Forty years after two radio astronomers first heard a faint whisper from our own cosmic birth ... the WMAP image only describes a minuscule variation in temperature. Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman s1e4: What Happened Before the Beginning? Science 2010
NASA had another problem: and one is that the moon surface is totally inhospitable to man. If you do it in the dark, and that includes any part of the shadow of the space-craft itself, the temperatures go down to 250 degrees below zero. In the sun the temperatures go up to 250 degrees above zero. Paul R Renne, geochronologist
There’s no cooling systems on those rovers ... How did they maintain the internal temperature? Richplanet TV with Andrew Johnson checktheevidence.com, Showcase 2, Richard D Hall
To investigate the secrets of temperature: one degree may seem like the most basic of concept but actually the more you delve into it the deeper, the stranger, and the more surprising temperature becomes. Horizon: What is One Degree? Ben Miller reporting, BBC 2011
When we measure temperature, what does it mean? ibid.
As things get colder, they also get stranger ... It’s like a different world ... Everything is in a low energy state. ibid.
As the helium atoms turn into a super-fluid at that critical temperature their fundamental nature asserts itself. Instead of individual atoms bouncing around, the atoms move together as if they were of one mind. ibid.
As a super-fluid the liquid helium has no viscosity. ibid.
I’ve gone through the rabbit hole ... As temperature decreases, as we get closer and closer to absolute zero, we pass into a completely new world, the quantum world, and it’s baffling, and it’s weird. Temperature – the random thermal motion of molecules. ibid.
The Earth’s average temperature has already increased by 0.75 degrees in the last one hundred and fifty years. And it’s set to rise even further. ibid.
Through the 1980s the temperature of the planet kept on rising. Iain Stewart, Earth: Climate Wars: The Battle Begins, BBC 2008
They searched the world getting evidence of other proxies ... Today’s temperatures are easily the warmest in a thousand years ... The hockey stick. It became one of the most controversial graphs in history. Iain Stewart, Earth: Climate Wars: Fightback
A rise of three degrees is a nightmare scenario for us all. Iain Stewart & Kathy Sykes, Future Earth
The sheer volume of greenhouse gasses that could be released from the permafrost would likely push average temperatures even higher than three degrees. ibid.
If you look at a thousand years of temperature and compare it to a thousand years of CO2 you can see how closely they fit together. Al Gore, An Inconvenient Truth, 2006
When there is more carbon dioxide the temperature gets warmer because it traps more heat from the sun inside. ibid.
If you look at the ten hottest years ever measured in this atmospheric record, they’ve all occurred in the last fourteen years. And the hottest of all was 2005. ibid.
Soil evaporation increases dramatically with higher temperatures. ibid.
As temperatures increase, the oceans evaporate more moisture into the sky. Al Gore, An Inconvenient Sequel, 2017
The IPPC says that unless we reduce the rate of greenhouse gas emissions, the greenhouse effect will intensify and warm up our planet. Glaciers and polar ice-caps will begin to melt, rivers will burst their banks, and sea-levels will rise, the deserts will expand ... Global Warming: Doomsday Called Off, 2004
The temperature data from the ice-sheets reveal long periods with much higher temperatures than those we experience today. They tell a fascinating tale of natural temperature fluctuations in the northern hemisphere from times when man had no influence on the climate whatsoever. Other core samples from elsewhere in Greenland confirm that the Little Ice Age ended about a hundred and forty years ago at the coldest point in the last ten-thousand years. ibid.
Michael Mann’s hockey-stick graph is unusual and scientists not attached to the United Nations climate panel have found it hard to swallow. ibid.
So as with the sea-level, changes in the amount of sea-ice do not support the idea that the world is getting warmer ... There’s no convincing evidence of either a rise in temperature or an increase in sea level. The first pillar of the greenhouse theory – proof of global warming from the climate record – turns out to have no substance. Like the first pillar, the second pillar also relies on our past evidence of the climate but this time to support the claim that carbon dioxide causes an increase in temperature ... The climate record fails to prove that carbon dioxide causes temperature change. But if anything there is evidence to the contrary. The second pillar supporting the greenhouse effect turns out to be as unsubstantial as the first. The third pillar supporting the greenhouse effect is the climate models ... The third pillar supporting the greenhouse theory turns out to be as flimsy as the first two. So there’s only one remaining support for the greenhouse theory – the underlying physics. The greenhouse physics is supposed to show that carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, that it absorbs radiation reflected from the Earth’s surface, and in turn emits that radiation again ... Even the final pillar supporting the greenhouse effect – the underlying physics – turns out to be as insubstantial as the rest. Greenhouse Conspiracy, originally broadcast Australian TV @ 1990
The temperature causes CO2 to change. PSTV.tv – Global Warming or Global Governance?
Water vapour comprises approximately 97% of all greenhouse gasses; carbon dioxide comprises less than 2%. ibid.
There has been no statistical increase in the Earth’s temperature since 1998. ibid.
1934 not 1998 was the hottest year. ibid.
There is compelling evidence that many parts of Antarctica are getting colder. ibid.
The more sunspots the warmer the Earth’s temperature. ibid.
About five thousand years ago the world was much warmer than it is today. Professor Tim Ball
Darkness brings huge changes. In the Sahara the temperature can drop as much as thirty degrees during the night. David Attenborough, Planet Earth e5: Deserts, BBC 2006
Temperature control is something all reptiles must achieve. David Attenborough, Life on Earth VII: Victors of the Dry Land, BBC 1979
0.85 degrees: The Earth’s temperature has been rising in the last 130 years. Climate Change by Numbers, BBC 2015
We humans think and move like members of a herd in more ways than we might realise. Human Swarm, Channel 4 2013
Temperature can make us not as individuals but as a collective mass, a human swarm. ibid.
When the temperature drops by a few degrees our food consumption goes up. ibid.
If you go to a city like Atlanta or Washington DC you can find temperatures five, six degrees C and even more in the city centre from the surrounding countryside. John Christy
And that’s fundamentally what temperature is – it’s the measure that molecules are moving at. Dr Joanne Flanagan, Culham Centre For Fusion Energy
Temperature is a way of describing – we must know temperature accurately. We must know numbers accurately. Mike Pepper, Cavendish Institute
Between stars, between galaxies, in the vast majority of space, the temperature reads more than 450 degrees below zero. The Universe s7e4: Deep Freeze, History 2012
Different colours had different temperatures. Helen Czerski, Colour: The Spectrum of Science III: Beyond the Rainbow, BBC 2015
Tonight, the highest temperatures ever recorded in Britain. People making the most of the summer sun. But also an unprecedented red warning. So will extreme weather be the new normal? Tonight: Heatwave Britain: How Hot Will It Get? BBC 2022
