The Earth’s Surface Continues To Warm Because Of Human Greenhouse Gas Pollution

Spread the love

Recently NASA GISS released the measurement of the Earth’s surface for January 2016. I added this latest measurement to the long term database (from 1880) and calculated the running 12 month average of surface temperatures. This is the resulting graph:

giss_12-month_moving_average

These are anomaly values, as indicated. January was the warmest month recorded in terms of anomaly, and it follows December 2015 as the previous warmest month. The top warmest anomalies in the entire NASA GISS database (going back to 1880) are listed below.Notice that all of these years are recent, and notice that the warmest and most recent months (from late 2015 through the present) are MUCH warmer than previously.

  1. “The Earth’s Surface Continues To Warm Because Of Human Greenhouse Gas Pollution”

    It’s such a intelligent and witty remark. I never heard it before. Where did you get it from?

  2. Lars #6:

    I see that. However, I read that as degrees divided by 100.

    The graph appears to be showing multiplied by 100.

    So either the label should read degrees C * 100 or I am missing something really obvious (which is certainly possible).
