17 U.S. Cities Headed for Warmest Year Ever » EcoWatch: yes, there were a couple of cities nearly all of which were in the narrow ‘warm’ belt along the West Coast and slightly inland, that were ‘hot’ last year. Phoenix, Arizona was one of them which amuses me. Virtually no days were ‘hottest ever’ but thanks to manipulating statistics, they can still claim it is hottest which is ridiculous. I have lived through 3 ‘hot cycles’ that come every 20 years when the sun peaks in its solar cycles. This is the coldest solar cycle, ever, rivaling the very cold 1970’s cycle. And any warmth last winter (summer was NOT hot at all in Phoenix!) has vanished as we see from maps this week, for example.

Comparing temperatures of the past and present is hazardous due to moving gages around and the growth of cities which are hotter than countryside. Generally speaking, moving a temperature gage that is used for official purposes usually is done to remove these from ‘heat islands’ which form around them. But recently, the reverse is happening. In their anxiety to create a global warming data set, NASA has set up a dishonest thermometer in a specific hotter place rather than the reverse. And I want to illustrate the worst example of them all: Death Valley’s new Badwater station.
The Huffington Post is very big on the global warming business so this is the headline yesterday about the IPCC report: World Running Out Of Time To Stop Global Warming, UN Report Says
Free Notes – Oh Susanna (Oh I came from Alabama with my banjo… a song for these global warming times. The sun is so hot we are freezing to death. Now, there are localities on this planet that are not cold. But in general, it is getting cooler in key places and the warm spots are the anomalies that don’t change the fact that huge continental areas are very, very cold this winter, colder than normal by a long shot.
