Satellites: Warming pause continues & 2014 not the hottest

Special to Climate Depot

    There was nothing special about the temperature of the Earth in 2014.  In fact, there has been no meaningful warming since last century.

    This is true no matter what set of temperature data you examine.

    However, when you examine the data recorded from satellites, the flaws in the warming narrative become even clearer.

    Satellites are considered by many to be the best available source of temperature data.  Local measurements are subject to many sorts of errors.  Temperature stations tend to be located near population centers where they are subject to the urban heat island effect.  Weather balloons, temperature stations and buoys leave huge gaps in coverage.  Climate researchers then fill in the their best guesses as to what temperature should be for the huge areas where no readings exist. This creates opportunity for honest error — or worse.

    Satellites, on the other hand, record temperatures over the entire Earth.  Their coverage is more complete and the data they yield is much more difficult to manipulate.

    The graph above shows us that there has been no meaningful warming since the 1990′s.  Today’s school children have never lived in a warming world.

    The graph below shows how badly 33 UN IPCC climate models fare when compared against actual measurements.  Keep in mind that the earlier period, when the models and temperatures appear to line up, is from before the models were created.

    Hindsight we know is 20/20.

    After the models were created, and we were told told the whole thing was settled, global temperatures inconveniently remained cooler than projected.

    Go ahead, examine the data for yourself.  Compare it to the computer model projections.

    That’s what the warming crowd fears most.

    Bill Maher: GMO and Vax Skepticism Are OK, But Not Climate Change Skepticism

    “The analogy that I see all the time is that if you ask any questions [about vaccines], you are the same thing as a global warming denier. I think this is a very bad analogy, because I don’t think all science is alike. I think climate science is rather straightforward because you’re dealing with the earth, it’s a rock…climate scientists, from the very beginning, have pretty much said the same thing, and their predictions have pretty much come true. It’s atmospherics, and it’s geology, and chemistry. That’s not true of the medical industry. I mean, they’ve had to retract a million things because the human body is infinitely more mysterious” he stated.

    Weekly Standard Senior Writer John McCormack then pointed out that there are legitimate scientists, such as Dr. Richard Lindzen, who are skeptical of man-made climate change theories, but that there were no serious vaccine-skeptic professors, to which Maher rebutted “the ones who are skeptics [on climate change], usually are paid off by the oil industry.” Maher then complained about “this era we live in, where we can’t ask any questions.” He argued that while vaccines were safe and effective, it was possible that they could be “too much of a good thing” in a similar manner to the overuse of antibiotics.…
