RSS & UAH Update
By Paul Homewood
Both satellite datasets are out for December – and both are substantially down.
UAH – Down from 0.28 to 0.21.
RSS – Down from 0.19 to 0.10.
These numbers reflect the fizzling out of the small El Nino, that peaked in June – August. Since September, RSS has dropped 0.28C, with UAH also down by 0.13C. (This of course was the El Nino that was not, according to the UK Met Office!)
Full graphs etc once GISS and HADCRUT are out. Meanwhile, just consider that the 2002-2011 average for RSS was 0.26C, and UAH was 0.19C. It will be interesting if Roy Spencer’s new V6.0 comes closer to RSS, when it is ready.
Either way, even with currently neutral ENSO conditions, there has been no warming for 10 years on either set.
