Climategate's Ben Santer's 17-Year Global Warming Trend: It Indicates Only A +0.95°C Increase By 2100
NOAA & NCDC Publish Data That Has Global Warming Trend Reaching An Increase of Only +0.95 Degree By 2100
Read here. A couple of month's ago we provided several charts using the new Ben Santer 17-year rule of global warming. Those charts clearly indicated that Ben's hysterical, runaway global warming fears (and the IPCC's) were not related to any empirical climate reality.
In a new press release, Ben Santer (of Climategate-violence fame) again pleads with everyone that 17 years is really the true time span to measure the global warming trend.
Unfortunately for "Gentle" Ben, as this latest adjacent 17-year chart of NOAA/NCDC global temperatures reveals [Excel produced], global warming remains insignificant over the past 17 years, ending as of October 2011; and global temperatures continue a trend towards cooling, while CO2 levels keep growing at a robust pace.
The linear trend of the data implies a barely noticeable warming increase of +0.95C degree by year 2100.
This up-to-date 17-year empirical evidence is irrefutable and confirms the catastrophic global warming skeptics position.
Soooo....why does Ben Santer keep pushing the "CO2-causes-runaway-global-warming" schtick that is without any empirical merit?
Hmmm....would assurring that the free taxpayer, global warming research monies keep on flowing be the likely cause?
