Spencer: Global Urban Heat Island Effect Study – An Update

Spencer: Global Urban Heat Island Effect Study – An Update“. More tortured charts and explanations from Dr. Roy Spencer, merely producing a deeper hole. When he said “I don’t know the reason for this, but I suspect that a little thought from Anthony Watts, Joe D’Aleo & others will help figure it out.“, well… I realized that even by Anthony’s standards I’d wasted five minutes of my life.

Yes, Dr. Spencer’s charts have lines on them. What is lacking is an objective basis for the station pairings he has settled on. Or a cogent theory explaining them.

Dr. Spencer, you have jumped the shark.

  1. Nice to see someone making the effort to highlight the farce that is WUWT. Hope your site gets a bit of support.

    I’m enjoying Dr Spencers efforts to hide the increasingly obvious implications of his own work.

  2. The labels on Spencers’ charts are confusing. It looks as if he’s plotted population density against a change in temperature expressed as Urban Heat Island (UHI) warming. But he’s included areas with extremely low population densities right down to 3 people/sq km (obviously rural not urban) with a positive UHI warming. The text doesn’t make it any clearer. I cannot make sense of it at all but I’m probably missing something.

  3. Good stuff Ben.

    Have a read of the PDF, and have a read of The Cornwall Stewardship Agenda

    A Call to Truth, Prudence, and Protection of the Poor: An Evangelical Response to Global Warming Disturbing reading.
    It will be very interesting to see Roy’s evangelical response to new records in the UAH temps. I get the feeling he is the one tilting at windmills

  6. Keep up the deleting, keep it nice and cosy so no one can criticize your religion.
    Where’s God? Is Al hiding with him, keeping warm whilst the planet cools
