Recent demonstrations by school children at the office of Senator Feinstein and elsewhere indicate a perceived concern over what they have apparently been told is severe climate change. But how much climate change has actually taken place?

Articles and op-eds in the past year disclosed two different, but small, increases in global temperature: 0.5 Celsius (0.9 Fahrenheit) for the 30 years ending in 1945 as related by Prof. Fred Singer, and 1.5 F over the past 150 years attributed to NOAA. Disregarding for the moment that these are modestly inconsistent numbers, disregarding also the accuracy and resolution of the historical record of temperatures, both of the reported figures are very small compared with total temperature, which begins at absolute zero.
