... and other non-definitionsIs there any difference between this ...
... and this?
How about this?
I’m pleased to see dbstealey’s graph of Global Warming. I presume it’s in degrees Fahrenheit? Did you graph it yourself?
I’d be grateful to see one prepared in Kelvin, and preferably with a link to the web page GISS has their data on, not merely to GISS said it, user can hunt through everything GISS ever said in order for user to find out where they said it.
If anyone can create such a graph I’d appreciate it.
PRELIMINARY INFORMATIONSo far, so legit. But I'm getting ahead of myself here, because the only chart that matters here is the first one in the deck, which actually makes its appearance before the PRELIMINARY INFORMATION section:
The sea surface temperature dataset being used in this post is NOAA’s Optimum Interpolation (OI) Sea Surface Temperature (SST) v2 (aka Reynolds OI.v2). We’re using it because (1) it is the longest running satellite-enhanced sea surface temperature dataset available, (2) its satellite data are bias adjusted based on temperature measurements from ship inlets and from buoys (both moored and drifting), and (3), most importantly, NOAA’s Reynolds OI.v2 data have been called “a good estimate of the truth”.
At times not so long ago geologically, temperatures changed by TENS of degrees, within only a decade or two! If that happened now it would be catastrophic.... wherein he kindly provided this graphic as supporting evidence:
