July Was Warmest Month On Record NOAA Reports, Lists All "Signifiicant Climate Anomalies And Events"

Tyler Durden's picture

While some, perhaps not California farmers, will disagree with NOAA's assessment of the world's atmospheric conditions, earlier today the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration declared that July was the warmest month ever recorded for the globe and was also the record warmest for global oceans, putting a full stop to a year that has been characterized by numerous perplexing atmospheric outliers around the globe but perhaps none other more so than NOAA's earlier assessment that the winter of 2015 was also the warmest on record despite the much discussed US winter, where for the second year in a row the economic slowdown was blamed on a colder than usual winter. Go figure: perhaps here too we need double seasonal adjustments.

Among some of the highlights noted by NOAA:

  • The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for July 2015 was the highest for July in the 136-year period of record, at 0.81°C (1.46°F) above the 20th century average of 15.8°C (60.4°F), surpassing the previous record set in 1998 by 0.08°C (0.14°F). As July is climatologically the warmest month of the year globally, this monthly global temperature of 16.61°C (61.86°F) was also the highest among all 1627 months in the record that began in January 1880. The July temperature is currently increasing at an average rate of 0.65°C (1.17°F) per century.
  • The July globally-averaged land surface temperature was 1.73°F (0.96°C) above the 20th century average. This was the sixth highest for July in the 1880–2015 record.
  • The July globally-averaged sea surface temperature was 1.35°F (0.75°C) above the 20th century average. This was the highest temperature for any month in the 1880–2015 record, surpassing the previous record set in July 2014 by 0.13°F (0.07°C). The global value was driven by record warmth across large expanses of the Pacific and Indian Oceans.

 

NOAA goes on to note some of the headline-grabbing "significant climate anomalies and events" including the Arctic and Antarctic Sea Ice Extent, Typhoon Nangka, the abnormally hot summer in western and central Europe coupled with the cooler than average weather in North Europe, the "widespread snow" in eastern Australia, the second warmest July in Africa, the fifth warmest July on record for South America, and the strange distribution of atmospheric conditions in the US, where the record California drought was contrasted with the cool Central states.

 

Some other highlights from the report:

  • The average Arctic sea ice extent for July was 350,000 square miles (9.5 percent) below the 1981–2010 average. This was the eighth smallest July extent since records began in 1979 and largest since 2009, according to analysis by the National Snow and Ice Data Center using data from NOAA and NASA.
  • Antarctic sea ice during July was 240,000 square miles (3.8 percent) above the 1981–2010 average. This was the fourth largest July Antarctic sea ice extent on record and 140,000 square miles smaller than the record-large July extent of 2014.
  • Austria  recorded its hottest July since national records began in 1767. The average temperature was 3.0°C (5.0°F) higher than the 1981–2010 average, beating the previous record of +2.7°C (+4.9°F) set just a few years earlier in 2006. Two major heatwaves, with temperatures reaching 38°C (100°F), contributed to this heat record. At some stations in major cities, including Innsbruck University, Linz, and Klagenfurt, it was not only the hottest July, but the hottest month ever recorded in the 249-year period of record. On July 7th, the daily temperature reached 38.2°C (100.8°F) in Innsbruck, its highest temperature in recorded history.
  • The heat waves extended to France, where the country had its third warmest July in its 116-year period of record. Overall, the temperature was 2.1°C (3.8°F) higher than the 1981–2010 average, with localized departures of more than 4°C (7°F) in the Massif Central to the North East and the Alps, according to MeteoFrance .
  • The Netherlands also experienced abnormally hot July temperatures at the beginning of the month. Under an intense heat wave that gripped much of western and central Europe, the southeastern town of Maastricht observed a temperature of 38.2°C (100.8°F) on July 2nd the highest temperature on record for that town and one of the highest for the country. The highest temperature ever recorded was 38.6°C (101.5°F) in Warnsveld in 1944. The heat did not last however. The temperature was below 0°C (32°F) at a station in Twente in the eastern part of the country on July 9th and 10th, the first time the temperature dropped below freezing in July since 1984.
  • Record-breaking heat was observed in parts of the southern United Kingdom at the beginning of July, including the highest temperature recorded in the country since August 2003. However, the heat did not last as westerly Atlantic air flowed in, bringing cooler-than-average temperatures for much of the remainder of the month. So, despite the early record heat, overall, the average July temperature for the UK was 0.7°C (1.1°F) lower than the 1981–2010 average.
  • Despite a heatwave over part of Sweden at the beginning of the month, temperatures remained cool for the reminder of July across much of the country. While temperatures across southeastern Sweden were slightly above average, other areas, particularly in the far north, were not. Pajala observed its coolest July since 1965 and Gaddede its coolest since 1951, although SMHI notes that the station has been relocated a few times over the years.
  • Norway experienced cooler-than-average temperatures for the third consecutive month. The average July temperature was 0.7°C (1.1°F) lower than the 1961–1990 average. Temperatures were as much as 3°C (5°F) below average at some stations in Finnmark.
  • A high pressure dome over the Middle East brought what may be one of the most extreme heat indices ever recorded in the world on July 31st. According to media reports, in the city of Bandar Mahshahr, the air temperature of 46°C (115°F) combined with a dew point of 32°C (90°F) for a heat index on 74°C (165°F). The highest known heat index of 81°C (178°F) occurred in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia on July 8th, 2003.

