Posted on 01/27/2014 3:36:40 PM PST by Signalman
In a joint press conference NOAA and NASA have just released data for the global surface temperature for 2013. In summary they both show that the pause in global surface temperature that began in 1997, according to some estimates, continues.
Statistically speaking there has been no significant trend in global temperatures over this period. All these years fall within the error bars of 0.1 deg C. The trend is less than this and is statistically insignificant. There is no statistical case for representing the post-1997 data as anything other than a constant line. The graphs presented at the press conference omitted those error bars.
When asked for an explanation for the pause by reporters Dr Gavin Schmidt of NASA and Dr Thomas Karl of NOAA spoke of contributions from volcanoes, pollution, a quiet Sun and natural variability. In other words, they dont know.
NASA has a temperature anomaly of 0.61 deg C above the average of 14.0 (1951 80) making it the 7th warmest year. Note that it is identical to 2003 and only 0.01 above 2009 and 2006. Taking into account the errors there has been no change since last year.
NOAA also has 2013 as the 4th warmest year, at 0.62 deg C above the global 20th century average of 13.9 deg C.
Note that only 0.09 deg C separates their top ten warmest years. Each year has an associated error of 0.1 deg.
Given that the IPCC estimates that the average decadal increase in global surface temperature is 0.2 deg C, the world is now 0.3 deg C cooler than it should have been.
Global warming theories created or saved.
Let’s throw them all a huge country - western - punk - heavy metal - reggae - bluegrass - jazz - fusion - rock - pop - rap - hip hop - opera concert.
Thank them for doing such a great job with all the global warming donations and carbon credits.
And let them know they can all stop now. Mission accomplished.
Job well done.
Standstill my frozen arse! -20 again tonight in the Twin Cities. Worse in the outlying areas.
If you like your global warming deception you can keep your global warming deception.
What are you complaining about? It’s winter, y’all.
I am freezing my azz off with temperatures between 40 and 50.
Expecting temperatures in the high 20’s tonight and sleet tomorrow. Our mayor has already mentioned that she may shut the place down to protect us from ourselves and nature.
Feels colder to me.
Now, it turns out the warming was not real (duh). If it would do any good, I'd like to sit down with these poor people and quietly explain to them that what they "felt" was psychological suggestion, cognitive dissonance, pathological mendacity, deceit. In short, a vile hoax.
Shovel ready Climate Models.
Thank God for this cool weather. AC is busted. Give me a month to save up for it.
Plus 74 is perfect. Hey algore, I vote 74, since you think we can manipulate the weather.
The scientists DON’T KNOW. The only thing settled is the POLITICAL SCIENCE fraud being pushed by the socialist democratic left.
You think they will still call it a “pause” when they reach the 50 year point or will they hold out for 100 years?
1 day with global warming is as a 1000 years.
same with evolution, this is something that takes millions and millions of years to accomplish. Just write your checks out to shine-on me.
Neat how the recent clingers have moved the disaster out a long ways to keep from being proven so wrong on such a regular basis...
