A while back this blog was trolled by another Fox-watcher who thinks that just because some parts of North America and Europe are going through a cold winter, there’s no longer any global warming. I’ve stopped posting his comments – sent his latest one straight to trash unread and permanently blocked him – because I got tired of reading his personal attacks.
But if you’re still shivering like we are through this winter, it’s not a sign the global warming trend has reversed and is now cooling.
If you haven’t the 9 minutes to watch this video which explains why, here are a few facts:
- August 2009 was the second-warmest on record.
- June – August 2009 ocean temperatures the warmest ever.
- Canada, North Africa, the Mediterranean and southwest Asia are going through above-average temperatures between 5 and 10 degrees C.
- The number of record high days has been increasing over the past few decades, the number of record low days decreasing.
