    Are you are using unadjusted temperatures? This spring may turn out to be even warmer than last year once the adjusted temperatures are in.

    • Mike says:

      thank goodness for NASA…we’ll get this fixed, and right quick!

      • Shade says:

        Damage control damage control…..Who let this information out!

      • harvey says:

        Well ok, we’ll let it go this time, but don’t let it happen again.

      • Ted says:

        Yep, they will change the numbers to fit Gore’s predictions.

      • Tom says:

        No Problem. Michael Mann should be of great help fixing this as well.

      • Dan says:

        What is the difference between an adjusted and an unadjusted thermometer reading? Please don’t be snarky, I am really asking.

      • Rebecca Huff says:

        coldest “start” to spring……. not coldest spring.

      • The solution to this cold spring is to tax the people for global cooling before it destroys the earth.
        A tax of 66.6% should take care of the problem.
        Call your politicians and tell them to start taxing right away before its too late. This is exactly how the dinosaurs died. They got really cold.

        Or Americans could simply OBEY income tax law.

        There are only TWO objects of concern in tax code.
        A. Taxable income
        B. Exempt income

        IRS says…

        Federal tax law BEGINS with the Internal Revenue Code (26 USC)

        Federal tax Regulations (26 CFR) –PICK UP where the Internal Revenue Code leaves off

        The Service is bound by the Regulations. – Internal Revenue Manual,

        SOURCE: IRS dot GOV

        According to IRS themselves, Income tax law is written in Regulations, and most importantly, IRS must follow and obey Regulations.

        – – TAX LAW: (according to IRS, Pick Up… in Regulations)

        Exempt income – 26 CFR 1.861-8T(d)(2)(ii)
        (the legal defintion, codified, i.e. there can be only one)

        Income that is not – 26 CFR 1.861-8T(d)(2)(iii)
        (the list of taxable income, codified. BINGO!)

        Electronic Code of Federal Regulations, U.S. Govt Printing Office.

        According to U.S. Income tax law (a precise code), most income is exempt, i.e. NOT taxable, while very little income is not exempt, i.e. taxable.

        Of course, criminals often say, I didn’t do it. So, naturally, the government perps (e.g. senators, congressmen, tax court judges, many tax pros and other such tax-dependents) say Sec. 861 is frivolous, yet there we see it, actually written in law, codified, in black and white, … by who else, but more government perps.

        Arrest the perps … Obey the law, before they create the next fraudulent taxpayer bailout.
        Your children are already born as tax-slaves – required to pay a debt created before their birth.
        Put a stop to it, read your income tax law, then follow and obey the law.

        US Income tax law is prescribed in the regulations, 26 CFR 1.861-8T(d)(2)(iii).
        Make the IRS and US Govt obey. Its your country, not theirs.

      • NASA is busy making nice with the radical Muslims as per Owebamaos instructions after he cut their funding.

      • Mike H says:

        Dan: Don’t know if Steve or somebody else gave you an answer below.

        Thermometers are affected/distorted by their local physical environment. The data keepers have algorithms which adjust for those. For example, the urban heat island effect elevates the temperature and NASA adjusts down for that. An example in the opposite direction is if a pile of melting snow is on top of the terminal, has a cooling effect. Because most reactions are exothermic, there are many more opportunities for incorrect elevated temps then false depreciated temps. I’ll leave it to you to determine how accurate you think they are. It just so happens they are caught making a “mistake”, the correction always seems to adjust the temp. down.

      • A. Levy says:

        Did they check with fat Algore first? He’ll simply blame the cold weather on global warming.

      • chuckster says:

        But Warming makes it cooler! You’d understand it if you actually read the studies done.

      • Joe Panella says:

        No sir, NASA is busy building the self esteem of worldwide Muslims, as per Obama’s orders. Temperature, schemperature, first things first. The Muslims are feeling down and trodden. You know all those beheadings and all.

    • robin hadley says:

      Yes, please let’s adjust the temperatures so as to show Global Warming! Can’t let that one slip by!

      • robin hadley says:

        Let’s see. My comment has been “awaiting moderation” for about six hours now. Could it be someone doesn’t like to hear the truth?

      • RobertC says:

        Best one I have heard lately: “Climate Change isn’t about the temperature”

        Hide the decline, pass the grant money…

      • Jim says:

        First of all geniuses, why did they change the name of this emergency from “Global Warming” to “Climate Change”. Did it have anything to do with the fact that the people from whom the temps were gotten from, stopped using Northern testing sites, and were lying about everything, just to keep getting grants, that were going to be paid by carbon taxes. If you liberals can’t stop listening to someone caught lying, just because of ideals, then you need to stop voting. Taxes will NOT fix a problem that does not exist! It feeds socialism and nothing else! Redistribution of Wealth. Please wake up!!

