A few years ago, Mikey told us that he doesn’t trust tree rings after 1960. Now he says he doesn’t trust satellites either.
Some non-scientists who deny man-made global warming have pointed to satellite temperature records — which only go back to 1979 — which show a warming world, but no record this year and less of a recent increase than the longer-term ground thermometers. But Mann, Dessler, Francis and others say there have been quality and trustworthy issues with some satellite measurements and they only show what’s happening far above the ground. They said ground measurements are also more important because it is where we live.
The only thing Mikey trusts is data which has been massively tampered with by his Real Climate buddies. The surface data is so reliable, that they had to do this :
The whole idea of global warming is that CO2 warms the troposphere. But the troposphere isn’t warming, so the experts ignore it.
