What a selfish prick! The world is about to come apart and that SOB is making his own personal heated swimming pool out of our environment. I bet he does that for laughs and giggles to remind himself of all the suckers buying into his climate change scam. I bet he pisses in it too right before he calls it a day.

What a bastard.

You obviously didn't get the memo.

Weather warmer than normal? That's global warming.
Weather colder than normal? Global warming.
Wetter than normal? Global warming
Dryer than normal? Global warming.
Normal? Global warming.....

If the earth is going to warm up and kill us all, how come it is so hard to find actual data on the worlds temperature. On another forum im in a GW argument (Australia is climate change mad right now), i cannot for the life of me find actual figures. Lots of charts and tables and stuff, but try and dig lower than that...and nada. Shouldnt this data be out there and readily available?

For instance here some NASA data set, which was about as good as i could find. But even they say:


sources: GHCN 1880-01/2011 + SST: 1880-11/1981 HadISST1

12/1981-01/2011 Reynolds v2

using elimination of outliers and homogeneity adjustment
Notes: 1950 DJF = Dec 1949 – Feb 1950 ; ***** = missing



So even that data has been adjusted, mixed with other data, and put into a model and fiddles with.

Maybe someone with good google skills can find out the earths (recent 50 year)temperature.

Do you want to understand how it's calculated, or just a list of estimated annual average temperatures? Both are out there, in vast quantities.

Of course data has to be processed before it's used. For example, let's say a weather station is moved from one end of an airport to another, or instrumentation is changed. This may change the raw temperature readings that result. To produce information usable for trend analysis, the data has to be adjusted by some offset. Or, let's say an instrument goes on the fritz. That data has to be discarded.

Model is not a dirty word. We all use models, all the time. That said, producing a gridded average of temperature hardly qualifies as modeling.

There are numerous reconstructions of the surface temperature record, professional and amateur, all over the internet. Open Mind and Blackboard have some of the amateur efforts. Warming is rapid and unequivocal.

Who knows? Will anyone put it in the literature? No, never. Even scientists have stupid opinions, especially about things outside of their areas of expertise. Freeman Dyson on climate change or Linus Pauling on politics spring to mind. The test is what they publish and what, of those things they publish, endures.

The sentence above, in bold, enlarged, and underlined, is a pretty strong statement, if somewhat ungrammatical.

Would you care to enlarge upon the "unequivocal" evidence of warming?

10:55 am on FoxNews –– "European officials blame Japan Quake on Global Warming." It took them less than 24 hours from when I asked the question. Our opponents are as predictable as the tide.

...Over 4.5 billion people could die from Global Warming related causes by 2012, as planet Earth accelarates into a greed-driven horrific catastrophe.


The article states this could happen "by 2012", which to me suggests that it would have to start quite a bit prior to 2012 if we are to hit Megadeath 4500. Given that only 8.5 months remain, I'm going to have to see some impressive warming very soon or I just might have to entertain the possibility that the auther is full of shit.

Way to find some nonsense crackpot paper and attribute it to the general scientific community and use that as a tool to smear the people who actually know what the fuck they're talking about.

Isn't anybody dead YET? I have a hankering to do some major league looting after the failed 5/21 Rapture prediction.
Link Posted: 5/26/2011 6:10:44 AM EDT
If only it were true, I honestly don't think it would be bad for humanity to get a bit of a reset. I fully accept that I might be included in the dead, or those I care for, but that doesn't stop me from thinking it would be better for humanity in the long haul. Besides, I have faith in my ability to survive almost anything except incidents that cause instant death. So global warming itself doesn't worry me, the aftermath of the natural disasters it creates don't worry me. The bad luck to be in the path of a tornado or have something hit/land on me during a hurricane? That is a bit tougher to avoid. Sometimes fate calls your number.

French glaicer growing <–– due to global warming

Greenland glaciers growing at above 1500m, although not at coast

Berlingske glacier still growing

Patagonian glacier growing
