Nothing to see here move along,..
The link is from our own Gov,. not Gore
In case you are untrusting of governments here is Wikileaks temp data
In all cases the data is alarming at best,.. Worst case mankind is as dumb as we all fear.
So 100 years or so of data in a 4 BILLION year old system. Yawn.
If it's hot, it's proof of Global Warming.
If it's cold, it's proof of Global Warming.
It we have average temeratures, it's proof of Global Warming.
If we have severe weather events, it's proof of Global Warming.
If we don't have severe weather events, that's also proof of Global Warming.
"So 100 years or so of data in a 4 BILLION year old system."
It's not even 100 years, as the ability to measure global temperatures accurately 100 years ago is rather suspect.
This stuff ebbs and flows by millenia, you and your Homey Al Gore need to get over yourselves.
Unfortunately (for the algore), we then went a record THIRTEEN YEARS before we once again experienced a killer hurricane.
I think we've all noticed how he keeps registering under yet another false name, solely so he can use the false registration to tell himself how smart he is.
He has to do that, of course, because no one else here will agree with him other than our resident pothead.
SHhhhhhhhhh....he may not realize he is the only one agreeing with him!
Sadly, that might well be the case.
Brought to you by the same folks drilling ice cores and calling the layers "years" when they were actually separate "storms"
That and simple things like taking the temp readings close to the exhaust ports on the ship might skew readings a bit. If not we just cherry pick data that we don't like to arrive at re-conceived results.
Miss use of science by politicians and techs who shouldn't even have a job cause they don't know how to collect proper data.

Ocean temperatures have risen only 0.1 degree Celsius over the last five decades, according to a landmark study some scientists argue could change the way researchers measure the ocean's temperature levels.
Each layer of water in the ocean has vastly different temperatures, so determining the average temperature is nearly impossible without glossing over important data. Researchers at the University of California, San Diego decided on a different model – they measured the ratio of noble gases in the atmosphere, which are in direct relation to the ocean's temperature.
Geoscientist Jeff Severinghaus, an academic at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, measured values of the noble gases argon, krypton, and xenon in air bubbles captured inside ice cores in Antarctica. Krypton and xenon are released into the atmosphere in known quantities as the ocean warms, according to the study, which was published Thursday in Nature Journal
"This method is a radically new way to measure change in total ocean heat," Severinghaus said in a post on the Scripps website. "It takes advantage of the fact that the atmosphere is well-mixed, so a single measurement anywhere in the world can give you the answer."
Severinghaus measured values of the noble gases argon, krypton, and xenon in air bubbles captured inside ice cores in Antarctica. Krypton and xenon, which are remarkably stable regardless external factors, are released into the atmosphere in known quantities as the ocean warms.
Assuming that they're right that the concentration of these trace gasses is directly proportional to atmospheric heat, this seems to be, for once, an actually accurate method of discovering historical global climate changes.
And, 'Waterworld' is fictional too...
I've got a t-shirt with that same logo!
"...climate science is not an exact science. Or even just a science.
It's new age Gaiaism with some graphs..."
Thanks for spoiling my fun and posting before my Critical Pontificating Groupie could get at me....:)
"that is not to say that men serve no roll here on Earth..."
"conceived without the taint of man.." lol. Kudos to the writer and dead pan narrator.
