Decade of 2000s was warmest ever, scientists say
AP on Yahoo ^ | 12/7/09 | Charles J. Hanley - ap

Posted on 12/07/2009 8:46:47 AM PST by NormsRevenge

It dawned with the warmest winter on record in the United States. And when the sun sets this New Year's Eve, the decade of the 2000s will end as the warmest ever on global temperature charts.

Warmer still, scientists say, lies ahead.

Through 10 years of global boom and bust, of breakneck change around the planet, of terrorism, war and division, all people everywhere under that warming sun faced one threat together: the buildup of greenhouse gases, the rise in temperatures, the danger of a shifting climate, of drought, weather extremes and encroaching seas, of untold damage to the world humanity has created for itself over millennia.

...

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told them they had "a powerful opportunity to get on the right side of history" at a year-ending climate conference in Copenhagen.

Once again, however, disunity might keep the world's nations on this side of making historic decisions.

To all those who cheered "Peace in our time!" in 1939..

Please Don't be fooled again.

A concerted effort by the Left to take over the globe in the name of climate change is nothing more than a power play.. a means to an end, total control.

If the earth has been cooling for the past 10 years, how can it be the warmest decade?

Yep, the alarmists are out in full cry on the eve of Copenhagen.

Never mind that the Earth is in fact cooling at the moment, or any other measure of objective reality. For instance, that polar sea ice is on the increase.

Instead, let’s use “climate stations” set up in the middle of urban heat islands to “prove” the world is warming!

I have a feeling that common sense will prevail, and sooner rather than later. Climategate is certainly helping the cause.

Brainwashing masses is nothing new.

Using music and art to further a fraudian effort , old as the hills.

Appealing to core emotions.. nothing more. Very dangerous.

You also need to forget that CO2 acting as a “greenhouse gas” also violates the laws of physics. Like Algore said, “We are in control, we can change the laws”.

I believe if you place your thermometer in the middle of a concrete parking lot during the peak daytime summer temperatures and place your thermometer next to your warm home during the winter, one could conclude from the daily readings that the earth is warming considerably.

From the CRU data dump:
From: Phil Jones xxxxxxxx To: John Christy xxxxxxxx Subject: This and that Date: Tue Jul 5 15:51:55 2005 “The scientific community would come down on me in no uncertain terms if I said the world had cooled from 1998. OK it has but it is only 7 years of data and it isn’t statistically significant.”

“Decade of 2000s was warmest ever, scientists say”

There isn’t one single scientist quoted in the article. I guess they couldn’t find anyone from CRU to open their mouth so they just made it up.

This is 1984. AP is despicable!!

They cannot prove that it is currently as warm as the medieval warm period when they were growing grapes in Britain. Are they growing grapes in Britain? The medieval warm period was followed by the little ice age, which, didn’t end until the nineteenth century.

The warming seas were growing more acid, too, from absorbing carbon dioxide, the biggest greenhouse gas in an overloaded atmosphere.

How many boxtops did it take for them to pay for their science education?

It is those who control the editorial and social content of these sites that is to blame, them antoying woth follies wild those who lead and deceive them, in some instances, buy them off.. nothing new..

sadly tho, the stakes are so high and the costs so immense, they don’t see how their toying with facts will cost us all dearly in the end.. and for what? so some fat arses can cash in their carbon credits and get rich beyond belief.

So release all the primary data. I know there are a lot of talented programmers out there, many of them here at FR that could do an outstanding job analyzing the raw data. I just want to see the averaged measured seasonal temperatures for as far back as we have been measuring, and I want to see that data as a function of urban vs. rural location. I also want to see the correlation between tree ring data, measured temperatures, and rainfall.

You know what blows me away? Is that way back when I first heard about the mmgw theory, just on the face of it, it seemed unbelievable. Before looking at any empirical data or research, it just defies logic. I guess if you live in downtown Los Angeles and you look out to see 8 factories in one direction and an 8 lane hwy packed with cars in the other and you haven’t traveled much and think to yourself “this is our world”, it might seem like CO2 emissions could alter the weather.

But to anyone who has even a slight grasp on just how big the world is, and what a small percentage of it is even inhabited by humans at all, it just seems impossible. I was willing to look at the research though and be objective and it’s so obvious what a fraud this is.

If the earth has been cooling for the past 10 years, how can it be the warmest decade?

It sounds impossible but it's not. Let's say the temperature was increasing at 0.02 degree per year during the 90's peaking at an all time high in 1999. So the average during the 90's would be the 99 peak minus 0.1 degree. Then assume that throughout the 2000's, it declined at -0.01 degree per year for ten years. Then the average for the decade would be the 99 peak minus 0.05 degree, or 0.05 degree higher than the 90's average.

This only how it's mathematically possible that the last decade can be warmer than the average for the nineties, despite a decade of cooling. It still wouldn't be the warmest decade EVER unless the peak I mentioned was an all time high. 1998 was believed for some time to be an all time high, but the discovery some erroneous or falsified NASA data caused corrections of the 90's, and I believe the 1930's are now viewed as the warmest decade in the twentieth century.

And, it assumes we have reliable temperature data, which in the current politicized "climate" I highly doubt. Witness CRU.

AND, even if the data are real, and the last one was a warm decade, that's still a LONG way from proving AGW, or even GW for that matter.

In fact, since there is a high probability that the people we're dealing with are crooked, perhaps the last decade was "warmer" than the previous one only because the corrections I mentioned were applied to the 90's but they've so far "forgotten" to apply them to this decade. Kind of like when MADD lobbies Klinton, the Tyrant in Chief, to lower the DUI level, then claims there's been a sharp increase in DUI.
