Trump feels climate warming is a figment of people's imagination.

Since NASA controls earth studies in this country, Trump is ready to gut NASA.

Global warming does not exist under the new administration.

MEDIA ADVISORY M17-003

NASA, NOAA to Announce 2016 Global Temperatures, Climate Conditions

Climate experts from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will provide the annually-scheduled release of data on global temperatures and discuss the most important climate trends of 2016 during a media teleconference at 11 a.m. EST Wednesday, Jan. 18.

The teleconference panelists are:

Gavin Schmidt, director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York
Deke Arndt, chief of the global monitoring branch of NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information in Asheville, North Carolina
Media can participate in the teleconference by calling 888-323-5258 (toll-free in the United States and Canada) or 415-228-4837 (international) and use the passcode "climate."

Audio of the briefing, as well as supporting graphics, will stream live at:

http://www.nasa.gov/newsaudio

NASA and NOAA are two keepers of the world's temperature data and independently produce a record of Earth's surface temperatures, as well as changes based on historical observations over oceans and land.

AK, have you informed Trump, Tillerson, & Pruitt?



2016 hottest year ever recorded – and scientists say human activity to blame

• Final data confirms record-breaking temperatures for third year in a row
• Earth has not been this warm for 115,000 years

Wednesday 18 January 2017

2016 was the hottest year on record, setting a new high for the third year in a row, with scientists firmly putting the blame on human activities that drive climate change.

The final data for 2016 was released on Wednesday by the three key agencies – the UK Met Office and Nasa and Noaa in the US – and showed 16 of the 17 hottest years on record have been this century.

Direct temperature measurements stretch back to 1880, but scientific research indicates the world was last this warm about 115,000 years ago and that the planet has not experienced such high levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere for 4m years.

In 2016, global warming delivered scorching temperatures around the world. The resulting extreme weather means the impacts of climate change on people are coming sooner and with more ferocity than expected, according to scientists.

The natural El Niño climate phenomenon, which helped ramp up temperatures to “shocking” levels in early 2016, has now waned, but carbon emissions were the major factor and will continue to drive rising heat.

Gavin Schmidt, director of Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, said: “El Niño was a factor this year, but both 2015 and 2016 would have been records even without it.” He said about 90% of the warming signal in 2016 was due to rising greenhouse gas emissions. He expects 2017 to be another extremely hot year.

The new data shows the Earth has now risen about 1.1C above the levels seen before the industrial revolution, when large-scale fossil fuel burning began. This brings it perilously close to the 1.5C target included as an aim of the global climate agreement signed in Paris in December 2015.

2016 saw record highs for both land and ocean surface temperatures and set a combined global record for the third year in a row

The declaration of 2016 as a year of record-breaking heat comes just ahead of the inauguration of Donald Trump as US president. Trump has called global warming a hoax and is filling his administration with climate change deniers and former ExxonMobil boss Rex Tillerson. Tillerson said recently that climate change does exist but that the ability to predict the effects of greenhouse gas emissions is “very limited”, a statement most climate scientists would reject.

Trump’s team has said it will strip away funding for “politically correct environmental monitoring”. Presenting the 2016 temperature data, Derek Arndt, at Noaa, said only: “We present this assessment for the benefit of the American people.”

The three temperature records are independent but reached very similar conclusions. “The datasets are all singing the same song, said Arndt. The data from Noaa showed a run of 16 successive months from May 2015 to August 2016 when the global average temperature broke or equalled previous records, while no land area experienced an annual average temperature in 2016 that was cooler than 20th-century average.

Noaa also found Arctic sea ice fell to its lowest annual average extent on record and Antarctic sea ice to the second smallest extent on record. The warming in the Arctic in 2016 was “astounding”, Schmidt said.

Prof Michael Mann, a climate scientist at Pennsylvania State University, said: “The spate of record-warm years that we have seen in the 21st century can only be explained by human-caused climate change. The effect of human activity on our climate is no longer subtle. It’s plain as day, as are the impacts – in the form of record floods, droughts, superstorms and wildfires – that it is having on us and our planet.”

“While there may be some cost in mitigating climate change, there are already major costs in damages,” said Prof Kevin Trenberth, a scientist at the US National Center for Atmospheric Research, who estimates the costs as already tens of billions of dollars a year. “Yet if sensible approaches are implemented in the right way for [cutting emissions] and building resilience, the increases in energy efficiency can actually make it a net gain, not only for the planet for for everyone.”

Bob Ward, policy director at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change at the London School of Economics, said: “Any politician who denies this evidence from world-class climate scientists will be willfully turning a blind eye to rising risks that threaten the lives and livelihoods of their citizens.

“I hope that president-elect Trump and his team in particular will acknowledge and act on this important scientific information.”

The head of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), Petteri Taalas, said in November: “The extra heat from the powerful El Niño event has disappeared. The heat from global warming will continue. Because of climate change, the occurrence and impact of extreme events has risen. ‘Once in a generation’ heatwaves and flooding are becoming more regular.”

