    The summer of 2010 was bound to be remembered for cool temperatures across Los Angeles and a stubborn El Niño-enhanced marine layer blanketing the west side.

    And then it became Fall.

    The mercury hit an unprecedented 113 degrees shortly after noon and we may see hotter temps yet as the September sun bakes the downtown streets into the afternoon.

    Today is not only the hottest September 27th since 1877 when meteorological record-keeping began -- it's downtown LA's highest temperature reading ever.

    Maybe. In the 1870's there was a hot spell that hit Santa Barbara most prominently that killed birds sitting in the trees. The temps were also felt in LA but no one knows how hot it was because there were no thermometers. Hyperbole isn't science and never will be.
    LA has had a few days of record heat but it had several months of record cold...how does that figure into your little fact tree?

    Hottest of 130 years on a 4.5 Billion year old planet. What's the significance? Has this data point been peer-reviewed? Has the peer-review process been properly vetted?

    Tough being on the wrong side of history, isn't it?

    Which oil company do you work for again?

    How do you figure? I at least know history unlike yourself.
    How long have you worked for Goldman Sachs and CCX?
