Global Warming Follies

Take that ALGORE!

ALGORE’s hometown of Nashville isn’t cooperating with the Global Warming agenda:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Cool weather has broken a previous low temperature for July 21 in Nashville that was set when Rutherford B. Hayes was president.

When the temperature at the National Weather Service station dipped to 58 degrees at 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday, it wiped out the previous record low for the date of 60 degrees, which was set in 1877.

Was this just a freak anomaly? Apparently not.

NWS forecaster Bobby Boyd noted it was the third consecutive morning when Nashville either tied or broke a daily low temperature record.

And here in Chicago we’re still waiting for summer to really begin.

Now, of course, we know that local weather is not global climate. We also know it’s hot in the South and West. So its only having a fun to point out little factoids like this.

But, that being said, it’s beginning to look like 2009 will be another year of a decline in global temperatures. According to satellite measurements, global temperatures were at “normal” levels through June of  this year with a “Global Temperature Anomaly” of 0.00 degrees C. 

I’ll look for that info to be reported broadly in the MSM.    🙂



Now its fish

Another problem caused by GW.

Fish have lost half their average body mass and smaller species are making up a larger proportion of European fish stocks as a result of global warming, a study published Monday has found.

“It’s huge,” said study author Martin Daufresne of the Cemagref Public Agricultural and Environmental Research Institute in Lyon, France.

Oh those silly French. Always missing the irony.
