How warm or cold was November?
Remote Sensing Systems has released their global satellite measured temperature data for the month of November.
The temperature data covers the lower troposphere.
According to Remote Sensing Systems, November 2010 was the 6th warmest November in the satellite record going back to 1979.
The Arctic region continues to see the warmest anomalies, which is no surprise.
Also, note the image below, which shows the warmth over NE Canada and eastern Europe, while NW Europe and eastern Australia were much cooler than normal.
Here are the actual temperature anomaly numbers:
Global (70 S to 82.5N): +.312 C or +.561 F, by the way October 2010 was +.293 C.
Arctic region (60 N to 82.5 N): +1.24 C or +2.23 F.
Tropics (20 S to 20 N): -0.087 C.........thank you La Nina!
Cont. USA: -0.039 C
The longer term temperature trend is +.163 C per decade.
The University of Alabama (UAH) satellite measured temperature anomaly for the month of November was +0.38 C or +.684 F. globally.

Greenland may be ice free by the year 3000, if the rate of greenhouse gas emissions remains unchanged.

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is not going to be cheap, but do we have any choice at this point?

The Arctic region continues to warm at about twice the rate than the planet as a whole and we see no evidence that this trend will significantly slow or reverse in the near future.

The steady increase of greenhouse gas emissions may increase the risk of rapidly strengthening tropical storms and hurricanes along the East coast of the United States by late this century.

Trees are growing faster, but dying earlier, which is reducing the length of time that trees are storing carbon.
