2022 temperature is 0.86C including October.

2022 looks set to be the 4th/5th warmest year averaging 0.86C above the 1961-1991 baseline after 10 months. The underlying trend is better represented  by the decadal integration which implies an overall warming of about 1.2C since the “pre-industrial” period.  (Note however that coverage uncertainty increases pre 1960, especially ocean temperatures).

Annual temperatures calculated by spherical triangulation. The Decadal temperatures are calculated independently using a 10 year integration over an icosahedral grid.

La Ninja remains a strong influence.

    I think this one temperature record is badly misleading. Compared to the 1979-2000 baseline “climatereanalyzer.org” has a current “global” warming at 0.66K. But that is..

    +1.39K NH
    -0.08K SH

    If anything, this is NOT global. It is only just NH warming. And it is not much better, if we expand the observational period. GISTEMP v4 also gives temperatures by latitude, split up in eight segments (90N-64N, 64N-44N, 44N-24N, 24-EQU, and the same for the SH). 2002-2021 vs 1880-1899, from north to south the warming is (in K)..


    As if this was not one sided enough, the orthodoxy claims a strong cooling by aerosols (1/3 of global GHG forcing), which are almost entirely concentrated in mid NH latitudes. In other words, the WHERE is exactly the opposite of what the science suggests..

    • Snape says:

      Your idea of global warming is too narrow.

      “Generally, all forms of energy are measured in terms of joules in the SI system. Notably, heat is a form of energy, and therefore the SI unit of heat is also joules (J) which are defined as the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of a given mass by one degree. Usually, 4.184 joules of heat energy is necessary to increase the temperature of a unit weight (say 1 g) of water from 0 degrees to 1-degree celsius.”

      Heat has been accumulating in five “systems” – the hydrosphere, atmosphere, geosphere, biosphere, and cryosphere – as a result of the energy imbalance at the TOA, but the hydrosphere is able to store a lot more of this heat than the other four. It follows that the Southern Hemisphere, with the lions share of Earth’s ocean, would have accumulated at least as much as its northern counterpart. A little research and you’ll find this is true.
