    Roger Pielke Jr.'s Blog: Evidence that Global Temperature Trends Have Been Overstated

    One of several papers that strongly suggest that there is a serious problem with temperature data collection and the spuriously high temperature trends derived from them.

    Pielke is in the pocket of BigFossil, tears the tags off of mattresses and eats kittens for breakfast. :rolleyes:

    hahaha, you may be right!

    also from the above paper-
    of course every paper that casts doubt on any portion of AGW needs to have the usual disclaimer that it does not cast doubt on AGW

    Really!

    September 2010 UAH Global Temperature Update: +0.60 deg. C Roy Spencer, Ph. D.

    Now look at that graph. All satellite derived temperatures from Dr. Roy Spencer.

    Right now the 13 month running mean equals that of 1998. From 2002 to 2007, the running mean was never below any prior high of the mean, except of that of 1998. The low of 2008, in spite of a strong La Nina, and the quietest sun since 1910, was higher than any other low since 2009 and was even higher than one of the previous high points.

    So, you, and the blogger, state that the satellite temperature is a bit lower than the surface readings. Yet the rate of change is the same for both. For the graph lines for both are the same. Now a couple of tenths of a degree means little when the results are so apparent in the glaciers and polar ice.

    Dont you ever look at the links Old Rocks? It is a peer reviewed paper. I link to blogs because they are not behind paywalls.

    Has there been a increase or decrease in temperature trends since 1998?
