World Temperature Map for March

For those of you who like to see the graphical depictions of global warming in progress, here is the image for March. 

The short summary is that the three month period, January - March 2010, was the hottest three month period on record and March 2010 is the hottest March on record. 

The record temperatures we're seeing now are especially impressive because we've been in the "deepest solar minimum in nearly a century." The solar minimum now appears to be over, so we can expect warming from both increased CO2 and increased solar radiation over the next few years.
