Keeping with my ongoing project to document recent climate trends in the U.S., I present to you the continuing cooling trend in the contiguous U.S. Cooling trend is a remarkable 10.5 deg F per century! Of course, this is just a trend and it will change in the future. This data comes from the National Climate Data Center and NOAA.
Climate alarmists have gone on record to proclaim that there has been no significant global warming since 1998. The NOAA data doesn’t just confirm the lack of warming for the U.S. but demonstrates significant cooling during this period. This is all very embarrassing to the global warming crowd and you can bet that if this same data set were showing a warming trend over the same time period that they would be making a lot of noise about it and the national press would be proclaiming doom and gloom. You will not see any mention of this cooling trend in any of the popular press.
Most Recent 12-Month Period (May – Apr) 1998 – 2011 Average = 54.06 degF
Most Recent 12-Month Period (May – Apr) 1998 – 2011 Trend = -1.05 degF / Decade (-10.5 deg F/century)
