July 2019 hottest month on record for planet: NOAA

July 2019 temperatures were the hottest ever recorded globally, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said Thursday, while satellite data showed polar ice shrank to its lowest levels.

According to the NOAA, the average global temperature for the month was 0.95 degrees Celsius (1.71 degrees Fahrenheit) above the 20th century average of 15.8 degrees Celsius (60.4 Fahrenheit), making it the hottest July in its records, which go back to 1880.

"Much of the planet sweltered in unprecedented heat in July, as temperatures soared to new heights in the hottest month ever recorded. The record warmth also shrank Arctic and Antarctic sea ice to historic lows," the agency said.

The findings confirmed data released by the EU's Copernicus Climate Change Service on August 5, though the margin of the new record compared to the last, in July 2016, was greater according to the US data.

Searing heat waves saw records tumble across Europe last month, while in the US, nearly 150 million people struggled to stay cool from the Midwestern plains to the Atlantic coast and local media reported at least six deaths.

The new high is all the more notable because the previous followed a strong El Nino, which boosts average global temperates beyond the impact of global warming alone.

El Ninos are naturally occurring weather events triggered by periodic warming—every three to seven years—in the eastern Pacific Ocean.

Declining polar sea ice

"Nine of the 10 hottest Julys have occurred since 2005—with the last five years ranking as the five hottest," the NOAA said, based on its data from weather stations, ship reports, and buoys.

Alaska had its hottest July since it began keeping records in 2005, several countries in Europe saw their heat records smashed, and it was also the hottest month ever across Africa as a whole.

There were some regions with cooler than average temperatures including parts of Scandinavia and western and eastern Russia, where temperatures were at least 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) below average or cooler.

Average Arctic sea ice meanwhile set a record low for July, at 1.9 million square kilometers (726,000 square miles), 19.8 percent below average, and surpassing the previous historic low of July 2012.

Average Antarctic sea ice was 675,000 square kilometers (260,000 square miles), 4.3 percent below the 1981-2010 average, making it the smallest for July in the 41-year record.

US President Donald Trump in withdrew in 2017 from the Paris Climate Agreement, which seeks to cap global warming at below 2 C above pre-industrial levels.

But a federal climate assessment released by the NOAA in November found that climate change "is affecting the natural environment, agriculture, energy production and use, land and water resources, transportation, and human health and welfare across the US and its territories."

Another steaming load of AGW Cult bullshit.
Gobble up, Chicken Littles.

Aug 15, 2019
keep massaging those thermometer locations.

what you boffins need to be looking for is 100 or more days of sunshine with temperatures above 28C in European northern latitudes (Scotland, Norway, Poland, Denmark). That's the "climate" required for the normal ripening of cluster grapes of the kind that currently are cultivated in southern France. These grapes were cultivated in northern Europe prior to ~1300 CE. Then it got too cold.

Aug 15, 2019
Don't you people have anything other than insults and recycled lies?

Pitiful.

Aug 15, 2019
It's most amusing to see the world out enjoying the sunshine and warmth, while the Chicken Littles remain hiding in their cesspool of ignorance.
LMAO.

@antigoracle.
enjoying the sunshine and warmth
You mean like those that have died during the heatwaves this year, @antigoracle? It's amazing what 'weaponised stupids' and/or 'bots' can do on the net these days, hey @antigoracle? Anyhow, whatever you are, @antigoracle, your daily betrayal of all that is ethical may earn you your 'thirty pieces of silver' for the moment, but your family/descendants will pay for it manyfold in the future. You have demonstrated that you and your troll-factory-employed mates are such twisted/mercenary bots and/or weaponised-stupids that there's no hope of reason or humanity being realised in you or your programmers/handlers any time soon, @antigoracle. Pity.

Global warming of the planet is a reality as measured at different locations across the planet. Average global temperature has risen. We are currently living through the warm period, its effect are seen in events like the one described in the article.

The outcome of global warming slow (cause and effect have a large residence time) and not as quick as the ignition of rocket. This slow change gives people with limited knowledge a space to mislead other equivalents.

Note that the physical temperature of the planet is only one parameter among thousands of other factors that are human-caused.

