The 262-page report also surveyed storms, ice caps and chemicals in the air. Two of the largest events of the year were Super Typhoon Haiyan and the Australian drought.“You can think of it as an annual checkup on the planet’s health,” said Kathryn Sullivan, administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.The global temperatures were compiled by NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, which found a rise of 0.21 degree Celsius; the Climatic Data Center, also a 0.21; the Hadley Centre of the U.K. Met Office, with 0.20; and the Japan Meteorological Agency, also 0.20. It was based on information from land sensing stations and buoys and ships at sea.“The year 2013 was the warmest since 2010 and among the top 10 warmest years since records began in the mid- to late-1800s,” the researchers wrote in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. “While their methods differ, leading to minor differences in anomalies and ranks, all four analyses are in close agreement.”The temperature on land alone was 0.32 to 0.38 Celsius above the 1981-2010 average, making it the third-warmest at the higher end and sixth-warmest at the lower, the report showed. The 1981-2010 average temperature used by NOAA is 57.8 degrees Fahrenheit. U.S. temperature records date back to 1880.While most of the earth’s land surface was warmer than normal, central Canada and the central and eastern United States were cooler.China reported its hottest August ever, and 44 people died from the heat, the report said. Japan had its warmest summer temperatures since 1946. On Aug. 12, the Ekawasaki station in Shimanto-city Kochi Prefecture recorded a temperature of 41 degrees Celsius (106 Fahrenheit), the highest ever in Japan.“Some regions of the Southern Hemisphere had record or near-record high temperatures for the year,” the researchers said. “Australia observed its hottest year on record, while Argentina and New Zealand reported their second- and third- hottest years, respectively.”In addition, 2013 ranked within the top 10 years for the frequency of warm days, and the bottom 10 for the number of cool days, they said.The lack of either an El Niño or La Niña in the equatorial Pacific Ocean also contributed to the overall temperature of the Earth during the year. Typically, the world is cooler during a La Niña because the ocean’s temperature is below normal, while the opposite is true during an El Niño.As the temperature has risen, so has the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, the report showed. In May, a monitoring station at Mauna Loa, Hawaii, reported the daily average mixing ratio of carbon dioxide exceeded 400 parts per million for the first time since measurements began in 1958.The initial concentration when the readings were first recorded was 315 parts per million. Along with carbon dioxide, the amount of methane and nitrous oxide also rose.The amounts of the compounds in the Arctic region rose at the same rate as elsewhere. This has led researchers to believe that the increase isn’t being caused by the melting of the permafrost, the report showed.“Natural emissions of these gases are of particular interest in the Arctic, where there are large vulnerable reservoirs of carbon in soil and clathrates that may eventually be released to the atmosphere by thawing and decomposition,” the researchers said.Arctic sea ice was the sixth-lowest since satellite observations began in 1979. The seven lowest amounts have all occurred in the past seven years.“In recent decades the Arctic has warmed at least twice the rate of the rest of the Northern Hemisphere,” the researchers said.At the other end of the earth, Antarctica set a high for sea ice extent in October. While ice grew, so did the temperature. The Amundsen-Scott South Pole State reported its highest readings since records were first kept in 1957.The difference in the sea ice extent between the poles is something of a “conundrum” for scientists, said Martin Jefferies, arctic and global prediction program officer for the U.S. Office of Naval Research.“It’s an interesting time to be a polar scientist,” Jefferies said on Thursday’s conference call.© 2014, Bloomberg News Facebook Comments
Statistical tallies for fourth-quarter home sales seem to support the idea that 2012 will represent a period of growth in some regions, and throughout the U.S., the “”National Association of Realtors””:www.realtor.org/ reported a 12.2 percent jump in November sales on a year-over-year basis. Recent data from Florida, Illinois, and Texas illustrates the positive trend, setting the stage for a happy new year in those states.[IMAGE]In Florida, analysis from the state’s “”realtor association””:www.floridarealtors.org/ displayed a year-over-year increase in existing, single-family home sales of 11 percent, as compared with figures from November 2010. The total number of Florida homes sold during the period rang in at 12,993, and while the statistics demonstrate a positive year-over-year picture, they are representative of a month-over-month decline from 13,755 homes sold in October of 2011.Median sales pricing for existing homes in the state fell in November, sinking to $130,100 off of a slightly better $130,600 during October. However, Florida’s median prices in the sector remain well below the national average of $164,200.Year-over-year, condominium sales were also on the uptick in November, with Florida showing a 2 percent increase in condo movement and a 4 percent increase in median sales pricing for the condo market. For Miami-Dade County, the pop in existing, single-family home sales year-over-year was in line with statewide numbers, and the area displayed an 11 percent rise in the sector. Median sales prices were stagnant on a year-over-year basis, with median pricing in the region steady at $171,300.Another large portion of the state, Broward County, bested data recorded around Florida, to enjoy an existing home sales gain of 22 percent year-over-year in November. Condo sales in the region, however, didn’t fare as well, showing a drop of 1 percent year-over-year. John Tuccillo, chief economist for the state’s realtor group, spoke out on the recent findings, stating that “”Florida is already in a mini-recovery.””[COLUMN_BREAK]In the midwest, Loretta Alonzo, president of the “”Illinois Association of Realtors””:www.illinoisrealtor.org/, echoed Tuccillo’s comments, noting of the real estate in her home state, “”As we move through the distressed properties, predominant in the Chicagoland market, and begin to see more positive reports on the jobs front, we will be looking for some stabilization in home prices to coincide with the rising home sales.””During November, Illinois property sales ballooned by 14.2 percent year-over-year to reach 7,954 homes sold in the state. Nevertheless, exceedingly depressed home pricing lingers on in Illinois, with median prices in the state dropping by 11.4 percent on a year-over-year basis; the average median home price in Illinois during November was $128,500.Chicago home sales statistics demonstrated growth of 20.4 percent year-over-year in November, but like the rest of the state, the city’s median pricing decreased, falling by 14.3 percent to land at $150,000. In Chicago’s metropolitan area, which includes nine counties, recorded a rise in home sales of 20.7 percent on a year-over-year basis in November.Of the Illinois counties that released their numbers, 52 percent demonstrated elevated home sales year-over-year for the period, and 41 percent of those areas experienced growth in year-over-year median home pricing, according to IAR.Moving west, Texas also claimed strong numbers in November. the state’s existing, single-family home sales were up by 9 percent year-over-year, based on data revealed by “”Texas A&M University’s Real Estate Center””:recenter.tamu.edu/. The group’s research showed that 15,000 homes sold around the state, and unlike Florida and Illinois, Texas’ median home pricing rose 1 percent for the period to reach $147,600.For Dallas and Houston, year-over-year sales were positive by 16 percent and 11 percent respectively. Additionally, Houston’s median pricing bloomed by 2 percent year-over-year for the period; however, Dallas’ median prices flagged, declining by 2 percent as of November. Pricing jumps weren’t limited to Houston, and statewide, Abilene, Arlington, Austin, Longview-Marshall, Lubbock, and McAllen also displayed improving pricing year-over year. Abilene stands out among the collection of metro areas, with a 47 percent leap in median home prices year-over-year. Multiple mortgage and housing industry sources weighed in with their predictions for 2012 during the recent “”Five Star MPact Conference””:www.thefivestar.com/mpact/about.php, and as is reflected in the data from realtor associations across the U.S., most experts _MReport_ spoke to confirmed the findings, stating that next year’s real estate market looks to be a bounce along the bottom for some regions and a period of slight growth for others.
