How often do we hear that same old refrain "It is not possible to measure the temperature of the Earth" without any evidence to support that assertion?

Yet many different groups of scientists manage to do it every month and every year. Odd that someone, who has no expertise in this area and can provide nothing to back up their claim, can make such a definitive statement that is apparently obvious to them but not the experts in the field. It reeks of hubris.

Well, there are many papers published on how global temperatures are measured. But scientific papers are full of complicated science which these people don't apparently understand (or don't want to) so it is futile to reference them.

However, I have found a relatively simple explanation that might help them understand more about the process. It is from the American Chemical Society (so not a group that has a dog in this fight so cant be legitimately accused of bias) .... enjoy:

How often do we find warmizombies who will accurately express the rpoblems with their WACKY religious dogma?

Correct. Never.

The correct refrain is "It is not possible to measure the average global temperature of the earth to any usable margin of error."

The red herring of claims of the impossible nature of merely measuring the temperature of the earth is repeated by warmizombies as a fully intentional mischaracterization of opposing views, so that the assigned mischaracterization can be easily attacked.

I can go outside right now with a standard thermometer, read it and declare that to be the temperature of the earth. In fact, I can go outside without any thermometer, breathe in the air and hazard a guesstimate of the earth's "average temperature." Warmizombies take that one step further. They look at a tree ring from one particular tree and declare the earth's average temperature for an entire year more than two centuries ago! It may sound WACKY but they just call the tree ring a "proxy" and presume that that mere declaration transforms their pure fabrication into actual knowledge.

However, if the correct concern were to be addressed, i.e. "It is not possible to measure the average global temperature of the earth to any usable margin of error" then the warmizombie slinks silently back into his hole ... or intentionally conflates "accuracy," "margin of error" and "manufacturing tolerance" in order to disrupt the conversation.

Odd that someone, who has no expertise in statistics and who is completely scientifically illiterate will nonetheless make such a definitive statement that is apparently obvious to them but not the experts in the field. It reeks of hubris.

There are no publications explaining how to practicably calculate the earth's average global temperature to within any usable margin of error, because humanity does not yet have the means.

Just for grits and shins, could you give me an example of this "complicated science" that is not mere mathematical gibberish that I apparently don't understand? I'm genuinely curious.

Great article DRKTS

I think an important base line to establish is that to "know" something like say the temperature of the atmosphere outside a Venera probe landing on Venus, means to have a margin of error and a probability (confidence level) that the true value is within a margin of error.
Here you can see the dashed lines identifying that:


Recently it's come to light that ITN, IBD and GFM don't believe there is such a thing as a confidence level or a margin of error in measurement (which is quite amazing) see here: link

The only intelligent rejection of a determination based on measuring would be to show that the margin of error exceeds the value which one is trying to identify. So for example if the margin of error on the mean temp on Earth was +/-5C then a 0.5C change can't been "confidently" shown. I'm posting this over from the 1998 thread:
The margin of error we are give is:
Explained here
https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/monitoring-references/faq/global-precision.php
"Scientists, statisticians and mathematicians have several terms for this concept, such as "precision", "margin of error" or "confidence interval"." The default is 95% which is twice the standard error in statistics.
Example here:
https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/summary-info/global/201407
"The margin of error associated with this temperature is ±0.23°F (0.13°C)."
So they are claiming a margin of error of +/-0.13C
(note that there are reputable scientists that dispute this, notably Pat Franks)

Correct, given the specific context of measuring (determining the here and now). Within an entirely different context of say, engineering (e.g. quality engineering), that endeavors to design a future outcome, then "confidence level" applies ... not only for the final result but for each component. In fact, component-level confidence guides what is acceptable and what trade-offs will be made in the final system/product. This is why so much effort is placed on component testing, and only the tolerances of the testing equipment are considered, by the way. There is no "confidence level" involved in component testing.

Trivia Question: What is the standard "confidence level" required of a scientific experiment?

Maybe you should tell ITN that:

Into the Night is saying the same thing. He considers an inability to measure within a usable margin of error equivalent to being unable to measure. What is the point of measuring? To determine the measurement sufficient to make a decision or to take an action. If something cannot be measured sufficiently to support a decision or an action then it effectively cannot be measured.

.. and you understand this. Of course you are playing your dishonest little games of "he said X" while stripping away all context.

tgoebbles wrote: So what margin do you come up with IBD and how do you justify it?

You recently expressed to gfm7175 that you understand all of these concepts that you are intentionally misconstruing; that you learned them in highschool and that you are essentially just wasting everyone's time.

So, what's obviously wrong with your question? You and I both know so just explain to the board.

