Satellite Temperature Update For April

May 7, 2015

By Paul Homewood 


Both UAH and RSS have released their global temperature data for April, and both are down on March, continuing the steady downward trend since the start of the year.





Despite El Nino conditions for the last year, there has been no increase in the 12-month trends since 2002.

The divergence from the dodgy surface data continues!

    There is a consistent difference of about 0.15 deg K between the two curves, is there a simple reason for this difference?
    Also, can the satellite data be used to prove the homogenised data fiddle that is now being taken seriously or is the timescale of this data too short?

      I had the same question: what kind of moving average is that?

      Do you mean between UAH and RSS?

      If so, it is because they use different baselines, 1981-2010 and 1979-98 respectively.

    The correction to the UAH data now shows that RSS and UAH are spot on, thus confirming the data and the validation of satellite records as compared to surface drivel. I wonder if a surface data from unadjusted raw data compares well from 1998 to the satellite data…

      Over the weekend, I’ll see if I can extract the USA UAH data and compare it to the USCRN since 2005. Should be interesting.

    Thank you, Paul, for the update on satellite temperature data.

    I am grateful to scientists who still report temperature measurements without regard to political pressure.

    As each of us awaken to reality: George Orwell correctly predicted our future in the novel he started writing in 1946, “Nineteen Eighty-Four,” it is natural to lash out in anger at those who adjust, hide or ignore data that conflicted with:

    1. The AGW (anthropological global warming) dogma for climatologists

    2. The SSM (standard solar model) of H-filled stars for solar and space scientists

    3. Yukawa’s SNM (standard nuclear model) for nuclear and theoretical physicists

    4. The BBC (Big Bang Cosmology) model for cosmologists and theoretical physicists, . . .

    but they are NOT at fault. With few exceptions, every mainstream scientist must find, bend, ignore or adjust evidence to support Big Brother’s ‘consensus science.’

    Do not despair.

    The force of creation of every atom, life and world in the solar system appears to be benevolently guided by the conscious and intelligent Mind that Max Planck acknowledged in his 1944 speech at Florence, Italy on the “Matrix of Matter.”

    I do not understand it myself, but human selfishness would probably have already destroyed the human species if not for this benevolent force.

    I.e., we need to be loving and tolerant – as far as possible – toward those who have not yet awakened to reality and are still caught in Big Brother’s matrix of deceit.

    Thanks, Paul.
    The global LT temperature keeps on not changing much.
    No wonder the warmunists changed their brand name from “Global Warming” to “Climate Change”, like if it ever was not changing.
    But never so fast! They claim, I say: look at the data.

    Paul, UAH has not been updated. publication of data is several days after a verbal announcement.

    From your link
    2015 2 0.140 0.257 0.023 -0.103
    2015 3 0.117 0.199 0.034 0.010
    2015 4-999.000-999.000-999.000-999.000

    Curiously, UAH V5.6 has been updated, so has RSS.

    Here are plots of April as PDF, can be zoomed, not a lot going on
    RSS TLT V3.3
    UAH TLT V5.6

    Looking at the graph and the shape of the wave following the smoothed temperatures, has anyone checked this decadal time-span shape against the larger Interglacial period wave shape? Is this a reflection of the larger scale temperature changes? Is this scalable at different levels to show similarities? This could be used to fine tune our expectation of the start of rapid decline into a full blown ice age, if true…
