What the journal article doesn’t seem to realize is that the least biased data of all come from satellites, which don’t need any massaging of the data. And the satellites unequivocally show that there’s been no global warming at all for 18 and a half years.
A dozen climate scientists not involved in the study were interviewed by the site Mashable and nearly all of them agreed “the study does not support the authors’ conclusion that the so-called warming pause never happened.”
“Instead, they said it simply proves that changing the start and end dates used for analyzing temperature trends has a big influence on those measurements, a fact that was already widely known,” Mashable reported.
You can’t simply ignore the satellite data and call it a day. As the Cato Institute commented,
Getting the vertical distribution of temperature wrong [coming from satellite data] invalidates virtually every forecast of sensible weather made by a climate model, as much of that weather (including rainfall) is determined in large part by the vertical structure of the atmosphere.”
So if you can’t really predict any weather trends without satellites, and the satellites show no global warming, can you really predict Al Gore’s planetary apocalypse?
Science Journal Massages Data to Show no ‘Pause’ in Global Warming

This week, the journal Science, publishing a paper by US government scientists, reported that there has been no global warming “pause” over the last 18 years, and the 2013 UN/IPCC report claiming the presence of such an ongoing pause is wrong. But it’s more that Science journal is wrong.
