The left-wing have been clamouring that 2014 was the warmest year on record.
Now it appears that the media who all clamoured that last year was the warmest on record and the useful idiots on the left who have hyped the NASA report haven’t actually read the report…which says that they are only 38 per cent sure this was true.
The Nasa climate scientists who claimed 2014 set a new record for global warmth last night admitted they were only 38 per cent sure this was true.
In a press release on Friday, Nasa‚Äôs Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) claimed its analysis of world temperatures showed ‚Äė2014 was the warmest year on record‚Äô.
The claim made headlines around the world, but yesterday it emerged that GISS‚Äôs analysis ‚Äď based on readings from more than 3,000 measuring stations worldwide ‚Äď is subject to a margin of error. Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all.
Yet the Nasa press release failed to mention this, as well as the fact that the alleged ‚Äėrecord‚Äô amounted to an increase over 2010, the previous ‚Äėwarmest year‚Äô, of just two-hundredths of a degree ‚Äď or 0.02C. The margin of error is said by scientists to be approximately 0.1C ‚Äď several times as much.
As a result, GISS‚Äôs director Gavin Schmidt has now admitted Nasa thinks the likelihood that 2014 was the warmest year since 1880 is just 38 per cent. However, when asked by this newspaper whether he regretted that the news release did not mention this, he did not respond. Another analysis, from the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) project, drawn from ten times as many measuring stations as GISS, concluded that if 2014 was a record year, it was by an even tinier amount.
Once of the great warmist theories about the missing heat that is causing the “pause” in global warming, something everyone except the most brainwashed now admit to is that the oceans are soaking up all the spare heat and it is hiding in deep water.
Except it isn’t, as NASA has just proven.
The cold waters of Earth‚Äôs deep ocean have not warmed measurably since 2005, according to a new NASA study, leaving unsolved the mystery of why global warming appears to have slowed in recent years.
Scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, analyzed satellite and direct ocean temperature data from 2005 to 2013 and found the ocean abyss below 1.24 miles (1,995 meters) has not warmed measurably. Study coauthor Josh Willis of JPL said these findings do not throw suspicion on climate change itself.
“The sea level is still rising,” Willis noted. “We’re just trying to understand the nitty-gritty details.”
In the 21st century, greenhouse gases have continued to accumulate in the atmosphere, just as they did in the 20th century, but global average surface air temperatures have stopped rising in tandem with the gases. The temperature of the top half of the world’s oceans — above the 1.24-mile mark — is still climbing, but not fast enough to account for the stalled air temperatures.
Many processes on land, air and sea have been invoked to explain what is happening to the “missing” heat. One of the most prominent ideas is that the bottom half of the ocean is taking up the slack, but supporting evidence is slim. This latest study is the first to test the idea using satellite observations, as well as direct temperature measurements of the upper ocean. Scientists have been taking the temperature of the top half of the ocean directly since 2005, using a network of 3,000 floating temperature probes called the Argo array. ¬† Read more »
James Delingpole, who is now the face of Breitbart London writes about a new study about global warming by 40 ex-NASA scientists that shows that even if we burn all the world’s recoverable fossil fuels it will still only result in a temperature rise of less than 1.2 per cent.
In contrast to the alarmist claims, the planet is not in danger of catastrophic man made global warming.
So say¬†The Right Climate Stuff Research Team, a group of retired NASA Apollo scientists and engineers – the men who put Neil Armstrong on the moon – in a new report.
“It’s an embarrassment to those of us who put NASA’s name on the map to have people like James Hansen popping off about global warming,” says the project’s leader Hal Doiron.
Doiron was one of¬†40 ex NASA employees – including seven astronauts¬†– who wrote in April 2012 to NASA administrator Charles Bolden protesting about the organization’s promotion of climate change alarmism, notably via its resident environmental activist James Hansen.¬† Read more »
The latest theory for the “pause” in global warming is…wait for it…coincidence. I kid you not…now there are 10 supposed reason for the “pause”…here they are:
There is a new paper by Gavin Schmidt et al that comes in as #10 in the growing list of explanations for ‚Äėthe pause‚Äô. Now that we have a top ten list, let‚Äôs review:
- New study claims hi caused ‚Äúthe pause‚ÄĚ in global temperature ‚Äď but AGW will return!
- THE OCEANS ATE OUR GLOBAL WARMING!¬†Trenberth and Fasullo, 2013. But the heat will come back when you least expect it.
- Chinese coal caused the ‚Äėpause‚Äô, published in¬†the¬†proceedings of the National Academy of Science. The¬†study blamed Chinese coal use¬†for the lack of global warming. Global warming proponents essentially claimed that coal use is saving us from dangerous global warming. Kaufmann et al 2011.
- The¬†Montreal Protocol caused the ‚Äėpause‚Äė,¬†which reduced CFC‚Äôs ‚Äď but warming will return soon. Estrada 2013.
- Cowtan and Way‚Äôs (2013) underrepresented Arctic stations get adjustment to fiddle the numbers so that ‚Äėpause‚Äô never existed, but¬†not so fast. It seems all¬†isn‚Äôt quite as it seems. Dr. Judith Curry¬†doesn‚Äôt think much of it either. ¬†¬† Read more »
I wonder how the warmists are going to spin this news…and they won;t be able to blame humans for it either.
The Sun’s activity is at its lowest for 100 years, scientists have warned.
They say the conditions are eerily similar to those before the Maunder Minimum, a time in 1645 when a mini ice age hit, Freezing London’s River Thames.
Researcher believe the solar lull could cause major changes, and say there is a 20% chance it could lead to ‘major changes’ in temperatures.
‘Whatever measure you use, solar peaks are coming down,’ Richard Harrison of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire told the BBC.
‘I’ve been a solar physicist for 30 years, and I’ve never seen anything like this.’
He says the phenomenon could lead to colder winters similar to those during the Maunder Minimum. ¬† Read more »
