Not going to belabor the point, but supporters of man-made climate change continue to struggle with the fact that CO2 predictions made over the past two decades simply have NOT materialized. This report will make their claim even more difficult, but fantasy is part of their reality. This is one of the most difficult pieces of factual information to find on the Internet right now:
Global Temperature Report: March 2011
Global composite temp.: -0.10 C (about 0.18 degrees Fahrenheit) below 30-year average for March.
Northern Hemisphere: -0.07 C (about 0.13 degrees Fahrenheit) below 30 year average for March.
Southern Hemisphere: -0.13 C (about 0.23 degrees Fahrenheit) above/below 30-year average for March.
Tropics: -0.35 C (about 0.63 degrees Fahrenheit) below 30-year average for March.
Notes on data released April 5, 2011:
Driven by the La Nina Pacific Ocean cooling event, global average temperatures in March 2011 were the coolest March since 1999, according to Dr. John Christy, professor of atmospheric science and director of the Earth System Science Center at The University of Alabama in Huntsville.
It was the fifth coolest March in the tropics, where the average temperature fell 0.35 C (about 0.63 degrees Fahrenheit) below seasonal norms. Three of the five coldest tropical Marches in the 33-year satellite temperature record have happened in the past dozen years: 5th, 2011, -0.35 C: 3rd, 2000, -0.42; and 2nd, 2008, -0.58 C.
