    I don't know the answer, but this should be of concern to all of us.

    And last year the Missouri and Mississippi were at flood stage March through September.

    Wider and wilder swings with an overall warming,

    Increasing the temperature increases the likely hood for a "hotter" or abnormally summer. Increases the odds of such events...

    Of course this would be more likely in the mid evil warm period(1100 ad) then the little ice age(1700). So you get the idea.

    True.

    Hey, England is having the coolest summer in more than a decade. Time to panic?

    Just what makes you think that the warming trend driving the present climate change should create warming everywhere at the same time?

    The prediction is for wider and wilder weather swings, with an overall warming trend. and that is exactly what we have been seeing.

    Ouch! July in US was hottest ever in history books
    8 Aug.`12 WASHINGTON (AP) — This probably comes as no surprise: Federal scientists say July was the hottest month ever recorded in the Lower 48 states, breaking a record set during the Dust Bowl of the 1930s.
