Atmospheric CO2 Rises While Temperatures Fall
The HadCRUT dataset is the “gold standard” by which the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) measures global temperatures.
HadCRUT consists of monthly sea temperature records compiled by the Hadley Centre of the UK Met Office and land temperature records compiled by the Climate Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, hence the acronym HadCRUT.
The collected data is then variance corrected and the gaps in data filled in by interpolation, if you are interested in the process then Wkikipedia provides a reasonably good over view of how the process works.
The latest dataset is a major embarrassment for Big Green and their propaganda machine, according to the computer models and Green soothsayers increased levels of atmospheric CO2 should have caused unprecedented mean global temperature rises:
HadCRUT is the IPCC’s gold-standard for measuring global temperatures – over last 15 years (180 months) the globe has cooled with a -0.24C per century trend, not warmed as predicted
HadCRUT released their latest global temperature dataset today, which confirmed what both NOAA and NASA reported earlier this month – that global temps declined during July 2012.
In addition, the plot of the HadCRUT and CO2 data for the last 15 years, through July 2012, is very revealing.
Contrary to what the mainstream press reports and exaggerates about “global warming,” the world has actually been in a stable-to-cooling phase since the El Nino temperature spike of 1997/98.
Of course, if the NYTimes or WAPO or CNN or CBS or the AP were ever to report the actual cooling trend over the last 15 years (despite the massive amounts of human CO2 emissions) this would establish that they have been grossly misleading the public for years about consensus “global warming.”
This is not the first time that the warmists gold standard data has failed to support their fear and environmental Armageddon scenarios, in April 2012 HadCRUT showed that the mean global temperature has remained static at 14.44 +/- 0.16 deg, which is considerably different to the continued increase of .2C per year predicted by the warming alarmist computer models.
Then earlier this month the IPCC’s own data showed that the global mean temperature had dropped an unprecedented 1°C Since 1990, ignored by the warmists who instead countered with a dire prediction of a 12°F rise by 2100.
The warming alarmists own data shows conclusively that their hypothesis of CO2 causing increases in the mean global temperature is wrong, but do not expect a change of story from the warming alarmists, instead it will be business as usual.
As their junk science continues to decay expect more and more desperate event attribution from the warmists: “My hamster died” warming alarmists announce that “Hamsters will be extinct by 2039 due to Climate Change“, at the same time the denigration of non believers will continue with unbelievably stupid peer reviewed studies like this one by Stephan Lewandowsky:
Professorial fellow Stephan Lewandowsky thinks that skeptics who are “greatly involved” in the climate debate believe any kind of conspiracy theory, including that the moon landings never happened, that AIDS is not due to HIV, and that smoking doesn’t cause cancer. But he didn’t find this out by asking skeptics who are “greatly involved” in the climate debate or by reading their popular sites. He “discovered” this by asking 1,000 visitors to climate blogs. Which blogs? He expertly hunted down skeptics, wait for it… here:
Nothing like asking warming alarmists what they think of non believers, the result would be much the same if you were to pose the same question in a religious context, though it is more a slight case of shooting yourself in the foot when you accuse people who landed on the moon, and who dont buy into the Great Global Warming Scam, of being part of a conspiracy that thinks the moon landings were faked on a Hollywood lot.
