Hot Temperatures in January - Yes, But Let's Not Blame Global Warming CO2 Emissions

February 07, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 116

One thing that has always fascinated me is that people have such a short memory when it comes to the weather. Indeed, I live in one of the hottest cities in the United States during the summer time, and each year people swear that it must be global warming because it is so hot out. That's utterly ridiculous, and actually in the last decade the temperatures have not been all that hot, except for just a couple of years. Now then, I'd like to talk about this for a moment if you have the time.

There was an interesting piece on MSN recently which discussed the warm temperatures in January of 2012 titled; "Was January warmest on record in US? The answer is..." posted to the website on February 7, 2012. The article had a very cool little graphic with it showing most of the Midwest with above normal temps, however much of the rest of the country at or about normal with a slight increase with Florida and Washington state at normal or slightly below. No state was at a record level.

Okay so, why the warm temps? Is it the Mayan end of the world calendar just warming up? Is it the ever feared evil "Global Warming" caused by mankind's output of CO2? No, none of that, but I can tell you that there were two very large solar flares in January, one was a near record X-flare, could that have something to do with a nice little heat wave? Perhaps, and it is much more likely than the global warming theory if you ask me.

Trust me, this isn't the end of the world and by the end of the first week in February 2012 we saw this headline as well; "Storm blankets Nebraska after pummeling Colorado - Wet snow downs power lines, knocks out power to thousands," basically giving back any perceived anomaly or short heat-wave cycle encountered. It's just the weather, so perhaps we ought to call it what it is, and stop this ever incessant doom and gloom, fatalistic, 2012 Mayan Calendar or Global Warming motif - there is nothing to it folks.

At some point the folks who have taken global warming as some sort of a religion, have to step back and realize that every single event that has to do with the weather in the news does not indicate, or prove their theory. Using the weather as some sort of a compelling argument is utterly ridiculous. The Earth's climate goes in cycles, and changes, as a matter fact the only constant we know for sure is that there are ice ages and warming periods. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on.
