UAH Global Temperature Update for July 2017: +0.28 deg. C

CCD Editor’s Note: The current linear temperature trend for the lower tropospheric atmosphere (air around us) since 1979 (the satellite era) is 0.13°C per decade. That’s about a 1.0-degree increase over the next 80 years, far below the IPCC’s overheated computer models and about the same rate since we left the Little Ice Age in the 1850s.

The Version 6.0 global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) anomaly for July 2017 was +0.28 deg. C, up a little from the June 2017 value of +0.21 deg. C (click for full-size version):

Global area-averaged lower tropospheric temperature anomalies (departures from 30-year calendar monthly means, 1981-2010). The 13-month centered average is meant to give an indication of the lower frequency variations in the data; the choice of 13 months is somewhat arbitrary… an odd number of months allows centered plotting on months with no time lag between the two plotted time series. The inclusion of two of the same calendar months on the ends of the 13-month averaging period causes no issues with interpretation because the seasonal temperature cycle has been removed as has the distinction between calendar months.

The linear temperature trend of the global average lower tropospheric temperature anomalies from January 1979 through July 2017 is now +0.13 C/decade.

NOTE: In June 2017 we added the Metop-B satellite to the processing stream, with data since mid-2013. The Metop-B satellite has its orbit actively maintained, so the AMSU data from it does not require corrections from orbit decay or diurnal drift. As a result of adding this satellite, most of the monthly anomalies since mid-2013 have changed by typically a few hundredths of a degree C.

The UAH LT global anomaly image for July 2017 should be available in the next few days here.

The new Version 6 files should also be updated in the coming days, and are located here:

    If it was 1 degree warmer on a friday in July then it was on Thursday that eco-wackos would b lame it all on Trump for pulling america out of the Junk Science Paris Accord
