Skeptics From Around the Globe

Bjarne Andresen, professor of physics Ørsted Laboratory -University of Copenhagen

“It is impossible to talk about a single temperature for something as complicated as the climate of Earth. A temperature can be defined only for a homogeneous system. Furthermore, the climate is not governed by a single temperature. Rather, differences of temperatures drive the processes and create the storms, sea currents, thunder, etc. which make up the climate.”......'All the standard arguments for global warming rely upon conventional “equilibrium” models of the atmosphere, all of which may be false.’

  1. You might be confusing climate with weather in some way. In the analysis of the global climate, the average global temperature is certainly an important factor. With respect to storms, hurricanes etc., this is observed under Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) and is largely determined by difference in temperatures, mostly between the poles and Equator.
    It would be prudent if you explained you statement in more details.