    • Bruce Gregory says:

      You hope! Man-made science is what you embrace. Give the witch doctor of your choice a hug and if a human sacrifice is necessary, offer up yourself or one of your family members. I live green when possible, but more importantly, I live life to the fullest. No guilt!

    • KellyJ says:

      Too bad Hansen retired. Who’s going to add the magic “correction factors” (your adjustment) to make 16 years of cooling become increased heating?
      In REAL science, if the data does not match the theory, the theory is wrong. In Global Warming, if the data does not fit the theory, you “correct” the data to make it fit.

      • fred says:

        Yes that is true. IT THEN BECOMES POLITICAL SCIENCE!

      • 4Deuce says:

        I worked at NASA-Goddard for 13 years and I recall that Hansen’s last NASA supervisor at Goddard once stated that Hansen “was one of NASA’s greatest embarrassments”. Once Al Gore, then VP, selected/annointed Hansen as one of his scientific spokesmen, Hansen became untouchable by the NASA command structure. Years later, after being brought into the Gore camp, Hansen was doing a radio interview and claiming that the Bush WHite House had been suppressing his pro-AGW commentaries. The radio host interviewing him then embarrassed Hansen by actually being informed about Hansen’s pro-AGW activities and the radio host noted that before Hansen walked into the radio studio that day, he had done radio, TV, newspaer and magainze interviews on his AGW beliefs 270 times previously – meaning that any efforts by the Bush WH to supress his scientific “free speech” seemed completely ingenuous. This represnts the ethical core of Hansen and his fellow AGW promoters — an utter vacuum.

      • evdebs says:

        Is “4Duece” his I.Q.?

        “…newspaer (sic) and magainze (sic) interviews on his AGW beliefs 270 times previously – meaning that any efforts by the Bush WH to supress (sic) his scientific “free speech” seemed completely ingenuous (?). This represnts (sic) the ethical core of Hansen and his fellow AGW promoters — an utter vacuum.”

        Speaking of “utter vacuums,” I’m assuming the hollow sound I’m hearing is a product of the void between your ears.

        Of the 13,950 studies released between 1991 and 2012, 24 rejected AGW. Those 24 were largely produced by stooges either directly on the Koch/Exxon payrolls or working indirectly for them through front groups such as the Heartland Institute.

        What were you doing at Goddard? Pushing a broom, or holding the dustpan?

        • PhilJourdan says:

          How many of those papers proved AGW?

          Here’s a hint. What is less than your claim of 4Deuce’s IQ? Your IQ and the answer.

          Here’s an education for you. Science 101. You have to disprove the null hypothesis FIRST, before you can start advancing an alternate hypothesis.

        • 4Deuce says:

          COBE, TDRSS, Hubble and the James Web are on my resume – along with a citation of that Johns Hopkins MBA they gave me. Other than calling some people stooges and referring to my low IQ – funny how you know so much about me when you are a total stranger to me – do you have anything that offers up any true, unmanipulated empiracal evidence that proves AGW? If you have some, send it to those Al Gore and Hansen types who keep telling us AGW is proven via consensus – which proves the lack of scientific proof.

    • Gary Lacey says:

      Is your comment TIC or are you serious? I was going to comment (TIC) that it was caused by ‘global warming’, just ask Gore.

    • Unadjusted??? You mean like the unemployment numbers or the economic growth numbers???
      Assuming you were not being sarcastic, my comment to you is to just let go. Let go of the ALGOR madness. Accept it that weather and climate have always changed and always will. ANd try to do something positive with the restt of your life. That is, if we don’t all freeze to death.

      • JCinCS says:

        Funny. I was thinking the same thing. They use the same equipment to divine the unemployment numbers. Then they adjust upward a month later, when no one is paying attention.

    • moron says:

      We’ll get the guys at Penn State on this problem immediately. Might need to relocate the thermometers closer yet to heat sources!

      • 30 Years in a Big Rig says:

        Move them to the jet wash at both ends of the runway. That way you’re covered if the wind changes direction. It worked here at our airport.

      • Anon says:

        Good grief, reporters found one several years ago right outside an air conditioner vent! What’s next — inside blast furnaces?

    • Marv Buckley says:

      Yeah, by the time the Gore-bies adjust for warming we could be experiencing boiling oceans.

    • Richard_Iowa says:

      I suspect that if/when the temperatures are adjusted that they will go down.

    • Evan S. Brown says:

      If at first you don’t succeed…manipulate the data.

    • rlr says:

      adjusted how?

