March 15, 2017

February 2017 (click here) was the second warmest February in 137 years of modern record-keeping, according to a monthly analysis of global temperatures by scientists at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York.

Last month was 1.1 degrees Celsius warmer than the mean February temperature from 1951-1980. The two top February temperature anomalies have occurred during the past two years.

February 2016 was the hottest on record, at 1.3 degrees Celsius warmer than the February mean temperature.

February 2017's temperature was 0.20 degrees Celsius cooler than February 2016....

February 2016 was 1.3 degrees C warmer. (2.3 degrees F)

February 2017 was 1.1 degrees C warmer. (1.98 degrees F)

Often people laugh and state there is a lot of fuss over nothing, but, those are global temperatures. The entire Earth's troposphere is hotter, not just the house here you live. That results in melting glaciers and an uncomfortably warm climate. These temperatures cause severe storms and droughts. This is not a minor temperature shift, this is a shift in the entire troposphere of Earth. That is an enormous about of heat.

Kindly notice in 1880 as the Industrial Revolution was just in it's beginnings. The climate was very different. This heating is dangerous. The forests of the 1880s were different, too. They existed and were allowed to grow to enormous size.
