Another month, another global temperature record, as 2015 is proving to be even hotter across Earth than record-setting 2014 was.
Last month the average global temperature was the highest recorded for March since record keeping began in 1880, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said Friday.
Average global temperature, including both land and ocean surfaces, was 1.53 degrees Fahrenheit (0.85 degrees Celsius) above the 20th century average.
“Record warm temperatures continued to dominate in the northeast Pacific Ocean and were also notable in the southwest Pacific and parts of the Arctic Seas to the north and northwest of Scandinavia,” NOAA said in its report. “Overall, every major ocean basin had at least some areas with record warmth and large areas with much warmer-than-average temperatures.”
The first quarter of this year, from January to March, had already broken records. It was the hottest such period in the administration’s 136-year archive.
But remember, global warming is a myth, all the world's climate scientists are involved in a massive conspiracy to deceive you, it's really a major hoax to impose a new world order and destroy the world's economies, and only the Republican Party can save you from it.
Or, you know, we could lower carbon emissions. One of these two paths is the truth. So far, America has overwhelmingly decided on path number one.
