You’re Unbelievable

Loads of climate change tin foil hat wearing morons got a little sexually aroused when they saw the following article.

Global warming stopped 16 years ago, reveals Met Office report quietly released… and here is the chart to prove it

  • The figures reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012 there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures
  • This means that the ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996

The article came with a nice graph too

As an aside, some climate change deniers have mocked extensively the data that for the last 330 months in a row, global temperatures have been above 20th century averages. In a row.

Think about this. You have one of three outcomes. Temperatures are below average. Temperatures are at average. Temperatures are at above average. And for 330 months in a row, they have all been above average. Let’s put this in terms fair dinkum aussies can understand! Gambling analogy!

We do love a bit of two up right? Well if you like, temperatures above average is like throwing two heads. Temperatures at average is like throwing a head and tail. And temperatures below average is like throwing two tails. The planet has just tossed two heads 330 throws in a row.

Bullshit say the tin foil hat brigade! Why the MET just said that there has been no globally warming since 1997. Oh dear. Lets take a look at that graph.

The first thing you see is a mark drawn based on the average temp in 1997. It then plots some temperatures below that 1997 mark and some above. But if you have a really close look, all the data plotted are ABOVE the average temp set (14 degrees Celsius is the Zero line at the bottom since 1997 itself was .5 degrees higher then average 14 degree global average). And yes. If you look, from 1997 to 2012, not one monthly reading drops below or is at the average temperature of 14.

Secondly, this graph is only a very small section of a much bigger graph collated over the past 100 years.

Okay as you can see, there has been a VERY significant rise in temperatures with a steep rise from around 1980 on. The article proposed only looks at a very small section of a 100 year graph that no matter how much you zoom in on a single year or a single decade, clearly shows a rise in temperatures. So not happy to look at the WHOLE data, now the climate deniers are focusing only on the sections of data they want.

Speaking of people zooming on data that they want, the Tony Abbott twitter account made a boastful claim

@TONYABBOTTMHR Pleased to see research on the positive impacts of Gardasil being on the PBS; a decision I made as health minister

Really Tony? A decision YOU made? Sure you supported Gardasil. But when it was omitted from the PBS, you actually attacked it. You even made the claim that you wont be rushing out to vaccinate your daughters on an unknown and untried drug. Then John Howard slapped you a new one and took over from your incompetence.

You can find data anywhere to support your argument, just as long as you continue to cut out the bits of reality that spoil your argument. Abbott the champion of cervix cancer control? Oh Tony. You are not only unauthentic and devoid of culture, you are also unbelievable.
