This really gets to me.  (LOL.)  This is how the article, in the Christian Science Monitor, starts out: 

                                                                                Photobucket

“A new climate study shows that since the mid-1950s, global average temperatures over land have risen by 0.9 degrees Celsius (1.6 degrees Fahrenheit), confirming previous studies that have found a climate that has been warming – in fits and starts – since around 1900.”

My argument, right away, is (that) science has said they changed their position to global warming, from global freezing (much-talked about in the late 1960s and early 70s), because, now, their instruments are better for measuring and calculating.  But, I say, if those instruments were so inaccurate, in the ’60s and ’70s, how can their “calculations” now, based on that inaccurate data, be accurate?

Coupled with the fact that, over a period of 60 years, 1.6 degrees isn’t much.  (Maybe it’s only a measure of how much their equipment has improved.  (LOL!!)

The article, noted above, mentions that some say there were serious flaws in the data and analytical methods used in other studies and some data was discarded as unusable.

This new study made use of that “unusable” data and thinks it’s findings are more accurate because of it.  In my opinion, it’s just another person’s or group’s opinion as to whether that data is usable.  Which person/group is right?

The term “trend” is used a lot to describe the scientific conclusions on global warming.  There’s an example in this article:  “Besides confirming the temperature trend, the Berkeley group says…”.    Trends (to me) are not forever-ongoing.  A trend in fashion, or cars, or housing, is merely a direction it’s going for a relative short period of time.   The trend, then, changes direction and new trends immerge.  Trends toward mini skirts and hybrid cars does always mean we will want them in our wardrobes and garages forever.

   

I think this “trend” in warming is merely part of a Universe cycle and the temperatures will will cooling again.  Scientists don’t know how the celestial bodies of the Universe work together and their influences on the Earth.  Science can not predict hurricanes, earthquakes and other natural disasters, why should we think it can predict ongoing global warming?
