Global temperature entering free fall!

As seen from the above UAH (Satellite) graph, temperature anomaly stood at 0.1 degree at the end of October, halving its value in the end of September. 

Data provided by the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) 5 on board the Earth Observing System (EOS) Aqua spacecraft indicate not only a similar trend but also highlighting that temperatures are the lowest for the last decade, even below 2008 - the year of a very strong La NiƱa, and therefore the coldest year of the last decade.
More interesting is that the current temperatures at 400mb (25kft) and 250mb (36kfr) both of which are recording new lows.
