Here we are, in a non El Nino year, and UAH calculates that the lower troposphere was at a record high temperature for December in their records (starting in 1978).
It was also a record high meteorological autumn (Sept-Nov).
The year ranked 3rd highest in their records, making it a record high ENSO-neutral year.
Who ordered that?
PS: One genius at Spencer's blog, Bob Weber, thinks we're in a "mini-ice age."
The 2020s are going to be a contest to see which denier can make the laughable statement possible. Starting out, I nominate this.
