Hot Summer - Global Warming???

Here's a nice rejoinder to people who claim that our hot summer is proof of global warming.
The numerical global climate models predict that the Earth will warm given a continued build-up of greenhouse gases, most notably, the carbon dioxide gas coming from our burning of fossil fuels. Indeed, temperature records from throughout the world show a warming of approximately 1°F over the past century. However, almost all of the warming has occurred during the winter months just as the climate models predict. The models do not predict much change in the summer months in terms of temperature increase or some alteration of the atmospheric circulation. Blaming heat waves on global warming is a stretch, at best.
There's more reasons in the article...
