Dr. Christy: 'When you look at the United States record of extreme high temperatures you do not see an upward trend at all. In fact, it's slightly downward. That does fly in the face of climate model projections.'
Via RealClimateScience.com: 'Smoking gun showing that claims the 1990 IPCC MWP graph was derived from CET only - are bogus. It came from Hansen 1981, and used multiple global proxies.'
The UN IPCC graph was derived from James Hansen’s 1981 study, which was taken from temperatures in England, California and Greenland.
'Only a small region near the North Pole saw a burst of warm southern air – lasting a few hours.'
'The temperature in the Arctic above 80°N was estimated to have risen only some 13°K during the event, and not 30°K as the WAPO tried having its readers think.'
'Since 1958 we see that a temperature spike of some 12°K or more in a matter of a few days during the November – March deep winter period occurred more than 70 times!'
Also taking a look at the wild fluctuations seen in 1964, 1984, or 1990 – back when CO2 was at levels near the “safe” 350 ppm – we see they were far more extreme'
