Update: it worked, the anomaly was 0.50 °C and I predicted 0.51 °C almost two weeks earlier.
Based on the daily UAH data, the global UAH anomaly for November 2009 will be 0.51 °C, plus minus 0.2 °C, up sharply from 0.28 °C in October 2009. A significantly strengthened El Nino may be partly blamed for the development.
The official 2009 Atlantic hurricane season will be completed at the end of November, too. So far, we have seen
- 9 named storms, including
- 3 hurricanes, including
- 2 major hurricanes
- ACE index: 50.8
At any rate, the data above are enough to explain why sleazy, greedy, and immoral environmental opportunists choose different backgrounds for their photographs than a hurricane in 2009.
