Hansen Finds The Missing Heat – Which Satellites Can’t Find

Hansen thinks that Europe, South America and the Northwest Territories were hot in January.

Satellites saw the world very differently.

    The bit about the Baltic states is particularly egregious, just as the warmcold waters of Vancouver.

    Have checked for Vilnius. Comparing Wunderground stats for Jan 2011 with Wikipedia’s climate values, it does look like temperatures were sweltering hot indeed last month, and Hansen right.

    Then one realizes the “hotness” means an average max of -2C instead of -3.7C. And one can then only laugh at the absurd use of “anomalies” as if they were always meaningful.

      always………….ever or never………meaningful.

      No, they’ve never held any meaning. I think the absurdity is what made it work. I’m not sure, because I haven’t ever experience “average” or “mean”.

      The absurdity is that some people believe we should. Or/and that people have in the past. The most absurd idea is believing this is a goal to work toward. The end of civilization would be when we all, in all of our experiences……..average out. Living would cease.

    oops…too many links in previous comments. It’s in the moderation queue…

    What does the S in NASA stand for again?

    Does anybody, be it alarmist or sceptic believe Hansen naymore? Surely it’s clear to all and sundry that the man fudges figures to support his activist agenda.

    Tar n feathers for him

    I think the whole reason for following the anomaly is that the raw measurement itself is even less certain. No one can really say what the average earth temp was for a period of a year. But if you used EXACTLY the same method each year, you could ostensibly follow the anomaly to understand trends. But within even the anomaly, I think the margins are actually as large as most or all of any trend.

    James (Death Trains) Hansen sees what he wants to see — nothing more, nothing less.

    I found -.14 C with my JRA-25 reanalysis dataset compared to 1980-2009 climatology.
