SEARCH BLOG: GLOBAL WARMING
I realized after receiving a comment regarding yesterday's post that my sarcasm may have been too subtle.
Let me make it clear: more snow and long stretches of cold weather have not convinced me that there is runaway global warming. As I have explained before, my view is that over this past century we have seen a sine wave oscillation of temperatures...
Compare that with monthly high temperature records for the 50 U.S. states...
Obviously, one can look for an upward trend... or any number of trends... from temperature data, but the fact is that the temperature data is so suspect...
- different data sources [various configurations of ground and satellite equipment]
- inconsistent siting [rooftops, parking lots, next to air conditioner condenser units]
- urban and land use change effects
