According to the Guardian newspaper (http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/jul/28/global-temperatures-2010-record), scientists from the Met Office and the US National Climactic Data Centre (USNCDC), have released data showing what they claim is "the best evidence yet" of a long-term rise in global temperatures.
The report was the first to collate 11 different indicators from air temperature to melting ice and sea-surface temperature. Data for each indicator was based on between three an seven data sets, dating back between 1850 and 1970.
It is to be hoped that this will help to dispel the growing apathy and loss of faith in the the scientific evidence of global climate change, exploited greedily by the climate sceptics in the wake of the UEA emails fiasco.
I am however,as always, a little cynical.
