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.

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. The error bars are about twice as big for seasonal means and three times as big for monthly means.

NASSA data on error bars is not on topic? Do you care to discuss the error bars admitted on the NASSA website?

Ohwiseone

But you don't talk about the topic , All you do is deny research and facts ! Just like a fly !

Still no comment on the NASSA data on error bars? Just more flaccid attempts to insult and deflect? Ok perhaps it's a bit over your head, Have a great day

325 pages and when the tiredbrain troll was expelled this last time we lost about 200 pages of it denying all research and findings just to keep with the official republinut talking line !Facts are , We have a problem and no amount of ignorant inaction will solve it ! So lets see how many more pages of bullsh^t we can get generated here !
