    More than 90 record-high temperatures were recorded in the Midwest and Great Lakes yesterday.

    And perhaps an even better record came for the residents of Minneapolis-St. Paul in Minnesota - for only the third time in recorded history there was no snow measured during the month of March. (Records date back to 1859).

    Rochester, Minnesota, shattered its old record high of 71 degrees when the temperature soared to 83 degrees yesterday. Chicago also recorded a record high temperature for April 1 of 83.

    Hey Global Warming is back. Ya know maybe he was just on vacation, the libs have been riding him pretty hard for a long time.

    Probably down in Rio where he would fit in without being noticed.

    Actually I'm relieved because it sort of cancels out all the record cold reported in Europe, Cuba, Alaska, Belize, the U.S. midwest and Gulf coast, New Mexico, Cuba, and other points in the Carribbean over the last few months.

    It is good to be reassured that we probably aren't about to be overwhelmed by another ice age quite yet.

    If the record cold and snow doesn't mean global cooling then one day of heat does not equal global warming.

    And further the free world has been monitoring weather for a very VERY short time in the history of civilization, and the ability to accurately read the ancient records are tentative at best and of late been more like trying to follow a moving crap game.

    It is a given that on any given day there will be record heat AND record cold reported somewhere on the planet and we can expect that trend to continue for some time into the future until we have a lot more history of accurately reporting temperatures.

    The Sun is at its lowest level of activity in 80 years, and yet we have record high temperatures.

    Why?

    Record high temperatures in some place. Record cold temperatures in others. The climate is and has never been static. The Earth will be warming or cooling on any given day. The CO2 levels have continued to rise unabated for the last several years while median Earth temperatures have leveled off or even cooled at bit.

    Why?
