    Lubbock area, as well as points west and north, are experiencing another late-season hard freeze. As of 6:30 AM the Lubbock airport is reporting a minimum temperature of 26°. Prior to today the April 19 record low was 31° in 1922 and 1920. Besides a record low, it is now the coldest temperature this late in the season on record for Lubbock. Lubbock climate records date from 1911.

      …but but but…Katherine -say it ain’t so-Hayhoe says you’re boiling! Don’t you feel boiled? Not even a little bit?

    • Andy DC says:

      Dr. Hayhoe will no doubt elucidate that the record cold in Lubbock is just another example of a warming planet loading the dice for extreme weather. The only problem is that people don’t seem to be buying the latest brand of snake oil that she is selling.

    Of course the Warmist scientists and their Green eco-loon allies will blame this spring’s cold weather on their favorite bogeyman — “climate change” — conveniently glossing over the fact that the earth’s climate has been changing for billions of years. They can’t blame global warming anymore, because the planet stopped warming at least 16 years ago (longer if you use RSS and UAH satellite data).

    The global warming scare should have died long ago, but it’s been kept on life support by big money from the government and private foundations and by corrupt politicians who see it as a way to raise energy taxes. The good news is that the European Union’s carbon trading market has collapsed, and the Warmist zealots are in full retreat. Their runaway-warming scare (the product of manipulated climate models) has proven to be a colossal scam.

    Once again we are 25 degrees (F) below normal. Record low in tonight’s forecast.

  5. Lance says:

    Adjustments will be made…this ‘weather’ cannot exist, and will be modified into climate

  6. Don’t worry, they will adjust the temperature upwards so that we have the hottest spring ever!

  7. philjourdan says:

    Damn! I was just getting use to the spring temperatures!

    The problem with AGW is it keeps breaking its promise!

  8. tckev says:

    Averaged over the last 20 years it’s nothing. Look if you had kept some of the warmth from earlier years, instead of letting it wastefully escape to heat up the planet, you could warm yourself with it now.
    And that is how practically useless all the homogenizing and averaging of temperatures are in order to reach a global hypothetical ‘normal’.

    Steven,

    Stop reveling and basking in the truth!

    Appell, T.O.O., Gina, mog would appreciate a little false humilty.

  11. Look at the bright side, California the home of US based global warming activism is enjoying the warmest temperatures.

  12. Record breaking cold and hot temperatures always happen proving climate changing is cyclical in nature. Russia just had its coldest winter in over 70 years and much of Europe had a prolonged freezing winter. Global warming? No, but some of them believe it’s Global Freezing.
