US Having Its Coolest Year On Record

coldest-yearThe percentage of US HCN stations to reach 90 degrees was the smallest on record this year, with four of the five coolest years occurring above 350 PPM CO2. The most widespread heat occurred in 1931, when more than 98% of stations were over 90 degrees.

    The title can’t be more misleading (the purpose of this blog I presume) as this has nothing to do with average temperatures. In fact past 12 months were the warmest without even having the famous El Nino event.

      Feister,
      Please do not point out scientific fact. It’s really screwing up their entire argument about global warming.

        “We need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination… So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts… Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.” – Prof. Stephen Schneider, Stanford Professor of Climatology, lead author of many IPCC reports

        “We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.” – Timothy Wirth,
        President of the UN Foundation

        “No matter if the science of global warming is all phony… climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.” – Christine Stewart,
        former Canadian Minister of the Environment

        “The data doesn’t matter. We’re not basing our recommendations on the data. We’re basing them on the climate models.” – Prof. Chris Folland, Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research

        “The models are convenient fictions that provide something very useful.” – Dr David Frame, climate modeler, Oxford University

        “I believe it is appropriate to have an ‘over-representation’ of the facts on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience.” – Al Gore, Climate Change activist

        “It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.” – Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace

        “The only way to get our society to truly change is to frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe.” – emeritus professor Daniel Botkin

        “The climate crisis is not a political issue, it is a moral and spiritual challenge to all of humanity. It is also our greatest opportunity to lift Global Consciousness to a higher level.”
        – Al Gore, Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech

        “We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis…” – David Rockefeller, Club of Rome executive member

        “Humanity is sitting on a time bomb. If the vast majority of the world’s scientists are right, we have just ten years to avert a major catastrophe that could send our entire planet’s climate system into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything we have ever experienced – a catastrophe of our own making.” – Al Gore, An Inconvenient Truth

        “We are getting close to catastrophic tipping points, despite the fact that most people barely notice the warming yet.” – Dr James Hansen, NASA researcher

        “By the end of this century climate change will reduce the human population to a few breeding pairs surviving near the Arctic.” – Sir James Lovelock, Revenge of Gaia

        • A little long there Wingnut. I had to edit your post, the format it was in was waaaaaaay too long. It’s still a little too long. In the future if you have something like this, try breaking it up into several posts. Thanks.

    • Is that this NOAA?
      http://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2013/01/26/noaa-deception-over-2012-heatwave/
      Sorry, but the NOAA is at the heart of the deception over climate change, global warming. They can’t be trusted.

    • cool story bro

  • who the heck cares get a freakin life

    • Have you ever heard of capitalization, and punctuation?

  • melpheos

    And…. So it was very cold at a given time in the US… How does this prove this year was the coolest ?
    2014 is about to be the warmest year since 1998 which was already a record since 1880…

    • JC

      Last winter was the coolest on record for much of North America. It strains logic to suddenly claim that it was the warmest year ever.

      • Like I have said countless times, as long as we have federal, and global institutions falsifying and manipulating data, there will be no end to this lie because the true believers will always have some data to point to and say “See? NOAA, or CRU says it was the warmest year ever!”. Or, “The IPCC says it was the warmest year ever!” We can’t win against official lies. The reality of it all will win out in the end, I hope.
        I posted this article recently: http://www.thenewamerican.com/tech/environment/item/18888-embarrassing-predictions-haunt-the-global-warming-industry
        It is very telling of just how many things they’ve gotten wrong.

        You have liquid water… put it in the freezer… it becomes ice.
        Then, Ice, if you take it out of the freezer, it liquefies an become water. Right? so, Freezer is Winter, outside is summer. So, if summer gets hotter, and we can see the fact that the north pole ice casket is melting.. that means more water to be liquefied. That water doesn’t convert back to ICE in winter and stay in the north pole. That water goes into the ocean. So, fresh water + salt water.. change the speed of see water become vapor during hot season ANY WHERE in the world. Vapor = Condensation, Condensation becomes cloud, cloud gets loaded and become rain.. rain falls to the earth and has no where else to go but into deep earth, rivers and oceans. So, the cycle continues. Every year there’s more flood, more land slides (earth can’t hold that much water). Also, you get drought, since the water washes the earth where plantation was successful, it washes the “nutrients” off the soil, plants don’t grow, no more shadow to sustain fresh water, it dries at merely 10 years.
        oh wait… I’m wasting my time by pointing facts….

