Some see an interesting mathematical problem, some others see proof of obfuscation.



Or is it that I am mean? :twisted:

So you didn't watch the video. Or if you did, you didn't understand it at all.

Or perhaps you can explain why the latter example gives better global mean in the light that the in the Arctic the temperature rise has been double in comparison to lower latitudes. ;)

Try.

Anthropoid is correct.

A better question is what does the "weighted mean" have to do with global surface temperatures. The key here isn't the "mean" it's the other things being done to the data prior to the calculation of the mean.

Friend of mine on survey found a rattlesnake all stretched out on the ground, warming itself up. He avoided it. The thing is the snake was lying on the ground, which is in a sense the surface of the globe. The snake was... wait for it.... "global warming."

Dang, I have influence.

In a very recent past you supported the the idea of the anthropogenic global warming. Now you seem to have changed your mind. Is it because your president Trump who has told with his infinite wisdom that global warming is just Chinese hoax? Or is it that you hate me and because of that you take diametrically opposite positions that I might hold?

I hope that it is the latter. :?

Sometimes a joke is just a joke, pendejo.

Global warming remains real and CO2 forcing continues to drive it.

"Weighted mean" is not what most people mean when they say "arithmetic mean."

No.

No to what?

1) You didn't watch the video.
2) You didn't understand what the video was all about.
3) You don't want to share your wisdom, that would be pearls to the pig(s).

Or do I make a poll about this. And have a special doughnut option especially to ridiculate you?

Jou.
