Fracking is literally digging the hole deeper. If you stop sucking so greedily on the Big Oil teat, the deep, hot abiotic oil seeps upward and replenishes automatically. But that doesn't help the next quarter and the year-on-year, now does it?

State of the Climate | Global Analysis - April 2013

Global Highlights
•The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for April 2013 was the 13th warmest on record, at 0.52C (0.94F) above the 20th century average of 13.7C (56.7F).
•The global land surface temperature was 0.71C (1.28F) above the 20th century average of 8.1C (46.5F), marking the 17th warmest April on record. For the ocean, the April global sea surface temperature was 0.44C (0.79F) above the 20th century average of 16.0C (60.9F), tying with 2001 and 2009 as the seventh warmest April on record.
•The combined global land and ocean average surface temperature for the January–April period (year-to-date) was 0.56C (1.01F) above the 20th century average of 12.6C (54.8F), tying with 2009 as the eighth warmest such period on record.


TSI Data

TSI averaged about 1361.5w/m^2

CO2 passed 400ppm

NOAA Paleoclimatology Program - IPCC AR4 2007 Chapter 6 Palaeoclimate Figure 6.10

They have data from 1000 AD to 1999 in ascii format, I am trying to use the data here to create my own climate model.

The first step I am undertaking is taking the minimum and maximum temperatures in regions to find the equilibrium points (where energy in= energy out)

We now have a lot of new data:

Quote:
This is incredibly important work because:

The Lake El'gygytgyn region was not glaciated during any of the ice ages. As a consequence, the >300m accumulated sequence of lake sediments represents a continuous, undisturbed sedimentary record going all the way back from the present to the aftermath of the impact.

The team succeeded in 2009 in extracting cores spanning this entire 3.6 million year period.

The oldest continuous ice core records to date extend 123,000 years in Greenland and 800,000 years in Antarctica: the Lake El'gygytgyn cores go way back beyond those times and provide an unprecedented view of the past climate of the Arctic.

Results show that during the Pleistocene (2.588 million - 11.7 thousand years ago), there were a number of super-interglacials - like the present period but much wetter and several degrees warmer in the Arctic, during which the Greenland and West Antarctic ice-sheets didn't just melt a bit. They disappeared.

The data coming from Lake El'gygytgyn strongly suggest that the Arctic climate is highly sensitive to small changes in forcing, warming much faster than the rest of the world in the phenomenon known as Arctic Amplification. In recent years, Arctic Amplification has emerged as a strong modern-day climate signal. To cite but one example, the sea-ice response has been of far greater magnitude than model-based forecasts projected. Now, the past is giving a similar narrative, and understanding the climate of the past gives us our best chance of understanding the climate of the future.
This part is confirmed by physics, the energy radiated by a body is

e*0.000000056704*T^4

Where e is the emissivity with earth radiating at 90% at the temperatures observed.
0.000000056704 is a constant
and T is the temperature in Kelvin.

With the amount of energy radiated dependent on T^4 lower temperatures will be more sensitive to changes in input over higher temperatures.

Still happy to take that bet on the Arctic being ice free this summer...
