Half of global warming due to weather station data homogenization


More climate science, as distinct from climate pseudo-science!

When “skeptics” argue about the validity of CAGW, it is not always against the claim of actual average GT increases. Some actual warming is real because of a higher population density, energy usage (not pollution but creation of heat in the process),  and terrain changes resulting in more stored and measured heat. (Loosely described as ‘urban heat island’ effect).

Then there is the possibility that due to the solar heat source, read “where the heat comes from“, and related factors, it is not necessarily so that the planet has an ongoing warming trend. Historically,  trends include cooling phases and it is conceivable that this will not change. Some evidence suggests we are already into such a cooling phase.

One of the main “skeptic” arguments is that ‘claimed measured temperature increases’ are false or exaggerated. This argument is strongly supported by this particular article, reblogged from WUWT.

So, of the claimed warming, part is due to “urban heat”, some is due to “cooking the books” and whatever remains is a lot less. The ‘lot less’ still remains to be scientifically convincingly tied to the atmospheric CO2 level.

Bottom line, the carbon control mechanisms are a fraud as they have no valid scientific basis.
