Satellite Temperature Data

January 8, 2009

The latest satellite temperature data are in. I have provided a graphic for the two main data sets by the University of Alabama at Huntsville and that by Remote Sensing Systems. Each plot shows the lower tropospheric temperature for the globe, the tropics and the northern and southern hemispheres. I have included a loess smoothing with three spans to give the reader an idea of trends in the data. The loess should not be regarded as a definitive proof of a trend as more robust statistics should be used to identify any trends. Indeed, Analysis of Variance does indicate that the 2000s are significantly warmer than either the 1980s or 1990s.

Hi. My name is Richard Steckis. I have recently become interested in the debate about Climate Change. I am a sceptic of the whole Anthropogenic Global Warming Argument. Therefore, I have decided to start my own blog.

As part of this blog I am also going to provide resources for people to analyse data themselves or to access alternative data and views on the issue.

So, please come back and visit often. I hope that this develops into a valuable resource for both sides of the divide.
