									Summer Average Temperatures at U.S. Weather Stations in 2010, Compared with Historical Data from 1895-2010

Note: 153 of 1,218 weather stations in the contiguous United States maintained by the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration experienced all-time record summer (June-August) temperatures. This number differs
from the number of cities that experienced record hot summers because the weather stations are often located in
rural areas.

and Economic Collapse (New York: W.W. Norton & Company, 2010). For more information and a free download
