Correlation Between Solar Activity and Global Temperature

A couple of days ago, I received feedback from a reader who wanted to use our “Correlation Between Solar Activity and Global Temperature” animated graphic in his classes on Meteorology. “Professor Bob” who teaches at a community college in Virginia Beach, VA, is a rare find in academia these days. He shares our skepticism of the whole “Climate Change” hype. How refreshing is that?

The graphic, embedded at the right, originally appeared in a post we wrote back in August of 2006, “Correlating Solar Activity to Global Climate.” The post dealt with observations of sunspot activity and global temperature from 1600 to 1998 and correlated the two together. The graphic is an animated visual summary of the correlation between solar activity and global temperature.

Since the Professor wanted to include the graphic in a Microsoft Powerpoint presentation, I did some research on linking Flash™ to the presentation. I found some pretty good support from Microsoft on how to link to the graphic. I tried it here, saw that it worked, and sent the information to Bob. He emailed me this morning to say he had succeeded in getting the link to work at his end.

The whole climate scam, of course, is aimed at higher taxes on anything that emits CO2. That’s why Al Gore, most Democrats and the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University in the U.K. have been lying about the temperature figures ever since they started to decline after 1998. We intend to continue debunking the scam as long as we’re able.

Congratulations to Professor Bob for getting the thing working, and just as importantly, for passing the information along to his Meteorology Students.

    Very, very nice. It only stands to reason that the biggest freakin’ furnace in the solar system (and the only source of heat) would determine what kind of weather we have.

    Here’s a video of a Piers Corbyn interview, wherein he claimed he had predicted the recent hot weather in Russia and heavy rain in Pakistan, which weather patterns occurred 132 years ago as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWZEem_LQc0

    Liberal Wikipedia doesn’t treat Dr. Corbyn very well. However, he makes money predicting weather for insurance companies.

    Thanks for the link to Dr. Corbyn, Tom. Wikipedia is notorious for slanting politics to the left.

    Nice animated graphic! My British buddy who had better science in school also remarked on sunspot activity - something that was taught in school as a basis for understanding weather, and the Brits are all about weather.

    Thanks, DirtCrashr!

    Given that the Brits pioneered much of modern meteorology, it’s ironic that the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit is responsible for most of the global warming lies.
