Record cold in Chicago; global warming postponed yet again

From CBS 2 in Chicago on Tuesday:
Have you left your air conditioner in the closet this summer, and worn long pants more often than shorts? If so, you may not be surprised to find out that Chicago is seeing its coldest July in more than 65 years.

The National Weather Service says 2009 has seen the coldest July since the official recording station was moved away from the lakefront in 1942. The average temperature this month in Chicago has been a mere 68.9 degrees.

Even in the years before 1942, when the National Weather Service recorded temperatures at the cooler lakefront, there are only three years that had colder Julys through the 26th.

There have also been far more days than usual with high temperatures less than 80 degrees this year. In 2009, there were 13 days where the temperature did not exceed 80 degrees. Only three Julys in the past 67 years have had more days in Chicago with highs less than 80 – there were 18 such days in 1992, and 14 in 1996 and 2000.

We have also failed to reach 90 degrees at any time this month.

Most of the MSM/DNC's case for the "global warming" hoax is based upon repetition of that phrase. MSM/DNC has been left with little else in recent years, as cold weather data continues to accumulate around the country and around the world.

But it is still early in hurricane season. MSM/DNC can still hope for a big disaster that might be spun into a global warming story that might rescue Obama's Cap and Tax plan.
