The Version 6.0 global average lower tropospheric temperature (LT) anomaly for March, 2021 was -0.01 deg. C, down substantially from the February, 2021 value of +0.20 deg. C.
"Right on time, the maximum impact from the current La Nina is finally being felt on global tropospheric temperatures. The global average oceanic tropospheric temperature anomaly is -0.07 deg. C, the lowest since November 2013. The tropical (20N-20S) departure from average (-0.29 deg. C) is the coolest since June of 2012. Australia is the coolest (-0.79 deg. C) since August 2014.
The linear warming trend since January, 1979 remains at +0.14 C/decade (+0.12 C/decade over the global-averaged oceans, and +0.18 C/decade over global-averaged land)."
metmike: How can we be having a climate crisis from excessive global warming.............when there hasn't been global warming for numerous years?
From the residual affects of previous global warming?
But the case is that it's the magnitude or rate of the so called unprecedented warming that makes it a crisis.
-0.1 deg C compared to the 30 year average during a cooling La Nina tells you how small the magnitude is. The change in global temperature is so small, that 1 (not even big) La Nina bring us back to the average!
The false narrative is that the warming is accelerating. The authentic science, screams loudly, telling us that is false.
Here in Evansville IN, we just tied the record for the latest measurable snow in history.
April 20, 1904 was the last and only other time that it snowed this late!