Putting this in context, in the 180 or so State of the Climate summaries since 2000, the NOAA has documented what it defines to be 13 of the 15 warmest years on record. Which means that the US government is hoping the population is not habituated to seeing such reports by now, especially not ahead of the politically important Paris climate conference this December, when a "comprehensive climate plan" is expected to be proposed. A plan which, just like the entire carbon credit fiasco, is certain to enrich some - such as Goldman Sachs - and do little for everyone else, because it is far better for financial elites and the political oligarchy to keep the world always one step away from a state of permanent crisis.

No one believes them. How many times were they caught manipulating the data, taking out the actual temps and putting in the temos from their models?

Even the tree huggers are starting to doubt this Bullshit, they are finally starting to focus on GMO'S and the poison being shoved down our throats in food supposedly deemed safe from the treasonous FDA.  Credibility is rapidly going down the drain.

Utter bullshit.  Their chart shows that my area was warmer than average, but this has been the coldest summer we have had in the 15 years I've lived here.  Only two days over 100 in July, and September is going to have highs in the 70's all month. Ridiculous for anywhere in Texas.

Anyone who buys these numbers is a fucking idiot.  Tyler is too, claiming they need a double seasonal adjustment when they have already had one to goalseek this AGW bullshit.

Booker is a fucking joke, and people who take him seriously are mentally retarded.

On a range of health issues, Booker has put forward a view that the public is being unnecessarily "scared", as detailed in his book Scared to Death. Thus he argues that asbestos, passive smoking[2] and BSE[8] have not been shown to be dangerous. His views on these matters go against scientific consensus, and as a result have attracted much criticism from other journalists as well as public bodies.

You deniers are hilarious. Compare the charts of USO and GRN (carbon credits). I have been making good money trading carbon credits. Which do you think is a better long term investment? "Denier" lol what will you tell your grandchildren. Think of me in 10 years when Oil still has a 50 handle and carbon credits Keep going higher. Thats because even if we stop emitting greenhouses gases today, AT least another 1 degree celsius is "baked into the cake" and uneducated stubborn fools like yourselfs wont believe it until global warming hits them and hits them hard. Anyway this is me laughing all the way to the bank. Do you think the upcoming UN conference in Paris in December will make GRN more or less expensive. #Sheeple.

Typical.  Ad hominem attack on Booker as opposed to addressing the research of the scientists and statisticians.

That 0.04% CO2 in the atmosphere which is now up from 0.035% over the last 60 years is deadly (although nobody is explaining how the global mean temp can drop in the 17 years since 1998 despite the increase n CO2 during those same years).

Definitely need a tax to stop CO2 and weather.

The gold will be gone from the paper exchanges in NY and London.  Maybe you can trade carbon credits.

Typical.  Ad hominem attack on Booker as opposed to addressing the research of the scientists and statisticians.

There isn't anything to address on the latter. On the former, the man is simply a lobbyist for various corporate interests. If the guy who was demonstrably lying on asbestos is the best you got, then you AINT GOT SHIT. Go give your head a shake and stop being an idiot. 

Do scientists make incorrect predictions frequently? Yes. So fucking what, it's the nature of the beast.

Does your md make incorrect predictions frequently? Yes. Do you still take their remarks under advisement...?

Implied Violins's picture

I agree with everyone above. This is utter made-up BULLSHIT. Timed to make the pope's speech in September popular, as he will call for a global 'carbon tax' and Agenda 21 policies to 'save the world.'

Anyone (with an open mind) who still believes in global warming, go check out Suspicious 0bserver's You-Tube website and get caught up on TRUE science. He's nailed this bitch, for over two years now. We are entering a Maunder Minimum.

