NOAA STUDY FINDS NO TRENDS
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.
