"A Cherry-Picker’s Guide to Temperature Trends"

All Posts No Comments

Assuming his numbers are right, Chip Knappenberger has posted the single best piece summarizing the recent global temperature trends that I have ever read. It really is a tour de force.

Chip takes on both sides, accusing a RealClimate guy and Richard Lindzen of cherry picking to bolster their claims. Here’s Chip’s overall message:

What I can say for certain, is that the recent behavior of global temperatures demonstrates that global warming is occurring at a much slower rate than that projected by the ensemble of climate models, and that global warming is most definitely not accelerating.

If you are at all interested in the climate change debate, you need to read Chip’s post.
