U.S. HAS SECOND WARMEST SUMMER ON RECORD



The period of January-August was the warmest on record (data since 1895). As the graphic above illustrates, it was warmer than normal everywhere, but especially in the middle of the country. Still, the EIA reports that although June was warmer than normal, last June was warmer yet, as measured by cooling degree days; year-to-date cooling degree days through June, though, were 11.7% higher than in 2005.

Whew, it was a hot one! It even broke a hundred degrees in the bay area for a few days. I wonder if people were using their air conditioning...
