    In Indy, we are having an on again, off again summer. One week we have the 85 and 90 degree days common for July and the next we have 65 and 70 degree days.

    I don't know what the local annual average is for the year here, but it "feels" cooler than years of the recent past. I've only lived here since '92.

    The Global Warmers are working overtime trying to deconstruct this data - but more and more people are finally questioning the legitimacy of such groups as the IPCC.

    The only one who is working overtime to deconstruct data is you.

    The sun is at its lowest level of activity in 80 years and we are still seeing record heat in the South.

    Why?

    Why? Because of Algore's personal jet?

    It's been raining here in Rhode Island basically every day with a sunny day once a week since mid June.

    It sucks. :eusa_eh:

    Who cares about Al Gore?

    Why is the ice melting if the sun is at its lowest level of activity in 80 years?

    Conditions in context

    Through most of June, ice extent tracked close to two standard deviations below the long-term mean and just above the levels observed in 2007. By the end of June 2009, ice extent was 337,000 square kilometers (130,000 square miles) higher than extent at the end of June 2007.

    During June, the Arctic Ocean lost a total of 2.05 million square kilometers (792,000 square miles) of ice, an average decline of 68,300 square kilometers (26,400 square miles) per day.
