When we discuss satellite temperature measurements, we need to remember that it is usually lower troposphere we are talking about, TLT (Temperature Lower Troposphere). This covers the atmosphere from the surface up to around 10000 feet.
But the middle troposphere is just as important. This is the layer that covers from around 10000 to 30000 feet, as NOAA explains.
As NASA confirmed a few years ago, when analysing surface temperatures:
The measurements are surprising, because computer simulations of the world’s climate predict that the two lowest layers of the atmosphere — which together form the “troposphere” — should be warming faster than the Earth’s surface.
And if we check out RSS, we find that the temperature pause is obviously apparent in the TMT, or middle troposphere, just as it is in the TLT.
We know that Roy Spencer and John Christy of UAH are constantly vilified…
