Earth to Lovejoy: 0.9 C° in a century is not ‘huge’

«We’ve had a fluctuation in average temperature that’s just HUGE since 1880 – on the order of about 0.9 degrees Celsius. » – Professor Lovejoy, McGill University

0.9 degrees Celsius is “HUGE”?

Imagine a weather person forecasting, “Today’s temperature of 23°C (73.4°F) will be followed by a HUGE drop to 22.1°C (71.78°F) tonight!!!!”

An emergency room doctor blurting out, “The patients body temperature made a HUGE jump from the 37°C (98.6°F) to 37.9°C (100°F) !!!!!!!”

Because of my heat/AC settings, on any given day my living room temperature is anywhere between 21°C (70°F) and 24°C (75°F). Woah! More than THREE TIMES the HUGE change of 0.9°C.

Who would even notice a 0.9°C change of temperature in our bath water?

Perspective people. Perspective.

Here is what he is quoted as saying:
