July 16, 2014 by Joseph Romm

Temperature Records Monthly


You may recall that the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) reported last month that March-May was the hottest in more than 120 years of record-keeping. Well, the JMA reported Monday that last month was the hottest June in more than 120 years of record-keeping.[read more]

In its most recent State of the Climate Report released on Monday, the NOAA reports that May 2014 was the hottest May on record. This hot May comes on the heals of record heat for April, tying 2010 as the warmest April on record. The previous record for May was also in 2010.[read more]

Hottest Spring Ever

The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) reported Monday that March-May was the hottest in more than 120 years of record-keeping. It was also the hottest May on record. This is especially noteworthy because we’re still waiting for the start of El Niño.[read more]

Climatologist: When Souped-Up Ocean Warming Ends, Global Temperatures Look Set To Rise Rapidly

February 12, 2014 by Joseph Romm

Ocean Temps

The last decade was the hottest on record, and 2010 was the warmest year on record, continuing the long-term trend driven by human emissions. Still, in the past ten years, surface temperatures didn’t appear to warm as fast as many had expected.[read more]

Seeing Over the Horizon: Sharp Rise in Ocean Temperatures in 2013

February 8, 2014 by Tom Schueneman

What the recently stalled polar vortex over much of the eastern half of the United States makes clear is that we humans are, by nature, not well equipped to think globally. At least not when it comes to their physical surroundings. After all, cold is cold.[read more]

Groundhog Decade: We're Stuck In A Movie Where It's Always The Hottest Decade On Record

Hottest Decades

If we keep listening to the anti-science, pro-pollution crowd and their enablers, then eventually people aren’t going to go through this elaborate charade of wondering whether some large rodent in Pennsylvania can predict the weather — the forecast will always be the same, “bloody hot."[read more]

NASA reports hottest January to August on record - August tied for hottest in UAH satellite record*

September 12, 2010 by Joseph Romm

Last month, NASA reported it was the hottest January-July on record, along with a terrific analysis, “July 2010 — What Global Warming Looks Like,” which noted that 2010 is “likely” to be warmest year on record. This month continues the trend of 2010 outpacing previous years, according to NASA: It seems all but certain we will...[read more]

NOAA: Warmest January in both satellite records - Warming is +0.18°C (.32°F) decade

February 16, 2010 by Joseph Romm

Last week, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released its monthly “State of the Climate Global Analysis” for January. We see blowout warming in the satellite temperature record, which is so beloved of the anti-science crowd since they think — incorrectly — it doesn’t show warming.  Note that in UAH, we...[read more]

Temperature of science – never give up

December 21, 2009 by Barry Brook

As the end of 2009 approaches, I have many BraveNewClimate blog posts that are developing behind the scenes — more from the IFR FaD and TCASE series, a guest post by Tom Blees on the natural gas ‘game’, a guest post by a new BNC writer on wind farm planning problems, a report about my upcoming popular book on nuclear power (co-...[read more]

The climate science filibuster

October 28, 2009 by Simon Donner

Over the past couple months, there have been another online kerfuffle about the famous "hockey stick" millennial temperature reconstruction. Namely, Steve McIntrye attempted to show that tree ring reconstructions may have been biased, such that selecting a different set of trees from a nearby site would imply no 20th century warming Tim...[read more]

Must-read NOAA paper smacks down the deniers: Q: “Is there any question that surface temperatures in the United States have been rising rapidly during the last 50 years?” A: “None at all.”

July 7, 2009 by Joseph Romm

Nothing occupies global warming deniers more than trying to prove the U.S. temperature record — a tiny portion of the global temperature record — is not reliable.  Now NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center has issued an excellent Q&A, “Is the U.S. Temperature Record Reliable?” that should settle that question for any objective...[read more]

Hadley Center to delayers (this means you Pielke): We’re warming, not cooling

March 18, 2008 by Joseph Romm

The deniers/delayer-1000s cite recent UK Hadley Center data to promote their “climate is cooling” disinformation. Even Roger Pielke, Jr. is peddling this nonsense with his recent inanely titled post, “Update on Falsification of Climate Predictions.” Falsification? Gimme a break! The 8 warmest years in the 150 global temperature record...[read more]
