Dropping into the 50s F here....
Historically here are some numbers....
don't buy the Carbon Tax crowd just saying....

Breaking a record means it could just break the record for one day. It could mean a high temperature hit for that particular day, or it could mean a high daily average hit for a particular day. It could mean a record was broken for any aspect of that day, the hottest temperature at eight oclock in the evening of that day can be used to call it a record breaking day.
See this post:
"In the last 365 days globally there have been 338 all time high records set and 48 all time lows. " Well, considering all of the sites worldwide, that isn't out of reasonability.
Is that's what's happening? All those record highs are occuring at stations near dried up reservoirs? At a ratio of 7 to 1?
Also, when a lake dries up because we sucked all the water out of the aquifers, the temperature there in that area can go up to all time highs.
Forests "recycle" CO2, they convert it to leaves, which fall and rot, and release CO2 into the atmosphere. Don't get me wrong. I like trees, but they are no solution to anthropogenic CO2.
I see way more than just CO2 issues being important, there are lots of variables to consider, including cutting down forests.
You hear about it, no doubt. Do you believe everything you hear, or have you gone deeper?
I see lots of tampering with deciphering the mean temperature going on these last five years.
Not sure what agenda you're talking about but global warming does not mean everywhere will be hot and nowhere will be cold.
Doesn't fit the agenda much does it?
Farmers Almanac does a better job of predicting than those AGW College educated crew...
No, they don't absorb heat, they absorb certain wavelengths of solar radiation. And yes, trees do provide shade so it is cooler under them.
Trees absorb the heat from the sun and convert it to wood and leaves. It is way cooler in wooded areas than in fields or cities.
Between 1985 and 1997, when overall forest expansion in Switzerland was approximately 4 %, the albedo RF offset the CO2 RF by an average of 40 %.
