Where's The Heat??

PostBy: Wood'nCoal On: Wed Jul 08, 2009 10:33 pm

As of today, July 8th, I have not used the air conditioners here yet. I have a whole-house fan that cools the place off at night. As a matter of fact the temperature outside is 58 degrees. Where's all the global warming???

I believe a strange phenomenon has caused all the hot air to be concentrated & passed directly through the White House this year. :idea:

It's hard to get hot when it's raining! We had the wettest June on record & July is the same so far. The lawn hasn't been mowed in weeks 'cause it's always raining!

We finally got out of that rut here on Sat. the 4th. I was watching the weather today and did notice you were still in that rut up there. These systems seem to get here then stop and just spin over top of us. Hopefully you will get a break soon Freddy. Although the rain has passed, the temps still remain in the 70's days and 50's nights. Won't complain though. It's better than a swelltering 90'

Learn about the Solar Cycle.

The Maunder Minimum

Early records of sunspots indicate that the Sun went through a period of inactivity in the late 17th century. Very few sunspots were seen on the Sun from about 1645 to 1715. Although the observations were not as extensive as in later years, the Sun was in fact well observed during this time and this lack of sunspots is well documented. This period of solar inactivity also corresponds to a climatic period called the "Little Ice Age" when rivers that are normally ice-free froze and snow fields remained year-round at lower altitudes. There is evidence that the Sun has had similar periods of inactivity in the more distant past. The connection between solar activity and terrestrial climate is an area of on-going research. http://solarscience.msfc.nasa.gov/SunspotCycle.shtml

We are at just now seeing some solar activity after a long period of being dormant.

Global Climate Change is a religion. The Aztecs used to throw people to their deaths in the hope for a better crop, today many are content to sacrifice their Liberty for appeasement.

But hey, feel free to tax yourself into oblivion over something you can never control.

The tree huggers are holding back the heat for winter so we won't have to burn coal. :)

Interesting! I will.

I heard ALGORE has a plan to move the earth a foot or so farther from the sun using giant rockets buried top down in the earth in order to reduce global warming and an alternate plan to tax the Sun to force it to lower energy output.

Well for June 2009 it's back to average I'm assuming based on temperature readings since 1979.

Here in the Nation's Capital we are experiencing beautiful Sept days in July; low 80s with a light breeze. Does it get any better then this? Although I'm sure that the heat will return in full force for the last half of the month and August. Only 4 months to go until I can light up the Harman! Not that I'm counting or anything. :D

Hi Guys,

I am getting nervous about this extended cool spell and got to wondering how the long-term forecast was looking. Not good, at it turns out. My region can expect a wetter, colder winter starting earlier and lasting longer into April. Daily temperatures are projected to be 10 degrees colder then normal. That puts us at a daily temperature of 17 degrees. I know you guys in MA are laughing at that but for around here that will be a real hardship; especially if the Cap and Tax goes through. I think I’ll get an extra ½ ton. It maybe that more of my friends and acquaintances will be making the hour drive to the closest coal dealer. Nay, they will just bitch and wonder what happened to the America they grew up in. Lisa
