Global Temperature Update for January 2019

 

Global Temperature in January was the fourth warmest in the 140 year record since 1880

The warmest January’s were 2016 (+1.15C), 2017 (+0.97C), 2007 (+0.94C), 2019 (+0.88C)

 

Northeastern Canada was unusually cool, 3.6C below normal

SIberia and Northwestern Canada were more than +5C above normal

Australia experienced a scorching summer, about +3C above normal

United States was warmer than normal even though they experienced an Arctic vortex behaviour

I have a feeling we are going to see some nasty hurricanes in 2019 because of these extreme temperatures...

You called it, category 5 cyclone in the northern hemisphere.

Global Temperature Update for February 2019

 

Global Temperature in February was the third warmest in the 140 year record since 1880

The warmest February’s were 2016 (+1.34C), 2017 (+1.12C), 2019 (+0.92)

 

February temperature anomalies cover a huge range, when comparing with the 1951 - 1980 mean.

As much as 6 - 8 degrees colder in the Western Canada, Northwest and North Central US.

As much as 8 -12 degrees warmer in Northern Eurasia, Alaska and the surround Arctic.

 

Also forecast for a strong El Niño this year, if it is strong like in 2015, we will expect a very hot year in 2020 just like in 2016.

Global Temperature Update for March 2019

 

Global Temperature in March was the third warmest in the 140 year record since 1880

The warmest March’s were 2016 (+1.31C), 2017 (+1.13C), 2019 (1.11C)

 

The map of temperature anomalies shows regions in the Arctic that were more than 10°C (about 20°F) above normal (1951-1980 mean) on monthly average! Such Arctic warmth is not from local heating; it is warm air from lower latitudes. Of course, the imported air is balanced by Arctic air moving out – the 48 United States being the recipient in this case.

 

 

Polar amplification of global warming causes the jet stream to be less tightly wound, which may increase the chance of cold air outbreaks to middle latitudes. However, March, as the transition month from winter to warmer seasons, always has highly variable weather.

Global Temperature update for April 2019

 

Global Temperature in April was the Second warmest in the 140 year record since 1880

The warmest April’s were 2016 (+1.07C), 2019 (+0.99C)

 

So far the year 2019 is the 3rd warmest on record, but may become the 2nd warmest due to El Niño by the year end. Next year it is expected to be the warmest

Hang on everyone its going to be a bumpy ride to the end of this system. 😉

$60million is estimated to be spent by the organization on relief work as a result of natural disasters only this year.last year it was at $25million. We do not know  for next year. Yes a bumpy ride indeed 

I found this report dated May 2018, it states that the 25 million was revised to estimated 60 million for last year, I couldn’t find the final cost of relief work for 2018 though. https://www.jw.org/en/news/jw/region/global/love-in-action-hurricane-irma-maria-relief-work/

Global Temperature for May 2019

 

Global Temperature in May was the third warmest in the 140 year record since 1880

The warmest May’s were 2016 (+0.94C), 2017 (+0.89C), 2019 (+0.87C)

 

Most of the U.S and Canada was cool compared to the rest of the world.

 

So far 2019 is the 3rd warmest year, but residual effects of this year’s weak El Niño are likely to make it 2nd warmest.

Global Temperature for June 2019.

 

June was, easily, the hottest June on record beating prior record in June 2016.

June 2019 was (+0.93C), exceeding prior record (+0.82C) in June 2016

 

The contiguous U.S and North-Central Eurasia were cool, but parts of Europe had a record heat waves and Alaska had many wildfires.

Northern Hemisphere summer is the time of least natural variability of global temperature and June in particular has low variability, so does this record June temperature presage still higher global annual temperature records? No and Yes. Increasing greenhouse gases and Earth’s present energy imbalance continuously tend to push decades temperature higher, but El Niño variability dominates global temprature change on the time scale of a few years.

 

June got a positive kick from the current weak EL Nino. The impact of EL Nino on global temprature lags El Niño by 4.5 months. The current weak El Niño is fizzling out already, so the annual 2019 temprature is going to be high, probably second to 2016.

I find this type of information useful and for some reason keeps me calm. It gives a general explanation of what is happening right now its like a gauge on a meter, and when you see how it copies to what the bible says it really puts things into perspective of what’s to come real soon. 

