Reader “Hal” posted this comment in response to my “Coldest Summer in Chicago” article :
OOOOO a cold summer. How about looking at overall trends. You might see that it is warming. Don’t do big oils bidding. Educate yourself.
Fair enough – let’s do that.
Since the start of the NCDC record, summer temperatures in Illinois are falling at a rate of 0.2 degrees F per century.
Since 1930, Illinois summer temperatures are falling at a rate of 2.2 degrees F per century.
Hal – do you feel “educated” now?