A few things that DO bother me, however: all that heat in the ocean (built up due to geoengineering) WILL have to be reconciled, somehow. If the PTB were to go cold-turkey on the chemtrails and allowed that permanent high around Alaska (kept in place for FOUR YEARS!!) to finally move out (which has been bottling up weather in the arctic), then all that meltwater in the arctic will finally sink to the bottom of the Atlantic, shutting down the warm water conveyer belt that keeps Europe from freezing up. If that happened, all that warm water in the Pacific WILL become precipitation, flooding out California...but north of us, it will fall as SNOW - and it will be "Day After Tomorrow" EPICNESS.

ZerOhead's picture

The links between climate change on earth and solar output variability (TSI, solar wind, magnetic flux) is undeniable.

I like the Suspicious Observers site but I'm a little suspicious about Benjamin Davidson. The heat build-up in the ocean can be explained by the decrease in stratospheric ozone (more uv into ocean), break down in trade winds and change of jetstream from zonal to meridional flows.

Even HAARP couldn't fix this sucker... we are in for some very cold decades of weather with extreme variablity.

It warms my heart to see all these comments showing that the Gore et al. propanganda train has a lot of empty seats on board. Other than click bait why does Tyler post this offal? When .GOV is lying to you grab your wallet because they're after all your carbon credits (run through the Goldman Sachs coffers, of course). But what do you have against Ben? 

Implied Violins's picture

To be fair to ZeroHead, when Ben first came on the scene Michael Janitsch (DutchSince) of HAARP exposure fame came out and bitchslapped his ass, wondering how someone totally unknown could come on the scene so suddenly with such perfectly produced daily videos that smacked of MONEY. Too bad he didn't look into Ben's background first and realize he was dealing with a LAWYER (Ben's degrees are in law), who got Janitsch nearly banned from You-Tube and shut him down for a time after Michael tried to sink him with a stupid defamation video. Of course, Ben's daddy did set him up with his movie connections, but at this point I am willing to believe that Ben is above-board and being honest.

There is one thing about Ben that does still bother me, though: he doesn't tackle geoengineering head-on, even though commenters on his videos constantly make comments about it. Apparently he does talk about it on his pay-per-view stuff, but I'm a cheap bastard so I haven't checked that out. Still, that one thing IS a big minus in my book, that he doesn't even comment on it one way or the other is very, very suspicious in my book...I just hope he does so, in the hopes that he can avoid the PTB's prying eyes.

I guess I am a bonafide tree hugger.  I love trees.  I could not live without trees.  Everywhere I have moved (too many peregrinations) I have planted trees.  Lots of trees.  Fruit trees, fir trees, deciduous trees . . . may the gods bless all the trees.  I cannot even imagine a world without trees.  Never there was a symbol (the foundation of human communication) more apt than the Tree of Life.   Uncounted numbers of human cultures have found awe and wonder in the meaning of trees.  The Baobob, the Cypress, the mighty Oak, the towering Redwood; different peoples, different continents, different cultures, all revered trees.  

Do I call BS on global warming?   Should I call BS on global warming?  I submit that not one ZH'er here can definitively state (as our meager lives are far too short a measuring stick), what truly is a trend vs. what is a cyclic variation.  So if I cannot say nor convince you that the planet is warming (whether human assisted or not), can you say it is not?   I say, perhaps we should ask a tree.

I live high in the Rocky Mountains of southern Colorado, over 9,000.  When I first hiked these mountains, 50 years ago, it was nearly impossible to find a dead or dying tree anywhere at any altitude.  Of course they had to exist, dead trees.  Nothing lives forever.  And one always did come across the lone snag perched on a rock face too far, or a lightening cleft trunk, a rotting monster that had seen too many years, or bleached carcasses washed up along a riverbank.  Of course, trees did die.  Have to die.  But the forests, whether alpine, desert, coastal, or plains always had a habit of such living vitality that they seemed to hide their own.  It's the vibrant breathing living trees that one sees and experiences.  A dead tree was a rare counterpoint.

Sometime, around the turn of the millenium that experience began to change.  When you're riding a horse on a high and narrow rocky trail at 10,000 feet up, a dead tree across your path is more than a nuisance.  It can be dangerous.  Extensive deadfall, like in a vicious windstorm can be downright scary, and make you wish you had a mule under your saddle instead.  Except that rarity suddenly became more common.  For fifteen years now I have watched the once grand and green forest canopy of these incomparable mountains whither into naked twisted matchsticks.  What began slowly, barely noticeable, turned into all encompassing devastation in the last five years. Like collapsed tinker toys all akimbo, an eeriy scene right out of Cormac McCarthy's novel, "The Road".

