important whether 2010, 2005, or 1998 was the hottest year on record,” Hansen admitted on January 13.

Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry, former chair of the school of earth and atmospheric sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology, had this to say about 2014 being the ‘hottest year’: “The ‘warmest year’ is noticeably missing in the satellite data sets of lower atmospheric temperatures,” Curry wrote on January 16.

Curry predicts another decade of a global warming ‘pause’ or ‘hiatus’. “I’ve made my projection – global surface temperatures will remain mostly flat for at least another decade,” she eexplained 

“With 2014 essentially tied with 2005 and 2010 for hottest year, this implies that there has been essentially no trend in warming over the past decade. This ‘almost’ record year does not help the growing discrepancy between the climate model projections and the surface temperature observations,” Curry told the Washington Post.

Curry continued: “Berkeley Earth (temperature analysis) sums it up well with this statement: ‘That is, of course, an indication that the Earth’s average temperature for the last decade has changed very little.’

Climatologist Dr. Pat Michaels, mocked the notion of the “hottest year.”   “Whether or not a given year is a hundredth of a degree or so above a previous record is not the issue. What IS the issue is how observed temperatures compare to what has been forecast to happen,” Michaels said.

Michaels continued: “John Christy and Richard McNider, from University of Alabama (Huntsville) recently compared climate model projections to observed lower atmospheric temperatures as measured by two independent sources: satellites and weather balloons. They found that the average warming predicted to have occurred since 1979 (when the satellite data starts) is approximately three times larger than what is being observed.”

Climatologist Dr. John Christy, professor of atmospheric sciences, University of Alabama-Huntsville, noted satellites do not agree with “warmest year” claims. “The satellite and balloon data of the deep atmosphere have 2014 in a cluster of warmish years well below the hottest two of 1998 and 2010″, Christy said.

Christy continued: “With the government agencies reporting that the surface temperature as highest ever, we have a puzzle. The puzzle is even more puzzling because theory (i.e. models) indicate the opposite should be occurring – greater warmth in the deep atmosphere than the surface. So, there are just many very basic and fundamental aspects of the global climate we have yet to comprehend.”

Climatologist Dr. Roger Pielke Sr., professor of atmospheric science, Colorado State University, downplayed the accuracy of the surface temperature record. “There remain significant uncertainties in the accuracy of the land portion of the surface temperature data, where we have found a significant warm bias. Thus, the reported global average surface temperature anomaly is also too warm.”

“More generally, we need to move beyond just assessing global warming, but examine how (and if) key atmospheric and ocean circulations, such as El Nino, La Nina, the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, etc. are changing in their intensity, structure and frequency. These are the climate features that determine if a region has drought, floods, and so forth, not a global average surface temperature anomaly,” Pielke added.

Astrophysicist Dr. Dr David Whitehouse declared “talk of a record is scientifically and statistically meaningless.’ “The addition of 2014 global temperature data confirms that the post-1997 standstill seen in global annual average surface temperature has continued,” Whitehouse wrote on January 16.

“According to the Nasa global temperature database 2014 was technically a record ‘beating’ 2010 by the small margin of 0.02 deg C. The NASA press release is highly misleading saying that 2014 is a record without giving the actual 2014 figure, or any other year, or its associated error.”

“In reality of course it is no record at all as the error of the measurements is about +/- 0.1 deg C showing NasaGiss’ statement to go against the normal treatment of observational data and its errors. Talk of a record is therefore scientifically and statistically meaningless,” Whitehouse added.

“It is clear beyond doubt by now that there is a growing discrepancy between computer climate projections and real-world data that questions their ability to produce meaningful projections about future climatic conditions,” Whitehouse concluded.

Another analysis noted: NASA Hottest Year Claims Not Supported By The Data: NASA admitted in 2011 that “hottest year” differences were “smaller than the uncertainty in comparing the temperatures of recent years.”

