March 4, 2016 (San Diego’s East County) -- The sum of a strong El Nino and the effect of man's greenhouse gas emissions drove February 2016 global land and sea Troposphere temperatures to a 37-year record.
Remote Sensing Systems reports a February land and sea monthly reading from the lower troposphere of 0.974K, significantly higher than any other reading on the 37-year and 2-month long data set. The extreme upper right of the graph below represents the February record.
