Planet Earth

At least President Obama is recycling his cliches when he makes fun of the Flat Earth Society.

And the scientific community is united in that fact.

His own White House doesn't grasp that Alaska, Hawaii and the U.S. Territories are part of the nation as they try  to make the case that 2012 was the warmest year on record with record heat across the country.

The White House cites the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) as it's source, but the agency actually ranked 2012 the 10th-warmest on record.

Obama's speech on the Greenhouse Effect, err Global Warming, err Climate Change also mentioned that the planet is warming, but the New York Times noted earlier this month that a lull in warming has occurred.
