This is based on the data from the satellite microwave sounding unit (MSU), as analyzed by the good folks at the University of Alabama at Huntsville. Here are the results, divided into tropical, extratropical, and polar.…

New study claims low solar activity caused "the pause" in global temperature – but AGW will return!

I found this study’s conclusion a bit amusing, because there are numerous claims that solar activity (and the slight increase in TSI seen in the last 30…

A Big Picture Look At “Earth’s Temperature” – "The Pause" Update
