Colder Than Normal March Worldwide

According to NOAA and NASA satellite data

6 Apr 11 - Lower than normal global average temperatures last month made it the coolest March since 1999, says Dr. John Christy, professor of atmospheric science and director of the Earth System Science Center at The University of Alabama in Huntsville.

Driven by La Nina (cyclic cooling in the Pacific Ocean), average temperature in the tropics fell 0.35 C (about 0.63 F) below normal, making it the fifth coolest March in the tropics ever recorded in satellite data.

In what must be a blow to AGW proponents, three of the five coldest tropical Marches in the satellite temperature record have occurred in the past dozen years. The satellite record goes back 33 years.

Christy and Dr. Roy Spencer, a principal research scientist in the ESSC, use data gathered by NOAA and NASA satellites to get accurate temperature readings for almost all regions of the Earth. This includes remote desert, ocean and rain forest areas where reliable climate data are not otherwise available. Their work is part of an ongoing joint project between UAHuntsville, NOAA and NASA

       "Mainstream media will miss this one too," says Alex.

"Neither Christy nor Spencer receives any research support or funding from oil, coal or industrial companies or organizations, or from any private or special interest groups," says this article on" All of their climate research funding comes from federal and state grants or contracts."
