No Hiatus in Global Warming – new NOAA report

NOAA Research Presents Evidence Against a Global Warming ‘Hiatus’

For years, scientists have been laboring to explain an apparent slowdown in global warming since the start of this century, which occurred at the same time that heat-trapping emissions of carbon dioxide were soaring. The slowdown, sometimes inaccurately described as a halt or hiatus, became a major talking point for people critical of climate science.

Now, new research suggests the whole thing may have been based on incorrect data.

One Response to No Hiatus in Global Warming – new NOAA report

  1. Actually, the critics have been pretty hard on this study already. Methodology looks rather poor. Everyone else sees a drastic slowdown of warming in temperature data – these folks try to correct sea surface temperature data by using bucket data from ships. NOAA/NWS routinely has corrected older data (e.g., “official” corrected data from ’30’s is somewhat cooler than actual data originally recorded – somewhat controversial, but reasonably justified on basis that data collected by older methods needs to be made consistent with data taken with newer methods). What these folks have done is exactly the opposite – corrected more recent data so it is consistent with older methods. Those interested might want to look at Climate Etc for scientific criticisms. Unlikely to be accepted by scientific community. Contradicts both British Met Office and Berkeley group data sets which vie for “Gold Standard.”

    However, nice “political science” for EPA and Pres.
