    And the heat goes on: warmest March on record
    By RANDOLPH E. SCHMID (AP) – 2 days ago

    WASHINGTON — And the heat goes on.

    Last month was the warmest March on record worldwide, based on records back to 1880, scientists reported Thursday.

    The average temperature for the month was 56.3 degrees Fahrenheit (13.5 degrees Celsius), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported.

    That was 1.39 degrees F (0.77 C) above the average for the month over the 20th century.

    NOAA researchers said the warmer-than-normal conditions were especially notable in northern Africa, South Asia, Tibet, Delhi, India and Canada.

    Cooler-than-normal regions included Mongolia and eastern Russia, northern and western Europe, Mexico, northern Australia, western Alaska and the southeastern United States.

    Contributing to the record month was El Nino, a periodic warming of the tropical Pacific Ocean that, combined with changes in winds and air pressure, can affect weather worldwide.

    And the Warmers still can't come up with a single repeatable laboratory experiment to justify their hypothesis.

    That's the dumbest post ever.

    CO2's greenhouse effect was proven experimentally in 1859.

    March was the warmest March ever recorded worldwide, the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) reported Thursday. NCDC records go back to 1880.

    Another source, the University of Alabama-Huntsville, also reported that March 2010 was the warmest March since their climate records began in 1979.

    According to the climate center, the combined global land and ocean average surface temperature in March was 56.3 degrees, which is 1.39 degrees above the 20th-century average of 54.9 degrees. Additionally, the worldwide ocean surface temperature was the highest for any March on record -- 1.01 degree above the 20th century average of 60.7 degrees.

    This was the 34th consecutive March with global land and ocean temperatures above the 20th century average.

    The warmth in northern Canada and the Arctic was also noteworthy. Temperatures there soared to as much as 15 degrees above average for the month, the University of Alabama-Huntsville noted. The UAH dataset uses satellite measurements of temperatures from the surface up to about five miles in altitude.

    It should be a slam dunk.

    Take 2 tanks side by side: one Earth atmosphere, the second Earth's atmosphere plus 300PPM additional CO2.

    What you linked to has nothing Nothing NOTHING to do with your hypothesis.

    LOL, first the OP is just an example of one area getting warmer and another getting colder more or less. Seriously it states as much. As far as overall warming 1.39 degrees above the month average for the 20th century.. WOW! OMG! we are all dead now!

    Dude seriously... 1.39 degrees? How many glaciers you think melted due to that 1.39 degrees for one month? Do you really think that a place where temperatures routinely double digits below zero can melt uncontrollably over a 1.39 temp rise over a month? or even worse over a total 1.4 degrees temp rise the last 150 years? Give me a break this whole premise is just reatrded to the point of lunacy now...

    And that post I quoted... Did you actually read the findings of Tyndall there in that article, or did you just take headline and run with it? Or more importantly did you just take their explanation at face value? Well from now on eat supper before you grab the desert, its healthier for you...

    The findings:

    Okay first, water was the biggest one not CO2.. yeah water vapor just like we say all the time on this, clouds contribute more to warming than CO2 and whenever we do your side tries to shout it down and post more crap about CO2.

    Second the math is just plain wrong in regards to volume of CO2 in the atmosphere. Its part per million or PPM not parts per then-thousand. And that alone shows the fact this article is fudged.

    Third, this little batch of unmitigated horse shit sentence..

    "Just as a sheet of paper will block more light than an entire pool of clear water, so the trace of CO2 altered the balance of heat radiation through the entire atmosphere."

    WTF? what in the hell kind of pseudo-science crap is that? Dude thats like saying concrete is hard so all hard things are concrete... its just retarded..

    Enough of this crap already! its nonsense and its just ignorant to try and spread it.

    Every month is a 'record month' to someone it seems. And all of them prove Global warming.

    It's too hot
    it's too cold
    it's too wet
    it's too dry
    it's too stinky
    it's too bright
    it's too dark
    it doesn't fit right
    it's not the right color
    do you have this in argyle?
    It's too fat
    It has too many calories
    it corners horribly
    it's likely to explode from a rear impact
    it talks to much
    it's after it's expiration date
    it watches Letterman
    it's too loud
    it's too stupid...

    but lastly... and most accurately...

    It's proof global warming's bullshit.

    And yet no increase in world wide temperatures since 1998. Go figure.
