Well once again we are breaking records:

""The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for May 2015 was the highest for May in the 136-year period of record, at 0.87°C (1.57°F) above the 20th century average of 14.8°C (58.6°F), surpassing the previous record set just one year ago by 0.08°C (0.14°F)"

Well, this doesn't sound good for those living there...

“The 21st-century projections make the [previous] mega-droughts seem like quaint walks through the garden of Eden,” said Jason Smerdon, a co-author and climate scientist at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory."
Climate change is likely to cause decade-long mega-droughts across US south-west and Great Plains, new study shows

Off the charts...
 
Yes, 2014 was a record-breaker for earth's surface temperature, as many of us can attest to. But what about the oceans? Yup, off the charts hot.

For those of us who look at numbers, charts, etc. for a living, that is one of the most extreme and consistent trends I've seen.  Scary is right.

" 2014 was the hottest year on record. Not with absolute certainty — just with enough of it for an imperfect world."

"Climate scientists use complex computer simulations as numerical laboratories to conduct experiments because we don’t have a bunch of spare Earths just lying around"

If anyone want't to know, it's still warm, no changes in that really. Data from NOAA for February shows the same usual trend...get used to it, as it will keep on going like this.

"Turning to the global picture, meeting our two-degree commitment in a cost-effective way means leaving all unconventional oil and 82 per cent of unconventional gas resources in the ground, according to the model. That means Canada's tar sands and the 100 billion barrels of oil estimated to exist in the Arctic would need to go untouched, the paper explains"

"Iceland is rising because of climate change, with land freed by the melting of the ice caps rebounding from the Earth at a rate of up to 1.4in per year.
The downside? Researchers believe the extra uplift could be behind an increase in volcanic activity, with three Icelandic eruptions in the last five years shutting down flights and spewing ash in the air.
In new research published in Geophysical Research Letters, scientists from the University of Arizona and the University of Iceland found the earth’s crust rising at a much faster rate amid the greater warming of the last 30 years".

"Skeptics who still doubt anthropogenic climate change have now been stripped of one of their last-ditch arguments: It is true that there has been a warming hiatus and that the surface of Earth has warmed up much less rapidly since the turn of the millennium than all the relevant climate models had predicted. However, the gap between the calculated and measured warming is not due to systematic errors of the models, as the skeptics had suspected, but because there are always random fluctuations in Earth's climate, according to a comprehensive statistical analysis".
