I've been living in Kansas 14 of the last 16 years and this is the coolest summer I can ever remember. Whenever we have a cool season like this I mull over the lunacy of the global warming hype and recall the above chart.
Despite the facts concerning the natural cyclical temperature swings that can be demonstrated over the past 4500 years, I'm sure we'll continue to engage in a ridiculous amount of unnecessary "green" measures costing billions of dollars for no good reason.
This is especially ironic to think of on a day when a huge oil find was announced by British Petroleum. Keep drilling!!!
