NASA’s Gavin Schmidt on 2016 Record Warmth

January 16, 2017

Carbon Brief:

On Wednesday, the world’s three major meteorological organisations will reveal how global temperature in 2016 stacked up against previous years. Given exceptional warmth in most months, it is all but guaranteed that scientists will confirm 2016 as the hottest year on record.

    Nice talk and short informative video by Gavin Schmidt on 2016 and the state of the global temperatures, a step up the ladder and now we level off a bit until the next El Nino. Also reported today in the New Scientist a record low (since records began) on global sea ice cover. As Gavin Schmidt mentioned, probably not directly related to the recent El Nino. No surprise but we must continue narrating the effects as they happen, it will affect our lives.

    Let’s hope for some good effects (in my lifetime) eventually. Just recently my countries National TV station has been including Climate Change report items in the main daily news reported as a matter of (accepted) fact – acceptance from official media has to be a good sign.

    “It’s a new low point. The area of the world’s oceans covered by floating sea ice is the smallest recorded since satellite monitoring began in the 1970s. That means it is also probably the lowest it has been for thousands of years.”
