Upward Spike In Global Temperature In January


The UAH satellite temperature readings for January show a lower tropospheric temperature anomoly of +0/51C.   This  is a large increase.  Dr Spencer, co-manager of the  system,  says he has double checked the results and finds them to be real, as opposed to a measurement error.  He suggest that the reason for such a large spike may be due to “ a temporary increase in convective heat transfer from the ocean to the atmosphere.” The UAH chart is shown below:

  1. Get used to it, the event that had abated the rise in global mean temperature has since ‘evaporated’ thus we return to the bad old days of ever increasing CC —– cheak out W Africa SSTs.
