Warmth in the nation’s icebox

How warm is it? The National Weather Service reports that if International Falls’ temperature stays above 45 — it probably will — over the next two days, it’ll set a record for the most consecutive days above 45.

I know what you’re thinking, but the record was established in 1911.

    Warm weather in fall, means more snow in winter, if I recall.

    Records are not an accurate measurement of climate change or a reasonable scientific comparison. The data we need to be concerned about is the overall temperature trend data, after it has been averaged out for statistical highs and lows.

    Although it makes good news and is easy to emotionally disregard the real risk that climate change presents when comparing against records that were 100 years ago. It’s just not grounded in any scientific method.

    You missed the point, which admittedly was rather vague. And the point was the factoid I provided doesn’t prove any more by itself than the fact the all-time record is 100 years old.

    “The disregarding the real risk…” is a non-starter.