Via the website ‘Not A Lot Of People Know That: “Nowhere does their (NASA 2015) press release tell us that it only beat the previous record by a tiny, effectively unmeasurable 0.02C. Nor do they mention that the error bars are many times greater, or even tell us what they are. This is all very strange because in their (NASA) report on 2010 Global Temperatures, NASA said:

“Global surface temperatures in 2010 tied 2005 as the warmest on record, according to an analysis released Wednesday by researchers at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York. The two years differed by less than 0.018 degrees Fahrenheit. The difference is smaller than the uncertainty in comparing the temperatures of recent years, putting them into a statistical tie.”

Meteorologist Dr. Ryan Maue of Florida State University ridiculed the same “hottest year” rankings in 2010 and NASA’s Hansen’s admission that it “was not particularly important” which year was declared the “hottest.” “Well, then stop issuing press releases which tout the rankings, which are subject to change ex post facto,” Maue demanded in a January 14, 2011 commentary at WattsUpWithThat.com.

Other prominent scientists have said that temperature rise since 1850 has been very small.

See: Top Swedish Climate Scientist Says Warming Not Noticeable: ‘The warming we have had last a 100 years is so small that if we didn’t have climatologists to measure it we wouldn’t have noticed it at all’ – Award-Winning Dr. Lennart Bengtsson, formerly of UN IPCC: ‘We Are Creating Great Anxiety Without It Being Justified’. Dr. Bengtsson announced his skeptical climate views in 2014.

Nobel Prize-Winning Physicist Dr. Ivar Giaever, declared his dissent on global warming and noted that the temperature rise over the 20th century was “so little. It is not even fever.”  Giaever won a Nobel Prize for physics.

“.8 degrees we will be discussing in global warming. .8 degrees if you ask people in general they will think it is 4 or 5 degrees they don’t know it is so little. It is not even fever,” Giaever said.

“I am amazed that the temperature can be so stable,” Giaever explained. ‘The temperature (of the Earth) has been amazingly stable, and both human health and happiness have definitely improved in this ‘warming’ period.’

“I don’t see that co2 is the cause of all this problem,” he added.

No Record Temperatures According To Satellites – BBC put up a deliberately apocalyptic picture while telling us the world is on course for the warmest year on record. What they failed to tell us was that the more accurate satellites, which monitor atmospheric temperatures over nearly all of the globe, say no such thing.  Figures from UAH are out for November, and these show a drop from the  October anomaly of 0.27C to 0.33C. This means that at the end of November, this year is only in a tie for 3rd with 2005, and well below the record year of 1998, and 2010.

2014 ‘Warmest ever’? ‘Conflicting Reports’ – Surface temps show it may be warmer by ‘a couple hundredths of a degree Celsius’ — A Fancy Ways of Saying Temp Standstill Continues! – ‘As a result of data and computational uncertainty,  none of the surface compilations will 2014 be statistically different from 2010’ – ‘The three major groups calculating the average surface temperature of the earth (land and ocean combined) all are currently indicating that 2014 will likely nudge out 2010 (by a couple hundredths of a degree Celsius) to become the warmest year in each dataset (which begin in mid-to-late 1800s).’ – ‘The two satellite datasets ‘show that 2014 is nowhere near the warmest (in data which starts in 1979), trailing 1998 by several tenths of a degree Celsius. This difference is so great that it statistically clear that 2014 will not be a record year…The super El Niño of 1998 set a high temperature mark that will likely stand for many years to come, or at least until another huge El Niño occurs.’ – ‘If you want 2014 to be the “warmest year ever recorded” you can find data to back you up, and if you prefer it not be, well, you can find data to back up that position as well. In all cases, the former will make headlines.’

  1. We know NASA is a division of the U.S. government. The administration wants hahahahaha global warming legislation to take more money out of our pockets and force us to live like they think we should live. I’m not buying anything these people have to say. The earth is not warming, they are lying, and they should move on and forget this mess the world is trying to heap upon us.

  2. I would like to know how often the thermometers that provided this data were calibrated..

    I know the answer – NEVER.

    Any analytical chemist will tell you uncalibrated measurements are nothing boy noise.

