Hottest Year Ever : Second Coldest December On Record In England

December averaged -0.7C. The only colder year was 1890 at -0.8.

There might have been less UHI in 1890.

    So all that heating since the industrial revolution gone in one month…pufffffff gone.

  2. Paul H says:

    Just as well we have had global warming then. Else we would have been under glaciers by now.

  3. Mike Davis says:

    I do not recall providing that!!!!
    I blame Morgan in Sweden for bringing it up! 😉

  4. Layne Blanchard says:

    The UHI is probably 3 degrees, so they most likely beat the old record. When we get to the point that the Thames and the Hudson are freezing over, do you think anyone will listen up?

  5. Pangolin says:

    So, apparently the planet deniers live on starts somewhere east of Greenland and ends at the English Channel. That does put a definite crimp on the concept of global warming.

    If you don’t like the results redefine the terms eh?

    • Do you have difficulty reading maps?

    • Magnus says:

      Do you dislike “climate deniers” because of the information here? In that case: The argument here is global temperature figures from Met Office. It’s however unnecessary to comment this because everyone — except you? — can read this.

      Talk about redefine the terms… LOL

      Are the UAH satellite temperatures “global” enough for you?

      +0.62C in October
      +0.38C in November

      Daily December anomalies running 0.25C LOWER than November…

      30 years worth of “global warming” undone in the space of 8 short weeks.

      As you said yourself :

      “That does put a definite crimp on the concept of global warming.”

      • Magnus says:

        Isn’t daily UAH negative now? November month’s anomaly was was +038 C, but the drop between about the 23rd and 27th December was 0.56 degrees.

        http://motls.blogspot.com/2010/12/globe-cooled-by-056-c-in-four-days.html

        In that case we shal have an slmost -0.2 C anomaly, compared with UAH average since 1979. We’ll see where this will continue as the sun seems to take a pause.

        (Catastrophic AGW is just an example of very biased, bad politicized science, as well as its movement and discourse in social science (universities) politics and media is tyranny where you are fired if you slightly disagree. A situation not different from that in former Soviet Union? Pangolin may not be that intelligent, but if he/she is that kind of stupid comments against good scientific conclusions is a political — almost religious — struggle on the good side.)

        The daily anomaly figures have been close to 0.00 for most of the month :

        http://chartsgraphs.wordpress.com/2010/08/19/enhanced-uah-channel-5-temperature-anomaly-trend-chart/

        The final monthly figures seem to be routinely adjusted upwards by 0.15-0.20C, so a final anomaly figure of +0.15-0.20 would seem to be in order for December.

        We’ll know for sure in a few days.

      • Magnus says:

        UAH day-by-day anomaly has dropped. See my blog link, or this screenshot:

        December month global anomaly is mostly from a warm period (24 out of 30 days), so December global anomaly should be relatively high compared to actual temperature anomaly at the moment. A month of very cold global temperature (January) may be reported in the beginning of February — if this temperature anomaly continues.

        Unfortunately followers of scare mongering in the media in January will only report the fabulous Highest Temperature in History 2010 from GISS. One should recommend Steven Goddards site, and other good sites, to journalists.

        Figure just released : +0.18C

        Looks like I nailed it ! (:-

    the Gore effect…..

    CRU is in the middle of that LOL

  7. Andy Weiss says:

    If you add in the last week of November, it would probably shatter the record for that time period.

  8. jheath says:

    Taking a longer view the year 2010 is 97th coldest of the CET, and the last three years now show a cooling trend. For me it is the fifth coldest year in my life of 60 years. England is only a bit of the globe, but it does have the longest temperature record.

    My eye reading of Dr Spencer’s global temperature chart suggests that 2010 and 2009 should average out about the same globally so England is perhaps not typical but 2010 is not as hot as some would claim.
