Here March was the only month that was cooler than usual, every other month was clearly warmer, and August won't be an exception judging from the heat so far

That kind of generalization and head-in-the-sand attitude only serves to brush over small but significant trends, whatever those are. That can't be the goal of scientists. If there is something going on, we need to know it, even if it is unpleasant.

You employ a common misconception. Weather isn't climate.

I agree, and that is the insidiousness of the AGW cult. They are diverting resources from true pollution issues. We should ignore harmless CO2 and focus on harmful pollution.

Ah, the common belief of the ignorant mob and climate change alarmists.

Record cold or hot temperatures in certain areas does not negate that the average temperature is not rising. Global temperature increases have been flat for fifteen years.

But, you knew that.

The last 5 summers have been well below normal temps and the winters have been longer and colder that I can remember in a long time, probably since the 70's have I seen winters like this. We had snow the first weekend of May when I moved my son home from college, 4" of it. That is the first time I've ever seen measurable snow in my life in May.

"Global Warming" is a bunch of baloney. The ice is melting in someplaces and growing in others. Has nothing to do with the temps.

That's because the leftists pushing it found out their predictions and warnings were all flat wrong.

So they applied doublethink and tried to pretend they'd always been warning about some nebulous "climate change", instead of admitting they didn't know what they were talking about.

Climate change is here.
Deny it all you like.
It's always been here. And there.

The climate changes, the oceans change, the continents change. Just when the leftist weirdos get everything perfect in their minds, a gigantic volcano will erupt and put out more greenhouse gasses then humans could ever produce.

Our actions are absolutely insignificant.
