Chicago's Coldest Winter & Global Warming

Global Warming

Chicago's Coldest Winter & Global Warming

And as such, global temperatures have been flat for over a decadeSays you, the numbers say otherwise. Here's the link to HADCRUT4 global Combined land [CRUTEM4] and marine sea surface temperature (SST): http://www.cru.uea .ac.uk/cru/data/te mperature/HadCRUT4 -gl.dat Load that into Excel as follows: (It takes a little bit to get it reformatted)      |    A    |   B   |                  C                  |   1  | YYYY.xx |   DATA | Formula                             | ... 1801 | 2001.00 | 0 .364 | -0.00047797 9                       | ... 1957 | 2014.00 | 0.507 | =SLOPE(B1956:B$195 8,A1956:A$1958) | 1958 | 2014.08 | 0.299 | =SLOPE(B1957:B$195 8,A1957:A$1958) | Copy the formula in cell [C1958] and paste it on up the column. The earliest you find a negative value is cell [C1801] and so that means the temperature has been essentially flat since January 2001. You can do whatever you like, stand on your head and spit wooden nickles if you want to, but it won't change the facts. Other data sets GISS, UAH etc. give different results, but they're all over a decade.  (Apr 3, 2014 | post #4)

That's right, Global warming must be seen in terms of global temperature, not anecdotal local deviations. And as such, global temperatures have been flat for over a decade. If a trend appears again, it's up for grabs whether it will be increasing or decreasing temperatures. In any case, global temperatures are not on course with the prognostications from the usual crowd. .  (Apr 3, 2014 | post #2)

Sea level rise: It's worse than we thought

A joke? An' here I thought it was fer real. You got me on that one you clever dog  (Mar 15, 2014 | post #3218)

If they jump off the side of a boat, they are already displacing water, since the boat floats, so nothing will happen in that regard, therefore, your article is a bunch of crap.  (Mar 15, 2014 | post #3216)

Sea level rise: It's worse than we thought

So this page http://sealevel.co lorado.edu/ Colorado University's Sea Level Research Group and its raw data page http://sealevel.co lorado.edu/files/2 014_rel1/sl_ns_glo bal.txt and the archives of those pages http://web.archive .org/web/200407191 02733/http://seale vel.colorado.edu/2 004_rel1.2/sl_ib_n s_cu2004_rel1.2_gl obal.txt aren't good enough for you? Just exactly what data pages tell you what you want to hear? I'm curious to find out what that data is. By the way, it looks like you don't know what innumerate means.  (Feb 17, 2014 | post #3208)

Whether you guys are right or wrong boils down to the numbers, and it's arithmetic that tells you what the numbers are saying. You and your fellow travelers don't really want to know what the numbers say.  (Feb 16, 2014 | post #3206)

ExxonMobil's CEO admits global warming is caused by COa

Maybe you should listen to the whole thing. Sounds to me like he doesn't think it's much of a problem. Sounds to me like he says the world's poor will benefit from energy derived from fossil fuels. Sea level rise? He mentions a few inches, not feet or meters. Your argument, if you have one, falls flat.  (Jan 20, 2014 | post #2)

Sea level rise: It's worse than we thought

In the text Hansen & Sato say 5 meters by 2090. and this was written in 2012. Using their doubling every ten years scheme that will come to well over a millimeter per day. And you believe this right?  (Jan 16, 2014 | post #3196)

What forces would be at work to dramatically increase the rate? Where's the energy going to come from to melt all that ice? Or heat all that water? You guys aren't rational.  (Jan 16, 2014 | post #3193)
