The facts are inconvient.
The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration said Wednesday that last year was tied as the planet's hottest on record.
Surface temperatures in 2010 were tied with 2005: both years, up approximately 1.12 degrees Fahrenheit over the 20th century's average.
Surface temperatures for the Earth's oceans were also up by 0.88 degrees Fahrenheit in 2010, once again tying with 2005, this time for the third warmest year on record.*****They also cited the Global Historical Climatology Network, which found that 2010 was also the wettest year on record. They added that the Pacific ocean saw fewer hurricanes than any year since the mid-1960s, while the Atlantic ocean had an "extremely active" year with 19 different named storms.
& the ReThug/Palin noise machine is out in full throat. Get a load of this moron:
I am over rawstory,com. Truth is one thing, agendized bullshit (Al Goreism) is completely another. If you are stupid or uninformed enough to buy into this shit please get smarter or get the fuck off my planet.
Nice, eh? I agree with a commenter down the line & wonder whether this moron was homeschooled in a John Haggee run household. Jeez Louise. Oh year, Al Gore should have been President of these United States & I don't think he is, presently, fat.
