    but, but…from 1960-2010 warming is out of control.. Damn it, the world is dying Steve!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  2. MikeTheDenier says:

    Is the US NSIDC cooking the ice books? Sure looks that way if one is looking at all sites.

    What caused the cold period between in 1960 and 1980? Certainly CO2 in the atmosphere was not going down. Much of the so-called warming appears to be a rebound from an unusually cold 20 year period to what was normal prior to 1960.

    Correction, Kentucky is COOLING at 0.0 C / century.

    Perspective (and base line period) is important. 😉

    Andy,

    The earth doesn’t have a natural “equilibrium state” so fluctuations don’t really “rebound” so to speak.

    • Mike Davis says:

      Clear science:
      You got that one! The earth has long term natural variable regional weather patterns that are evident throughout the history of the earth. There are those that want to “Pick” a small portion of the long term variations to prove a catastrophic event might be occurring. The normal state of global climate is regional fluctuations with patterns overlaying patterns over longer and longer time periods. There are obvious changes in the long term patterns such as the start of glaciation when Antarctica took residence over the South Pole or the recent change when the Isthmus of Panama closed the Equatorial waterway between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

  6. Denis Ables says:

    So, if the globe has been warming (and I have not doubted that fact), for the past 150 years, (up until around 1995 anyway), how can Kentucky be ignoring that trend?

    Did the usual suspects make a mistake (in the “wrong” direction) whilst homogenizing the data? Or is it just because the actual warming over the past 150 years has been so slight that it has escaped notice?

    I lived in White Wood, Kentucky for a summer hayin’. It is located half way between Black Gnat and Roachville. Black Gnat is close to Campbellsville. It was hot in the hay fields.

    I live in Ky and I think I see RFK Jr and James Hansen coming this way to blame our coal, gas and oil industries. Those two really hate coal. If they have their way, this will soon become the Kentucky National Forest State.

    • Mike Davis says:

      I live 15 miles south of Cumberland Gap an visit Kentucky often. I just find a tree to lay under during the warmest part of the day!

  9. Phil Jones said (in a CRU email): “Even with the instrumental record, the early and late 20th century warming periods are only significant locally at between 10-20% of grid boxes” (referring to the 5×5 degree grids).

  10. Andy Weiss says:

    My point is that we naturally have cool periods and warm periods. The fact that we have been recently in a warm period does not mean we are experiencing global warming any more than the 1960-1980 cool period meant that we were going into an Ice Age.

  11. Andy Weiss says:

    Is CS a real scientist? If so, I apologize for being so rough with him!
