2012 Was Hottest Year Evah!!!!! For 2% Of The World’s Surface

Know what this proves? That 2012 was hot in the continental US. What it doesn’t prove is anthropogenic causation. But, hey, it gets all the Warmists out and about spreading awareness as they drive to demonstrations in their fossil fueled vehicles

Not Even Close: 2012 Was Hottest Ever in U.S.

What they’re forgetting is that the study only encompasses the lower 48. Alaska has been cooling. Which isn’t proof of a coming ice age, either. Nor is it proof that “climate change” caused by mankind is causing cooling.

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

How hot was it? The temperature differences between years are usually measured in fractions of a degree, but last year’s 55.3 degree average demolished the previous record, set in 1998, by a full degree Fahrenheit.

Still not as warm as previous warm periods.

Scientists said that natural variability almost certainly played a role in last year’s extreme heat and drought. But many of them expressed doubt that such a striking new record would have been set without the backdrop of global warming caused by the human release of greenhouse gases. And they warned that 2012 was probably a foretaste of things to come, as continuing warming makes heat extremes more likely.

In other words, they know the warmth was primarily natural, but, hey, they have to keep the federal funding gravy train going, so they’ll make predictions with no facts.

The NY Times also attempts to blame weather events, which always happen, on the warming. Alas, they avoid mentioning that tornado strikes were at record lows, as were hurricane and tropical storm system strikes on the lower 48. And while the Times did mention all the heat records, 2012 didn’t even make the top 10 of years that saw records broken. And, of course, it’s easy to make the claim of being the hottest ever when the temperature data is being changed to match the meme.

But, what about the rest of the world? (via Climate Depot)

So, when we look at the global temperatures, we see that most of the rest of the world is experiencing cooling temps. This doesn’t necessarily denote a coming ice age, or even a cool period. It could, but time will tell. But, when the majority of the world cooled despite rising CO2 levels, one has to wonder what’s going on, and what really drives climate in terms of temperature.

Oh, and if believers in “climate change” are really concerned, they might actually make their own lives “carbon neutral.”

    Okay, don’t post my post.
    See if I give a rat’s ass.

    Teach I think that globally 2012 will be one of the top 10 hottest years out of the last century. I do not think that it will be as hot as 2010 which was a close second to the hottest year ever, so I guess you could say it was cooling. And going carbon neutral? Teach you demand PERFECTION as the litmus test for concern ? Anything less than carbon neutral means that they are really a non believer ? Do you hold yourself to standards of perfection in all things also? The US Navy believes in climate change should they also make themselves carbon neutral? Is that what you are looking for ?

  4. Anne says:

    Can’t argue with that. LOL

    (WTF did he just say?)

    We tend to ignore our troll. he is incapable of individual coherent thought beyond hating jews, women, and freedom.

    When you factor out all the errors and intentional misleadings, July 2012 is still under 1936 and 1998.

    And, if you want to talk about misleading.. we can say that July 2012 is 5 degrees warmer than the 72F experienced in 1945. Or, the 71.8F experienced in 1910 or 1911.

    When you can make up any data you want, you can make any claim you want.

    However, it is still not science.

  6. John has just given us his Official Talking Points. Notice how he fails to mention how he’s made his own life carbon neutral.

    And, John, we all believe in climate change. The climate has always changed over the past 4.5 billion years. To think you can pass laws to control the weather is stupid.

    You’re right, GB, it’s not science. We both know that Warmists are pushing fascism, not science.

    Badda-Bing! Case closed.

    that’s why we love our Teach. he’s smart like that.

  9. Anne says:

    Hey, for a reactionary,
    you’re pretty smart, too.

  10. john says:

    that record goes back on 3 years !! what a joke. Oh and Teach 2012 was also the hottest year on record EVAH for Australia.How about showing the record for the last 100 or 150 ?
    And no I have not achieved the perfection of being carbon neutral. Perfection that is a tuff one. But also very few of the 80% of Americans who believe in global climate change are carbon neutral, that is a goal few will be able to reach. I am an imperfect human trying to better. Climate truthers are the cult now down to only 20% of all Americans.Americans are believing. Some still believe that there is a giant conspiracy about climate change, one so vast taht only a small percentage of humans can see or comprehend the conspiracy. Science and reality and their own eyes can see that the climate is changing quickly. Didn’t happen that fast in my father’s generation. Americans can esily see that 2012 was too hot. But the climate truthers will still go on denying that the planet is getting warmer. teach will post THERE WAS RECORD SNOW COVER ON NEW YEARS DAY, as if that somehow nullifies the fact taht 2012 was the hottest one ever for the continental USA. The uber right is now the anti science wing of the GOP. The US NAvy believes in climate change, should they be classed as “warmists” ? My talking points are the consensus of science.

    So, you now moved on from pure willful ignorance to lying?

  12. Trish says:

    I think Johnny wants to grow up to be a sailor, with all his talk about how the Navy believes in climate change. He says it almost EVRY single time he uses his tired old talking points. I just know he will look great in bell bottoms…

    Oh and by the way Johnny, we all believe in climate change! It happens…even without one finger of help from humans.

  13. Gumball_Brains says:

    Wait? You mean we haven’t always been this great and glorious paradise in terms of temperature, air quality, air type, and precipitation?

    What is even more confusing, is places where there isn’t a human presence, those planets have HELLACIOUS environments already. They are either frozen solid, totally poison gas, no atmosphere at all, or at near melting point.

    Heck, there are some planets where the rain is Sulfuric and\or Hydrochloric Acid. And we haven’t burned built one coal-burning electrical generation plant there yet.
