global skepticism … NASA Global Warming Facts: 2009 – Second Warmest Year on Record; End of Warmest Decade

Please SUBSCRIBE to Science & Reason:

Global climate change … NASA’s eyes on the Earth: A warming world – global temperature update … piecing together the temperature puzzle.

Each year, scientists at NASA’S Goddard Institute for Space Studies analyze global temperature data. The past year, 2009, tied as the second warmest year since global instrumental temperature records began 130 years ago. Worldwide, the mean temperature was 0.57°C (1.03°F) warmer than the 1951-1980 base period. And January 2000 to December 2009 came out as the warmest decade on record.


2009 was tied for the second warmest year in the modern record, a new NASA analysis of global surface temperature shows. The analysis, conducted by the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York City, also shows that in the Southern Hemisphere, 2009 was the warmest year since modern records began in 1880.

Although 2008 was the coolest year of the decade, due to strong cooling of the tropical Pacific Ocean, 2009 saw a return to near-record global temperatures. The past year was only a fraction of a degree cooler than 2005, the warmest year on record, and tied with a cluster of other years — 1998, 2002, 2003, 2006 and 2007 1998 and 2007 — as the second warmest year since recordkeeping began.

“There’s always an interest in the annual temperature numbers and on a given year’s ranking, but usually that misses the point,” said James Hansen, the director of GISS. “There’s substantial year-to-year variability of global temperature caused by the tropical El Niño-La Niña cycle. But when we average temperature over five or ten years to minimize that variability, we find that global warming is continuing unabated.”

January 2000 to December 2009 was the warmest decade on record. Throughout the last three decades, the GISS surface temperature record shows an upward trend of about 0.2°C (0.36°F) per decade. Since 1880, the year that modern scientific instrumentation became available to monitor temperatures precisely, a clear warming trend is present, though there was a leveling off between the 1940s and 1970s.

The near-record temperatures of 2009 occurred despite an unseasonably cool December in much of North America. High air pressures in the Arctic decreased the east-west flow of the jet stream, while also increasing its tendency to blow from north to south and draw cold air southward from the Arctic. This resulted in an unusual effect that caused frigid air from the Arctic to rush into North America and warmer mid-latitude air to shift toward the north.

“Of course, the contiguous 48 states cover only 1.5 percent of the world area, so the U.S. temperature does not affect the global temperature much,’ said Hansen. In total, average global temperatures have increased by about 0.8°C (1.5°F) since 1880.

“That’s the important number to keep in mind,” said Gavin Schmidt, another GISS climatologist. “In contrast, the difference between, say, the second and sixth warmest years is trivial since the known uncertainty — or noise — in the temperature measurement is larger than some of the differences between the warmest years.”

Decoding the Temperature Record: Climate scientists agree that rising levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases trap incoming heat near the surface of the Earth and are the key factors causing the rise in temperatures since 1880, but these gases are not the only factors that can impact global temperatures.

The global warming debate is truly a very colorful controversy. You may be inclined to believe one side over the other, and both sides are highly active at defending their stance. How do skeptics to the global warming hypothesis defend their stand that there is no global increase in the surface temperature of the earth?

You may think stress is related to the case of climate change. Then you need to look for a global warming hoax that is created by many people. You will be able to see the issue from another side as it can be so exciting.

In 2007, there was a claim that the Himalayan glaciers are melting. The U.N Intergovernmental Panel detected the announcement by interviewing a scientist to find out the truth. They then conclude that it is pure speculation that didn’t supported by any research.

The IPCC reported that the global warming is going to kill 40 percent of the Amazon rainforest and cut African crop yields 50 percent. It is known as a propaganda that doesn’t mean any important thing. In 2007, they also declared about 55 percent of Netherlands would be below the sea level.

While the Arctic ice cap, there was some information that would be expanding by 1000,000 kilometers for the next 30 years. From the scientist, the information becomes only 3,800 square miles of new Antarctic ice every year. It makes the report of the British Antarctica Survey in 2009 canceled.

Next hoax is about the worst winters ever in America because of knowing of hurricane season among the mildest. The facts said that it doesn’t prove anything because in 2005 hurricane season brought four major storms to the U.S coast. Furthermore, Katrina occurring among those seasons cut the theory that in 2009 during the hurricane season.

The climate research unit at East Anglia University, as the backup of scientific information for IPCC, is also involved in such global warming hoax. They apparently threw out basic data about claiming of the rise in global temperatures as effect global warming for the century. A hacker entered the e-mail files and found CRU scientists had squelched the publication of dissenting views.

Polar bears are not vanishing and sea levels are not rising like the 20-foot surge this century. Beaches are not disappearing; temperatures have not been rising since late 1990s. That information is totally surprising, especially for us who didn’t know it. Then we can conclude in historic terms, global warming is not at all unprecedented.
