No Warming In The Arctic In The Last 10 Years
By Paul Homewood
It is probably fair to say most people believe that the Arctic is warming, and warming quickly. But is it?
Monthly RSS satellite temperature anomalies for the Arctic, 60N to 82.5N, are shown below, with the 12-Month running averages.
There is clearly a rise in temperature since 1979, most of which seems to have occurred between 1995 and 2003.
But what about the last 10 years? Let’s take a closer look.
Since 2003, temperatures appear to have been pretty flat. (The purple line is the trend, not the mean, by the way, and the slope is insignificantly small).
There is no evidence here that suggests a 7C increase by 2100.
