  • 2015 looking like another world record year for the global warming trend.

    The latest global temperature data are breaking records

    Just today, NASA released its global temperature data for the month of May 2015. It was a scorching 0.71°C (1.3°F) above the long-term average. It is also the hottest first five months of any year ever recorded. As we look at climate patterns over the next year or so, it is likely that this year will set a new all-time record. In fact, as of now, 2015 is a whopping 0.1°C (0.17°F) hotter than last year, which itself was the hottest year on record.

    Below, NASA’s annual temperatures are shown. Each year’s results are shown as black dots. Some years are warmer, some are cooler and we never want to put too much emphasis on any single year’s temperature. I have added a star to show where 2015 is so far this year, simply off the chart. The last 12 months are at record levels as well. So far June has been very hot as well, likely to end up warmer than May.

    So why talk about month temperatures or even annual temperatures? Isn’t climate about long-term trends?

    First, there has been a lot of discussion of the so-called ‘pause.’ As I have pointed out many times here and in my own research, there has been no pause at all. We know this first by looking at the rate of energy gain within the oceans. But other recent publications, like ones I’ve written about have taken account of instrument and measurement quality and they too find no pause.

    Second, there has been a lot of discussion of why models were running hotter than surface air temperatures. There was a real divergence for a while with most models suggesting more warming. Well with 2014 and 2015, we see that the models and actual surface temperatures are in very close agreement.

    When we combine surface temperatures with ocean heat content, as seen below, a clear picture emerges. Warming is continuing at a rapid rate.

    Odd. We have had a record cold year until just now. All of my plants and rose that normally bloom in early May are just now starting to bloom.

      The US makes up like four percent of the the earth surface.

      Meanwhile, the rest of the world is heating up.

        Fifty-five million years ago, the Earth was ice-less. Winters were balmy. Palm trees flourished all the way to the poles. As evidenced by fossils, crocodiles and broad-leaved, water-loving plants existed north of the Arctic Circle. This warmer world had warmer oceans, featuring deep ocean temperatures of 12 °C higher than now.

              The point is, what is a normal temperature range for the earth? There isn't one.

                Personal anecdotal experience at one location does not reflect the global data which is cited in this article.

                  The history of annual global temperatures does not relate to a, normal temperature range?, whatever that is. The Climate Change, and Global Warming trends are based on annual global data trends for air and water temperatures over time.

                  'If your head is in the oven and your feet in the freezer, your belly button would be average,' but of course the average is meaningless.

                    Is that your standard reply to anything you disagree with?

                      That's not what I meant. The world didn't burn to a cinder and life still existed just fine.

                          I'm in one of the red zones on your map and it's been a very mild summer so far.

                            That was for May.

                              During the Permian extinction, the world didn't burn to a cinder but life on land was cut back to slime molds.
