Global Temperature In 2017: Not A Resurgence Of Global Warming

It is clear that 2017 was a very warm year.

Tomorrow, NOAA, NASA and the UK Met Office will announce by how much.

Global temperature data for the last 12 months refutes the idea that the warmth of 2017 was due to a resurgence of global warming. In fact, the world has been cooling. –David Whitehouse, The GWPF Observatory, 17 January 2018

It’s only been about a week since New York City filed suit against five major oil companies, and one economist has already found basic factual errors in the city’s legal filing. —Michael Bastasch, Daily Caller, 16 January 2018

Just out, the first book to be published by the London-based Global Warming Policy Foundation is by the Australian writer/researcher Bernie Lewin, a detailed – and damning – historical deconstruction of the origins of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), titled Searching For The Catastrophe Signal. Acclaimed climate scientist Dr. Judith Curry calls it an “important new book” and goes on to provide targeted commentary “in context of the theme of ‘detection and attribution’, ‘policy cart in front of the scientific horse’ and ‘manufacturing consensus’.” —The Spectator (Australian Edition), 9 January 2018

Domestic wood burning has become more widespread in Europe in recent years. Exposure to smoke from domestic biomass use caused 40,000 deaths across the EU28 in 2014, a new study claims. —Linde Zuidema, Euractiv, 8 January 2018

Investment in clean energy plunged 56% in Britain, more than in any other country last year because of government policy changes, new figures show. —Adam Vaughan, The Guardian, 16 January 2018

Guess which state has the highest poverty rate in the country? Not Mississippi, New Mexico, or West Virginia, but California, where nearly one out of five residents is poor. That’s according to the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure, which factors in the cost of housing, food, utilities and clothing, and which includes noncash government assistance as a form of income. —Kerry Jackson, Los Angeles Times, 14 January 2018

    I know for a fact it wasn’t the “warmest year “on record because Bill Nye hasn’t placed a bet saying it was .
    Of course the data manipulators at NOAA may have a few “natural tricks ” up their sleeves so you never know .
