Aurora, Colorado Surface Temperature, 1768-2011

Using the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) data here, the following plot was created. It represents regional climate change for Aurora, Colorado…..more specficially, 39.38N 104.05W.

The plot shows the mean monthly surface temperature, the mean daily maximum surface temperature, and the mean daily minimum surface temperture. Clearly, the range of actual temperature changes experienced in recent years is not extremely different than in the past. Sure, some years are colder or warmer than others, but so what. Natural variability such as this is to be expected.

This first cut look at this data suggests that the people sounding alarms over an impending climate catastrophe are in a world of their own. The historical record suggests a very broad yet defined band of highly variable temperatures. This might be more apparent if the actual data is plotted rather than mean values. We’ll work on presenting that in the future, as it will take some time to dig through the BEST data set. The data for the graph below (and the others I have posted) are the means calculated by BEST.

$582,000 fluoride payout to continue in Phoenix (AZ)

A Phoenix subcommittee (secret committee) didn’t vote, but decided that the city would continue to add fluoride.  Click here….In a big city these are big dollars going to someone….

Large cities like Phoenix, Portland, Chicago, etc that are essentially under liberal mob rule will hold the line to add fluorde……If customers don’t want it and can’t vote it out, then bottled waters and some home treatment devices are the only option….

The situation in Egypt is not being taken seriously by the US State Dept….compromise with such intolerant people is not possible…..

Florida Surface Temperature, 1743-2011

Using the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) data here, the following plot was created. It represents regional climate change for the State of Florida. The plot shows the mean monthly surface temperature, the mean daily maximum surface temperature, and the mean daily minimum surface temperture. Compare the plot below with that provided here based on the same underlying data.

More work is needed to examine the BEST data and algorithms, but this first cut suggests that the people sounding alarms over an impending climate catastrophe are in a world of their own. The historical record suggests a very broad yet defined band of highly variable temperatures. This might be more apparent if the actual data is plotted rather than mean values. We’ll work on presenting that in the future, as it will take some time to dig through the BEST data set. The data for the graph below (and the others I have posted) are the means calculated by BEST.

Acatech President Reinhard Hüttl: Germany can cope with climate conditions

German Academy of Science and Engineering (Deutsche Akademie der Technikwissenschaften or Acatech) President Reinhard Hüttl:

“No climate conditions are going to occur here that already do not exist on the globe elsewhere and that we cannot cope with.”

The above statement was based on a study commissioned by the German Federal government. For the complete story, click here (Notrickszone.com)
