Those of shivering through a long, cold winter may not believe it, but this January was the fourth or third warmest globally, since temperature records have been kept.
Don't believe it. NOAA says so!
Indeed, January, 2014 was a full 2 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than the average January in the 20th century. Don't expect to see these facts on Fox News or on the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal. Instead, at those outlets, viewers and readers will get a steady diet of misinformation created by a stew of omissions, fringe opinion, and outright falsehoods.
