Global temperature anomaly for year 2008

Global surface temperature anomaly for December-08

Is the global climate changing?

Yes. But let’s look more closely at what that means. We can start with the time from 1856 to the present. We have a good record of global temperature for this recent period. Accurate temperature measurements were made at many locations around the world.

There have been some sharp year-to-year fluctuations. During some periods, such as the 1940s, there was a drop in global temperature, but the overall trend is up when we look at the past century and a half.

MAX temperature up by 2 deg

During the past 5 days the max temperature was UP by 2 deg... this is a significant change. But the MIN temperature is almost the same at 20/21 degrees... this has remained the same for the past 20 days.
We are almost at the end of short chennai Winter.
This winter was mild and even one can say it's bit colder than the previous year.
Now the max temperature is hovering around 31.8°C
This will increase by another 1 deg after 15-Feb... and will rise to 34 deg around 10-Mar-09.
After that every Chennai person will know, what and how it'll be...:)
