Abstract

Moving generational trends in global mean temperature anomalies and moving generational average fossil fuel emissions for the study period 1850-2015 do not show a statistically significant detrended correlation that can be interpreted in terms of the theory of anthropogenic global warming which implies a measurable effect of emissions on temperature trends. The findings are consistent with prior results in which a decadal moving window was used.
