    The Global Warming Lie

    Notice the diminished stories about global warming of late? Unfortunately for global warming proponents, Mother Nature has simply refused to comply with what Al Gore and his countless ilk described as fact. Ah, but facts are funny things…

    Summer 2009 has been for the most part, rather cool in many parts of the United States – the East Coast in particular. And while some cities such as Seattle experienced a week or so of abnormally hot weather, this rather mild summer was the rule rather than the exception. What then, happened to those dire projections of global doom n gloom that were being made ten years ago?

    Let’s review a bit of temperature data taken from weatherunderground for some cities across America and see how temperatures from this past year stack up shall we?

    New York: 2008-2009 mean temperature of 55 degrees. This is a full two degrees cooler than the mean temperature for New York ten years ago. And guess what…it’s a full three degrees cooler than the mean temperature of sixty years ago. Global warming in New York? Nope – not even close. It’s actually getting downright chilly.

    St. Louis: 2008-2009 mean temperature of 57 degrees. This is a full one degree cooler than the mean temperature of ten years ago. And similar to New York, St. Louis temperatures for this past year have been a full two degrees cooler than those sixty years ago. Again, no global warming in yet another American city.

    Seattle: 2008-2009 mean temperature of 53 degrees. Now Seattle had some record breaking warm temperatures this summer, so one would think perhaps this year would prove warmer on average than previous years. Well, that most recent median temperature of 53 degrees for Seattle is the same as ten years ago, and in fact, one degree cooler than fifty years ago. It would appear Seattle has no time for global warming either.

    Miami: 2008-2009 mean temperature of 77 degrees. Now global warmers have long warned that places like sun-friendly Miami will suffer the worst from global warming – that old retired folks may very well burst into flames from the heat. Thankfully, like the previous cities cited, Miami too is making fools of the wacko warmers. The average temperature of 77 degrees this past year is the same as ten years ago and is in fact a degree cooler than twenty years ago, and the same as sixty years ago.

    From coast to coast, the story is the same – global warming is a hoax.

    Why then are Democrat leaders in Congress, along with the Obama administration, attempting to move forward with ridiculous Cap n Trade legislation? Why decimate the American economy at the cost of thousands per year for American families, in the name of highly unproven and unlikely junk science?

    Why indeed…

    Your article is aply named, for, indeed, it is 'Global Warming Lies'. Thus far, 2009 has tied 2003 for the fifth warmest on record. And, given the strengthing El Nino, may well end up as the third or fourth warmest year on record. Then watch what 2010 does. By the way, remember when I stated that this would be the case much earlier this year?


    NOAA: Warmest Global Sea-Surface Temperatures for August and Summer
    September 16, 2009


    Global surface temperature anomalies for the month of August 2009. Temperature is compared to the average global temperature from 1961-1990.

    The world’s ocean surface temperature was the warmest for any August on record, and the warmest on record averaged for any June-August (Northern Hemisphere summer/Southern Hemisphere winter) season according to NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C. The preliminary analysis is based on records dating back to 1880.

    NCDC scientists also reported that the combined average global land and ocean surface temperature for August was second warmest on record, behind 1998. For the June-August 2009 season, the combined global land and ocean surface temperature was third warmest on record.

    Global Highlights – Summer

    The June-August worldwide ocean surface temperature was also the warmest on record at 62.5 degrees F, 1.04 degrees F above the 20th century average of 61.5 degrees F.
    The combined global land and ocean average surface temperature for the June-August season was 61.2 degrees F, which is the third warmest on record and 1.06 degrees F above the 20th century average of 60.1 degrees F.
    Global Highlights – August
    The worldwide ocean surface temperature of 62.4 degrees F was the warmest on record for any August, and 1.03 degrees F above the 20th century average of 61.4 degrees F.
    Separately, the global land surface temperature of 58.2 degrees F was 1.33 degrees F above the 20th century average of 56.9 degrees F, and ranked as the fourth warmest August on record.
    Large portions of the world’s land mass observed warmer-than-average temperatures in August. The warmest departures occurred across Australia, Europe, parts of the Middle East, northwestern Africa, and southern South America. Both Australia and New Zealand had their warmest August since their records began.
    The Southern Hemisphere average temperatures for land and ocean surface combined were the warmest on record for August.
    Other Notable Developments

    For the year to date, the combined global land and ocean surface temperature of 58.3 degrees F tied with 2003 for the fifth-warmest January-August period on record. This value is 0.99 degree F above the 20th century average.
    According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), Arctic sea ice covered an average of 2.42 million square miles during August. This is 18.4 percent below the 1979-2000 average extent, and is generally consistent with a decline of August sea ice extent since 1979.
    NSIDC data indicated Antarctic sea ice extent in August was 2.7 percent above the 1979-2000 average. This is consistent with the trend during recent decades of modest increases in August Antarctic sea ice extent.

    this happens when the closed minded focus their data search too narrow...
