Temperature data for 2016 shows it is likely to have edged ahead of 2015 as the world's warmest year. Data from Nasa and the UK Met Office shows temperatures were about 0.07 degrees Celsius above the 2015 mark.
Although the Met Office increase was within the margin of error, Nasa says that 2016 was the third year in a row to break the record. The El Niño weather phenomenon played a role, say scientists, but the main factor was human emissions of CO2.
The alternative news is gamely trying to inform the public about the truth behind the "Fake News" such as this:
Climate-change-fight cost: $100,000,000,000,000
'To reduce temperature by a grand total of 3/10 of 1 degree'
Climate change has become a pseudo-scientific cottage industry and a money-maker for its perpetrators. Alarm is being sounded about the Arctic and the Antarctic ice caps melting...of course nobody can go down and check so they can say the ice is turning red...and some folks will believe it. The cardinal rule of Fake News is that it's based on the premise that almost nobody reads more than the headline. Thus, they can say things like the ability of humans to survive has been put at risk due to climate change...droughts obstensibly caused by "global warming". Like I say, the two separate concepts...CO2 caused global warming...and the ongoing "weaponization" of the weather via Tesla technology have been hopelessly conflated--and confusion reigns supreme. Meanwhile, I'm trying to think back to the last time I saw a natural (not chemtrail) cloud in the sky. Decades, perhaps. All I know is that Canada better pay it's carbon tax...or they might "shut off" the good weather. You know what I mean.
Canada is certainly trying to do its part. Here in Vancouver, we recently hired a "well known environmentalist" to guide our green policy.
