2010 Hottest Year On Record (So Far)

2010 Hottest Year On Record (So Far)

And that’s according to NASA. Let’s see the climate change deniers argue with those nerds. “We conclude that global temperature continued to rise rapidly in the past decade” and “there has been no reduction in the global warming trend of 0.15-0.20°C/decade that began in the late 1970s.”

Here’s the full report on the NASA site.

The yearly running mean global temperature has reached a new record in 2010, and all that despite the recent minimum of solar irradiance.

NOAA just released their monthly El Niño/Southern oscillation update, which notes:

“The majority of models predict ENSO-neutral conditions (between -0.5°C to +0.5°C in the Niño-3.4 region) through early 2011. However, over the last several months, a growing number of models, including the NCEP Climate Forecast System (CFS), indicate the onset of La Niña conditions during June-August 2010.”

I guess you’ll be needing these Tips To Stay Cool Without A/C for a while longer.

    Get this NASA article up yuz and then tell me the climate models are good and that CO2 is bad.

    This NASA article says that CO2 has a cooling effect. It also says they don’t understand the dynamics of the atmospheric systems. What hope for credence do current climate models have therefore?

    Anything coming from NASA’s GISS should be read with a big grain of dinosaur salt. They are just doing the Jones trick of manipulating data.

    Ocean foraminifera have been providing paleoclimate data for some time and have been used by paleontologists in paleoclimate reconstructions, well before climate change became such a controversy for some people. Yes, climate has been known to occillate between extremes of heat and cold, nothing new there, but these past cyclical fluctuations between extremes took *hundreds of thousands* of years. That’s what appears to be different now, and that’s what indicates that human activity is playing a role.

    NASA, climatologists, meteorologists, and all the other global warming theorists have just as good a chance of being right as they are of being wrong. Climate changes occur over millennium, and there is more involved than just the closed system that we call earth. The arrogance of some scientists who think they have the answers to what ails our environment, ought to remember and state that global warming is only a theory describing an environmental system that they have only been studying for a short period of human history. Any reliable scientist would agree that many times actual cause and effect can be misinterpreted, and that there just isn’t enough data to presume that human beings are the only reasonable explanation for global climate change. Wouldn’t it be a kick if all of a sudden we went through extreme global cooling and plunged into another ice age…maybe as a result of reducing greenhouse gasses?

    I’d like to point to the fact the article you site to discredit NASA has as it’s proof an argument from authority based on a argumentum ad ignorantiam. IE he doesn’t show how the shifting mass of the plate in the earthquake can’t affect the angular momentum of the earth. on the other hand the people at NASA show how the mass moving downward would redistribute deformable matter and change the angular momentum of the earth. thus his claim can be dismissed and so can yours that nasa isn’t a reliable source of data.

    Forgive my late arrival but data only arrives in its own time.

    Going through this claim I can now say:

    1) Hottest year is by a fraction of a degree by their figures
    2) Hottest since when exactly? And if so then are direct measurements comparable with earlier proxy ones?
    3) It now turns out the work put into gathering this data was based on selecting specific surface temperatures, ones which the NOAA already accepted were 90% inaccurate in the US alone due to urban heat islands.
    4) If you look at satellite data there is still no increase since 1998.

    So why was this particular figure picked up and run with by the media while it had so many anomalies in its creation? Could it possibly be they wanted data which supported an existing preference?

    “I’d like to see people who don’t believe in global warming argue this…”

    NASA Administrator Charles Bolden is a well-known climate truther. Which side of this issue do you expect him to publish on?

    Anyone who uses twitter to issue a challenge against another person’s opinion is not only chicken s, but also a total d bag. That’s you, Ashton.
