Another record warm month globally then. Happens every time. Literally. For the last 37 years or more, every month has been above average regardless of what the whether does in the mid-West or Florida or on the Moon.

Setting or tying monthly global heat records has happened frequently in recent years. The last global monthly cold record was set in December 1916.

Spring, which is March through May, was the second warmest on record globally, behind only 2010

that happens because the temperatures are simply fabricated out of whole cloth.

Hah

It was only 88 today and the average high is 90

Suck it climatulardos.  My three days worth of data points counter your decades of so called "research" and "long term trends" going back centuries and your "ice cores" and "tree rings" going back millenia

Yes, subby, that is evidence for climate change. Extremes in temperature generally result from a change in climate.

Global warming is a lie. But we should still do all the stuff to avert it because it does make Earth a better place to live.

The denier shills must have a script set up to alert them whenever the phrase "warming" shows up in a headline.

YAY, i can turn off my air, and turn on the attic fan, pulling in a sweet mix of cool air, pesticides from the crop dusters, dust, and whatever chemical the city uses to spray for skeeters. ( They pull this sprayer thingy behind a truck, and douse every street with that shiat, comes right in your windows.

Cool, more snow in the Sierras so we're gonna have a whooo-hooo ski season.  Cool.

Malathion fogger. FDA-approved to spray on fruits and veggies. Probably shouldn't drink it straight, though.

I'll paint my roof white and install solar panels, but I draw the line at carbon credits. That's a complete scam designed to create a new market to line the pockets of bankers and I'll never back it.

Upper Midwest getting dealt the chilliest air, hoodies and jeans will be required. Highs in this region could well get stuck in the 50s and 60s

I wear jeans year round anyways, but 50s is not hoodie weather. Maybe a long-sleeve shirt, but no hoodies until we start having too many 40 degree days.
 
2014-07-10 06:23:28 PM
But everyone agrees that the temperature is the same on Mars, and they're not burning coal up there.  Therefore global warming is a hoax designed to make Al Gore rich.

Obviously, you either didn't read it or are just a liar.  A poor liar, at that.  Do you know why NOAA changed which was the higher month?  They didn't fabricate anything out of whole cloth.  Like much of what science does, they got additional information and then added it to their data.  They didn't "change" anything.  It was additional information.  It would be worse for them to either not bother finding additional data or ignore the additional data.  Science doesn't work that way.

But on the other side of the coin, you got deniers who don't do science themselves and deliberately misinterpret actual science done by actual scientists.

The only people who deny climate change is being affected by human activity now are people who are willfully ignorant.

I'm a moron.



So, your argument against all of the evidence for global warming is a possible typo.

Welp, I'm convinced.

Article talks about weather, not climate.

Heard this morning the Pacific typhoon may disrupt the jet stream, causing lower than average temperatures in the NY metro area.

Speaking of record lows, remember being so drunk we made a pass at subby's mom?

And yet alcohol is still legal.

Yeah these past few years have been cold. I should have purchased long sleeve shirts instead of summer shirts and dresses. I haven't even had to put an air conditioner in the window.  At least it's not snowing. But I remember summer being really hot in the past. But these past few years have been like a non colorful autumn on many days. Last year I even used a space heater a few times to keep warm. In the summer.
 
2014-07-10 06:41:26 PM
Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.

Wrong, Mr. Twain!

Speaking of weather, its been really nice here in Seattle. We've been regularly breaking record highs over the past few days and look to continue that over the next week or two.

It's pretty much been global warming since the first paper on it in the 1890's.

Climate change is such a bullshiat term. Nothing on Earth is ever static. May as well blame "Tectonic Shifting" for all our problems. Just sack up and stick with Global Warming

Does Fark pay people to troll here, now?  I remember when they used to warn and then ban people for intentionally trolling.  So why does it look like Fark is troll farming nowadays?  It's a bumper crop year.

Yet they'll chase people who bring valuable stuff to the table off.  Remember how Freep Impact used to save us the trouble of finding out what free republic comments were?  Yet he's gone.

Priorities, Fark.  I question them.

It's a bumper crop because the farm fields are warmer because man has increased CO2.  Climate change, global warming, AGW, global cooling.

If it's based on best-available data, doesn't that make it a "best guess" and not "fact" because, as you say, new data may come along that would change the current guess?
