El Nino and 21st Century Warming (Guest: Roy Spencer, Ph.D.)

June 5, 2019

Politicians, politicized scientists and activists will have you believe that 100% of 21st century warming is anthropogenic. Dr. Roy Spencer joins Anthony Watts to explain why they’re wrong.

When ranking politicized issues in the 21st century, global warming is surely near the top. Radical environmentalists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez want to drastically reshape America under the guise of fighting global warming. Dr. Roy Spencer, Principal Research Scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, joins Heartland Senior Fellow Anthony Watts to discuss why radical change is unwarranted. The two talk about the effects of El Nino, the surface temperature record, and satellite measurements of the Earth’s temperature.

Dr. Roy Spencer was a Senior Scientist for Climate Studies at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, where he and Dr. John Christy received NASA’s Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal for their global temperature monitoring work with satellites. @RoyWSpencer
