D. reports that "The global-average lower tropospheric temperature anomaly soared to +0.72 deg. C in January, 2010. This is the warmest January in the 32-year satellite-based data record." and that's from good satellite data not Ratty old ground station data. If it get any warmer we're going to freeze to death.
