“Over 2000 cold and snow records set in the USA this past week“ (2013-12-13). Anthony Watts, “citizen-scientist”, discovers that Global Warming is a lie! Why? Well because this week the
world continental USA was (mostly) cold! There were 2000(ish) cold and snow records set! Never mind the 98 high temperature records. Or that only about half the “cold” records were really low max. temps. Or that the conflated snow records are really signs that the cold air has remained warm enough to hold the moisture needed to produce high snow falls.
After all each time the weather is sort-of cold anywhere its conclusive, incontrovertible, permanent, proof that there never was any Global Warming and that furthermore Global Warming has now stopped.
Of course any time it’s hot it’s just natural fluctuation that doesn’t mean anything, ever. Global Warming – denied! Thus speaketh Anthony Watts.
Buried in Anthony’s vaguely attributed info-graphic is the more honest comparison;
in the last week there 1234 low max. temp records set and 98 high max. temp records set. Yep, it’s been a cold week in many places the US, but not everywhere.
Anthony Watts hovers over weather reports like a sullen vulture, never missing a chance to trumpet cold weather as evidence against our overheating climate. In the comments the
dumb-asses wise heads bob along as instructed.
