As part of its Terra-X series, ZDF German television presented a two-part documentary on January 11  and 18 on climate and human history.

2005 James Hansen: No Agreement On What Is “Surface Air Temperature”…Few Observed Data Filled In With “Guesses”

NASA has an interview with James Hansen (still) up at its site here. Here we see that “surface air temperature” (0 to 50 feet) is not even yet defined, let alone can it be determined. This does not only present lots of uncertainty in its determination, but also plenty of opportunity for measurement and interpretation mischief. […]
