Let us give NOAA credit for making this release:
“The average temperature in January 2008 was 30.5 F. This was -0.3 F cooler than the 1901-2000 (20th century) average, the 49th coolest January in 114 years. The temperature trend for the period of record (1895 to present) is 0.1 degrees Fahrenheit per decade.”
For those that have been harping about my “2nd coldest in 15 years” headline, it appears that NCDC has that one beat with “the 49th coolest January in 114 years”.
- AND READ THIS EARLIER POST: 2008 WAS THE SECOND COLDEST YEAR IN THE LAST 15.
- AND THIS WINTER MIGHT BE WORSE: MUCH OF THE WORLD IS HAVING SEVERE WINTER WEATHER - THE UK; EUROPE; THE MIDDLE EAST; CENTRAL ASIA; CHINA ARE ALL HAVING THE MOST SNOW IN SEVERAL DECADES.
- AGW IS A LEFTIST HOAX PERPETUATED BY THE LEFT TO ACHIOEV THEIR LONG-HELD GOALS: TO RAISE TAXES, INCREASE REGULATIONS, PREVENT THE EXPANSION OF OUR INDUSTRIAL ECONOMY AND THE FREEMARKET.
- BY SCARE-MONGERING THE PUBLIC INTO SHYING AWAY FROM INCREASED INDUSTRIALIZATION, THE LEFTIST AGW CROWD HAS DIRECTLY ELEVATED THE PRICE OF OIL AND - (BY PREVENTING US FROM BUILDING REFINERIES, POWER PLANTS AND EXPLOITING FOR OIL IN THE USA) - FORCED THE WEST TO SEND MORE MONEY TO THE JIHADO-TERROR FINANCIERS IN OPEC THAN WE REALLY NEEDED TO, OR SHOULD HAVE BEEN. \\
- (WE SHOULD BE DRILLING FOR OIL IN ANWR AND OFF THE COASTS OF CA AND FL - AND WE SHOULD BE BUILDING DOZENS OF COAL-BURNING POWER PLANTS. THESE EFFORTS WOULD INCREASE SUPPLIES AND LOWER PRICES.
- AND THEY ARE DOMESTIC, WHICH MEANS WE'D BE SENDING LESS MONEY TO OPEC.)
- AND THESE SCARFE-MONGERGERS ARE ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR KEEPING AFRICA AND THE THIRD WORLD IN UNDERDEVELOPED POVERTY: WHAT THE THIRD WORLD NEEDS TO END THEIR POVERTY IS EXACLTY WHAT WE USED TO END OURS: INDUSTRIALIZATION
