Take two. I tried to bump an old thread -- too bad people are too stupid to read the time stamp because they just have to post their grandpas' youtube video that's going to prove to everyone that they know what's up.
Well guess what, you want to post your skepticism -- do it in this thread:
This is about GISS & NASA saying 2010 was the hottest year on record.
Abstract. We update the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) analysis of global surface
temperature change, compare alternative analyses, and address questions about perception and
reality of global warming. Satellite-observed nightlights are used to identify measurement
stations located in extreme darkness and adjust temperature trends of urban and peri-urban
stations for non-climatic factors, verifying that urban effects on analyzed global change are
small. Because the GISS analysis combines available sea surface temperature records with
meteorological station measurements, we test alternative choices for the ocean data, showing that
global temperature change is sensitive to estimated temperature change in polar regions where
observations are limited. We use simple 12-month (and n×12) running means to improve the
information content in our temperature graphs. Contrary to a popular misconception, the rate of
warming has not declined. Global temperature is rising as fast in the past decade as in the prior
two decades, despite year-to-year fluctuations associated with the El Nino-La Nina cycle of
tropical ocean temperature. Record high global 12-month
Do you have a fancy graph? No one cares. Do you like looking at graphs? Lucky you, here's the data from the GISS analysis, with plenty of them (and yes all the axes are labeled).
