Went back and checked just to jog my memory.

Nadir day was September 08, 2016: 400.29 ppm.



Now keep in mind, Nadir day can fall anywhere between September 1 and October 14 because of the vagaries of fall weather. A warm wet fall will drive numbers to bottom late, a cool dry fall will cause numbers to bottom early IIRC

We never got as low as I was hoping for this fall, and the recovery from the El Nino of 15-16 has not shown up much if at all. At these rates I believe we will hit 450 ppmv much more quickly than most people believe.

September 07: Unavailable
September 06: 404.16 ppm
September 05: 403.47 ppm
September 04: 404.01 ppm
September 03: 404.03 ppm

A higher concentration of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere would aid photosynthesis, which in turn contributes to increased plant growth. This correlates to a greater volume of food production and better quality food. Studies indicate that crops would utilize water more efficiently, requiring less water. And colder areas along the farm belt will experience longer growing seasons.

Sorry folks, somehow I forgot to post last weekends data and it has aged off the system. We are closer to 403 ppmv than I expected this fall, which is a good thing. Ironic though it may be every little delay in the increase does make me slightly more cheerful.

Yeah, two weeks of July weather in my parts but in September. But weather is not climate. It is climate since climate defines the manifold on which all weather states reside.

I can see how people living in the arid subtropics may to not see the clear signs of global warming that are apparent poleward of 40 degrees latitude. This is a common flaw in thinking when it comes to global warming. A lot of people think that global warming is supposed to show up locally to their desired amount before they may consider believing it. Don't worry your smug, delusional minds, eventually your local weather will be reflecting the change.

Ok, that was a bunch of bizarre nonsense beyond belief. Your view apparently is that everyone needs to "believe" regardless of what is happening. Apparently, the models and projections are so good that observations of what is actually happening that are contradictory to past projections should be ignored? Let's ignore all observation science and just jump on the bandwagon of modeled projections? :roll:

Jesus wept.

Why would you want to do that?

Observational data on global temperature provides the key bit of evidence that demonstrates that increasing CO2 in the atmosphere is causing global warming.

If the planet wasn't warming so dramatically then the climate change deniers might have a point. But the observational data showing increasing global warming matches quite well with climate models predicting global warming.

Cheers!

I hate to break it to you but humans don't live in the mid-troposphere.

Humans live down here on the surface of the earth where it is getting progressively warmer.

The model runs are representations of the temperatures at elevations where the satellite and balloon data are acquired. Explained by Christy.
It is a one to one comparison.

Obviously Rockdoc, should stick to the Oil Industry where he can make some sound claims as opposed to climate change.

Hey dipshit....I posted a chart from John Christy who is a very well known and respected climate scientist and an expert in satellite-based temperature analysis. It is not my analysis, it is his. I suspect, however, he knows a bit more about the subject matter than you do.

Meanwhile, in the real world, Antarctica has seen virtually no overall increase in temperature during the instrumental record. A small area in the peninsula saw warming up to 1997 after which all surface stations have shown general cooling. Many surface stations in Antarctica show a total cooling trend over the entire instrumental record and satellite data shows no warming continent-wide. Proxy data for Antarctica indicates an overall cooling trend in the past 1900 years. This has all been discussed at length in the Antarctic threads over the past number of years. Further discussion should move there.
