Extreme weather around the globe: manifestations of runaway climate change

This year is shaping up as the warmest in the instrumental record, writes Earth and paleo-climate scientist at ANU, Dr Andrew Glikson.


This year is shaping up as the warmest in the instrumental record, as recorded by the National Climate Data Centre (NCDC — the world’s largest active archive of weather data), NASA Goddard Institute of Space Science (GISS), Hadley-Met/Climate Research Unit, Remote Sensing Satellite survey (RSS) and Microwave Sounding Unit (MSU).



According to an article by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), released last month on July 15:

“Last month’s combined global land and ocean surface temperature made it the warmest June on record and the warmest on record averaged for any April-June and January-June periods … Worldwide average land surface temperature was the warmest on record for June and the April-June period, and the second warmest on record for the year-to-date (January-June) period, behind 2007.”

The monthly analysis from NOAA is based on records going back to 1880.

But you will not read about it in much of the media.
