NOAA has reported that July, 2009, produced the hottest ocean surface temp on record. Of course, those records don’t reach back millenia to previous climate changes. Those careless Cro-Magnon just didn’t have good thermometers. However, ice core samples tell us some of what’s happened in previous temperature shifts Here’s what NOAA has to say: “The planet’s ocean surface temperature was the warmest on record for July, breaking the previous high mark established in 1998 according to an analysis by NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C. The combined average global land and ocean surface temperature for July 2009 ranked fifth-warmest since world-wide records began in 1880.
“The combined global land and ocean surface temperature for July 2009 was the fifth warmest on record, at 1.03 degrees F (0.57 degree C) above... [Read More]
