Yeah, that urban heat island effect combined with NASA/NOAA gaming of surface temperature measurement is a b*tch.
USA Today reports:
June was unusually hot around the world. The month’s global temperature was the fifth-highest on record, scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Thursday.
Having a global average temperature of 61.05 degrees F, this June tied with June 2006 for the 5th-hottest since records began in 1880. Only Junes in 1998, 2005, 2010 and 2012 were hotter.
