Skip to comments.Unmistakable signs of a warming world (pick it apart)
Posted on 07/29/2010 12:00:56 PM PDT by dila813
Scientific evidence that our world is warming is unmistakable has been released today in the 2009 State of the Climate report, issued by US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
The report draws on data from 10 key climate indicators that all point to that same finding the world is warming.
The 10 indicators of temperature have been compiled by the Met Office Hadley Centre, drawing on the work of more than 100 scientists from more than 20 institutions. They provide, in a one place, a snapshot of our world and spell out a single conclusion that the climate is unequivocally warming.
Relying on data from multiple sources, each indicator proved consistent with a warming world.
AGW = Global Warming?
Don't think so, this is bait and switch. They know they have to show that carbon is causing us to deviate from the warming trend since the last ice age.
Yet what they give us is really ammo that AGW is false. These trends are flat lines, there right in front of us is the missing signal of AGW and it is right from the MET Office.
Notice how they deal in absolute and how the data is cut off even when we know that data exist.
The ranges shown on the graphs are very, very small. A few selective data choices could easily make it look however you wanted.
This crap again? If these people are still trying to sell the already disproven AGW garbage after the fraud has been exposed then no amount of evidence will convince them otherwise. It’s a religion to them, not science.
It is laughable, they made obvious choices to maximize the impact why setting up the straw argument of Global Warming vs AGW which are two different things.
The other "scientists" admitted in their "leaked" emails the earth was getting colder, and they were having trouble hiding their findings. ( Now lets read these e-mails, too, and find out what the truth really is, shall we?)
Here in the hills above Palm Springs it is currently 78 degrees. I have only had to use the A/C twice, and here it is midsummer. The nights are simply amazing, down to the low to mid fifties by morning. Easily the coolest summer in decades. We are 50 miles from the Pacific, but can almost smell it from here. We normally receive a 10% ocean influence, but this year it is over 80%.
I have a house in New Hampshire... more warming, faster please.
More HOT AIR from massage customer Al Gore.
The data that those graps are based have been "adjusted" and just by coincidence the adjustments make the past cooler than the raw data, and the present hotter.
Yes, but it looks like the slipped out and actually gave ammo. Now we have their own numbers to use against them.
I had a great high school teacher in the 60s that had us all read a book entitled “How to Lie with Statistics.”
It taught me lessons I have never forgotten.
The answer to all of this is “follow the effort to tax.”
Thieves want to steal. They steal compulsively. these people are thieves and control freaks.
I am sure it is the small old group.
The only important part of these graphs to scrutinize is the last 15 or so years.
No one has been arguing that it has not warmed since the Little Ice Age. We’ve argued that the warming has not accelerated significantly due to CO2 from man’s activity.
The whole premise of the article is false.
We don't control these things.
Yeah. With a little maneuvering, they could make it look something like.....um...a hockey stick?
Same here, we had 4 days of 90s and the rest of the weeks were highs of 75 with a low of 52.
Weathermen socialist agenda (Oboma & friends).... full text - (http://www.archive.org/stream/YouDontNeedAWeathermanToKnowWhichWayTheWindBlows_925/weather_djvu.txt)
Bingo, that is what I see.
These guys are engaged in blatant misinformation.
Who the hell was measuring sea-temperature in 1900? From where? What instruments did they have?
That might be right. Where I live, it’s been getting warmer since March!
It’s the end of July here in Austin,and we have YET to see a single day of 100 degree readings.
Yep, that damn global warming.
I’m so sick of this BS...everyone in the world knows this is a scam, except those over here who still think they can make money in it.
The Earth has been warming or cooling since it was formed. I do not trust the data presented here (way too many people with an agenda collecting and manipulating data and way too short of a time frame using consistent measurement methods - satellites, ice cores, temperature stations, tree rings, etc.)
So, I suspect that the Earth is changing temperatures based on natural processes that have been happening for eons, but I cannot trust the people who are telling me they are certain that it is heating up and that we are responsible for it.
I’m working on the winter wood, so I don’t want heat!
This is our home, not a vacation place, and I’ll take all the help I can get. Ten tons, or more, of wood to be cut, split, and stacked is necessary, but not a lot of fun. (Of course I can skip the gym thingy whilst on the road later, but that doesn’t make it easy or fun. Heat, 83 now, makes it worst...)
