Arctic ice has been increasing now for a week. This increase, if it persists would be the earliest in at least a decade.

Three years after the year 2008, when some prophets had predicted arctic ice would vanish in the summer bottomed out 6.4% above the 2007 satellite record minimum.

 Here is the latest plot;
Article above linked is a gem and these folks give the weather without the alarm. I like to periodically go there to get the long term trend, such as whether it will be colder or warmer this winter whether La Nina or El Nino reign .


La Nina Messes with Texas (Again! & Every Time in Recorded History Happens in Predicted Drought)

Chatting With a NOAA Meteorologist About This Drought: What It Is and What It Ain’t
By Brantley Hargrove Fri., Sep. 16 2011
“So, what’s our problem? Mostly, it’s La Nina, that little trollop. She’s been messin’ with Texas for a long time. And the relationship between her cool Pacific sea-surface temperatures and dry times here is pretty well established.

For nearly 120 years, since we’ve kept any kind of reliable records, La Nina has visited us 20 times, 19 of those resulting in below normal precipitation, according to Dr. Robert Hoerling, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration research meteorologist, who served as the lead author of the U.S. Climate Change Science Plan Synthesis and Assessment Report.

In fact, of all southwest states, Texas is pretty unique because a relatively long-term forecast of below-average rainfall can be made with some certitude where she’s concerned. Now, just looking at La Nina won’t tell us how deep the drought will be, but her presence tells us something’s coming — or not.” Read Entire Article;

for the rest of the lovely charts and the whole article.

Now those articles put alarmist global warming reports in the right place (the trash can) so go outside and (as Joe Alesandro says) Enjoy the weather, it’s the only weather you’ve got! :)))))))))) It’s the last week of summer and the temperature at 12:20pm CDT where I am is 74degrees looking out for a high of 83 this afternoon.
