Remember years back the big fear was a new ice age? Recently the frenzy has been global warming — the ice caps are melting, polar bears dying, worldwide floods, doom doom doom, and so on. But the Chicago Tribune reports this current decade is the *coolest* since 1930.
Global cooling anyone? Let’s all buy a hummer so we don’t start an ice age!
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.
And Speaker Pelosi won’t open drilling because she wants to save the planet from global warming? Yeah, right. Once again, the do-nothing Congress lets down the American people by pushing their own agenda instead of citizens’, who want to increase energy production and develop alternatives. Drill here, drill now, pay less.
Get back to Washington and do your job. The American people are canceling their vacations while Congress takes a break.
