    2012 Saw Warmest September On Record Across The Globe, Says NOAA


    10/15/2012


    From Climate Central's Andrew Freedman:

    According to data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA, the globe recorded its warmest September on record, tying with 2005 for the title. Global surface temperature records stretch all the way back to 1880. September marked the 331st straight month with above average temperatures, and the 36th straight September with a global temperature above the 20th century average.

    The last below-average September temperature was in 1976, when Gerald Ford was President, and the last below-average month for any month of the year occurred in February 1985, during the Reagan Administration.
    The first nine months of 2012 were the eighth warmest such period on record, and barring unusual cold during the October through December period, the year is likely to fall within the top ten warmest years on record globally. In the U.S., the year is on track to be the warmest year on record, after the country experienced its third-warmest summer and warmest spring since records began.

    130 years out of 4,500,000,000?

    Whatever.

    Global warming ended 16 years ago.

    Don't waste your time.. the AGW crowd has no use for science.

    Let's see.. 331 months = 28 years.. That puts us about 1984... A time when according to our Satellite thermometer above -- the earth was CONSISTENTLY BELOW the '81-10' average.. Did not consistently EXCEED that average until the LATE 90's..

    Of course -- if you use SURFACE measurements and use the 1880 to present average -- EVERYTHING for the past 60 years pretty much exceeds that "average". The earth HAS warmed from 1880. But unfortunately for you --- the amount of CO2 that would EXPLAIN that increase doesn't really kick in til the 1960s or so.. So we should really be looking at comparing over that shorter period -- shouldn't we? If the answer to ALL of this is CO2..

    Are you claiming Sept 2012 was not the warmest in recorded history or-----or are you claiming records were being kept as far back as 4.5 billion years ago-----you do know there's no scientific evidence that life even existed on this planet 4.5 billion years ago don't you?




    The U.S. continued to suffer from one of its worst droughts on record, with the majority of the contiguous U.S. seeing some form of drought conditions during the month. In addition, eastern Europe, including Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, and Romania suffered from drought conditions. In India, unusually dry weather was ameliorated when the Asian monsoon finally provided generous rains, albeit much later than average.

    September also brought the lowest Arctic sea ice extent on record. Studies have shown that manmade global warming is the cause of the majority of sea ice loss that has occurred since the beginning of the satellite record in 1979. More than 4.57 million square miles of ice melted in 2012, NOAA said, which is the size of the entire U.S. and Mexico combined. The six lowest sea ice extents have all occurred in the past six years, a sign of the rapid disappearance of summer sea ice in the Far North, a development that may have far-reaching implications for weather patterns in the northern hemisphere in particular.

    OMG!!!

    We better get the Kooks planning that mass suicide soon, before the CO2 from all this hot air really starts to do damage.

    the temperature data has been significantly adjusted (colder in the past, warmer recently). if you take away, say 0.2C, the highest Sept ever is no longer even in the running.
