Earth Has Its 4th Warmest March on Record; Weekend Severe Weather Outbreak Coming

Dr. Jeff Masters, April 23, 2014

Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

March 2014 was the globe's 4th warmest March since records began in 1880. March 2014 global land temperatures were the 5th warmest on record, and global ocean temperatures were also the 5th warmest. The year-to-date January - March period has been the 7th warmest on record for the globe. One billion-dollar weather-related disaster hit the Earth during March 2014: Southeastern Brazil's worst drought in 50 years, which has cost at least $4.3 billion so far this year.

What is the right diagnosis?

Dr. Ricky Rood, April 21, 2014

Professor, University of Michigan

There is no world in which we live that is uninfluenced by our emissions of many pollutants, including carbon dioxide, and our changes to the land and oceans. We make a mistake if we dismiss human-induced climate change as not influencing the weather each and every day.

Throwing a jerkbait can lead to huge fish the ones you'll see here! When the ice leaves, and water temps are in the 40s, a jerk should be your best friend!