      • Paul D says:

        Use an ALGORErythm

      • Brian Macker says:

        They have to do things like adjust for the time of day that the temperature was taken. Obviously if yo take the morning temp at 8:00am instead of 6:00am you need to adjust that temperature down.

      • wbill says:

        Gary D has nailed it. His chart (from NOAA) shows year to year increases in the ‘ adjustment to 0.4 degrees C from early 80s to 1999. It must have been then when the adjustments were just too high to raise higher year after year. This is obvious data manipulation. Like the time they flew a CO2 sensor behind a jet plume to measure the increased CO2. They published the data and then had to re-tract. Global warming has been nothing but a causation postulation. It is hotter, there are more cars, -> therefore more cars are making it hotter. (the postulation is also true if one replaces cars with solar panels). However, now it is cooler??? Classic science failure! A huge industry is built upon environmental science. How many universities have buildings and schools dedicated to the ‘science’, how many directors of environmental outreach? How many ‘green’ initiatives. How much of the borrowed stimulus goes to the ‘PROBLEM”? One could make a villain of anything. Remember when CFCs were ruining the ozone layer. The half life of CFCs was touted as > 50 years and the ozone maps were spreading toward New York. Something had to be done as there was cancer alerts nearly once a week. Well laws were passed and the winners were. DuPont, GE, Allied Signal. R-12 was replaced with R-134 ( R-12 is way more efficient at refrigeration). Guess who makes R-134. We hear nothing about the ozone layer anymore. Why?. If CFC half life is 50 years, there has to be a higher concentration of it now than in 1980. It didn’t all just go away? Take heed, young minds. EPA was originally formed to help the population, but now is engaged in helping the EPA and the crony capitalists. THIS HAS GOT TO STOP.

    • miker5 says:

      Absolutely. Those temperatures have to be adjusted to accommodate the government grant factor.

    • Emerald says:

      True. Once NASA’s reputation killer James Hansen is done, this will but the hottest start since the formation of the planet.

    • Bill Wilson says:

      Yeah, better “adjust” those temperatures before people get the wrong idea. Those feet of snow that the midwest and east got last week sure indicate that it is going to turn out to be “warmer than last year” to me!

    • shua li says:

      Global Warming scientists around the world idle their cars in protest.

    • SerfCityHereWeCome says:

      Oops…let’s make that 273 degrees Kelvin…man, now we’re really burnin’ up!

    • Danno says:

      You want to adjust the temps so they appear warmer? Maybe we can consult Al Gore so he can explain to us that the planet has a fever! It is chile outside.

      • Elroy Jetson says:

        Assuming you live in a South American country, It may be “chile” outside your world, meaning-the country of Chile or Chile Pepper. Or perhaps you find it “chilly”, meaning cold. Or perhaps, it is “chili” meaning “let’s eat”. More than likely, none of these apply.

    • Geodude says:

      Yup, gotta deny the facts and fudge those numbers!

      • Geodude says:

        I know I had to mow the lawn (Northern Ohio) about 5 weeks later than last year.

      • squid2112 says:

        Same here (Nashville), which was nice (don’t like mowing the lawn), but, I would like to play some golf on some nice grass. It has been too cold and rainy here (droughtflooding) to get our golf courses green. Still waiting for spring…

    • goreadjustment says:

      Yes, yes, I see now…once the real/actual “unadjusted” temperatures are redressed, we will have the correct “adjusted” temperatures, which will surely show global warming is alive and well. And all of this adjusting is done by who…..Al Gore and his zealot followers?

    • north_of_60 says:

      yes, as soon as they do their magic AGW adjustments to the temperature data it will be warmer.

    • Mike says:

      you libs will do or say anything to twist the truth around so it conforms to your line of thinking. You will lie, Cheat, and trample all over the truth along with the willing lib press.

    • Capt. Jack says:

      And just think…If they ‘Adjust’ the data enough, maybe they can find another Hockey stick.

    • Adjusted from what? Warm environs, such as cities, that Global Warming alarmists like to concentrate their data from?

    • old white guy says:

      temps are factual they do not need to be adjusted. if it is 45 degress it is 45 degrees. if it was 45 degrees in 1975 and it is 44 degrees in 2013 for the same time period then it is lower than it was during the same time period.

      • jbird says:

        That depends upon what your definition of the word “is” is. 😉

        from another Old White Guy

      • Jason says:

        You’re assuming that the temperature was measured in the same place, at the same time of day, and that other environmental factors have not changed. The above-mentioned air conditioner vent would require some adjustments. Taking the temperature at noon vs midnight would require some adjustments to make the temperatures something that could be compared.

        I’m not a global warming fanatic, I seriously question the likelihood of human caused global warming. My opinions, however (and yours), don’t alter the fact that you can’t compare numbers gathered in different fashions without making some sort of adjustment.

