In a not so shocking announcement, The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration and NASA have announced that 2015 was the hottest year in the last 136 years. No, really? I had no clue. I just enjoy the feeling of sweat dripping down the crack of my ASS in December.
Conservatives are going to have to suck it up because the agencies have blamed global warming as the cause along with a “boost” from El Nino. However, 2015 would still have been a record setter without it. It was just an even bigger record breaker. Great.
December was the tenth month to reach a new warmth record. The only two months that didn’t were January and April.
Texas Tech climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe:
“It’s getting to the point where breaking record is the norm. It’s almost unusual when we’re not breaking a record.”
How so? December was the 10th month to reach a new warmth record. The only two months that didn’t were January and April. On top of that, 2015 is the hottest on file; however, it’s the fourth time in 11 years that a new high has been recorded. Monthly heat records have been broken 34 times since 2000. So, when was the coldest year? 1911.
