Oh this just in. NASA recently said that September 2014 was the warmest since records began. Now NOAA has released their figures, and reports:

Quote:
•The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for September 2014 was the highest on record for September, at 0.72°C (1.30°F) above the 20th century average of 15.0°C (59.0°F).
•The global land surface temperature was 0.89°C (1.60°F) above the 20th century average of 12.0°C (53.6°F), the sixth highest for September on record. For the ocean, the September global sea surface temperature was 0.66°C (1.19°F) above the 20th century average of 16.2°C (61.1°F), the highest on record for September and also the highest on record for any month.
•The combined global land and ocean average surface temperature for the January–September period (year-to-date) was 0.68°C (1.22°F) above the 20th century average of 14.1°C (57.5°F), tying with 1998 as the warmest such period on record.

The average September temperature for the global oceans was record high for the month, at 0.66°C (1.19°F) above the 20th century average, the highest on record for September. This also marked the highest departure from average for any month since records began in 1880, breaking the previous record of 0.65°C (1.17°F) set just one month earlier in August

Funny part is when the old high temperature record comes from the mid 30s or something and this only beats it out by a few fractions of a degree.

Acftually the better part of 1 degree C. Which wouldn't be that significant for a single stations temperature record, but is quite significant when averaging thousands of temperature stations. It's an aritiffact of statistics--the more samples you have, the more surprised you are to find any deviation from the mean. If you flip a coin once, you're not suprised if it is 100% heads. If you flip the coin 40,000 times, you'd be very surpsied to see 100% heads.

This evidence is corroborated by by receding glaciers, loss of artic sea ice, changes in hydrology, rising sea levels and those weird craters in Siberia. It is getting warmer. For me, it's notable that we are not in an El Nino year (1998, the hotest year on record, had an abnormally strong El Nino event).

My own thinking is that we would have seen a decrease in temperatures over the past 20 years or so if it weren;t for the additional heating due to anthropogenic CO2 emissions.
