The developing La Nina in the Pacific has brought the global temperature in September down slightly, but it was still the 8th warmest on record.CO2 GOES UP EVERY YEAR, BUT TEMPERATURES DO NOT - AND THEY TRACK MORE CLOSELY WITH OCEAN CYCLES.
NASA does a separate calculation and ranks Sep. 2011 as 9th warmest. When a La Nina develops the world’s largest ocean sees noticeably cooler surface waters. This chills the air enough to bring the global temperatures down, while El Nino does just the opposite.
The super El Nino in 1998 still ranks as one of the hottest years recorded on the planet since reliable temp. records began.
IOW: IT'S AIN'T THE MAN-MADE CO2, STUPID!
IOW: AGW = TFBS.
