"Here's Some More Good News"
Last month was the hottest April on record globally – the seventh month in a row that has broken the monthly record.
The latest figures smashed the previous record for April by the largest margin ever recorded.
It makes three months in a row that the monthly record has been broken by the largest margin ever, and seven months in a row that are at least 1C above the 1951-80 mean for that month. When the string of record-smashing months started in February.
Scientists are calling this a “climate emergency”.
Figures released by Nasa over the weekend show the global temperature of land and sea was 1.11C warmer in April than the average temperature for April during the period 1951-1980.
It all but assures that 2016 will be the hottest year on record.
Climate scientists have been warning about this since at least the 1980s. And it’s been obvious since the 2000s.

Ain't that swell...but wait there's more.
Ben Carson, the neurosurgeon turned presidential candidate turned unfiltered pitchman for Donald Trump and now part of the presumptive nominee’s vice presidential search committee. Dr. Carson stated today that former Alaska governor Sarah Palin was being considered as Donald Trump's Vice Presidential Nominee.
Well there we are. No,...lets go for the Trifecta!
Apparently there's yet another sort of nuclear bomb out there...big one too. Seems the Russians have a new sort of suitcase nuke. Sure these have been around for decades, but none this powerful. These things are intended for battlefield use. They're light weight, and can be carried by just one soldier.
The new twist is that the bang for buck has gone over the top.
These gleeful things up to now had the power of perhaps one fifth the strength of the Hiroshima bomb. Now in our happy, and enlighten days this new job has a One to Five Megaton blast potential.
Wow I feel better already.
Not only that, but the damned thing is "Smaller", and lighter than the Cold war era models. So any drooling jerks on the street can now be a Nuclear Power unto themselves. Yeah I sleep better at night knowing this. So all it takes is some Russian who hasn't been paid in a few months to get ideas about the stuff he's guarding.
Hey I understand there's a sweet market out there for this sort of thing.
See this all this is why I stopped watching TV or reading anything. I'd rather be uniformed, and stupid with all this going on. I finally understand the values of the American proles.
Orwell was so right...