    Might as well use a moist finger

    • Well, you know, breathing, flatulence…all leads to more CO2 and methane leaking into the atmosphere (that’s what they’ll say). The ultimate goal of these people are to eliminate most of the human population (which means get rid of the poor and middle class). Funny thing, when I eat just fruits and vegetables, I tend to flatulate more. I have asked the same question and have gotten no answers. I have also asked what proof is there that humans, and not nature, is causing this. Scientists have shown that Earth has gone through periods of global warming and cooling for eons, yet for some reason, this time it must be humans fault. How did it happen eons ago? Did someone from the future travel back in time with a V8 engine? I find it really odd that these same people make fun of people of faith (in God) but seem to have all this faith in these scientists who say we are the cause of global warming without proving why they believe this.

    • No problem, 18 or so years as Meteorologist. It’s actually quite simple, and boils down to two key components. The sun has cycles in how much energy that nuclear cauldron puts out. It’s certainly not constant and fluctuates. If one sees the comparison of how large the sun compared to Earth, even being 93 million miles away, yeah it has an impact far above anything else. Second, volcanoes, those put out far more “emissions” than we ever could possibly by heavy industry or driving. In the Middle Ages the sun went into a cycle known as the Maunder Minimum and there were huge volcanic eruptions. For example, in 1815 Mt. Tambora in Indonesia exploded releasing 38 cubic miles of ash, which caused worldwide climate change and in the N. Hemisphere for 2 years there were NO summers. Plenty of records on this, on how much crop failure and starvation was caused by it. If this happened today, the effects would be far worse. Volcanic activity has perked up recently but it’s actually very quiet in that regard and something big will come, it’s inevitable. The volcanoes are far smaller of the two key factors. There isn’t enough out there to determine how the sun is going to behave. What we put out in CO2, methane, etc… is minutia. The only way man can truly change the climate would be a nuke war. Everything else is largely irrelevant. Now, I’m all for a cleaner environment, green energy, less sprawl, etc etc, but we have to establish the green energy as reliable first, which it is not at this point.

        • No “direct” ice core evidence for the sun cycles. It’s mostly written records of astronomers at the time of when sun spots were observed or not. Sun spots meaning the sun is “hotter”, no sun spots means it’s relatively “cooler”. The Maunder Minimums feature few if any sun spots and means the sun isn’t as active or putting out as much energy as when it has sun spots. Another way to look and compare is like when you’re boiling water on the stove. When the water is cooler and the stove is on, it’s moving but not bubbling when boiling. The “bubbles” on the sun show as sun spots. All depends on the nuclear reaction within the sun and that is way harder to predict then any weather forecast. You’re absolutely right the ash layers can be found and accounted for. The lower energy of the sun isn’t as easy to tell as say tree rings, because ice compacts and can’t tell exactly one year or a decade of snow/ice accumulation. It’s a combination of “back-fitting” the sun cycles for the written record with today’s computers, adding available tree ring data, any additional written sources. It’s not exact, but regardless, the sun is the #1 weather factor.

  3. We aren’t going to let science get in the way of the biggest wealth redistribution and tax initiative in the history of the world! Let us hope the world warms up, because we’ll all be living outside in tents when it’s all over… Living outside and speaking Mandarin…

  4. It’s all for the headlines. The sheeple see the NYT headline about the “warmest year on record” and that’s all they need to be convinced that Al Gore is right, they should pay more taxes and have less freedom.

    Baa baa baa baa baa…I can hear them now.

  5. Scientists in Australia, USA and the UK have all
    been caught manipulating the data to ARTIFICIALLY create global warming.
    Scientists at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology are under indictment for
    manipulating an entire century of data to show a warming trend of 1.73C/century
    instead of the actual NEGATIVE 0.35C/century!!!! NASA & NOAA have also been
    caught making dishonest adjustments, as has the Climate research unit at the
    University of East Anglia in the UK. Yes they were illegally hacked to discover their
    lies…but lies and collusion PROVEN none the less.

  6. More lies, more exaggerations. Weren’t all the coastal cities suppose to be under water by now? Come back when you have something a bit more substantive than your chicken little horse$hit. Until I see mankind forced to change a single behavior that isn’t imaginary or precautionary based on a fantasy and a string of proven lies then I remain firmly in the non-Kool-Aid drinking camp.

