record temperature

like ok the highest temperature ever recorded in my city was 33.9°C (93°F) which happened in 1876
if you ever wanna get away from the summer heat and look at some big blue icebergs come to Newfoundland

2016 Sets Global Temperature Record

We just experienced the hottest year on record…again.

2016 was hotter than 2015, the previous record. And 2015 hotter than 2014, the previous record year.

These record temperatures are all part of a warming trend that dates back to the late-19th century, largely caused by human emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases into the atmosphere.

A lot of this warming trend has been in the last 35 years. In fact, 16 of the 17 warmest years on record have been since 2001.

To help us gather this data, planes and boats travel out from Antarctic research stations to gather information from the Arctic region, in addition to space-based observatories.

Scientists at our Goddard Institute for Space Studies analyze data from 6,300 weather stations, observations of sea surface temperature and Antarctic research stations, all to determine how the average surface temperature is changing.

Scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration separately analyze the same data to track global temperature.

The two agencies reached the same conclusion about 2016’s record-setting heat.

Variations in local weather mean parts of the globe did not experience a record-setting year. Some places still had snow, cold weather and below-record temperatures, but the overall global average was higher than any previous year.

For instance, according to NOAA the average temperature in the 48 contiguous United States was not quite as high as in 2015, which still holds the record.

A combination of space- and land-based measurements gives us a unique perspective on Earth, the only planet we know of that supports life.

The of the things the batclan hates, is when they have to work a mission during the day -- in the sunlight. Because when they finally take off their masks, there is a defined tan or sunburn. Bruce and Duke (sometimes Tim, depends on which suit) only have to worrying about the area around their mouth. Jason and Cass have eliminated the probably by having fully covering masks/helmet. But Dick, Damian, Steph, and Barb...? They have more to worry about. Including laughter from Cass and Jay.


The only plus side of living in Gotham is that it’s not the sunniest place in the world… which most people would not consider to be a positive, but the batclan definitely does. But sometimes… when they’re very unlucky… they have to venture out into the hot, blinding heat and light of the summer sun. 

(Prime example: that one summer the Joker thought it would be funny to flood the whole of Gotham with his laughing gas-spiked sewer water, in what he called “Joker’s Pool Party Extravaganza.” And of course this just so happened to occur on a day when Gotham experienced record highs in temperature). 

  • You’re absolutely right, Cass and Jay’s costumes mean they are well protected… but the downside is that they are also very hot and grumpy and sweaty on these days. Alfred makes sure to stress to everyone the importance of staying hydrated on these rare days after Cass forgets to drink enough water (claims it was a bother) and ends up fainting from heat stroke. But only after she’d kicked everyone’s ass, as Steph pointed out in her defence.  
  • Damian is safe from sunburns for the most part. He grew up in the desert for part of his childhood and his DNA means that he tans naturally. But the tan lines are…. very defined. Especially since he often denies the need for protection against “this sad excuse of a sun” when Alfred offers him sun tan lotion. He regrets it later. Scowling at the mask-shaped tan-lines around his eyes in the mirror.
  • As Batgirl, Barbara religiously BATHED in suntan lotion because she’s so fair. Sunburns can be really dangerous for people with her complexion, and her father taught her to always wear sun lotion after that one summer day when she was six and went to preschool without it. He’s never forgiven himself for forgetting. But it’s a special memory for both of them, those few nights the sunburn hurt too much for her to sleep, and they sat together on Daddy’s bed as he gently rubbed cool aloe vera onto her face. Oracle is more than happy to stay inside all day and listen to the other complain about the heat. (But she absolutely will sternly remind everyone to wear lotion. And has threatened to dump Dick if he didn’t put it on before going out… more than once.)
  • Everyone hates Dick because, like Damian, he usually tans more than he burns. He grew up wintering in Florida and running around outside, taking care of animals and doing chores while travelling with circus. But he can still burn and if he does, risks the wrath of his fair-skinned girlfriend giving him another long lecture about the danger of UV rays and cancer. 
  • Duke is generally safe too, and usually just forgoes the lotion (“my beautiful melanin will protect me”, “black don’t crack”, “as the infamous and controversial bard Kanye West has been quoted as saying: ‘I’m way too black to burn from sunrays’”). But after Babs sends him a series of articles about how the risk of skin cancer is still high for black people, he caves and starts wearing a light layering of SPF 15.
  • Steph is pretty at risk, but it’s actually one of the areas she is surprisingly responsible? On sunny days, sometimes she’ll go back to her old Spoiler costume to protect her skin, even if it’s hotter. Once, she and Jason both decided to use the day as an opportunity to “get that nice, tanned bikini bod” and went on patrol wearing a swimsuit and trunks with flip flops. When Bruce got mad, they pointed out they were still protecting their secret identities by still wearing their mask and helmet… but he didn’t seem convinced. 
  • According to Stephanie…………… Bruce and Tim “get burnt, not turnt.” 
  • There are many reasons why Batman operates at night… and one of the lesser known reasons is that Bruce Wayne burns veeeeeeeery easily. He learned this lesson the hard way training in the Himalayas without sun protection. Because white, rich-boy, smarty-pants, 22 year-old Brucie Wayne assumed that sun + snow ≠ increased probability of getting burnt, and thought that skiers and snowboarders wore their goggles just to keep snow out of their eyes and as a fashion statement. And yet he knew chemical formulae of common plutonium compounds by heart….
  • Tim Drake has it the worst though. By far. Something that is most definitely not helped by the fact that Tim usually lives by the philosophy of: Hack GCPD Databases While Snacking On Cheetos All Night, Sleep All Day. The boy is a vampire. Pale as a ghost. And somehow it seems, no matter how many layers he’s wearing, Tim still manages to get sunburnt???? Through layers of kevlar??? The boy is a living, breathing, walking, sunburnt enigma. 
  • Really great to meet one of the worlds leading climate scientists Dr Emily Shuckburgh last night at the Science museum. She spends a lot of her time in isolated Polar regions with the British Antarctic survey as part of her research into the global climate system. As the Earth reaches record temperatures and Antarctic sea ice continues to diminish, her passion for the natural world and yours is more important now than ever!

