GISS Releases (Suspect) October 2008 Data

October 2008 “warmest” October on record (according to GISS)


Climate Audit points out the huge warming in Russia might be because a large number of the weather stations there are reporting that October was exactly the same temperature as September... hmmm

And as for the balmy warmth in the British Isles I can only speak for England where I failed to notice the warmth as also did the the official Central England Temperature Record which records an average for October 1951-80 as 10.52 degrees and Oct 2008 as 9.7. Even the Met Office says that
October 2008 - Maximum, minimum and mean daily temperatures were all below average across the UK.

But look again at the map in detail...


But Jim Hansen reckons it was a lot warmer, and who are we to argue...


It is still the same temperature in Moscow as it was in September. We had a cold summer and now we're having a warm autumn - middle of November and there's no snow, winter coat still in storage, sun streaming through the window.
