its been two weeks since the new year. Ive seen dozens of stories about 2010tied for warmest ever, some stories even put 2010 as second all-time. but what is happening in the best documented, most thoroughly measured country in the world? 23rd. doncha think with all the media hype and statements released by govt agencies that someone would have thought that was news worthy? apparently not. Old Rocks is going to come on and say the USA is only 2% of the globe, or the land mass, whatever. Is it 2% of the measuring stations? does the continent of Africa have as many stations, and do we know what shape they are in? how about south america, or the middle east? here is a copy of NCDC graph for the US CONTIGUOUS UNITED STATES Climate Summary read a story about it by someone who found the information, no thanks to the govt or media. According to NCDC’s own data, 2010 was not the warmest year in the United States, nor even a tie | Watts Up With That? the trend line is 0.12F/decade, is that about 0.7C per century?
