The British Med Office has released the latest data on global surface temperatures based on now more than 3,000 land stations; there is no room for scepticism unless it is based on better, i.e. more and more reliable data; anything else is gobble-di-goo.
There are three independent sources that pretty much match:
- Met Office, in collaboration with the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UK)
- Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), which is part of NASA (USA)
(NCDC), which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) ( National Climatic Data Center ) USA
