Note: Per John Christy, RSS and UAH anomalies are not comparable because they use different base periods, i.e., “RSS only uses 1979-1998 (20 years) while UAH uses the WMO standard of 1981-2010.”

    Notice that quite a number of charts end in mid-2010, now going on a year ago. Why the dilatory updates?

    Great resource! Digesting diverse measures in detail curls one’s toes.

  2. Monroe says:

    Fantastic!

  3. icecover says:

    Are the graphs real time?

  4. Steeptown says:

    Great set of data.

    But isn’t there a sea level graph going back much further in time (like several hundred or thousand years)?

  5. Rhyl says:

    I have been looking for a much longer time period of history that correlate world events with climatic events eg LIA with famine, plague, witch burnings, crop failures, wars etc and MWPeriod with growth of wealth, cathedral building, improved living conditions, and/or wars, territorial expansion. Can anyone point me to such a resource?

    The concentration of the above graphs starting from about 1970s – which I know is based on introduction of different technologies – seems silly to me because many cycles are much longer than 70s to present. You have to live long enough to experience a change or two in the cycles to see that, really, there is little change occurring that is not natural. The 1950s were extremely wet in Australia, as were the 1970s, the 1990s were also wet and now we are back in the wet cycle again.

    We experienced the 1968-70 drought in Central Qld which caused us to study local area rainfall charts that started in 1863. This revealed there were two 11 year cycles that followed each other. One cycle was wetter, the other dryer; some of these 22 year cycles were dryer than others, while others were wetter. The first half of the 20th Century was generally drier than the second half, and it seemed silly for the Climate Change proponents to choose the beginning of this period as the start of their claims that the changes were dangerous. The climate changes all the time.

    Accepting this and adapting to it is a much more productive way than spending billions to control something beyond our control.

    Are the graphs real time?

    The graphs are “real time” in the sense that each time you refresh a Reference Page it presents the most recent version of the graph/graphic from the 3rd party source page. However, in terms of whether the graphics themselves are really “real-time”, i.e. up to date, current data, etc. this is highly dependent upon the source, e.g. the University of Boulder Sea Level chart;
    http://sealevel.colorado.edu/current/sl_noib_global.jpg

    hasn’t been updated since Release 5 (12/15/2010):

    I have been looking for a much longer time period of history

    The Global Climatic History Page was intended to present only regularly updated measurement data. There are a number of new Reference Pages in progress, but a Global Paleoclimatic History Page will be added to the cue.

    “Accepting this and adapting to it is a much more productive way than spending billions to control something beyond our control.”

    This sentence should bet put up in bright flashing lights. We need to get this message across to our dopey government and of course the MEDIA.

    Well done.

  12. Bruce King says:

    A fantastic accumulation. Should be required reading for high school seniors. The
    references added by comments adds additional information. A great teaching aid.
    A copy of this should be sent to every legislator.

  13. Brian says:

    Even including the few graphs going back to the 1850′s, these are such a short time span that it doesn’t take into account what has happened previously, to compare and look for trends over many thousands of years.
    Its normal for the media to take the information that looks sensational and run with it.

  14. Bob Shapiro says:

    Is there a Global Precipitation historical chart?

  15. Phil Fishman says:

    Something appears to amiss in the chart on global ocean heat content. If it were true that the heat content of the oceans has gone up 300% in 50 years, the pro- AGW people would be ecstatic and broadcasting that fact? unceasingly on all the networks.

  16. Global sea level since 1700: see “Recent global sea level acceleration started over 200 years ago?”, Jevrejeva, S., J. C. Moore, A. Grinsted, and P. L. Woodworth (2008), Geophys. Res. Lett., 35, L08715, doi:10.1029/2008GL033611.

  17. Jason Calley says:

    Looking at the very bottom chart, “20 Year Northern Hemisphere Snow Cover”, I see on odd pattern in the anomaly % graph. The first years, 1992, 1993, 1994, show a well defined cyclical variation, but then, starting in 1995, the anomalies become very chaotic. Why is this? Is this just an artifact of poor data for the first few years?

  18. confluence01 says:

    The title of this page is misleading. Most of this data refers to weather,not climate.and only relate to but ONE datum point on the Climate graph.
    This lack of perspective is very counterproductive and dogs many of the issues raised on this web site.
    Perhaps we should have a reminder graph at the top of this page which shows that our planet is on the downward path of a short [in climate terms] warm interglacial period in our history as we move into the next ice age.?
    And perhaps also data showing the relationship between CO2 levels and global temperature going back millions of years.

    PS: As an aside two questions:: Has anyone yet produced a machine driven by the greenhouse effect?
    And: Does the IPCC definition of FR [forcing rate in W/m^2] comply with thermodynamic law, in that it appears to cross a boundary between two systems without causing a change of state in the recipient system?

  19. confluence01 says: October 7, 2012 at 2:48 am

    The title of this page is misleading. Most of this data refers to weather,not climate.

    Um, not at all. Climate is defined as, “the average course or condition of the weather at a place usually over a period of years as exhibited by temperature, wind velocity, and precipitation”
    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/climate

    Perhaps we should have a reminder graph at the top of this page which shows that our planet is on the downward path of a short [in climate terms] warm interglacial period in our history as we move into the next ice age.?

    When I get time I am going to make this page into the Short-Term Global Climate Page and Create a Long-Term Climate Page.

    The link to “Global Mean Sea Level Change – 1993 to the Present” needs to be fixed. It takes us to a graphic on specific humidity. Thanks..
