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: Read the rest of this entry
The Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research (HadCRUT) has long been the gold standard in climate data used by the IPCC, now a new analysis of the data by the UK Met Office shows there has been no global warming for the last 15 years.
The 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. Read the rest of this entry
