The official January temperature figures are out. And the cooling continues – Sorry this should of course be that the rapid warming continues in an accelerated pace.
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 the all GHCN world stations.

January2011 departure from normal temperature
It is always ”fascinating” to see the huge difference between the national level when you compare it to the regional picture. Especially if you see the bright red areas in the official “Departure from normal” January picture above. Which covers the WHOLE western, and parts of central and eastern USA.
It looks very dramatic doesn’t it?
If you contrast that with the regional one, remember this is from the same people and the same “official data”; the difference is HUGE to say the least.
Ehhh? Where did these huge red areas of North West, West North Central and Northeast go???
You would think that huge bright red spots on a national level would be EVEN more dramatic on a regional level.
But they ARE GONE –zip, nada, nothing.
We are REALLY FACING EXTINCTION ARE WE NOT?
And Northeast with a “warming trend” of exactly – 0.03 F degrees a decade??
Whoa – Take cover! Armageddon is here.
And this is nothing new, it happens time and again. See for example my post:
This is the “stuff” that “Global Warming” is made of.
And as I said in the beginning – always remember that these figures are based on the official data that has been tweaked, “adjusted” and manipulated to fit there agenda (cool the past, ignore UHI and land use change factors, huge smoothing radius – 1200km etc.).
January temperature 1900-2011
“The average temperature in January 2011 was 30.0 F. This was -0.8 F cooler than the 1900-2000 (20th century) average, the 37th coolest January in 117 years. The temperature trend for the period of record (1895 to present) is 0.1 degrees Fahrenheit per decade. “
This year, the January temperature is – 9.74 F cooler than 2006, the warmest January. And if we compare this year’s January with 1998 it is – 5.67 F cooler.
If we compare with1953 this year’s January is – 7.23 F cooler. And if we compare with 1900 is – 4.91 F cooler
This January is – 1.05 F degrees cooler than the average for 1900-2011.
And notice the dramatic drop from 2006 to 2007. A drop of – 8.05 F degrees.
That’s what I call RAPID WARMING and an eminent treat to humankind!
And take a look at this interesting graph:
US State High Temperature Record by Decade
66% of ALL State High Temperature Records are PRIOR to 1940.
Don’t you see the rapid warming there?
Another brilliant example of RAPID WARMING and an eminent treat to humankind!
