2005 is the hottest year ever?
Yes, according to U.K. scientists 2005 was the warmest year since the 1860's when temperature records started being kept. Of course the studies authors say this is more evidence of human-induced global warming. Really? Let me get this straight, first you're saying 2005 was 0.65 C above the average from 1961 to 1990 which represents the baseline. And you say your calculations on that have an error of 0.1 C. And your baseline time window is only 0.00000058% of the earth's approximate 5 billion year history, but you're claiming only a 15% error rate? Ya, right! This is a joke. This is simply a miniscule sampling of surface temperature with nothing to connect human produced gas emissions to that temperature. Scientists and meteorologist have already come out saying that our unusual global hurricane season is part of a normal cycle. Whose to say that we aren't in a normal temperature cycle given the base line is only 29 years for christ sake! Even when global warming studies do talk about human produced gas and particulate emissions they almost never compare those to naturally occurring carbon particulate and various gas emissions from say volcanoes (annually the volcanoes beat out man each year).
