Limbaugh: the planet hasn't been warming, because it was 27 degrees in San Diego this morning

I quote the dumbass' comment he made today in his show:

""Twenty-seven degrees outside San Diego right now, 27 degrees, and they're talking about global warming".

Someone tell Limbaugh that San Diego is not the globe and a temperature one day in a city is not a long-term trend.

32. Rather the contrary.

As I cheerfully point out to any of those Cold in San Diago, Hot in Alaska types, what GW is about is introducing more energy nto the system in quite erratic ways, with the result that the variance increases much more dramatically than the mean. Crazy weather is exactly what's predicted by the theory, and every such example is in fact a further validation of GW theory. If they don't know what statistical variance is, I politely suggest that they get themselves an education before presuming to flaunt their ignorant opinions in public.

67. Average high in Burlington is 27, says NOAA.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burlington,_Vermont#Climate

Yeah, 40 is a tad on the high side, that is true, but it's not that terribly out of the ordinary, either.

Also, here's Weather.com's observations:

http://www.weather.com/weather/monthly/USVT0033

As you can see, Burlington's weather hasn't been that abnormal this winter, thankfully(well, so far).

I've spent a fair amount of the in the Lakes Region, came close to moving there several times, I really think the winters (historically speaking) would do me in.

I had one friend that lives just north of Winnipesaukee all year-round tell me to forget it until I'd spent at least one (again, typical) winter there.

I l do love that country and the people in that area, though.

Good luck with your plans.

So, yeah, it's not that unusual to have a few days like this, even in January. Also, according to the link I just posted, you guys should be going back down into the '20s later on during the 10-day period.

it was 25F in Escondido, a suburb at higher altitude with a more desert like climate, still only 10F below normal for that location.

62. and just for your information:

since I was there, I actually do know whereof I speak.

. . .



The record high temperature at the National Weather Service office in San Diego of 111 °F (44 °C) was on September 26, 1963. The record low temperature was 25 °F (−4 °C) on January 7, 1913. The record high temperature was tied only once and happened on September 27, 2010, 47 years and two days after the set record. Several temperatures near San Diego broke their all-time records that day.

72. Actually, you don't know...the high has never been 30 in San Diego

The lowest maximum in fact, hasn't been less than 50 since 1949. The lowest maximum since then has been 50.

In fact, not only has the high temperature never been 30 (at least not the history of weather records...), a low temperature of 30 hasn't occurred since 1949.

You were wrong there too.

As for the high temperature in San Diego, I didn't argue with you. 104 is on the high side for San Diego, but has been exceeded at least a few times.

111. the data says that such an instance hasn't happened in recorded history

were you outside San Diego?

are you estimating the temperature?

a high of 30 in the city of San Diego is so far-fetched it's not even plausible as a one time event or record.

remember, in recorded weather data since 1915, the lowest HIGH temperature is 46!

We're at 53, right now, at 7:15pm on January 11. Some of my spring flowers are starting to poke up through the garden soil. Tomorrow I'm heading out to buy some bags of dirt so I can get them back underneath the ground before the next freeze hits on Monday.

Last year I had daffodils blooming in February.

34. San Diego wasn't as cold as Limbaugh said, not even significantly below average

44F this morning, compared to a mean minimum of 49F.

tomorrow's forecasted 36F is higher than the record low for that date and the day after, so not unprecedented.

meanwhile, on average, the trend nationwide has been for higher minimum temperatures over the long term.

And furthermore, this trend is especially pronounced in Phoenix itself, where the average minimums have increased from the 30's on January nights 50 years ago to the mid 40's now and from the 70's on July nights 50 years ago the middle 80's now.

Incredible warming there.

Four days of cold weather will not offset the larger trend.

I'll need to see some citations for that; the world has only warmed about slightly over half a degree or so since the 1960s......(though if it checks out, it certainly couldn't all be due to climate change alone; Phoenix has grown quite considerably since the days of JFK.)

95. I don't think so.

Are you sure about that? This is Sydney, in January, when the high is usually around 80 by the harbor.....and in fact, the record low for Sydney for that same month is 51.....

Maybe you're thinking of somewhere else in N.S.W.?

44. He doesn't have as many as advertised

His listenership numbers come from his press agent.

Radio listener numbers by show are not calculated by any organization, just gross listener numbers for radio as a whole (Arbitron).

his listeners are the dumbest, stupidest, vilest human beings and he makes a living entertaining them. Think about it... what kind of person could possibly do something like that, I'm sure history has a list of folks like him. But it's the fools who follow his shit... they are some really damaged human beings... not just dumb, but angry, hateful fucks.

56. Well, I still feel bad...

...because part of what I said was more out of anger and frustration. It's that line we draw for ourselves... funny thing is, conservatives tend to draw that line way too soon. I just don't have much more patience nor understanding for them. For a drunk, homeless person, drug addict... I do. Once it's separated from politics, and is connected to real life issues, then I feel for folks, and yes, many of those who follow this Rush's hate-filled propaganda do suffer from the above, but they made a decision to lash out.

You are not alone... and I'm just venting. My words should be as meaningful to you as graffiti on a wall.

55. Probably talking about the County - which is bigger than Massachuttsets, at least.

And we have not only the "sunny" beach city of San Diego where but for a one or two days a year, it doesn't get below 40 degrees in the city itself, but 20 miles from the ocean, we have mountains between 3 and 5K feet, where it sometimes snows during the winter and can get pretty damn cold. Especially when we get a winter storm sweeping down from the Pacific Northwest.

Kinda like comparing the weather in upstate NY with New York City.

Every ignorant statement of his contributes to the McDonaldization of radio. Keep in mind that the leading "news/talk" station in a certain market carries Rush live! I can't decide what's worse, McDonald's food or big news/talk stations that proudly carry Rush.

70. Indeed so.

But Rush is a complete moron.....what else have we come to expect from him?

Indeed, any one single weather event, of any extreme, is not necessarily indicative of a long-term trend, whether it was the back-to-back heatwaves of 2011 & 2012, Hurricane Sandy(also from last year), the cold wave of '96, or the Miss. River Flood of '93, etc.

(What I can say, though, is that increasing amounts of research is showing evidence that we may actually seeing quite a bit of global "weirding".....I forget who coined the term, though)

"Catastrophic" Heat Wave Burning Up Australia

Sydney—Australia's most populated city—is now waking up to what may be its hottest day on record in 150 years, up to 110 degrees, creating conditions that the premier of that state, Barry O'Farrell, said could be "the worst fire danger day this state has ever faced." The threat is being met with "catastrophic" fire warnings that fires have the potential to cause significant loss of life and destroy many homes. Residents are being told to leave early from high-risk areas.

According to updates from the Sydney Morning Herald, more than 100 130 fires were burning across that state. Twenty-one Forty were uncontained.
