RSS and UAH used to track closely

July 4, 2017

By Paul Homewood

It has been suggested that the UAH and RSS datasets were not in close alignment prior to the latter’s recent massive adjustments.
These are needless to say fake claims:

UAH anomalies consistently run slightly below RSS, because of the different baselines used – UAH use 1981-2010, RSS 1979-98.(1979-98 temps are obviously a bit below 1981-2010, hence RSS anomalies appear slightly higher).

However both UAH and RSS track closely together, unlike GISS which rises rapidly. Hence the need to deal with the thorn in the side that is RSS.

    Well I guess its possible that RSS has recognised a valid correction which they both previously missed. But it sure is fishy

    The fact that Christy and Spencer have not been involved makes it a great deal more than just fishy.

      I wonder which AGW cultists did the peer-review / spell-check..

      Almost certainly someone who knows basically nothing about the subject.

      I agree. At the very least RSS should have provided UAH with. A preprint for them to scrutinise and comment on. And the editors should have insisted on UAH’s right of reply

    For everyone’s reference. Here is the graph of RSS V4 – v3.3
    Its like looking at Gavin or Tom Karl’s ‘work’

    It’s clear that an all out effort is being made to disappear the observed climate record and warm it and Karlerize the record on every front. Trump needs to step in and have this really reviewed by impartial panels led by statisticians… not advocate/activist “Climate Scientists”

    I saved a plot of all the major temperature records after GISS first adopted the “pausebuster” data. I wish I had done so before GISS changed, because previously, it too agreed with all the other data sets reasonably well.
