2010 — Global Temperature and Europe's Frigid Air

By James Hansen, Reto Ruedy, Makiko Sato and Ken Lo

Figure 1(a) shows January-November 2010 surface temperature anomalies
(relative to 1951-80) in the preliminary Goddard Institute for Space
Studies analysis. This is the warmest January-November in the GISS
analysis, which covers 131 years.
The cold anomaly in Northern Europe in November has continued and
strengthened in the first half of December. Combined with the unusual
cold winter of 2009-2010 in Northern Hemisphere mid-latitudes, this
regional cold spell has caused widespread commentary that global
warming has ended. That is hardly the case. On the contrary, globally
November 2010 is the warmest November in the GISS record.
