A Better Statistic For Rush Limbaugh

Remember when I had reported Rush Limbaugh saying something to the effect: "If Global Warming is really happening why is it colder outside than usual today?" Unfortunately Rush capitalizes on people not being able understand how things work. Even more unfortunately, people will make their opinion of things like global warming of of the Rush Limbaughs of the world.

While listening to his broadcast, since he was so forceful that it is colder than usual, I wondered how this winter is fairing. The result is in: The Northern Hemisphere Has Warmest Winter on Record this year. In fact the hottest 10 winters on record have happened in the last 12 years.

These are better statistics that could have been reported by Rush.

Actually, these aren't what you should base your belief on whether or not humans are causing global warming or not either. The scientists claim we are more than 90% confident we are.

Word of advice: when it comes to science look to the scientists, who are publishing,(this gets rid of crackpots with PhDs) on the matter and ignore Rush. (Unless he is quoting from their published finding)
