Meet the “new measure of global warming” — the same as the old measure.
The Economist reports that “a new study of current data and analysis by Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature offers strong support to the existing temperature compilations.”
But they all get the same answer because they all use the same urban heat island-biased and otherwise manipulated temperature readings.
Moreover, whether or not the bogus constructs of “mean global temperature” or “mean land temperature” are rising or falling is irrelevant. The central issue in the global warming debate is whether manmade greenhouse gas emissions are causing temperature changes — a point that climate alarmist The Economist seems to miss (ignore?).
Let’s not get fooled again!
