Despite CO2 Reduction, May Is Reported To Be Hottest May Ever

Hey, remember when the climate cultists claimed that CO2 was the control knob? Oh, and that there was a massive reduction of CO2 output during lockdown?

Last month was the hottest May on record, as the world creeps closer to a dangerous threshold

Last month was the hottest May on record worldwide, a European climate agency has reported, with temperatures in Siberia rising 10 degrees Celsius (18 degrees Fahrenheit) above their normal levels.

Globally, May was 0.63 degrees Celsius warmer than the average May between 1981 and 2010, making it the warmest May in this data record, the Copernicus Climate Change Service said.

Apparently, history only goes back to 1981. Usually the Warmists at least use a time frame going back into the 1960’s, when the world was in the midst of a slight cooling period, not during a period when it was warming (like happens during a Holocene warm period). Notice the difference between the headline and the part I’ve marked in bold.

And when compared with pre-industrial figures, their recordings indicate that the world is creeping dangerously close to the temperature threshold that international organizations warn would be so devastating to the planet if exceeded.

The Copernicus figures correlate to a 1.26 degree Celsius rise on pre-industrial levels for May. Global temperatures must be kept from rising above 1.5 degrees Celsius on those levels to avoid major impacts on the climate, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has concluded.

Yeah, they keep warning, but none of them are willing to practice what they preach.

Anyhow, it may have been very warm in Russia, but, I had my heat off and on during May. I forgot one time and woke up to 61 in the house. That was more of March weather.

If CO2 is truly the control knob, one would expect a brief reduction of temperatures, or at least no increase, right? It couldn’t possibly be something else in charge, like during the rest of the Earth’s history, could it?

More: ran across this from Paul Homewood while setting up the IAYS post, in which he is discussing a BBC report about it being the hottest May ever for the world and the UK

I make no comment about the global numbers, but would simply point out that none of the official agencies have released their data for May. The BBC claim comes from Copernicus, the EU agency, not regarded as a reliable source.

However the BBC claim about the UK is hopelessly wide of the mark. According to the Met Office, last month was only the 15th warmest May since 1884, and was not even as warm as 1893 and 1911!

That’s why Copernicus wants to use the 1981-2010 figure.

    That makes sense if you don’t think about it. Even if there was a “CO2 Reduction” it wouldn’t support your point would it?

    CO2 EMISSIONS have decreased, not atmospheric CO2. See the difference? CO2 is STILL being added to the atmosphere faster than it’s being removed. See how that means that ATMOSPHERIC CO2 is still increasing, just not as fast as the quarter before?

    Teach is becoming increasingly desperate and irrational.

    Also, there is significant internal variability.

      Ah, there y’all go again.
      Another statement without substance.

      Can’t quantify significant or variability but you kiddiez try so hard to remain relevant.

        This would be the science paid for by CHINA to find the world is dying because of fossil fuels while CHINA destroys the planet with insane amounts of pollution, co2 emissions, the burning of coal and the 3 gorges damn which killed a ton of endangered species and is on the verge of collapsing.

        but not to fear. It is the USA that is the evil of this world.

        Zach comes to join his commie brother and alter ego 50 center to join in the bashing of America while truly ignoring those paying his bills.

        • Klemdadiddlehopper says:

          The report is already flawed. It reports Siberia and Russia are the hottest on record.

          So what.

          Next year they will be diluged in freezing cold and snow out the wahzoo while New Zealand will face a warm period.

          Has always happened and will always happen. But to make America great again I propose the following actions be taken immediately.

          All fossil fuels be banned for use in the united states immediately.

          All police be fired and Rapid response social welfare teams replace them.

          The national Guard be disbanded.

          The Us Military’s budget be reduced to just 2 percent of our current budget.

          All White people give up their homes to Blacks and Hispanics here illegaly.

          The borders opened up and ICE and Border Patrol be eliminated.

          Every person in America will be given a 5000 dollar a month guaranteed income printed from the treasury.

          Anyone over 100k per year will pay 90 percent taxes.

          Corporations still in existence will pay 60 percent taxes.

          Planes, trains and automobiles will be banned.

          All power generation will be done via solar and wind.

          All white people must be immediately put into reeducation camps and reeducated. 50 center and Zach first. To you know show us how to keep the stiff upper lip.

          No republican will ever hold office again.

          Red states will be taken over by Blue states and taught how to behave properly.

          The constitution will be rewritten by Berkley Professors and Antifa.

          There that should solve AGW.

          Klemdadiddlehopper: It is the USA that is the evil of this world.

          Hardly. The U.S. is still the most important member of the democratic world. The U.S. has made many mistakes, needless wars, a hapless pandemic response, two economic debacles in just over a decade, and now the militarized response to largely peaceful protests. However, the willingness of the American people to speak out in spite of all this is heartening.

          • Liljeffyatemypuppy says:

            …the militarized response to largely peaceful protests.

            There y’all go again.

            Guess burning, looting, breaking shop windows, torching cars, killing police officers… qualify as largely peaceful protests.

            Go [email protected] yourselves, kiddiez.
            You’re not fooling anyone but the middle school mean girls.

          So you think the world’s climate scientists are paid by CHINA and all the data are corrupted? And you further believe it’s all part of a CHINESE plot to DOMINATE the world.

          It’s true that China, with nearly 20% of the world’s population, and undergoing rapid and radical modernization, has turned into the major CO2 polluter nation on Earth, but understand that much of the CO2 in the atmosphere came from the US and Europe.

          All power sources have advantages and disadvantages, including hydroelectric dams like the massive one on the Yangtze. As you know, fossil fuels have disadvantages as well. No power source has zero cost.

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Teach argues against himself. This happens often in conservative discussions where writers are forced to dodge the facts.

    Teach’s thesis is that since CO2 is “dropping” why is this May the warmest?

    Later he offers proof that May ISN”T the warmest, falsifying his own thesis.

    Which is it?

    Zachriel: Also, there is significant internal variability.

    The Puppy: Can’t quantify significant or variability… and laugh out loud go fukk yourself Charming argument.

    Just because there is variability doesn’t invalidate the data. There is variability in the global temperature data (especially month to month) and less so in the CO2 data (all data has some degree of variability, which is why scientists assess it). Few people still claim the Earth isn’t warming or that CO2 isn’t rising.

    • Zachriel says:

      Can’t quantify significant or variability

      Of course much of it can be quantified. Start with the simple; diurnal and seasonal variability; then work your way up to the Pacific Decadal, North Atlantic, and El Niño Southern Oscillations.

        Y’all still trying really hard to make sense.
        Keep it up kiddiez.
