      June warmest EVER recorded globally as forecasters warn 2015 set to be a record breaking year


      • Comes as New York issues air quality warning as temperatures rocket
      • Experts say 'off the charts' weather now a monthly occurrence


      Earth dialed the heat up in June, smashing warm temperature records for both the month and the first half of the year.

      Off-the-charts heat is 'getting to be a monthly thing,' said Jessica Blunden, a climate scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

      'This is the third month this year that we've broken the monthly record.'

      'There is almost no way that 2015 isn't going to be the warmest on record,' she added.

      NOAA calculated that the world's average temperature in June hit 61.48 degrees Fahrenheit (16.33 Celsius), breaking the old record set last year by 0.22 degrees (.12 degrees Celsius). Usually temperature records are broken by one or two one-hundredths of a degree, not nearly a quarter of a degree, Blunden said.

      And the picture is even more dramatic when the entire year is considered.

      The first six months of 2015 were one-sixth of a degree warmer than the old record, set in 2010, averaging 57.83 degrees (14.35 Celsius).

      The old record for the first half of the year was set in 2010, the last time there was an El Nino - a warming of the central Pacific Ocean that changes weather worldwide.

      A WARMING WORLD

      In their annual, detailed physical of Earth's climate, scientists say the world is in increasingly hot and rising water.

      The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the American Meteorological Society's annual state of the climate report delves into the details of already reported record-smashing warmth globally in 2014, giving special attention to the world's oceans.

      NOAA climate monitoring chief Deke Arndt, co-editor of the report, said the seas last year 'were just ridiculous.'


      But in 2010, the El Nino petered out.

      This year, forecasters are predicting this El Nino will get stronger, not weaker.

      'If that happens, it's just going to go off the charts,' Blunden said.

      June was warm nearly all over the world, with exceptional heat in Spain, Austria, parts of Asia, Australia and South America.

      Southern Pakistan had a June heat wave that killed more than 1,200 people - which according to an international database would be the eighth deadliest in the world since 1900.

      In May, a heat wave in India claimed more than 2,000 lives and ranked as the fifth deadliest on record.

      May and March also broke monthly heat records, which go back 136 years.

      Earth has broken monthly heat records 24 times since the year 2000, but hasn't broken a monthly cold record since 1916.

      'This is what anthropogenic global warming looks like, just hotter and hotter,' said Jonathan Overpeck, co-director of the Institute of the Environment at the University of Arizona.

      We had a heatwave in Scotland in June. I remember it distinctly, it was from 10 am to 4.30pm on the 16th June.

      Otherwise, this has been the coldest 'Summer' I can remember.

      The article above includes some images taken from NOAA, possibly from their press release.

      The NOAA article is here: https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/summa.../global/201506

      A couple of the images:





      As you can see from the crude blocks in the first image, the UK in general didn't experience any significant change in the average temperature, but Scotland is on the edge of a cooler region. In the second graphic NOAA is reporting that Scandinavia was below average.

      I'd love to say the in England we have been basking in the sun, but the truth is that we've had plenty of cloudy days. Thankfully not too many wet ones.

      Strange, isn't it? "Warming" gets the headlines but . . .

      Yet in the graphic above it is the Antarctic whch is better off and it actually states that the ice in the Arctic this year is the 3rd smallest on record.

      I love this whole debate, which seems use information very selectively. Did anybody mention:

      https://www.newscientist.com/article...than-expected/

      and this:

      Stunning satellite images show summer ice cap is thicker and covers 1.7million square kilometres MORE than 2 years ago...despite Al Gore's prediction it would be ICE-FREE by now | Daily Mail Online

      (though please note the source of the quote)

      The science has been corrupted by the huge amount of money being thrown at it by vested interests, who aren't interested in the results that don't support their position.

      Obviously something has changed and it looks like things will continue to change.

      What does this all mean?

      There are a lot of people who live near the sea and in areas that could become flooded if sea levels were to rise.

      For anyone living in the Pennines, buy lots of land now. It'll sure become valuable when we all have to move there. You might wish to build a slipway too!

      In the mean time, start investing in sun tan lotions.
