2015 Temperatures Breaking Planet's All-Time Records Since 1880, & More



Global Digest Comments

There is a absurd paradox here for cynical minds?. Are climate deniers funding the  expedition to Pluto to discover ways to cool things off on Earth. You never know with those kooks?

Seriously, the thermometer is not going the right way and there is growing evidence in various forms that indicate that the feedback loops are accelerating.  The terrible problem is that we may be past the point on no return along "Donner's Passage" with no plausible rescue  parties arriving to save the day or  to at least mitigate  the inevitable.



One positive observation about the floating snowball (Non-Planet) Pluto is that the mountains are made from ice, so the existence of water elsewhere in the universe suggests  very strongly that there are other possible life forms and life systems in existence. Water being the essence of such constructions. That's good news, but how is it going to help the practical issues of today?








Ocean Temperatures At Record High


Of all the excess heat that results from people's emissions, 93.4% goes into oceans. Accordingly, ocean heat has strongly increased over the years.

NOAA analysis shows that, for the oceans on the Northern Hemisphere, the June 2015 sea surface temperature was at a record high 0.87°C (1.57°F) above the 20th century average of 16.4°C (61.5°F), as also illustrated by the graph below.




World Breaks Temperature Record as Climate Summit Nears




Earth warmed to a record in the first half of the year, putting new pressure on nations from the U.S. to China to try to curb climate change at a United Nations summit in Paris this December.

Global land and sea surface temperatures from January through June were 1.53 degrees Fahrenheit above the 20th century average, the highest since recordings started in 1880, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said in a report. The previous record was in 2010.
There was “record warmth across the western United States, parts of northern South America, several regions in central to western Africa, central Asia around and to the east of the Caspian Sea and parts of southeastern Asia,” the NOAA said.


Investment in solar alone will outstrip that of coal generation, with a significant impact on coal 

imports.


Emissions intensity, which was increasing until shortly before June 2012, fell continuously for the two years to June 2014. Since then, it has increased consistently.






The first ever high-resolution image of Pluto was beamed back to Earth on Wednesday showing water ice and 11,000ft (3,350 metre) mountains. The mountains likely formed n 100 million years ago - mere youngsters relative to the 4.56-billion-year age of the solar systemStunning first hi-definition image of Pluto reveals huge 11,000 foot mountains made of water ice and a geologically active surface
