The Southeast US Has Been Cooling For 115 Years

Here we go again. Whenever there is an outbreak of severe WEATHER, the global warmists try and tie it to “Climate Change”.
First for them WEATHER is not CLIMATE, but even if you could tie them togethers the facts do not support their assertion that it is getting warmer and causing these outbreaks.
Look at where these Tornadoes occurred: The Southeast US (Arkansas, Mississippi, Georgia and the Carolinas).
What the warmists are trying to do is tie the long term trend in the Global Temperature Anomaly (GTA) to a regional phenomena, instead of looking at what the long term trend in the regional temperatures are. According to NOAA/NCDC the Southeast US is in a a long term cooling trend:
Now yo can clearly see in this screen shot of NOAA/NCDC’s own information that the long term trend of 115 years is a cooling one. You can also see that this region cycles: From about 190 to about the mid 1930’s it warmed, from then until the mid 70’s it cooled, from there to recently it warmed again. However in the last couple of years (2007 and on) it has been getting cooler again.
This clearly shows that where the tornadoes occurred the surface air temperature has NOT been warming but cooling.
