“Among other things, you'll find that you're not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behaviour. You'll learn from them—if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It's a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn't education. It's history. It's poetry.”

2016 marks three consecutive years of
record warmth for the globe
NOAA have released a report showing 2016
was the warmest year on record, it proved to be the third consecutive year this
has happened and with a firm boost from a super El Niño the first eight months, from January to
August of 2016 the globe experienced unprecedented warm heat.
With this as a catalyst, the 2016 globally
averaged surface temperature ended as the highest since record keeping began in
1880, according to scientists from NOAA's National Centers for Environmental

The average temperature across global land
and ocean surfaces in 2016 was 58.69 degrees F or 1.69 degrees F above the 20th
century average. This surpassed last year’s record by 0.07 degrees F. Since the
start of the 21st century, the annual global temperature record has been broken
five times (2005, 2010, 2014, 2015, and 2016).
As El Niño weakened later in the year the
record temperatures did begin to drop but even so the year ended with the third
warmest December on record for the globe, with an average temperature 1.42
degrees F above the 20th century average.
In a separate analysis of global
temperature data released at the same time, scientists from NASA also found
2016 to be the warmest year on record.
More noteworthy findings from 2016:
The globally averaged sea surface
temperature was the highest on record, 1.35 degree F above average.
The globally averaged land surface temperature
was the highest on record, 2.57 degrees F above average.
North America had its warmest year on
record; South America and Africa had their second; Asia and Europe had their
third; and Australia had its fifth.
The average Arctic sea ice extent for the
year was 3.92 million square miles, the smallest annual average since
record-keeping began in 1979.
The average Antarctic sea ice extent for
the year was 4.31 million square miles, the second smallest annual average
since record-keeping began in 1979.
