    Yet, all we here are scare stories about the heat wave in the Southwest. Imagine that: a heat wave during the summer! How odd. Of course, what the 72-point headlines fail to mention is the fact the same region has experienced higher temperatures many times before. Death Valley, for example, is no where close to breaking the 134°F (56.7 °C) record set on July 13, 1913.

    All the fanfare is simply another indication of the alarmist crowd’s growing desperation. They want to force taxpayers to pony up more of their hard-earned money to fight a battle against an imaginary global warming bogeyman concocted in the digital innards of their general circulation models. They are a greedy bunch of charlatans posing as “scientists.”

    how can it be a record? it is lower than the mean, but that’s all the graph shows.

    • All previous years are accessible from the link. If you haven’t been following the conversation you can check for yourself.

        I believe you, I didn’t take the time to look. evidently the spread must be very small b/c the record is so close to the mean.

        • The temperature spread is deceptive. The ice buffers the temperature through latent heat of melting. This year there is no melting north of 80N so far, indicating that the amount of heat energy is much less than normal.

        • What a coincidence, today is the first day this year that Buoy 2013C:
          has reported surface melt. It is located at 82.63 N, 62.38 W

          Current Ice Observations (06/30/2013)

          Snow depth : 0 cm
          Ice thickness : 340 cm
          Since Deployment (05/10/2013)
          Snow depth at melt onset: 8 cm
          Snow melt: 7 cm (Began 06/13/2013)
          Ice surface melt: 6 cm (Began 06/29/2013)

          The temperatures are been as high as five degrees C this week

          In all previous years (since 1958) the present curve (red) would have reached the green curve (climate models average), but in this graph we’re nearly 1 full degree below the average and nearly half way through the top part of the curve already.
          I believe this clearly shows how fast the temperature in the Arctic can react to solar radiations. The AMO is showing also a decline trend.
          Really impressive.

        “I believe this clearly shows how fast the temperature in the Arctic can react to solar radiations.”
        That’s fascinating, would you please explain your hypothesis regarding Arctic temperature and “solar radiations”
        What is your prediction regarding this years minimum Arctic sea ice volume and extent, , a rough ball park figure is fine for both.
        I am always interesting in learning the opinion of others
        Thank you

    • Richard, I had just posted a reply to your question …lol

    It don’t cease to amaze me how well the Arctic region is doing this year, beyond my best expectations so far. 🙂

    The rare but always impressive present-past-perfect hybrid tense.
