Skip to comments.May 2010 was warmest on record: U.S. government data (Al-Reuters)

(Reuters) - Last month was the warmest May on record, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said on Tuesday.
It was also the 303rd consecutive month that was hotter than the 20th century global average for that month, according to Deke Arndt, chief of the climate monitoring at NOAA's National Climatic Data Center.
"Since February 1985, every single month has been warmer than its 20th century average," Arndt said by telephone from Asheville, North Carolina.

LOL. Seems like EVERY month has been the “warmest on record.” Do people still really believe this BS anymore?
We didn’t even break a hundred in Texas by then, which we sometimes do in March.
We need a new term for the sheer magnitude of lies being pushed at the public by the LSM. BS just doesn’t do it justice.
It is absolutely impossible to extract a global temperature from existing data because all points are selective.
Since February 1985, every single month has been cooler than the 10,000 BC average, as well.
No mention of how cold February was (at least where I live).
After February, I don’t mind all this “global warming.” Feels a heckuva lot better.
They should check out the Pacific Northwest: coldest “high” temps on record for Portland yesterday, average temps are running 10 degrees lower than normal for the month of June so far.
Which just goes to show the climate models these clowns use are completely useless. It has been one of the coldest, rainiest sprining in living memory here in MN. It has no where been “hot”.
The Bilderburg group is calling for global cooling and don’t you forget it!
Only in SOME places.
Here in AZ it was the coolest in memory. We kept waiting for 100 degrees and it was late in the month.
My friend in Ca said the tree fruit crops are late because of unusually cool weather this year.
This article must believe only the temps in their area should be considered.
They must have their thermometer somewhere near the bodies of that “hot” Algore and his new friend.
Do they really think we’re that stupid?
The only warmth I detect is the one coming from this steaming pile of crap.
Humbling time for humanity. We can’t plug up a stinking hole in the ocean, but we hope to change the world’s climate?
After a warm spring we haven’t seen the sun once in June and the temperatures are way below normal. It all balances out.
“Oceania was not after all at war with Eurasia. Oceania was at war with Eastasia. Eurasia was an ally. “
I wonder where the May hot spots occured...:^)
Central California has been very cool this spring. Only one weekend of >90 deg all year. Very unusual.
It sounds like the whole west coast was cooler than normal this spring. So which parts of the country were hotter than normal? It sure didn’t make the news.
NOAA gets the Temp dat from Rectal Thermometers stuffed in the rectums of Al Gore, Barrack, Biden, Kerry, Boxer, Waxman, and a bunch of other Democrats that they depend on to get money from. Like NASA (See Ozone Hole), NOAA is a Whore and will say whatever the popular culture is.
I’m pretty sure they are transitioning from land based thermometers to satellite measurements.
That way, no one can look over their shoulders.
How about; Galactic Excrement or GE for short since GE is behind a lot of this.
It’s Reuters...what else should be expect?
By the way, if you Google Deke Arndt and scan the hits you will find that he would probably say the same thing if he was freezing to death in August.
positively cool here in NY.
I’m sorry. This American doesn’t believe the government anymore. The government has become too greedy. It’s one lie after another.
Do people still really believe this BS anymore?
NO, they had hoped that all the sheeple would beleive. Now because some of the sheeple have stumbled upon the truth, the liars have to double-down on the BS.
When their political allies are put out in Nov. we will hear no more of this crap. These “climate experts” give a whole new meaning to “which way the wind blows” and to the true meaning of expert “X is the unknown and spert is a drip under pressure”.
this is grossly embarrassing to true scientists everywhere. CA has had one of the coldest springs in 50 Years. Montana continues to get snow. Coldest temps in the mid west iirc - the list can go on and on. What freekin planet do these morons live on?
Ditto here in the south SF Bay Area. It was 92 on Sunday, but jacket weather yesterday! 25 degree drop.
Warmest? Where? Here in New Jersey had my heat on for 5 days in May because temps were in the low 40’s. Can not remember ever having to turn on the heat in May. Maybe these morons can pay my bill for the month.
That must be why our furnace was running so many days last month. The Gore-bull warming crowd must not have included any temperatures from Western New York.
And just today it is reported that South Africa received its first snow in 30 some years.
They have to keep up the lies because it is the only way they can recoup their investment in CCX (thanks in part to BHO).
You must turn off the heat! Nobama is sending you extra carbon tax. The idea is to make us all so hot (under the collar) that we won’t notice that globull warming is a fairy tale.
In the high desert it was the coldest on record.
No kidding. We haven’t even had a day in the 80’s yet, which normally occurs at the beginning of May. I bought a new gun in April and haven’t been able to complete my barrel break in because I haven’t had a day calm enough to zero past 50 yards.
The first day I quit after 15 shots and the wind started gusting over 50 MPH. It has rained half of the last month, which never happens.
Global warming my a$$.
We had to turn on our furnace on Friday and Saturday nights. That’s unheard of mid-June.
Obviously no one was looking at temperatures from the Midwest where it has been decidedly cooler than normal and apparently no one saw the snowstorm in the Black Hills the third week in May.
They didn’t look at S. Cal either - we had snow, ice and hail.
Ha. This one ranks right up there with Nepolitano’s statement that the “borders are secure”.
Not in Kansas City. I thought May was cooler than usual.
Despite no global warming in 10 years and recording setting cold in 2007-2008, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climatic Change (IPCC) and computer modelers who believe that CO2 is the cause of global warming still predict the Earth is in store for catastrophic warming in this century.
Global temperatures increased for twenty years from the late 1970s to the late 1990s but have actually been cooling the last eleven years. The global warming and subsequent cooling were even predictable due to hundreds of years of historical trends and observation of the impact of variations in solar activity on global temperature.
Did you know that the Roman Period and Medieval Period were both several degrees warmer than today’s temperature. The world then cooled at least four degrees from 1450 to 1850. This period was called the Little Ice Age (a period of glacial advance, the same glaciers that are in retreat today). These temperature variations were not caused by man.
The reports circulating from the U.N.’s climate summit in Copenhagen also don’t mention scientific climate data that suggest the globe has cooled in the last 10 years.
Data from the U.S. National Climate Data Center indicate temperatures in the U.S. have cooled over the last decade at a rate that projects to a decline of 7.3 degrees Fahrenheit over the next century
Deke Arndt is one of these types who understands the importance of lighting matches and holding them close to thermometers.
BS. It was damned cold here.
Yes it is the middle of June here in the Seattle area and it feels more like March. Ask farmers whether it was the warmest May ever. Crops around here are way behind because it has been cold. How long do these partisan hack “scientists” think they can distort the record by cherry picking weather reporting stations? They only have one weather station left in the far North of Canada that supposedly gives the average for locations thousands of miles away.
For accurate information on what the techniques these clowns are trying to use this time to mislead politicians.
