Chart of the Day

UPDATE: below

May's missing warming has a sequel: June's satellite-measured global average tropospheric temperature anomaly:

As Anthony Watts says:
What is not debatable is that the current global temperature anomaly, as determined by a leading authority on global satellite temperature measurements, says we have no departure from "normal" this month. Given the U.S. Senate is about to vote upon the most complex and costly plan to regulate greenhouse gases, while the EPA suppresses earlier versions of the chart . . . from a senior analyst, this should give some pause to those who are rational thinkers.
So much for Al Franken's vote--and the former Vice President still insists warming is akin to Hitler.


NOAA's U.S. surface temperature warming for June stayed the same: "The temperature trend for the period of record (1895 to present) is 0.1 degrees Fahrenheit per decade." That's still only one degree (F) per century--hardly a crisis. And the RSS satellite measurement for June is consistent with the UAH and surface measurements--plus 0.075 degrees (C):

Gee, at this rate, by 2050 it will be much
