I am doing my part to reduce CO2 by drinking COKE. That is all I intend, too. Put the pop; machines back in the schools. :)
They were predicting a lot more than that
I didn't want to mention it, but I've quit using toilet paper and flushing... truth be told it's a rather old habit.
I'm also going to try organic deoderant.
How does NOAA get their temperature readings?
The animation (link below) of the past two months shows how the current La Nina has stengthened recently. The animation also shows how variable ocean temps are over time.
The current (what was thought of as a mild) La Nina event has varied a lot since it started to appear in mid-January. But it has been very long-lasting now and appears to have stengthened considerably recently so it might eventually go down as one of the more significant La Nina events in history.
I note that the lower atmosphere temperatures from the satellites mirror these cooling ocean temps very closely. The La Nina/El Nino ocean conditions affect global temperatures more than any other weather phenomenon. And the satellite measures are the only real global temperature series we can rely on given the global warmer’s like Hansen’s propensity to just change the data whenever they think it isn’t matching up with their “models” - see ClimateAudit.org for the most recent Hansen escapade (unbelievable actually.)
My uncle worked for the CT DEP in air pollution control about that time period. He put forth that same theory in his internal reports.
