A cool new interactive tool from New Scientist allows you to click anywhere on a world map to bring up a graph of the NASA GISS temperature data for that location. It's also an excellent tool to show how dicey the GISS global temperature record is, following years of cooling the past and warming the present, as well as huge extrapolations of non-existent data to the polar regions where most of the alleged global warming took place.
For example, clicking in the area in the Arctic Ocean near Iceland [blue pointer below] shows a warming of ~0.5C over the past 133 years since 1880, yet clicking less than 600 km North of that point shows four times more warming of ~2C, which cannot possibly be correct. Have fun, it's one of the best illustrations yet of the unreliable, inappropriately extrapolated, and up-justed GISS global temperature record.

Nice try, but all this proves is, that earth surface stations are unevenly distributed and of unequal quality. Moreover the warming (or cooling) is not constant on all parts of the globe (check with Roy Spencers UAH measurements.ReplyDelete
I will thank you not to draw paranoid conclusions from these obvious facts.
Of course "earth surface stations are unevenly distributed and of unequal quality." and that is one of the points of this post. Hansen's claim that almost all the global warming occurred in the Arctic is bogus because he doesn't have any data there and extrapolates from warmer temperatures up to thousands of km south.Delete
Yes,well... either you postulate an army of masked AGW activists, surreptitiously pushing thermometers on black asphalt in the full sun, dismantling thousand weather stations over the last thirty years and falsifying data all over the world, including satellite measurements and computer programs...ReplyDelete
... or you apply Occams razor.
Congrats, you win the award for asinine comment of the day. Those are not the 2 possible postulates and you know it.Delete
Suggest you go troll over at Steven Goddard's site instead.
