Earth's Temperature Is Indeed Warming - Independent Analysis Backs NASA, NOAA, Others

The result, as the BBC says, "a graph remarkably similar to those produced by the world's three most important and established groups [NOAA, NASA, and the Met Office and Climatic Research Unit], work had been decried as unreliable and shoddy in climate skeptic circles." In short, the BEST study essentially confirms that, yes, Earth is getting warmer. In determining that, the project examined more than a billion temperature records going back to the 1800s, from 15 different sources around the world, and found that since the 1950s average global land temperature has risen by roughly 1°C. This is "on the high end of the existing range of reconstructions," the study says. Importantly, the study found that while the overall warming for the 20th century averaged to 0.73°C, from 1960-2000 the average rate was 2.76°C, and from 1998-2010 it was 2.84°C.
