Lucia was quick off the mark with RSS June results. RSS June was 0.075 deg C (reference 1979-1998). The graph shows somewhat of a decline from earlier in the year.
In a joint statement, realclimate authors Gavin Schmidt, Michael Mann, Stefan Rahmstorf and Eric Steig noted their disappointment with market performance. However, Rahmstorf observed that, if these results were embedded in a 15-dimensional manifold, the results were still “worse than we thought”. Michael Mann said that the decline in June RSS values was disinformation from fossil fuel interests and issued a fatwa on those responsible. [Note to realclimate readers – this is a satirical comment; they did not really make the above statements.]
