January RSS temperature anomaly

RSS says that January's troposphere was +0.322°C above the long-term average. That's the largest figure in year and a half and much larger than last January's -0.066°C.

It's interesting to read the comments at What's Watts Up With That. This number must be wrong, of course, because it's too large for their ideologies. Of course, the numbers seemed alright last year when they were relatively low. So it goes. Kind of reminds me what Planck said:
"An important scientific innovation rarely makes its way by gradually winning over and converting its opponents: it rarely happens that Saul becomes Paul. What does happen is that its opponents gradually die out, and that the growing generation is familiarised with the ideas from the beginning."
-- Max Planck

Nonetheless, globul warmins a scay-um and our preferred measurement yesterday obviously needs somebody to go up there and take pictures of it to straighten this mess out!!!!!!
