A very different kind of graph.
Dr Roy Spencer is one of the few people who are in the camp of the warming-doubters (insert preferred nomenclature, ‘skeptic’, denialist etc) who is actually a scientist actively involved in a key area of research in the topic. His particular area is the measurement of global temperatures using salivate data and for multiple reasons his data series is one oft-cited by those casting FUD around when it comes to anthropogenic global warming.
So when Roy Spencer finds an increase in temperature remarkable it is fair to say that it is remarkable. http://www.drroyspencer.com/2016/03/uah-v6-global-temperature-update-for-feb-2016-0-83-deg-c-new-record/
The Version 6.0 global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) anomaly for February, 2016 is +0.83 deg. C, up almost 0.3 deg C from the January value of +0.54 deg. C (click for full size version), which is a new record for the warmest monthly anomaly since satellite monitoring began in late 1978.
Now maybe Spencer has messed up or the data is wrong in some way but that is a remarkable leap even during an El Niño.
