What Global Warming, What Climate Change?

In the ten years since the new millennium global land mean temperatures have barely increased but even so the decade was the warmest for both land and sea temperatures, although the rate of temperature rise seems to have declined when compared with the rate of the previous decade. The last decade saw climate extremes and weather extremes that were greater than ever recorded.

  • There were more heat waves and more people died from heat waves
  • The decade was the second wettest since 1901
  • Sea levels rose at the rate of 3mm per annum,
  • There was a record decline in Arctic sea ice
  • Every year of the decade except 2008 was among the 10 warmest on record
  • Most countries had their warmest decade in 2001-2010.
  • No country reported a nationwide average decadal temperature cooler than the long term average
  • Throughout most of the decade the sun has been at its solar minimum, when temperatures would normally decline.

  1. A short term memory is as bad as a little knowledge is dangerous, if one follows the results of a system of non science and corpirate calamity, so corrupt, the effects of this science upon society, could be our undoing.

    Its all happened before Rob, but the true science is being blocked and for a reason, the planet can look after itself, its the inhabitants who are their own problem.

  2. A simple equation at http://climatechange90.blogspot.com/2013/05/natural-climate-change-has-been.html calculates average global temperatures since they have been accurately measured world wide (about 1895) with an accuracy of 90%, irrespective of whether the influence of CO2 is included or not. The equation uses a single external forcing, a proxy which is the time-integral of sunspot numbers. A graph in that paper shows the calculated temperature anomaly trajectory overlaid on measurements.

    ‘The End of Global Warming’ at http://endofgw.blogspot.com/ expands recent (since 1996) temperature anomaly measurements by the five reporting agencies and includes a graph showing the growing separation between the rising CO2 and not-rising average global temperature.
