Your link didn't work for me, I'm wondering why not trust the annual precip. measurements ? Hard to say what various counties may be doing that affect the river, I'm sure someone knows, yet that rain gauge wont lie.

It's always been pretty wet in Mississippi (56" a year in my hometown) and it seems to be getting wetter. It seems like we have more nighttime rain now and that we have more deluges.

But I don't know. I could be entirely subjective. I am trying to find historical reports for my location which may only go back to 1942.

gee wizz 'brian', all of the tons of liquid oxygen that nasa stole out of the air without anyones permission, for their space shuttle launches should be considered. but of course, that was for science, so it was ok. rising levels of other gasses were not effected by the removal of billions of tons of oxygen in gas form from the atmosphere that they liquidfied and burned in the space shuttle launches without permission of the worlds people. yep, there is no experimental proof. only in frankinstein movies does science go wrong. they know what they are doing.
Every space launch was based on previous experimental tests; the science of rocketry is more than a thousand years old.

Do you know what the scientific method is?

The "warming" isn't being caused by man...
Man-made CO2 isn't physically capable of absorbing much more than
two-thousandths of the radiated heat (IR) passing upward through the atmosphere.
And, if all of the available heat in that spectrum is indeed being captured by the current CO2 levels before leaving the atmosphere, then adding more CO2 to the atmosphere won't matter a bit.
In short, the laws of physics don't allow CO2 it's currently assumed place as a significant "greenhouse gas" based on present concentrations. The other "greenhouse gases" such as methane, nitrous oxide, tetrafluoromethane, hexafluoroethane, sulfur hexafluoride, trifluoromethane, 1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane, and 1,1-difluoroethane exist only in extraordinarily smaller amounts and aren't even up for serious discussion by any segment of the scientific community. And, since the other components of the atmosphere (oxygen, nitrogen, and water vapor) aren't materially affected by human activity, the "greenhouse effect" is essentially a totally natural phenomenon, unaffected by human activity. We could repeat the spectral analysis and calculations for Oxygen, or O2 ( The percentage of oxygen in the atmosphere remains exactly the same at all heights up to about 85 km, and is about 20.9% by volume ) and Nitrogen (N2) which is the whopper at 78.1%- but we won't. Just look up the atomic absorption spectra for both, and do the math. You'll discover that Oxygen and Nitrogen aren't even "greenhouse gases", so that leaves the principal greenhouse gas... you guessed it.... Water Vapor. Curiously enough, the UN IPCC reports don't even mention water vapor, since it is technically not a "gas" in the atmosphere.
It can safely be ball parked that water vapor as being responsible for more than 95% of all the greenhouse effect, with oxygen and nitrogen playing no role and carbon dioxide being relatively insignificant... particularly the even smaller human-produced part.
Pesky science. How about someone responding with a little bullying. Failing that, perhaps one of you six could offer a few choice opinions to rebuke the facts.

good point 'brian', but this rocketry of space launch was the only one to use liquid oxygen to burn holes through the sky, way funny the same agency sounded the arlarm bells. imagine if you will,'brian',huge machines, set up to collect and liquidify, oxygen, to burn away. millions of tons of oxygen. for science? did they ask you if they could take your oxygen? did they ask anyone? did burning holes through the sky with the stolen worlds supply of oxygen benefit anyone? was the scientific method even used in the theft of the worlds oxygen? gee wizz.

Yeah, space cadet, it is easy for you to say that.
It seems impossible for you to do though.

It was also easy for you to claim Mann won a Nobel, but it was pretty difficult for you to prove that canard, too!

What do you know in science? Not a morsel, looking at your history here.

As to Professor Mann he's still a nobel-winning scientist as I posted and explained how many times before. But you change my words and don't comprehend English language. Like you did again. Aren't you lovely?

Hence, contrary to your objection with "never" you are proven to be a 'serial sensationalist.'

Scientists Confirm World's Oldest Creature...But Kill it Determining Its Age
by JON DAVID KAHN 14 Nov 2013, 6:09 AM PDT
In 2006, climate change experts from Bangor University in north Wales found a very special clam while dredging the seabeds of Iceland. At that time scientists counted the rings on the inside shell to determine that the clam was the ripe old age of 405. Unfortunately, by opening the clam which scientists refer to as "Ming," they killed it instantly....

Gawd! You're thick.

No he's not.

No matter how many times you say so, he isn't.

But go ahead, prove it.

These science deniers have hysteria over any nobel prize. They go nuts over Al Gore's, the IPCC's [not a person but an organization representing contributors such as Professor Mann] due to their own denier ideology.

Of course, they could never contribute to such an endeavour.

Warmists are such lousy liars.

Mann didn't win a nobel. No matter how many times you say it, that won't change.

Al Gore is a global warming hypocrite. Warmists cannot admit that simple FACT.

But they do like to spin off on all kinds of "jealousy", "ant-science" screeds, treating skeptics of AGW as heretics.

And thereby giving credence to the 'global warming religion' argument.

Enjoy your hypocrisy.

WASHINGTON (AP) Greenhouse gases are making the world's oceans hot, sour and breathless, and the way those changes work together is creating a grimmer outlook for global waters, according to a new report Wednesday from 540 international scientists.

The world's oceans are getting more acidic at an unprecedented rate, faster than at any time in the past 300 million years, the report said. But it's how this interacts with other global warming impacts to waters that scientists say is getting them even more worried.

Scientists already had calculated how the oceans had become 26 percent more acidic since the 1880s because of the increased carbon in the water. They also previously had measured how the world's oceans had warmed because of carbon dioxide from the burning of coal, oil and gas. And they've observed that at different depths the oceans were moving less oxygen around because of the increased heat.

But together "they actually amplify each other," said report co-author Ulf Riebesell, a biochemist at the Geomar Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research in Germany. He said scientists are increasingly referring to the ocean's future prospects as "hot, sour and breathless."

The 26-page report released by the United Nations and several scientific research organizations brings together the latest ocean science on climate change, stemming from a major conference of ocean scientists last year.