A WMO report said human-induced global warming had contributed to at least half the extreme weather events studied in recent years, with the risk of extreme heat increasing by 10 times in some cases.

The record-smashing temperatures in 2016 led to searing heatwaves across the year: a new high of 42.7C (108.9F) was recorded in Pretoria, South Africa in January; Mae Hong Son in Thailand saw 44.6C (112.3F) on 28 April; Phalodi in India reached 51.0C (123.8F) in May, and Mitribah in Kuwait recorded 54.0C (129.2F) in July. Warm oceans saw coral mortality of up to 50% in parts of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and bleaching of 75% of Japan’s biggest reef.

The level of CO2 in the atmosphere also broke records in 2016, with May seeing the highest monthly value yet – 407.7 ppm – at Mauna Loa, in Hawaii, the site of the longest-running measurements dating back to 1958.

Global carbon emissions have barely grown in the last three years, after decades of strong growth, according to an analysis published in November. The main reason is China burning less coal, but CO2 is still being emitted into the atmosphere at record levels. “CO2 will continue to rise and cause the planet to warm until emissions are cut down to near zero,” said Prof Corinne Le Quéré at the University of East Anglia.

Amid fears Donald Trump’s administration will shatter decades of hard-won progress on climate change, the Guardian, Univision and Tumblr are uniting to deliver 24 hours of live coverage from around the world on what is at stake. Hours from Trump taking power, we will be reporting from all seven continents, in English and Spanish, hearing from those most affected, the experts and publishing our audiences appeals to Trump to protect the planet.

Trump and his cabinet team of wackos...dug from the evil depths of corrupt corporate boardrooms, will bring us back to a new Dark Age for our whole planet --- And I will not stand down to these evildoers, who are nothing but domestic environmental terrorists, that are embedded in the halls of our corrupt political system.

Hi Erno. Please don't take this wrong. Just one question. Are you psychic or sumpin ? Just wondering. He's not in office yet. Why do you feel this way ? Just legitimately wondering with an open mind.....

I know how fragile our country's democratic institutions are, and I will not stand for slime ball Trump and his evil cohorts too try to take to take it all away from us.

For the record, I'm against nuclear power. I'm against fracking. I believe our climate is changing. I know we all (at least most of us) have done damage to this planet throughout time and things need to change or were all drilled..... wink

Let's give the guy a chance ? Yes, I'm concerned too. Legislation is a good thing. If they screw up, I say we battle using the system. Believe me, they do listen when numbers of people start speaking out.

I think were on the same page. I know your frustration. I'm concerned too.

I'm pro fusion power and also pro-gun. But give the guy a chance? --- I think we have no choice...unless Trump resigns or is impeached.

Meanwhile...our country and the world is gonna go down the toilet.

I too am pro fusion (not fission-but I think you knew that -wink), but not pro implosion. It too, I think, could go too far...

I believe solar power is a good thing, but screens should be in place to keep the birds from becoming extinct. There IS a way, I believe.

I went down to an old mill ( Caplinger Mills here in Missouri) today that once existed and saw the potential for a power plant. I saw free energy.....

We have great minds. Some of the best minds in the world. I'm friends with some of them. THEY ARE GREAT PEOPLE ! They have the know how and can do attitude.

Photovoltaics is another. Have you read the latest ? SO MUCH POTENTIAL ! What is now used on some of the latest satellites CAN BE USED here on Earth in solar cells ! A major change needs to be implemented soon !

cool

At a time when counties are wishing to phase out Diesel powered vehicles and even the Chinese are worried about their pollution problems, Trump intends to bring back an eighteenth century method of producing power.

All for a few votes.

Cliff,

I don't know.

I do suspect that, as many have said, it would have been 'more of the same' or something pretty close.

I think there will be many very disappointed people in the USA when they find out that Trump can't just wave a magic wand and the last twenty years of industrial decline will be reversed. The basic problem is the difference in labour costs, and this is, I think you will agree, related to the cost of living in the country. No doubt American workers could make the same items as good as the Chinese. But are they willing to make them for the same pay scale ?

He has raised may hopes. I doubt he can deliver.

At least with Hillary you would have had someone who knew their way around the corridors of power.

That is what I fear most. Trump making some really silly foreign policy decision that backfires and takes us all down with him.

My prediction.

North Korea will very soon launch a test of their ICBM. Probably just into the ocean someplace. Harmless enough.

Then they will say to the world's press

'President Trump said it ain't gonna happen; Observe the reality.

Korea 1, Trump 0.'

When President Obama met with the Prime Minister of Japan and North Korea( lil kim) fired warheads in their direction, I think it went too far then ! It should have never been allowed without retaliation ! I think it's time someone stepped up to the plate and let them know ! Just think what Reagan would have done in that scenario.... wink

We need nads in office....imho . grin

You're not dealing with a normal leader when you look at North Korea. They may go for bust. Even though they know they can't win.
