Shorter Martin Cothran: More evidence for Global Warming:

English winters are cold and snowy, therefore Al Gore is fat global warming is a hoax.

Outside the fictional world of Martin Cothran – where Lost Cause mythology counts as history, as does Noah’s Ark – scientifically literate folks know that 2010 is shaping up to be the warmest year on record.

For context, here’s the 12-month moving average of global temperatures as of last June:

Note that the last measurement is the warmest 12-month average temperature in recorded history.

    Rosenau,

    Anthropogenic Global Warming is a transparent fraud. Your “data” is mostly fabricated. (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/columnists/christopherbooker/8211948/Its-the-hottest-year-on-record-as-long-as-you-dont-take-its-temperature.html). We’ve been through this crap before: eugenics, DDT, global cooling, alar on apples, heterosexual aids, ad nauseam. Scientists periodically turn up the hype to keep the funding flowing.

    Just criminals.

    Why should anyone take the opinion of someone who signs him/herself as “Anonymous” seriously?

    And please, quoting Christopher Booker? Of all people, he is the last source I would trust. A long track record in cherry-picking data, he has.

    That is all you have? Pathetic.
