The final calculations have been done by the Meteorological Office for the average Central England Temperature in 2009 and shown in a graph online :-
I downloaded the data :-
and used my best guesswork to figure how the monthly averages combine to make the total and came up with a figure that indicates that the Central England Temperature, on average over the whole of 2009, was 0.63 degrees Centigrade/Celsisus over the long-term norm.
This looks like it matches the chart shown on the official website :-
I know that the Central England Temperature is not representative of the entire world, but relative to Central England, this is a massive hike in average temperatures.
Why is there no media coverage of this news ?
