NOAA Data Reveals More Global Warming Skepticism

A monthly report from the NOAA shows that October was the 3rd coldest on record. How can this be with Al Gore's money making assertion that the planet is burning up? The fact is many scientists believe we are in a longer term cooling period marked with shorter term fluctuations in temperatures - some lasting longer than others. These are all determined by sun spot activity - the driving force behind our planet's weather. The NOAA reports:

National Overview:

  • Temperature Highlights - October
  • The average October temperature of 50.8°F was 4.0°F below the 20th Century average and ranked as the 3rd coolest based on preliminary data.
  • For the nation as a whole, it was the third coolest October on record. The month was marked by an active weather pattern that reinforced unseasonably cold air behind a series of cold fronts. Temperatures were below normal in eight of the nation's nine climate regions, and of the nine, five were much below normal. Only the Southeast climate region had near normal temperatures for October.
