Lindzen compares the daily variation of temperature given in a local weather report with the variation of global mean temperature—which is represented by the thickness of the red line. The blue bars give the temperature range on a particular day. The dark grey shade gives the average range for that day of the year, while the light grey gives the range of extremes in the temperature record for that day.


One thought on “lindzenDailyLocalGlobalAnnualComparison

  1. This is what I’ve always known, spot temperatures are meaningless, hundreds of broken records are irrelevant. When the global average moves they have my attention, but the global temperature has risen .75c in the last century and I would consider small shifts as ”normal variation”.
