    Default The Warming Earth

    Now that it's over, we can say for sure:
    2016 was the warmest year we've ever measured on Earth.

    Your last graph on ice melt showed data for Jan 31st 2017 ergo you are trolling this site, a violation of house rules

    The last date shown on the chart is Dec 30, 2016

    The value on that date was 133,781 sq km

    In case you cannot see the captured image, it comes from the top of the chart that we are talking about and says

    Current value (30-Dec-2016): 133,781 km˛

    With enough evidence, even skepticism will thaw

    Half a decade before he took this trip to the
    farthest reaches of the north, Andreas Muenchow had his doubts about
    whether warming temperatures were causing one of the world’s great
    platforms of ice to melt and fall apart.

    He even stood before Congress in 2010 and balked on whether climate
    change might have caused a mammoth chunk of ice, four times the size of
    Manhattan, to break off from this floating, 300-square-mile shelf. The
    University of Delaware oceanographer said he wasn’t sure. He needed more
    evidence.

    But then the Petermann Ice Shelf lost another two Manhattans of ice in
    2012, and Muenchow decided to see for himself, launching a project to
    study the ice shelf intensively.

    Seems pretty cool..The little one line non data wrap up at the end seems sketchy though..

    Yes, Some Extreme Weather Can Be Blamed on Climate Change

    Droughts, wildfires, heat waves, intense rainstorms—these are all
    extreme weather phenomena that occur naturally. But climate change is
    now increasing the frequency and magnitude of many of these events.
    Flooding in Paris and the Arctic heat wave are just two instances where
    climate change contributed to extreme weather in 2016—and there are many
    more examples.

    Yet how do scientists know that global warming influenced a specific
    event? Until recently, they couldn’t answer this question, but the field
    of “attribution science” has made immense progress in the last five
    years. Researchers can now tell people how climate change impacts them,
    and not 50 or 100 years from now—today.
