Dating back to 1895, never has the U.S. strung together 12 straight months warmer than May 2011 to April 2012 according to new data released today by NOAAs National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) .
The record-setting 12-month period edged out November 1999-October 2000, the 2nd warmest 12-month period, by 0.1°F. The average temperature was 2.8 degrees F above the 20th century average.
In the last year, the U.S. has experienced its second hottest summer, fourth warmest winter (December through February) and warmest March on record. And NCDC announced April 2012 was third warmest on record.

Leftists want half of us to die off. Because Democrat hives are hotter than the countryside they will die first. When the population is down to mostly conservatives, things will calm down. Earth is just baking off the parasites.
It seems to me they say this EVERY year.
This does not surprise me at all. Has anyone been watching the solar activity? Let them report this information that can be attributed to a non-man caused effect.
Somehow my tagline seems to be taking on more meaning, thanks GWB.
Since the national debt is the highest it has ever been, I posit that there is a positive correlation between increasing national debt and warming temperature trends.
Therefore, all we need to do to cool things down in this country is reduce our national debt...two problems solved with a single strategy.
I remember when I was a child during the mid to late 60’s and early 70’s the summer time temperatures climbing to over 110, in the shade, quite often. In the past 10+ years temperatures that high have not been common in the same area that I lived in back then. At that time all we had in our home was a swamp cooler - swamp being the operative word.
The puddles of water on my deck were frozen this morning although tomorrow we will be set a record for warmth then cool back down with highs in the 50’s and lows in 30’s Helena, Mt
Historical Geology Professor
Is that the actual title? Seeing as most geology is prehistoric, I’m guessing his window of interest is fairly small!
And I really wonder about any scientist, and especially geologists, that believe in anthropogenic warming.
I don’t know what happened 117 years ago, but apparently it happened again.
Here’s an interesting article and discussion about how “scientists” are altering data to validate their global warming beliefs:
Think of it this way: 117 years ago the primary means of recording temperature was for a human to visually read a thermometer or crude cyclinder-like recording device that was most likely located in someones back yard in a rural area, and then manually record the information in a log book, which was passed on from time to time to the people who care about this stuff.
“Hey Pa, please check the temperature on your next rip to the outhouse.”
“OK Ma. Looks like 37 degrees or is that 36 degrees? What the heck - yesterday I rounded up, today, I'll round down.”
Pa writes down 36 degrees in his log book, but the “6” looks like a “5” and so when Pa sends his log to the Meteorology Department at Podunk University, the temperature from Pa's outhouse is officially recorded as 35 degrees. Spread the human error to weather collection points across the Country if only because "we all make mistakes," and then compund those errors over the years until the perfection of supercomputers and weather satellites, and I woould be shocked if average tempretures didn't change consideribly in 117 years.
I found it very interesting that the article (even though we’re all going to die) never mentioned globull warming.
God’s jet stream was blamed!
No, she is just a plain professor that I am aware of.
The course title is Historical Geology and is the second of a 2-semester course in Geology that I have to take for my B.S. degree.
Everyone in the Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric sciences believes in anthropogenic climate change here at my university. I like to call the MEA building the building of “fruits and nuts”. All prius’s, subaru, leaf, etc.
Spurious regression be damned!
And it's about damn time! The Left has been promising me global warming for 40 years - it was nice going through a New Jersey winter not buried in snow or freezing my ass off!
