GoreBull Warming Update

According to the Arizona Republic, this is the "nicest" June in Phoenix since 1913:

"It's probably the best June since I've been here, and I've been here most of my life," said the National Weather Service's Valerie Meyers, who is in her late 40s. "It's been really nice."

Possibly the nicest June ever.

It's that type of thing that is fun to say but hard to quantify.

Thursday, however, was the 14th consecutive day to stay below 100 degrees. That's the longest stretch of its kind in any June since 1913.
I know, I know, "the plural of 'anecdote' is not 'data'". But I've seen similar reports from Spokane, Chicago, Minneapolis/St.Paul, and ...all around the world. The 50-year-low sunspot numbers from last year may well be matched or even beaten this year, suggesting that the trend will continue.

But none of that mattered when it came time for the House of Representatives to vote on a draconian measure to restrict carbon dioxide emissions. And with the celebrity-obsessed media relenting from its coverage of the death of Farrah Fawcett only because of Michael Jackson's sudden demise, the average voter won't hear a word about it. Call your US Senators' offices and convey your opposition to Cap and Tax, before it's too late.


  1. Based on a discussion with a Liberal friend of mine on Facebook, I can see why. The Global Warmists have a two-pronged attack which is self-reinforcing. They deny skeptics any chance to present evidence (in the relevant scientific publications on Climate) that there is any question to the validity of AGW, then mock the evidence which is presented independently as being invalid because there is none presented in Climate-related publications which are supposed to be authoritative on the matter.

  2. All that does in the long run Wayne is to discredit the journals that valued political correctness over actual science. More and more people are realizing that the whole AGW thing is a scam. Unfortunately, the left at this point can (and do) say, "Oh yeah? We won and we're in power, so it doesn't matter if it's a lie or not, we're going to do it."


We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
