though satellite data has shown no such warming to date.
No, he doesn't. Every current analysis of lower troposphere satellite data (MLS data set) now shows warming consistent with models of the predicted warming due to greenhouse gases in this century.
Anyone who makes the statement that "satellite data don't show warming in the lower atmosphere" has not updated his understanding of the global warming topic since 1999.
Can you be more specific about the MLS data set?
I'm not a climatologist, but I'm looking at several different data sets
that don't quite agree with you.
I don't deny that some warming may be going on. There are so many other extraneous factors that make me doubt the environmentalists who say we're killing our mother earth, etc. Plus, the issue is so politicized.
