California Surface Temperatures, 1834-2011

Using the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) data here, the following plot was created. It represents regional climate change for the State of California. The plot shows the mean monthly surface temperature, the mean daily maximum surface temperature, and the mean daily minimum surface temperture. Compare the plot below with that provided here based on the same underlying data.

More work needs to be done examining the BEST data, but this first cut suggests that those attempting to justify burdensome CO2 emission regulations based on the historical temperature record below have likely been smoking too much medical marijuana……having hallucinations of hockey sticks in every graph they see. The historical record suggests a very broad yet defined band of highly variable temperatures, while CO2 has increased. Compare the surface temperature trends below with the atmospheric CO2 levels over roughly the same period, also shown below.

Hamas uses water as political tool to blame Israel, hurt people

The problems of water and sanitation in Gaza are not new. Consistently, the terrorist group Hamas who rules the area lets the people suffer so that it can blame Israel for all its problems.  It is public relations battle for Hamas and the United Nations against Israel, with the people caught in the middle.
