Oh, Noes, July Was The Hottest July In 4.5 Billion Years!!!!!!

We’re doomed, doomed I tell you, all because you, dear reader, refused to allow Government to regulate your entire life

(USA Today[1]) July was the hottest month worldwide since records began being kept in 1880, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced Thursday.

The temperature in July, when averaged for all locations around the planet, was 61.86 degrees, topping the previous hottest months of July 1998 and July 2010. (snip)

This meshes with data from NASA and the Japan Meteorological Administration released earlier this week. NASA said temperatures in July 2015 beat the previous record in July 2011 by .036 degrees.

I don’t know about you, but that .036F suddenly makes me sweat profusely. It makes it too hot to golf, and turns swimming pools into hot tubs!

Climate change is changing Earth at a pace not seen in 4.5B years.
I can’t help but wonder: Where is all the outrage?http://t.co/GOxhKFUzVD[2]

Poor Eric. He’s roundly abused, as pointed out at Twitchy[4].

None of this proves mostly/solely anthropogenic causation, just something that happens during a Holocene warm period, as records show.

Anyhow, regarding that doomy warmth

(Jo Nova[5]) NOAA has a press release out being picked up around the world. For example, the DailyMail, UK, is saying July was the hottest month since records began in 1880 as heatwaves swept the Earth’s countries and oceans[6]. Other silly tabloids have headlines about this being the hottest July in 4,000 years, as if we have even the remotest idea what the average July global temperature was in the days of Plato.

Better data shows July this year is the hottest since way back in…  2014. It’s not 4,000 years, not 135 years, it’s the hottest July since the last one.

We only have 30 years of good climate data: the satellites tell us the pause is real[7], and last month’s summer temperatures is not a record anything. According to the UAH and RSS global satellites, lower troposphere averages for July 2014 were 0.30C and 0.34C, compared to July 2015 of 0.28C. Even, June 2015 was hotter (UAH, 0.35C; RSS, 0.39C).
July 2015 is not even the hottest month since June.

In other words, what we’re seeing is more over-wrought hysteria, meant to scare people, and journalists aren’t even bothering with research. Just parroting press releases. And none of it proves anthropogenic causation.

Nor do any of the journalists wonder why members of the Cult of Climastrology mostly refuse to give up their own big carbon footprints.
