NASA is almost certain 2016 will be the hottest year in recorded history

Comments Off on NASA is almost certain 2016 will be the hottest year in recorded history

There are over two months left in the year, but that hasn’t stopped NASA from suggesting that 2016 will be the hottest on record . The planet has been on a heat streak for some time and the latest projections show that this September will the hottest in 136 years of record keeping – and it’s pretty safe to say that the entire year will follow suit. Gavin Schmidt, director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), made a 99 percent certain prediction that 2016 would top the charts all the way back in May, and the newest GISS data shows he was right on track. Last month was .91 degrees Celsius above the baseline period average, coming in a .004 degree hair ahead of September, 2014. This individual month’s data, when added to the numbers recorded for the entire year, paint a fiery picture for climate change ‘s effect on the entirety of 2016. Related: It’s official: 2015 was the hottest year in recorded history There may be a light at the end of the tunnel, as some do not believe 2017 will continue the trend. Jeremy Shakun, climate scientist from Boston College, told Gizmodo he believes the recent El Niño phenomenon contributed to higher temperatures this year and that next year will not be so dire. “Nonetheless,” he said, “the important thing is the long-term warming trend.” If we can continue racing to meet the Paris climate agreement ’s goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees, we might have a fighting chance to stop the trend from continuing.

NASA says Earth is warming at a rate ‘unprecedented in 1,000 years’

Comments Off on NASA says Earth is warming at a rate ‘unprecedented in 1,000 years’

New data has confirmed that the Earth has been experiencing the hottest temperatures on record . The latest findings from NASA’s top climate scientists now reveal the world is heating up at a rate that hasn’t occurred within the past 1,000 years. According to NASA , the planet will continue to warm “at least” 20 times faster than the historical average over the next 100 years. Gavin Schmidt, director of Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies , said that “in the last 30 years we’ve really moved into exceptional territory.” He added, “It’s unprecedented in 1,000 years. There’s no period that has the trend seen in the 20th century in terms of the inclination (of temperatures).” July 2016 was the hottest month on record, and this year the average global temperature peaked at 1.38C above levels reported in the 19th century. That number is dangerously close to the 1.5C limit determined by the Paris Climate Agreement . Nasa warns that temperatures will only increase by leaps and bounds at the rate we are going. Related: New NASA data confirms July 2016 was the hottest month on record If we have even the slimmest of hopes to combat this unprecedented rate of global warming, Schmidt says, “maintaining temperatures below the 1.5C guardrail requires significant and very rapid cuts in carbon dioxide emissions or co-ordinated geo-engineering. That is very unlikely. We are not even yet making emissions cuts commensurate with keeping warming below 2C.” “It’s the long-term trend we have to worry about though and there’s no evidence it’s going away and lots of reasons to think it’s here to stay,” Schmidt said. “There’s no pause or hiatus in temperature increase. People who think this is over are viewing the world through rose-tinted spectacles. This is a chronic problem for society for the next 100 years.” + NASA Via The Guardian Images via Pixabay , NASA , and NASA Earth Observatory
