NASA Reports Hottest January On Record

earth-screensaver_largeWe have been following reports on climate change that appear to support the view that major changes are occurring around the world. This week, NASA released figures showing that, after setting records in 2015, January was was the warmest on record. In another story, Australian wine producers are faced with changing grapes due to the sharp change in climate in that country. As someone who loves Australian reds, the news hits particularly hard and captures the range of subtle and substantial changes that will have to be made in light of the worsening situation.


This follows findings of the warmest December on record.

jan2016-nasa-anomaliesJanuary was not just the warmest but the most anomalously warm month in 135 years of record keeping. There have now been four months with such high temperatures. According to NASA, temperatures in some parts of the Arctic averaged up to 23°F above normal for the month. A new low in ice formation was also set in January with sea ice extent was 402,000 square miles below average.

Here is the report: Climate Change Report

  1. Wow how shocking. The most shocking thing would be if NASA was actually telling the truth about this. It might be a first. The following video really P*ssed me off. Will it affect you the same way?

    NASA Releases First ‘Full View’ Of Earth Since Apollo 1972

    Conspiracy Theorist; Someone who questions KNOWN liars.

  2. Climate can go up or down. Some call it change and some loosely call it symbiotic. Some things on Earth go up and then down. The climate change deniers will deny that volcanoes erupt. Others will say that an eruption was caused by tintillation. Others by coitus interruptus. Or as someone on the blog said “Pull out now like your father should have.”

  3. When climate change affects our favorite wine, that’s when this gets serious. “We’re not so different, you and me.” Dr. Evil.

  4. How can that be? It’s only 10 degrees today in western NY! Science, schmience. As The Donald said, it’s just weather! Now him I trust. I sure don’t trust those government agencies that have ulterior motives to help save the planet’s ecosystem.

    And Ted Cruz calls climate science bunk, ‘The last 15 years, there has been no recorded warming.’ I trust Ted, not these scientists who have studied these trends for decades. They just want more taxpayer funding for their failed schemes.

    ‘A new paper by Sondre Båtstrand studies the climate-change positions of electoral manifestos for the conservative parties in nine democracies, and finds the GOP truly stands apart. Opposition to any mitigation of greenhouse-gas emissions, he finds, “is only the case with the U.S. Republican Party, and hence not representative of conservative parties as a party family.”’

    Science, who needs it! Just gimme another gun and I’ll fight off any climate changes.

  5. Is it paranoid schizophrenia to not do anything about the scientific theory of man-made global climate change? OR, is it paranoid schizophrenia to believe you MUST act today or the end of the world will happen?

    What is even more insane is to believe countries like China will get with the program. More “progress” unintelligently planned. Political science will destroy this country and perhaps our planet long before climate science.

  6. Has ANYONE ever given a thought to all the RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL from FUKUSHIMA that has been dumping into the ocean EVER CONSIDERED THE FACT THAT NUCLEAR MATERIAL CAUSES THE TEMPERATURE OF THE WATER TO RISE????? … AND HOW THAT IN ITSELF CAN AFFECT THE CLIMATE???? NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT IT POISONS, MUTATES AND KILLS THE LIFE IN THE OCEAN?

  7. NASA: “Never A Straight Answer”.

    More evidence available at: “NASA Mooned America”

    The author, Ralph Rene appeared on “Third Point of View”, a program on Monmouth CableVision, of which I was Director. He was lucid, rational, well-spoken, and very entertaining. Florida Mensa threw him out when he was too smart for their leadership who he caught embezzling member funds. I have a autographed copy of this book. I would believe HIM before I ever believed NASA (which, I would politely remind the reader, is an agency funded – and therefore controlled – by the United States government).

    “People always overdo the matter when they attempt deception” – C.D. Warner.
    And, so, NO I do NOT believe humans ever set foot on the Moon, just as I disbelieve their climate data.

  8. jim22 “Wow, 135 years of record keeping! That’s a loooong time!” Good one.

    Watched a National Geographic show today at my boss’ house. Apparently scientists have been tracking Arctic ice with satellites since 1979. Wow. Such a long time. LOL. Anyway, they showed how the ice was melting, leaving polar bears looking pathetic and stranded. Only problem was they were showing this phenomena in the month of August every time! I pointed this out to my boss’ husband (they are true global warming, climate change believers)…that it’s AUGUST and the ice is sure to melt from higher summer temperatures and he assured me that August was in fact WINTER in Russia! I kid you not.

  9. Our hvac maintained. Our stat four dgrees lower than last year….power bill still more this year than last. That is if you care about “emmissions”…which allegedly causes ” climate” change then ask your self….do you want your heater on everyday of the month or just a couple?

  10. That is even if it was the hottest month on record….what were the heating and cooling days? Because thats the feedback loop the claim about ” global” warming”…. Funny once your place heats up it can take a day or two of cold….without burning too much fuel. But if its too cool you burn fuel. Adding to the alleged problem. So even tho or if jan was “hot” it wasn’t warm enough. Whats the stat ob heating cooling days? Thats all that matters. It doesn’t matter bfe with no one heating cooling.

  11. Just over 2* of warming…

  12. I would expect climate to change. Chaos mathematics arose in part from weather studies. The history of the planet has recorded multiple changes in climate. There were no icecaps during the age of dinosaurs. The Roman and Medieval warm periods were warmer than the present warming. The science is not settled. ‘Settled’ science when settled by politicians and scientists whose financial survival depends on their grants is more like religion than actual science.

    It the ‘settled’ science were so good, why are their predictions so bad? The ice caps are supposed to be gone altogether by now. They are still there. Hurricanes were supposed to be more frequent and severe after Katrina–they weren’t. The oceans were supposed to flood everything yet sea level rise has slowed.

    How many b.s. and patently wrong predictions do you need before you realize these people are not telling you the truth?

    By contrast, incidentally, predictions from Einstein’s Relativity have been on the mark time and again, most recently with the discovery of the gravity waves he predicted. That’s what happens when your science is right.
