Curry versus Tamino


.

I don’t have time for a full article about this debate now. I don’t even know the exact details (but that has never stopped me from giving my opinion).

The debate seems to be about the size of the Early 20th Century Warming, compared to the Late 20th Century Warming.

By my reckoning, the Early 20th Century Warming was about 0.30 degrees Celsius.

The Late 20th Century Warming was about 0.77 degrees Celsius.

So the Late 20th Century Warming was about 2.5 times bigger than the Early 20th Century Warming.

But before Tamino begins celebrating, he should think about this.

The Early 20th Century Warming took place over about 30 years.

The Late 20th Century Warming took place over about 50 years.

So the warming rates, were approximately equal.

Did Judith Curry say whether she was talking about “temperature change” size, or “warming rate” size?

Because a case can be made for the claim that the warming rate of the Early 20th Century Warming, was of a similar size to the warming rate of the Late 20th Century Warming.
