Earth got so hot last month that federal scientists struggled to find words, describing temperatures as "astronomical," ''staggering" and "strange." They warned that the climate may have moved into a new and hotter neighborhood.
This was not just another of the drumbeat of 10 straight broken monthly global heat records, triggered by a super El Nino and man-made global warming. February 2016 obliterated old marks by such a margin that it was the most above-normal month since meteorologists started keeping track in 1880, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The old record was set just last December and the last three months have been the most above-normal months on record, said NOAA climate scientist Jessica Blunden. And it's not just NOAA. NASA, which uses different statistical techniques, as well as a University of Alabama Huntsville team and the private Remote Sensing System team, which measure using satellites, also said February 2016 had the biggest departure from normal on record.
But remember kids, man made global warming is only a myth.
I think it has become crystal clear that we are no longer in any position to stop global warming, or really to significantly slow it down, now it would seem to me that our only recourse is to adequately prepare to protect our species from what comes next.
Also if I had my choice I would put politicians like Senator Roy Blunt, Jim Inhofe, and Alaska's own Congressman Don Young, just to name a few, out in the middle of the Mojave Desert so that they could enjoy the temperature changes that their denial of peer reviewed science helped to usher in.
