It would be good to remove at least part of the 1940s blip, but we are still left with “why the blip”.

    2014 is already the hottest Jan-Feb on record in the US.

      Really? Where? I just paid the largest heating bill in the 14 years I’ve lived in this location. Below zero for the first time since 1980, give or take a year or two. Last year’s final frost was so late my peach blossoms died and also killed off the oak bloom so the tree rats had not one acorn in the fall. Last year had only two crops instead of the usual three, and this year looks to be the same.
