Ajax: The planet is turning into an ice cube, this was the year without spring, the summer was cooler than average, we are already experiencing a very early winter in both Europe and North America and you want us to believe that this was the "fourth warmest August since record keeping began in 1880?"Now that the federal government is up and running again, and NASA sites are operational, the current 30-day global temperature anomaly is:http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/map/images/rnl/sfctmpmer_30a.rn...I see lots of yellow, greens and red on this map (warm anomalies), but relatively little blue (cold anomalies). Looking at this, I see no evidence for your "very early winter in both Europe and North America". Indeed, most of Canada has had one of the warmest falls in memory. Take a look at another map of North America snow and ice cover, http://www.natice.noaa.gov/pub/ims/ims_gif/ARCHIVE/AK/2013/i...and notice all the green (snow-free) area north of 60 deg in Canada. As of Oct 17, it is snow-free right to the Arctic Ocean in the Mackenzie delta, and that is *extremely* unusual for the latter part of October. And it's warm (for the location and time of year). I've captured the local surface temperature map (for midday -- 19Z -- 18 Oct) because these contour maps don't seem to be archived. Again, take a look:http://www.ap.smu.ca/~pbennett/climate/na_surface_temp_18oct...Temperatures are above freezing (greens and yellows) right to the Arctic Ocean in western Canada and eastern Alaska. Hardly an ice cube ...What are you guys smoking? The real question is: what are you smoking, Ajax? Phil
