Latest Gobal Temperatures

After another check I must say it is very difficult for an AGW sceptic to get data which is not potentially manipulated. They measure with one station for 20 years, then close it and use another station in a different area, altitude etc. or they use relative data and combine it with absolute data and then create “homogenized” data. In other words clean East Anglia science.  It looks like there is a lot of contradicting data, measured at close to or on surface and in the lower atmosphere.  There is already a flood of articles on the Net.

I trust the latest temperature data from satellites in the lower atmosphere published by Dr. Roy Spencer:

Temperature Anomalies ( they declare a period as “normal” and then compare new data to this average temp):

CRU School of Environmental Sciences Faculty of Science
University of East Anglia :

Until the 1970s, seasurface temp. observations were made entirely from ships. Different ships used different measurement methods over the years, each of which potentially had different biases. More here

Ocean Surface Temperatures of both hemispheres :

and an interesting article in Nature :

An abrupt drop in Northern Hemisphere sea surface temperature around 1970

…. Here we show that the hemispheric differences in temperature trends in the middle of the twentieth century stem largely from a rapid drop in Northern Hemisphere sea surface temperatures of about 0.3 °C between about 1968 and 1972. The timescale of the drop is shorter than that associated with either tropospheric aerosol loadings or previous characterizations of oscillatory multidecadal variability. The drop is evident in all available historical sea surface temperature data sets, is not traceable to changes in the attendant metadata, and is not linked to any known biases in surface temperature measurements. The drop is not concentrated in any discrete region of the Northern Hemisphere oceans, but its amplitude is largest over the northern North Atlantic.

Royal Society had to rewrite Guide on Climate Change

The UK’s leading scientific body has been forced to rewrite its guide on climate change and admit that it is not known how much warmer the Earth will become. The Royal Society has updated its guide after 43 of its members complained that the previous version failed to take into account the opinion of climate change sceptics :

“The Royal Society has produced a new guide to the science of climate change. The guide summarises the current scientific evidence on climate change and its drivers, highlighting the areas where the science is well established, where there is still some debate, and where substantial uncertainties remain.”
