NASA Recomputes

NASA GISS has recomputed their October temperature anomaly: +0.58°C.
  • That's warmer than last October (+0.53°C), so those silly people who look at short-term statistics must now conclude that the globe is warming again.
  • This is the fourth warmest October since records began, all of them since 2003.
  • Year-to-date, this is (so far) the 9th warmest year on record, all of the larger once being since 1998.
  • I'm sure skeptics will find some statistical combination that will allow them to still claim global cooling.
UPDATE: GISS has adjusted its October number to +0.55°C. (Such adjustments take place all the time, even many months in the past.) All the above still holds.
