2014 Warmest Year On record

Though the official numbers aren't in for December, it's likely that 2014 will go down as the planet's hottest year on record.
Data from according to the United States' National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Met Office and the World Meteorological Association agree that the combined land and ocean surface temperatures hit new highs last year to rewrite the global warming record books.
In Australia, for the second year in a row, Australians saw heat records topple as temperatures soared higher than 120F (49C) and into the record books.
The Global Ocean sea surface temperature was 1.13F (0.63 C) above average of 60.7 F (16.0 C), surpassing the previous record and in Siberia temperatures were 9F (5C) above average and ice on the Ob River began to break up weeks earlier than normal.
The drought in California were not aided by the regions highest temperatures since record-keeping began in 1895 and Northern Europe sweated in the warmest year spring for a century while despite the wettest winter for 250 years, England was the warmest it had been since 1659, and the warmest same period for the Netherlands since 1706.
Weather records are tumbling and we are only at the beginning of the climate changes coming our way.

Did that five year old I sent to explain climate change to you not turn up? I will arrange to send you another one.

if you can quote "several heat records broken" then why can't I quote "several cold records broken"?

I will make sure the kid mentions the bit about climate change taking what is already there and ramping it up.

clever strategy. all data supports global warming.

> data that shows global warming is abnormal and caused by humans is proof.

> data that would conflict with global warming in the eyes of a sane person are not really conflicting data because record cold is also due to global warming… my grandmother would say “don’t piss down my back and tell me it is raining…”

funny how you can see self-interest in business owners, but don't see it in others... ha ha ha

> you might want to start questioning what scientists on a government payroll say when their future pay is based on continued stipends provided via government largesse. But then again you might not.

You apparently take your global warming information from tots.

We just use tots to explain it to adults who can't grasp it when a grown up explains it.
