July 30, 2013


Few wingnut tweets are stupider than the tired "it's cool in my neighborhood today, so global warming is bogus" variety.

For those of us in the reality-based community:

According to NOAA scientists, the globally averaged temperature for June 2013 tied with 2006 as the fifth warmest June since record keeping began in 1880. It also marked the 37th consecutive June and 340th consecutive month (more than 28 years) with a global temperature above the 20th century average.

And here's the best part.

Washington, D.C.'s average mean temperature for the month of July 2013 has been 82 degrees -- a full two degrees higher than the city's historical average.

Most people are ashamed of their own ignorance. Conservatives wallow in it.

Can you help us out?
