Default Map of 2008 YTD ConUSA temperatures

A friend shared this with me this morning and I found it interesting enough to share. Pretty dramatic, I thought!

Bob, it looks like your area has become a "banana belt"!

Never would have believed it 20 years ago. I think the Basjoo introduction has made a lot of north east gardeners a bit crazy(we have a lot of fun though).

The map really makes some question the impacts of global warming. Yeah, it's only for a small period, but it goes against "regular" thinking of global warming (whatever that is!). LOL.

In my opinion, musa basjoos are the savior of tropical bananas for northern gardeners. I don't know what I'd do without this easy to grow banana. I just wonder what other bananas are out there that could be as hardy as basjoo.

John, I think you'll have to wait quite a while for that and even hope for return of sun spots to have "normal" temperatures. I thought we were cooler than normal, overall, this year, but I guess we were close enough to come up as normal. It was a good year for bananas, though, since we didn't have the extreme lows that are common, just lots of days with frost (more hours below 45F than normal).

Lynn, we've know for a while that you weren't normal!

Austin, I agree, makes you wonder about some of the claims, though I think it's mostly due to reduced sun spot activity this year. I don't get too excited about these things but do find them interesting to read about.

All kidding aside, it's those colder lows that keep me from planting my coco palm.

Those who try to scare us on these changes (coastal cities where 100s of people live, etc). will take many, many years to occur, usually stated by the saner of the alarmists, in the 100 year range. Even my worst clients can move in a much shorter time frame than that......the new coastline will still be populated by people who want beachfront property.

Believe me, there are plenty of folks trying to scare us too. Every environmental researcher who needs a grant to 'study' global warming (why does it need study when we are told by algore the the debate is over?) will ginn up some data that ecplains the next tragedy to befall the earth.

Global warming is no longer scary enough, we now have "Sudden Climate Change" which is currently defined as gloable wrming followed by an immediate Ice Age. Now,...this is very, very, scary.....maybe the grants to study this will be bigger. If these phenomena are manmade, it would have shown up by now, if they are natural, all of the study in the world will not change it.

All of these studies of course will be funded by you and I, causing a lower standard of living, higher costs.

Read Michael Crichton's speech in Washington DC (delivered in 2005) on 'consensus' science.
Welcome to MichaelCrichton.com

He was a brilliant man and I, for one, will miss him. I didn't agree with everything he wrote about, but it was hard to refute his facts. He was, beyond an author and a doctor, a scientist in the truest sense.

Thanks,

Is there another graph that shows days above 32 farenheit so far this year or Growing Degree Days