        • Pointing facts? Is that what you were doing there? I really couldn’t tell. How about these facts? There has been no warming for 18 years. Polar ice is doing just fine. There has been no increase in the severity or incidence of droughts, floods, landslides, etc. You’re a kook.

          • cheeseggs

            What? now climate change deniers want to use facts? How about look at the Earth blackbody curve and the absorption lines of CO2? You can draw the conclusions from there

          • Do you mean absorption bands 2.7, 4.3 and 15 micrometers (µM)? Could you explain blackbody curves? I know what a blackbody is but have never heard of a blackbody curve. Perhaps you can enlighten us? Does a blackbody curve explain why there’s been no warming for 18 years?

  • Chainix

    Is it me or only the USA’s “scientist” and “politicians” are the only ones in the entire world denying the global warming?

    Global warming is probably not the most accurate term to be describing our current situation. Climate change is probably better terminology here. However, with that said, i feel like the issue of climate change is still a really big issue. Lets start of with the Greenhouse effect and industrialization. So, industrialization led to the increase of CO2 emissions. Now, CO2 ,along with many other gasses, is a greenhouse gas. This greenhouse gas insulates the earth and allow for the radation emitted from the Sun to be insulated. When you have more CO2, you have hotter temperatures. Now, with that said, CO2 emissions have been the highest to date in Earth’s history because of Industrialization. This is a KNOWN and proven fact. How is this a proven fact ? LOOK AT OUR SOLAR “NEIGHBOR” VENUS ! Venus and Earth started at VERY similar paces, however, Venus began emitting large amounts of CO2 from its core which led to the massive rise in temperature on its surface. SOUND FAMILIAR ? I think it does ! large emissions of greenhouse gasses = rise in surface temperature. However, like i said, Global warming is probably not the best term to describe our current situation. What we are going through is, more or less, climate change. Climate change is a long-term change in the Earth’s climate, or of a region on Earth. Climate change can be contributed to the amount of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere ! Making the temperatures much hotter, which can also lead to massive hurricanes (Hurricane Sandy), typhoons (Mammoth Typhoon in India), and SNOW STORMS !!! (Snow in Saudi Arabia, Record amounts in Buffalo, New York). A warmer climate spurs the evaporation of water from land and sea and allows the atmosphere to hold more moisture—thus setting the stage for more extreme precipitation. SOUND FAMILIAR ??? A warmer climate + Global Warming = Climate change. Thus leaves us to today. You can disprove Climate change all you want, but the scientific facts are there. What we know and base our entire scientific thinking on can prove that Climate change is real and if we dont do something will have devestating effects on the surivial of our species. If you want to fight science, go ahead, but ill choose to believe what i can see and what can be proven. My sources of Information are NASA and other various Science textbooks and Intelects.

    • Really? Did you not read anything else here. This is from a reply to another person that used Venus as an example of runaway greenhouse warming.

      “Please stop using Venus as an example of runaway greenhouse warming. The high temps on that planet are due mainly to the much higher pressures exerted by the mass of the atmosphere. It has very little to do with it’s CO2 content, nor its closer proximity to the Sun. CO2 does not absorb solar radiation, it absorbs IR in the bands of 2.7, 4.3 and 15 micrometers only, and the atmosphere is so massive on Venus that very little radiation from the Sun reaches the surface to be absorbed by the surface to re-emit IR in those specific bands. So forget about Venus.”

      http://mc-computing.com/qs/Global_Warming/Venus.html

      No one is denying that there is climate change! In fact, that is the very reason that this myth has been able to last this long. The climate changes constantly. It has always been in flux since the beginning of the atmosphere.
      CO2 does not wrap the planet in a blanket. It absorbs only three narrow bands, or wavelengths, of IR (Infra Red) radiation. It does not trap heat. When those three bands are absorbed adding more CO2 can not absorb more.

      There is also no evidence that there has been an increase in the severity or occurrence of hurricanes, typhoons, snowstorms, tornadoes, droughts, floods, you name it. It is simply not happening anywhere. http://www.globalwarming.org/2014/09/11/rising-co2-concentrations-no-measureable-impact-on-floods-droughts-and-storms/

      I’m sorry, but you’ve been lied to from day 1. Do some research on your own. You may just find that your textbook is full of crap, and was written with a political agenda in mind. So get off your a*s and start looking for some facts on your own. Forget everything you learned in school too. http://www.prweb.com/releases/2014/04/prweb11779085.htm
