According to the fake news BBC, large parts of the world had record warmth last year.
(Note, although the BBC caption reads “in January this year“, fake news correspondent Matt McGrath has not realised that this is NOAA’s map for the whole of 2016 ‚Äì the clue is the date, Wednesday Jan 11, and the actual NOAA map can be crosschecked here)
However, as NOAA themselves admit they have no data at all across many of these “record warmest” areas:Note the big red splodges on the BBC map across S America, Africa and the Pacific, where there is virtually no data at all.
This is why it is called man-made global warming!
It is certainly “extreme and unusual”, because it actually has not happened.
