Taken by the Mrs. five minutes ago in the front yard. Our grass needs mowing, too.

Meanwhile one of the 2 stupid letters of the day* takes the populist view that this person won't believe climate change until there's a peer-reviewed scientific paper that proves there's no global warming!

By coincidence when I was typing the KNS site into my browser, the auto-complete pointed to this article.

The July 2011-June 2012 12-month period surpassed the June 2011-May 2012 period as the warmest consecutive 12-months that the contiguous U.S. has experienced, according to the NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center.

Each of the 13 months from June 2011-June 2012 ranked among the warmest third of their historical distribution for the first time in the 1895-present record, according to the NOAA.

The odds of this occurring randomly is 1 in 1,594,323, according to the NOAA.

(*The other stupid letter of the day being this one.)

Oh, and this article at Slate

Oh, and this article at Slate also comes to mind:

Oh my. Powell looked at 13,950 articles. Out of all those reams of scientific results, how many disputed the reality of climate change?

Twenty-four. Yup. Two dozen. Out of nearly 14,000.
