The official December temperature figures are out. I will in later posts look at the continental US figures for December, and compare them with a state/regional analysis.
And remember, these are the official figures. With the poor placement of stations (91 % of the stations are CRN 3 to 5 = bad to very poor); where they have purposely taken away the urban heat island effect, use huge smoothing radius, the historical “adjustment and tweaking” to cool the past etc.
Not to mention the great slaughter of GHCN stations 1990-1993 – roughly 63 % of all stations were “dropped”. Oddly enough many of them in cold places – Hmmm? Now the number of GHCN stations are back at the same numbers as in 1890.
Also remember that the US stations are now nearly a third of all the GHCN world stations.

December 2010 departure from normal temperature
December temperature 1900-2010
“The average temperature in December 2010 was 33.0 F. This was – 0.4 F cooler than the 1901-2000 (20th century) average, the 44th coolest December in 116 years. The temperature trend for the period of record (1895 to present) is 0.1 degrees Fahrenheit per decade. “
This year, the December temperature is – 5.45 F cooler than1939, the warmest December And if we compare this year’s December with 1957 it is – 4.83 F cooler. If we compare with1923 this year’s December is – 3.8 F cooler. And if we compare with 1886 is – 3.84 F cooler
This December is -0.45F degrees cooler than the average for 1900-2010.
That’s what I call RAPID WARMING and an eminent treat to humankind!
