September 2019 equal hottest on record: monitor

The Copernicus Climate Service said September 2019 was 0.57 Celsius hotter than the historical average
The Copernicus Climate Service said September 2019 was 0.57 Celsius hotter than the historical average

Last month was the equal hottest September in history, the European Union's satellite monitoring service said Friday, the fourth month in a row with near- or record-breaking temperatures.

The Copernicus Climate Service said September 2019 was 0.57 Celsius hotter than the historical average—on a par with September 2016.

Last month was in fact very slightly warmer (0.02 C) than September but the said they were treating both as joint record-holders.

The data continues Earth's hot streak, with June being the warmest June ever, July the warmest month in recorded history. August was the second hottest August since records began.

Copernicus said its data was further evidence of our planet's "long-term warming trend".

The service, which uses satellite imaging to observe ground-based climate trends, said it had registered significantly hotter than average months for the central and eastern United States, the Mongolian plateau and parts of the Arctic.

Temperatures in Europe were lower than the September average, as they were in southwestern parts of Russia and parts of Antarctica.

Yet the overall trend is hotter, according to Copernicus Director Jean-Noel Thepaut.

"The recent series of record-breaking temperatures is an alarming reminder of the long-term warming that can be observed on a global level," Thepaut said.

"With continued and the resulting impact on global temperatures, records will continue to be broken in the future."

Earth has warmed a little over 1 C since pre-industrial times and manmade emissions—as well as atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases—are rising annually.

Several peer-reviewed studies released this year showed that Earth had never in human history warmed so rapidly and uniformly as currently.

Wait, Deniers. Take a break; I've got this one.
Lies!! It's all lies. Everyone know the planet is actually getting colder. It's a giant, global conspiracy of Governments, Academia, the News Media, and the Scientific Community to drive us all back to the Stone Age because they hate progress and don't love life like we do.
Good?

Over the past 60 years, I've worked mostly in positions that required physical measurement.
When I see a temperature difference given to the nearest 1/100th of a degree I sort of wonder - how was that figure derived. If the instruments used gave readings to the nearest 1/10th of a degree, then shouldn't that be the limit of the final figure's accuracy? And if the instrumentation is only reliable to the nearest half a degree?

Does averaging, homogenizing, or other similar mathematical manipulation increase the actual accuracy of the measurements?

LOL

Seriously? Modern thermometers easily discern temperature differences of 0.002 C. Here's one you can buy for under US$4,000.00: https://www.instr...-scanner

This isn't even scientific quality instrumentation; it's just a technician's precision instrument.

What have you been doing that has anything to do with geophysics that can't even reach a precision of 1/100th of a degree C?

And BTW, this is a Fluke meter; if you don't know who Fluke is, you've been hiding in mommy's basement for 40 years.

Oct 04, 2019
Here's the whole page; there are thermometers there capable of even better precision and accuracy than the Fluke, but I didn't bother other than to click one or two of them. And none of them costs over US$12,000.00. This isn't rocket science. https://www.instr...mometers

I used a Fluke volt meter (tenths of micro-volts) when building strain gauge load cells for the scale industry. That was back in the early 70's.

So, when measuring worldwide (or even US-wide) temperatures for a "hottest" month ever - just what instrumentation were they using? A Fluke at every station? I sort of have my doubts about that.

I note that the supplier promises "Free lifetime Tech Support" - for just three and a half grand that's not too bad at all.....

Geophysics? Six years in the 60's - seismic oil exploration - Australia, Papua, Indonesia, and a ship in the Java Sea. For timing: short-wave WWV and/or WWVH. The requirement was one millisecond in eight seconds. I worked my way up - jug hustler, Junior Observer, Observer, Playback Operator - then I got married in 1969. (We just celebrated our 50th.)

"... you've been hiding in mommy's basement for 40 years." Not really necessary in a polite conversation don't you think?

Oct 04, 2019
What, I shouldn't show thermometers that have too high a resolution for the liar denier climate trolls?

OK.

They're still out there and you can buy one. Good luck with that. Instrumentation has progressed. But you still want to use measurements from the 1960s. To push your bankrupt narrative. Not to mention ignoring vast fields of evidence, like for example satellite measurements.

Oct 05, 2019
Oh and BTW, noticed you don't have any response to the resolution, accuracy, and precision of these fairly cheap measuring instruments which you claimed couldn't have that resolution, accuracy, and precision. These aren't even scientific grade instruments; they're technician grade. Do you have anything to say about that, or are you just knee-jerking?

Oct 05, 2019
I mean, seriously, are you really arguing that the thermometer on your porch can only measure degrees, so all teh evul sienstis are lying?

Really?

Really?

Yes, all other considerations being ignored, the averaging of multiple measurements reduces the measurement error.

That should be common knowledge to anyone who graduates from high school.

Who in their right mind would put a $4,000 thermometer in orbit to measure global temperatures?

