Updated global warming numbers

JunkScience has updated the Global Warming at a Glance page. Please note the excellent comparitive graphics and the authors notes on scale distortion. Look at the long term changes in in the 1600s and 1700s in the Hadley graphics on temperature changes in central England, from the period 1695 through 1733, when annual mean temperatures rose from 7.25 °C to 10.47 °C. That is +3.22 °C in less than 40 years, all without a major rise in CO2. Just imagine the pandemonium if that happened today! Our state legislature and Governor went nuts when the temperature when up a scant 0.6°C. in 100 years. Hummm.

The problem is that this warming won't go away from natural fluctuations. Every year, it will get reliably worse. And, as you yourself indicated, pick any two years to make a point and you get a problem. But if you graph the data, the global warming conclusion is simply the only scientifically valid one, period.
