Roger, It should be known to you from your Mechanical Engr schooling that when you add energy to a turbulent medium like the weather, the fluctuations of its properties increases much faster than their average values. Therefore, extreme weather is to be expected before significant average global warming. The only question is if a strong fluctuation will drive us into a new ice age, which is what the Antarctic data you post below suggests. Richard
