Heat vs. Cold Records June 17, 2011 : 1:46 PM

Joe Romm points to a troubling trend:

“As a taste of things to come, much of the United States has just been hit by a monsterheat wave. Steve Scolnik at Capital Climate analyzed the data from NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) and found, “U.S. heat records in the first 9 days of June have outnumbered cold records by an eye-popping ratio of 13 to 1″ — 1609 to 124.”
