    August 2010 UAH Global Temperature Update: +0.51 deg. C Roy Spencer, Ph. D.

    While the global-average lower tropospheric temperature remained high, +0.51 deg. C in August, 2010, monitoring of the daily Aqua Ch.5 data at the Discover web site suggests that the cooling of global average sea surface temperatures that started several months ago is now causing the troposphere to cool as well. I will probably provide an update of that plot tomorrow.

    As of Julian Day 243 (end of August), the race for warmest year in the 32-year satellite period of record is still too close to call with 1998 continuing its lead by only 0.06 C:

    YEAR GL
    1998 +0.61
    2010 +0.55

    If we hit 90 degrees today in Baltimore, it'll be a new record for 90 degree or higher days set in 1988 at 54.

    One repeatable laboratory test, just one, that shows how a 200PPM increase in CO2 did that.

    Can you do that even one time?

    I've been show how a 200,000PPM increase does it, not a 200.

    See the difference?

    I can see, can you? I've told you many times that's EASILY provable in a lab. The fact that you ignore it and don't provide a counter argument, just further illustrates the intellectual dishonesty of the denier movement.