    • Bill Kriebel says:

      And they call US “deniers”!

    • Patriot1742 says:

      Obama has that global warming thing under control – now he is onto providing more rain bows.

    • ILikeItCold says:

      What, you mean they have to adjust the temperatures for inflation? Last year at this time in the Charlotte area we already had 18 days above 80 degrees. This year only 4. I’ve barely used my A/C and I like it cold.

    • SS says:

      I am sure it will be “warmer” no matter what the data says. If not the term climate change will be alternated for warming…gotta have a crisis!!

    • Jack Ryan says:

      The planet has been on a cooling trend for 16 years now. It’s time for the idiot alarmists to start recognizing observations. All of the climate models, ALL OF THEM, have been wrong. Plan for the weather, as climate change is ALWAYS happening and always has been. At this point, we don’t know what we don’t know and those that believe there is a “concensus” are not scientists, they are political scientists, with a heavy lean to the left.

      • walt evans says:

        Thank you. I have been preaching this same message for years. But did you know that when Al Gore sold his tv network that warned about global warming he bought a heating oil company.

    • Susan Daniels says:

      Nice try on sticking with the fallacy of global warming.

    • ByronMAllen says:

      temperatures always adjust down because the heat island effect surrounding weather stations always skews them upwards.

    • Bob says:

      Adjusted means they ignore the actual measured temperature and substitute whatever temperature they need to make their illogically devised models work. Global warming has been proven to be anothing more than an unscientific hoax by several hudred respected scientists as opposed to a bunch of liberal art major pseudo scientists that think they understand a science as complicated as atmospheric physics.

    • Glenn says:

    • Stevo says:

      Please, how do you adjust a temperature reading. Not like it needs to be adjusted for seasonal effects. Maybe some of the thermometers were too far of the ground? Or maybe they were not far enough up al gores and obamas $ss . Oh you must mean the adjust these numbers so they fit the senerio being perpetrated on the people.

    • Robert Johnson says:

      What is meant by “adjusted” temperatures. Temperature is temperature. There is no need to “adjustment” unless your plan is to alter the data to fit your hypothesis. And, that is Scientific Fraud.

    • Jesse Davis says:

      Are you talking about the Accuweather temperatures? I’m almost completely sure that they are falsifying their past temperature data, because I keep a pretty good eye on daily temp. fluctuations, and when I check their data records, it’s about 10 degrees higher on average than what I recall for both the high and low temps here in Fayetteville, NC. They managed to place nearly the entire month of April 10 degrees “above” normal temps, and we had a slew of days that were well below normal.

    • Dr. Wayne Kraus, PhD says:

      All so called ‘global temperature’ vs. time plots (especially those from MBH98 that started this man-made CO2 global warming theory), even if they are not fudged and are based on accurate and reliable temperature data are nothing more than a time series correlation of a tiny sample of data for an earth 4.6 billions years old. The global warming theorists then add a time series correlation of CO2 levels vs time and then falsely assume this prove a cause and effect relationship. Gentlemen this is nothing more sophisticated than a flawed ad hoc ergo propter hoc argument. Please recall that a correlation is a necessary but never a sufficient condition to establish cause and effect relationships. None of these minor 100 or 1000 year correlations establishes any cause and effect relationship at all.

      However, the Beer-Lambert Law of physics firmly establishes that for all substances in nature, including atmospheric CO2, as concentration increases the amount of IR energy absorbed drops exponentially (i.e. drops asymptotically to zero). This basic principle of physics firmly refutes that rising CO2 concentration can cause run away atmospheric heating. All scientist know this and this foolishness about man-made global warming insults my intelligence.

    • Adjusted by whom, Al Gore?

    • R. T. Greenwood says:

      It’s like the CPI. The CPI starts out at 8% and then they make the adjustments that only the great minds at the BLS can make and then the CPI becomes a harmless 1.6%.

      adjusted temperatures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you mean the ones you wack jobs make up to keep this hoax up.

    • ponderosaTX says:

      This upward adjustment process is among the biggest standing jokes in all of science. In fact, the net upward adjustments to surface temperature data performed by NASA and other government agencies are indefensible. The only anthropomorphic effect on climate that is universally accepted by scientists (including those not feeding a the climate-science funding trough) is the urban heat island (UHI) effect. As metropolitan areas grow in population and replace vegetation with buildings and parking lots, urban temperatures have increased, particularly at night. (Designers of passively heated buildings aim for the same effect by including massive heat reservoirs exposed to direct sunlight inside buildings.)