@snoosebaum.

https://globalnew...e.com%2F
It's winter here, mate. The problem now is that the increased turbulence/dynamics has unsettled the prior prevailing patterns/winds; so the cold-fronts move faster from the antarctic region and cross the intervening ocean faster, such that winds/air doesn't dwell long enough over the ocean to warm it up a bit as usually happens. Hence why:
"This was the most snow we have ever seen in this area and it was much further north than normal,"
See? It's all about the extra heat energy in the global system creating more turbulent/extreme mixing/streaming. That is what is causing all the extreme/unseasonal weather events; because global warming adds to global system so that atmospheric convection/cycloning etc is made stronger/extensive/longer etc all over. Hence increased weather disasters of late.

It snowed in winter - in Australia. That trumps global temperature records any day! Oh - but it snows in Australia every year. So once again - snoose has the understanding of a 2 year old. But don't let that stop you from advertising your inner stupid.

"Hottest month on record" means, "In the Last 140 Years." It is a moot point; Earth's climate generally (though, not continuously) has been warming for 20k years.


Aug 16, 2019
Sure Pooua - but 20,000 years is proof enough that it has been a very slow rise indeed... Until now. The rate of rise is not business as usual at all.

Aug 16, 2019
''The problem now is that the increased turbulence/dynamics has unsettled ''

ah ha hahaha ! lol gotta come up with some crap pretty quick eh mate ?

thanks for the laugh , its why i come here !

especially now when it SO HOT ! hottest ev-ah !

what you boffins need to be looking for is 100 or more days of sunshine with temperatures above 28C in European northern latitudes (Scotland, Norway, Poland, Denmark). That's the "climate" required for the normal ripening of cluster grapes of the kind that currently are cultivated in southern France.


So what were the temperatures in southern france at that time?
"While a few days of temperatures greater than 86°F (30°C) can be beneficial in the ripening potential, prolonged periods can induce heat stress in the plant and lead to premature véraison, a possible abscising of the berries, and partial or total failure of flavor ripening."
https://www.guild...and-wine

There is no evidence for your 100 or more days of sunshine with temperatures above 28C claim.

These grapes were cultivated in northern Europe prior to ~1300 CE.

Where's your evidence?

Snoose says

No - especially now - when it is winter. Interesting right - the trolls are too stupid to understand that snow - in one part of the world - does not equal any kind of evidence against the reality - that the system overall is warming. Where is there evidence that it is not warming? Nothing. That is what you need. Evidence that it is not warming. Otherwise - what do you have? People who don't know the alphabet - trying to read a text book.

Aug 16, 2019
The reports are always that every month is is hottest for that month on record.
Who wants to bet that August will not be the hottest on record?

The southeastern U.S. has experienced a cool, wet summer, very good for the farmers.

Still don't even understand the basics - but happy to advertise the fact to the world. One region does not equal the globe. The global temps are rising - and if July was the hottest July on record - that is just a fact. Where is your global data to refute this fact?

I do understand the basics. Do you understand that the world does not have a temperature? It has a range of ever changing temperatures. Do you understand that when you choose where, when and how to measure temperatures and how to use those temperatures to create an average temperature, you can vary that temperature up or down quite a bit?

It is important to not only note where there have been excessive temperatures, but also to acknowledge that many areas are having lower than normal temperatures.

Climate does change. We have been coming out of an ice age for approximately 20,000 years and the climate has been changing. The amount of that change is not a measurable, absolute number.

The ocean around Australia has been cooler than normal this July. It would be warmer if the winds were not absorbing the same amount of heat. You have just confirmed that AGW is unfalsifiable. Even cold is caused by warming eh?

Clearly you don't - or you would not be posting such blatant fallacies. Scientists can measure the temp of the earth. They do it all the time. That is how they come up with graphs like this. http://berkeleyea...2017.png

So keep advertising your ignorance of science - on a science site.

I think that says it in a tin cup. You, denier guys, are idiots.

Aug 16, 2019
There is obviously no evidence that would convince these trolls to admit they're wrong. They've been presented with the best evidence science has for years on end, and that evidence has accumulated and what was predicted has come to pass. Now all they've got is conspiracy theories.

If there is such evidence let them say what it would take without taking so long the problem would be insoluble.

Bet all we get is links to pseudo-science sites and YouThrob videos.

