August 2010 was the second hottest August in the 32-year satellite temperature dataset, with a global average temperature that was only a tiny percentage cooler than the record set in August 1998.
According to atmospheric science researcher Dr. John Christy, that difference is well within the error range of the measurement, however, so the two months might as well be tied for the hottest August in 32 years, and he's sure of his data because his team uses microwave sounding units on NOAA and NASA satellites to get accurate temperature readings for almost all regions of the Earth.
