While we froze, Earth sets another record for winter warmth:

Not only did we freeze this winter but last year on Long Island was the coldest in 18 years. Unless this pattern changes, we are well on our way to outdoing last year.

Here's one for you Mike - It may have been the warmest two consecutive days in Antartica ever. They were warmer yesterday than most of our area. Granted it's equivalent to September for us down there but September is more like the start of a brutal winter for them and summers are not much above freezing, if that, to begin with.

Ha! 60's there before here this year. That's probably a great question to ask someone, who reached 60 degrees first? Doubt anyone picks Antarctica.

Here's some details on the actual weather hour by hour for the two days.

I'd say looking at the map, 90%+ of Earth was above or well above average.
As far as Antarctica goes, it's even more impressive that they break heat records in what is equivalent to the early fall there. It would be like breaking all sorts of heat records here, in late September.

I will take some global warming at this point, having yet to reach 60 degrees since December. :( I hope we make it at least to normal and stay there. Of course I'll be careful what I wish for as I would hate to live through a summer that sees temps 10-12 degrees above normal, which would be the direct inverse of our recent February.

Mike, I'm assuming that much warmer than normal ocean water on both our coasts would have been a pretty influential driving force behind our nasty cold and Boston's record winter.

Yeah you can make out the massive ridge out west and the massive trough in the east. Also that tight gradient between the warmer ocean and colder US trough certainly played a role in Boston's epic winter.

He's a noted skeptic of a lot of things... global warming, the link between asbestos and cancer, the link between smoking and cancer, and evolution to name a few and has many books/articles on them.

So I'd be hesitant to believe a word of that article. Of course never hurts for data to be re-examined.

They discredit themselves when they start applying terms like "scandal" and "climategate". He also makes claims of data manipulation but offers no proof.

To me, the science behind global warming is pretty straight forward. CO2 traps heat, and human activity has nearly doubled its concentrations in the atmosphere over the last two centuries. Therefore it stands to reason the planet can be expected to realize some degree of warming and climate pattern shift as a direct result of human activity. Seems pretty simple. I think the real debate is how much of a change we will see.

I personally don't buy into the most dire predictions of warming and climate shifts for the 21st century. Still, I'm very concerned about droughts, heat-waves and blizzards, deforestation, as well as wildlife extinctions, disruptions in the food chain, and habitat loss. Not to mention a growing human population, dwindling resources, and pollution. Anthropogenic global warming is sort of the dark horse in all of this and even without it, I think we still have many environmental concerns to address.

Yea I wasn't sure how credible the article was, just thought I would throw it out there to see what comments would result.

Interesting article on climate change.

http://www.climatede...al-based-on-non

What I like about this article is they actually mention that global warming can do some good. When you hear the global warming activists, it is always gloom and doom. No way, there has to be a lot of good that comes from warming, to me it only makes sense. The fact that you never hear anything about the good, shows how political the issue really is.

I see the world leaders are meeting this week to ram a treaty down the world's throats. What a joke.

While I don't agree with you on this issue Wishcast, I applaud you for the ironic timing of that post (whether intentional or not):

Been thinking of this for some time, but if climate change is so prevalent and expanding, why is it that for the past 35 years, I have begun cutting my lawn in late March/early April and cut it for the last time in mid to late October. It would stand to reason that if the climate was warming at such an accelerated rate, my lawn would grow for a longer period of time. Just a thought...

Another article where a UN official describes the real reason behind "global warming scare". If you dont care to read the article, here is the key point.

Have doubts? Then listen to the words of former United Nations climate official Ottmar Edenhofer:

“One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole,” said Edenhofer, who co-chaired the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008 to 2015.

So what is the goal of environmental policy?

“We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy,” said Edenhofer.
