And that’s according to NASA. Let’s see the climate change deniers argue with those nerds. “We conclude that global temperature continued to rise rapidly in the past decade” and “there has been no reduction in the global warming trend of 0.15-0.20°C/decade that began in the late 1970s.”
Here’s the full report on the NASA site.
The yearly running mean global temperature has reached a new record in 2010, and all that despite the recent minimum of solar irradiance.
NOAA just released their monthly El Niño/Southern oscillation update, which notes:
“The majority of models predict ENSO-neutral conditions (between -0.5°C to +0.5°C in the Niño-3.4 region) through early 2011. However, over the last several months, a growing number of models, including the NCEP Climate Forecast System (CFS), indicate the onset of La Niña conditions during June-August 2010.”
