    In July 2012, my daughter and I drove through Chicago on our way to Mount Rushmore and Yellowstone, making it to Janesville, Wisconsin the first day. The temperatures were in the high 30Cs to low 40Cs. The next morning, the Madison newspaper noted that the city had broken the high temperature record that held since 1911. As we drove westward the temperature dropped till it was in the low 20Cs in South Dakota. Also evidence of more rain with crops looking greener as we made our way to Rapid City. So climate is like a yo yo and even varies across the continent.

    That’s nothing. The border guards at Port Huron, Michigan stops us at the border, saying we set off their radiation detector. They ripped everything out of the car and questionsed us and run a geiger counter up and down us. Nothing! Sorry, it was an equipment failure.

    They treated us very nicely, and it was amazing how they neatly put everything back in the car.

    Have to wonder just how much the Great Lakes warmed up this summer.

    Anyone know where that data can be found?

    I just heard ABC news on talk radio tell me that this is the hottest summer on record with the most extreme weather.

      Not here in Phoenix, America’s most unsustainable city. Had a Bar-B-Que this afternoon – high of 95 F. Unheard of cool weather. All summer has been mild.

    re Global Warming debate:
    “…it’s a very straightforward battle between, on the one hand a bunch of lying, greedy shysters, fanatical, misanthropic, anti-capitalist eco-loons, bent, grant-troughing scientists, grubby politicians and despicable rent-seeking millionaires and billionaires; and on the other a handful of brave, honest, rigorous, seekers-after-truth.”

      Though I think James pulled his punches on the adjectives a mite. I might not have been so kind.

      I am looking forward to Tobacco-Team-Mikey-Mann’s testimony as Steyn seems determined to take it all the way through a trial now.

      I do wonder if there is any way to discover who is bankrolling Mann’s Tobacco-team-lawyers? That would tell the world much.

    Yesterday afternoon as I was driving around Yuma, the highest reading in my car was 101 degrees. In 20 minutes it dropped to 73 degrees and did not get back to 90 for the day because a cold, rainy, front came through. This morning when I got up at 6:30 it was 71. Today it may reach 95 degrees.

    Meanwhile, the weather underground site said it reached 103 yesterday at the airport. In the record high section the site claims it was 104 degrees. I’m starting to distrust the weather record there, considering Masters’s background.


    Looks like solar cycle 24 (now at the peak) is vastly weaker than 23 (peak 2002) or 22 (peak 1991).

    It’s the cause of the pause. Get ready for a Big Chill.