What if it breaks down, you'd be out $4,000 bucks.

Stupid scientists.

Still baffled by the Science... ? No worry we know that ;)

I would expect that the thermometers on a ten million dollar satellite would considerably outperform any commercial thermometer that is shown on the page I linked.

Second stupidest comment on the site today. Maybe you'd like to say something in your next comment that's a bit less brain dead.

Oct 05, 2019
I am irresistibly reminded of Darth Vader in the Energizer commercials unscrewing his light saber and finding Supervolt batteries in it. No, you don't put the cheap commercial $4000 stuff in your ten million dollar satellite, duhhhhh ummmm.

dairy farms on the island of Greenland? No. Grape vineyards in Scotland? No.

Not the hottest September.

The fact is, those who claim to care about "climate change" really don't. Those who care have common traits.
They don't necessarily settle for what they are ordered to believe. They can involve themselves, to the point of considering and actually examining alternate explanations, even if just to see that they make sense. They don't engage only in what can be called displays of concern that don't necessarily do anything, like sit ins, marches, protests, contenting themselves that they did enough. And they certainly don't accept insipid dodges as necessary proof that alternative explanations are untrue.
Actually, it is chemtrails, not "fossil fuels", that are causing the depraved weather. But those who claim to care won't discuss chemtrails. They won't even say the word.

Oct 06, 2019
September has been the Hottest month by far, i'm still recovering from heat stroke ! These climate ignorants are dumber than nuts.

Oct 06, 2019
The fact its those who care about climate change DO care about climate change, your silly argument holds no water repeated like a numb puppet over and over again.

That does not determine the worldwide temperature you idiot.

Scientist Who Discredited Meat Guidelines Didn't Report Past Food Industry Ties

"Scientists should have intellectual curiosity and be open to challenges to their data. Science is about debate, not about digging your heels in."

I'm surprised that the NYT would have included this quote in an article - after all - "The science is settled" -- right?

Oct 06, 2019
We are not surprised that you are surprised dummy, don't believe everyhing you read in the news... ;) Of course we know you do, you believe everything you can thumb suck out of that monkey thumb.

Oct 06, 2019
"The Copernicus Climate Service said September 2019 was 0.57 Celsius hotter than the historical average—on a par with September 2016"

I don't see what the argument is.

No science is settled. Who taught you that?

When I see the term "settled science" i think idiot.

Exactly right - don't believe what is in the news. Global warming - climate change - sea level rising - children won't know what snow is - et al ad nausem.

And that's just about all one sees in the news these days. You're right to ignore it.....

Just what the heck is a 'monkey thumb' anyway - please elucidate.

No Dummy antigoracle sockpuppet, you did not read my comment nor understand it, i said don't believe everything you read in the news, that does not mean you should not believe the science and the truth. But you are clearly incapable of comprehending any science. Focus those peas ;)

This one is easy dummy, it's because you ARE an idiot ;)
The science is settled, over 10 000 peer reviewed studies points us in the direction of Human Induced Climate Change. Your sore thumb sucked opinions only makes you look dumber by the day.

Nice link, @Helo. We need more like this.

and when I agreed, the answer was:

Can I believe anything? The US reporting on the current political scene? The reporting on climate change? The stabbing of four people inside the Paris Police HQ? Why should I believe any of it?

Quick question. How many foreign English language newspapers do you check each day. It's interesting to see what they report that is ignored/suppressed (ie. edited/censored) in US papers.

(I did a cut and paste for the first quote, and didn't correct the spelling mistake. I haven't had to grade papers in many years - based on all of the above: C+. You're welcome)

Go through the thread - count the number of derogatory terms used. If these comments are an indication of the mental abilities of people who firmly believe in man-made global warming, then I now qualify as a confirmed skeptic. Thanks for the educational experience.....

Hey ! i predicted this hottest Sept ever ! I have the power of prediction ! yippee

and every month and year from now on will be the hottest ever !

Oct 07, 2019
O really you dumb nut, trying to preach BS once again when you yourself use these terms ????
When I see the term "settled science" i think idiot. Good for you.....
What an Idiot.Tombstone is just another sockpuppet of Antigoracle, with no educational contribution. Your utter stupidity and foolishness deserves each and every term used to describe your inability to learn, undertsand or produce scientific evidence. ;)

No the going all happy clappy inside your head is just those 2 peas overheating monkey goracle sockpuppet LOL...In the meantime the science is doing extremely well ;)

@Gabby, no, I did not say any of that. Are you addled?

Oct 07, 2019
Meanwhile, I haven't had a response to my proof that there are much more sensitive instruments out there than anything you have ever worked with. Nor to the well-established fact that satellite instruments have very much higher sensitivity than anything you're talking about, @Gabby. And they circle the Earth measuring and measuring and measuring. And you're denying all these measurements.

You're a troll.
