While it may have been slightly cooler in California in 2007 it was slightly hotter around the rest of the world. That article cites no references to reports or records so theres no way you can prove that it wasn't just made up on the spot. Which it probably was knowing fox news.
The article in question was presented by Fox News as an opinion piece, written by John Lott who is a senior research analyst at the University of Maryland, and holds a Ph. D in economics with environmental regulation being one of his interests. This is not some random Internet blogger or talking head we're talking about here, this is someone who gets paid to sit around and do nothing but research on a given issue and write articles for peer reviewed scientific journals.
The piece in question WAS backed up by a link to the Science section of Daily Tech.com, itself backed up by mutliple credible sources including several well known newspapers and NASA.
Either you have a reading comprehension problem, or you're so blinded by your own hatred for Fox News that you won't even consider granting the article in question a scrap of consideration.
You actually should call global warming, global climate change because there will not be the same result of it in every location of the world. But climates will change if trends continue and this is what pose the highest realistic risk in the future.
"Climate change" is a $5 word that was invented by political hacks like yourself so that no matter what happens you won't ever be accused of being WRONG, because either way, change in the climate took place.
And while we're on the subject of said hacks being wrong, I'd like to bring up the issue of Global Cooling as it was brought up some thirty odd years ago. Notice how dire the warnings were; death by starvation for millions worldwide because the crops would be killed in freak cold snaps as a brand new ice age approached.
So what happened?
