A factual update on global warming

Graph 2

What do you get when you apply a 13 year smoothing function to the yearly data on global temperature? The graph above. According to ‘climate optimists’ the graph above is misleading, as, for one thing, these surface data are supposed to show a different pattern of development than the ‘satellite data’. The point: they don’t. The graph above shows about 0,7 to 0,8 degrees warming after 1979 and a pattern of relentless increase. The ‘satellite  data’ (graph below) show 0,5 degrees warming after 1979 and a pattern of relentless increase (visualize a 12*13 = 156 months running average, couldn’t track the original data). Yes, that’s a difference. But even the 0,5 degrees is, considering the warming which took place  before 1979, quite a problem. And more so when we consider the 2,0 degrees of ‘acceptable’ warming. Even based upon this rather short period and these conservative data, while not taking 1880-1980 developments into account we’ve already spent *at least* 25% of our wiggle room. The graph below is used by climate optimists to defend their position… Delusional. It’s maybe less alarming than the graph above. But it is alarming, too.

    What needs to be considered is if there is a tipping point such as the release of methane from Siberia and whether the situation is reversible. Large areas of the planet could become uninhabitable and the current level of migration to Europe and the States would in comparison to what may pass be seen as a trickle. However aren’t we lucky that the most powerful man on Earth thinks that climate change is a hoax invented by the Chinese!

    The greatest challenge mankind has yet to face… and wrought by our own hand, no less.
