Clueless At A Famous Cambridge, Massachussets University | Real Science
...That is exactly the behaviour we would expect from Urban Heat Islands. Phoenix, Arizona is often 15 degrees hotter at night than the surrounding desert. Denver can be 20 degrees warmer during the winter than surrounding areas at the same elevation.
The planet’s temperature changes as much as 12C on a regular basis. How can any educated person claim that a 0.65C rise is due to man? That amount is less than measurement error in the paleo data.
THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: Shocking extremes in US drought and flood conditions!
...occurred in the 1930's, 1950's, 1970's, 1980's...

During the past decade, not so much.
Temperatures During The Ordovician Were Above The Boiling Point Of Water | Real Science
The Obama administration tells us that an increase of 200 ppm CO2 will increase temperatures by 11F. CO2 during the Ordovician was about 4,000 ppm higher, so we can infer that temperatures at the time were well above the boiling point of water.

(4,000 / 200) * 11 = 220 degrees.
