Default Global warming update.

Went to Denver over the weekend to loot my brother-in-law's estate and damm it was 47 degrees and raining. Coldest temperature for August since 1885.

Only saw about 3 bikes all weekend. Definitely those Denver bikers wouldn't last a week in Seattle.

Earlier this year, John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel, stated that manmade global warming is “the greatest scam in history,” adding, “I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a scam.” Coleman said the theory of global warming is based on fraudulent science.

He's way late. I stated the same thing many years ago. Anyone with a brain could see the political ends to the 'Global Warming" nonsense. It became the darling of "2 Grand A Month Electric Bill Al" and the Liberal crowd, which should always be a big red flag for any thinking human.

47 and raining?....that's when you think about putting the lining back in your jacket......

So far this summer has been mostly 60's and low 70's with a few upper 90's scorchers thrown in. Next few days are supposed to be low 60's severe weather warning for the coast, inland waterways and the foothills, thunderstorms, upto 2 inchs of rain and gusts up to 35 mph with the snow level down to 6500 feet.....Not quite what we'd expect for August.

An expert from the National Autonomous University of Mexico predicted that in about ten years the Earth will enter a "little ice age" which will last from 60 to 80 years and may be caused by the decrease in solar activity.

We've had mostly 90s since June but only one day over 100 so far which is quite unusual. Usually we have a couple of weeks over 100. Dang I love this type of global warming... more rainfall (reservoirs are full) and nicer summers. Bring it on! More global warming! Time to get a two stroke! Use my chainsaw more. Remove the cat from the Subaru. That's the ticket.

Jet stream has moved nicely. Here in CA were in record drought, ski season has sucked the last few years and everything is on fire. But it has been cooler than normal...

weird weather alright. August and September are usually our summer months with dry upper 80's and 90's. We've had a few hot days here and there but mostly it just can't seem to break out of the low 60's & rain like today. To be honest I really don't mind it but a little summer would be nice.
