If you aren’t currently a quickly evaporating puddle on the floor, [then] congratulations! You’ve just survived the hottest Jun ever since records started being kept in 1880. That according to climate data released Monday from the National Climatic Data Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which found that the worldwide average temperature over land and sea in June 2014 was 1.3 degrees Fahrenheit hotter than the 20th century average of 59.9 degrees.
The record was driven largely by warmer than normal ocean surfaces. Last month saw the highest temperatures on the water for any June on record, and the highest departure from the average for any single month ever. Average global land surface temperatures for June 2014 were also the seventh hottest June ever recorded.
Which only leaves 50,000 Junes for which we have no records and therefore no data with which to ascertain whether warming trends are even warming trends at all.
But pay attention when we’re trying to get you to panic, gnat-brains!
Forbes goes on to note “an inconvenient truth”: It was hot in June… in some places.
Which proves it… Now if Al Gore has a BM, watch out!
Of course, this data is averaged from across the entire planet, and climate change manifests itself differently in different locales. New Zealand, Central Africa, the United Kingdom and France were among the places that took the brunt of the heat. Alaska had its second wettest June since 1918; nationally the United States had our sixth-wettest June since 1895. Hurricanes Cristina and Amanda in eastern Pacific were among the earliest major Hurricanes on record in the region. Arctic sea ice extent was below average, while Antarctic sea ice extent was well above average.
In other words, the data is pretty much inconclusive. Which is as good a reason as any for liberals to become hysterical, and jump up on their coffee tables and do the sissy dance.
Obviously the moron hack who wrote this objective article votes Republican.
ATTN: IT WAS HOT IN JUNE EVERYONE
Or not… whatever…
