Obama On Mount Rushmore?

Yesterday, Greenpeace defaced Mount Rushmore with a giant banner that had a picture of Obama and the words "Stop Global Warming", they said if Barack Obama wanted his face on Mount Rushmore he better do just that.

I say let's put his mug on there because he already has stopped Global Warming.
At the G8 yesterday President Obama said he would limit global warming to an increase of 2 degrees. Well that's an easy goal to reach because the global temperature has already cooled significantly since he has taken office. I think just the fact of him being President has scared off Global Warming forever.

Prince Edward Island
Temperatures dropped to a record low in Prince Edward Island overnight Tuesday, with reports of frost throughout the province, for the first time EVER in the month of July.

New York
New York just finished one of its coldest Junes ever, the temperature never reached 90 degrees, in fact It didn't even reach 85 degrees. The average temperature was 67.5 degrees (3.7 below average)

The month of June, 2009 will go down as a very cool one, bucking the trend for many across the nation. I have already pointed out that Baltimore did not reach 90F for the first time since 1979. It was only the 6th time that had happened in 140 years of record keeping. More on our cool and stormy June can be found here. In addition, it was a month that produced three tornadoes in the metro Baltimore area.

The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees were rained out six times in June. They had so much rain between May and June (over 10 inches), that their home stadium field is now too muddy for games. It has not had a chance to drain or dry out. The team may be forced to play the rest of their season at another venue while their turf is rebuilt.

On June 12, Chicago's WGN Chief Meteorologist Tom Skilling (one of my favorites growing up), had this report:

The cloudy, chilly and rainy open to June here has been the talk of the town. So far this June is running more than 12 degrees cooler than last year, and the clouds, rain and chilly lake winds have been persistent. The average temperature at O'Hare International Airport through Friday has been only 59.5 degrees: nearly 7 degrees below normal and the coldest since records there began 50 years ago.

Just to spread the wealth, the Minnesota Climatology Working Group also noted their abnormally cool start to June.

Minneapolis/St. Paul: Three days in a row with highs below 60F. The last time was June 1-3, 1951. The only other years were 1917, 1935, and 1937.

The maximum temperature of 52 degrees on June 6th set a record as the coldest high temperature for the date, and was the 6th coldest high temperature on record for June, going back to 1872. The coldest June high temperature was in the 40's in the Twin Cities. On June 13, 1947 the high was 49 degrees.

The high temperature in Duluth on June 8th only reached 47 degrees. The last time it was that cold was in 1989. The average high for June 8th in Duluth is 70F.

North Dakota
It has been cool as well in Fargo/Moorhead with four consecutive days of temperatures staying below 60F. One day in particular stands out. On June 6th the high was 53F and the low was 34F, making the day 20 degrees below normal. Snow was even reported in central North Dakota on June 6-7th with a few totals approaching two inches to the west and north of Bismarck.

Up until June 24th, central Arizona had its coolest June on record since 1913. The month did end with their typical 100F heat.

So let's just declare Global Warming a dead issue, no need to tax our breath, and put Obama on Mount Rushmore to remind the globe to never warm again.

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like 'Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of "neighbors" will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune "Social" is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

Do not argue Do witches run spell checkers?

I like your writing style, and I'm hoping for more posts like this one.

Dude, I really like My Tribe! This is without doubt one of the biggest video games of all time! I ponder whether everyone knows there's a facebook version of the game now? You can have your pals playing with you and everything! I made a facebook fanpage with the entire latest and greatest information for My Tribe known as Download Trap Or Die 2 Mixtape NOW. Come and grab my e book and learn the way to get to stage 70 in 1 day, limitless pieces, and the whole thing else!
