A Pat on the Back for Latitude

I’m going to break my arm patting my back and Lat’s.

The other day I posted this……

This is too damned funny.  Here we are, using the last ten years of BEST’s data.


But,…. but,…… BEST proved…..

Least squares trend line; slope = -0.00351819 per year 

Well, heck.  Yep, hotting right on up there.



If you click on the link you can see where Lat encourages posting this all over the place.  He did.  Today, http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2055191/Scientists-said-climate-change-sceptics-proved-wrong-accused-hiding-truth-colleague.html

Anthony and Steve have carried the Mail story already.  I’m sure we’ll hear more about it later.

Thanks Lat, we don’t have any idea how much this impacted the discussion.  But, it did impact it.

  1. With the double dip La Nina and -PDO in process isn’t it going to be cooling for a couple decades?

    • suyts says:

      Well, the PDO should impact the arctic, but, who knows how long the La Nina will be going? But, yeh, I think it will the temps will continue as they have for some time. But, I really such at predictions. AAM, its great seeing you here!

    Excellent Skeletor.

  3. Mike Davis says:

    Did JC actually ask to have her name removed from the papers or was she just saying she was distancing herself from the results. There is a difference, the first is action needed and the second is just a show.

  4. Mike Davis says:

    This entire charade has been very revealing about many of the so called sceptics.

  5. Latitude says:

    The science story is just the same old same old…..
    ..I mean, what did anyone really expect from Muller in the first place

    The big story is hiding it from his co-author.
    Dr. Curry’s name is second on every one of those papers.

    Not consulting with her, not even a short email, shows what a slimy deviate he really is……….

  6. The flatline trend is caused by the outlier April 2010 sample; leave it out and you get 1.4K/century, basically the same as the long term trend from everything else:


    More at WUWT when they get round to moderating it!



    • suyts says:

      Yeh, its a strange dip. But, that’s trends and numbers for ya…….. Paul, did you have any knowledge as to whether or not they plan on updating their data base? It seems an awful strange place to just end the data.

    • Paul Clark,

      Yes, one does need to drop data to make the case for global warming. We’ve all been seeing all sorts of playing with data. ‘Global warming’ is replete with data manipulation.


  7. Latitude says:

    But Paul, a spike is a spike and it is what it is…..

    Leave out the spikes in the ice core data and you get completely different result too………..

  8. suyts says:

    lol, Paul, you’ve just opened a huge can of worms!

    Did you run the land vs total globe plots?

  9. Yes, and it’s not pretty:


    WTI (my average of 4 land-ocean datasets): 1.5K/century
    BEST: 2.7K/century

    This is the real news here, not this 10 year + unfinished data stuff.



  10. suyts says:

    Arrhhggg!!!! So little time today….. so much to cover!

  11. Mike Davis says:

    Anything with thirty years of temperature data is not going to be pretty and there should be many thirty year periods throughout history with similiar or greater trends both positive and negative.

  12. There’s so much being made out of tenths of a degree. But the commotion doesn’t add up to much when compared to what has happened in the past. It was warmer on earth 1000 years ago than it is now. These tenths of a degree are irrelevant. But they do add up to a lot of money, and face time on tv, for some people.
