Oregon AMS Next Week: 2nd Global Warming Meeting

April 4, 2012

Remember the OMSI fiasco with the global warming skeptics meeting last November?  Well, it’s time for the other side to present it’s case; coming next Tuesday.  This will be the first time we get to hear from our state climatologist Phil Mote as well; it should be a good meeting. 

On that subject, here is the latest UAH temperature graph (click for a better view) showing a jump in global temps during March; no doubt aided by a very warm Europe and USA.  Looks like La Nina the past two years sure didn’t cool us much; now you can go ahead and argue about that statement down below.

Here is the official meeting announcement:

What We Learn From Analyzing ALL The Evidence.”
