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.
The last time (4 months ago) I was at the Redneck Riviera, it still looked like this:

Check your sources...

June...was the hottest month ever recorded, but July was hotter...

May... 1.73 degrees above average.

April 2019 marks the 412th consecutive month and the 43rd consecutive April with temperatures, above the 20th century average.

An Idiocracy indeed.

It does in New Orleans. And it's NOT dry heat!

140 years of partially recorded climate data is not "long-term."

You were not recording temperatures in the Arctic or Antarctic 140 years ago, just as you were not recording temperatures in sub-Saharan Africa and large swaths of South America, Central Asia, Eastern Asia and Southeastern Asia.

It hasn't broken those records yet. The record for the previous Inter-Glacial Period isn't even close to being broken yet.

The Greenland Ice Sheet always melts during Inter-Glacial Periods. To suggest that it should not is absurd and contrary to scientific data.

Sea levels always rise 3 meters to 14 meters during an Inter-Glacial Period. To suggest that it should not is just as preposterous and contrary to scientific data.

So for you, long term means 0.0000031% of Earth's history?

Unfortunately in this country, we continue to pretend that it's just a sign that Jesus is coming back soon and won't even consider the possibility that human destruction of the environment and carbon pollution may be a contributing factor. Sad.

Why not go to a completely independent source. The Japan Meteorological Agency. Different data source, same results, no Al Gore involved.

Go ahead...check them out for yourself. Go for it!
