The official global temperature numbers are in, and NOAA and NASA have decided that 2015 was the warmest year on record. Based mostly upon surface thermometers, the official pronouncement ignores the other two primary ways of measuring global air temperatures, satellites and radiosondes (weather ...

The RSS satellite dataset shows no global warming at all for 224 months from May 1997 to December 2015 – more than half the 444-month satellite record.

‘Rapid cooling’ underway: Big Drop In Earth’s June Temperatures According To Satellites

Weather satellites have been available to determine sea surface temperature information since 1967, with the first global composites created during 1970. Since 1982, satellites have been increasingly utilized to measure SST and have allowed its spatial and temporal variation to be viewed more fully.

Comprehensive and meticulously documented facts about global warming. Learn about greenhouse gases, global temperatures, causes and effects, politics, and more.

Measuring Humidity. Humidity can be measured using a variety of instruments. Relative humidity is often determined using a sling psychrometer or a hair hygrometer.

Examines the science and arguments of global warming skepticism. Common objections like 'global warming is caused by the sun', 'temperature has changed naturally in the past' or 'other planets are warming too' are examined to see what the science really says.

Nov 13, 2010 · Researchers have been startled to see signs of rapid melting in Greenland and Antarctica, but lack data to precisely calculate how much flooding could result.