  7. The EPA has 2 BILLION earmarked for phony research.
    .
    The bigger culprit is linked to the UN. It is the SERI institute in India.
    SERI Institute is run by the same doofus that runs the U.N.
    IPCC – Dr Rajendra K. Pachauri. Don’t be fooled by his cryptic Doctorates.
    Those degrees are for work he did with his former employer – The National
    Indian Railway!!!! Nothing to do with Climate Science!

    The BAD Dr. launders Billion$s through SERI Institute to buy
    phony “Research” with Junk Science for Global Warming. You didn’t
    think all those papers flooding academia & the “Sciences” were
    real, did you?

  8. This is all a lie. Record ice on both poles, record longevity of ice on the Great Lakes and the lowest temperatures across the country in decades with this year promising to be colder. This is a lie pure and simple. Like the nazis said, keep repeating a lie long enough it becomes the truth and the bigger the lie the more you double down on it.

  9. “the heat is hiding in the oceans”

    Is that the same heat that made it too cold for fairy-boy Obama to go swimming in the ocean on his 7th vacation to Martha’s Vineyard last summer, or the heat that froze the boatload of global warming liars into the Antarctic sea ice last Antarctic summer….you know, when they were studying the shrinking sea ice?

  10. If anything is making the earth’s climate change it is because everything we buy now is made on the other side of the world, and it all has to be transported. It’s not cheap energy for the poor who aren’t allowed to work!

  11. Here’s a study that concludes there is not a shred of true evidence there is global Warm ing. n fact Global Cooling is closer to the facts. Thank you UN you may now go back to your belly button cleaning…… Thank you.

  12. Facts? It’s got nothing to do with facts. This is about scaring people into excepting the next great phase of income redistribution and freedom suppression. Facts?….Don’t come here looking for a fight you bigoted, racist, intolerant, homophobic, women abusing, right wing, GW denying, one percent, immigrant bashing, oil loving, ground poisoning, air polluting piece of….wait, what was the question?

  13. These statistics are a dubious at best. First, most of the world is ocean. In truth weather buoys in the ocean are far and few between, and most are located within 200 miles of land. We don’t have many weather stations out in the open ocean. That’s very significant because it means that a huge percentage of the earth’s surface has no weather data. Second, many places in the eastern 2/3rds of the U.S. had one of their coldest, if not the coldest years ever in 2014. Most Americans were freezing their butts off last winter! Western Europe and parts of Asia also had a harsh winter last year. Nothing matches up here with reality! When a huge part North America has one of the coldest winters in history, it hear claims by NASA and NOAA don’t stand up to reason.

  14. Ah, the “New Age Religion Guru” James Hansen is busy trying to bilk us out of more cash to support his scam.

    We all know that this year has been COOLER than previous years. We also all know that Hansen and his fellow scammers have been caught with their hands in the proverbial cookie jar many times recently, fraudulently falsifying data. And we know that he’s definitely enjoying the “advisor to Al Gore and others” role he’s taken on, and gotten rich off of, all while still receiving a far-too-generous taxpayer-paid compensation package at the same time.

    The fact that Hansen, not long ago, applied a “fudge factor” to data which, in its raw stated, showed cooling trends, resulting in “results” which were forced to be WITHDRAWN BY NASA… should have gotten the SOB fired, long ago.

    But then again, remember, NASA is no longer about putting US interests into space, it’s about “reaching out to Muslims.” (sigh)

  15. amazing. neo-cons are totally afraid if someone wants to regulate their steel phallus, but have no fear about the reality of climate change. forget the numbers, look around you at the record droughts, record floods, record wildfires, seismic activity in bizarre places (fracking), polar vortexes ruining crops, costal highways closed due to rising water, but yeah….there’s no climate change due to man.

  16. The Global Warming Alarmists told us that as the earth got warmer, we would see an increase in the number and the intensity of tropical storms.

    We haven’t experienced this.

    If the earth is warmer now and we haven’t had more storms, then Global Warming doesn’t produce more and stronger storms. The prediction was wrong.

