2012: Hottest year on record in U.S.

Jan 9, 2013 Full story: The Day 20

The numbers are in: 2012, the year of a surreal March heat wave, a severe drought in the Corn Belt and a massive storm that caused broad devastation in the mid-Atlantic states, turns out to have been the hottest year recorded in the contiguous United States.

Beyond the heat, have been other changes in climate. Our Pacific Northwest is such an example. Washington state was the only state in the continental U.S., where temperatures were 'only' marginally higher than normal. Whereas, we had above average quantities of 2012 winter precipitations & mountain snows, normally soggy western Washington went completely dry for 3+mouths during the agricultural growing season. Most farmers don't have watering systems & saw Washington state solid GREEN corn stalks shriveled to solid brown.

Again, with only marginally warmer yearly temperatures, eastern Washington had 4months of no rain, & saw some of their most extensive & long enduring forest fires. There were fires not just at the end of that 4 month period. But so rapidly did the soils, vegetation & trees dry out, that fires began within weeks of the rain stoppages.

This Algore invention "global warming" is just an excuse for socialist world government. Of coure Algore "Mr Worldclass Hypocrite" who flies all over in a large private jet using carbon credits like nobody's business expects to be one of the honchos. And of course Obama expects to be Imam-In-Chief. And of course "Crazy Uncle Joe" Biden expects to be court jester and Obama yesman.

BULLCHIT! Global warming is a big hoax. Geez we sure could use old Algore here right now to warm up Asheville as we hit the teens tonight and tomorrow night. Warmest year in history. Hahahahahaha. BULLSCHIT!

Think he does. Seems like more icons in AGW advocates' favor, lately.

I refrain from humor but I just got funny again. Seriously speaking,

1. Try some yourself and see.

2. You can go up to 3 icons at a time.

3. Some icons are more equal than others :-D [that means deniers go over the existing icons by more judging]

4. Deniers are first trained in icon distribution, it seems. They email each other their tricks. For example, they could have more than one access to Topix such as o'sux at work computers. I think he's a building cleaner or such ;-)[remember they speak better English in Canada]

Yeah, you're right. A few years ago, someone started tinkering with icons & get AGW forum icons to light up like other very popular websites with extraordinary numbers of votes.

Seems that some extra tinkering is going on now.

Some never vote i.e. Bozo.

Then Lessy is absent. Hope he's healthy.

It appears tina and kal are acting passive aggressively. Don't forget the dirt also. And some others.

They follow me with the same icons. I hope they read my posts.

I hope they don't, & stay as stupid as they have elected to be throughout their poorly earned educations.

With March and April temperature reports coming in... it appears that 2013 is likely to be the hottest and driest year on record!

2012 heat in USA was mainly do to La Nina and the inverted Arctic Oscillation. This also explains record COLD in Europe in 2012! Actually tempertaures have dropped slightly in recent years worldwide.

Of course is will be, just look at how warm it was last month where all that snow fell. It's really amazing.
