NOAA's monthly deception again
Sure, there's been a recent temperature rise but is it caused by human activity? They dodge that all-important question. They admit that El Nino is partly responsible but fail to quantify or correct for its influence. Scientists quantify. They don't indulgle in hand-waving dismissals. Ergo, none of the guff below is science.
So what is the science? The science is that the first 8 of their 11 months of warming were at a time when there was NO CO2 rise and hence no human cause. So the recent rise is clearly an effect of El Nino only. Below is a great coverage of El Nino effects, nothing more (excerpt only)
Last month marked the hottest March in modern history, setting the longest heat streak in the 137 years of record-keeping, US officials said.
The month's average global temperature of 12.7°C (54.9°F) was not only the hottest March, but continues a record streak that started last May.
The combined average temperature in March was the highest for this month in the 1880–2016 record.
The temperature was 1.22°C (2.20°F) above the 20 century average of 12.7°C (54.9°F).
This surpassed the previous record set in 2015 by 0.32°C / (0.58°F), and marks the highest monthly temperature departure on record.
March 2016 also marks the 11 consecutive month a global temperature record has been broken, the longest such streak in 137 years.
