NOAA Releases New Warming Data - Deniers Flummoxed, Again

Here's the skinny from the National Climate Data Center of the U.S. National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration.  It's just boring data but it goes to refute the claim that global warming has magically stopped.

  • The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for June 2013 tied with 2006 as the fifth highest on record, at 0.64°C (1.15°F) above the 20th century average of 15.5°C (59.9°F).
  • The global land surface temperature was 1.05°C (1.89°F) above the 20th century average of 13.3°C (55.9°F), marking the third warmest June on record. For the ocean, the June global sea surface temperature was 0.48°C (0.86°F) above the 20th century average of 16.4°C (61.5°F), the 10th warmest June on record.
  • The combined global land and ocean average surface temperature for the January–June period (year-to-date) was 0.59°C (1.06°F) above the 20th century average of 13.5°C (56.3°F), tying with 2003 as the seventh warmest such period on record.

The data keeps piling up, Mound. And folks like those in our governing party keep ignoring it.

Peter Kent is gone. But Joe Oliver is still with us.
