    Reality

    APRIL 2010 UAH Global Temperature Update: +0.50 deg. C Roy Spencer, Ph. D.

    The global-average lower tropospheric temperature continues warm: +0.50 deg. C for April, 2010, although it is 0.15 deg. C cooler than last month. The linear trend since 1979 is now +0.14 deg. C per decade.

    Arctic temps (not shown) continued a 5-month string of much above normal temps (similar to Nov 05 to Mar 06) as the tropics showed signs of retreating from the current El Nino event. Antarctic temperatures were cooler than the long term average. Through the first 120 days of 1998 versus 2010, the average anomaly was +0.655 in 1998, and +0.602 in 2010. These values are within the margin of error in terms of their difference, so the recent global tropospheric warmth associated with the current El Nino has been about the same as that during the peak warmth of the 1997-98 El Nino.

    Departure from an average temperature using 1979 to 1998 as reference years. Also they calibrated the gages on earth before launching. Does anyone see a margin for error there? How about internal temps of the satellite effecting the data?

    Remember the movie "Maverick" with Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster?

    After promising to help a wagon train get back their stolen belongings, an argument ensues over how they were going to track the 'hostile indians' whom Bret insisted were just thugs masquerading as indians.

    Mel: You see that hawk over there? (Gesturing with pistol)
    Jodie: Oh! Don't shoot the hawk!
    Mel: Relax, I'm not gonna shoot the hawk. But do you know what that hawk means?
    Jodie: No....?
    Mel: Nothing. It means nothing. But you didn't know that did you?
    Jodie slaps Mel

    Noticing a parallel?

    We ain't talkin' movies, dumbo. If you look at the graph in the article, you will see that the temperatures worldwide have been steadily rising with the natural variations imposed on that rise.

    Not only that, Dr. Roy Spencer is a skeptic, but has to report the numbers correctly, as he has already been caught in a very embarrasing error in reporting the numbers.
