Climate cycles are measured in the tens of thousands of years and we're getting all excited about barely a century`s worht of records being broken?

It`s kind of like celebrating a Superbowl victory for your team after the first down of their opening drive in the first game of the regular season.

When I worked as a CPA performing financial statement audits and I tried to issue an opinion based on sample sizes that small, it wouldn`t be long before I would have lost my license. Doesn`t anyone study statistics anymore to understand what it says about sample sizes relative to the population?

@Argus_Tuft: So insults are valid forms of argument at MIT? Do you have a PHD in "Potty Mouth"?

The FACTS as shown before you: You are wrong.

You have DIFFERENT facts? Link them.

Yeah, Crakr. You're probably right. I`ve only been an MCT and MCAS Master for 25 years. Oh, and a Model 204 developer. So, yeah, you`re probably right, again.

I`d love to see things from your denialist point of view, but I can`t get my head that far up my ass.

ArgusTuft: It's pretty clear you don`t know how to read graphs, let alone trend line them.

a slight rise of +.4 C over 40 years is not statistically significant to attribute to CO2 or any other anthropogenic cause.

Also, if you take the data from 1998 to today and trend line it, the anomaly has leveled out at +.2 C since then.

@Argus_Tuft: 2.5C?? huh?

From -.02C to +.025C= 0.45C by MY maths... that rounds out to about 1.1C per century, which isn't much more than what`s been average since the Little Ice Age (0.8C) with NO human influence.

Where on EARTH do you get +2.5C in 40 years from the graphic @CrakrJak posted? The ENTIRE range is 1.5C, your measure would be way off the scale!

Or you mean a RATE of 2.5C per century? You have a link? The graphic of his data says NO such thing...
