A Correction About How Warm It Was In 2011

2012/01/28

I need to make a small correction.  In my post The Difference Between Weather and Climate.  Animated!, I stated that “2011 was the warmest La Nina year on record, as well as the 11th warmest year overall, according to NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)”.  In actuality, 2011 was the 9th warmest year since 1880.  My apologies.

It would be important to ad that of the 10 warmest years since modern record keeping began, nine occurred since the year 2000.
