    GISTEMP update- 2020 is certain to be a top -3 year in temperatures- 70% chance of a record year.

    Gavin Schmidt, head of NASA GISS, just reported the projection for 2020 temperature data with a few months in the bag.

    With today's update to GISTEMP, 2020 is now virtually certain to be a top 3 year (in timeseries back to 1880), the 6th year in a row more than 1șC above the late 19th C, and a good chance of breaking the record (~70%). data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/

    Looks like its gonna be a hot one. Yet the deniers still deny.

    Not likely.

    UAH Global Temperature Update for April 2020: +0.38 deg. C

    May 1st, 2020UPDATE: Changed emphasis from Northern Hemisphere extratropics to entire Northern Hemisphere (h/t John Christy)
    In April, 2020, the Northern Hemisphere experienced its 2nd largest 2-month drop in temperature in the 497-month satellite record.
    The Version 6.0 global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) anomaly for April, 2020 was +0.38 deg. C, down from the March, 2020 value of +0.48 deg. C.
    The Northern Hemisphere temperature anomaly fell from +0.96 deg. C to 0.43 deg. C from February to April, a 0.53 deg. C drop which is the 2nd largest 2-month drop in the 497-month satellite record. The largest 2-month drop was -0.69 deg. C from December 1987 to February 1988.
