Australia Surface Temperatures Compared to UAH Satellite Data Over the Last 40 Years

Reposted from Dr. Roy Spencer’s Blog April 3rd, 2019 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. Summary: The monthly anomalies in Australia-average surface versus satellite deep-layer lower-tropospheric temperatures correlate at 0.70 (with a 0.57 deg. C standard deviation of their difference), increasing to 0.80 correlation (with a 0.48 deg. C standard deviation of their difference) after…

Evidence that humans are responsible for global warming hits ‘gold standard’ certainty level

An article from Apple news notes: OSLO – Evidence for man-made global warming has reached a “gold standard” level of certainty, adding pressure for cuts in greenhouse gases to limit rising temperatures, scientists said on Monday. “Humanity cannot afford to ignore such clear signals,” the U.S.-led team wrote in the journal Nature Climate Change of…

January 2016 Global Surface (Land+Ocean) and Lower Troposphere Temperature Anomaly Update

Guest Post by Bob Tisdale UPDATE: All graphs with UAH lower troposphere temperature data have been updated from beta version 6.4 to 6.5. Thanks, Nick Stokes. This means Figure 4 and Figures 6 through 9 have been revised. # # # The GISS Land-Ocean Temperature Index jumped upwards more than 0.2 deg C from September…

May 2015 Global Surface (Land+Ocean) and Lower Troposphere Temperature Anomaly & Model-Data Difference Update

Guest Post by Bob Tisdale This post provides an update of the data for the three primary suppliers of global land+ocean surface temperature data—GISS through May 2015 and HADCRUT4 and NCEI (formerly NCDC) through April 2015—and of the two suppliers of satellite-based lower troposphere temperature data (RSS and UAH) through May 2015. INITIAL NOTES: I’m…
