Coldest March Since 1994

March 2011 ended as the coolest March globally since March of 1994. The actual global temperature anomaly for the lower troposphere last month was negative 0.026 C.

This is also the first month since June of 2008 that the global temperature anomaly was in the negative.

Ice is expanding in much of Antarctica, contrary to the widespread public belief that global warming is melting the continental ice cap.  Antarctica has 90 percent of the Earth's ice and 80 percent of its fresh water.  The arctic melt is a 10% issue.

Evidence for a cooling planet has exploded. China has its coldest winter in 100 years. Baghdad sees its first snow in all recorded history. North America has the most snowcover in 50 years, with places like Wisconsin the highest since record-keeping began. Record cold in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Mexico, Australia, Iran, Greece, South Africa, Greenland, Argentina, Chile -- the list goes on and on. 

The total amount of cooling ranges from 0.65C up to 0.75C -- a value large enough to wipe out most of the warming recorded over the past 100 years.

"Global warming is over -- at least for a few decades," Dr. Don Easterbrook told conference attendees. "However, the bad news is that global cooling is even more harmful to humans than global warming, and a cause for even greater concern."

Based on figures provided by the Rutgers University Global Snow Lab, he noted that snow records from the last 10 years exceeded the records set in the 1960s and 1970s.

The climate debate rages on. The warming crowd has stumbled recently caught manipulating data.  Statistics that point toward a mini-ice age, and not a global cook-off are an "inconvenient truth".

Should we now ask, why would the US drive itself into a deeper ditch crippling its industrial base with needless new stifling regulations when  A. china has no EPA let alone an intent to curb its industrial activity  and B. evidence is conflicting, and the US econ is still so fragile, that a just about anything you can point to in world events will take it off the rails completely...

US greenhouse gases drop to 15-year low.