Nope. You cited the Quality Engineer's exam. You specifically referenced quality engineering and nothing about measuring.

You clearly don't understand what "engineering" means.

You should be embarrassed that I'm the first person to teach you that measuring devices and calibration equipment are engineered as well. They are engineered by quality engineers because the equipment pertains to metrology and calibration. If it were merely electronic equipment then that would be handled by an electrical engineer.

I'm starting to doub that you learned all the stuff you claim you learned in highschool.

Define "usable margin of error" a meaningless statement unless you define what you are using if for.

RQAA. There are simply not enough thermometers. There are nowhere near enough thermometers. Thermometers that do exist are not equally spaced either, or read at the same time. Grouping effects are significant. Time is significant. A variance of 20 deg F/mile is not out of line. It has often been observed. The resulting margin of error is greater than the highest and lowest temperatures ever recorded at any weather station.

Correct. Never.

The correct refrain is "It is not possible to measure the average global temperature of the earth to any usable margin of error."

The red herring of claims of the impossible nature of merely measuring the temperature of the earth is repeated by warmizombies as a fully intentional mischaracterization of opposing views, so that the assigned mischaracterization can be easily attacked.

I can go outside right now with a standard thermometer, read it and declare that to be the temperature of the earth. In fact, I can go outside without any thermometer, breathe in the air and hazard a guesstimate of the earth's "average temperature." Warmizombies take that one step further. They look at a tree ring from one particular tree and declare the earth's average temperature for an entire year more than two centuries ago! It may sound WACKY but they just call the tree ring a "proxy" and presume that that mere declaration transforms their pure fabrication into actual knowledge.

I will educate you on this point so pay attention.

The person seeking the value determines the acceptable margin of error. I don't define it. You don't define it. The person seeking the temperature makes that determination. However, the entire reason for seeking say, a temperature value, exists because of some need for that information, i.e. the purpose. The purpose is what demands a specific margin of error and the person desiring a value establishes the required margin of error as the target ... which then determines requirements for the collection method from which a data collection plan is devised, i.e. the data collection plan is devised such that the resulting value conforms to the required margin of error.

In the case of the earth, there are no purposes that can benefit from an earth's temperature at the very large margin of error to which humanity is limited.

Now, if you think I'm mistaken, then show me to be mistaken.

It's not even cooked data. It's not data at all. The numbers that both agencies are reporting are the result of an egregious math error. They continue to report it because both agencies are pushing for the whole Global Warming religion and have for a long time.

NASA, which uses the larger number of thermometers (about 7500 across the world), means there is one thermometer for an area the size of Virginia at best. With a variance of 20 deg F per mile, such a low number of thermometers is utterly useless, even if they WERE all spaced uniformly (which they aren't), and read at the same time (which they aren't) or by the same agency (which they aren't). The margin of error is greater than the spread between the highest and lower temperatures ever recorded at any weather station.

In mathematical terms, then, NASA is guessing. NOAA is even worse.

The data define the range of uncertainty through statistical analysis and error propagation through each step of the calculation.

The resulting uncertainty on the quantity being measured is defined as being useful depending on the purpose of the analysis.

A result that has larger uncertainty than the value can be useful as it can provide an upper or lower limit on the quantity and if that is all that is needed. I published a paper in Nature (my first paper ever) on the upper limit of the X-ray emissions from Lambda Scorpius showing that it was not a black hole, as some had claimed.

Raw data is useless as as source of information. It only provides one source of uncertainty - the statistical error on the measurement. There are many other factors that need to be considered going from raw data to a actual measurement (systematic errors, calibration errors, intercalibration errors if using more than one instrument, sampling errors, number of measurements, and so on). That is why you have to read and understand the papers that detail what the analysis involves.

Apparently you have done neither.

It's not error propagation. It is your assumed error being applied as a coefficient in the series. It merely is a factor in each term, it is not "propagating."

DRKTS wrote: The resulting uncertainty on the quantity being measured is defined as being useful depending on the purpose of the analysis.

Well, it's the purpose that determines the requirement in the first place. The analysis merely determines whether the data meet that requirement. If the analysis determines that the margin of error meets the requirement THEN the margin of error is determined to be usable for that purpose. If not then new data must be collected and possibly the data collection plan needs to be reworked.

DRKTS wrote: Raw data is useless as as source of information.

Stupid comment. Raw data is all that matters and is absolutely required to be presented for public scrutiny. He who will not publish his raw data is hiding something and is lying.

DRKTS wrote: That is why you have to read and understand the papers that detail what the analysis involves.

