Real Absolute Average Temperatures
Climate Science seems to have an unhealthy obsession with temperature anomalies. It is possible to read extensively about global warming, without ever seeing a real absolute temperature mentioned (e.g. 25 degrees Celsius). Why is this?
There is nothing wrong with temperature anomalies. For some things, temperature anomalies are the best thing to use. But temperature anomalies by themselves, do not tell the full story.
To calculate a temperature anomaly, the real absolute temperature is needed. So the real absolute temperatures are available. But climate scientists keep them a secret. Why is this?
Is a temperature anomaly of +2.0 degrees Celsius good or bad? Is it even possible to answer that question, without additional information?
Climate Science seems to be of the opinion that any increase in temperature, above some historical standard, is bad. The historical standard that is usually used, is pre-industrial times. This seems to be reasonable, until you realise that there is another name for pre-industrial times. It is also called the Little Ice Age. Is the Little Ice Age really what we want to use as the correct temperature of the Earth?
If the average temperature of a country is +4.0 degrees Celsius, is a +2.0 degrees Celsius temperature increase going to cause a catastrophe? Or would the citizens of the country welcome this small increase in temperature?
What if the average temperature of a country is +28.0 degrees Celsius. In this circumstance, is a +2.0 degrees Celsius temperature increase going to cause a catastrophe? Or would the citizens of the country welcome this small increase in temperature?
You need to know what the real absolute temperature is, in order to decide what the effect of an increase in temperature will be. But if climate scientists know what the real absolute temperatures are, they are not letting anybody else know. Why is this?
I have researched real absolute temperatures extensively. And if climate scientists are not going to tell you what they are, then I will. There are a number of different real absolute temperatures that are useful. The following are the types of real absolute temperature that I have researched:
- the average temperature
- the summer temperature
- the winter temperature
Looking at both the summer temperature, and the winter temperature, gives a good indication of the range of temperatures that a location experiences.
A temperature anomaly gives no indication of the range of temperatures that a location experiences.
In this article, I will display the first of the 3 types of absolute temperature, that I have studied. This is a map showing the real absolute AVERAGE temperature. The next 2 articles will display the other types of absolute temperature. The next article will display the map of the Northern Hemisphere Winter/Southern Hemisphere Summer. And the article after that, will display the map of the Northern Hemisphere Summer/Southern Hemisphere Winter.
By the time that you have seen all 3 maps, you will have a good idea of the real absolute temperatures, that every location on the Earth experiences.
The following map shows the real absolute average temperature, for every 5 x 5 latitude-longitude cell, that has at least one temperature station present. The entire 5 x 5 latitude-longitude cell will be coloured to show the average real absolute temperature, of all the temperature stations in that latitude-longitude cell. Cells with no temperature stations (e.g. the ocean), will be coloured grey. Remember, the colour will indicate the real absolute AVERAGE temperature for the whole year (i.e. it is an average of the summer, winter, autumn, and spring temperatures).

More interesting information:
1) The average temperature of the land (averaged by area, for 216 countries), is 15.6 degrees Celsius.
2) The average human lives at an average temperature of 19.7 degrees Celsius. Humans like warmth, and live in the warmer locations.
3) Look at the colour on the map for Kenya, in Africa. That is where humans evolved. We should be able to live at similar temperatures to Kenya.
To see this real absolute temperature information presented in different ways, see the following articles:
1) The average, summer, and winter, real absolute temperatures for 216 countries. Displays bar graphs, and tables of temperature and population data.
2) The average, summer, and winter, real absolute temperatures for 216 countries, combined with population data, and plotted in average real absolute temperature order.
