PS I need to create a new BOX account to allow file sharing. When I can do this, I will provide a link so that you can download my complete spreadsheet of temperature data, and you can verify it yourself. Maybe even do some more advanced number crunching, or correlate them to nuke bomb testing and sunspots. Have at it! For now if you need the file, email me, and I will send it to you.
Bottom line, Global Warming has certainly occurred since 1880, but temperatures go in cycles, and "we" (meaning humans including scientists) do not understand them. There is a lot of complex stuff that affects weather, and yours truly strongly believes that sunspots and other sun magnetic and electric effects and as also related to cosmic ray blocking are WAY more important than CO2 from fossil fuel burning. Most of the Egg Head scientists don't even understand solar spots and are crappy at predicting cycles, and befuddled when there academia programmed minds can't operate to understand a process when it conflicts with their "training".
Bottom line---there has been NO GLOBAL WARMING over the past 17 years. Isn't that an "inconvenient truth" for those who wish to transfer wealth via Cap and Trade type acts. Also pretty inconveneint for those who wish to promote a dying nuclear energy field by stating that it can help reduce global warming.
Fact, we are seeing some more extreme weather months in the last 17 years, BUT the standard deviation is actually going down, see the chart. What does it mean?
Simple. Those in the boomer and post boomer generations have lived through a period of incredible weather stability. In the far known and measured past, weather has been more extreme. Just that fact alone helps the huge economic expansion of post WW2. We had it good. Now we are getting a few extreme spikes. It will be hotter and colder, dryer and wetter going forward. But global temperature has stalled out, and a reversal is likely.
Another big thing that is barely on most peoples radar is the earths magnetic pole shift, I can't deal with that one today, but realize it could be a massive effect on earth weather.
Check out the charts and drop a comment.

No chart for sunspot activity?

Quote: "One of the possible explanations for a link between sunspots and weather is via cosmic rays. It is accepted that cosmic rays play a part in cloud formation by encouraging the nucleation of water droplets. It is also accepted that there is a negative correlation between sunspots and cosmic rays. Figure 5 demonstrates this link."
And amazingly, on Aug 1, 2014 when I published my proof that Global Warming is a scam, Suspicious Observers had a short comment on their daily video, and the statement that "there has been no warming for 17 years" and a link to a long video that goes deep into Global Warming scam. I haven't watched it yet, but here it is.
