Hottest year claims? Media Ignores The Satellite Record Showing No Warming Since 1998

-

By Paul Homewood

There must be something wrong with my old eyes, as I can’t seem to find any mention of the satellite record, which shows no such thing.

To recap, both UAH and RSS say that atmospheric temperatures for 2016 statistically tied with 1998, at just 0.02C higher.

Neither 2014 or 2015 were anywhere near being a record.

Satellite measurements of global temperatures are regarded as much more comprehensive, accurate and unaffected by UHI, as Roy Spencer explained in 2014.

The BBC shows the map provided by NOAA, with lots of red on it to convince us how hot it has been.

However, if they were more honest, they might have showed the Land-Only map, which underlines the fact that most of the world’s land mass has no thermometer coverage at all.

Of course, there might be good reasons why the satellite record has diverged from the surface data in recent years, but is it not the job of the BBC to provide us with all the facts, and not just the ones that suit its political agenda?
