Earth’s temperature hasn’t risen for the last 15 years – Daily Mail




The world was originally said to be warming at a rate of 0.13 degrees C, (per decade) in the 2007 report.
The 2012 report shows that was WRONG, it is only 0.12 degrees C  (per decade) !!!

The UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change compiles reports on “Climate Change” and Global Warming/Cooling, and their last report was in 2007 when they first claimed that the Himalayas would melt by 2035. That was subsequently revised.

The current report, for 2012  which has not yet been released, is being quoted in many papers with various headlines and statements.

The main one being picked on is the change between 1998 and the current figures, where there has been no accumulated change.

However, 1998 is claimed as being the hottest year on record, and as such is not a good base year to use for statistical examples.

A Belgium spokesperson has said that using 1999 or 2000 instead, would show a more upward-pointing curve, compared to the flat line from 1998 to 2012.

How about using 2010 ?

Year Temperature
2010 14.63°C
2011 14.52°C
2012 14.47°C

And we see that the Earth is steadily Cooling…

Selecting any specific year to work from, can ALWAYS provide different results.

An example of this is; starting with a very cool year, before 1998, and comparing that to the hot 1998, which proves that the earth is warming fast enough to burn the world in 100 years. But selecting different dates may prove that we have over 1 billion years left.

One report which headlines “predict the Sun will wipe out all life on the planet” puts that figure at between 1.75 and 3.5 billion years from now.

Back to my heading: Global Warming: The Facts – 2013

Which facts do you want ?  I am sure I can accommodate any facts, to prove either scenario… 😉  I just need to select the right start and finish years.

If I select the last Ice Age and compare to 1998, then yes, the earth is warming up fast. The change in 10,000 years was from about one third of the earth being covered in ice, to the hottest recent year.

1998 to 2011 and we see that the Earth has cooled from 14.58°C down to 14.52°C

But if we select the period that changed the original Sahara Desert with adequate water and covered with vegetation, into the Sahara Desert, against 2012 figures, we may get a different picture. My guess is that those years, when the heat dried out the entire area, would have been much hotter than they are today.

The Hottest Year on Record…

When we see statements talking about xxxx being the hottest year on record, how far back do they go ?

1934 has been quoted, but that only applied to an area in the USA… NOT representative of the entire Earth.

1880 seems to be the year that most records began, according to many reports.

How about we look back about 100,000 years ago, when the planets heat killed of the Woolly Mammoth? Pity we don’t know the exact temperature of the earth then, and what caused the planet to heat up, from that particular previous Ice Age.

Another headline:

2012 was the 9th Hottest Year on Record Worldwide – followed by “2012 was the ninth hottest year for the globe since 1880” as the wording in the article.

we can not avoid global warming, and we need to be conscious that we need to help our planet , we need to do it for the health of our children , lets pollute less
