The BoM much trumpeted claim that 2013 was our hottest year is less than robust because some global climate groups disagree

Checking the Bureau of Meteorology claim against data from various global climate research groups available at KNMI Climate Explorer shows that not all support the BoM claim.

CRUT4, GISS and NCDC are not yet available through December but will check as they become available to end 2013. The BoM might have some support there.

Note my December 2013 post highlighting the warming drift 2005-2006 in UAH compared to RSS. In the chart it is plain that UAH is badly out of step at 2006.

  1. Heard Will Steffan claim last years heat is caused by global warming. He also describes the record cold in the Northern Hemisphere is caused by climate change too! On ‘their’ ABC of course.

  2. Masks are available now for many countries incl Australia at KNMI Climate Explorer.
    If you go to –
    climexp.knmi.nl/
    I usually choose “Monthly Observations” –
    Select a database by clicking on link –
    That takes you to a page where you can enter latitude longitude or select a country mask.
    If you select a mask – then click on the “Make time series” button you see a map in red with an outline of your data the detail of which depends on the detail of the database grid.
