Global Warming Update: Data refinement applies to tropics

A reader writes:
Hey, Mr. Steele, I don't like how the New York Times
gets all Monday morning quarterbacky and says these
Alabama scientists, like they're some hicks, botched
their global warming study.
Well, it is not a botched study. It is a refinement of existing set of studies. New information that make the study more accurate. You can find details here.

Look at the graph on Climate Audit, and you can see the modest changes. As you read the details, the changes only apply to the tropics. “There was virtually no impact of this error outside of the tropics.” The New York Times would like you to believe it applies every where.

All the data shows is we are having a gradual warming. It does not confirm that it is human caused global warming. Remember the sun is warming Mars, Neptune's moons and Pluto's atmosphere. So, how can humans be causing gradual warming on the other planets in the solar system and not on the Earth. We are all in the same solar system.

If you disagree, show me where I have gone astray.

Thought that readers might like the link to the source article, which states that the data used by global warming skeptics who claimed the earth was not warming was flawed

Even the "gradual warming" cited by this laughably flawed study is very dangerous and has all sorts of ramifications. Remember the precautionary principle: Don't step in an open land mine field even if you think you can avoid the mines.
