The latest satellite temperature data for February show no movement from the 30-year average. The news is further evidence that global temperatures started to run out of steam nearly two decades ago. The highly accurate satellite measurements also reveal no global warming for the last 88 months.
The data is compiled by Dr. Roy Spencer from the University of Alabama, who was kicked off Google Adsense recently for publishing “unreliable and harmful claims”, e.g. the latest satellite data showing global warming has ground to a halt. The move demonetised Dr. Spencer’s monthly satellite update page by removing all Google-supplied advertising. Google says it will ban all sites that are sceptical of “well established scientific consensus”.
Dr. Spencer has been compiling satellite temperatures for 43 years and has received awards for his work from NASA and the American Meteorological Society. He is currently working with NASA on the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer flying on the Aqua satellite.
It is unsurprising that there are attempts to downplay or even ban the satellite work. Over the last 30 years, a massive climate change industry has grown up predicated on exaggerated and fanciful global heating claims, and the so-called climate emergency. Huge amounts of money have poured into universities, research facilities and green activist groups of every description. Hiding behind the mantra of ‘settled’ science and ‘scientific consensus’, there is an almost daily outpouring of disaster porn. The latest IPCC ‘Day After Tomorrow’ report, published this week, is just one example.
