From meteorologist Paul Douglas:

According to scientists at NOAA and NASA May was the warmest on record, worldwide. It was the 351st month in a row of global temperatures warmer than the 20th century average.

Measurements of global temperatures are consistently rising, especially over the last half century. As the World Meteorological Organization points out: “13 of the 14 warmest years on record have all occurred in the 21st century.”

    We have finally discovered the cause of the recession in 2008-2009 as shown in this graph by BAML. The extreme weather in 2009 had a similar horrendous impact on the economy as the winter of 2013-14 just had in causing a -2.9% plunge in GFP. All major economic fluctuations now are due to climate change and winter weather. Economic and financial policies and the business cycle are simply turning into noise.

    BTW – I think the Rust Belt is going to boom over the next 50 years as the temperate weather, non-impact of sea level rise, and availability of fresh water are going to start to drive their renaissance. If only we could do something about the corrupt state governments…..