On the other hand, with all the work done, stacked wood everywhere, and the woodpile gone, that beer tastes damned good as I look down from the deck on the results of my work.
No comments from this silly report about the record cold in South America, eh?
Liberals are so stupidly transparent...and somehow people believe them.
One of the great mysteries of the universe.
It is urban heat islands that happen even in small villages. These 200 scientists claim urban heat islands do not exist.
Do you believe measurements of an accuracy of 1 part per thousand that cover 60 years and were provided by a government agency? If so than you will belive anything they tell you.
0bama can... with a little more tax money...
There is no snapshot of the world. What do they do? Go to the Moon and point a remote-sensing thermometer at the Earth? This is just a bunch of wackos.
Of course we’re responsible, there’s none mightier than man. Human’s are the be-all end-all. Just look around- it should be obvious. Beauty and Perfection wherever you look.
I would say that the melting of a mile-thick ice sheet that once covered most of the northern hemisphere is an unmistakable sign of global warming.
Who chose the sets of points and why were THOSE particular sets of points the ones chosen?
Yes, the earth has been on a warming trend since the little ice age. We are now near a peak in terms of the history put together by various direct measurements and proxies. The questions are:
(1) to what extent, if any, has man contributed to this warming trend, and
(2) is there a threshold which, if we pass through it, the earth would simply get hotter (or, is global temperate dynamically unstable outside of its recent range of variation).
The big problem with answering #1 is that there is no concensus explanation of natural variation. Is it due to variations in solar energy (as might be manifested in sun sports)? To variations in the earth’s core (as might be manifested in volcanic activity)? Or to other causes?
As originally propagated, AGW argued that the earth was in some kind of balance prior to man’s discovery of fire. Then, man screwed things up royally.
We now know this earth being in balance viewpoint is false. The current theory is that the earth has been warming up due to natural variation and we have caused it to warm up a bit more. The combination of these two things puts the earth at risk of passing a theoretical and unknown threshold level which, once passed, would result in uninhabitable conditions.
There is no scientific concensus concerning this scenario (and, I don’t think there could be). But, there’s no use to worrying about it, because there’s no getting around the fact that man is going to continue to pump more CO2 into the atmosphere during the next several decades (because all the industrial nations have pledged to do is cut back a bit on their emissions, and the non-industrial nations haven’t pledged any reduction and, in fact, are increasing their emissions faster than the industrial nations are cutting back).
So, we’re going to put the current version of AGW to the test and, I betting, it’ll be proved wrong. But, I recommend laying in a good store of non-perishables and alcohol (medicinal, of course), so as to enjoy however years we might have remaining on this planet.
They used about 5 different starting dates.
Well, in Northern Ohio we have had 11 of 28 days 90 or above. Usually we get only a couple all summer. Only 4 days all month below normal, and only by a few degrees.
Many recent summers we ran the air maybe 2 or 3 days all summer. This month it has been on a lot. About 5 years worth. Just got the electric bill today. Ouch!
So, for everyone who can say they are cooler, someone else can say they are hotter.
Just the movement of one point can make a huge difference (example: Chicago’s official recording from Midway Airport in 1960 to O’Hare, makes a big difference ——any Chicagoan can tell you summertime readings at O’Hare are usually about 5 degrees warmer than Midway).
OK, it is warmer than it was 14,000 years ago.
Are computer models involved in ANY of the data underlying these graphs?
Is any of the data from the discredited sources proven to be fraudulent at "universities" worldwide?
Do any of the sources make the leap from cyclical global warming to Anthropogenic global warming?
Has anyone found a trick to prove that CO2 is a pollutant which actually contributes to global warming?
Are the providers of data still trying to sell imaginary "carbon credits?"
Why am I wasting time going through all the lies and "I need another grant" frauds?
The doofuses with the drug-addled brains think everyone has forgotten the "Little Ice Age! (1300-1870)"
And if they leave it out of their graphs nobody will bring it up.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Today's kindergtarten lesson :
Weather = scores of years
Climate = hundreds of years. Even 5-yr-olds can understand it.
The most interesting information is the fact that even with CO2 amounts having risen over the last 10 years, there has actually been COOLING occuring during that time.
An inconvenient truth, to be sure.
