Guess: When Was the Last Time that the Globe Had a Month Cooler than the 1951-1980 Average? What Are the Chances of That?

There Is No Global Warming, screams a NewsMax headline yesterday.

No Global Warming? Let’s play make-a-guess using NASA’s GISS temperature data dating from January 1880 to May 2015 to test that assertion.

Then maybe to top it off, we could exchange climate change reports. You […]

“What Global Warming?” asks North Country New York. This Global Warming, answers NASA.

In a February 12 2015 letter to the editor of New York State’s North Country Now, an anonymous reader asks, “What Global Warming? Whatever happened to global warming? I feel short changed!”

You see, it’s been cold lately. How could that be if we’re experiencing global warming?

There are two answers to that question. The […]

Despite the Hottest Year on Record, Global Warming Apologist Still Cries “No Warming”

“There has been essentially no global warming since 1998.” — S. Fred. Singer, December 29 2014

“Bullshit.” — NASA

Even S. Fred Singer, famous for his stretching of data to deny global warming, is having a hard time using 1998 any more; he has to insert the modifier “essentially” to his “no global warming” […]

As Deniers Cry “Global Cooling,” the Globe Warms in Autumn 2014

At the WyoSkeptic blog, a new post has been placed in the “global cooling” category, a category that contains dozens of entries. WyoSkeptic’s latest post “shows” that global warming cannot be happening because the town of Gillette, Wyoming shows little change from 1978-2014.

While Vicky Hartzler Fiddles, the Globe Burns: October 2014 was Hottest on Record

On November 2014, Republican member of Congress and global warming denier Vicky Hartzler noticed it was cold. This, she decided, was proof enough to ridicule the idea of global warming. So she took to Twitter:

 

Rep. Hartzler is in her 54th year on Earth. Someone so well-experienced with the seasons really should have […]
