1999 Version Of GISS Global Station Temperatures Showed No Warming From 1860’s To 1970’s

This link hasn’t disappeared yet off the web archive. The 1999 version of GISS global station data showed 1877 as the hottest year prior to 1980, with the 1960’s/1970’s about the same temperature as 100 years earlier.

    Clearly the data was wrong, as there was no absolute trend.

    The obvious difference I note is that after the 1860s-70s temperatures got even lower, while after the 1970s they increased up to the end of the century. The sine shaped trend is a coincidence in this case.

    Obviously the data didn’t match the Xbox games models, of course.

    And that would never do,,,

    There’s some kind of problem with the plot you are showing. I mean, CO2, Man-Made CO2 is going ever upward; but the plot shows something roughly cyclical… that can’t be right according to Climate Science wherein CO2 controls earth temperature like a thermostat, all things being equal, statistically speaking, a roll of the dice, radiant properties of CO2, settled science, consistent with a warming world; etc. /sarc

    Goddard truncated the 1999 dataset at 1980, leaving off two decades of data. Goddard knows very well that using all of the data makes his exercise in curve fitting a complete farce The data he chose to ignore climbs immediately upward. All this article does is demonstrate how blatantly deceitful and entirely false.

    But this is typical of the likes of Goddard, Watt, and greater population of the denialist crowd. And it highlights, in bold relief, why the term “denier” fits so well. It is this consistent behavior of for willful ignorance that defines them.

    Since Henry P. Hasn’t mentioned it yet, 88 year Gleissberg solar cycle comes immediately to mind.

    NASA Finds Sun-Climate Connection in Old Nile Records

    …Alexander Ruzmaikin and Joan Feynman of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., together with Dr. Yuk Yung of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, Calif., have analyzed Egyptian records of annual Nile water levels collected between 622 and 1470 A.D. at Rawdah Island in Cairo….

    A similarly accurate record exists for auroral activity during the same time period in northern Europe and the Far East. People there routinely and carefully observed and recorded auroral activity, because auroras were believed to portend future disasters, such as droughts and the deaths of kings….

    The researchers found some clear links between the sun’s activity and climate variations. The Nile water levels and aurora records had two somewhat regularly occurring variations in common – one with a period of about 88 years and the second with a period of about 200 years.
