The Divergence between Surface and Lower Troposphere Global Temperature Datasets and its Implications

I include a graph in my monthly global surface temperature and lower troposphere temperature anomaly updates that compares the average of the global surface land+ocean temperature anomaly products (from GISS, NCEI and UKMO) to the average of the global lower … Continue reading

February 2016 Global Surface Temperature Anomalies May or May Not Have Been Highest on Record, According to the UKMO

UPDATE:  I used the phrase “may or may not” with respect to February 2016 being the warmest on record in the title and text of this post.  Nick Stokes on the thread of the cross post at WUWT advises that … Continue reading

More Alarmist Nonsense with the Release of the Redundant* NOAA Global Temperature Data for February 2016

*Or Maybe the GISS Land-Ocean Temperature Index is Redundant. In the post Alarmism Cranked Up to Absurd Level, we discussed the misleading media reports about the temporary February 2016 El Niño-related uptick in monthly global surface temperature data from the Goddard … Continue reading

February 2016 Global Surface (Land+Ocean) and Lower Troposphere Temperature Anomaly Update

UPDATE (April 15, 2016): I discovered an error in the model-data comparison and model-data difference graphs (Figures 10 and 11) that impacted only the January 2016 values. The error has been corrected. # # # We recently discussed the February … Continue reading