      Most of the weather stations in the US (and other developed countries) were originally positioned on the periphery of cities where human development had little impact on measured temperatures. As those cities have expanded around those weather stations, very few have been moved. So most of the formerly rural and suburban stations are now in urban locations where there are strong UHI effects. The net adjustment to measured temperatures should be substantially downward rather than upward (so current temperature data is directly comparable to data from years past). But these adjustments are subjective and climate scientists have very strong motivation (in the form of research funding and publication bias) to adjust them upward so that they can claim that human development is causing catastrophic global warming, thereby justifying more research funding and more attention from the popular press and scientific journals followed by the popular press. When analyzing statements by climate scientists, caveat emptor!

    • SirGareth says:

      Ahhh yes, the fact that we are still wearing parkas across much of the US as May comes in is due to the fact that “scientists” haven’t fiddled with the numbers yet; until that happens we cant really know that we’re freezing our tails off.

      Just where our our Banyan Trees and Coconut Palms spreading North across the Canadian Border?

      Didn’t Dr Gore and his team of mad “government scientists” promise us all of this?

      This climate con has been going on since the dawn of history; if it rained to little or too much or was too cold or too warm for a spell the backwards cultures were stupid enough to con’ed into paying tribute to the “Gods” (The con artists) for their part in making it so.
      Now the “Gods” have transmogrified into “climate scientist” to better fit into today’s idiot but otherwise secular culture. Other than that, its the same old tune.

      Bank on the stupidity of the US; we voted for Obunghole and that confirms we are now as backwards as cave dwellers ever were and even more superstitious.

  2. Andy DC says:

    Minot, North Dakota is averaging close to 17 degrees below normal for April. Average high has been 33 and average low 18. To put that in prospective, those are close to normal January temperatures in Chicago, after three months of increasing sun angle.

    Fairbanks, Alaska is averaging 14 degrees colder than normal for April, another impressive cold anomaly.

      perspective, not prospective.

    • Bill Wilson says:

      No, we learned in the last post that once the “adjusted” temperatures are in it may actually turn out to be the warmest spring ever! I think the main problem is that we are just not giving enough funding to the Global Warming scientists.

      The low temps of the 1960’s and early 1970’s are clearly seen in the graph and they were preceded also by a strong maximum at the end of the 1940’s, similar to what happened last year. Back then there was a similar pattern of the PDO and AMO anomalies as we have now,

      But will the global environmental arm of the international banking union refund paid carbon taxes and reopen coal burning plants that produce relatively cheap American Made electricity? Maybe we need a new Ice Age to turn that trick.

    • You got it Andy; I never believed it in the first place. Some glaciers may be melting but the carbon credit “SCAM” that Al Gore got filthy rich on was just that. They should all be put in jail and this miserable EPA organization gutted except for major pollution. The earth had it coldest spring during the height of the industrial revolution (did you notice on the graph?) Looks about 1975. Making ourselves energy dependent using domestic fossil fuels is right in front of our faces and good for another 300 years.

      That was really, really good. Thanks for posting that and thanks to the man that presented.

    • C.C. says:

      Thanks for uploading this, Tom. I’ve read about some of this on NASA’s website but found this presentation helpful due to the visual aids. Since the oceans cover so much of the earth, it would make sense that most of the carbon gases would come from the there.

    • James says:


    • Matt Hanson says:

      That was a very interesting lecture! I am with some questions. Is there any speculation or even hard data on what is causing the oceanic outgassing of CO2? Is it concentrations reaching a threshold? Are there ice records that support periodic rises in CO2 like the current rise? My gut tells me that the outgassing of CO2 may be the cause of the acidification that seems to be taking place in the oceans.

      • squid2112 says:

        It’s called heat. When the temperature of the surface of the ocean warms, it out-gasses CO2. As you may know, and the alarmist go nuts over it, it is true that the oceans have warmed a bit over the past 100 years (all natural phenomena), and while this has been occurring, more CO2 out-gasses from the oceans. When the oceans cool, much less out-gassing occurs, sometimes not enough to replace CO2 that is lost in the atmosphere causing a general decrease in CO2 levels within the atmosphere. The oceans take-up CO2 all the time, and also out-gas CO2 all the time. There is a balance between take-up and out-gas. Sometimes the oceans take-up more than they out-gas, sometimes the out-gas more than they take-up. During the course of the past 100 or so years, it is likely that the oceans (as a whole) have been out-gassing slightly more than they take-up, hence the increase in atmospheric CO2. There is a fairly fine line (in geographic terms) between this continuous bouncing back and forth along a line of balance. This is but one, but rather major, driver of CO2. Anthropogenic drivers are minuscule by comparison (almost non-detectable).

