For the ocean, the August global sea surface temperature was 0.65°C (1.17°F) above the 20th century average of 16.4°C (61.4°F). This record high departure from average not only beats the previous August record set in 2005 by 0.08°C (0.14°F), but also beats the previous all-time record set just two months ago in June 2014 by 0.03°C (0.05°F).

Complete bullshit. The oceans were much warmer in August 1998.
More of the southern oceans were below normal than were above normal in August, 2014.
Gavin says we are experiencing record heat due to very warm polar temperatures, which explains why global sea ice area is the highest since 1997, above normal and higher than 30 years ago.
When Hansen predicted 5 degrees warming in the US by 2020, what he meant was that 75% of the US would be below normal temperature by 2014.
Prior to 1950, freezing temperatures in Michigan during the first half of September were rare. Now they happen all the time.
RSS uses a 1979-1998 baseline, and shows most of Africa below normal temperature in August.
Gavin has no data for most of Africa
So he simply makes up data, and shows almost all of Africa above the 1979-1998 average
Gavin is telling people that August was the hottest ever even though his own data says it isn’t – and he is basing his claim on bogus warm temperatures which were fabricated from no data.
Arctic sea ice area has increased by 2,000 Manhattans over the past five days, and is up 58% over two years ago.
Global sea ice area is averaging 3,000 Manhattans above normal since the start of 2013, and has been above normal 62% of the time.
Climate experts say the poles are melting down, because their funding depends on spreading propaganda which supports Al Gore’s global warming scam.