    If the prediction is right, that warmer temps do lead to more and stronger storms, then the earth is not getting warmer.

      • In the pass five decades, what has the government in the US really done to improve the lives of all it’s citizens? It seems government has the Midis touch but instead of turning everything it touches into gold it turns it instead into a smouldering pile of manure. Take Obama Care for example. What would make any sane individual believe that the government can make our medical care better under Obama Care when we can all see now messed up the Veterans Administration hospitals have been run? Note, the VA is a federal entity not a private entity like most of our medical care use to be.

        You Californians reading this. Remember MTBE and how the Californian government believed it was the answer to the global warming scare by eliminating chemicals in our automobile exhaust that allegedly were damaging our atmosphere? Do you also recall that today MTBE has been the source cause of the shutdown of many of your fresh water wells as it is a carcinogen? How much has MTBE really cost the American people? We don’t know and it will be decades before we can even estimate a cost with any degree of accuracy. But we now know that MTBE is a bad thing and no longer use it. But we shouldn’t have used it in the first place and wouldn’t have used it if it had not been for strong government intervention. Meaning, the government screwed it us, again. The old Midis touch turning stuff into crap.

        How does this happen?

        Because most of America today is either to ignorant about such things or they simply do not care and cannot be bothered to see to it that government operates at the will of the people for their benefit instead of the people existing for the benefit of government and its will. Does the tail wag the dog or does the dog wag the tale? With our government today, currently it’s the tale wagging the dog and we are the one’s forced to jump through the government’s hoops for it’s benefit and entertainment.

  17. If global warming were occurring and humans are the only creature to evolve, why are we getting fatter? Fat is used to insulate one from the cold and if it were getting warmer we would all be skinny. I would like for Algorites to be true in their beliefs as then I could get me a hot babe.

  18. And just how many of these city based thermometers are feet from a new black top parking lot? Lots and lots and lots. Surface data is basically useless unless the thermometer is far from any man made structure that can absorb infrared radiation. The climate hustle continues, send us money!

  19. If man causes “global warming” then how in the hell did the earth thaw from the ice age, long before man was driving cars and living with electricity? I think the sun, the cloud cover, the ocean currents, along with the CO2 released from the oceans, jungles, and volcanoes have much more to do with it. Which brings up another point…..how can CO2 be considered a pollutant when it’s the basic building block of ALL life on this planet. Without CO2 in the atmosphere there would be no plants, trees, grass, etc. Without these there would be no oxygen, and by consequence no people. Wake up libtards, this is basic 2nd grade science.

  20. Unfortunately – with the current Administration having PROVED themselves to be LIARS and AUTHORS OF DECEIT, I don’t believe them, especially when I read to many reports of “Record Cold” all over the world. So – EXCUSE ME for not believing this report.

    Just my Take

  21. Of course, NOAA is the same bastion of brilliance that said the “average temperature for the contiguous U.S. during July was 77.6°F, 3.3°F above the 20th century average, marking the warmest July and all-time warmest month on record for the nation in a period of record that dates back to 1895″ and “the previous warmest July for the nation was in 1936, when the average U.S. temperature was 77.4°F.”

    While NOAA and their fellow global warming/climate change fanatics spent much of their time shouting this “scientific” news to all the world for two years… they weren’t as enthusiastic about letting everyone know they quietly reinstated July 1936 as the hottest month on record in the U.S. sometime in June of 2014 because their “data” (as it turns out) was “flawed.”

  22. From a 1834 Kentucky newspaper article:
    Isiah Fredskir of Nashville TN reported his donkey named man died of hyperthermia July 10. Got so hot the popcorn started poppin in the garden and the donkey thought it was a blizzard and froze to death.
    Al Gore 2003:
    My great great great granddaddy Isiah Fredskir discovered global warming is man made.
    The science is settled.

