Global Climate Change Is Real, Data Shows June 2010 Hottest Ever Recorded

July 17, 2010

As if we need further confirmation.

Last month was the hottest June ever recorded worldwide and the fourth consecutive month that the combined global land and sea temperature records have been broken, according to the US government’s climate data centre.

The figures released last night by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) suggest that 2010 is now on course to be the warmest year since records began in 1880.

The trend to a warmer world is now incontrovertible. According to NOAA, June was the 304th consecutive month with a combined global land and surface temperature above the 20th-century average. The last month with below-average temperatures was February 1985. Each of the 10 warmest average global temperatures recorded since 1880 have occurred in the last 15 years with the previous warmest first half of a year in 1998.

    Here is the source I used for my post:

    “Marc Morano, a global-warming skeptic who edits the Climate Depot website, says the government “is playing the climate fear card by hyping predictions and cherry-picking data.” Joe D’Aleo, a meteorologist who co-founded The Weather Channel, disagrees, too. He says oceans are entering a cooling cycle that will lower temperatures. He says too many of the weather stations NOAA uses are in warmer urban areas. “The only reliable data set right now is satellite,” D’Aleo says. He says NASA satellite data shows the average temperature in June was 0.43 degrees higher than normal. NOAA says it was 1.22 degrees higher.”

    GB, it is most clear that you have no idea at all of what you speak on this matter. You never even looked at the figures released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. As such, unless you stop the stupid comments just to get posted I am afraid some changes will be made. I have been down this road before, and I have been a gentleman about your postings, but there are limits. And you have met it, and been warned.

    Part of the problem is that boss places the stations where readings are taken in metting areas where the temps are going to be hotter. False readings equals false data.

    You do understand that extreme weather of any kind is an effect of global warming?

    Oh my God. Yes its burning. But this don’t confirm global warming 100%. Wait until winter time, its going to be one of the coldest winters ever.

    And yet we don’t see super duper hurricanes, large sea level rises or pervasive droughts as predicted by IPCC IV.

    Welcome to California weather…everyone.