 

With that said, Earth’s Energy imbalance is just one factor of many factors of what the bible lists is to happen prior to Armageddon. And we are seeing everything unfolding before our very eyes.

Yes, I do not get overly concerned with the various things happening in and to this planet since we are assured -

 

. . .But as these things start to occur, raise yourselves erect and lift YOUR heads up, because YOUR deliverance is getting near. (Luke 21:28 NWT - 2013)

Here’s a stat that you might find interesting.

 

Years it took us (Human race) to drive CO2 by 10 PPM

 

320-330 PPM - 12 Years - 1960-1972

330-340 PPM - 8 Years - 1972-1980

340-350 PPM - 6 Years - 1980-1986

350-360 PPM - 7 Years - 1986-1993

360-370 PPM - 6 Years - 1993-1999

370-380 PPM - 5 Years - 1999-2004

380-390 PPM - 5 Years - 2004-2009

390-400 PPM - 5 Years - 2009-2014

400-410 PPM - 4 Years - 2014-2018

410-415 PPM - 1 Year- 2018-2019

 

The faster these numbers goes up, the worst the climate will get, it takes 10 years for a carbon molecule to reach its heat maximum, so the effects we are feeling now are from 2009. So the CO2 that is being pumped into the atmosphere this year will feel the effects in 2029.

Global Temperature July 2019

 

July 2019 was the planet’s hottest month on record in the 140 years of record keeping.

July 2019 was (+1.17C) relative to 1880-1920, exceeding prior record (+1.06C) in July 2016

 

July 2019 also marked the 415th consecutive month and 43rd straight July that global temperatures were above the 20th century average. 

 

This July’s record is especially striking because it occurred during a weak to marginal El Niño event. While the El Niño and La Niña tend to warm and cool the atmosphere for a year or two each, these events are happening on top of longer-term warming related to human-produced greenhouse gases, so the global warm spikes are getting warmer and the cool spikes less cool.

 

So with this heat record, what’s happening up North.

- Alaskan Heat has coincided with record low sea ice extent in the Chukchi Sea to the north, as well as across the entire Arctic

- Wildfire raged across millions of acres in the Arctic

- A massive ice melt in Greenland sent 197 billion tons of fresh water pouring into the Atlantic Ocean raising sea levels in July alone by 0.2 millimeters, currently to date Greenland melted almost 300 billion tons.

- Guargantuan wildfires in SIberia and Alaska, so big you can see the smoke from space (see picture)

- Permafrost in the East SIberian Sea is melting 70 years faster than predicted

- Within 5 years it is predicted to see a Blue Ocean Event in the Arctic

Bro. Lewis. Is the within 5-year BOE prediction yours? If not, would you mind sharing the link to the source. Thanks

This is not my prediction, I’m merely just reporting from what I’ve read. This is just information.

 

First prediction came from the UPFSI panel back in late 2014, first prediction was made around 2015 - 2020 for a BOE, Stewart Scott and Paul Bechwith are in this segment.

 

 

More updated prediction is now around 2022 - 2025 timeline made by Paul Bechwick a scientist who is a climatologist and meteorologist and specializes in abrupt climate change and is a professor at the university of Ottawa. 

 

 

 

There are numerous articles that talk about it but all say many years down the road, this group of scientists are the only ones making statements on a timeline. There is a forum that are filled with amateur and professional experts alike that talk about the arctic solely and many discussions about BOE are mentioned there.

What?

 

0.2 meters?

 

Sea level rise in on 0.0033 meters per year and gradually rising. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_level_rise#/media/File:NASA-Satellite-sea-level-rise-observations-1993-Nov-2018.jpg

 

Now you are telling me that in only a month we got 0.2m?  Wow!!

Global Temperature August 2019

 

Global Temperature in August was the second warmest in the 140 year record since 1880

The warmest August’s were 2016 (+0.98C), 2019 (+0.90C)

 

Temperature anomaly for June to August reveal cool regions in North America and Northwestern Eurasia, But most of the land area in the Northern Hemisphere was unusually hot, especially in large areas in Alaska, Europe, the Middle East and Northern Africa. Almost 1500 people died as a result of the summer heat wave in France alone.
