I originally posted this in my Dangerous Gas thread about methane levels causing the heating up of our atmosphere; you can check the thread here
But after further review, I thought this deserves its own thread.
Twin Cities news said this morning that 2012 was their hottest year on record with the temps 3.2 above average. The NY Times came out with this story
as well that says 2012 was the hottest year on record and it wasn't even close. It shattered the previous record by a full degree, which the story
says is usually measured in fractions. Ten of the warmest years on record have happened in the past 15 years. This fits our theory with the hydrogen
sulfide and the methane levels on the rise. Methane is building up in the higher levels of our atmosphere and trapping in the infrared waves, which
are resulting in a heating up that is causing a lot of problems.
Not Even Close: 2012 Hottest Year on Record
Given that this is the stats for America, and they say its not the hottest year on record for the world...but if you look back on year and the weather
all over the globe how can you dispute that the weather is super-charged. Every storm nowadays is either "once in a lifetime," "never-seen
before," "haven't seen in decades." Look at extreme flooding in UK, Indian, Vietnam. Look at weather event right now in Middle East. Extreme
cold in Russia. Look at Australia over the past few months and right now they are in such an extreme heat wave that the Australian Weather Bureau
Australia's record-breaking heatwave has sent temperatures soaring, melting road tar and setting off hundreds of wildfires - as well as searing
new colors onto weather maps. The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has added dark purple and magenta to its weather forecasting map to represent
temperatures of 51 to 54 degrees Celsius (123.8 to 129.2 Fahrenheit), officials said. Temperatures on the map were previously capped at 50 degrees
Celsius, represented by the color black.
They added these colors because of the heat they are experiencing right now which are resulting in wildfires 'the worst they've seen in a decade.'

Storms just aren't storms anymore...they are extremely super-charged!
Back to the story from the NY Times about the records. Here is another quote about how much temps have risen. This is not your normal global
warming. This is an rapid heating.
If that does not sound sufficiently impressive, consider that 34,008 daily high records were set at weather stations across the country, compared
with only 6,664 record lows, according to a count maintained by the Weather Channel meteorologist Guy Walton, using federal temperature records. That
ratio, which was roughly in balance as recently as the 1970s, has been out of whack for decades as the country has warmed, but never by as much as it
was last year.
What's happening in a quick summary: With the undeniable increase in methane, it builds up in the upper atmosphere...long wave infrared enters the
atmosphere from the sun and heats up objects on the ground and releases short wave infrared which would normally safely exit our atmosphere, but as
methane builds up it is blocking this infrared and holding it in the atmosphere, and thus the extreme heating which is causing strange weather events,
an increase in quakes and volcanoes, sky noises, unexplained explosions and sonic booms, an increase in disease because of rise in bacteria feeding on
the methane, and a rising threat of hydrogen sulfide poisoning and fires. Well, it's a theory anyways. Whether you believe is up to you, but
there's a lot of evidence despite what some may tell you. For more on this theory check out this Dangerous Gas thread