Let's see some scientific papers from less than 20 years ago. To stack up against the 10,000+ scientific papers from the last two decades that support their positions. From reputable journals, written by scientists with reputable credentials like CVs that reference geophysics.

Well - they have satellites, and buoys, and ground stations, all collecting data. Then they write peer reviewed papers -
and take their knocks with the science community in terms of having their data analysis scrutinized by thousands of other scientists. The fact that Snoose can link to a stupid you tube video, of some random dude - trying to explain shit he does not have a clue about - shows you exactly how idiots like Snoose develop their understanding of the world. Where is your data Snoose? Show us with science - that the earth is not warming.

Instead of talking about Trump who quit the Paris agreement (shame to those who voted for him), it's much more important to talk about all the others who sign this treaty, without doing anything, started with the french who hypocritically hosted this event.

Few people seem to notice that the French did not do anything, like most countries who sign it.

Fakes are much more dangerous than the Trumpist because they discredit the whole movement.

Ingroup thinking (Trump vs the virtuous nations), which politicized the good and evil is the real danger.

Aug 17, 2019
Although the European Union is currently on pace to fall slightly short of its promise to cut emissions 40 percent by 2030, compared with 1990 levels, that may soon change

https://www.nytim...ack.html
As you point out - Trump quit the Paris agreement. Trump also promised to reduce the national debt. So who is the liar? At least Europe is trying to keep it's promises. But hey - as a Trump acolyte - you would of course never let a fact get in the way of your lies - would you?

greenonions1,

No, they don't. They take multiple temperature measurements at not so random sites and use some method to come up with a world temperature based on measurements of temperatures.

Different groups of people using different measurement sites would doubtless come up with different world temperatures. But of course, climate scientists have agreed to use the measurements they use and agree with whatever process is used to come up with the world temperature.

It has been said many times that 97% of climate scientists agree. Apparently they do agree with this process. But the temperature of the world at any particular time is not an absolute, measurable quantity.

What we are told is the world temperature is what the climate scientists want the world temperature to be. They determine the sites used for data and the methodology used to generate a world temperature.

Greenonions - Yes they do. Just because you can sit in the peanut gallery - and tell everyone about the massive conspiracy to take away your donuts (or something) - does not make you right. Science is science dogbert. The scientists are not trying to steal your donuts. They are trying to understand what the fuck is happening with our universe. If you don't like some information - roll your sleeves up - get your qualifications in the subject matter - do the research - and prove them wrong. Oh right - you would rather sit on the couch - and tell everyone how smart you are - cuz .... There is no cuz.

it is the medium that is the problem. Alex Jones is on youtube. I am interested in science. A collaborative program - done by people who have the qualifications - and have done the work. You are happy getting your world view from youtube. Go for it - idiot. Notice you just duck the elephant in the room - how you accuse countries of doing nothing - and yet that is just a lie. And then you sing the praises of your dear leader in chief - the world's biggest liar. And I gave you a real example of his willingness to lie. Go back to youtube snoose - and leave science alone.

Aug 17, 2019
greenonions1,

You can say as often as you want that the world has an absolute, measurable temperature but you are simply wrong. There is nothing about the way that scientists come up with a world temperature which is scientific and real.

The most that anyone can say scientifically is that the measurements of temperatures show a general tendency toward warmer, cooler or that the measurements show no particular change.

The world does not have a measurable temperature. Saying it does is not scientific and is not true.

Aug 17, 2019
dogbert
the temperature of the world at any particular time is not an absolute, measurable quantity
Yes it is. Saying it not so - does not make it so. Sure - it is highly complex. measuring a system as complex as the Earth - is a herculean task. But just because it is difficult - does not mean it is impossible. That is why we have spent millions (perhaps billions) of dollars - putting up satellites, dropping buoys, installing temp stations - all around the world. Scientists can and do say - what the temperature of the earth is. Yes there are error bars - but there are always error bars. That is basic engineering. Measure the temp of a glass of water - and you have error bars. Go back to reading comic books dogbert - this is science.

Aug 17, 2019
The most that anyone can say scientifically is that the measurements of temperatures show a general tendency toward warmer, cooler or that the measurements show no particular change
If you can't measure the temperature of something - how can you comment on it's tendency to warm or cool? Shit - that seems as basic a concept as you can get. Answer that question dogbert - how can you comment on the tendency to warm or cool - if you are unable to measure the temperature?

