Oh, Noes, July Was The Hottest July In 4.5 Billion Years!!!!!!

We’re doomed, doomed I tell you, all because you, dear reader, refused to allow Government to regulate your entire life

(USA Today) July was the hottest month worldwide since records began being kept in 1880, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced Thursday.

The temperature in July, when averaged for all locations around the planet, was 61.86 degrees, topping the previous hottest months of July 1998 and July 2010. (snip)

This meshes with data from NASA and the Japan Meteorological Administration released earlier this week. NASA said temperatures in July 2015 beat the previous record in July 2011 by .036 degrees.

I don’t know about you, but that .036F suddenly makes me sweat profusely. It makes it too hot to golf, and turns swimming pools into hot tubs!

Poor Eric. He’s roundly abused, as pointed out at Twitchy.

None of this proves mostly/solely anthropogenic causation, just something that happens during a Holocene warm period, as records show.

Anyhow, regarding that doomy warmth

(Jo Nova) NOAA has a press release out being picked up around the world. For example, the DailyMail, UK, is saying July was the hottest month since records began in 1880 as heatwaves swept the Earth’s countries and oceans. Other silly tabloids have headlines about this being the hottest July in 4,000 years, as if we have even the remotest idea what the average July global temperature was in the days of Plato.

Better data shows July this year is the hottest since way back in… 2014. It’s not 4,000 years, not 135 years, it’s the hottest July since the last one.

We only have 30 years of good climate data: the satellites tell us the pause is real, and last month’s summer temperatures is not a record anything. According to the UAH and RSS global satellites, lower troposphere averages for July 2014 were 0.30C and 0.34C, compared to July 2015 of 0.28C. Even, June 2015 was hotter (UAH, 0.35C; RSS, 0.39C).
July 2015 is not even the hottest month since June.

In other words, what we’re seeing is more over-wrought hysteria, meant to scare people, and journalists aren’t even bothering with research. Just parroting press releases. And none of it proves anthropogenic causation.

Nor do any of the journalists wonder why members of the Cult of Climastrology mostly refuse to give up their own big carbon footprints.

    July can’t be hot since Teach has proven time and again that the Earth HASN’T WARMED FOR 18 YEARS AND 23.2 MONTHS! or something.

    Over 90% of scientists understand that the current rapid warming period is caused by CO2 we’re adding to the atmosphere.

    Why is July (and 2015 and 2016 will be) so warm? The Earth is warming steadily AND some of this heat that has accumulated in the Pacific is being released to the atmosphere via an El Nino event.

    Remember The Ocean at My Heat? The ocean is now barfing some back.

    Just wondering, who was recording the temp. 4.5 billion years ago?

    “Just wondering, who was recording the temp. 4.5 billion years ago?” Good one Tim! It was Accu Weather of course.
    I am fairly certain that the earth has been both hotter and colder in the 4.5 billion year time span mentioned. And with all of the volcanic activity we know helped to shape our current planet, probably pretty toxic here and there.
    I am only happy to be alive and living in the period we are currently experiencing.

      Trish sounds like maybe you were spacing out during science class
      There are many ways that scientists can determine temps from the distant pass
      Your statement is as silly as saying ” how do scientists know how old the Earth is. Before we invented clovks and calendars”
      When you get time check wiki for a simple answer

  4. John says:

    Gee Teach how is it that the temps keep going up here on planet Earth when the Sun is giving off less energy ? If the Sun is cool why are we hot? Could it be greenhouse gases?

  5. Trish Mac says:

    No John, wasn’t spacing out in Science class. It’s a little something called tongue in cheek. I wouldn’t expect someone of your obvious superior intellect to be able to discern subtle humor, or any humor at all for that matter.

    “July was the 51st warmest since 1895 in the US. The two hottest July’s were 1901 and 1936”

    John- “There are many ways scientists can determine temps from the distant past.” And John answers exactly like a climate astrologist would. Nutcase Holthaus said “climate change is changing earth at a pace not seen in 4.5 billion years.” The climate change he’s talking about is temp records from only 1880 or alleged CO2 change since about 1940. We have no comparable 135 or 70 year records for him to compare it to, as someone else said above. And John, there aren’t any ways to compare 135 year temp records to the past because….there weren’t any thermometers before 1880. John, you and your cult members do realize, I hope, that as far as monthly temps are concerned, even if by magic scientists could go back further in time, the most they could go back would only be several thousand years, because before then……there weren’t any “months of July”, because our calendar had yet to be invented, so there’d be no way of knowing when “July”, or any other month, was.

    Deniers don’t trust thermometers since they yield results the Deniers don’t like. So even if there were thermometers 4 billion years ago they wouldn’t believe the results. Their latest crush is on one of the satellite systems (RSS) which shows little warming. The satellite systems do not use thermometers (Monckton lied to you).

    The climate of 4 billion years is irrelevant to humans. Also irrelevant are the climates of 400 million years ago, 40 million years ago and even 4 million years ago.

    Human civilizations are hardly more than 10 thousand years old. Call me selfish, but my concern is for humans.

    Yes, the climate has changed before, but never by magic. There is always a physical/chemical mechanism. For example, the current rapid warming is being caused by the increased CO2 in the atmosphere. Increased CO2 is not the only mechanism for climate changes – Milankovich cycles, smashing asteroids, volcanism, plate tectonics can also – but the current warming period is caused by CO2.
