Climate Emergency!!! NASA Reveals February Breaks Global Temperature Records By A Shocking Amount
NASA has just released the most shocking data on global warming. Global surface temperatures in February created a record as the hottest month in more than a century. With the increase of surface temperatures across land and sea featuring a 1.35 °Cabove the average baseline from 1951-1980, this means February broke global temperature records by a shocking amount.
1 Climate emergency declared with frightening increase in Global temperatures
In a century of record keeping by the space agency, never before has there been such an unprecedented rise in surface temperatures. 1.35 °C may not sound much, but in terms of the earth surface temperatures, it is a huge amount and picture the scenario if every year the figure increases even by a fraction. What would be the average global surface temperature just 50 years from now?
This is a scary prospect which goes to show the issue of global warming has not decreased even by a tiny margin. Climatologists have declared a climate emergency as temperatures near the agreed 2°C mark.
2 Climatologists Worried Over NASA Bombshell
When NASA declared the last record in January, global temperature featured a rise of 1.14 °C above average. From such a pattern, one shudders to think what will happen in March. Will it surpass the records of February? Hopefully, not!
The new results are shockingly revealing of the incessant record increase in global temperatures due to unabated human production of greenhouse gases. This is definitely one record that does not need to be broken but are we ever going to learn?
3 Why Is 2016 proving to be the Year of Atmospheric Record in Temperature?
NASA’s shocker provides enough evidence that the world is closer to the mutually agreed level of 2°C set as a maximum for pre-industry levels. Even this is a bone of contention for environmentalists when reports last year featured an overall 1 ° C rise above global mean temperatures. In fact throughout 2015, the 1°C mark was breached to feature 1.02°C degrees.
On 2nd March climate specialists observed an actual breach of the 2°C mark in the Northern hemisphere. This was the first time in history a maximum had been breached. The arctic during winter saw an astounding temperature of 35°C warmer than the average. According to Mark Serreze the director of the US National Snow and Ice Data Centre, the weather conditions were extremely absurd.
“The heat has been unrelenting over the entire season,” he said. “I’ve been studying Arctic climate for 35 years and have never seen anything like this before”.
4 Increase in Global Temperatures Attributed To EL NINO and Greenhouse Gases
The rise in average temperature is likely to have its consequences. While nations agree to the 2°C maximum, Pacific Islanders declare the limit should be only 1.5 because rise in temperatures beyond that will produce devastating results to the region.
One contributing factor to the rise in global temperatures of course is the El Nino weather condition that occurs every 3 to 6 years subsequently increasing global temperatures. But by far the biggest contributing factor is man himself due to rampant product of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere.
5 2016 All Set To Be the Hottest Year on Record
With alarming revelations in global temperatures, climatologists predict 2016 will be the hottest year yet. When February is breaking global temperature records by a shocking amount, it remains to be seen how many more records are going to be broken by the end of the year.
Climatologists fear the worst as each year is breaking a number of records in climate change. While current figures still don’t provide evidence to presume the outcome of long term trends, still the current impact of global warming is having a dangerous effect on the Earth.
Take a look at these images which show the real effects of global warming on earth.
