Reposted from Dr. Roy Spencer’s Blog April 23rd, 2019 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. This post has two related parts.

Update: The Global Warming Challenge

Reposted from theclimatebet.com 2018 year ends on a low note, temperature wise The UAH global mean temperature anomaly data for December 2018 is out: the figure of 0.25°C. The average for the year was 0.23°C, with a maximum anomaly of 0.32°C and a minimum of 0.15°C. None of those figure is much different from the…

One-third of Man’s entire influence on climate since the Industrial Revolution…

UAH, MSU, TLT, and other Acronyms

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach The satellite-based atmospheric temperature dataset is one of the better datasets in climate science. Drs. Roy Spencer and John Christy have long been scientific heroes of mine because of the quality of their work in the creation, analysis, corrections, and curation of the dataset.  It is kept at the University…

GISS is Unique (Now Includes May Data)

Guest Essay By Werner Brozek, Edited by Just The Facts In comparing GISS with the other five data sets that I comment on, some of the points I raise below overlap, and others could be added. However, and in no particular order, the following are some things that I have come up with on why…
