    Default How Can There be Global Warming if There is Cooling Going On?

    NOAA: July Temperature Below-Average for the U.S.

    The July 2009 temperature for the contiguous United States was below the long-term average, based on records going back to 1895, according to a preliminary analysis by NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C.
    The average July temperature of 73.5 degrees F was 0.8 degrees F below the 20th century average. Precipitation across the contiguous United States in July averaged 2.90 inches, which is 0.14 inches above the 1901-2000 average.

    An abnormally strong, persistent upper-level pattern produced more than 400 record low minimum temperatures and 1,300 record low maximum temperatures (lowest high temperature) across the nine-state area that make up the Central region.
    Ohio, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania experienced their coolest July on record. Kentucky, Missouri, Wisconsin, and Michigan each had their second coolest July on record, while Minnesota and Tennessee had their third coolest July on record.
    Death Valley, Calif., set a new monthly average maximum temperature at 121.3 degrees F. Temperatures in Death Valley reached 120 degrees F or higher for 22 days, beating the old record of 19 days.
    Several western locations recorded their all-time warmest July. Seattle-Tacoma Airport had an average July temperature of 69.5 degrees F, which was 4.2 degrees F above average. Seattle’s high temperature of 103 degrees F on July 29 is an all-time record. Alaska posted its second warmest July, Arizona had its third warmest, while New Mexico and Washington had their ninth warmest.

    Based on NOAA's Residential Energy Demand Temperature Index, the contiguous U.S. temperature-related energy demand was 13.3 percent below average in July. Much of this can be attributed to cooler-than-average conditions in the heavily-populated Northeast.
    Precipitation was near normal for the contiguous U.S. as a whole. The Northeast saw its ninth-wettest July on record. Above-normal averages in the Northeast, Central and South were counter-balanced by below-normal averages in the Southeast, Southwest, the Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and Iowa regions.

    Massachusetts and Rhode Island each recorded their second-wettest July on record, and Louisiana its third. Several states were much-above-normal, including Maine (fifth-wettest), and Vermont, New Hampshire, and Connecticut (each sixth-wettest).

    Moderate-to-exceptional drought covered 14 percent of the contiguous U.S., based on the U.S. Drought Monitor. This is one percentage point more than the end of June. Drought conditions worsened in southern Texas and northern Wisconsin, but remained largely unchanged in the West and along the western Canadian border.

    About 19 percent of the contiguous U.S. had moderate-to-extreme wet conditions at the end of July according to the Palmer Index, which measures both drought intensity and wet spell intensity.

    I suppose this is Obama's fault too.



    Other than the midwest, everywhere I've been this summer has been hotter than Hell. Haven't been to the Northeast for a while, but, yes they have been cooler.

    BUT...

    The PacNW has been under extreme heat all summer, so has California. The south has been downright unbearable. Convenient how that's left out of the report.

    Do I believe we caused Global Warming? No. Do I believe we're not helping the problem?? Yes.

    I think most level headed people understand that weather patterns are cyclical and regional. There's an ebb and flow to it and humans have some effect on it but we aren't a deal breaker.

    I think the key is simply trying to be reasonable in our efforts to minimize our effect on our environment.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Check out the average winter temperatures.

    *sigh* I'm really tired of arguing about this one. Are there still people out there who think that dumping megatons of crap into the atmosphere has no effect on the air we breathe? Let me know where you live and I'll come over and shit in your swimming pool. It shouldn't bother you much.

    Not as eloquent as most, but pretty spot on.

    No joke...for those hellbent on the idea that people have no impact on the environment and that it's all a bunch of liberal media and democrat party nonsense, I'd like to invite you to come hang out in Pasadena/Deer Park Texas. I grew up there, in the shadow of Exxon, Mobil, Shell and all the other chemical and oil companies. It stinks. The water smells. The sky is orange. Everyone has asthma, suffers from higher than average cases of bronchitis, allergies, upper respiratory infections and cancer.

    Call it whatever you want: global warming/cooling, climate change, pollution, I don't give a shit.

    People do need to take into consideration that our immediate environments will be effected by the shit we pump into the air, water and soil...which means WE will be effected.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Same thing in Dodge City, KS. Because of all the cattle that get processed there is an inordinate amount of bovine excrement/gas being released. It runs off in to the water supply. Don't you dare drink a fountain soda...N-N-N-NASTY!! Not to mention the air is putrid. You can't tell me that it doesn't have an overall effect on the environment.

    glad you brought that up because a lot of people only focus on chemical, plastics and oil refineries and plants or they focus on coal factories and stuff like that.

    Animal processing, whether it be chicken farms, huge cattle processing plants and other such businesses can have a huge negative impact on the environment.

    These types of companies need to be just as responsible in how they manage their activities as any evil corporate empire pumping out petroleum products.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    I agree that we should take care of the environment but I wouldn't say "outside of the midwest, its been hotter than shit". The whole world on average is having a cooler 2009. Temperatures have fallen for 12 straight years of the high of 1997 yet carbon emissions have increased by 5%. If CO2 causes Global Warming, how in the hell do temperatures decrease since 1997 if the shit that causes the greenhouse effect goes up?

    The fact is we don't exactly know. The earth has been warming and cooling for billions of years without the help of us. I do remember this winter that some scientists said the lack of sun spot activity will create a cooler 2009 for us and this will continue on for awhile. Hmmm who would have thought that this big fusion reactor 93,000,000 miles away from us may have something to do with how hot its going to be. Do you think the sun is more stable than an atomic clock?

    In a few years time people will be looking at Global War....ooops Climate Change like we do now in the 70's about an impending ice age.

    Huh? No we haven't. except for a couple weeks ago where it got over a hundred for a few days it's been really mild. Coldest fucking winter we've had in a hundred years though.
