    Great piece Greg! In regards to the comment posted below, wouldn't any graph summarizing increasing record highs have an upward slope. Chronology isn't as important as the actual temperature and its divergence from historical norms. I don't think Greg is trying to deceive anyone here.

    Thankyou,… Local Weather Comissar Greg instructs the people to not have “stupid” opinions and let “the people with (so called) expertise in those areas make the assessments.”……………...Greg loves to use the word “stupid” (4 times). And NO,…. he is not referring to himself. Next time use the term “crazy stupid”.

    Greg your “bar graph espose’ ” contains 8 bars and 6 of them represent the warmest winters in a 130 years…………..1) You deleted 122 historical bars and only used the 6 warmest bars……..2) You arranged the bars out of chronological order to get an upward rising slope effect……….3)You must really think we are “stupid”.