      • tckev says:

        There no practical method to make the oceans acid. Because of the ocean’s huge volume, and continual washing of metal salts into them from the land, they have an average Ph of about 8 (alkaline). This also means that the oceans are a huge buffer solution and as such will not rapidly change as so many reaction in it are self-limiting/re-balancing.

  6. Colder than usual? Must be that (phantom) global warming at work.

  7. Europe as well.

    There is a theory that our cold winter/spring is because of a missing ice cube last August.

    But look at the GISS temperature maps, and the Arctic in our neck of the woods has been up to 8C colder than normal. That’s where we have got our weather from, and that is why it has been so friggin cold!

      i too, have seen all these, and before my time were the ‘warming’ histrionics of the ’30s, and before that the “cooling” hyperventilations of the late 1800s. one might think: “how could one go wrong with the all-encompassing have-your-cake-and-eat-it-too “change” of the 20-oughts & teens?”; but if i fear, excepting some miracle, i may not survive that which said “change”, should its culmination be realized, portends next on our horizon: change that graduates into the hopeless flat-line of “Global Stagnation”! should that be construed irrational? May God Help us! as we seem avoid our own entropy toward said universal “room” temperature.

  12. All temp results fall within norms for a general cooling of the earth over last 10,000 years, moreover , warming recently recorded is similar to period 1500 years past. Except for sunspot activity the earth is in a cooling slope over last 500,000 years.
    Earth hot at origin and cooling over life . Look for core cooling trend and Sunspot storms for greatest impact to warming and cooling over any 20 year period.
    Human industrial carbon activity , volcanic activity and thermoexplosives have 10 to 50 year term effects . A big game changer that is difficult to control is a strike by large space rock.

    Please, no one need to panic. This is just weather, not climate change. Everyone knows that the temperatures are rising inspite of no temperature increases in the past decade, along with the increase of CO2. So yes, Global Warming is real even though it is colder.

  21. It’s been crazy cold and windy in southern New Hampshire for the last 3 months. I thought it was my imagination, but it seems like the sun is not giving its usual warmth. If there was a detectable drop in solar luminance, the SOHO satellite would have picked it up, but no word from the scientists. Perhaps, as was mentioned on a website I read recently, aerosols in the stratosphere are reducing the amount of sunlight reaching lower levels of the atmosphere and surface.

This whole scam is to make the elite richer on the backs of everyone else.

    It is obvious that weather is being passed around a climate. Two very different things. One is yearly the other over hundreds or even thousands of years. Temp changes of only 100 years means NOTHING

    • Arctic ice extent is normal.

      • oldefart says:

        You what is so sad about that map is that when that when ‘they’ were not getting the numbers for ice cap shrinkage ‘they’ wanted ‘they’ changed the definition of the Arctic to include all of Hudson’s Bay and James Bay, to include almost South to Newfoundland. The correct definition of the Arctic is the part of the planet INSIDE the Artic Circle – DUH. The Arctic is the area of the planet where the sun never sets in the summer and never rises in the winter.
        So – if you don’t get the results you want just change the data. LOL

  97. Considering temps have only been tracked for the last 200 years or so, this headline is misleading at best. What were the temps for spring back in 1450? 1300? 1100? You have 200 years out of 5 billion years worth of recorded temps, which means you have nothing valid..

    Don’t you all kNow that fridge weather is actually casued by global warming. Also, extra snow, huricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, are due to global warming. I heard recently that the increase in adolescent acne is also related global warming.

  111. Ken Towe says:

    Steve…Hold on! Last year, 2012 was the warmest US year on record. The same pre-Spring period (March, April, 2012)? In the contiguous US-48 ([drd964x.tmpst] …it was the warmest March-April since 1946 and 1910. In fact, it was almost 5°F warmer than the Mar-Apr of 2011. The important point to be made, and often overlooked, is that even after a record warm 2012, the trend in the US-48 since 1998 is still down.

    What happened to global warming?

  114. texan2driver says:

    I guess it’s global warming causing global warming not to globally warm.

  115. 1975 was when the stupid media was claiming we were entering a new ice age. I remember that from talking about it in my civics class my freshman year in high school. Funny how people are so gullible to believe Al Gore long enough to make “global warming” into a multi-billion dollar industry. Der.

  116. Just wait until 2015 when we will have even less solar activity fuming from the Sun. We are entering a 40 year cold snap that is going to be cold, cold, cold. It should not get as bad as the Little Ice Age of 1350 to 1850 in Europe, but it is going to be very cold. Global warming is not happening and anyone who thinks it is does not look at the facts. People like this man will be proven wrong: “the trend is perfectly in line with a temperature increase of 6 degrees Celsius (by 2050), which would have devastating consequences for the planet,” Fatih Birol, IEA’s chief economist told Reuters.”