The necrophysician felt the zombie’s throat and pressed gently. The undead monster made a noise. “That hurts or general zombie noise?” the doctor asked.

“…general zombie moan,” the creature replied sheepishly. The physician smiled and continued the exam. She took the creature’s temperature, recording it as below room temperature. They discussed diet and activity.

“I am going to prescribe a nightshade extract to raise your temperature. And I need you to take your ectoplasm.”

The zombie hesitated and looked away. “I’m scared.” The doctor put her hand onto the creature’s shoulder. “I know,” she said tenderly. They sat for about an hour and talked.

Last year, global warming reached record high temperatures — and if that news feels like déjà vu, you’re not going crazy.

The planet has now had three consecutive years of record-breaking heat.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has just released its annual State of the Climate report, which says it’s the hottest it has been since scientists started tracking global temperatures in 1880.

A separate analysis, by NASA scientists, came to the same conclusion.

2016 Was The Hottest Year Yet, Scientists Declare

Record-Shattering Global Warm Temperatures in 2015

Earth’s 2015 surface temperatures were the warmest since modern record keeping began in 1880, according to independent analyses by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Globally-averaged temperatures in 2015 shattered the previous mark set in 2014 by 0.23 degrees Fahrenheit (0.13 Celsius). Only once before, in 1998, has the new record been greater than the old record by this much.

The 2015 temperatures continue a long-term warming trend, according to analyses by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York. NOAA scientists concur with the finding that 2015 was the warmest year on record based on separate, independent analyses of the data.

Since the late-19th century, the planet’s average surface temperature has risen about 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit. This change is largely driven by increased carbon dioxide and other human-made emissions into the atmosphere.

An important thing to remember when reading this information is that it reflects global temperature average. That means that specific regions or areas could have experienced colder weather than usual, but overall the global temperature has risen.

How do we know? Our analyses incorporate surface temperature measurements from 6,300 weather stations, ship-and buoy-based observations of sea surface temperatures, and temperature measurements from Antarctic research stations.

What about El Niño? Phenomena such as El Niño or La Niña, which warm or cool the tropical Pacific Ocean, can contribute to short-term variations in global average temperature. Last year’s temperatures had an assist from a warming El Niño, but it is the cumulative effect of the long-term trend that has resulted in the record warming that we’re seeing.

so most of the record high temperatures in Boston are from the 1970s-1990s with occasional forays into the 2000s as one would expect

but then every so often there’s one from the 1870s. never any other decade in the 19th century; just the 1870s

in 1875 it was 72 degrees F on New Year’s Day here, and 94 some day in late April

what the hell was going on that decade

honestly, the worst thing about this fandom is people using it as an excuse to like the actual historical figures. no. if i hear one more person call real-life thomas jefferson, a fucking SLAVEOWNER, a ‘dork’ or a ‘nerd’ for recording the temperature every morning or not liking talking in front of a crowd, i’m gonna fucking rip someone’s head off. like, yeah, he had a weird thing for macaroni and cheese, and maybe that’d be an endearing quality on anyone else, but he also enslaved and raped black people soooo?? liking musical!jefferson is one thing, but dont kid yourself into thinking you’re not racist if you’re sitting there talking endearingly about a slaveowner, the fuck

She's back!!!!

My cycle has returned! Normally I wouldn’t be excited about this but we want to try for a second soon after moving in. Apparently drinking the red raspberry leaf tea twice a day, taking a prenatal and reducing Mya’s nursing during the day has been a success. And according to my temperature recordings on my fertility chart, I did ovulate this month. The only negative is that my luteal phase was only 8 days long. It needs to be 10 days or longer to allow for an egg to implant. I’ve read different ways to length it but I think I’m going to just do one more month of BBT, mucus and cervix tracking to see if regulates itself before taking anything. If it does then we may be able to try in June or July! I already notified our midwife about my cycle and sent her some of my charts. I’m just so excited to start this process again.

