Doesn't this look pretty newsworthy?
Have you seen it in the mainstream media? I haven't.
Problem is that it does not fit the party line of the global warming fanatics. Gee, if it is that much cooler, why are we talking about Cap & Trade legislation which will raise everybody's costs of energy? Doesn't something like this FACT need to be weighed into the international discussion about supposed global warming based on model forecasts about which considerable scientific doubt exists? There are increasing scientific dissents to the supposed consensus view that mankind is warming the planet and all manner of disasters will result. But you really have to look hard for them to be reported in the mainstream media.
"The average June-August 2009 summer temperature for the contiguous United States was below average – the 34th coolest on record, according to a preliminary analysis by NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C. August was also below the long-term average. The analysis is based on records dating back to 1895. "
34th coolest summer in the last 114 years!
But not in the newspapers. Guess it’s not news.
