If It’s “Global Warming”, Why Do Some States Warm Faster Than Others?

The NY Times ran a story yesterday meant to scare everyone and highlight the coming doom….sometime down the road when we’ll all have forgotten about this “climate change” hoax idiocy

If those New England seasons feel far warmer these days than they were 20 years ago, it’s because they are. So are Florida’s, Arizona’s, and Washington State’s.

A new interactive map released by the group Climate Central summarizes the average temperatures of each of the 48 contiguous United States for the last 100 years. By clicking across the country (try it on the map above), you can see that lately, temperatures have been trending up no matter where you live.

But if you look closely, the story is more complicated than a general upswing in temperatures. Some states are warming more quickly than others. And the rate at which they’re warming depends on what time span you’re looking at.

It begs the question “why do some warm faster than others?” Air pollution and deforestation are thrown in the mix, but really, no scientific answers are offered. Here’s the trend since the 1970’s

Everybody panic!!!!! Oh, wait, what’s this

Essentially, almost every state shows .2 degrees Fahrenheit or less warming since 1912. A good chunk show no warming. Are we really supposed to freak out and change our economies and lives, skyrocket our energy and food prices, install a cap and trade system, and give up even more of our money and freedom to the Central Government over point frigging 2 degrees warming over 100 years?

And let’s not forget that the trend has been mostly flatlined since the end of the last big El Nino year of 1998. Despite rising CO2.

    Despite the claims that the science of climate is well understood, the fact that they cannot explain the reasons why some states warm faster or slower than others demonstrates that they really don’t have a clue. The state of NY is a left leaning state, Mayor Bloomburg is a far left mayor, and the population of NYC is left leaning as well. Thus the NY Times leans to the left on most topics.

  2. And therein lies the problem: they just don’t know. Hey, maybe someone will release a rock solid study which will 100% link at least 80% of the global warming to Mankind and fossil fuels, and it will be irrefutable, and the data will be an open book and replicable, and computer models will not be involved. Could happen. Probably not.

    It might be nice to look at the temperature scale and ask, is this significant data? I suspect that the P valve is not relevant.

    Well at least even the skeptics are admitting that it IS getting warmer, well except for those that are still predicting a new ice age to begin in 2012. As for the “rock solid study showing mankind responsible for 80%” well the 97% of scientists who DO believe in global warming do realize that there are multiple factors involved. It will be interesting to see what happens when the Sun leaves its current decade long “dim” stage.
