    Warmest June on record, climate scientists say
    By NATASHA T. METZLER (AP) – 7 hours ago

    WASHINGTON — Last month was the warmest June on record, extending months of record-setting heat.

    Worldwide, the average temperature in June was 61.1 degrees Fahrenheit (16.2 Celsius), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Thursday. That was 1.22 degrees F (0.68 C) warmer than average for June.

    This year has had the warmest average temperature for January-June on record — 57.5 F (12.2 C).

    Yep the arctic is a little on the low side but the antarctic is plus a whole bunch. So the net ice anomoly is positive, go figure. We are just about where we were in 1980. Lots of ice melting there, Cox old boy!

    Good God, Walleyes. A faux geologist that cannot even read a graph. Look at the right hand side of the graph. See the time that the red line is below the zero line? Note the much wider swings than in the previous years? Lordy, lordy, Walleyes, get a brain!

    Some say the world will end in fire,
    Some say in ice.
    From what I've tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice,
    I think I know enough of hate
    To say that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

    What temperature was it at this time yesterday? Have you checked the tree rings in the neighborhood?

    Yep and it was 93 at midnight out here, of course we don't have the humidity. I believe it's called summer. Of course I could be mistaken. It might be called a different season where you are.
