Even the SST data is uber high for January. And the above is from Roy Spencer - a septic.
This coming year will likely be the warmest on record. Bottle of Red on it if you want.

The Earth Observing System (EOS) is a program of NASA comprising a series of artificial satellite missions and scientific instruments in Earth orbit designed for long-term global observations of the land surface, biosphere, atmosphere, and oceans of the Earth. The satellite component of the program was launched in 1997. The program is centerpiece of NASA's Earth Science Enterprise (ESE).
Mathews Graph 1976: 1955 – 1965 was around 0.3C warmer than 1970’s
Hansen/GISS 1980: 1955 – 1965 was around 0.1C warmer than 1970’s
Hansen/GISS 1987: 1955 – 1965 was around 0.05C warmer than 1970’s
Hansen/GISS 2007: 1955 – 1965 was around 0.03C cooler than 1970’s
Although it would appear that because of the "record snowfalls" across the country, that global warming couldn't possibly be happining. However, we have NOT had record cold temps. In fact the overall temps have been "warmer." And with warmer temps globally we get more moisture in the air, thus leading to larger storms and unusuall weather. Just because it is snowing in many parts of the world does not equal cooling,

Gee, how is that prediction working out for them?
We are 1/4th of the way through the year, we just had record snowfalls in the Midwest, Spring has not hit the Gulf Coast yet, Europe is coming off an extremely hard winter, water temperatures in the Gulf and the Atlantic are unseasonably cool, Manatees are still dying from exposure.
So, I guess they are predicting that the remaining 9 months of this year will be so Hot that it will overcome an extremely cold start and cause the average for the year to be a record? Are we looking at 110 degree summer days?
I don't think so, I think we are looking at a study that got published a little too late, and just looks silly at this point. This was supposed to have come out before all the Cap and Trade debates.

For the years 1958-75 Hansen/GISS (1980) only finds a temperature decline of approximately 0,07 K (red) in stead of the 0,3 K decline (blue) from Raobcore, Korshover etc.
