    Wow, would you look at that. It's hot in the NE (like usual for the summer season) and yet in Santa Barbara and the rest of the central coast from Ventura up to San Luis Obispo it has been unseasonably cold. My local news says that it was record low high temps for the region but I havn't been able to confirm that yet. As you can see it is 61 in SF and 67 in San Jose

    Seems to me that I remember that Mark Twain once wrote that the worst winter he was ever in was a summer in San Francisco.

    San Jose is hardly San Francisco. The micro-climates in the Bay Area vary quite a bit. It's been chilly all over, not just in SF.

    Quite simple old fraud, you point to hot summer weather as evidence for GW and I point to cold weather at the exact same time and you try to pass it off as meaningless, which in fact it is, but then so is your point about the hot weather in the NE.


    Can't have one without the other old fraud, no matter how hard you try!

    The temperatures that I have pointed to, have been those from all over the world, not just in a few places that were warmer or colder than normal. The satellite data from Dr. Spencer backs up the fact that it is getting warmer. Just look at the 13 month running mean.

    June 2010 UAH Global Temperature Update: +0.44 deg. C Roy Spencer, Ph. D.

    Note that the mean is approaching the high of 1998. And that the mean has never gone done to the 0 line since 2000.

    Yes and you fail to note that he attributes it to the current El Nino, and then also says that the temp appears to be waning as the La Nina approaches. Also these are lower atmosphere temperatures not ground temperatures. And so far there is little evidence that atmospheric temps transfer to the ground.
