The Wall Street Journal article “Global Temperatures: All Over the
Map ” of Saturday 5 November opens “Taking the Earth's temperature requires more than lots of thermometers. It also relies on surveying tools, satellites—and confidence in statistical models used to put the numbers together.”
This is the first of seven references in the article to “models” or
“statistical models”, a fundamental tool of the global warmists.
Not mentioned is the 4.5 billion year age of the planet which, if
plugged into a statistical model of an 80 year human lifetime shows
one Earth year being 0.562 seconds of that life span, meaning humans first appeared in our model earth 39 days ago; Earliest known use of charcoal (carbon) by humans, for the reduction of copper, zinc and tin ores, was 54 minutes ago to our 80-year-old. Humans had no idea of measuring temperature before Galileo's 1593 invention of the thermometer , 4 minutes ago to our senior citizen. Discovery of carbon dioxide in 1630? 3 minutes 30 seconds ago.
If you took our geezer's blood pressure as 130/70, then took it again 5 minutes later and got 135 over 75, would you start making funeral arrangements?"
