Warming is +0.18°C (.32°F) decade
Last week, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released its monthly “State of the Climate Global Analysis” for January.
We see blowout warming in the satellite temperature record, which is so beloved of the anti-science crowd since they think — incorrectly — it doesn’t show warming. Note that in UAH, we crushed the previous record.
In NOAA’s own surface dataset, January is slightly less record-shattering:
The combined global land and ocean average surface temperature for January 2010 was 0.60°C (1.08°F) above the 20th century average of 12.0°C (53.6°F). This is the fourth warmest January on record.
As seems to be a pattern now, the record warmth seems to elude much of the East Coast, where most of the lawmakers and major media bloviate:
Hmm, could that be because New study finds the poor weather stations tend to have a slight COOL bias, not a warm one?
