How’s that global warming working out for you? [updated]

Just thought you’d appreciate an update on global mean surface temperatures over the last decade, as measured by NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies in the US, and the Hadley Centre for Climate Research in the UK.

See all that “dangerous” warming, huh. See the out-of-control trend.

Is it any wonder the likes of Australia’s Julia Gillard is being savaged for using the global warming bugaboo to introduce a new tax?

UPDATE: Thanks to Blunt for the cartoon, and John Boy & Julia for the fiction-based shakedown:

It would be useful to have the specific source of the data set used here (not just the website - the Wood For Trees site allows you to turn any of the datasets on the site into graphs). And yes, I know the climate alarmists just quote whatever data they choose without attribution but we on the sceptical side need to be better than that.

@Kiwiwit: Yes, I know what you mean.

If you look at the top left of each of the graphs, you can see the data set used in each plot.

GISTemp Land-Ocean Global Mean series
HADCRUT3 variance-adjusted global mean series.

And as you say, you can head to Wood For Trees to try reproducing the graphs for your own chosen series.
