This is a list of news bulletins released by the Goddard Institute for Space Studies at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration about their global temperature series since 2016. What happened to the continuous stream of headline stories about a seemingly endless list of records being broken on a monthly basis that suddenly dried up at the beginning of 2019? Perhaps they changed their policy about how they reported them, or maybe that they person than did them retired and was replaced? Or it’s maybe because this happened.
So why have GISS, and everyone else for that matter, stayed shtum and not published any stories about the fall back in global temperatures from the twin peaks which occurred in early 2016 and late 2019? If they had, no doubt they would have probably put it down to the various ENSO events in the Pacific in recent years, but you would have thought global temperatures are driven globally and not just by SST in the central Pacific. COP26 is certainly going to be interesting when it starts in Glasgow in November.
