Global Cooling? Coldest June on Record in Chicago

WGNTV.COM -- The cloudy, chilly and rainy open to June here has been the talk of the town. So far this June is running more than 12 degrees cooler than last year, and the clouds, rain and chilly lake winds have been persistent. The average temperature at O'Hare International Airport through Friday has been only 59.5 degrees: nearly 7 degrees below normal and the coldest since records there began 50 years ago.

UPDATE: They are now calling it Global Climate Change.

Al Gore is reportedly scrapping his private jet, converting his mansion into a green powered condo that will accommodate 8 families and scrapping his SUV in favor of a Prius.

Oh yeah nearly forgot the newest thing to control Global Climate Change is population control...

Does it really matter - global warming or cooling? The end game is the transfer of wealth from us to them. Put on an extra sweater, it is going to get a lot colder.

The Obama administration - not content to squander our nations wealth funding ACORN and bailing the UAW - will soon be sending billions of dollars of your grandchildren's future earnings to China in an effort to fight the leftist fantasy known as "Global Warming":


U.S. Special Envoy for Climate Change Todd Stern said that there was “no question” that China would receive both financial and technological assistance from the United States as part of upcoming climate change talks to be conducted in Copenhagen, Denmark.


Kneecapping the U.S. economy seems to be the goal for Obama and his supporters. While the U.S. will be required to reduce CO2 emissions to 90's levels, China will only be expected to reduce CO2 emissions below "where they otherwise would be if no actions were taken".


China is the largest emitter of carbon dioxide in the world and it, along with the third-largest emitter India have been the source of U.S. objection in international climate negotiations, with the State Department arguing that any agreement that did not reflect the two countries’ contributions to greenhouse gas emissions would be unfair.

[...]

“We are expecting China to reduce emissions very considerably compared to where they would otherwise be,” said Stern. “That’s not an absolute reduction below where they are right now, because they [China] are not quite at that point yet. In that respect, the developed and developing countries are different.”

I am looking forward to the future political consequences of the greenies and leftists having less babies. Over time, their political influence should wane as they are increasingly outnumbered by the offspring of normal, conservative folk.

Gosh Bill, I don't know what's worse, the irrationality of the current democratic administration, or the fecundity of religious zealots.

My bet is this is related to the lack of sun activity. Scientist are seeing an amazing quiet period in solar radiation. I highly doubt this is relevant to the global warming/climate change/name of the week, debate. Just as I highly doubt a year of strong hurricanes indicates that the sky is falling and that we're all doomed!

"I highly doubt this is relevant to the global warming/climate change/name of the week, debate"...

Well maybe anon @ 1402 hrs...

Consider the following from DailyTech:

NASA Study Acknowledges Solar Cycle, Not Man, Responsible for Past Warming

You might find this an interesting read and the links are interesting also...

Gosh, misterjosh, I don't know what's worse: snarky, off-topic comments or somebody who has a monumental dearth of reading comprehension. You somehow managed to infer some religious undertone from Bill's innocuous comment that didn't even obliquely reference religion. Good job!

Misterjosh: Let me answer your question: the "irrationality of the current democratic administration" is worse. And who said "normal conservative folk" are "religious zealots" anyway? Surely you dont believe that any religious adherent is a "zealot"? Please, let's be rational now.

I've done a regression of Chicago annual average temperatures going back 100 years. Extrapolating that out for the next 100 years prduces a rise in temps of 0.02 degrees F. If there is Global Warming it aint happening in Chicago.

The Alarmists believe that big cities are heat sinks and as such should be heating up faster than the countryside. A US Geological Survey scientist told me this data was 'an anomoly', not to be taken seriously.

I'm a nightly CD reader, but Al Gore's global warming hoax is my specialty, as my blog is http://algorelied.com

Check out this post:

Excerpt:

Once again, as we do each month, GORE LIED has taken significant liberties with Dr. Roy Spencer’s monthly UAH globally averaged satellite-based temperature of the lower atmosphere. We’ve marked it up with a red marker to more fully illustrate the really inconvenient truth – that temperatures have dropped significantly, .63°F (.35°C), since Al Gore released his science fiction movie, An Inconvenient Truth at the Sundance Film Festival on January 24, 2006.
