Global warming alert!!
Decade has had fewest 90-degree days since 1930 -- chicagotribune.com: "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."
I saw a headline the other day lamenting the fact that Americans are growing less worried about global warming. Pretty hard to panic them with doom and gloom predictions when they can't feel the heat.
