Is It Really Warmer?

You tell me…

November 2012 was the globe’s 5th warmest November on record, said National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) on Monday. NASA rated November 2012 the 2nd warmest November on record. Global temperature records begin in 1880. November 2012 global land temperatures were the 6th warmest on record, and global ocean temperatures were also the 6th warmest on record. Including this November, the 10 warmest Novembers have occurred in the past 12 years, and November 2012 was the 333rd consecutive month with global temperatures warmer than the 20th century average. The last time Earth had a below-average November global temperature was in 1976, and the last below-average month of any kind was February 1985–during the Reagan administration, when the cost of a first-class stamp was 20 cents.
