The State of the Climate 2016 has been released.

Some highlights from International report confirms 2016 was warmest year on record for the globe


Greenhouse gases were the highest on record.
...
Global surface temperature was the highest on record.
...
Average sea surface temperature was the highest on record.
...
Global upper-ocean heat content neared record high.
...
Global sea level was the highest on record.

And from the abstract

Alpine glacier retreat continued around the globe, and
preliminary data indicate that 2016 is the 37th consecutive
year of negative annual mass balance.

Can't swing a dead cat without a report of fudged data by our masters. See Australia this week, I remember the great ice age of 1976, we we're all going to die!

Wow!! They're really going to upset President Trump.

As I note that it isn't quite the middle of August ... and the temperature is currently in the 70s ... and the forecast shows nothing higher than the mid-80s for the next ten days ... all lows in the 60s (except 59 for tomorrow).

Actually......

Your low summer temperatures corroborate the record warm that the OP posted.

What you are experiencing is one of two possibilities: polar blasts as the North Pole melts away OR a major disruption in the North Atlantic current.

The second one means an ice age is coming took the Northern Hemisphere if true.

And yes, it actually is the CO2 emissions nobody wants to believe in that is causing all this. It will initially cause warming (as we are seeing) then ask the ice Arctic melting will dilute the salinity of the sea, disrupting conveyor currents in the water. This in turn will majorly change weather patterns and allow more cold weather storms to develop.

Mother Nature has a plan to get us all back for sullying our own nest. And that plan involves getting rid of a LOT of humans. She's just starting to enact it now...

Total B.S. Past data was manipulated to make the newer data look as though global warming is true. Bill Nye the science lie is not someone you should be getting your info from.a reply to: pthena

Before venturing into the realms of belief, I should first state that the findings of 500 authors who worked on State of the Climate 2016 is data driven, and not 10 year old projections driven, nor belief driven.


35 Roy W. Spencer, Principal Research Scientist in Climatology, University of Alabama, Huntsville, award-winning NASA climate scientist, U.S. Science Team Leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer aboard NASA’s Aqua Satellite, and author of Climate Confusion: How Global Warming Hysteria Leads to Bad Science, Pandering Politicians, and Misguided Policies that Hurt the Poor
Prominent Endorsers of An Evangelical Declaration on Global Warming


An Evangelical Declaration on Global Warming

1.We believe Earth and its ecosystems—created by God’s intelligent design and infinite power and sustained by His faithful providence —are robust, resilient, self-regulating, and self-correcting, admirably suited for human flourishing, and displaying His glory. Earth’s climate system is no exception. Recent global warming is one of many natural cycles of warming and cooling in geologic history

2.We believe abundant, affordable energy is indispensable to human flourishing... With present technologies, fossil and nuclear fuels are indispensable if energy is to be abundant and affordable.

3.We believe mandatory reductions in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions, achievable mainly by greatly reduced use of fossil fuels, will greatly increase the price of energy and harm economies.

4.We believe such policies will harm the poor more than others because the poor spend a higher percentage of their income on energy and desperately need economic growth to rise out of poverty and overcome its miseries.

WHAT WE DENY

1.We deny that Earth and its ecosystems are the fragile and unstable products of chance, and particularly that Earth’s climate system is vulnerable to dangerous alteration because of minuscule changes in atmospheric chemistry. Recent warming was neither abnormally large nor abnormally rapid. There is no convincing scientific evidence that human contribution to greenhouse gases is causing dangerous global warming.
...
3.We deny that carbon dioxide—essential to all plant growth—is a pollutant. Reducing greenhouse gases cannot achieve significant reductions in future global temperatures, and the costs of the policies would far exceed the benefits.

4.We deny that such policies, which amount to a regressive tax, comply with the Biblical requirement of protecting the poor from harm and oppression.

That's what Roy W. Spencer believes.
-----------
Now for what I believe:

The Earth, prior to the Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) extinction event, was not suitable to human life. A mass extinction event occurred which due to its cataclysmic nature(such as asteroid strike) resulted in mass quantities (billions of tons) of carbon being sequestered in the Earth, removed from the active biosphere.

In effect, the Earth had been terraformed into an environment conducive to the rise of human life.

The removal and burning of fossil fuels from sequestration returns those massive amounts of carbon back into the active biosphere. Humans are actively terraforming Earth back into an environment not suitable to human life.



And I believe
These are the days of lasers in the jungle
Lasers in the jungle somewhere
Staccato signals of constant information
a loose affiliation of millionaires
And billionaires, and baby

To the Evangelical statement's position that fossil fuels must be burned for the poor:
I saw a piece on Television; People in Cambodia with solar panel provided electricity. It would have been cost prohibitive to bring an electric grid into the jungle from a fossil fuel burning plant.

I don't see Bill Nye listed as an author. Does he have an alias that I'm not aware of?

I will never understand why there are still people out there that do not believe in climate change?

Humans have been injecting chemicals into the air for centuries, have been destroying natural resources since we could and they still think it is a hoax?

I would say 99% of "Scientists" against climate change are usually paid by the destroyers of natural resources, in order to continue to do so for monetary gain while the other 1% are not real scientists.

It is not a hard concept to understand, constant chemicals in the air and destroying natural resources will have an effect on the environment and would happen much faster than nature would do it.
