June 2009 doesn’t quite rank with the hottest Junes ever in 130 years of data records, but it comes awfully close.
NASA GISS have this evening released their graphs of the data for June 2009, and it is sobering, nay, disturbing :-
My two favourite charts are the ones that say the most powerful things in the most simple way.
The “Ranking” chart which changes its name and content each year is a simple way of comparing the current year to two previously hot years :-

NOAA release their data for June on 15th July. That should be worrying as well. It looks like El Nino is back and hot :-