You really lack a basic understanding of science, don't you?

The answer is that the aggregate of the temperatures we measured today are [higher, lower, the same] as we measured [yesterday, this day last month, this day last year, etc.].

Aug 17, 2019
You really lack a basic understanding of science, don't you?
I think I have a pretty decent lay persons handle on science. Took a couple of college classes in the hard sciences - and studied psychology - that has a fair bit of research, stats etc.

You on the other hand cannot understand a very simple point. You are saying that scientists cannot measure the temp of the earth. Then you are saying that they can comment on the tendency of the earth to warm or cool. But that would require knowing the temp of the earth (as a base line) - in order to compare with future temperature readings. You are saying that something cannot be read - but then stating that it can be read. You are an idiot.

Aug 17, 2019
The answer is that the aggregate of the temperatures we measured today are [higher, lower, the same] as we measured [yesterday, this day last month, this day last year, etc.]
So tell us what you are arguing about. We collect millions of temperature reading every day. We aggregate those readings. (all by your own admission) - and we use that as a reference point - and call it the temperature of the earth. So what are you arguing about? Seems you just like to be stupid - and when you are caught being stupid - you like to argue over nothing.

Aug 17, 2019
greenonions1,
... and we use that as a reference point - and call it the temperature of the earth.


You can use that as a reference point. Every aggregate measurement you take can be a reference point which you can use to say that the temperature appears warmer, cooler or static. But it is not the temperature of the earth. You cannot measure an absolute temperature of an object as large as the earth where much of what constitutes its status is not even measurable and the measurements you use are arbitrary.

But you can use your data to show trends and make projections. When you go beyond that, you are lying to yourself and others.

Aug 17, 2019
But it is not the temperature of the earth
In other words you are trying to make an argument about nothing. How stupid. Because what you are now trying to say - is that we cannot know the temperature of anything. if you measure the temperature of a glass of water - if every molecule of that water is not exactly the same temperature - then we cannot know the temperature of that water. How stupid you are. Of course not every molecule of the earth is the same temperature. Of course it is colder at the poles, than it is at the equator. Of course the graph I referenced - that talks about the Earth's temperature - is an aggregation of all the various temperature readings of the Earth. So what are you trying to have an argument about? Did you think that someone was suggesting that every molecule of the earth was the same temp? No one is lying - this is all obvious. You are just an idiot - trying to look smart - and trying to argue about nothing. Shit....

Aug 17, 2019
Your use of profanity and name calling is sufficient to show you don't have a rational argument.

The earth does not have a measurable temperature. To say that you have measured its temperature is to lie and deny the scientific impossibility of measuring such a temperature.

As I noted earlier, you lack a good grasp of what science is and what it can do.

Aug 17, 2019
As I noted earlier, you lack a good grasp of what science is and what it can do
No - you lack the argument. You can't follow simple logic. You say that we can't measure the temp of the Earth - but then you admit that we can. Because the only way we can determine a trend - which you admit we can do - is to be able to measure the temp. Yes that measure is an aggregate of thousands of temps. No one in their right mind would deny that, or not know that. So it is you who is just trying to make an argument out of nothing. You are contradicting yourself and too stupid to even understand the point being made. Yes - we can establish a reference point that we call the earth's temperature - and it is based on the aggregate of many readings. Just as when we say - it is going to be 100 degrees in Oklahoma City tomorrow - we understand that it will not be exactly 100 degrees everywhere. You are just trying to make a stupid argument out of nothing.

Still waiting for you to refute NASA, or NOOAA or the British Meteorological society, or any one of many scientific organizations - that can say with confidence - that July 2019 - was the hottest July on record. So just like with Dogbert - you have no point - but want to present yourself on a science site - as some kind of expert.

Hint for the hard of thinking: here is how real science works; go to school. Do well in science. Go to university. Get a relevant degree. Work in a related area, investigating a relevant science. Maybe co-author a few papers. Eventually, author your own papers. Said papers are then submitted to respectable, relevant journals. Where they are peer-reviewed. And then (hopefully) published. Any other scientist can then read your paper, and reply to it if they feel the need, or spot an error.
How cranks work; do not study the relevant subject at school or anywhere else. Make sh!t up. Post it on Youtube, Twitter or some crank website of their own. Get ignored by real scientists. Have fanboyz post links to your ignored crap on sites like this.

