  • Global warming?

    Is it going away?

    Why do chicken coops have two doors?
    Because if they had four doors they would be chicken sedans.

    Nobody knows if it's warming, cooling or staying the same.  Except the UN IPCC, who will insist they can explain everything...as long as the money keeps rolling in.

    Still, nice to see Reuters publish an article that doesn't present the issue in a politically correct way.


    Current global warming temperature trend: 0.05ºC per decade, plus or minus 0.1ºC (source: UN IPCC AR5) ...Yes, the error rate is higher than the estimated rate of change.

    "Anthropogenic global warming is a proposed theory whose basic mechanism is well understood, but whose magnitude is highly uncertain. The growing evidence that climate models are too sensitive to CO2 has implications for the attribution of late-20th-century warming and projections of 21st-century climate. If the recent warming hiatus is caused by natural variability, then this raises the question as to what extent the warming between 1975 and 2000 can also be explained by natural climate variability." --Dr. Judith Curry, chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology

      "Pachauri said climate change can have counter-intuitive effects"

       

      Scientist-speak for "who ya gonna believe-me, or the evidence?"

    The article cherry picked the start date for their research. They purposely chose it because it was during an unusually high spike, so they could say "hey look, temperatures have been dropping since 1998!"

    The reality is that the overall temperature trend has continued upward.

      Not Even Close: 2012 Was Hottest Ever in U.S.

      The numbers are in: 2012, the year of a surreal March heat wave, a severe drought in the Corn Belt and a huge storm that caused broad devastation in the Middle Atlantic States, turns out to have been the hottest year ever recorded in the contiguous United States.


      How hot was it? The temperature differences between years are usually measured in fractions of a degree, but last year
