Just The Facts

After the Minneapolis Metrodome roof collapsed (again) under 17 inches of snow, there was the usual clueless cackling among the global warming deniers, with hate radio buffoon Boo Hoo the Hoot Beck in the lead. Strange that you never hear a peep out of them when we have record high temperatures, as we did last summer. Here's an excerpt from the October 2010 report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration:
"The combined global average land and ocean surface temperature for the January–October period tied with 1998 as the warmest such period on record. This value is 0.63°C (1.13°F) above the 20th century average. Separately, the average worldwide land surface temperature ranked as the second warmest January–October on record, behind 2007. The worldwide average ocean surface temperature tied with 2003 also as the second warmest such period on record, behind 1998."
While they may not be exposed for their ignorance and dishonesty during their lifetimes, history will surely look upon the wingnut deniers as environmental criminals.
