The opposite (gonna learn to read digr) Almost: during the month of April, the eastern US and Canuckia was way cooler than the average at the same time of the year as determined between 1951-1980.

'member when we had snow last month, that was that happening

How does the "400 months in a row" work into that?

Is it "400 months in a row", or is it April?

Or, is it 400 Aprils in a row?

That's weather, not climate.

The climate is changing to warmer and that's not good.

The "400 months" is that this is the 400th month in a row that overall world temperatures have been higher than average.

But IMO that's a silly way to look at the data, since the number would be higher than the 1951-1980 average for 400 months if it rose a teeny bit 400 months ago, and then stayed constant.

Also, the 1951-80 data is weaker and is missing large parts of the earth. And I believe it's land-only? I think, I dunno.

The best way to look at it, again IMO, is to consider only the post-1980 temperatures, as they are much more accurate than anything pre-1980, because that is when the satellites took over the job.

The best way to watch those temperatures is by following the UAH6.0 lower troposphere reported temps, a graph of which currently looks like this (an interesting graph, so it's pertinent to the thread):



That way you are only looking at satellite numbers and comparing them to satellite numbers. The satellites do make mistakes (they drift), and some of this data has been corrected for, but it's considered pretty accurate.

The "anomaly" here, the number being graphed, is the temp versus the 1980 average. So, in April 2018, the planet lower troposphere of the planet was considered to be 0.21 degrees C hotter than it was in 1980.

It looks like 1980 was a high point of a cycle, and the graph ends on a low point. So the low point of a roughly +/- 0.2 degree cycle now is 0.2 degrees over the high point of the cycle 40 years ago. It would be easier to see what's happening if there were a trendline plotted through the datapoints.


edit accuracy: high point of probably 1981 was closer to 0.1 than 0; current low point is 0.1 degrees higher than that.

What does the blue over eastern North America indicate?

Democrats. See, it's a political map. Democrats are blue and Republicans are red.
