‘Hottest year’ claims exposed: ‘The differences in temperature that they rely on for a judgment that something was warmest are in hundredths of a degree!’ – A fancy way of spinning temp standstill
'They treat unbelievably tiny differences in temperature that exist only as a statistical artifact as if they told us something! For instance they contrast the 2013 anomaly of .62C with 2010, which is .66C. The difference is only 4 hundredths of one degree Celsius!' -- 'NOAA also has 2013 as the 4th warmest year, at 0.62 deg C above the global 20th century average of 13.9 deg C. Note that only 0.09 deg C [nine hundredths of one degree] separates their top ten warmest years.' - 'Is there any point at which they would concede that a difference is too small to be taken seriously? Thousandths of one degree? Millionths of one degree? Medieval theologians used to debate how many angels could dance on the head of a pin. Theology is alive and well among Warmists!'
Flashback: 2010 tied for ‘hottest’ year?! Relax, it is ‘purely a political statement’ — Even NASA’s Hansen admits it is ‘not particularly important’ — Prof. mocks ‘hottest decade’ claim as ‘a joke’ -- 'Claims based on year-to-year temperature data that differs by only a few HUNDREDTHS of a degree'
he differences in temperature that they rely on for a judgment that something was warmest are in hundredths of a degree!