  117. SaguaroJack says:

    Al Gore says you’re wrong. He says warm or cold, it’s global warming and it’s all our fault. He says we got less than four years left before we’re all crispy critters. And he doesn’t care what Rich Lindzen says. So there.

    The global man made warming hoax will have to regroup and “re-digest” all that missing data to support more global taxation oh I mean global salvation. What a mess. Lost data, phony peer reviews, model details not disclosed because of “proprietary” methods, email leaks that indicated and proved collusion over “desired results” of researchers, political cronyism employed in issuing research grants, blackmail, etc…… The MMGW hoax is dead folks.

    When was it that the “coming ice age” was predicted, somewhere around 1975?

    • J Hill says:

      The AGW types have an answer for everything, no matter now convoluted. They now claim the Time Magazine and Newsweek covers and all the hype in the 1970’s surrounding an alleged ice age on the way – was just journalists hyping the issue and scientists did not support the ice age theory.

      AGW is a religion at this point, so attempting to argue logically is completely useless, Up is down, red is blue, sp they can make anything up and the MSM will carry the ball for them.

    • Anton Seidl says:

      You are right! The new ice age prediction came about 50 years after the first global warming prediction about 1950, I remember it well, I picked up a French copy of Reader’s Digest in Paris which showed an artist’s portrayal of Lake Michigan dried up and the city of Chicago a burning pile of cinders. The title was “Le monde se rechauffe-t-elle? (s the world getting hotter?) I was a global warming skeptic then, and still am! Pace! Al Gore…

    • Anton Seidl says:

      Correction. I meant to say 25 years after the first global warming prediction!

    • Grizz Mann says:

      In September 1958, Harper’s wrote an article called “The Coming Ice Age”. I was starting High School.

      • tomwys says:

        I believe it was a summary of the Ewing/Donn theory of Ice Ages – remarkably prescient considering the Vostok and EPICA cores that would validate much of Ewing and Donn’s theory were still “in the ice” and wouldn’t emerge until 40 years into the future!!!

    Want to know when warmer weather is expected? Check the date for Orthodox Easter every year. Although Protestant and Catholic Easter was several weeks ago, Orthodox Easter Does not come until May 5th this year. Don’t expect a warm-up until after that date. It is a date determined by lunar cycles in relation to the Jewish Passover as events actually occured historically. The Farmer’s Almanac also uses lunar cycles to forecast weather, planting, etc.. Every few years both Easters fall on the same day, and warmer Spring weather follows thereafter.

  144. Don Gray says:

    But wait. Next year the federal climatologists are supposed adjust the emperic temperature data by a factor related to the seasonal variation in the traditional use of gas or electric stoves versus the newer standard of using the microwave, as well as the more recent research-related observation of quantum virtual particles (and their respective contribution to ambient temperatures) as opposed to their traditional unobserved theoretical speculative accounting and corresponding zero net contribution to the internal energy of the atmosphere, if we have properly interpreted the latest statement out of the Gore Institute (GOREBULL WARMING, February 2013 issue). I am certain that after that is taken into account, the starting temperatures of this years spring will be right on track as the warmest ever.

  147. Mark Santeramo says:

    Hard to disagree with global warming now considering these weather extremes. Or are the idiots that think global warming only applies to warming going to rear their ugly heads. Global warmings a stupid term anyway…weather extremes as a byproduct is more accurate.

    • Your beliefs are religious, not scientific

    • squid2112 says:

      Extremes? … can you show me these so-called “extremes”?

    • GW says:

      No, climate scientists sold their hypothesis as global warming. According to this hypothesis, they said we would reach a point of no return where the temperature would rise rapidly. “Weather extremes” as opposed to runaway warming temperatures were never mentioned until it started to look like their models’ predictions might not be correct. One more year like this, and the empirical data will fall outside the maximum range of temperatures predicted, given the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere. The global warming hypothesis is one year away from being falsified via the principles of the scientific method.

    But the Left (i.e., Democrats) will keep insisting on bamboozling all the “useful-idiots” into believing in the scam of “man-made global-warming”, whose name they have “smartly” changed to “man-made climate-change”.

    You see, the earth is not warming, either by itself or by man. However, climate change is a continual, interrupted process since the earth came into being and it will keep changing until the very time earth ceases being. So no one can refute that climate-change exists, but the Left attributes to man, when –seen from absolutely any point of view– the supreme and determining agent in earth’s climate change is the sun, yes, father sun. Well, there can be a supernova gamma-ray burst that may hit earth directly, then we’ll have terminal climate-change.

