Australia – was hot and is hot. So what? This is not an unusual heat-wave « JoNova
Here is a sample of just a few of those records for which we have documentary support. See how many are in the late 1800′s and early to mid 1900′s. You can’t blame those high records on man made global warming.
THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper finds European temperatures are not unusual or unprecedented
A new paper published in Climate of the Past reconstructs temperatures in Switzerland from 1444 to 2011 on the basis of grape harvest dates and finds temperatures were about the same as today at the beginning of the record around 1450 AD, and that temperatures of today have been matched or exceeded several times in the past.

Far from the claims of extreme weather, that we are used to hearing from Katharine Hayhoe and co, 2012 was remarkably, well, unremarkable!

Days without rainfall were pretty much normal by historical standards, while areas with more wet days then normal were well below normal.

Warning Signs: NY Times Environmental Desk Goes the Way of Global Warming
The good news is that there will not be an environmental editor or deputy environmental editor at the Times, nor seven reporters whose sole job was to report lies intended to advance and bolster the agenda of the Environmental Protection Agency, NOAA, and the agendas of heavily funded environmental organizations such as the Sierra Club, Friends of the Earth, and the World Wildlife Federation.
