The Mind of a Global Warming Chicken Little

BOULDER—A new analysis of satellite data collected since the late 1970s from the lowest few miles of the atmosphere indicates a global temperature rise of about one-third of a degree Fahrenheit between 1979 and 1999. The results are at odds with previous analyses that show virtually no warming in the satellite record over the 20-year period.

1/3rd of a degree over 20 years? How are the results at odds with the statement "virtually no warming"? I'd say that .016 degrees a year qualifies as "virtually no".

Wonder why they only pick that 20 years? Bet is that if they used the past 100 years, there would be 0.000 increase in temps.
