NASA: The Earth Cooled by Half a Degree Celsius From 2016-2018
The average global temperature dropped by more than half a degree Celsius from February 2016 to February 2018, according to just published NASA data.
According to the average temperature around the world fell 0.56 degrees Celsius during that time period, the biggest dip in temperatures since a decrease of 0.47 degrees Celsius from Ys 1982-1984.
The overall temperature change during the recent 2-year period was the result of 2 shorter changes, from February to June 2016, which turned in the largest 5 month drop in history, and February to June 2017.
There were several claims in Ys 2013 and 2014 the Earth was entering a global cooling period, which was predicted to last until the middle of the this century.
A former space shuttle engineer and NASA consultant even released a book in Y 2014 that predicted the world was being struck by a 30-year cold spell.
