Temperature is NOT heat

0 Comments

William DiPuccio has an excellent article that is discussed in Climate Skeptic and originally referred from Watts Up With That.  He essentially is making the argument thant we spend a huge amount of time talking about temperature and what we really need to talk about is heat.  I tried to make this argument many months ago (although not as well as Mr. DiPuccio) in “Analysis that doesn’t matter” when I discussed the techniques of combining temperature data to find the “average” temperature.  I still contend that averaging of temperatures is mathematically and thermodynamically incorrect and that vector mathematics are required to solve the problem.

Watts Up With That reproduces Mr. DiPuccio’s thoughts as a guest post and Climate Skeptic discusses it in detail.  Jump over to those two sites and have a read.
