I know the monthly global temperature data shouldn't be treated like a horse race. But it's fun.
RSS puts the Feb-2009 MSU global temperature anomaly at +0.230°C, and UAH at +0.36°C. That's an unusually wide difference between the two.
In any case, both are warmer than last year at this time, for the fourth month in a row.
 base period = 1978-1998
