2014 was the Hottest Year on Record... Empty 2014 was the Hottest Year on Record...

This past year was the hottest since at least 1891, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) said on 5 January. According to the JMA, the average temperature in 2014 was 0.27 °C warmer than the 1981 to 2010 baseline average.
This was not unexpected: in December, the United Nations' World Meteorological Organization released a preliminary analysis of temperatures from January through October 2014 pointing to a record-setting year. The UK Met Office said at the time that its data were in agreement. The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which is set to release its final analysis on 16 January, is expected to report the same finding.

The warmth in 2014 is also notable for another reason: the absence of El Niño. Three years that were previously considered to be the hottest in the global record — 2010, 2005 and 1998 — got a boost from the weather pattern known as the El Niño Southern Oscillation, which pushes up air temperatures.

Those would be global temps and not deniers' method of poking their head of the window, and checking local weather forecasts. LOL! Razz

I was reading about this yesterday but some still deny it. Whether it's a normal Earth cycle or we are causing it, the facts are clear: the planet is getting hotter. Some believe global warming stopped in 1998 but the other 3 hottest years have been 2005, 2010 and 2014 which show it has not stopped.

Skeptics of global warming have always said the planet is cooling..... I hope it does but I am yet to believe it.

VM, whether is CO2 or not it doesn't really matter at this point, we are poisoning the planet and we need to start making a change... a greener changer.

VM,tell us where you got those graphs from please.

This one is from the JMA website (Japan Meteorological Agency ):

The annual anomaly of the global average surface temperature in 2014 (i.e. the average of the near-surface air temperature over land and the SST) was +0.27°C above the 1981-2010 average (+0.63°C above the 20th century average), and was the warmest since 1891. On a longer time scale, global average surface temperatures have risen at a rate of about 0.70°C per century.

This is from NOA (LINK )

Most areas of the world experienced above-average annual temperatures, as indicated by the Temperature Percentiles map below. Record warmth was observed over various regions of the world's land surfaces, including Far East Russia into western Alaska, the western United States, parts of interior South America, most of Europe stretching into northern Africa, and parts of both eastern and western coastal Australia. It was also much warmer than average across many other land areas all across the globe.

This is about the UK:

2014 was the warmest year on record for the United Kingdom since records began in 1910, according to the UK Met Office. The temperature was 1.1°C (2.0°F) higher than the 1981–2010 average, beating the previous record of 2006 by 0.2°C (0.4°F). Further, it was the warmest year on record in the Central England Temperature record, which dates to 1659. The warmth was prevalent throughout most of the year although no single month was record warm, with only August seeing a below-average monthly temperature.

Global warming caused by chlorofluorocarbons, not carbon dioxide, new study says -> http://phys.org/news/2013-05-global-chlorofluorocarbons-carbon-dioxide.html


Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are to blame for global warming since the 1970s and not carbon dioxide, according to new research from the University of Waterloo published in the International Journal of Modern Physics B this week.

Interesting hypothesis and time will tell how correct it is. CFC's came into general use in about 1952 or thereabouts and were banned in the early 70's because of the damage to the Ozone layer.

We know that the seas have been absorbing the excess heat over the last 10yrs and the temp. of the oceans is increasing. That combined with the ice melt has caused the seas to rise about 30cm to date.

Miami, which is just above sealevel, has a problem with street flooding whenever there is a spring tide now. Something that it had never experienced before 1980.

Addendum: forgot the linkie thingies!

From the above site:

2014 was the Hottest Year on Record... 201413

The year 2014 was the warmest year across global land and ocean surfaces since records began in 1880. The annually-averaged temperature was 0.69°C (1.24°F) above the 20th century average of 13.9°C (57.0°F), easily breaking the previous records of 2005 and 2010 by 0.04°C (0.07°F). This also marks the 38th consecutive year (since 1977) that the yearly global temperature was above average. Including 2014, 9 of the 10 warmest years in the 135-year period of record have occurred in the 21st century. 1998 currently ranks as the fourth warmest year on record.
The 2014 global average ocean temperature was also record high, at 0.57°C (1.03°F) above the 20th century average of 16.1°C (60.9°F), breaking the previous records of 1998 and 2003 by 0.05°C (0.09°F). Notably, ENSO-neutral conditions were present during all of 2014.
The 2014 global average land surface temperature was 1.00°C (1.80°F) above the 20th century average of 8.5°C (47.3°F), the fourth highest annual value on record.
Precipitation measured at land-based stations around the globe was near average on balance for 2014, at 0.52 mm below the long-term average. However, as is typical, precipitation varied greatly from region to region. This is the third consecutive year with near-average global precipitation at land-based stations.

NASA based their dire pronouncement on data taken from only 10 percent of available stations

The NASA analysis is based on readings from only 3,000 measuring stations worldwide. A different analysis, from the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) project, drawn from ten times as many measuring stations as GISS, concluded that if - if – 2014 was a record year, it was by an even tinier amount than NASA would have us believe.

In other words, NASA based their doomsday pronouncement on data taken from only 10 percent of the available stations. Do I detect some cherry picking going on?

The BEST report said: ‘Numerically, our best estimate for the global temperature of 2014 puts it slightly above (by 0.01C) that of the next warmest year (2010) but by much less than the margin of uncertainty. (italics added) ‘Therefore it is impossible to conclude from our analysis which of 2014, 2010, or 2005 was actually the warmest year…. the Earth’s average temperature for the past decade has changed very little.’
