Here Comes Cooling
From the University of Alabama, Huntsville is this graph of satellite-sensed earth temperatures.
Since summer, I have been expecting a significant cooling trend in earth's temperatures to begin due to solar effects, a La Nina, and the PDO (a long-lasting area of cold water in the Pacific). It will be interesting to see how long this lasts and how cool it gets.
This data goes back to 1979 when the satellite-sensed temperatures first became available.
