Failed Meme Alert – “2010… Hottest Year EVER!!!!!!” UPDATE 1

Didn’t Happen.

2010 will not be the hottest year on record. As expected, due to the mid year fade of the El Nino and the establishment of La Nina conditions, temps took a late year nose dive and 2010 failed to beat the 1998 mark. As of this moment, average world temp is back to the decade average, meaning there is still no temp rise evident for at least a decade. As was 1998, 2010 temp was abnormally due to a strong El Nino, which pushed stored ocean heat back into the atmopshere. It wasn’t as strong as 98, but it was strong enough. I expect, if the ENSO / temp correlations hold to the usual pattern, the first few months of 2011 will be below average temp wise.

UPDATE:  UAH data is showing the same decline.

PS. GISStemp, run by Global Warming extremist James Hansen, will no doubt be warmer and give the record a run for its money. There temps charts are always higher than everybody else’s for some reason…

Hat Tip: WUWT

    The whole concept of a “global average temperature” as anything meaningful is a failed meme.

    If not everywhere warmed, and I can tell you Western Washington was well below average for most of 2010, then the warming isn’t global.

    Didn’t the sun have a gigantic sneeze in 1998?
    Think it’s still under the weather these days…
