[L]ong-standing temperature records fell as a wall of heat blanketed the eastern half of the country — Washington, D.C. set a new daily record high of 98°F — busting the old record that dated back to 1895.

Unable to prove that the UK spring is a dry record?
Start another thread, that should do the trick.

It's taken a long time to beat the old record, how unlike Washington DC to wait so long.

Great graphic, FF.

They have empirical evidence on their side; it's going to be hot this summer.

When you have no experimental evidence, it's just a matter of popularity and perception.

Alarmists are getting so desperate to find new records for warming, it's quite sad.

"Events like droughts, wildfires, heat waves and heavy downpours get my short answer. We know they are going to become more frequent, more intense, and last longer. In fact, we can already see this playing out in historical data."

Only one problem with that, Heidi, we all have access to records of those events and they aren't happening more frequently, more intensely or lasting longer.
Maybe she's misreading the data.

Who to believe? A professional climate scientist who studies the data as a job, or somebody making empty claims on the internet?

Take your pick, Heidi is a specialist in her field, whereas those of us with time to check the information from many sources see a bigger picture.
Why should anyone believe you, are you, "A professional climate scientist who studies the data as a job" or just, "somebody making empty claims on the internet?"

BTW: It rained in London today and the weather forecast is for more rain over the next few days, which will blow the chance of the driest UK spring, which has 15 days left to run.

Scientists Identify Human Connection to Precipitation Extremes

With waters finally receding from early 2011’s collection of devastating floods, people in many parts of the world are wondering if the storms and their aftermath are a preview of future extreme weather. Until recently, there’s been little evidence that climate change is responsible for the growing number of intense rainfall events seen in many regions, but new research now shows there is a clear connection between some heavy rainfall events and increasing levels of climate-warming greenhouse gases in the air.

2. Climate changes are underway in the United States and are projected to grow.
Climate-related changes are already observed in the United States and its coastal waters. These include increases in heavy downpours, rising temperature and sea level, rapidly retreating glaciers, thawing permafrost, lengthening growing seasons, lengthening ice-free seasons in the ocean and on lakes and rivers, earlier snowmelt, and alterations in river flows. These changes are projected to grow.(p. 27)

You spend your time reading fossil fuel funded denier web sites, political blogs, ideological thinks tanks and creationist anti-science web pages.

Come off it, Fuggy, you know better than that, but you never miss an opportunity to take a cheap shot.

No warming - to cooling - southern tier of states. Is AGW ignoring us down here? Is Russia warming? Aisia? Forget the "record temps" - What I've been tracking is above average vs below average. Below is winning hands down.

Au contraire.

Read this fresh from Al Gore:

400 ppm May 10, 2013 : 10:25 AM

Yesterday, for the first time in human history, concentrations of carbon dioxide, the primary global warming pollutant, hit 400 parts per million in our planet's atmosphere. This number is a reminder that for the last 150 years -- and especially over the last several decades -- we have been recklessly polluting the protective sheath of atmosphere that surrounds the Earth and protects the conditions that have fostered the flourishing of our civilization. We are altering the composition of our atmosphere at an unprecedented rate. Indeed, every single day we pour an additional 90 million tons of global warming pollution into the sky as if it were an open sewer. As the distinguished climate scientist Jim Hansen has calculated, the accumulated manmade global warming pollution in the atmosphere now traps enough extra heat energy each day to equal the energy that would be released by 400,000 Hiroshima-scale atomic bombs exploding every single day. It's a big planet -- but that is a LOT of energy. And it is having a destructive effect.

Now, more than ever before, we are reaping the consequences of our recklessness. From Superstorm Sandy which crippled New York City and large areas of New Jersey, to a drought which parched more than half of our nation; from a flood that inundated large swaths of Australia to rising seas affecting millions around the world, the reality of the climate crisis is upon us.

Our food systems, our cities, our people and our very way of life developed within a stable range of climatic conditions on Earth. Without immediate and decisive action, these favorable conditions on Earth could become a memory if we continue to make the climate crisis worse day after day after day.

With any great challenge comes great opportunity. We have the rare privilege to rise to an occasion of global magnitude. To do so, our communities, our businesses, our universities, and our governments need to work in harmony to stop the climate crisis. We must summon the very best of the human spirit and draw on our courage, our ingenuity, our intellect, and our determination to confront this crisis. Make no mistake, this crisis will demand no less than our very best. I am optimistic because we have risen to meet the greatest challenges of our past.

So please, take this day and the milestone it represents to reflect on the fragility of our civilization and and the planetary ecosystem on which it depends. Rededicate yourself to the task of saving our future. Talk to your neighbors, call your legislator, let your voice be heard. We must take immediate action to solve this crisis. Not tomorrow, not next week, not next year. Now.

I object to this description of our CO2 emissions for two reasons:

1. You don't pour a gas, you free it.

2. CO2 is odorless and colorless, that's very different from waste in an open sewer.
