If only scientists had warned us:

US Headed For The Coldest Spring On Record | Real Science

At the two-thirds mark for meteorological spring, 2013 was the second coldest spring on record – slightly warmer than 1975.

Darn facts.

Do yourself a favour and don't use that kinda stuff for an argument. It makes you 'look' foolish and like you don't know what you're talking about

Hey guys, look at my graph where I cherry picked temperatures in the most moderate months of the year to prove how global warming isn't happening.

Wow, this wasn't very difficult to find

For those who don't want to click (or if you're Indy, don't want to know), it was 2012.

I think we can all agree that it's been a crappy spring.

Not if you live in Texas. Cooler than normal makes this place somewhat livable.

That's still some drought you've got going on.

Weirdly, I really like a lot about Texas. I've even been west of Waco in mid-July and really didn't hate it at all. Fascinating landscape.

Dallas kind of sucks though.

The drought it awful. Our water supply in Austin is at 40% and falling.

There's much to like. The landscape west of I-35 can be really pretty. Austin is a great city. San Antonio's not bad. Houston has its merits. D/FW is a great airport.

Dallas is not my favorite place. I used almost used the word "loathsome", but that seemed slightly too harsh.

Our summers are utterly miserable.

Heard last night during the Sox game that it was 40 something degrees for the Rangers game last night. The announcers were happy to hear it because they're headed there. You could be in Minnesota or Colorado and still be getting six inches plus of snow. It's been a crappy spring here, it's finally been warm enough lately to get outside. Nice stretch of weather the past week or so, and it's supposed to continue at least through Tuesday.

I think most experts might agree that climate change brings extremes, not just warmth. It was 80 in Denver Monday, then Wed it was 30 and they got snow. That's just insane.

Meanwhile in California.

Wildfire on California coast: On Day 2, more Santa Ana winds (+video) - CSMonitor.com

It's 93 in LA today and our winter was extremely warm and dry. Fire season is going to be bad.

Darn facts.
As horrible a film as "The Day After Tomorrow" was. It actually got one thing right. Global warming is expected to cause the north east to be colder. The melting of the polar ice caps wreaks havoc with the major ocean currents due to the desalinization of the ocean. The reason that the Northeast has a relatively moderate climate for it's latitude is because of the Gulf Stream. That current brings warm water up the coast, and it's why the Atlantic is so warm. If that current is weakened, the East Coast gets cold.

Now I'm not saying the Cold spring on the East Coast is due to that, but I wanted to show that Climate Change doesn't just mean warmer temps. Climate science is extraordinarily complex, so just posting random temps to refute what the vast majority of the scientific community is saying is like posting the winner of a lottery while saying that it's proof that anyone can make money in a lottery.

This week was one of the craziest I can remember. 85 degrees on Tuesday, playing golf.

Thursday comes around and it's 33 degrees and a blizzard.

Seems like its about over. Back to 60s tomorrow.
