From the Chicago Tribune, August 13, 2008
August is the wettest and often the muggiest month of the year. Yet, summer heat continues in short supply, continuing a trend that has dominated much of the 21st Century's opening decade. There have been only 162 days 90 degrees or warmer at Midway Airport over the period from 2000 to 2008. That's by far the fewest 90-degree temperatures in the opening nine years of any decade on record here since 1930.
This summer's highest reading to date has been just 91 degrees. That's unusual. Since 1928, only one year—2000—has failed to record a higher warm-season temperature by Aug. 13.
Would somebody please ask Al Gore to explain this? Based on the logic used by 'global warming' fanatics, I guess man-made global warming somehow cooled Chicago while super-heating the rest of the world. This may cause another global situation...entire populations moving to Chicago to escape the end of the world as we know it.
