Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

Q. How accurate are the GISS results (tables, graphs)? A. The GISS results are really estimates based on the available data. Accurate error estimates are hard to obtain. However, it is likely that the largest contribution to the margin of error is given by the temporal and spatial data gaps. That particular margin was estimated as follows: All computations were first made replacing the observed data by complete model data. Then the calculations were repeated after discarding model data where the corresponding observations were missing. Comparisons of the two results were used to obtain an estimate for that margin of error. Assuming that the other inaccuracies might about double that estimate yielded the error bars for global annual means drawn in this graph, i.e., for recent years the error bar for global annual means is about ±0.05°C, for years around 1900 it is about ±0.1°C.

You simply move on to another piece of propaganda and forget your earlier posts lololol

And what of 2014 being the warmest year?

Nice to finally show you for what you are, pay close attention when the Local republican HARRY avoids the data and prefers to post leftist propaganda

Go to the ocean heat charts I posted, and click on "show error bars."

Those terrestrial temps have a margin of error no?

Stillhere

But admitted margin of error is greater than the supposed rise in temps, do you deny this?? LOL

what a fraud you are, how about the margin of error HARRY???

I'm encouraged that the oceans are storing the excess heat energy. It gives us time to figure out how to use it. It shouldn't be too difficult to draw heat from the ocean.

Like Rex Tillerson, head of Exxon-Mobile, has said, "(Global warming) is an engineering problem with an engineering solution.” He called it “manageable.”

In the last few days, we’ve only been discussing atmospheric temperatures. That’s ridiculous, since the “globe” in global warming includes much more than the atmosphere. The ocean alone has 264 times the mass of the atmosphere, and therefore can store much more heat. In fact, Scientific American reports:

“Scientists estimate that every square meter of the planet has received between 0.5 to 1 watt (an average light bulb emits 60 watts of heat) of excess energy in the last few decades. And more than 90 percent of that energy has entered the oceans and warmed them.”

And NOAA just updated their global ocean heat content charts. They show the ocean heating up steadily.

Harry? NASSA data and accuracy??? Any interest? Or do we just post propoganda headlines these days?

For a person that claims to be "about the science" I find it odd that HARRY won't defend the report he posted!

Still don't want to discuss margins of error and NASSA/NOAA data?

Harry likes to point out when one misspells a word etc, clearly demonstrating his superiority.

"i don't believe there is a time or frequency at which one must be limited too in their personal 'evolving'." (sic)

Nor do I. But evolve means "to change gradually." It doesn't mean to evolve and devolve and evolve and devolve ad infinitum.

When a politician reverses course, then reverses course again over the course of multiple tries for the presidency, I think many voters might conclude such politician cares more about getting elected than the issue.

harryanderson....i believe that the liberal left calls flip-flopping on positions "evolving". Mitt is simply "evolving". i don't believe there is a time or frequency at which one must be limited too in their personal "evolving".

perhaps a little less snark this time?

Perhaps you can "school" us once again. lol

Care to discuss the margin of error yet or are you still ducking that one?
