Scientific Consensus That 2014 Was Record Hottest Year? NO

 

2014 Temps Global

 

 

 

” So the results are in. The main US global-temperature scorekeepers – NASA and the NOAA – say that last year was definitely the hottest year on record. But they’ve been contradicted by a highly authoritative scientific team, one actually set up to try an establish objective facts in this area.

  On the face of it, there’s no dispute. The NASA and NOAA (National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration) statement says:

  The year 2014 ranks as Earth’s warmest since 1880, according to two separate analyses by NASA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientists.

 Open and shut, right?

  But in fact, detecting a global average temperature rise – of less than a degree since the 1880s, as all sides agree – among thousands upon thousands of thermometer readings from all over the world and spanning more than a century is no simple matter. The temperature at any given location is surging up and down by many degrees each day and even more wildly across a year. It can be done, across a timescale of decades, but trying to say that one year is hotter or colder than the next is to push the limits of statistics and the available data. This sort of thing is why the battle over global temperatures tends to be so hotly debated.

  A few years ago, a new dataset was established called the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature project. It was intended to address various issues raised by climate skeptics: but in fact it has plumped down firmly on the warmist side of the debate, saying that in fact there are no undue biases in the temperature records, changes in the Sun do not have any major climate effects, and so on.

  Now, however, the BEST boffins have broken ranks with the NASA/NOAA/UK Met Office climate establishment and bluntly contradicted the idea that one can simply say “2014 was the hottest year on record”. According to BEST’s analysis (pdf):

  Our best estimate for the global temperature of 2014 puts it slightly above (by 0.01 C) that of the next warmest year (2010) but by much less than the margin of uncertainty (0.05 C). Therefore it is impossible to conclude from our analysis which of 2014, 2010, or 2005 was actually the warmest year.

  That may seem like not such a big deal, but it is really. At the moment the big debate in this area is about the “hiatus” – has global warming been stalled for the last fifteen-years-plus, or not? “

3 Reasons President Obama Is Wrong About Stay-At-Home Mothers

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Charlie Spiering reports on a speech President Obama made in Rhode Island today. You know things are rough for President Obama this election season when he is relegated to a state so small CNN thinks it’s a city.

  Anyway, he was painting a picture of how he’d like to expand the administrative state to include government pre-school. Because public schools are doing such a good job generally. Anyway, he then took an absolutely bizarre swipe against stay-at-home mothers:

“ Sometimes, someone, usually Mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result,” he said. “That’s not a choice we want Americans to make.”

  Here are three problems with his argument. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

White House Rushes To Defend ‘One Of The Leading Statesmen Of Our Time’

 

 

 

 

  (Robert) “Gates’ book, “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War,” has sent a political shock wave through Washington, with its scathing critiques of Team Obama. Gates left little to the imagination in questioning Obama’s leadership style and commitment to the Afghanistan war. But he was particularly brutal in his assessment of Biden.

  Gates called Biden a  man of “integrity” but also accused him of “poisoning the well” for military leadership.

“I think he has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”

 

 

    Just in case you’ve forgotten how brilliant a statesman “Crazy Uncle Joe” is , we’ve included a “best of” video at the top of the page . If the administration’s defense of Biden’s “statesmanship” demonstrates one thing it is living proof of the complete lack of judgement that inhabits 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Kirsten Powers: Yes, the media’s reaction to Romney’s Egypt statement yesterday was utterly insane

  “Via Mediaite, consider this a video complement to Erick Erickson’s piece at Red State this morning about yesterday’s virtuoso exercise in narrative-driven concern-trolling. If you only know KP from her Fox appearances, this clip will come as a surprise, as she’s as unsparing of O’s failures here as any pundit on the other side of the aisle would be. If you follow her Twitter feed, it’ll come as no surprise at all. She’s been lighting into the White House and the embassy for the past 36 hours, and in fact has lit into them frequently in the past on the topic of Egypt. She’s tweeted before too about having friends in the Copt community there, so this is no academic exercise in punditry. The stronger the Brotherhood gets, the more dangerous the situation becomes for the Copts and for the United States. Go figure that she’s more worried about the president’s reaction than Mitt Romney’s.”

  Why Frum is wrong

” Frum then proceeded to argue that, to rescue the right, conservatives were going to have to
become more like Democrats, as Frum himself had done. This is not his exact phrasing. But Frum’s tack amounted to: sell off your principles, piece by piece, until you look enough like your opposition to capture some of their sheep. It was clear that Frum was not only
committed to a kind of demographic determinism, but to the empty tribalism of party. “

Get out your crying towels and hip boots … oh and have a shovel ready . The s..t flows deep on this video .

Be sure and note Ed say the results are very ” disappointing ” . Some impartiality on display there .
