    Excellent one stop information spot. good work!

  2. NikFromNYC says:

    The three longest continuous single site US thermometer records are included in this collection: http://oi49.tinypic.com/rc93fa.jpg

    They show no modern change in trend whatsoever.

    Anthony,
    Thanks, this is an excellent repository for valuable information that really puts things into perspective.
    You don’t have an idea of the nunber of former believers that have been converted since I started sending them real data and information from your site.

    It is a crime that so many people have been misled by the main stream media and the likes of our politicians and Al Gore.

  4. ?? Extremes of Temperature as a Percent ??
    Who ever put those charts together should be chagrined. It would only make some sense if you measured in Kelvin from Absolute Zero, but with -60% anomalies, that cannot be the case.

    Show me the data. I want to see the baseline as well as the “anomaly”.

    The data source is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) – National Climatic Data Center (NCDC):
    http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/oa/climate/severeweather/extremes.html

    It is the “U.S. Climate Extremes Index (CEI)”
    http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/extremes/cei/index.html

    found on this page:
    http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/extremes/

    The FTP site for the CEI images is here:

    Please let us know what you find.

  6. Data Inflorescence. Somewhere I remember having read that mass species extinctions were immediately preceded by an ‘inflorescence’ in species variation, populations and level of weirdness, to use a nontechnical term for the proliferation of bizarre forms. We get data inflorescence. Our data collection matches anything the dino world produced as an announcement of their demise. The variation of data, its explosion of volume and (just look at these graphs!) proliferation of weirdness at once stimulates the observer, confuses the analyst and bodes badly for our ability to survive the arguments and conflicts this material fosters.

    We’ll stew in our own data-enriched arguments while our social and political and economic order collapses around us. Result: Mass species extinction!

    SirRuncibleSpoon,

    What? Firstly, “an inflorescence is a group or cluster of flowers arranged on a stem that is composed of a main branch or a complicated arrangement of branches.”:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inflorescence

    Thus an inflorescence is a natural form and portends nothing sinister, certainly not mass species extinctions.

    Secondly, it appears that you have somehow reviewed the graphs and graphics on this page and arrived at the conclusion that it “matches anything the dino world produced as an announcement of their demise.” This is confounding as it is impossible to match the current data to anything that occurred prior to the extinction of dinosaurs, as this occurred approximately 65 million years ago and we have no comparable data, or proxies covering similar timescales or variables from this period.

    Finally, putting aside the incoherence of your prior statements, can you please review the graphs and graphics on this page and indicate the specific graphs and/or graphics where you see a discernible increase in climatic variability?

    Anthony,

    The chart Extremes in One Day Precipitation is incomprehensible. It needs to be explained.

  9. Marlow Metcalf says:

    We need a hurricane history chart. The NOAA tropical cyclone space is empty.

  10. Tom Wiita says:

    Wouldn’t it be nice to have USA surface temperature history here somewhere? This has the satellite data, which is great. But why not have USHCN, GISS, NOAA surface temperature history for USA? The global temp history page does a great job for global, why not do same for USA? If it’s already here somewhere, sorry, I missed it.

    Because also, then we could add the short but growing series for the Climate Reference Network. I’ve found the usual sites that show everything about that program except data before last month. It would be great to follow the trend of those stations, and I’m hoping someone has found a site to get that data from to display it in useable form. Would be great to compare to the other more usual series.
