I need help. I came across a chart that I immediately recognized. It is the top of the chart on the right. My good friend Josh Gnaizda and I had been working on the two satellite streams of data that were first created in 1979. They are shown in the top chart.
What the satellite data showed to me was that we had two periods of zero change in the temperature of the earth’s surface. One was from 1979 to 1996 and the other, a few tenths of a degree Fahrenheit higher, was from 1998 to the present. What happened from 1996 to 1998 was a significant El Nino.
When I saw the bottom chart with data for the same period from radiosonde devices lifted on balloons that measured air temp at multiple altitudes I was stunned. The data corroborated the satellite data that Josh and I had worked on. In other words, both sets of data, independently generated corroborated each other.
Josh investigated the radiosonde data from NOAA and put it on Excel spreadsheets to examine. He converted it to Fahrenheit. The raw data he got went back to 1958. Fifty eight years of data from 800 balloon measurements every day at the same time, globally.
What does the data show. First that the satellite data we used was reliable. Second, that over a 58 year period The global surface temperature only changed 1.3 degrees Fahrenheit. One point three degrees.
In the Northern Hemisphere it changed 2.0 degrees and in the Southern Hemisphere 0.8 tenth of a degree. (from column T) That makes sense in terms of the Northwest Passage in the Arctic opening up and the increased size of the Antarctic icecap. Also the Northern Hemisphere has much more land and urban population than the vast oceania of the South.
A valid scientific theory is defined these days by the work of Karl Popper. He said a theory can never be proven, it can only be falsified. If ever data falsified the global warming theory of an impending apocalypse it is this data. There can be no impending global temperature rise of apocalyptic proportion. This data shows it. One degree Fahrenheit globally in 58 years.
The thing that is unfathomable to me is that this information has been hidden. How can that be? A Google search will not turn up this data except recently. The world has a conference to stop global warming and 180 nations pledge to take action. Yet here is the data that disproves that world conference premise.
