“Hottest Year” Update
By Paul Homewood While NASA and NOAA proclaim we are headed towards the “hottest year on record”, http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/ what do the more accurate satellite systems tell us? http://data.remss.com/msu/monthly_time_series/RSS_Monthly_MSU_AMSU_Channel_TLT_Anomalies_Land_and_Ocean_v03_3.txt http://vortex.nsstc.uah.edu/data/msu/t2lt/uahncdc_lt_5.6.txt According to RSS, the YTD anomaly ranks a very ordinary 7th warmest since 1998. UAH make it tie 3rd. Both are well below the two hottest years in 1998 and 2010. We have been continually told that the satellite data will catch up with the surface data after a lag, but it has stubbornly refused to do so. There is absolutely no way this year will get anywhere those record years on the satellite datasets, which is precisely why we will hear nothing about it from NASA, NOAA or the MSM.
