    Some warmth for those feeling the cold...

    Global Temperature Trend Upate: December 2010 - Warmest Year Or Not?

    Ronald Bailey | January 6, 2011

    Every month University of Alabama in Huntsville climatologists John Christy and Roy Spencer report the latest global temperature trends from satellite data. Below are the newest data updated through December, 2010. Last year finishes in a statistical tie with 1998 as the warmest year in the past 32 years. As Spencer notes: 1998 (+0.424 deg. C) barely edged out 2010 (+0.411 deg. C), but the difference (0.013 deg. C) is nowhere near statistically significant.

    I don't think that chart means what you think it means, TNO.

    I don't think he knows what it means period. He posted it because it looks cool with all the pointy lines and all.

    I don't think that chart is the best choice for proving your point, if you have a point.

    I didn't think I was being cryptic. The title of the article asks a question and the chart answers it. What is the problem? Does information about temperature trends not belong at the CU Weather Channel?

    So you are beginning to question your faith?

    Okay, you win. if that chart is accurate, it looks like 2010 had the second highest annual average satellite measured temperature of the lower atmosphere in the last 32 years. Congrats, you've done it. You've proven the left's entire global warming position is true.

    The global temperature average of any given year neither proves nor disproves the global warming position. I offer this thread merely as a data point.

    And prior to that 32 years? Kind of sounds like the temperature on Earth fluctuates up and down giving us warmer periods and cooler periods. You know, sort of like it's been doing for millions of years?
