If you thought it was hot in 2014, it wasn’t just you. Last year was the hottest on earth since the beginning of record-keeping in 1880.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, in its annual global climate report published today, confirmed an initial forecast based on data from January through October.

Across the world’s land and oceans, the average temperature was nearly 1.24°F (0.69°C) above the 20th century average. The next hottest years were 2005 and 2010.

Of course, some will argue that one year is just a single data point. They’d be right about that, but let’s take a look at a set of data points plotted over time:

201401-201412

So as Senators get forced to declare whether they believe in climate change or not, this is a story where a picture speaks a thousand degrees:

NOAA's Picture of Global Temperatures Speaks 1,000 Degrees ...

NOAA’s Picture of Global Temperatures Speaks 1,000 Degrees …

let’s just listen to some of the ignorant politicians who hum and haw about whether or not we’re even adversely affecting the earth. then delay the meeting.

Remember not to mention SRM / Geo Engineering / ENMOD / HAARP

NOAA quietly revises website after getting caught in global warming lie, admitting 1936 was hotter than 2012 July 01, 2014 by: J. D. Heyes

NOAA’s US Historical Climatology Network (USHCN) has been ‘adjusting’ its record by replacing real temperatures with data ‘fabricated’ by computer models,” the paper’s Christopher Booker wrote. “The effect of this has been to downgrade earlier temperatures and to exaggerate those from recent decades, to give the impression that the Earth has been warming up much more than is justified by the actual data.”
The real data, Booker said, “show that the US has actually been cooling since the Thirties, the hottest decade on record.”

“…a picture speaks a thousand degrees”…or…more accurately…a THOUSANDTH of a degree.

You guys KNOW this “hottest” claim is riddled with holes, yet you push it anyhow, because it caters to your confirmation bias.

the IPCC, has admitted there has been no global warming for 17 years.

U3O8

Of course except for 1936. Oh yea & but don’t mention the books are cooked by on the data the computer inputs no ACTUAL vs. projected hypothesized data. Not too mentioned the 5 rejected IPCC reports. Please, NASA has ZERO credibility now thanks to the PTB.

rms

This claim by NOAA and NASA has been debunked by NASA even. You need to read a bit more widely.

It is really sad when even whowhatwhy is fooled into propagating the propaganda of the human causation movement.

The climate change conversation is the perfect cover for the Full Spectrum Dominance folks who are working on and testing and probably using, by now, weather weapons. No scientific slouch, one of Bernard Eastlund’s earlier patents spawned an array of ionospheric heaters around the world. Patent 20070238252 A1 (Cosmic Particle Ignition) talks about weather modification and manipulating the jet stream with off-the-shelf microwave equipment. The perfect weapon, along with viruses and food. But, to get through the giant loophole in the EnMod treaty, they’ve got to get us all screaming: “Save us from the terrible weather!”–which so many people are so quick to do, right on cue.

I wish someone would find and interview Booz Allen-guy Matt Andersson, author of the letter to the Guardian “At War Over Geoengineering.”

A 2006 article about modifying the atmosphere/ionosphere via plasma, which I think relates to Eastlund’s patent below perfectly:

The last paragraph predicts the technology should be nailed within 5 years–which was 3 years ago.

Aww, bunk, the extra heat is ALL geothermal. I realize the work of Dr. J. Marvin Herndon has been
entirely dismissed since he first published in 1992 (competing
single-discipline Western scientists refuse to peer review him). He has only
been published in Current Science of the Indian Academy of Sciences, where they
conduct multi-discipline peer review. The Indians are no slouches in basic
science. They aren’t buying the AGW hysteria. The naturally occurring fission
reactors at the core of every planet are due to accretion of the heaviest
elements (the fissionable Actinides) going to the core of every gas giant (starting
point of all planets and all stars) and going critical. Such naturally
occurring fission was initially described by Paul Kazuo Kuroda and subsequently
demonstrated at Oklo, Gabon, West Africa in 1972. Fusion in all stars is due to
the fission trigger at the core of the star. As Dr. Herndon describes, the
GeoReactor is a Fast Neutron breeder reactor, self-limiting on temperature,
like Chernobyl. At the Earth’s core, the containment structure is half a
billion psi. As the non-fissionable daughter elements (say, Neodymium and
Ruthenium) accumulate in the core, they dampen criticality (cooling period).
After the non-fissionables diffuse out, criticality re-establishes (warming
period). Examining Paleoclimatological data since pre-Roman times, the full heating
/ cooling cycle is about nine (9) centuries. It was broader in timing and
temperature swings during the major Ice Ages and warm Interglacials. The
GeoReactor generates all lighter elements and small life-giving molecules, CO2
most certainly included. Vastly more than human activity. http://www.nuclearplanet.com/

Are you kidding me? And I thought this was an actual journalistic site.
