Or 1893.

Or 1943.

Well said, Stan.

Keep up the good work on the 'global warming' lie.

Very selective there Stan!

Glancing down the year column, 2006 appears to be the hottest by about 0.2'C. Also check the frequency of yearly averages over 10.0 since 1990 against the number further up. They are generally higher than further up the table too, only 1950 comes close to what are fairly average temperatures since 1990.

Of course there will be fluctuations but if you are trying to say there is no warming (as opposed to no anthopogenic warming) you have appeared to scored a distinct own goal there.

Hi xoggoth - I'm not saying there is no warming and I've never claimed there wasn't. In fact, given that we went through the "Little Ice Age" I'd be surprised (and a little cheesed off) if there wasn't. My argument has always been that it is impossible to draw the conclusion from the evidence available that warming is attributable to man.

Having said all that - those temperatures are for Central England and I don't believe you can draw the conclusion of Global Warming from the temperature in Central England, either.

The point of the post is to demonstrate the selective reporting of the BBC in claiming that this April is the "warmest ever". It isn't - but the BBC reports it as so for a reason and that reason is to perpetuate the myth that we're experiencing something unprecedented - which we're not (that's we as in the earth rather than we as in this generation)

Exactly.
Interesting the Beeb only mention the temperature in the UK for April

Was it a record month in France or Germany perhaps or Vietnam or wherever it is Borat comes from?

It is after all GLOBAL warming

Uh no. April is the warmest on record, period. As the figures you link to show. Are you blind? Or are you under the illusion that April is the 5th column of figures?
