Climate Feedback: How Hot Was 2007?

December 18, 2007

Since the HadCRUT figures are published online, I recommend anybody interested in checking them out for themselves

These are the “land” temperatures globally for example.

Two items of note among many. First of all, why is 2007 not the warmest but just among the warmest years, it’s something that ought to be explained. Can’t anybody spell “plateau”?

Also one thing few seem to have spotted is that southern oceanic temperatures for November are near the lowest in 16 years. Talk about “warming”…

Accuweather Global Warming: World Temperature Analysis so far this Year

Hansen acknowledges that different groups may come up with different results regarding global temperatures.

How different? The HadCRUT set says something so completely different from the GISS statement, one wonders if they are referring to the same planet

If you go there you’ll see the southern ocean temperatures in November are the second-lowest in 16 years, and the only notable warming is in northern landmasses (2nd highest level in the record). Everything else is around or below the median values for more than one decade.

Brett: I understand you are “moderating” but there must be one person at Accuweather allowed to perform computations and report their results…why don’t you identify such a person and ask to report sometimes in January or February on what the various data sets (NOAA, GISS, HadCRUT, etc) actually say, regardless of what their proprietors claim they are saying?
