82 Degrees In Chicago and Other 2012 Heat Records

As this blog has documented with public opinion data, daily weather influences substantially public opinion about global warming, and so belief in global warming must be going up with the thermometers.

So far,  in 2012,  new record hot days are outpacing record cold days by a ratio of 14 to 1.  Chicago hit 82 degrees on March 15th, a new daily record, and a full 12 days earlier than ever for reaching 82.

Since 1980, the ratio of new record highs to new record lows has been increasing steadily, and for the last 10 years has exceeded more than 2 record highs for every record low.
