NOAA: 2010 ties 2005 as warmest year on record

NOAA says 2010 tied with 2005 as the warmest year of the global surface temperature record, beginning in 1880, according to new posting on NOAA.gov.

"This was the 34th consecutive year with global temperatures above the 20th century average," the post said. "For the contiguous United States alone, the 2010 average annual temperature was above normal, resulting in the 23rd warmest year on record."

    Gacicias Amigo(s). It is truly an honor to recieve this prestigious award. And now I know that if I were to die today, my brain would have reached it's full capacity. Because according to your theory, when people die of old age, had they lived another 20 years, they wouldn't have learned anything new.

    In reality, the human mind has the capacity to memorize millions of encyclopedia volumes of information, we just don't live long enough to actually do it. This fact is a real bummer for evolutionists. And there are many more "bummers" out there.

    The Deniers Have Won.
    Now we charge the news editors with treason for leading us to a Bush-like false war against a false enemy of climate change.
    Climate Change did to journalism and science what abusive priests did to religion.
    Drop the CO2 and restart environmentalism anew with courage, instead of fear.
