We’ve talked about this before.  Record cold temps don’t count for anything and are shunned, but the moment there is record heat, that is definitive proof as far as the Church of Global Warming is concerned.  Not only are temperatures down now compared to the last fourteen years, but they are also down compared to the last 1000 years and the last 65 million.  We’ve also pointed out here the record cold that we experienced all throughout the United States and the world, so it’s not just us saying this.

But as predicted, the Church is using high temps now as more proof of Global Warming.

From USA Today:

March, April, May and June set records, making 2010 the warmest year worldwide since record-keeping began in 1880, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says.

“It’s part of an overall trend,” says Jay Lawrimore, climate analysis chief at NOAA‘s National Climatic Data Center. “Global temperatures … have been rising for the last 100-plus years. Much of the increase is due to increases in greenhouse gases.”

Lets first dispute what he is saying.

The claims “Part of an overall trend” and “Rising for the last 100-plus years” are easily dealt with.  Anyone can find a trend anywhere if the limit their data enough.  In this case, he is limiting his data to the last 100 years (or rather the 100 years before the temps started going down.)  If I, for example, Looked at the temps and their trend between 4:00am and 11:00 am, I could say the temps are going up, and would be accurate.  If however I looked at the temps for the last 24 hours, a different story is told.

They are looking at the last 100 years because that is what fits their claims, and anyone who believes this hog-wash apparently doesn’t question the fact that the process used to record world-wide temperatures in the 1880s were not as accurate as the 1950s.  And the 1950s were not as accurate as the 1970s.  The 1970s were not as accurate as now.

To quote myself:

Eco-Fascist: warmest in a hundred years bla bla bla, I love Al Gore bla bla bla
Me: 100 years eh?
Eco-Fascist: Yeah.
Me: Think those temperature records of 1908 are accurate?
Eco-Fascist: Yeah.
Me: Like… Satellite accurate?
Eco-Fascist: ummmm… sure.
Me: *Bitchslap*

Then there are other issues with temperature records like pulling the stations in Siberia from the global temperature averages, but I digress.  As ClimateGate has shown us, those who have much to gain on the Church of Global Warming, are willing to manipulate data to fit their preaching.

From the same article:

Marc Morano, a global-warming skeptic who edits the Climate Depot website, says the government “is playing the climate fear card by hyping predictions and cherry-picking data.”

Joe D’Aleo, a meteorologist who co-founded The Weather Channel, disagrees, too. He says oceans are entering a cooling cycle that will lower temperatures.

He says too many of the weather stations NOAA uses are in warmer urban areas.

“The only reliable data set right now is satellite,” D’Aleo says.

Jay Lawrimore, climate analysis chief at NOAA‘s National Climatic Data Center also said: “Much of the increase is due to increases in greenhouse gases.”

Um yea, for a rebuttal of this, you can look anywhere on the Church of Global Warming.

Take note how very few (if any) of the ‘cooling’ articles mention Global Warming or Climate Change. Three others from USA Today in January (here, here, and here) talk of the record cold, but do not dare to mention Global Warming or Climate Change at all.

It is amazing that while there are tens of thousands of scientists who don’t subscribe to this religion, the people who do are in absolute disbelief of their existence, or continue to belittle us for daring to look outside their window of dogma.  Speaking of which, I have talked with Dr. Art Robinson on this issue before.  Who the hell are we to even say that 280ppm of CO2 is “normal”?

But I digress.  Keep an eye on the news and how they report this religion.  Then note, as I did during the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 winters how little you hear about it.  Every summer is proof of Global Climate Change and an excuse for larger government to those who are looking for reasons for their God (Al Gore) to be right, and every winter means absolutely nothing.
