The 12 year time frame is a deliberately chosen period by climate change deniers. The significance of that cherry picked time span can be be seen in any long term surface temperature graphs. When you observe them, you see what I'll call a step effect, with each 10-12 year span you see a leveling off period. But the long term trend is unmistakably upward. So this 12 year cherry picked time frame has been one of the leveling off periods. 1998 happens to be the last year we experienced a strong El-Nino affect. Since then we've had a long span of La-Nina, which actually should make for cooler overall temps, and yet we've still posted annual record temps.

It certainly has paid-off nicely for Al "Henny Penny" Gore.

What used to be called "global warming" is now called "climate change" since it has been proven there has been no "global warming" in the past 12 years. There is one million square miles more ice in the arctic this year than last year. Oddly, that doesn't fit the meme of the global warming alarmists. Climate change and the cry that we "must do something about it before it's too late" is the second biggest scam in the history of America. The "climate change" scam is all about money and control.

Others have noticed that these "editorials" are fully-or-partial reprints of Editorials from other sources.

The editorial addresses comments made by Obama about weather events in the U.S, and rightly points out the purposeful omission of the lack of events which undermine his flawed premise.

Excellent editorial. Concise and precise.

Really? Man you are as far right as it gets. What about record high temperatures in Europe and Asia? Floods in Mexico, Colorado comes to mind now. Keep feeding your base.

The question posed is interesting. One thing that detracts from its usefulness is that the author uses weather(which is not the same as climate) info from the US to contest the idea of global warming. There is more to the earth than just the US.

"All in all, the weather has been nice in much of the United States this year."
