Key Analysis: According to the Climatic Research Unit of the UK Met Office, the margin of error in estimating global surface temperature is 0.1ºC. That is five times larger than the increment by which 2014 supposedly surpassed 2010.
In a world where billions of people still live in energy poverty, inter-governmental ‘cooperation’ (collusion) to rig markets against affordable, plentiful, reliable, scalable carbon fuels is unlikely to be sustainable and potentially a humanitarian disaster.
Which is it? Time Mag. goes both ways on volcanoes! Flashback 2014 Time Mag.: 'Volcanoes May Be Slowing Down Climate Change' - 'Research shows that large volcanic eruptions inject sulfur dioxide gas into the stratosphere. The gas forms tiny droplets of sulfuric acid, also known as “volcanic aerosols,” that can block sunlight. That cooling effect has been largely ignored by climate scientists until now, but it seems to partly offset the warming from human-caused changes in greenhouse gases.'
Dr. David Whitehouse: 'Quoting the temperature to one hundredth of a degree and the error on that measurement to a tenth of a degree is not normal scientific practice. It is against normal scientific practice to have an error of the measurement larger than the precision of that measurement.'
Morano, a former U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee staff member, calls the report “shameless activism shown by our federal scientists” and denounced NOAA’s findings as “statistically meaningless.”
“The feds are conning the public on 2014 being the ‘hottest year,’” Morano countered in a statement. “We now know that both NASA and NOAA knew their ‘hottest year’ claims would not hold up to scientific scrutiny. But both agencies chose instead to loudly push the global warming narrative to a willing and compliant news media.”
