The global mean temperature for May 2008 is reported to be 14.39C, or 0.35 Centigrade degrees cooler than in May of 2007 when it was 14.74C. The six-month moving average temperature in May 2008 was 14.4733C, or 0.3534 Centigrade degrees cooler than the corresponding value for May of 2007 when it was 14.8267C. It appears that the planet has a mind of its own and has embarked on a cooling trend despite all those greenhouse gases that human activity has emitted and a runaway global warming scenario past the tipping point that the IPCC had predicted. The global warmists are being rather quiet about these data. Had temperature differences of this magnitude been in the other direction there would have been plenty of noise.
