How can this be? Because we’re talking about temperatures over LAND, where people actually live.
NASA and NOAA have been confusing us (Deliberately? No, never.) by including OCEAN temperatures in their pronouncements of hottest year ever. They somehow forgot to remind us that ocean temperatures had risen due to the very powerful El Niño.
Anyway, here’s what Tony Heller has to say about the cooling:
Over the last eight months, global temperatures over land have cooled a record 1.2 C. November is seeing record cold in Russia and South Australia, so we should see the record cooling trend continue.
