According to NOAA, 2016 Marks Three Consecutive Years Of Record Warmth For The Globe

Washington, DC...With a boost from El Nino, 2016 began with a bang. For eight consecutive months, January to August, the globe experienced record warm heat. With this as a catalyst, the 2016 globally averaged surface temperature ended as the highest since record keeping began in 1880, according to scientists from NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI).

The average temperature across global land and ocean surfaces in 2016 was 58.69 degrees F or 1.69 degrees F above the 20th century average. This surpassed last year’s record by 0.07 degrees F. Since the start of the 21st century, the annual global temperature record has been broken five times (2005, 2010, 2014, 2015, and 2016).

Despite the cooling influence of a weak La Nina in the latter part of the year, the year ended with the third warmest December on record for the globe, with an average temperature 1.42 degrees F above the 20th century average.

In a separate analysis of global temperature data released at the same time, scientists from NASA also found 2016 to be the warmest year on record.

More noteworthy findings from 2016:

The globally averaged sea surface temperature was the highest on record, 1.35 degree F above average.

The globally averaged land surface temperature was the highest on record, 2.57 degrees F above average.

North America had its warmest year on record; South America and Africa had their second; Asia and Europe had their third; and Australia had its fifth.

The average Arctic sea ice extent for the year was 3.92 million square miles, the smallest annual average since record-keeping began in 1979.

The average Antarctic sea ice extent for the year was 4.31 million square miles, the second smallest annual average since record-keeping began in 1979.

Front Row Seats To This Event

Arnold has certainly been a place to observe this major change.
When we moved here 30 years ago we were told "No one in Arnold has air conditioning". Now the summers are blistering hot and an air conditioner would be very helpful. We've been able to see the change in the autumn weather. Right now these storms are another sign. If anyone looks at the old pictures of Arnold you can see very high snow walls on highway 4!!

        trump's pick for environmental chief is "not sure" man has changed the climate.
        He does admit the climate is changing.
        98% of scientists agree the change is from man.

        Get ready the denialists on every subject are coming.

        Up is down, down is up in trump world.

        New Trickle Down is coming , remember how well it worked before ? (economic trickle down, not the kind from Russian hookers)
        More tax cuts for those who don't need it.
        One of the main reasons they want to kill the ACA was it had a small tax on the wealthy.
        They want it be even more wealthy, if some die, from no medical care too bad.

        It's Going To Be Great!

This is what happens when the polar cap moves location.
It's happened so many time that they don't keep track of it, and man had not one thing to do with it.

Sorry Gaia-worshippers, truth hurts a little, but it's the truth.

    So the Chem Trails might be a part of it too?
    You do know the CO2 readings in the polar ice cap coincides with warmer climate?
    We are getting up so high in CO2 that the sea levels will rise to the levels not seen in 40,000+ years.

      This can't be assisted by blacktopping over everything in sight or running heaters and air conditionershow at all.

      Climate models have not been even close to accurate, maybe it's time to admit we have no idea what's going on, stop paving everything and pretending driving a Prius is helping matters.

      Did You know areas in Siberia are beyond record cold, as other places that normally don't get Arctic-cold?
      The Earth's magnetic field is in the process of flipping, as it's done many of 1,000's of times before, new regions will replace our current polar regions.

      And man had nothing to do with it, and can't do a thing about it.

      It doesn't take a scientist to know that sometimes it's cold and other times it's hot. I will give you that prediction for FREE!

        Plus, it's not just "a scientist". It is 97% of CLIMATE scientists. If one had a cough and went to 100 pulmonary oncologists, and 97 of them diagnosed lung cancer, I doubt most people would do nothing because 3 of those doctors said it was an allergy. (I bet if only 2 such doctors were consulted and 1 diagnosed cancer, I doubt most would do nothing because of the consequence.)

    How ridiculous, how arrogant are we that we believe we even have the capability of affecting mother nature and this planet Earth. In mankind's brief existence we have had perhaps, only in the past 100 years any impact if any on this planets well being. How arrogant and stupid are we that we actually believe we can affect an entire planet that has survived millions of years of change but we, that believe we are so powerful and destructive, can destroy something so much bigger than we are. This planet will be here long after we are gone...

      Yes, math is nothing if not arrogant. Magical thinking is the only non-arrogant way to understand the natural world.If we could only convince the math-tards. Am I right?

        No, many mathematicians do not believe in the climate models that predict or claim man made climate change.

        It is simple why also, there are too many variables involved to predict or model our climate.

        The sun has been more active in the last decade than ever recorded, nobody can predict or prove what effect this has on our climate.

        There is no studies on the effects of aircraft spewing hot exhaust gases into our atmosphere 35,000 feet in the air.

        Arnold's air conditioning from decades ago is anecdotal and ignores the fact that humans demand a higher degree of comfort, so what may have been tolerable is not now.

        There just is not enough reliable information to identify what is causing any climate change, let alone that we can somehow stop it.

          Many mathematicians? Name a few. Plus, mathematicians aren't the ones to pay attention to. It's the climatologists who have the expertise in the area.

            Oh, climatologists, those folks who would not have a job if they disagree with it because no more grants and funding? Those?

              Maybe a few might do that, but all those 1000s? Nah. You're out there on that illogic to support your view.
