    Yesterday I picked up a copy of The Economist. Much to my surprise, the conservative magazine had put Global Warming on their cover. Yes, this is the same magazine that has denied Global Warming's existence.

    The Drudge Report still linked the new NOAA report under the misleading title: "2006 temps fail to break records".

    The headline did not say what the report revealed: 47 states had 'higher than normal' summer temps and 20 states were 'much higher than normal'. Those are just summer temps. The January to August averages reveal a worse picture: 5 states set records, all were at least 'higher than normal' and 34 were 'much higher than normal'.

    The drilling in Greenland has revealed that in 120,000 years the Earth has never warmed so quickly.

    The Economist article emphasized that the problem will get solved. I think it is time for the Republicans to dump there 901st rule science so we can solve this before it has any kind of major impact on our lives.

    As cute as your response was, it probably has to do with geological patterns and all that.

    Perhaps based on theory?

    Ice measures heat and precipitation the same way as tree rings. Years are represented by ice layers, and ice layers vary based on climate.

    Global warming is not based on a single day, week, month of the year--it is based on an overall trend. In fact, your state just had its hottest summer in its recorded history.

    A link I picked up on the Drudge Report:

    http://www.noaanews.noaa.gov/stories2006/s2700.htm

    As you can see, Nevada experienced the warmest June-August period in the state's recorded history. Your subjective experience is great, but I am going to trust NOAA.
