Man-Made Global Warming Makes It Cold

Anchorage's So-Called Summer Of '08
The coldest summer ever? You might be looking at it, weather folks say.

Right now the so-called summer of '08 is on pace to produce the fewest days ever recorded in which the temperature in Anchorage managed to reach 65 degrees.

That unhappy record was set in 1970, when we only made it to the 65-degree mark, which many Alaskans consider a nice temperature, 16 days out of 365.

This year, however -- with the summer more than half over -- there have been only seven 65-degree days so far. And that's with just a month of potential "balmy" days remaining and the forecast looking gloomy. [...]

So what's going on in Alaska, which also posted a fairly frigid winter?

LA NINA

Federal meteorologists trace a lot of the cool weather to ocean temperatures in the South Pacific.

When the seas off the coast of Peru are 2 to 4 degrees cooler than normal, a La Nina weather pattern develops, which brings cooler-than- normal weather to Alaska.

For most of the past year, La Nina (the opposite of El Nino, in which warmer-than-normal ocean temperatures occur off Peru) has prevailed. But that's now beginning to change.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Web site, water temperatures in the eastern South Pacific began to warm this summer -- and the weather should eventually follow.

What!? You mean, the climate isn't controlled by humans!? It... it... changes al by itself!? Are you sure it's not caused by incandescent light bulbs and The Algore's idling limousines!?

Sing along with me!
Oh I come from a well lit mansion down in Tennessee,
I traveled out to see you on a jet flown just for me.

It rained all night the day I left, the weather it was dry
The sun so hot I froze to death; Now Gaia don't you cry.
