Global Surface Temperature Rise from 1880 till Now (6 pics + 1 video)

Posted in Lifestyle » Science   17 Sep 2012   / 7393 views

NASA scientists made a curious analysis of how surface temperatures were fluctuating compared to the average temperature data from the middle of the 20th century.


The reds indicate the areas with a temperature higher than the average temperature of the baseline period spanning the years 1951—1980.

How convenient... They skipped the 1930s. Temps rose from the 1880s (which is called the Little Ice-Age it was so cold) until the 1930s. Then they fell until the 1970s.

Not very observant are you? It's clearly in the video.

Since the Sun has increased in activity for the last 300 years it is not a huge surprise that the planet has warmed a bit eh?

Warmer is better too, having a new grand minimum in solar activity would kill millions in 2 years.

from blue (coldest) to red(hottest) 4 degrees. You would say is nothing, but globally it is maing a difference.

So a few million year old plant and we have 132 years of data. Yep we know everything there is to know and we are at fault. Doohh

Looks like the temperature has been rising since 1888, so there's nothing we can do.

NOAA keeps changing the historical temperature data colder every time they make a "fix". Most temp sensors are located in places where urbanisation has taken place in the last 50 years. What was surrounded by grass and forest is now surronded in pavement and AC machines. Urban heat is a real problem for decadal temp trends. Only problem is 66% of station data adjustments (after measurement) are done upwards for current records, this is fact.

Whole global warming is based on the realisation:
1.western economies cannot keep up the standard of living when china and india get up to speed
2.people will be happier about taxing them to stone age (remedy of point 1) if they think they are saving the planet while paying

Add Al Gore and some doctored data, call it a non debatable piece of science (it is isn't it..) and brand all non-compliant ppl anti environment and/or idiots. The sheeple will pay and be happy.

And some global warming believer has come along and punished everyone with a -1. LOL.

Sigh, So many things wrong with this chart. First off, even the most hysterical global warming alarmist will claim the overall planet warmed about 3 degrees Fahrenheit over that time period, and the pictures make it look like the temperature doubled.

Second, for about 100 of those years there was ONE temperature station in the southern hemisphere and only a dozen or so at the present time; nobody has a clue what is really going on in the south and this claims to give absolute data.

Third, for over a decade there's been no warming, instead cooling in many areas. Even alarmists are wondering where the warming went that they hysterically predicted in the 90s.

Most weather stations in the northern hemisphere are actually in cities and over half are poorly placed: near heat sources such as parking lots, exhaust from AC units, and so on. Instead of compensating for that, the alarmist adjusts non-urban stations HIGHER to match the urban ones.

And finally, as people have noted here not only were the 30s skipped (which were warmer than the 90s), the planet goes through warming and cooling phases normally and naturally. We can't stop it, cause it, or make a difference. We can just adapt to it.

If you stress over something like Global Warming, I wonder what you do over the things worth stressing about, like economic crisis'.

Hopefully, this planet jumps a good 20 degrees across the board and humanity dies off. Then the planet can hang out for a while in peace and start over again with less religion.

I know it's gotten hotter in the past 10 years because my balls hang lower than they used too...

what's even worse than global climate change? a race of creatures with brains to understand who refuse to take responsibility for their actions right down to the bitter end.

in a couple more years, when weather-related problems and disasters are running even more frequently than they are now, you can bet your bottom dollar that the excuses for non-action and the finger of blame will continue pointing everywhere but in the right direction.

meanwhile, people will be clamoring for science to bail them out of this enormous jam after having done everything in their power to ignore what the body of science has been warning about for the past few decades. you can be very sure of that, as well.

gotta love the irony... assuming you're a lover of irony.

I see that nobody really believe in this crap anymore. I`m living for last 20 years in the central europe, and seriously? In my opinion the temperatures are much lower, the summer is colder and there are a lot of rain, same thing in the winter. And even if it`s really gettin warmer - I`m lovin it :D Did you know that the magnetic storms on the sun are getting more and more intense?

BE AFRAID.... BE VERY AFRAID!!! Then feel like an idiot in 25 years when it's finally exposed as fanatical bullshit.... you know who I'm talkin to.... I knew you'd have a soap box in this one g.
