### One ton of a snake

Mirror (U.K.), a blog: a snake whose weight is 2500 pounds was found in the South American rainforest. It lived 60 million years ago and it's so big because it was very happy because the local temperatures were between 30 and 34 °C, five degrees above the present values.

RSS MSU released their January 2009 temperatures. The global anomaly was 0.322 °C, i.e. 0.15 °C warmer than the December 2008 anomaly and the warmest reading since August 2007. In the mid troposphere, the reading went from negative numbers to +0.105, the warmest figure since October 2007.
