Wow, according to the above graphs the world is warming fast. Especially since the seventies. I’m going to save this page n share it.

dana j craig,
Don’t forget to share the lower troposphere temperature trend page. That one is the global warming key.

I’ve lived in the same area for 50 years. In the sixties we often had to break thick ice so the horses could drink.for three straight years we haven’t had frost, I’m still growing unprotected summer vegetables. Weather is always warm now, unlike some people I refuse to bury my head in the sand.

I am fascinated. Looking at just the peaks and 1998 to 2010+ in particular, it would appear that not only does the monthly mean global surface temperature anomaly [NASA/GISS] disagree with UAH lower atmosphere temperature anomalies [UAH], which is surprising but just conceivable, but both of these disagree with the global average land temperature anomaly 1850-2011 [Met Office Hadley Centre], which in turn disagrees with the January December global mean temperature over land and ocean anomaly [NCDC/NESDIS/NOAA].
While it is true that the averages on which the anomalies are based are taken over different periods, this should not affect the peaks. What am I missing?

In all fairness. I am doing my best to be impartial while examining the climate issue. Your site claims there has been no net warming for the last 16 years. I assume your organization does not deploy satellites or gather temprature data or conduct research. Therefore all of your conclusions must be based on data gathered by ” THEM “. How can you be better at deciphering this mountain of gobblelygook than the eggheads who created it? Don’t take it personal, I irritate the warmists as well. Only the truth matters. Thanks for your time

My hypothesis: if we remove all of the carbon from the earths crust and put it in the atmosphere.. something will be effected. This i believe. In a warmer world water will evaporate faster, the atmosphere holds more water vapor, trapping more heat, ice melts, more heat gets absorbed, and of course more precipitation. Not confusing. I just read that increased precipitation on the Antarctica ice sheet will speed up glacier movement thus dumping more water in the oceans. As a result sea level will rise! What?? Didnt that same water evaporate out of the ocean in the first place? So it seems precipitation in antartica is dangerous! I hope the rain n snow elsewhere remains benign.

About graph, global monthly mean temperature 1996-2012 at http// I did a statistical analysis using several methods. I had a friend do the same. Our results were almost identical. Between 1996 and 2012 .3C increase in temperature was detected. This is consistent with many other reports found in science journals. this graph is found at the watts up site. Yet it clearly supports the warming associated with anthropogenic C02 emissions. I invite any and all who read this to examine this issue with vigor.

“Between 1996 and 2012 .3C increase in temperature was detected. This … clearly supports the warming associated with anthropogenic C02 emissions.”
That is simply an assertion, it is not scientific evidence. You need to understand the difference between scientific evidence and coincidence.
The rise in global temperature you cite is well within the long term parameters of the global warming trend since the LIA. There has been no recent acceleration of the trend. In fact, there has been no global warming for sixteen years despite rising CO2 levels.
The long term trend has been the same, whether CO2 was low or high. Therefore, CO2 is not the driver. If it was, global temperatures would be accelerating. They are not.

dana j craig

Ok i think i see your point. Although warming is happening, there has been no acceleration of this warming for the past 16 years.

According to the graphs on your website and others, the world has warmed. Arctic sea ice behavier infers the same.antartic sea ice has grown modestly while antartic ice sheets have thinned. The sun hasn’t warmed nor has cosmic rays( grasping for straws) done diddly. To be skeptic while increasingly reliable scientific evidence piles higher… Well you know. I really enjoyed my conversations with Dr. Spencer who plays well even when holding lousy cards.

I am commenting on your posts at December 13, 2012 at 8:38 pm and December 16, 2012 at 10:58 am.
There has been no global warming discernible at 95% confidence for 16 years.
For example, see the graph copied from the IPCC AR5 draft which is at
I recognise that reality disagrees with your beliefs and I sympathise with your pain when this is pointed out to you. But there has been no discernible global warming for 16 years and you need to come to terms with it.

K I saw the ” up the down escalatior” I saw the graph that was altered. I had already realized the graphs were suspicious. The same red lines both altered the meaning and commented on the significant alteration. For years your ilk has knowingly delayed, confused and misled the public. Your name may very well go down in history as a result of your fine work. Soon enough( let’s hope) the doubting ( but vocal ) will realize watts up. Your influence and artic sea ice share a common destiny.


Interesting conversation With Dana J Craig there. I knew he was aiming for a bun fight with worlds like you and your “ilk” plus his accusations you’re basically making the data up.
I wonder what his job is, hint, hint. (NCDC 151 Patton Ave. Asheville, NC,).
Also looking at where he lives and that nice fishing pond in the back. I thought maybe looking at January weather to see if his pond actually froze might be of interest for any recent year before he wrote.
What can I say? The guy is a porker.
He hasn’t got so much as a Solar panel on his roof and it’s quite a long walk for a water melon to get to work.
So sad…

Now NOAA claims 19,000 square mile of retracting sea ice is responsible for an Arctic temperature increase of 50°. The Climate fanatics will go crazy with this!
