Phil Jones : August, 1850 Was 1.182 Degrees Below Normal

CRUTEM3v – August 1850. Phil had one thermometer record for the entire southern hemisphere, and was able to precisely calculate the hemispheric mean temperature anomaly of -1.182

    It would be amusing to plot the subsequent global temperature using data from only the same grid squares as used in the 1850 plot.

    Yeah but Steve Mosher says this is how science is done and he trusts the scientists.

    I fear they’ve developed DRB Syndrome (dirty rotten bastard).

    Phil’s buddy Trenberth ran quickly from Stratwarm studies a few years ago and someone needs to ask him why?

    This is the same dead-certain teleconnection approach used by the tree-ring fraudsters to estimate global or NH temperatures in centuries past based on a few bristle cone pines in one location in the US Southwest, and assuming stationarity of the relationship between ring width or density and temperature.

    Its BAU ‘climate science.’ What’s the problem?

    It shows up how poor a technique it is to average temperatures over a geographical area. The temperature of one place is that place’s temperature only. It can not be smeared across a region, as currently done by Hansen et al, to try and give the globe an average temperature, when using fewer and fewer weather stations.

    The full file gives the 95% confidence range for the August 1850 figure as between +0.323 and -2.911C.
