    NOAA: Seventh Warmest January for Global Temperatures
    February 18, 2009

    The combined global land and ocean surface average temperature for January 2009 was the seventh warmest since records began in 1880, according to a preliminary analysis by NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C.

    The analyses in NCDC’s global reports are based on preliminary data, which are subject to revision. Additional quality control is applied to the data when late reports are received several weeks after the end of the month and as increased scientific methods improve NCDC’s processing algorithms.

    Of course when someone points out a VERY cold month with some record, the response becomes, " One month proves nothing". Usual bullshit from the enviro-retards.

    Your total failure to understand that relationship is just indictutive of your lack of scientific understanding, period.

    Were there to be no CO2 in the atmosphere, the oceans would be frozen, pole to pole. And there would be very, very little water vapor in the atmosphere.

    The GHGs absorbtion of outgoing heat is what creates and atmosphere warm enough for water to eveporate. Water vapor is a feedback, not a primary cause. It's residence time is simply too limited.

    The constant yapping about global cooling, yet even with the present persistant La Nina, the winter months are in the top ten for warmth, worldwide. You fellows are just plain stupid to keep up the yappng. In the next three years, it is very likely that we will see at least one warmer than 1998 or 2005. And people like me are going to remind you of your persistant stupidity.

    We are supposed to be cooling, but January is the seventh warmest January on record, and February is the ninth warmest on record. Seems your cooling is pretty weak in the knees. Don't you think you could jack it up to at least the 50th warmest on record out of 162 years? Wouldn't that look a little better for your arguement? Stupid is as stupid does, and you fellows are certainly doing.

    Old Rocks: I enjoy a good debate as much as anyone, but reading your posts are the equivalent of chewing angry, dry sand. Your anger and non-stop bitterness isn't conducive to reading what you have to say, or wanting to understand your point.

    I am always concerned about the environment and the world we live in. I grew up in the country and ended up back in the country, and learned long ago that everything is ecologically chained to each other...the point being is that I read with interest any discussions or news articles that are factual and educational.

    If you could spend less time writing angry rebuttals and more time showing your reasoning, I would be interested in what you have to say.

    Fuck you asshole. One ninth warmest January or February is irrelevant to whether or not we are cooling or warming. Shows you either know nothing about scientific research or you are just an asshole, or both.
