Rapidly cools the planet!

After 2010, became the warmest year on record, came the "cold days." January 2010 on the value of global temperature land + ocean (12,38 ° C) took only the 17th warmest for the observation period from 1880 — reported by climatologists NOAA (National Authority for the atmosphere and the ocean, USA) . To the average global temperature of the 20th century was 0,38 °. This modest result can probably be explained by the cooling effect of La Niña, which is celebrated in eastern tropical Pacific Ocean. If we consider only the temperature of the surface of the continents, it is at 0,45 ° C higher than the average for the 20th century (2,8 ° C) and was 29th in the ranked list. Sea surface temperature exceeded the average (15,8 °) to 0,35 ° and took 11th place in the list of the warmest. The highest value of positive anomalies were in the south Pacific and Indian Oceans, as well as in the North Atlantic near Greenland and Canada. La Niña, a moderate to strong, continued during January in the central and eastern tropical Pacific Ocean. La Niña conditions will weaken and move to neutral, as expected by May-June. But not everywhere it was very cold and sad. For example, in Moscow, the average January temperature is above the norm by almost 2 degrees
