Satellite And Balloon Measurements vs Surface Data

Ever since the general use of Weather Satellites in 1979, data from these remote measurements of the tropospheric temperatures, as well as older method temperature data from balloon-based radiosondes have been at variance (i.e. lower) with the measured surface surface temperatures, mostly generated by Phil Jones in the UK and in general use by the IPCC, let alone with the rate increase of temperature generated by the IPCCs computer simulations.

The satellite and balloon methodology has been attacked by a number of Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) proponents, most recently in three sets of papers in Science magazine and defended as rigorously by the originators of satellite sensing, Drs Roy Spencer and John Christy of the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

FRIENDS OF SCIENCE asked the members of its Scientific Advisory Board to give their opinions and former FoS Board member Albert Jacobs has summarised their comments.
