Global warming champion Al Gore
2016 is to be the warmest year on record as was 2015 before it, leaving the global warmist’s fraternity with a smug, told you so look on their faces. However 2015 was the beginning of one of the strongest El-Niño on record and 2016 was the back end of the super strong event which accounted for 16 months in a row of record warmth for the globe, the longest such streak in 137 years. September this year saw that run stop and October was also cooler meaning our planet is cooling and the powerful El-Niño has gone. Global warming is primarily a problem of too much carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere according to scientists, which acts as a blanket, trapping heat and warming the planet. As we burn fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas for energy or cut down and burn forests to create pastures and plantations, carbon accumulates and overloads our atmosphere, let’s just stop there and look at some remarkable statistics.
Stunning new data indicates El Nino drove record highs in global temperatures suggesting rise may not be down to man-made emissions.
The Daily Mail reported this week; Global average temperatures over land have plummeted by more than 1C since the middle of this year – their biggest and steepest fall on record. The news comes amid mounting evidence that the recent run of world record high temperatures is about to end. The fall, revealed by NASA satellite measurements of the lower atmosphere, has been caused by the end of El Nino – the warming of surface waters in a vast area of the Pacific west of Central America.
NASA claim the Antarctic ice sheet showed a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001, slowing to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008.
A new NASA study says that an increase in Antarctic snow accumulation that began 10,000 years ago is currently adding enough ice to the continent to outweigh the increased losses from its thinning glaciers. The research challenges the conclusions of other studies, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) 2013 report, which says that Antarctica is overall losing land ice. According to the new analysis of satellite data, the Antarctic ice sheet showed a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001. That net gain slowed to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008. That is 112 to 82 billion tons a year GAIN NOT LOSS.