Everything is dying.  Humongous douglas fir, ponderosa pine, blue spruce, aspen, and down lower even juniper and pinyon.  No longer just a tree here and there, but rather entire forests are utterly dead.  You climb up to Wolf Creek Pass over 11,000' high, the finest and greatest powder snow in the lower 48, and glass the landscape for 360 degrees, and you will not find one living tree.  Millions upon millions of dead trees as far as the eye can see.  You can drive for a hundred miles north to Gunnison and all you will see are dead forests, 100% dead.  Not dying, not browning, . . . just extinguished.  

My little rancho is heavily treed but interspersed with alpine meadows.  It's kind of a "Sound of Music" like atmosphere.  The beauty is breathtaking.  I smart at how lucky I am.  Never had to cut down a tree in the first twenty years, but I'm kept real busy these days, too much work for an old man.  Cutting trees.  At first it was a just couple here and there along the drive up to the house.  You call up the neighbors for free firewood.  But then it became more of a chore.  And a hazard (my granddad's ranch house was burned down twice in early California, so I know what loss is).  A lightening strike two years ago just one short canyon over the eastern horizon smoldered for two weeks before a good gust of wind came up.  Six days later 130,000 acres of some the prettiest forest in the entire country was nothing but char and ash.  So now i've timbered my 1,500th tree this week and I cannot keep up.  

Once I figured out what was going on I started to pay more attention.  In northern New Mexico I've noticed entire mountainsides of pinyon, one of the hardiest species out there, go brown.  Around Flagstaff in Arizona I've watched achingly as vast expanses of the Ponderosa belt rain down dead needles all the way to the Grand Canyon fifty miles to the north.  In the deserts of central Arizona stands of Palo Verde and even groups of healthy Saguaro, have begun to shrivel.  Driving along the southern coast of California last year, where my granddad homesteaded 1898, even the ubiquitous oaks were leafless and defenseless.   Hell, then just a long ugly drive across Los Angeles on every single block, in every city and neighborhood, you'd see lined up dead and dying trees.  Alberta and British Columbia, Alaska and the Yukon . . . all the way down the spine of the North America all manner of trees right down to my property are falling like flys. Billions and billions of flys.

I asked the silviculturists at the local Forest Service office if they have any historical records, or prehistoricall data, that can put what I see in perspective.  You do not want to know what they said, other than yes, a big change is coming.  And don't give me any malarkey about it's just the beetles, or a normal cycle, or some other nonsense.   Yeah, beetles are affected by the weather.  But that's the point, isn't it?  Cycles come and go, don't they?  Yes they do, but I doubt you all are prepared for this one.  After all, dinosaurs were part of a cycle too.  This is continental ecotonal change.  Is it climate change?  Is it Anthropogenic Global Warming?  Or is it the U.N.?  Or Agenda 21? Or actually Goldman Sachs, or George Soros, or carbon credits, or the Maunder Minimum that's at fault.  Hell, I'm no genius.  I don't know what it is.

But perhaps all you geniuses, instead of mouthing off about stuff you know nothing about, should just go ask a tree, while you still can! Fuck you all.  I'd take a tree over a human any day.

I agree that you are "no genius". Do you know who are? PhD climate researches who have spent their lives to study this terrible problem and the leagues of other scientist who now have a larger theory to tie into their research i.e. "why are ll the trees dying". lol "i know i'm no genius".

Probably they aren't.

Certainly the die-off is a multifaceted issue - everything is not AGW. Humility in the face of the unknown is a good thing.

Climate change is not unknown. It is happening now and getting worse. Duh. Zero hedgers missing some big upside on GRN wow. Will it trade with an 11 handle today? To think I noticed this little ETN back in 2013 with a 4 handle. I should've gone all in!

Yep, everything is always changing - naturally. So why are the trees dying? Possibly lack of water thru less rainfall? The sahara desert was green and had lakes 12,000yrs ago - it was kept that way by monsoon rains that powered inland due to heating in the warmer climate back then (hotter it gets the bigger the monsoons and hurricanes). But the climate cooled - naturally, and the lower heating led to the sahara drying out. The dry spell in California etc are all symptomatic of cooling over the oceans leading to less moisture pickup and less force to drive to rain inland.

Possibly your trees are dying at altitude due to lack of CO2? Co2 is heavier than air and the small amount (0.34%) in atmosphere is almost all within 10,000ft of sealevel. Thats one reason for the marked treeline on mountains (can be a cold line or a low CO2 line). Until proper studies are done then who really knows why the trees are dying back, but its dumb to just go 'trees die so must be mans fault' - thats not science. Alas the jerks at NOAA are not scientists (no more than economists are!) because they do not employ the scientific method of impartial obervation leading to a hypothesis. They have formed a hypothesis and now seek data and modify data to prove their religious hypothesis true. Sad the observed data doesnt fit. Thats why NOAA refuses to use accurate satellite data instead of the stuff they can observe and manipulate in their carpark.