Aug 17, 2019
@dogbert.

If you place thermometers at the centre of every room in your house and keep them there for 50 years and take readings every few seconds...is it you that is determining the average temp for the whole house at any stage you choose to collate those temp readings? Or is the temp trend a function of the readings over the whole house over the chosen period you wish to compare across all chosen periods?

Saying the kinds of things you have been saying is not only clearly out of line logically but also technically/mathematically. Please try to avoid letting subjective religious/political/mercenary/egotistic etc considerations cloud your objectivity, your intellect and common sense. The AGW problem is not just a trivial 'political/personal football' to be argued over as a matter of 'opinion' or 'academic esoterica' to amuse/impress yourself/your audience; it is a scientifically/objectively supportable/observable 'clear and present danger' trending worse every year. Ok? :)

Aug 17, 2019
@MR166.
The ocean around Australia has been cooler than normal this July. It would be warmer if the winds were not absorbing the same amount of heat. You have just confirmed that AGW is unfalsifiable. Even cold is caused by warming eh?
Your assumptions/interpretations are simplistic, mate. The temp of the ocean is also due to current patterns, frequency of cold fronts from the antarctic and also the speed of the air mass of those cold fronts. My point related to the effect of speed of cold front air masses; hence my point which goes to the lesser dwell time' for absorbing heat from ocean between Antarctica and OZ land mass. The less dwell time, the less heat absorbed because the differential temp between air masses and ocean surface waters is enough for heat transfer to occur regardless of that ocean surface water temp (which even if just above zero it would still lose heat to colder air mass well-BELOW zero). Mate, you need to have regard to the fuller picture. Ok? :)

And none of that negates the fact that there is no way to define an absolute world temperature. You can collect many varying temperatures in many places and aggregate those temperatures to some type of average, but that is not an absolute world temperature. Someone else using different measurements would create a different average temperature.

Scientifically, you can talk about trends based on your measurements. You can say that the measurements indicate an increase of .1 degree above yesterday's measurements. But when you say you have measured the temperature of the world with your measurements, you are not being scientific or honest.

Aug 18, 2019
You can collect many varying temperatures in many places and aggregate those temperatures to some type of average
Which is precisely what they do. And that aggregated average is the reference they use to compare future temperatures to. They call that the Earth's temperature. And as you yourself point out - we can use that aggregated average to determine a trend. And that trend is up. You have no data to dispute that fact. So you have no actual point.

Aug 18, 2019
greenonions1,
So you have no actual point.


My point was and remains that the so called world temperature which is created from multiple temperatures does not represent a real, absolute, verifiable and repeatable value.

It may be a useful term but calling it a world temperature is deceptive and frankly, just wrong. It is certainly not scientific to pretend to information you do not have.

I understand that you will repeatedly say that aggregate temperatures combined into a single value is a world temperature. As I noted before, you lack understanding of what science is and what it can do.

I won't repeat this again to you on this page. I have noted your reticence. Continually correcting you accomplishes nothing.

Aug 18, 2019
My point was and remains that the so called world temperature which is created from multiple temperatures does not represent a real, absolute, verifiable and repeatable value
Yes it does. So you have no point. That is why scientists are able to say - that July was the hottest July on record.
you lack understanding of what science is and what it can do
Well - based on your assertion of superior understanding (which is false) - thousands of climate scientists around the world are the ones who do not understand science. Great level of hubris you have attained.
Continually correcting you accomplishes nothing
You are not correcting any one - you are arguing science with the science community. Go write a paper and get published. That is how science works. Not by bragging about yourself on the internet.

No i don't snoose. I don't have to prove a youtube video blogger wrong. Actually - heller has apparently been discredited in the past. https://www.faceb...9322194/
But like dogbert - you don't understand science. Science is advanced - not on youtube, but in scientifically constructed papers. Those papers are not validated or invalidated on youtube - but by other trained scientists - writing papers. And around and around we go. Shame you did not pay attention on the first day of class.

''scientifically constructed papers. Those papers are not validated''
