why science is wrong… about almost everything — review by Society for Psychical Research

Well, before you go, why not explain what is wrong with my figure for total global warming since 1880? Also, I don't speak on behalf of anyone but myself.

Well, you took that well, I'll give you that.

However, before you write off everything I've said by injecting your own (ego) questions, how about we follow the format where I have already asked you a question, and before I am to just drop everything I've said and answer this query from you, you answer my question first, since, I asked my question first?

What is the cause of death when blue stains show up in the mouth of an animal?

Well for God's sake, how do I know, but it isn't likely to be anything to do with it being 0.8 C hotter than in 1880, is it? My guess would be that they have found some sort of poisonous mushroom that unfortunately tasted rather good (or gave them an interesting high)!

Well, perhaps you should tell me first WHY it is warmer today than it was in 1880. It may very well be one in the same reason, I don't know why you believe that it is 0.8 C warmer today. Do you have a good reason as to why it is 0.8 C warmer today than it was in 1880?

And your reason can not be: because Sauron branded my hide with "0.8 above 1880"

If you place an arbitrary collection of thermometers on the earth in an arbitrary distribution (which describes the thermometers used for the land data), would you expect the average of those thermometer measurements to be more stable that 0.8 C? As the physics Nobel Prizewinner, Ivar Giaever commented, it is surprising that the temperatures are as stable as that right now!

In any case, why were there significantly warmer and colder periods throughout history - there was a time when vines were grown in Northern England, and another time when the Thames regularly froze over so that fairs were held on the surface! Industrial production of CO2 had nothing to do with those variations. If we started to enter the equivalent of the medieval warm period right now, the climate scientists would go berserk, but not only were these periods quite natural, but they ultimately ended, and did no overall harm because some places probably got a bit too hot, but others were beneficially warmed up.

CAGW is a global fad, like the dotcom boon it will pass, and the windmills will serve as reminders of this folly.

"The increase in global temperatures since the late 19th century just reflects the end of the Little Ice Age. The global temperature trends since then have followed not rising CO2 trends but the ocean temperature cycles of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) and the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO). Every 20 to 30 years, the much colder water near the bottom of the oceans cycles up to the top, where it has a slight cooling effect on global temperatures until the sun warms that water. That warmed water then contributes to slightly warmer global temperatures, until the next churning cycle.​
Those ocean temperature cycles, and the continued recovery from the Little Ice Age, are primarily why global temperatures rose from 1915 until 1945, when CO2 emissions were much lower than in recent years. The change to a cold ocean temperature cycle, primarily the PDO, is the main reason that global temperatures declined from 1945 until the late 1970s, despite the soaring CO2 emissions during that time from the postwar industrialization spreading across the globe. "​

The 20 to 30 year ocean temperature cycles turned back to warm from the late 1970s until the late 1990s, which is the primary reason that global temperatures warmed during this period. But that warming ended 15 years ago, and global temperatures have stopped increasing since then, if not actually cooled, even though global CO2 emissions have soared over this period. As The Economist magazine reported in March, “The world added roughly 100 billion tonnes of carbon to the atmosphere between 2000 and 2010. That is about a quarter of all the CO2 put there by humanity since 1750.” Yet, still no warming during that time. That is because the CO2 greenhouse effect is weak and marginal compared to natural causes of global temperature changes. "​
Natural causes such as ocean currents and solar cycles are a better explanation for the climate data than CO2 produced by human activity.

Why was it warmer in 1100 AD than 1880?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medieval_Warm_Period

The Medieval Warm Period (MWP) also known as the Medieval Climate Optimum, or Medieval Climatic Anomalywas a time of warm climate in the North Atlantic region that may have been related to other warming events in other regions during that time, including China[1] and other areas,[2][3] lasting from c. 950 to c. 1250.[4] Other regions were colder, such as the tropical Pacific. Averaged global mean temperatures have been calculated to be similar to early-mid 20th century warming. Possible causes of the Medieval Warm Period include increased solar activity, decreased volcanic activity, and changes to ocean circulation.[5]​
