Records & AdjustmentsPosted: December 5, 2014

While the Met Office tell us that that global temperatures for 2014 are running 0.01C above the previous record (with an error margin of 0.1C!), we should remember how much their temperature data has changed over the last few years.
[The latest update of the old V3 is only up to May 2014]
In their Hadcrut V3, 1998 was 0.07C warmer than 2010, but is now shown as 0.02C cooler, a turnaround of 0.09C. Current year numbers, at least up to May, have been similarly inflated.
So, the adjustment is nearly ten times the amount by which the old record is claimed to have been beaten by!
