Video: The Impact of Manmade Global Warming on a Blizzard Called Nemo and on Hurricane Sandy

The following video is an examination and discussion of the sea surface temperature data associated with the recent blizzard called Nemo, and with hurricane Sandy. There’s nothing unusual about those temperatures, and there’s no evidence of manmade global warming in that data. There is also a very brief discussion at the end of the video about the natural warming of satellite-era sea surface temperatures.


These blog posts were referred to in the video.

Hmm.  “Poised” seemed to be the operative word that day.
