While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    NOT A HOAX

    2012 was hottest year on record for Lower 48 states; The average temperature was 3.3 degrees higher than in the 20th century, NOAA says, bolstering indications that global warming is linked to extreme weather events.

    Neela Bannerjee, January 8, 2013 (LA Times)

    “Last year was the hottest year on record for the contiguous 48 states, marked by near-record numbers of extreme weather events such as drought, wildfire, tornadoes and storms, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

    “In its annual report, State of the Climate, NOAA reported that the average annual temperature was 55.3 degrees — 3.3 degrees greater than the average temperature for the 20th century. It was also a full degree higher than the previous record-high temperature, set in 1998 — the biggest margin between two record-high temperatures to date.”

    “The report [also] confirmed…that extreme weather events are becoming more common. The only year when there were more extreme weather events was 1998, largely because a greater number of tropical cyclones made landfall…In 2012, the Upper Midwest was hit with floods, the mid-Atlantic with sudden summertime storms, the West with wildfire and the Northeast with Hurricane Sandy, among many other events. Most of the country even now remains in the grip of drought…For years, climatologists have been reluctant to draw a line from climate change to specific weather events, and the NOAA authors of the report were cautious…But a growing body of research has begun to indicate that climate change creates conditions for the kinds of temperatures and events the United States experienced last year…

    “Last year follows a decade that was the hottest since temperature recording began…Since 1895, as industrialization spread and the world began to burn more carbon-based fuels, the average temperature of the Lower 48 states has risen 0.13 of a degree each decade…2012 was the eighth-hottest year on record around the world…[T]here were 356 record-high temperatures recorded around the country, and only four record lows, all in Hawaii. Three or four decades ago, the numbers of record highs and record lows were far more similar…”
