(CNN) -- The mainland United States, which was largely recovering Monday from a near-nationwide heat wave, has experienced the warmest 12 months since record-keeping began in 1895, a top government science and weather agency announced Monday.
The report from the National Climatic Data Center, which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, does not take into account blistering heat from this month, with 2,116 high temperature marks either broken or tied between July 2 and July 8 in communities nationwide.

It was so hot...It was so hot that Algore was able to throw away his Viagra.

Wish I could believe these guys.
Throw their own words back in the global warming lemmings' face: there is a difference between weather and climate.
I love in bullhead City, AZ. Though to be the hottest point in the US. Today, it was about 130 degrees. it’s been horrible. At Davis Camp, about 1/2 mile from whe I live away the electronic thermometer said 140 degrees. I don’t think it was broke.
I’d say its time to move north but after looking at your graph it might be time to move south in about 5 years. Or less.
“experienced the warmest 12 months since record-keeping began in 1895”
There lies in the truth. The record keeping began in 1895, so the it has only been just a bit more than 100 years! What happened before that? The world was much hotter 13.7 billion years ago. In fact, it was so hot that all 4 fundamental forces were fused into 1! Now, that was hot! This so called heat wave is nothing compared to that! Back then no SUVs to cause the Plank Epoch either!
Bullhead City, AZ: Today’s High was 118°F at 4:25pm when conditions were Sunny
The study, recently published by the free-market Heartland Institute, inspected 860 of the 1,221 U.S. ground stations that gauge temperature changes. The findings, previously reported in this column, were alarming.
They found 89 percent of stations “fail to meet the National Weather Service’s own siting requirements” that say stations must be located at least 100 feet from artificial heat sources.
“We found stations located next to the exhaust fans of air conditioning units, surrounded by asphalt parking lots and roads, on blistering hot rooftops and near sidewalks and buildings that absorb and radiate heat,” Watts reported.
My liberal sister lives in Bullhead. She turned out to be the only liberal in the family. She spent too much time in school getting a Master's degree.

This is a warning. Hell is a lot hotter.
In 1895, how many thermometers were located over asphalt covered parking lots or installed on airport tarmacs?
It’s because we aren’t paying enough carbon taxes to the high priests of Gaia.
It got up to 69 Degrees in my garden here in Benderville aka Eureka Ca today. I had to take my sweatshirt off leaving me with nothing but a undershirt and Tee Shirt!!! (and my wrangler jeans)
Thanks....the urban Heat Impact at work.
