    According to temp data from Weather Underground, the average yearly temperature for Miami Florida from July 8 2008 - July 8 2009 was 77 Degrees. Sixty years ago, the average temperature for Miami Florida from July 8 1948 - July 8 1949 was 77 Degrees.

    WHERE IS THE GLOBAL WARMING FOLKS?

    Miami's annual temperature averages have fluctuated roughly from 75 degrees to 78 degrees. The 77 degree average of the most recent year is also the same as
    1960 - 1961, and 1994 - 1995.

    This also represents being one degree cooler than the Miami average of 78 Degrees in 1990 - 1991.


    Just some food for thought as we watch this Democrat Congress and White House attempt passage of a Cap and Tax program that will inflict great harm to every American in the name of climate disaster that does not exist.

    Local Climate Changes
    Over the last century, average temperatures have increased in
    Florida. At Ocala, the 1892-1921 average temperature was
    almost 67°F; the 1966-1995 average temperature was over 69°F.
    Precipitation over the last hundred years has decreased in the
    Keys and parts of south Florida, and increased in central Florida
    and the panhandle.

    Many of the regional climate change findings
    over the past five to ten years can be summarized as
    followings (Crowe and Quayle, in Ning et al. 2000):
    8 Temperatures are increasing.
    8 Regional temperature changes are several times
    larger than the global average:
    Daily minimum temperatures are increasing at
    twice the rate of maximum temperatures and
    several times the rate of global temperature
    increase.
    Increase for minimum is 1.5o F since 1950 (0.7o
    F for maximum).
    8 There is evidence for an enhanced hydrologic
    cycle:
    Decrease in daily temperature range
    More atmospheric water vapor
    More precipitation
    More intense precipitation events
    Stronger extratropical storms
    8 There is no evidence for changes in hurricane
    frequency or intensity.
    A most serious consequence of climate change
    during the past Century to the Gulf Coast environments
    is sea-level rise in response to melting of
    some polar ice and thermal expansion of warmer
    oceans (Muller and Grymes in Ning et al. 2000). The
    historical data suggested sea-level rise of about 12
    cm (5 inches) over the last 100 years, and a much
    greater rise during the next 100 years. It must be
    stressed that for the Gulf Coast region these are very
    conservative estimates of local sea level rise, as continued
    deltaic and coastal subsidence is likely to significantly
    enhance the apperant sea level rise above global
    projections.

    Yet, Tampa and Miami are still on dry land.

    Weather Underground - has temperature data on a number of urban locations dating back 70 years.

    Simply do a bit of actual effort and see for yourself.

    Miami's temps are no warmer now than they were 60 years ago. Moderate fluctuations over the last 60 years.

    Global Warming - NOT.

    Stop being spoon fed pre-determined data - find out for yourself what is actually going on. The earth continues to cool and warm in moderate variations - a crisis of global warming is NOT taking place.

    Cap and Tax is a sham and simple governmental power grab aided by those comfortable with a political agenda over actual data...

    The really sad thing is that the global warming hoax would be easier to believe ...

    ... if only the peer pressured scientists actually showed their work and stopped changing their own data every year.

    Do you really not understand the difference between global climate and local weather, Sinatra?

    I mean seriously do you think this proves anything?

    Here's a clue...it doesn't.

    A hot year in some locale doesn't indicate global warming and a cold year in some locale doesn't prove global cooling either,

    Make a note of it, would you?

    That every temperature is not warmer than every temperature 60 years ago does not mean the average temperature has not gone up.

    Surely you can understand the difference, yes?

    It might be easier to believe if you stopped believing obviously flawed arguments as well. But theres no indication that you ever will.