We haven’t let anyone know that we are going to start trying soon. They all know we will be eventually but we aren’t going to tell anyone that we are actively TTC. This time we’d like it to just be our process instead of involving everyone.

An Afternoon with Your Boyfriend - Brendan Gallagher

“You know, one of these days you’re going to get us killed,” you say, half a grin on your face as Brendan pulls you out of the way of an oncoming car. “They have pedestrian crossing for a reason.”

Brendan turns back to you, a playful smile on his face. “I know, they’re just not set up where I want to cross. And plus, a little danger is what keeps the spark alive,” he winks and grabs your hand. “Now, let’s get inside, it’s absolutely freezing out here.”

It was true; Montreal was seeing record breaking temperatures and the wind was biting at your skin. Why were you living in a city where the air hurt your face?

Pushing into the building, a gush of cold chased in after you, biting at your heels. “Gosh, I really wish they’d fix that door. It hardly does its job on even the most bearable days,” you say, turning to Brendan. He just glances at you and smirks.

“You always speak so properly – have I ever told you it’s the most adorable thing?” he said as the two of stepped into the large elevator. He bent over and kissed your rosy nose.

“All the time,” you replied with a toothy grin. Nestling your head against his shoulder, you watched as the numbers rose nearing your floor. You always enjoyed the ride up to the apartment after being out in the cold. It allowed you time to warm up and defrost before you got to your door. It was also peacefully quiet.

The doors opened and you and Brendan left the elevator. With his longer strides, Brendan reached the apartment door first and smoothly unlocked it, stepping out of the way to let you in.

“I’m going to put the kettle on and grab some plates for the Chinese food – do you want anything?” You ask, tossing your damp coat into the closet.

“I’ll go find the game and grab some blankets. Just make me whatever you’re having.”

It didn’t take long for the kettle to whistle its completion. You entered the living room with two very full mugs of hot chocolate and placed them on the coffee table where Brendan had “set the table” and divided up the Chinese food the two of you had just purchased while out and about.

Settling back on the sofa, you cuddled up to Brendan and brought the blankets up to your chin. “A little chilly, are we?” Brendan asked. He through his arm around your shoulders and drew you in closer. “Any better?”

You nodded your head and closed your eyes. This was blissful. After two years of dating, this kind of behaviour was second nature to you. Brendan was always doing things like this to show he loved and cared for you.

You open your eyes and glance up at Brendan who is watching you intently. His eyebrows lift as if to question you. Chuckling to yourself, you stretch out your neck and peck him on the lips lightly once and then again with a little more oomph. Moving back you can see him smiling.

“I love you, you know that, right?”

Brendan cups your face with his free hand, leans over and kisses you deeply. You match his intensity and kiss him back. He pulls back from your lips and moves to your ear. “I do now,” he whispers; you can hear the smile in his voice, teasing almost. You shove on his chest playfully but he’s too strong and doesn’t move an inch. That’s okay, you think, you wouldn’t have it any other way.

otayuri get hot

The heat in Almaty is relentless and inescapable. Dry air filters into every building primitive enough not to have central air conditioning and fans only create a hot wind that suffocates rather than cools. Yuri sweats in layers that sit on his skin to dampen the insides of his elbows and the backs of his knees. The sheen glows on his flushed, scowling face.

The record setting temperatures of Almaty’s worse heat wave in years just have to coincide with his trip. In the dark, Otabek can’t see he’s suffering. Sleep is hard to find when he can barely breathe.

“Beka?” He says into the air, voice flat and throat dry. Fingers tap along his bare thigh. He kicked the blankets off days ago and neither of them had used them since. They lay folded over the back of the desk chair due to Otabek’s civilized decision to move them from the floor.

“Yura?” Comes his exhausted reply. Otabek’s hot too. He’s all tanned skin and toned limbs all the time. Perpetually calm. A native, but under moist skin he’s just as worn out. Yuri’s too exhausted to even find pleasure in ogling him in various  states of dress that have yet to cover more than his ass.

Yuri shifts, peeling himself from the naked bed to lounge on his elbows. “I’m buying us plane tickets to fucking Yakutsk.”  Otabek’s laugh is as dry as the air that surrounds them.

When the doctors finally let them see Tsumugu’s grandfather, the room is quiet, save for the intermittent pulse of the monitor. Chisaki breaks from his side, a mess of fear and relief, stumbling into the chair by Isamu’s bed.

She’s a bit more composed than before, but her cheeks still glisten with tears as she reaches for Isamu’s hand, clutching it like an anchor. The pressure of her touch makes Isamu stir; his eyes open and he whispers, weakly, “I’m sorry.”
