If you are under 34, you have never experienced a month of below average temperatures | Greg Jericho

Of course the Extinction Rebellion protesters are angry. You should be too

No big deal, just the hottest global average temperature in the 140 years of records kept by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Not coincidentally, in the same month, Arctic sea-ice coverage hit a record low of 19.8% below average. Down our end of the planet, Antarctic sea-ice also shrank to an unprecedented level – some 4.3% below the 1981-2010 average.

I guess that depends on where you live now, doesn’t it? ClimateChangeHoax

By 2010 he had changed to saying “the world hasn’t warmed since 2001”.

Here’s a little statistic to wrap your head around. The last year to experience global annual temperatures below the 1951-1980 average was 1976 – so if you are less than 43 years old you have never experienced a year with below average temperatures.

But looking at total life is somewhat deceptive because of the past 42 straight years of above-average temperatures.

By contrast, I was born in 1972 and 89% of my first 40 years were hotter than the 1951-1980 average.

While 57% of our population has never experienced a year of below-average temperatures, only 45% of people above voting age can say that. And of current parliamentarians, just 18% of MPs and 11% of senators have never known a below-average year.

And what is worse is that if we exclude land use, that 26% cut is a mere 15% below 2005 levels:

But no one thinks it will be a linear trend. The path suggested by the IPCC is closer to an exponential trend, in which we will hit 1.5C above pre-industrial levels by 2029 and 2C by 2042, when my daughter will be 10 years younger than I am now.

So are those involved in the Extinction Rebellion angry? You’re damn right they are.

apdonaldson You have, is just that the records have been changed so you can’t prove it. Unless you count the record cold temps we had across North America in the past 2 years. fakenews climatealarmism ballyhea14 Bad phrasing of the headline. Left out the word 'global'. And how do you actually experience a global temperature ? Tour all 195 countries and the seas in between !

Laurie_Garrett California this past February? What about march last year. chrisb_bose Who’s gonna explain to them how averages work? You won’t have experienced the Medieval Warm Period or the Little Ice Age either. I have. It was so dead and cold foxes started swarming the suburbs looking for food. 2009 I think? Birmingham’s. Maybe it wasn’t a full month but it was bad 🤷‍♂️ I’m 36 tho so it doesn’t count anyway 😏

No-deal Brexit would push borrowing above £100bn, IFS warnsIFS says the government is now operating with no effective fiscal rules and has abandoned balancing the books by the mid-2020s. Their reputation on economic forecasts is laughable. But the Conservatives are the party of fiscal responsibility! But serious, what do they have to offer at this point but racism and hating poor people? From the same people who said the country would fall straight into recession when we voted to leave 🤔 ProjectFear
