Proof that the recent slowdown is statistically significant (correcting for autocorrelation)

Guest essay by Sheldon Walker Introduction In my last article I attempted to present evidence that the recent slowdown was statistically significant (at the 99% confidence level). Some people raised objections to my results, because my regressions did not account for autocorrelation in the data. In response to these objections, I have repeated my analysis…

Proof that the recent global warming slowdown is statistically significant (at the 99% confidence level)

Guest analysis by Sheldon Walker NOTE: An update to this article is here: https://wattsupwiththat.com/2018/01/17/proof-that-the-recent-slowdown-is-statistically-significant-correcting-for-autocorrelation/ Introduction In this article I will present convincing evidence that the recent slowdown was statistically significant (at the 99% confidence level). I will describe the method that I used in detail, so that other people can duplicate my results. By definition,…

Another paper confirms “the pause” in global warming – cites issues with methods of obtaining average temperature

Spatiotemporal Divergence of the Warming Hiatus over Land Based on Different Definitions of Mean Temperature Chunlüe Zhou & Kaicun Wang Abstract Existing studies of the recent warming hiatus over land are primarily based on the average of daily minimum and maximum temperatures (T2). This study compared regional warming rates of mean temperature based on T2 and T24 calculated from hourly observations…
