Warmists Wrong Again: September Was Not The Hottest On Record

satellite-temperatures-620x522Media outlets have been tirelessly reporting new data claiming that September 2014 was the hottest on record, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

But satellite data shows that last month was far from the hottest September ever recorded. University of Alabama, Huntsville satellite datasets show that September was the seventh warmest on record and Remote Sensing Systems datasets show last month was only the ninth warmest ever recorded.

This runs counter to media reports citing NOAA figures that this is the fourth heat record-setting month in a row. NOAA says the globe averaged 60.3 degrees Celsius last month — the hottest September ever going back through 135 years of record-keeping. NASA data also shows that last September was a record-setting month.

    Since when are skeptics embracing satellite data? I always thought they hated that exposing that the warming had accelerated.

    Well, suite your self.

        Meme, nice to see you here. But plz, say something else for a change. It gets kinda boring if you say the same old thing for over a 1000 times.

        I’ll explain it one more time.

        Virtually certain > 99% probability
        Extremely likely > 95% probability
        Very likely > 90% probability
        Likely > 66% probability
        More likely than not > 50% probability
        About as likely as not 33 to 66% probability
        Unlikely < 33% probability
        Very unlikely < 10% probability
        Extremely unlikely < 5% probability
        Exceptionally unlikely < 1% probability

        As you can see, likelihood never goes to 100%. In this case, you don't need it either.

    hotest or hottest

    • Nice catch. I didn’t notice that, and obviously no one else did either. Actually the original story says “warmest”. Jeff, I don’t think you’re supposed to change the title of original stories. I edited it to say “hottest” and not “hotest”, but I think you should consult Dan to see if you can change the titles. I’m pretty sure that is not allowed. I’m not 100% sure, but ask Dan.
