Nope.

Clearwater Beach has been voted best beach in America 3 years in a row. Before that it was St. Petersburg, and Sarasota.

But, yes, they are on the Gulf Coast.

So, what's the correct temperature now?
You DO realise the "little ice age" was not a world wide phenomena, right? Right????

I've been to both Clearwater Beach and Destin a few times each, and I'll argue all day that Destin has a better combination of sand and water. I'd say the sand is basically equal with both, but the Destin water is better.

I'd guess those other places get more votes due to their proximity to larger population centers and having more commercial operations.

BTW, Tampa is definitely a place I'd live.

we are still 10-15'F COOLER than the peak of the last 5 interglacial periods




5000-15000 years left in this interglacial period before the peak and inevitable cooling

The disappearance of Alaskan Glaciers may be fun to watch but are symptoms of a warming climate.
no crap Sherlock, warming happens when you transfer from a glacial period (ice age) to an interglacial period

You don't seem to understand, many liberals believe the climate should become static to accommodate their lifestyles.

The glacial period came to an end 15,000 years ago, more than enough time for all the ice to have melted if that were so. Alaska is now losing 75 billion metric tons of ice to melt per year; a record rate.

No, that's false. Global mean temperature now is nearly as high as it's been for the last five interglacials.

Meh, NOAA is spreading climate porn.

The nine months preceding July were all well below average... one has to wonder why they don't hype that!?