I'm in the So. Calif Mojave Desert aka the High Desert.  We haven't had any temperatures that would be normal.  It's fucking August and we've yet had a day at 115 or so.  This summer, in fact, has been much cooler than usual.  Most days have been in the 90's.  A couple over 100. 

Exactly how many hurricanes were generated in July, or this year?  One? (well, two now, but a 75 mph wind is a breeze here.)  In the Pacific (didn't we used to call them Typhoons, when did they become fucking hurricanes?), that brought a shitload of rain into the desert.

Way back in 2006 or so, the site Human Events, had someone show how the original data used to claim global warming was fudged by computer programming.  I read the programming...I did the math.  Global warming is as much bullshit as global cooling was back in the 70's.  It's a funding scam.

AGW proponents have recently been caught altering decades old temperature records in order to make the past appear to have been cooler than it was. They have also changed the pre-1990 rate of sea level rise because the current rate shows no increase and so the past records must be altered to fit current models.

 

“We are looking at all the available sea-level records and trying to say that Greenland has been melting at this rate, the Arctic at this rate, the Antarctic at this rate, etc.,” she continued. “We then sum these contributions and add in the rate that the oceans are changing due to thermal expansion to estimate a rate of global mean sea-level change.”

To the researchers’ surprise, Hay said, it quickly became clear that previous estimates of sea-level rise over most of the 20th century were too high.

“We expected that we would estimate the individual contributions, and that their sum would get us back to the 1.5 to 1.8 mm per year that other people had predicted,” Hay said. “But the math doesn’t work out that way. Unfortunately, our new lower rate of sea-level rise prior to 1990 means that the sea-level acceleration that resulted in higher rates over the last 20 years is really much larger than anyone thought.”

Note how they are very concerned because now that they have altered past data they can conclude that the seas are rising very quickly!

Might not be as hot if "They" hadn't burnt up the ozone layer with harrp because it was fun.

Buy GRN. Short USO. Sheeple.

FYI  All of July through to the 13th of August saw the most insufferable humid heat I have ever known in Switzerland and throughout Eastern Europe. Insufferable. Humid heat without the storms of the HOT 2003.

I am moving to Iceland.

Too many people are devout believers in this incidious fraud.   I know some pretty sharp people who will say adamantly and condescendingly that "the science has been proven" but oddly, when one requests that they explain the science, excuses take priority somehow.   Wait until global cooling is blamed on human activity, it's coming.

I am utterly ashamed and actually sick and tired of being part of humanity now.

Ask folks if they agree with climate scientists like NASA's James Hansen who says that carbon is a more dangerous pollutant than radioactivity. Ask them if they want fewer coal fired power plants and more nuclear plants as the AGW scientists suggest.

 

Top climate change scientists' letter to policy influencers


"Quantitative analyses show that the risks associated with the expanded use of nuclear energy are orders of magnitude smaller than the risks associated with fossil fuels."

There is simply no doubt that these scientists are insane.

They will find a way to link global cooling to global warming somehow.

 

Biggest fraud of the century (after 911)

Pretty easy actually.

Let's say we put more energy into the system and heat the oceans up a bit. This means much more water vapor coming out of the oceans. This in turn heads up into the atmosphere, where it radiates away its heat and comes back down as rain and snow. The result: in some places you may actually get a rapid increase in glacier sizes because of the extra snow, and the temp change may be debatable as the water vapor acts as a secondary conduit of heat off the planet.

Therefore, global warming can cause an ice age :D

Not to mention that the rise in CO2 means increased crops, increased forestation, and increased food production and increased OXYGEN.  WHICH IS A HIGHLY FLAMMABLE GAS!!!!!! Man, that CO2 has got to go, we can't have deflationary food prices!  That would be unAmerican!!

You are sick and tired of Humanity? Move to Mars, haole. Your CO2 emissions are not welcome here. Buy GRN. Short USO. Remember my words. you will cringe in 10 years when you look at those charts. Wake up sheeple!

In southeastern North Carolina, July was a piece of cake (by historical standards).  August is pleasant and I think THE best in my 20 years here.  Thank you Al Gore for your efforts to prevent warming.

However, I would NOT recommend that anyone else move here.

yep, from a hot border state, it flies in the face of empirical evidence. Absolutely cooler for years now and looking forward to a nice cold and snowy winter.

A lot of these idiots are lecturing to people with history and good memories to counter any bogus manipulated data.

These people should be rounded up. destroying raw data is a major crime.

that is temp paradise. Nice. we just got an insane august cool front. lol these effers, killing me.
