I see it's time for Christopher Monckton, the Great Lord Denier, to come out with another of his ridiculous claims that there has been no warming for xx number of years (time span to be determined). That's because NOAA released the September Global Analysis today showing this last September to be the hottest September ever recorded. It also had the highest departure from average ever recorded for any month. That was the fifth consecutive hottest month in a row. January through September 2015 is the hottest such period ever recorded.
Tell us, Mr. Monckton, if there has been no warming, why do the months keep getting hotter?
far, 2015 has seven hottest months ever recorded, one second hottest month, and one
third hottest month, not to mention the hottest of all
1629 measured months (July).
For the last 12 months, the tally is:
August 2015 was the hottest August ever recorded;
July 2015 was the hottest July (and hottest any month) ever recorded;
June 2015 was the hottest June ever recorded;
May 2015 was the hottest May ever recorded;
April 2015 was tied for the third hottest April ever recorded;
March 2015 was the hottest March ever recorded;
February 2015 was the hottest February ever recorded;
January 2015 was the second hottest January ever recorded;
December 2014 was the hottest December ever recorded;
November 2014 was the 7th hottest November ever recorded;
October 2014 was the hottest October ever recorded;
Adding up the score for the last 12 months gives us: one 7th hottest
month, one 3rd hottest month, one 2nd hottest month, and nine hottest
