Question by Joe in texas: Liberals: Are we all clear now – there is no global warming crisis?
Or are you going to hold on to this mistaken belief.

The academic at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, whose raw data is crucial to the theory of climate change, has admitted that he has trouble ‘keeping track’ of the information

Professor Phil Jones his record keeping is ‘not as good as it should be’.
The data is crucial to the famous ‘hockey stick graph’ used by climate change advocates to support the theory.

Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.
And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.

Gerti: what climate has to do with Liberalsism? It’s one more excuse to stick it to the capitalists and their evil carbon spewing factories.

Who is going to get hit with a Carbon tax? Green peace?
This is not US data. This Professor is English and his data was used by the United Nations IPCC.

15 years? That guy is a quack. The earth is far too old to use the last 15 years as a timeline for measure. Not even Gore understood that.

Btw, to make an adequate argument, you need to provide the most up-to-date, esteemed data on both sides of the table. As you’ve failed to do so, you haven’t proven your point. You do what creationists do, where they take one unfounded argument and use that as all-encompassing fact.

Question by : Is there a “Temperaturegate” brewing in the U.S.?
Is it time for all of us….. Warmers and Skeptics….to demand that Congress conduct an investigation??

A Pending American Temperaturegate
By Edward R. Long

“We have been repeatedly told (perhaps “lectured” is a better word) the past twenty years that global warming is occurring. With Climategate and subsequent confessions and bailouts by scientists at the CRU, Penn State, Arizona State, IPCC, et al., we are learning that little to none of the factual content in their “peer reviewed” articles is true. The Medieval Warming Period did occur, and it was warmer than currently; the oceans are not going to flood the plains; and the Arctic Ocean may not be turning into a summer water park.

Of course, the mainstream media, especially in the United States, has reported little of this news, and President Obama appears not to be well-informed. But now the global warming story grows more interesting because here in America, we may have our own little “gate.” I will call it ATG, for “American Temperaturegate.”

“NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) informs us, based on their “Adjusted Data” for the period from the last decade of the 19th century to 2006, that the temperature for the contiguous U.S. has increased at a rate of 0.69oC/century. NCDC arrives at this conclusion by massaging raw data from a set of meteorological stations located in the contiguous U.S. which they selected on the basis of a 2.5-degree latitude- and 3.5-degree-longitude grid……

The most-asked question, most recently by D’Aleo and Watts, is whether the NCDC’s reported increase is correct. Perhaps the value is due to a dominant use (over-selection) of stations in urban locations or because of other issues, such as leaving out stations at higher altitudes for the more recent history and retaining them for the more distant past.”

EPA Claims they have the real data, and do not need ……. IPCC data
Russ Steele

“In answering Senator Jim Inhofe question about the use of the IPCC reports, the”gold standard for climate change legislation” the EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson said the EPA has US data that supports global warming, so there was no need for the IPCC data. Really?

According to NOAA/NCDC the US is warming at 0.69oC/century, based on their adjusted temperatures.

However, they will not reveal the computer code and the decision process they use to make those adjustments, so we can not determine what fudge factors the NCDC might be using.”

No. The deniers have been questioning the surface temperature record since, like, forever. Any claims of a “Temperature-gate” are baseless.

Global warming is now unequivocal. Temperatures as reconstructed from satellites data is in high agreement with temperatures collected from the surface[1]. There are also numerous natural signs that the world is warming, such as (A) melting glaciers; (B) an increasingly rapid rate of sea level rise; (C) a dramatic reduction in Arctic ice cover in recent years, which includes the summer minimum, winter maximum, thickness and the fact the older ice has been replaced by newer “rotten” ice; (D) Spring is arriving earlier; (E) a poleward migration of some plant and animal species, (F) etc…

Question by Richie: Why another U-turn as scientist at centre of row finally admits there has been no global warming since 1995?
How can any alarmist ever believe in this junk when this top guy from the IPCC admits that:

* Data for vital ‘hockey stick graph’ has gone missing
* There has been no global warming since 1995
* Warming periods have happened before – but NOT due to man-made changes

The academic at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, whose raw data is crucial to the theory of climate change, has admitted that he has trouble ‘keeping track’ of the information.

Colleagues say that the reason Professor Phil Jones has refused Freedom of Information requests is that he may have actually lost the relevant papers.

Professor Jones told the BBC yesterday there was truth in the observations of colleagues that he lacked organisational skills, that his office was swamped with piles of paper and that his record keeping is ‘not as good as it should be’.

The data is crucial to the famous ‘hockey stick graph’ used by climate change advocates to support the theory.

Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.

And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.

Phil Jones never said that “there has been no global warming since 1995″. And here is the transcript to the actual interview from which the Daily Mail took a quote out of context and spun it: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/8511670.stm

What he actually says was that the climate has been warming an average of 0.12°C per decade over the past 15 years.

Such warming is exceptional and falls within the 93 percentile. However, in statistics, it’s the 95 percentile that is “significant.” Therefore, according to Phil Jones, from 1995 to the present, there has been no “statistically significant” global warming.

Jones also stated, “Achieving statistical significance in scientific terms is much more likely for longer periods, and much less likely for shorter periods.”

“Significant” and “statistically significant” are two different things. Phil Jones should have been more careful explaining this and should have assumed that (A) most people don’t understand statistics; and (B) the denial machine would try to spin what he said and present a misunderstanding to those who don’t really understand science or math.
