    Hey, don’t start looking up data. Data is not relevant in what is happening now in global warming.

    ;o)

    Steven:
    Unless it changed recently the meteorological year is Dec through Nov as the use the meteorological seasons starting with winter.
    I agree with your conclusions in principle but wanted to bring that up.
    The other thing is the surface temperature record is FUBAR to use a mild description.
    Land surface temperatures can be off by more than 5C either way, but primarily a warm bias. The sea surface temperature is a joke at best and should be discarded.
    Anecdotal evidence shows a possibility that the 30s were warmer globally. Other than that there is not enough precision to make any other claims.

    • NCDC considers the year to be January-December

      • Mike Davis says:

        I have seen it both ways and it gets convoluted trying to keep track of the players and the rules of the game which are always changing. It is sort of like turning on a baseball game and by the third inning you are watching Hockey. Then before the game is over you are watching soccer or a marathon.

    And so many in the last decade.

    Oh hang on, US only? Not even global?

    Defeated by the cherries again!

    common steve, you can’t just plot actual data.

    first you have to add value,

    then adjust it,

    then homogenise it.

    your nifty algorithm to do all this then gives you…

    “Warmest Year EVAH!”

    everytime!

  5. Ken Johnsson says:

    And this is the U.S. I believe the latest data shows worldwide temperatures for January through September were either the hottest on record or matched the hottest on record.

    • Mike Davis says:

      That depends on your source for the information! It also depends on their ability to adjust historic records to provide desired results.
