Chart of the Day: RSS finds no global warming for 17 years and 10 months...

How many years will it take before the "warmists" cry uncle?

Discovering that CO2 change and therefore human activity does not cause global warming is a start. But this leaves the question of what actually does drive average global temperature change.

Two primary drivers of average global temperature have been identified. They very accurately explain the reported up and down measurements since before 1900 with R2>0.9 (correlation coefficient = 0.95) and provide credible estimates back to the low temperatures of the Little Ice Age (1610).

The influence of CO2 change is insignificant.
Coefficient of determination, R2 = 0.9049 considering only sunspots and ocean cycles.
R2 = 0.9061 considering sunspots, ocean cycles and CO2 change.

The calculations use data since before 1900 which are publicly available.

The coefficients of determination are a measure of how accurately the calculated average global temperatures compare with measured.

Everything not explicitly considered (such as the 0.09 K s.d. random uncertainty in reported annual measured temperature anomalies, aerosols, CO2, other non-condensing ghg, volcanoes, ice change, etc.) must find room in the unexplained 9.51%.

The tiny difference in R2, whether considering CO2 or not, demonstrates that CO2 change has no significant effect on climate.
