UN: Decade Likely Warmest On Record

The world's weatherman says this decade has very likely been the warmest in the historical record, and 2009 likely will end as one of the warmest years.

The World Meteorological Organization released the data in Copenhagen on the second day of a pivotal 192-nation climate conference, where delegates are working to craft a global deal to step up efforts to stem climate change.

Michel Jarraud, WMO secretary-general, says the decade 2000-2009 is "very likely" the warmest since record-keeping began in 1850, and 2009 is likely to be about the fifth-warmest year on record.

    Seems an odd statement Snake oil. here it is coming up on dec. and i've only worn a jacket a couple times. Sounds more like your blowing off politicle steam as opposed to doing any real research.

    I need a job as a weatherman. The forecast could be done in less than a minute but it takes them ten to explain why the weather didn't do what they said it was going to do in the first place.

    The Americans who remember the spirit of America past had better get their heads out of the sand and stop this runaway socialist(maybe Communist is a better word)train before it is too late. All of the liberal dimwits and deadbeats had better realize that their largesse is short lived. America is on the verge of financial meltdown and all our "great leaders" can do is spend our country further into debt death. Throw the Traitors out of office and make them work a real job. Let us place people of integrity and character into positions of authority and THEN hold their feet to the fire. GOD PLEASE SAVE AMERICA!!!

    Can the worlds weathermen tell us why the NOAA temperatures show it to be the coldest? With the exposure of emails showing that this was and is the biggest scam to occur in the US, this story shouldn't even be aired. Now you know why Fox news and even ABC reported more of the facts. These weatherman are on on the liberal dole and are telling a lie for the cause. There is no global warming, the facts say global cooling with last year being the coldest. Whenever you see a story like this, you know its more wool for the cap and trade bill. The lie that never ends. Even Al Gore didn't show up in Copenhagen.....
