People say we're running out of energy. That's only true if we stick with these old 19th century technologies. We are awash in energy from sunlight.

Earth Has Its Warmest May on Record Globally, Spring Could Be Warmest

RATE THIS! +35
Posted in Science on 19th Jun, 2014 04:19 AM by AlexMuller

Centers that track surface temperatures have reported their data for May, and they both found it to be the warmest such month on record. NASA found that May had an average global temperature that was 1.38 degrees F above average, making it the warmest such month.

 

The Japanese Meteorological Agency's separate analysis also found both May and the meteorological spring months of March through May to be the warmest on record. These results are preliminary, with the data from both agencies subject to revision. NASA posted a note on its surface-temperature data website Tuesday that said "missing data" from China has not yet arrived, and that their data is not "directly comparable" to previous records.

 
Later this week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will release their global numbers, which typically closely match the other centers, but sometimes differ slightly in rankings. According to the World Meteorological Agency, all but one of the 10 warmest years on record have occurred in the 21st century.

I think that now when we can record various parameters globally and do this over time, some trends will emerge and will be a very strong evidence to support global warming - it is already clear that temperatures are increasing Reply

Warmer than average temperatures predominated during May across Australia, Europe and the western U.S. Searing heat gripped a large part of Asia also. Reply
