It was the hottest April on record in the NASA dataset. More significantly, following fast on the heels of the hottest March and hottest Jan-Feb-March on record, its also the hottest Jan-Feb-March-April on record [click on figure to enlarge].

The record temperatures were seeing now are especially impressive because weve been in the deepest solar minimum in nearly a century. It now appears to be over. Its just hard to stop the march of manmade global warming, well, other than by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, that is.

Most significantly, NASAs March prediction has come true: It is nearly certain that a new record 12-month global temperature will be set in 2010.″

North America has been experiencing powerful climate change for the past 18,000 years.

During the last Ice Age, the glacial northern ice cap extended down into the American Midwest, covered over New York under a mile of ice, and down into California.

Since the warming period began, the glaciers have been driven back by about 2,000 miles to the top of Canada and Greenland. New land has been exposed for forests, wildlife, agriculture and human habitation. We now have build cities on land that was once crushed under that deadly ice.

Welcome to PowerSwitch, kingoster, but what is your point?

I started to reply to Kingoster but thought, why bother. He sounds like he has the potential to be the RGR of Climate Change so arguing will be pointless. Unlike RGR he probably has no technical expertise to give at least some credibility to his arguments.

What he said was correct but has absolutely no relevance to the current science on GW/CC. It's like saying that the world has had huge and almost continuous growth in oil supplies for the past 100 and more years: that oil has been found from the USA to Saudi Arabia and the North Sea to the Falklands and since the discovery of oil production has risen from nothing to over 85 mbpd.

It's all true but it isn't the whole story. Kingoster's knowledge stopped being updated at least 100 years ago when he stopped reading the book because the story started getting nasty and he didn't like the potential outcome.

I've also edited out the advert at the bottom of his contribution. Any more contributions with adverts will be deleted.

Would that have been the MSDS Software one that's at the foot of the other Kingoster post? Wink

Yes, Foody. There have been a number of posts from supposedly different people with that advert at the bottom which we have deleted. I couldn't find his second post last night so can you direct me to it, please?

Click on the 'profile' button at the foot of the post and then follow the 'Find all posts by <username>' link.

Works for any spammer. Wink

Did that but nothing came up, Foodi. Anyway, it's all sorted now.

Looks like NOAA has been fiddling the figures again. Does anybody still believe these highest temperature scare stories we get every year ?

Usually newbies to PowerSwitch are welcomed but this is not a forum for flat-earthers. Please take your silly comments elsewhere.

I wonder what flogger is flogging - apart from a dead horse, of course.

No argument to back up your assertion. You're going to have to do better than this if you don't want people to just chuckle and move on.
