Global warming hoaxers have been silent lately

Email

We're not hearing much from the "global warming is a hoax" types these days. Although it is weather, NOAA reports that worldwide we have had the warmest March since records began in 1880:

"The combined global land and ocean surface temperature anomaly for March 2010 was 0.77°C (1.39°F) above the 20th century average, resulting in the warmest March since records began in 1880."

Based on ocean temperature and circulation patterns, the Weather Service forecast a warmer than average temperature for us this past winter season. The Farmer's Almanac predicted a severe cold winter. Chalk up one for science.
