Who needs data? Time Mag. Calls it 11 months early!: ‘2016 Expected to Be the Warmest Year on Record’
Not all warmists agree. See UN Scientist Dr. Kevin Trenberth: ‘My guess is that 2016 may not be warmer than 2015′ “My guess is that 2016 may not be warmer than 2015,” said Kevin Trenberth, a climate change and El Niño expert at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. He thinks the current El Niño may already have begun to peak (or have peaked) and thus that the second half of 2016 may cool down again somewhat)
Time: ‘2016 Expected to Be the Warmest Year on Record’

The first month of the year isn’t even over yet and as people in the Northeast are digging their way out of one of the biggest snowstorms in recorded history, Time magazine has a message for you: “2016 Expected to Be the Warmest Year on Record.” Yes, they couldn’t even wait for the temperature readings to be evaluated in the months to come to make that prediction. Just as much of the mainstream media have already declared 2014 and 2015 based on highly questionable evidence, they are already declaring 2016 to be even hotter based on absolutely no evidence other than pretending to read future temperatures.
Time was so eager to dive into their “hottest year on record” shtick they couldn’t even wait until 2016 started to issue their proclamation. It was actually made on December 17, 2015 as reported by Justin Worland:
Next year will likely be the warmest on record thanks to El Niño and ongoing climate change, according to a new report.
The research, published by the British Met Office, suggests that the average global temperature in 2016 will be between 0.72°C (1.29°F) and 0.96 °C (1.73°F) higher than the average temperature in the second half of the 20th century. Last year was the hottest year ever recorded and meteorologists say that 2015 will beat that record handily barring an unexpected change.
Umm… No. Last year was not the hottest year ever recorded…if you check out the facts from climate scientists who aren’t receiving government grants to validate the pre-determined global warming outcome. One such scientist is MIT climate scientist Dr. Richard Lindzen who makes this observation:
“Frankly, I feel it is proof of dishonesty to argue about things like small fluctuations in temperature or the sign of a trend. Why lend credibility to this dishonesty?” Lindzen, an emeritus Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at MIT, told Climate Depot shortly after the announcements.
“All that matters is that for almost 40 years, model projections have almost all exceeded observations. Even if all the observed warming were due to greenhouse emissions, it would still point to low sensitivity,” Lindzen continued.
“But, given the ‘pause.’ we know that natural internal variability has to be of the same order as any other process,” Lindzen wrote.