Nope. I am quite capable of performing my own analysis and frankly, I don't trust anyone else. I take the science approach and presume all papers got it wrong until I verify that they got it right ... so give me the raw data and only the raw data. Doctored, fudged, tweaked, weighted, cooked, altered and/or modified data is discarded. I don't need it.


Do you publish all of your raw data along with your papers?

I'm just curious. When they stuck a thermometer in your mouth and then on your forehead, did you tell them they couldn't know your body temperature until they took it rectally? There's also your arm pits which I guess would be next, right? And then there's the urethra tube and your ear canals. I think with you, you would want them to take the temperature in every orifice you have.
And then there's the probe they could put inside of you, a thin needle really.
That does seem to be your argument. I mean, even a thermal image will show varying temperatures so we can't really tell if someone has a fever, can we? And yet that is a common symptom of an infection. But we can't know that.

How many is enough?

Also be sure to include that it's enough for what MARGIN OF ERROR at what CONFIDENCE LEVEL ?

You're simply saying it. You're not Harry Potter. Just saying you don't want something to be true won't change anything. Let's see your calculation on this.

And what is that? What is "large"? More than 1, 10, 100, is it more than 1000 degrees? We both know that you haven't bothered to do any work on this yet you assert your "answer", which is based on your gut feeling, is right.

Excellent point! Any explanation from team denial on how that could happen? Other than "fudging the numbers" it clearly indicates accuracy.

Well said. This is true of Venus showing that most of the ITN/IBD claims made here are false. Also we know that the equilibrium temp for Earth would have the planet a frozen ball. We don't even need a thermometer to know that didn't happen.

DRKTS wrote:Raw data is useless as as source of information. It only provides one source of uncertainty - the statistical error on the measurement.
Also well said. You're forgetting why it's SO valuable to ITN/IBD: because there is no reason to put it online it allows them to disqualify everything for lack of having it.

WOW! Hey DRKTS did you know you can simply declare your own margin of error? You mean after you rub the lamp and the genie comes out right ITN?
A margin of error is ALWAYS determined by circumstances/results, ALWAYS. You can decide where to set your confidence level (90%,95% ect) but aside from it being a goal, the margin of error(the amount of random sampling error in the results) is entirely beyond human declarations. It seem abundantly clear that either ITN if full of it about building instrumentation or he doesn't even understand his own field.

So you DON'T know what "METROLOGY" is. OK I'll help you out: it's the scientific study of measurement.

Don't think I'm not noticing you doubling down on stupid. We will have a blast on this, I guarantee.

Have you learned "standard deviation" yet? Oh, as a special treat I will give you a hint about the basic statistical math you will be doing to verify for yourself the "hundreds of millions" or "billions" figure you will need to achieve a usable margin of error. Are you ready? Drum roll please ...

That's exactly why warmizombies never want me to go. They know they'll hear things they cannot explain with their WACKY dogma.

Did you try to sneak another subjunctive by us? There are no "could'a-would'a-should'a"s in science.

Also, we just had this conversation about grill presses. Has your Alzheimer's kicked in on that already?

Sure. Let's compute the margin of error on "The Climate." Post here in this thread a valid "Climate" dataset. Don't bother with any weather data; just focus on Climate data.

Yes, everyone declares his/her own target, determined by some original requirement for doing the measuring in the first place.

How shall we celebrate this apparently great news (news to you at least)?

This is of no value without an application/purpose for which those limits add value ... and there happen to be none.

Here's how you can verify. We currently have an upper limit, i.e. the hottest temperature of the sun. We have a lower limit, i.e. absolute zero.

So you are happy, yes?

What? It's not useful you say? How can that be? You just finished insisting that it is useful as long as there is an upper and lower limit?

Of course, the upper and lower limit need to be such that they are usable to whatever application you are working.

IBD you said a whole lot of nothing with a very long post. I can't make you debate.

The equilibrium temp of Earth is calculated at −18 °C; −1 °F if you accept the estimate for the emissivity of Earth. But we've been over all of that before.

IBdaMann wrote:What specific occurrence are you now denying occurred?
The ground level of Earth having a mean of -18C.

That was the only coherent question I spotted in your post.

IBdaMann wrote:

This is simply dead wrong. A margin of error is determined by the data. You can have a goal to get enough data to change the margin but the margin is not "declared" it is calculated.
"The margin of error is a statistic expressing the amount of random sampling error in the results" wikipedia

DRKTS gave you an example. I've given you another with VENUS having temperatures well beyond the most extreme margin of error demonstrating that the ground level of a planet can exceed it's equilibrium temp.

The upper limit of the Sun's energy for a planet is not the temp on the surface of the sun it is the radiance at that distance. But you know that.
