The data is in and the records keep coming. That’s not good. January’s record temperature was 1.13 C degrees about the average from 1950-1980. We’re now only 1 C degree away from the estimated 2 C degree point of no return. Considering the noise induced by the chaotic nature of Nature, we may see a period when the months aren’t setting records (which would be called normal); but at this rate we may enter a new era that redefines normal.
