January 2012 Global Temperatures: “Coolest” in Four Years

By Paul Yeager, author of Weather Whys: Facts, Myths, and Oddities

Don’t worry–I’m not becoming one of those meteorologists who is obsessed with (and thinks he’s an expert in) climate science, but since the weather has not been terribly exciting across the U.S. this winter compared to recent years, I thought I’d highlight a climate-related post that I published on the Huffington Post yesterday: January: 19th Warmest Globally and “Coolest” in Four Years.

The word coolest is in quotes because even though the global temperature (combined land and sea surface average) is the coolest since January 2008, temperatures have remained about the 20th century normal.