  23. Unlike slavery I hope to God all ancestors of conservative climate change deniers (Oil/Coal industry water carriers) are held accountable for the ignorance of their fathers. People on this blog are fighting logic and science to the death to secure the profits of Oil and Coal Billionaires at the expense of the Earth. Its a shame you all will long dead when and your grand children will inherit an Earth were the Sky boils in January in North America and we loose NYC and parts of Florida due to rising sea levels. I hope you all retire to Florida Pan Handle and get swept out to sea in Super Hurricanes.

    • Get over yourself. This website isn’t just saying “we’re right and you’re wrong”, they have presented evidence from climatologists. If you want to believe a group of scientists on one side and not believe another group of scientists, that’s all on you buddy. Talk about closed minded.

      No prediction of doom and gloom has ever come to pass, ever. No biblical prophesy and no scientific or political one. Ten years ago Harry Reid made a big speech in congress saying there would never be any more snow, ever. That was back when the last 3 years of winter had no snow. Ever since then not only have we had snow, but huge blizzards. Guess he was wrong.

      How about I remind you of our Ozone layer? Remember how that was supposed to be gone by now? What you wrote is exactly the rhetorical nonsense I use to hearing back then about the Ozone layer. Everyone predicted doom and gloom and said we all had to change our ways and get taxed. Guess what, they were wrong too!

  24. It is what they want it to be! If the numbers aren’t there, they’ll make them up. If other numbers contradict, they’ll toss them. It’s all about an agenda! And money-lots of money. Carbon credits, credit trading, carbon taxes, and more taxes. Plus research grants for those who turn in reports that are favorable.

  25. I couldn’t care less if it’s warming, cooling or turning Japanese (I really think so).

    Try to tax me to pay for this idiocy and I’m out.
    America used to be the only player.
    No longer. I’ll happily take my money and brains somewhere they’ll be more appreciated….

  26. If you want to keep your doctor, you can; if you want to keep your policy you can, period. If the government wants to raise taxes because of a high temperature reading it can! It makes no difference if it is true or not because they can make up any number they want and that lie will last as long as the want, period.

  27. Total bullshit.

    These clowns believe that they can accurately measure the temperature worldwide, and make a claim of a trend, when the period in question is like a grain of sand in the immense beach of time.

    Wake me when the opening act is over.

  28. Sad but true but a lot of world’s surface temps are estimated,

    even in the US up to 40% are estimated.

    “Fake temperatures are marked with an “E” in their final database, as seen below in the 2008-2011 January-June data for Cadiz, Ohio.

    https://stevengoddard.files.wordpress.com/2014/12/screenhunter_5152-dec-12-22-23.gif

    Nearly 40% of the 2014 final temperatures are marked with an “E” – which is even larger than the 29% percentage of stations which are completely fake. This indicates that they are also making up temperatures for a large number of stations which actually do have thermometer data.”

    A: Accumulated amount. This value is a total that may include data from a previous month or months (TPCP).
    B: Adjusted Total. Monthly value totals based on proportional available data across the entire month. (CLDD, HTDD)
    E: An estimated monthly or annual total.

    please note that the grey areas represent missing data- hmm i wonder what that means.

    GIss estimate temps up to 1200 kilometres from weather stations around the world.

    Here is what the MET say about that-

    “NASA GISS assumes that temperature anomalies remain coherent out to distances of 1200km from a station”

    I have often assumed things…… but never that NASA GISS are coherent.

  29. I agree that Earth may be going through a global warming phase, but where is the proof that this is not natural and is completely man-made? I read that Earth has gone through numerous global warming and cooling phases, so why, all of a sudden, it must be man-caused global warming this time? And would someone unthaw me out when this global warming is over please??!! Global warming sure makes it cold in the Peoples Republic of Maryland.

  30. I think any climate scientist who is found to be willingly misleading the public should be tried, convicted and then executed. It’s obvious these bastards are lying and doing it to continue to receive their funding since they can’t function in a normal job like a normal person. Their lies are used to support themselves and then they publish this crap which the whole world knows is a lie. Again, if proven to be willingly misleading the public for their own benefit, tried, convicted and executed.

  31. I’m confused, I thought ALL scientists were supportive of the federal government’s assertions of climate change.

    I thought the gubmint got ALL of its data from a scientific community that was entirely in consensus.
