    'Sup, dawgs! Hope your long underwear isn't getting too worn out, what with little relief since last summer. Everywhere you turn we read about record LOW temperatures all over the world. 'Sup wit dat!!! The environmentally "sensitive" have been telling us the world is coming to an end because of "global warming", the ice is disappearing from the poles, etc, etc, ad nauseum.

    Well, boys and girls, here's the latest in the Book of Truth: it's damn COLD out!! And looking to stay that way for the foreseeable future.


    [size=+4]June hasn't been this nice since ... 1913[/size]

    Meteorologists are reluctant to call a month "nice." They have their data and their science and typically do not describe the weather in such subjective terms.

    Except now, because the data prove it.

    "It's probably the best June since I've been here, and I've been here most of my life," said the National Weather Service's Valerie Meyers, who is in her late 40s. "It's been really nice."

    June hasn't been this nice since ... 1913

    Here in Jax, we've had a heat index in the 110 range... which is insanely hot for this time of year...

    The Nobel Prize should be taken away from Al Boob Gore and his face should be slapped, several times.

    Gore still makes his family call him "Mr President"

    My furnace has been going on every morning since last Labor Day (2008) it looks like Snow today.

    Damn, I lived in Daytona for a few years and never remember it getting that hot.

    But then again that's how weather and climate differ.

    It's been multiple years now with this being the coldest. It's becoming a trend now.

    :confused:

    What argument ? You're right that a day of cold means nothing but it's been a cooling trend for close to a decade now. It's hardly "seasonal".

    So this seasonal weather is "climate change"??

    Have noticed that the south seems unseasonably warm for this time of year.. all the weather that I have watched has had to do with a freaky jet stream.. not sure that can buy into it getting colder, what is obvious is that the weather patterns have gotten different and there are more intense periods.

    Ha ha, Global Warming is gone now. Climate Change is PERFECT. The climate always changes and the freaks can blame it on cars and cow farts.

    Once again, we need to be reminded:

    The climate may or may not be changing. Who cares? We'll adapt to that somehow.
    The problem with pollution is the toxins that we can't adapt to and will kill us and make our kids sick and damaged.

    The climate change/ global warming "debate" means nothing compared to toxins being pumped into our food, water, and air. The corporations are very pleased that we're locked in this diversion. Gives them more time to keep trashing the planet and killing us.

    Carry on.

    There is no trend of global cooling. Recent years are all among the warmest on record.

    Yes there is a trend down :

    And although the trend overall is up :

    http://www.geocraft.com/WVFossils/PageMill_Images/image318.gif

    You will see that :

    - The recent spike years aren't abnormal, there were similar spike years in the '30 and '40s.

    - The warming trend line is the same for this whole period starting in 1880.

    And if you look LONG term :

    You'll see nothing unusual right now.

    Look, I don't believe in MMGW. Why should I have to live with higher gas prices, smaller cars, etc, for your religion ? If everyone who CLAIMED to believe it's a problem did their own little bit then we would reduce carbon emissions by more than the goal.

    One more time - IF YOU BELIEVE IN MMGW, take one less long car trip each year and buy a Hybrid. And leave the rest of us alone.
