Earth Day 2009

climate_graph2If you are a little skeptical whether our weather is warmer or colder than it has been, take a look at this graph.

It was put together by Stu Ostro, Senior Meteorologist for The Weather Channel by using data collected by the National Climatic Data Center.

The data starts with the new millenium and continues through this month! It shows that by a margin of nearly two to one we have more record highs than record lows in the United States.

There are some interesting parts of this. For most of the country our climate was fairly cool/moderate in 2008. However there were still many more record highs than record lows.
