OMG! Yes, I just OMGed, not something I'm proud. It's like constantly being hit over the head with a baseball bat.
For those reading, THE FACTS are that places like NASA (one of the four agencies that measures global temps) are telling you that it has warmed the past 15 years, that there are certain weather conditions (like El Niño) that change the temps but that the trend is that it has warmed and is continuing to warm.
THE FACTS are that they measure more than surface temps to determine what is happening to the Earth (father only cares about the surface temps but the scientists are telling you that it ALL matters).
I'm going to quote my posts from yesterday as there is some great reading as to how it all works and also include more (which include links to those data sets that father is obsessed with). But, The ESCALATOR I've provided many times explains the warming trend and uses all four (it may be three?) data sets.
I don't just care about the graphs though, I care about the conclusions that places like NASA are drawing from their VAST experience and research and the conclusions they are drawing are that it has warmed the past 15/16 years, it continues to warm, the weather extremes are dangerous to the environment and the warming trend is detrimental to the Earth's environment. Those are THE FACTS. They also care more about just the 15/16 years and it continues to baffle me as to why Father is so hung up on this one time period when the scientists are telling him not only do they look at so much more but it is warming!
There are plenty of graphs included in all the links if those are the sorts of things that tickle you. (I already know which graph Father will copy and past for you but please keep in mind the conclusions these scientists are drawing and that they care about so much more than just surface temps, yet they still conclude there is a warming trend in surface temps).
