Global Warming Surprises
Temperature data in dispute can reverse conclusions about human influence on climate.
"Exploring some of the intricacies of climate science can lead to surprising results that have major consequences," writes S. Fred Singer, Ph.D., professor emeritus at the University of Virginia and a founding director of the Science & Environmental Policy Project. In recent invited talk at The Heartland Institute’s Twelfth International Conference on Climate Change, summarized in an American Thinker essay slightly revised and reprinted here as a NIPCC Policy Brief, Singer investigated three important topics:
1. Inconsistencies in the surface temperature record.
2. Their explanation as artifacts arising from the misuse of data.
3. How this misuse of data explains the failure of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to find credible evidence for anthropogenic global warming.
