If you ask renowned IPCC scientists what the mean global temperature is today, they tell you it’s 14.5°C.
And if you ask them what it was 20 years ago, you would expect the answer to be about 14°C. Surprisingly, their literature from 20 years ago tell us unanimously that in 1990 the global temperature was 15.5°C, one degree Celsius more than today. Look at their own charts below!
The charts that follow are from a compliation made by Rainer Hoffmann of Solarkritik.de.
CHARTS FROM 1990
1991: Here is a German government chart, based on Schönwiese. Global temperature in 1991: 15.5°C
1988: Der Spiegel reported a global mean temperature of 15.5°C:
1992: Christian-Dietrich Schönwiese in his book Klima Im Wandel on pages 72 and 73: Global temperature computed from satellite measurements was 15.5°C.
Rainer Hoffmann presents other sources from the early 1990s confirming the 15.5°C mean global temperature 20 years ago. Back then 15.5°C appeared to be the consensus among the scientific community.
CHARTS FROM TODAY
Now 20 years later in 2012. The IPCC scientists are telling us that the current mean global temperature is 14.5°C. One degree celsius less. Why the downgrade?
In 2012 IPCC honchos Hans-Joachim Schellhuber and Stefan Rahmstorf in their recent 7th edition book Der Klimawandel (see the next chart below) cite Hadley, saying today the global average temperature is 14.5°C. That’s a whole degree less!
Mojib Latif on March, 12, 2012 at his presentation in Hamburg confirmed the current global mean temperature of 14.5°C.
The IPCC’s 4th Assessment report of 2007 also used the 14.5° figure for the mean global temperature.
At that rate of colling, 15.5° in 1990 to 14.5° in 2010, we’ll be deep into an ice age by the end of the century.
How can we be having global warming when the temperature went from 15.5°C in the early 1990s to only 14.5°C today? Are climate scientists just throwing out numbers?
How much are 14.5 – 15.5? The answer is -1.0. But the IPCC is telling us it’s +0.5.
These numbers prove that there’s something arbitrary, fishy and fraudulent about the climate data being fed to the public today. It means nobody really has a clue what the global temperature really is.
