400 and counting

Last month marked the planet's 400th consecutive month with above-average temperatures, federal scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Thursday.
Climate scientists use the 20th-century average as a benchmark for global temperature measurements. That's because it's fixed in time, allowing for consistent "goal posts" when reviewing climate data. It's also a sufficiently long period to include several cycles of climate variability.

"The thing that really matters is that, by whatever metric, we've spent every month for several decades on the warm side of any reasonable baseline," Arndt said.

NOAA's analysis found last month was the 3rd-warmest April on record globally. The unusual heat was most noteworthy in Europe, which had its warmest April on record, and Australia, which had its second-warmest.

And yet:
North America was the one part of the world that didn't get in on the heat parade. Last month, the average U.S. temperature was 48.9 degrees, 2.2 degrees below average, "making it the 13th-coldest April on record and the coldest since 1997," NOAA said.

NASA Data: Earth Cooled by Half a Degree Celsius From '16-'18

The average global temperature dropped by more than half a degree Celsius from February 2016 to February 2018, according to recent NASA data.

According to RealClear Markets, the average temperature around the world fell 0.56 degrees Celsius during that time period, the biggest dip in temperatures since a decrease of 0.47 degrees Celsius from 1982-1984.

The data came from the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

The overall temperature change during the recent two-year period was the result of two shorter changes, from February to June 2016, which turned in the largest five month drop in history, and February to June 2017.

There were several claims in 2013 and 2014 the Earth was entering a global cooling period, which was predicted to last until the middle of the current century.

Why is it that these people can't be ecofriendly without being crazy hysterics? More importantly, why can't they look at how the people who are feeding them this sky-is-falling global warming (cooling?) (something?) nonsense live? If Al Gore really believed the crap he spews, he would be more environmentally conscious himself instead of living alone in mansions, driving SUVs, and flying private.

It's fascinating. Taking environmental talking points from people who suck resources like a Hoover, and taking gun ban talking points from people who have armed guards protecting them. Why do the sheeple gobble this stuff up? What need does it tap into that they all readily jump on, despite common sense and contrary to what they can see with their own eyes?
