It’s been so warm in the United States this year- especially in March- that national records weren’t just broken, they were deep-fried. Temperatures in the lower 48 states were 8.6 degrees above normal for March and 6 degrees higher than average for the first three months of the year, which far exceeds the old records. The magnitude of how unusual the year has been in the U.S. has alarmed some meteorologists who have warned about global warming.
Complete unmitigated BS. Even after upwards adjustments – March, 2012 was barely warmer than March, 1910 in the lower 48. If you remove the adjustments, 1910 was just as warm. If you include Alaska, 1910 was much warmer.