    The thing is that the Left uses the stratagem to 1- smoother the private-sector with regulation and legislation “based” on “global-warming” or “climate-change”, and 2– edict all sort of regulations and legislation to impose on individuals that, like sheep, people take, such as for example the measure now spreading through all Marxifornia (aka California) whereby stores don’t pack products sold to customers in plastic bags,and IMPOSE on stores to instead sell paper bags for $0.10 each. Stores happily comply because they make a gross profit of more than 9 cents on each bag they sell (they buy those paper bags in the hundreds of thousands at a unit price of a small fraction of a penny), which is a fascist attitude (NOTE: fascism is just half-baked socialism and a convenient –not necessarily indispensable, that is– steppingstone towards full-fledged socialism). And shoppers, like sheep, like androids obey, and there they go, either with their anti-hygienic “reusable” bags (i.e., contaminated with e-coli and salmonella from previous poultry or beef shopping). The idea being conditioning individuals to taking at prima face, like robots, the edicts from “our leaders” in government, institution which is mostly in the hands of the Left.

      Man-made “global warming” is a scam of the hardcore-Left to asphyxiate the free-enterprise system and to subject the individual into submission, all done with legislation, regulation and reforms, all “for the sake of ‘global’ warming. As for climate-change, the climate of the earth has been changing continuously since the time earth came into being, the sun being the agent of supreme influence. I was for a long time deep in the hardcore-Left –not as a stupid foot-soldier, but as a consummate operative and manipulator– having thud come to know, like the palm of my hand, all the trickery of the Left, particularly of the traitorous hardcore-Left (i.e., the anti-democratic Left = fascists, social-“democrats”, “democratic”-socialists, Marxists, Marxist-Leninists –both Bolshevikes and “Western-Marxists”– and communistic-anarchists), not as much as the softcore-Left (i.e., the democratic Left = bleeding-heart liberals and doctrinaire-Keynesians, two sectors that Lenin, very accurately christened by the fitting pejorative of “useful-idiots”).

      Deep in the hardcore Left, from where the “masses” are manipulated, anything related to environmentalism is deemed just a very convenient tool to help advance the push toward socialism and, if possible, toward “the ultimate aim”, which is how Marx referred to communism.

Go to WORLD WEATHER RECORDS, on-line, 1921-1930 and 1931-1940 to see what the monthly means were at Honolulu and then compare with any more recent normals at Honolulu (sea level). The same is not true, however, at Rio de Janiero, Brazil where nothing much has happened since Charles Darwin was there on the HMS Beagle.

Why would any organization being funded to study global warming ever report that they have found evidence that the temps have not increased in several years? When it became clear that the warming theory wasn’t holding up they changed to climate change which should get them several billion more in funding…..then when enough people realize that it is the NATURE of climate to change they will come up with yet another talking point….perhaps the earth is now spinning too fast due to the wealthy not paying their fair share…….I’ve had it with these short sighted single issue do gooders and the politicians who pander to them

So we invent false science based on fear. So people will follow. Then just say “what if we do nothing?” Then government subscribes, regulates, taxes. People have jobs, the rich get richer, the poor get poorer. The cycle continues.
    Where can we go now to get away from this B S? I thought this was the new world. I so want to just say, stop all this madness and all of us can just start over from the beginning. However, I still would learn from our mistakes. I want to live where Common Sense Rules. Not all this BS.

    I think that we all need to ask….who is Al Gore? Is he a engineer? Nope. Darn it. He profits from believed problems. Not real events.

    Warmer air causes more evaporation, and humid air retains temperatures longer… So a warmer winter is a colder spring as the temp shift in the seasons is delayed.

    Stop trying reach a misconception with one data point.

    • Last year was the second warmest spring on record. You are thrashing around in a mindless intellectual void.

      You need to take a physics class. Look up latent heat. You concepts are just plain wrong and have zero scientific basis.

      So GLOBAL WAMING makes things COLDER? I must have missed those concepts in Thermodynamics…….

      Why did liars have to change the name from GLOBAL WARMING to climate change?

      Why are the remedies for climate change the exact same remedies as for GLOBAL WARMING?

      Do you get paid to tell lies on the intewebz? You need to get some better ones……

        It’s not just Global Warming, Climate Change, Climate Discruption, etc… ALL … I repeat, ALL of these doomsday non-problems, from over population, to global cooling, to global warming, to climate change, to peak oil, .. yada, yada, yada … they ALL have the same solution. Just go do a little research into history and see for yourself. The solutions are always the same!

    global warming, global warming, global warming, GLOBAL WARMING??? Who is trying to con who, or what?

    97% of scientists and 100% of scientific organizations agree in human caused climate warming. 13950 peer-reviewed climate articles since 1991 – only 24 reject global warming. Elementary students across the world learn the difference between weather and climate. It will take more than one cold Spring to change the scientific consensus.
