Phil Jones New Global Temperature Calculations
The case for man-made global warming is more compelling than ever, according to the scientist who was at the centre of the controversy over climate-change statistics two years ago.
In a rare interview, Professor Phil Jones, who has been reinstated as director of the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, told The Times that a major reanalysis of the unit’s global climate records had strengthened the evidence for warming since industrialisation.....
The new land temperature records due to be published next year reveal that average temperatures in the northern hemisphere were about 0.1C warmer during the past decade relative to pre-industrial times than had previously been estimated.
“The more science we carry out, the stronger and clearer the evidence for climate change is becoming,” he said.
The stronger warming trend was revealed by the inclusion of previously unavailable data from hundreds of additional weather stations in Russia, Canada and other Arctic regions.....
The new land-based record has been combined with a revised sea surface temperature record from the Met Office and has been submitted for publication to the Journal of Geophysical Research and is likely to form part of the next report by the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change, due to be published in 2013.
