Dr. Spencer is a warming skeptic, yet his figures and graphs show a continued and strong warming. Look at the 13 month running mean. It will surely surpass that of 1998. Nov. 2010 UAH Global Temperature Update: +0.38 deg. C Roy Spencer, Ph. D. The tropical tropospheric temperature anomaly for November continued its cooling trend, finally falling below the 1979-1998 average but the global anomaly is still falling slowly:+0.38 deg. C for October November, 2010. 2010 is now in a dead heat with 1998 for warmest year, with the following averages through November: 1998 +0.538 2010 +0.526 December will determine the outcome, but remember that the difference between the two years is not statistically significant.
