Scientist: 'All the hoopla about this being the hottest year ever is contradicted by findings from Antarctic ice cores that during the Eemian, the last interglacial (LIG; 130,000–115,000 years ago), global climate was warmer than today and global mean sea level was 6-9 m higher'.
'Heavily adjusted temperature dataset shows a warming trend, but can we trust it?'
'When a NASA climatologist is rooting for 2016 to be the warmest year ever, he has entered the realm of a climate activist.Make money by sharing this news. Become a Social Blaster! NASA GISS Headquarters. NASA climatologist Gavin Schmidt, who has come under fire for being more activist than scientist, sent out a tweet yesterday predicting that 2016 would be the hottest year on record and said he was 99 percent sure of that claim. According to land-and-sea-based temperature stations, July 2016 was 0.1 degrees Celsius warmer than the 1950 to 1980 timeframe. But when compared to the 1930s, July still is not a record breaker. But only if you don’t rely on an adjusted temperature dataset.'
