Re: My Children's Children could see 2110

We've forgotten what the Iroquois knew for hundreds of years before there was a United States, and still understand.

How did that work out for them?

Re: What are the satellites actually doing?

It's certainly better than the satellite data - better documented, better maintained, and with more equipment and stations.

Re: What are the satellites actually doing?

However... at least with GISS and BEST, you can still find their methodology, notes, data, and code online. You get none of that for Spencer's UAH data set. It's a black box. It's not science; not until he publishes his methodology.

Re: What are the satellites actually doing?

Well, it would help, at least, if Spencer released the data and methodology, like we have for the other temperature series. Just saying "here's my new results" without telling us how you got them... that's not really science.

Re: 3.8MW commercial UK rooftop solar
