I was just looking at recent data from NOAA for contiguous U.S. average temperature during the two hottest months of the year, July/August, going back to 1895 in degrees/F. I chose to compared the last five year average to a five year average in the 1930s, the long term mean and the hottest July/August.

 

1934-1938----------74.62
2014-2018----------73.79
1895-2018 mean--73.01  
Hottest--1936------75.70

The Chill of Solar Minimum


SABER monitors infrared emissions from carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitric oxide (NO), two substances that play a key role in the energy balance of air 100 to 300 kilometers above our planet’s surface. By measuring the infrared glow of these molecules, SABER can assess the thermal state of gas at the very top of the atmosphere–a layer researchers call “the thermosphere.”


As 2018 comes to an end, the Thermosphere Climate Index is on the verge of setting a Space Age record for Cold. “We’re not there quite yet,” says Mlynczak, “but it could happen in a matter of months.”

Well George, I'm glad that you have the ‘feels’ for how good Brazil is progressing in terms of it’s climate.

 

Unfortunately neither NASA nor Lloyds of London tend to feel that everything is just fine and dandy down there. Now why would that be? Do you think they may have some greater insight into Climate Change than your good self?

 

The PDF is rather interesting as I’m sure you’ll agree after reading it.

So... until your "sky is falling" predictions come true we will just continue to enjoy our moderate winters and summers I guess.

 

We do have too much political corruption, that much is true.

An exploding meteor may have wiped out ancient Dead Sea communities
A meteor that exploded in the atmosphere instantaneously destroyed civilization in a 25-kilometer-wide circular plain called Middle Ghor. The event also pushed a bubbling brine of Dead Sea salts over once-fertile farm land, Silvia and his colleagues suspect.
