I guess the shock value of "Global Warming" has outlived it's usefulness, especially when one considers the "globe" isn't warming.
Typically stupid statement from a typical stupid person.

2012 was the warmest year on record, nationwide.

Stay stupid. We need morons like you to laugh at.

----------

"""2012 marks the warmest year on record for the contiguous U.S., with the year consisting of a record warm spring, the second warmest summer, the fourth warmest winter, and a warmer than average autumn," Jake Crouch, a climate scientist at the National Climatic Data Center at the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), said in a press conference Tuesday.

According to a new NOAA report, the average temperature for the lower 48 states in 2012 was 55.3 degrees Fahrenheit (13 degrees Celsius), which is higher than the previous 1998 record by one degree Fahrenheit (0.6 degree Celsius).

A single degree difference might not seem like much, but it is an unusually large margin, scientists say. Annual temperature records typically differ by just tenths of a degree Fahrenheit.

"That is quite a bit for a whole year averaged over the whole country," said Anthony Barnston, chief forecaster at Columbia University's International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI), who was not involved in the study.

2012: An Odd Year

To put that difference in perspective, said NOAA's Crouch, consider that the entire range of temperature increase between the coldest year on record, which occurred in 1917, and the previous hottest year in 1998 was just 4.2 degrees Fahrenheit (2.3 degrees Celsius).

"2012 is now more than one degree above the top of that. So we're talking about well above the pack in terms of all the years we have data for the U.S.," he added.

2012 was also the 15th driest year on record for the nation: The average precipitation total for the contiguous U.S. was 26.57 inches (67.5 centimeters), 2.57 inches (6.5 centimeters) below average.""

Most Americans agree that our weather patterns, drought, etc., are caused by climate change, just as all leading scientists say.

Only the brain dead Repugnants believe otherwise, and they're controlled by Corporate interests.

100 million huh? You want to rethink that number? Anyone else onboard with this?

I was merely pointing out how things have improved under Obama, you dummies seem to forget just how bad everything collapsed under Bush in 2008.

I can continually sulk about how badly Bush left us if you prefer.

Ok, now you're just being silly.
An intelligent person who disagreed would offer data to support his views.

All you offer is stupid comments. Homer was right, you're just ignorant.

Proof again that you're a nitwit.

Not that we needed it. You prove it daily.

Walmart is a criminal enterprise. See the disaster in Bangladesh for proof. They're starving there, too, but Walmart exploits them anyway.

You get dumber by the day.

I have a sizable pension and income from working in Connecticut. My plan is in about a decade or so, to take my Yankee money and bring it with me to the south where the people are much wiser and nicer. We already lost a congressional seat in Connecticut last cencus and I'm sure there are other people that think like I do. Why should I stay with a bunch of idiot Democrats who are irresponsible? South Carolina sounds like a great place to live. Maybe the Charleston area or a mountain lake home.
No liberals/socialist DemocRATS! Hurraaayyy!!!
Looking forward to it!
By the way, so many people moved out of your libtard state, you LOST TWO (2) seats, idiot.

He's been elected President twice. Proving that only nitwits care about the 'records'. I'm happy he can piss you off so easily!!

Other than hateful racists like you and Carol, nobody cares. If they did, he wouldn't have been elected nor re-elected.

Anyone want to bet the Democrat controlled states lose more people and congressional seats next Census?

Homer is worried about Walmart. Normal people want to leave Homer's state altogether. Eventually, the Democrats will resort to cannibalism.

Liberalism is a mental disorder.

Aunt Bettie Lou, "But before we even had time to regroup and rethink our priorities, we got Obamacare. We got bigger government. We got a "vision" from one man who wants to radicalize this nation beyond recognition." Don't even try and 'rewrite history ', history won't allow it. Obamacare was paid for and did not increase the national debt even one dime(actually Obamacare has reduced the national deficit by millions of dollars so far; under Obama we actually got a smaller, more efficient Federal government--less public sector employees and more private sector jobs then in Bush W's entire eight years of bigger growth in government and expenditures with less efficiency, and Obama's 'vision' harks back to the days of Rutherford B . Hayes, Eugene Debs, and the Prairie Populists --see Obama's Kansas speech-- Check this out: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/07/us/politics...
