Meanwhile, Outside...It's Still Getting Warmer

This is what NOAA is reporting:
The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for August 2015 was 0.88°C (1.58°F) above the 20th century average of 15.6°C (60.1°F) and the highest August in the 136-year record. This value surpassed the previous record set in 2014 by 0.09°C (0.16°F). Most of the world's surface was substantially warmer than average and, in some locations, record warm during August 2015, contributing to the monthly global record warmth. This was the sixth month in 2015 that has broken its monthly temperature record (February, March, May, June, July, and August). August 2015 tied with January 2007 as the third warmest monthly departure from average for any of the 1628 months since records began in January 1880, behind February 2015 and March 2015 (+0.89°C / +1.60°F).
But, it's OK.  We all know it's all a hoax because Senator James Inhofe found some snow in DC in the winter.

And so none of this:

Has any meaning whatsoever.

Yea, that's it.  That's what amounts to science in some very large sections of the GOP.
