    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?

    take a look at the temps from 1930-1980. can you see why so many were predicting a new ice age? but t was just a mirage. but THIS time there is no doubt, the world is burning up. until it doesnt and we move onto the next doomsday scenario.

    really? no one is interested that the most measured country in the world is showing less warming, or that the media is ignoring that aspect?

    The mean average is almost completely unchanged. (yellow line)

    Hey Ian, you know that huge gap where GISS is no longer using the weather stations on the ground up in the arctic? You know that 1200 km area that is measured by a SINGLE weather station. Amazingly enough that is where it is really hot! The rest of the world is fairly cool, but not up there where there are no stations. Nope, up there it is smokin hot!
