NOAA STUDY FINDS NO TRENDS


Item #d89mar12

Analysis of data from over 6,000 locations in the contiguous United States revealed no significant trends in average annual temperature or precipitation from 1895 to 1987. (See Kirby et al., PROF. PUBS./OF GEN. INTEREST, this Global Climate Change Digest issue--Mar. 1989.) According to a New York Times article (pp. A1, A14, Jan. 26, 1989), co-author Kirby Hanson of NOAA called for caution interpreting such results which in no way contradict recent findings of other scientists, and suggested that any global warming by the greenhouse effect could have been countered by a yet unidentified effect.
