NOAA Announces Warmest Year-to-Date on Record

eldavojohn writes "So far, it's been a scorcher for folks all around the world. So it might come as no surprise that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has released a report revealing 2010 having the record for warmest June, warmest April to June and warmest year to date. The announcement said 'Each of the 10 warmest average global temperatures recorded since 1880 have occurred in the last fifteen years. The warmest year-to-date on record, through June, was 1998, and 2010 is warmer so far.' So far we are even surpassing 1998's records which held the warmest year (despite directly contradicting reports). It certainly seems the scads of winter precipitation we enjoyed was no indication of how we would swelter through our summer this year. Will 2010 turn it around or are we set to break more records?"

Hopefully I won't have to keep explaining to people that the 2010 blizzard in the US Northeast does not suddenly disprove global warming.
