It's official, the combined global land/ocean surface temperature for 2007 was the fifth warmest on record, according to NOAA's National Climatic Data Center. Also, 2007 was the tenth warmest on record for the contiguous U.S..
--Global land surface temperature was the warmest on record.

I think the average person, confronted by real problems in his everyday life, is beginning to tune out all this propaganda.
Does this mean they had 1990's budget cuts and kept the cheapest temp stations....ie the ones closest to university parking lots?
Good for them. Texas had the coolest wettest summer recorded in about 35 years.
Crap, you mean Accuweather is on the AGW bandwagon too?
Now where do I go for on-line weather?
What’s that last line mean? “Global land surface temperature was the warmest on record.”
Well, we’re making up for it already in early 2008. 3 inches of snow on the ground here outside of Atlanta and it hasn’t snowed this much here since 2001.
And sometime back in 2004 we had the coldest day here in Atlanta history!
I didn’t realize he was a newly minted partner at Kleiner Perkins. That explains alot.
FORTUNE: Al Gore’s next act: Planet-saving venture capitalist
Also, 2007 was the tenth warmest on record for the contiguous U.S..
This can also be stated as this was the coldest year of the last decade.
If you want to be cute, the coldest year of the century (seeing as there are only 8 years in the current century).
Your pulling my leg. A cold year you say?
Next you will be trying to tell me that is snowed in Buenes Aires this year for the big global warming day.
And that it even snowed in Saudi Arabia for the first time in memory.
I wish there was a push to increase funding for accurately measuring the earths temperature. I suspect that stuff vastly beyond our control causes the massive shifts in the earths weather (ie. ice ages), but it wouldn't hurt to get a better read on this. I don't want to accelerate a coming ice age nor to turn Earth into a desert planet. The records we have are poor and it is clear that the data we are recording RIGHT NOW in the 21st century are in many cases tainted. Before spending trillions on fixing a problem that may not even exist, why aren't we budgeting more money to make the measurements?
Or does that sound too reasonable?
Proof Of Global Warming!
It has been reported from a usually reliable source that a new record high land surface record was recorded last August at the monitoring station located on the south side of the blacktop parking lot next to the air conditioner at Al Gore's North Carolina Estate.
This occured shortly before the air conditioner unit seized up and exploded, ripping the back wall off the home.
Fortunately no-one was home at the time except the now deceased illegal immigrant caretaker as the Gore familiy was flying around the world in their private Boeing 747 bringing their "Fight Global Warming World Tour" to 153 countries.
Really? It was 10 degrees in Salt Lake this morning. Brrrrr.
More government spending? Nah, just execute the Gorons to solve the problem.
How come the graph in the 1975 article doesn’t agree with the graphs in post 23? According to the 1975 graph, the temperatures in 1970 were approximately equal to those in 1910. But the later graphs show the temperatures in 1970 to be much higher. How can this possibly be?
