Climate data from Accokeek

For 30 years or so, Lona and I have kept a diary in which I usually record leaf budding in Spring, and leaf fall in the Fall. If anyone would like to transcribe this onto a spreadsheet and graph it, let me know. I'll bet it shows some climate change.

I'm not convinced about the icecover in the Arctic though. A NASA contractor who obviously wanted to keep his contract said that ice-cover 2008-2009 was the fifth thinnest in the last six years. Talk about "spin". Another way to put it is that this year was the second thickest in six years. In other words, the ice is getting thicker recently. But that would go against Hanson's biases in the propaganda department. Objectivity in science is best.
