Global Temperature Update No global warming for 17 years 11 months
WUWT ^ | 9/4/2014 | Christopher Monckton

Posted on 09/04/2014 9:11:27 PM PDT by Signalman

The Great Pause has now persisted for 17 years 11 months. Indeed, to three decimal places on a per-decade basis, there has been no global warming for 18 full years. Professor Ross McKitrick, however, has upped the ante with a new statistical paper to say there has been no global warming for 19 years.

Whichever value one adopts, it is becoming harder and harder to maintain that we face a “climate crisis” caused by our past and present sins of emission.

Taking the least-squares linear-regression trend on Remote Sensing Systems’ satellite-based monthly global mean lower-troposphere temperature dataset, there has been no global warming – none at all – for at least 215 months.

This is the longest continuous period without any warming in the global instrumental temperature record since the satellites first watched in 1979. It has endured for half the satellite temperature record. Yet the Great Pause coincides with a continuing, rapid increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration.

Pure nonsense. How were the temperatures measured? Where were they measured? What computer model/program was used to evaluate the data? Hogwash. Stop being told what to believe.

I’m with you. This was a movement, never science.

When we’ve got a “flat line” there will be a problem.

It was always only about furthering communism.

Shucks, I am going to have to buy another coat and pack away the muscle shirts.

Muscle shirts were a ripoff anyway. I put one of them on, and they forgot to put the muscles in them.

These are temps taken by satellite. Basically collections of spot readings by microwave and IR cameras, averaged in various ways, hence the several series available. But the various series seem to be in very close agreement.
The wiki on the subject is pretty good.
I don’t see any real issue with the satellite temperature record as such.
It has been, among other things, one of the major factors in keeping what sanity there is in the whole global warming fiasco.

Maybe we should be giving a bunch of “scientists” big wads of taxpayer grant money to figure out why they are getting it so wrong all the time?

To be accurate high school, middle school and elementary school teachers should start the lesson with: “Once upon a time there was this thing called Global Warming... it was a long time ago, before you were born...”

This like the old Soviet Union where stupid lies were forced on people to perpetuate the parasitical ruling class. And Washington DC has never been more parasitical

“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better.

When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is...in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”

Once upon a time a collective psychosis gripped America, Europe and other wealthy nations. Trillions were squandered on global warming due to feeling guilty because they were wealthy
