Year end data not yet available from NOAA, but :
November 2012 global temperatures were fifth highest on record
The globally-averaged temperature for November 2012 marked the fifth warmest November since record keeping began in 1880. November 2012 also marks the 36th consecutive November and 333rd consecutive month with a global temperature above the 20th century average.
Most areas of the world experienced higher-than-average monthly temperatures, including far eastern Russia, Australia, the central and western United States, northern Africa, and most of Europe and western Asia. Meanwhile, central Asia, Alaska, much of western and central Canada, and the eastern United States were most notably cooler than average.
LET US HOPE THE REST OF HUMANITY AWAKENS AND ACTS BEFORE ITS TOO LATE..........
I would hope they wake up before it's too late, but even with these signs of global warming too many people don't believe it's real, even here on Care2!!
