Global and sea surface temperatures continue to set all-time records

Global heat wave pushes planet into uncharted territory.  (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 3/17/2016)
Not 1998 as hottest, as many Republicans want you to believe.To be sure, some of this is the result of a monster El Nino weather pattern lingering in the Pacific Ocean. But the broader trend is clear: We live on a planet that is warming rapidly, with no end in sight.Since 1980, the world has set a new annual temperature record roughly every three years, and 15 of the hottest 16 years ever measured are in the 21st century.

On land and sea, November 2015 was warmest November globally since recordkeeping began.  (12/24/2015)
