40. Attention Seeking won't get you into 'Nature' (or 'Science', for that matter)

It's every scientists dream to publish in Nature or Science - with the extremely high impact factor of these journals you basically fulfill a year's worth of publication duty in addition to the high prestige this brings. These journals have the toughest peer-review processes imaginable.

Apart from that, contrary to your claim in post 39, the article clearly states that the 3C rise (Centigrade, not Fahrenheit - in Fahrenheit this would be 37.4) refers to annual averages, not monthly. Here's the chart. Look at the explanatory text below the chart under a, first three words.

Taking your San Diego example, the August average temperature would thus be (at the very least) 112F - about equal to the warmest ever recorded temperature. As summer and winter temperatures vary considerably, the actually possible summer maximum temperatures would indeed be of the charts: using your example temperature difference between today's August average to recorded highest temperature, 35F, this would mean temperatures up to 149F or 65C (!14F higher temp than ever recorded (!Death Valley high! Table 4 on page 8) - very bad news and 'off the charts' indeed.

'Let the actual research speak' is exactly what Mora's team does. But that demand incidentally is the typical climate change skeptics' 'schtick' in the hope that people won't be able to interpret the actual science, by no means simple. Sorry.
