Skip to comments.How to Tell It's Summer: NOAA Says Earth's Hotter Than Ever

Is it just me, or do they do this every summer?
NOAA: June, April to June, and Year-to-Date Global Temperatures are Warmest on Record July 15, 2010
Last months combined global land and ocean surface temperature made it the warmest June on record and the warmest on record averaged for any April-June and January-June periods, according to NOAA. Worldwide average land surface temperature was the warmest on record for June and the April-June period, and the second warmest on record for the year-to-date (January-June) period, behind 2007.

Who can trust these people again... ever?
“Global average temperatures warmest on record” is the key phrase.
This is an easy stat to manipulate. All that’s necessary is to continuously add additional weather stations. The more stations you have the higher the “warmest average ever recorded” temperature you can claim, because the first year records for the stations are always going to be “the warmest ever recorded.”
They’ll also be the coolest ever recorded, but they won’t mention that.
The penguin agrees...
When we were having record lows this past winter, these clowns were all over the place telling us it is just the season, and not an indication that globalist warming isn’t happening. So what happened to the just the season explanation. If it’s good for winter, it is good for summer. ...We’ve been told for years that globalist warming is melting the icecaps, causing ocean levels to rise, but now we are told El Nino is going away because water levels in the Pacific are low. None of these screwballs know which way Earth’s temperatures are trending, apart from saying we’ve warmed up since the last ice age. None of them know how to analyze the consequences of global warming or the effects of increased CO2 levels. When Greenland was farmland, the ocean levels didn’t wash civilization away.
Nope.. I never trusted them to begin with. Their goals are always the same.
I will say that it's been a little warmer here in the SE than usual (low 90s instead of hi 80s), but, this was also a cooler than normal winter. And, the past few summers have been cooler than normal, too.
However, temps a little higher than normal, are obviously due to GW, while temps a little lower than normal get ignored.
In defense of NOAAs credibility, here’s an updated and more accurate forecast:
How disappointing. NOAA goes from a respected uniformed service of the U.S. to a brain-dead puppet of Obama.
That's a good one, but the method they're using is simpler: they DELETE stations from consideration (more than half), picking only those that'll show the numbers thay want.
I used to trust NOAA, NASA, etc. Not any more.
Sorry, there's no credibility to defend until these agencies are purged of political science majors and science majors replace them.
They also tend to place their weather stations in the middle of urban heat islands, as noted by more than a few professional meteorologists. NOAA has been in the bag for AGW for some time. Go back and look at their climate forecasts for the past two years (all wrong). Where they predicted large areas of above-normal temps for the US; the opposite happened. Gotta have that Federal honey to keep the machines humming you know...
The US ain’t!
Just to be clear, that wasn’t my bet.
Sure has been hot, though.
On the upside, I don’t have to mow my lawn anymore. :-)
What WAS the bet, precisely. I thought that if you won, one of us “deniers” would be treating you to dinner or some such?
