Hot yearWhile BP destroys the Gulf of Mexico, the planet is still getting hotter, as reported by Lulu Liu in Heat breaking records across the globe -- but not in Sacramento 07/27/2010:
Scientists at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies reported recently that the average global temperature was higher over the past 12 months than during any other 12-month period in history. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has released corroborating data, adding that the past four months, including June, have each individually been the hottest on record as well.But there is at least one exception somewhere in the world:
The global trend, however, has eluded the Central Valley, where abnormally low temperatures through May have stunted agriculture but granted a few pleasant extra weeks of spring.So, by today's Republican/climate-change-denier reasoning, global warming must be a lie made up by Al Gore.
