2016 earth’s warmest on record

Posted by | January 18, 2017 14:30 | Filed under: Planet

A global heat record has been set for the third year in a row according to the World Meteorological Organization.

To come up with its figures the WMO combined global temperature records from various sources, including NOAA, NASA, the UK Met Office and the European weather and climate center ECMWF.

Temperatures over the Earth’s continents and oceans in 2016 were 1.1 degree Celsius (1.98 degrees Fahrenheit) above the pre-industrial average. That means we are already a majority of the way to the 1.5-degree warming goal set at the Paris Climate Agreement in 2015.

    The actual claimed increase is 1/100th of a degree and the margin of error is 1/10th of a degree. Congrats! You’ve been suckered again.

    Every year since 1977 has been warmer than the 20th century average. Today we’re +1.7° F above the 20th century average. Plus 1.98° F via the industrial age, 80% caused by human burning of fossil fuels, 20% caused by human deforestation. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0ea58000850b8f4c4667cd23647893a56681b6b29c54ffc243fb8b9daba88318.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b2c61831d501f74c8f618a4d53e132cbe1e20f8de007731b2922867c80c3ed58.png
