The Global Warming Skeptics Won't Like This One

From a about to be published paper in Science by Konstantin Vinnikov and Norman Grody:

We have analyzed the global tropospheric temperature for 1978-2002 using passive microwave sounding data from the NOAA series of polar orbiters and the EOS/Aqua satellite. To accurately retrieve the climatic trend we combined the satellite data with an analytic model of temperature that contains three different time scales: a linear trend and functions that define the seasonal and diurnal cycles. Our analysis shows a trend of +0.22-0.26 K/10yr, consistent with the global warming trend derived from surface meteorological stations.
