The “West Coast Electric Highway” is an extensive network of electric vehicle (EV) DC fast charging stations located every 25 to 50 miles along Interstate 5 and other major roadways in the Pacific Northwest. The Washington State Department of Transportation leads the charge on the Washington segment, the Oregon Department of Transportation heads up the Oregon segment, and the California segment is coordinated by a Governor’s Office interagency group.

The west coast has a robust EV charging network with thousands of Level 2 charging pedestals and dozens of DC fast chargers.

Yup Sketch, surely appears obvious that the PEOPLE feel the exact same way as I, you and a couple others here do.

if you're basing how people 'feel' on that map, be sure to ignore the populations of all 'them' red states. Anti scientism whackadoodle nut jobs per square mile would be a more reality based measure. and would look something like this....

Are you bible thumpers still babbling on with your climate change denying lunacy? Go away...maybe back to the Middle Ages.

Personally I believe the the whack jobs running this fantasy green utopian circus are some of the worst criminals inhabiting the planet. If their vision , and often stated agenda, runs its course it will result in genocide and environmental disaster on a heretofore unseen level as the culled do not go silently into that long night.

The people are awake to this, the politicians supporting the scam are suffering the consequences, more and more, globally. We need to start seeing some prosecutions against the worst perps or face the neccessity of nuremberg type proceedings later.

Hang em, hang em high.

It's to show you and TGT how averages work, Sketch.

When the temps drop in Wawaguna, the temps rise in Wawawunda

They don't Sketch. The 'pause' increased the long term warming rate.

That's the problem when one cherry picks.

G20 giving $88 billion a year to support fossil fuel exploration – despite pledge to eliminate subsidies

"Every U.S. dollar in renewable energy subsidies attracts $2.50 in investment, whilst a dollar in fossil fuels subsidies only draws $1.30 of investment," says the ODI in a summary of their report.

Thanks for the weather report, TGT.

Again, why did it exclude data of the last 13 years for the averages?

Because it is standard practice to compare the temperature against the average of a base period that often ended some years ago? It really doesn't make much sense to change the base period very often.

LOL, Sketch.

The different datasets don't all use the same base period.

That doesn't change the trend or overall temp gain.

RSS goes to 1998, UAH goes to 2010.

Perhaps you can explain why it has some significance for you?

How often should these averages be updated? Every five years? Every ten years?

I don't know and I really don't care much. Why does it matter?


The NSIDC uses a 1981-2010 average for its Sea Ice extent data. I think it was updated in 2011.
and hadcrut uses 1961-1990.

Look Frosty, when you have many of the worlds greatest scientists examining the studies/model predictives and determining the CAGW theory Invalid, when you have the upper eschelon of climate scientism , Kevin Trenberth , publically stating GCM's in no way represent the reality of climate, you don't have to rely on intuition or years of study to determine the facts for yourself.

Take the frost covered blinders off you lazy dumbass and venture past the comfort zone of your blog conditioning. What a cantankerous azzhole you are Frosty.

We are all ears, Sketch.

What is the significance of including or not including the last 13 years in a baseline reference period?

The city's 6-degree high on Wednesday shattered a 98-year-old record for the coldest high on this date.


The previous record low of -4 was even older, set more than 130 years ago in 1882

Today's climate models predict a 50 percent increase in lightning strikes across the United States during this century as a result of warming temperatures associated with climate change.
But another significant impact of increased lightning strikes would be more wildfires, since half of all fires -- and often the hardest to fight -- are ignited by lightning, Romps said.
