NASA’s 1/100° Increase In Temperature ‘2014 Hottest Year Claim’ Deceitful
NASA’s 2014 temperature “hottest year” figures are deceitful (as a lot of the figures released by the Global Warmists are). Any temperature claim of hottest year based on surface data is based on hundredths of a degree hotter than previous hottest years. This immeasurable difference is not even within the margin of error of temperature gauges. The claim of the hottest year is simply a political statement not based on temperature facts. NASA’s “hottest year claims” are based on minute fractions of a degree while ignoring satellite data showing Earth is continuing the 18 plus year halt of Global Warming.
Climatologist Dr. Pat Michaels has debunked the 2014 hottest year claim:
Fact 58.46° is indistinguishable from 58.45°
Moreover 2014 was not the hottest year in the geological history of earth. Climate was hotter 7,000 years ago, hotter 120,000 years ago, and hotter for most of the history of life on Earth and life thrived. NASA’s 1/100° temp increase for 2014 is meaningless in the grand scheme of earth’s geologic temperature record.
— It doesn’t mean CO2 caused the 2014 1/100 Degree Increase in Temperature
— It doesn’t mean warming is bad.
—- It doesn’t mean it will continue to warm.
—- And it doesn’t mean we understand what drives the climate.
What it does mean is there is NO justification for:
— Whacking poor with skyrocketing fuel prices,
— Destroying the U.S. Fossil Fuel Industry and
— Killing millions of jobs in a delusional mission to stop natural climate change. http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs11434-014-0317-3#page-1
