It’s Hot Out There, Except Where It’s Not

Keeping up the global warming storyline, USA Today yesterday reported that “many regions already are sweating out unseasonably warm weather that promises plenty of dog days ahead.” Lots of regional stats, with forecasts that they represent “a sign of a toasty summer ahead, according to the Climate Prediction Center in Camp Springs, Md.”

Word of advice: Don’t trust any science or forecasting coming out of Maryland.

The only hope for finding unseasonably cooler weather this summer, according to the newspaper? Go to Minnesota or the Dakotas. As for you Yankees, “Hot often means dry, and 2009 has been the fourth-driest on record for the Northeast.”

Meanwhile, it’s pretty clear USA Today doesn’t read Drudge, or they would have seen yesterday that most of New York was under a frost advisory.

Not a surprise. I quit reading USA today because of their biased reporting on all sorts of issues.

Did a quick check of the Northeast region of U.S. The January to April 2009 temperatures were ranked 60th out of similar periods over last 110 years – not exactly sizzling in terms of historical temps.

The hottest Jan-April period was 1904, 2nd hottest was 1912, 3rd hottest was 1940, 4th hottest was 1978 and 5th hottest was 1923.

Another example of how MSM using computer model predictions trumps climate reality. Someone point their reporters to our non-model temperature charts here, please:

I can tell that this is not the first time at all that you write about the topic. Why have you chosen it again?

p.s. Year One is already on the Internet and you can watch it for free.
