The Boston Globe is beating the climate change drum again with new readings saying the Earth has set a new record for warming and this is the third year in a row.

In the past most of the sea water temps were taken by ships using buckets, or water taken through water intakes in a kind of random sampling method. In the last ten years or so, floating, drifting buoys have been used, and now also satellites have been added. There…Continue
