Lower Troposphere: Warmest 5 Years in the Record

This is curious (and perhaps meaningless): the UAH measurement of the lower troposphere shows the last 5 years to be the warmest since they started taking data in 1978.

Perhaps it's the start of another step on the escalator. Or just a short-term blip.

Heh! Love it! Exactly what warmists criticize skeptics for doing! Short time frames, and including El Nino years to show what one wishes. Take 2010 out and you'd see that the recent temps are pretty much the same as the previous decade.

1) There have been no El Ninos in the last 5 years.

2) Perhaps you missed the words "and perhaps meaningless" and "short-term blip."

Slef-styled "climate skeptics" were never good at irony, Dave.

Of course, the "skeptics" will avert their eyes from applying their own mathematical methods to this fact, or factoid.

There was, in fact, an El Niño event from JJA 2009 to MAM 2010.

Overall, though, La Niña conditions have most prevailed over the last five years.
