World simmers in hottest year so far
Reuters on Yahoo ^ | 7/16/10 | Alina Selyukh

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The world is enduring the hottest year on record, according to a U.S. national weather analysis, causing droughts worldwide and a concern for U.S. farmers counting on another bumper year.

For the first six months of the year, 2010 has been warmer than the first half of 1998, the previous record holder, by 0.03 degree Fahrenheit, said Jay Lawrimore, chief of climate analysis at the federal National Climatic Data Center.

Period of a El Nino weather pattern is being blamed for the hot temperatures globally.

"We had an El Nino episode in the early part of the year that's now faded but that has contributed to the warmth not only in equatorial Pacific but also contributed to anomalously warm global temperatures as well," Lawrimore said.

Abnormally warm temperatures have been registered in large parts of Canada, Africa, tropical oceans and parts of the Middle East.

Northern Thailand is struggling through the worst drought in 20 years, while Israel is in the middle of the longest and most severe drought since 1920s. In Britain, this year has been the driest since 1929.

Also, Arctic sea ice has melted to its thinnest state in June.

However, as cooler temperatures may set in later this year, it remains to be seen whether 2010 will overtake 2005 as the hottest year overall.

What may tip the scale is the development of La Nina, possibly coming in July and August, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration .

I think we should just blame it on Al Gore.

Uh, why would we believe anything these Climate gate /Peer Review liars are saying ?

This Mid Summer “announcement” would have happened no matter what the Temperature. They’re predictable propagandists.

Seems to be some question as to whether there's a current trend towards overall climatological warming, cooling, or equilibrium.

Despite the laughable liberal political opportunism of so-called "global warming," Biblical prophecy indicates things will heat up in the days going into the soon-coming Day of the Lord and the Tribulation.

My sister used to take little palms back to Minniesoda and grow them there, ya had to take them inside in the winter but they done good for awhile .. course they eventually died in an enclosed porch , darn things got pretty good sized but they aren’t the best house plant when they get taller.

What good is US national weather analysis when they have moved data collectors to the hottest locations and have stopped collecting data from the coldest locations. Garbage in, garbage out.

“World simmers in hottest year so far”

It’s currently 57 degrees at my home. At least 20 degrees BELOW average. Global Warming is a myth.

Mid-July and everywhere is green.
No withered brown areas at all.

Well, it’s 90 here and, frankly, considerably more comfortable than yesterday and the day before. The good thing we get out of this is peaches and tomatoes.

It’s a sweltering 73 degrees near Oakland. Since my CA record-keeping started 15 years ago this has been one of the mildest summers I’ve experienced.

Noise amplified by political rhetoric, lies and innuendos tend to stimulate the molecules of the lower atmosphere zone to the point that it creates “LOTS OF HOT AIR”.

There can be no global warming from El Nino, which only circulates existing heat. If somewhere gets hotter, something else gets colder.

I wish liars realized lies just buy them time, and then there's hell to pay. Very few lies go undiscovered.

It must be because the weather weenies are from the North East and their POV is the only one that matters.

Exactly. We've only been getting temps in the 80s and higher for about three weeks to a month now. My garden's suffering because of the cold spring we had...for the second year in a row!

So we had an El Nino in 1998.

12 years and quite a bit of carbon dioxide later, we are having another El Nino. We are having global temperatures statistically the same as 1998.

That would be a data point in favor of those who reason that global warming will be an annoyance rather a full-scale disaster.

Anyone who knows anything about the Earth's climate history realizes there have always been short term temperature fluctuations. By "short term" I mean periods of less than 20,000 years or so.

To base any predictions of a climate trend on temperature observations over a mere 200 years is laughable. The fact a few con artists at the UN are getting away with it only illustrates once again how easily human ignorance can be manipulated for political ends.
