Chicago – Coldest Four-Month Period In City History

Coldest in at least 140 years!

The average temperature for the December through March period in Chicago of 22.0°F (-5.6C) makes it “the coldest such period on record for Chicago dating back to 1872!” says the Weather Service.

Where are the media headlines?

Instead, all we get are misleading, hand-wringing stories about global warming.

Here’s the statement:

  1. As I said before, I’ve seen no mention of any of this in the UK – it might weaken the Global Waxxx Climate Change story they’re all trying to put over.

    The BBC, for all it’s well-earned laurels of truth and impartiality, held at least two high-level meetings some while ago to decide what their approach should be. And my gosh, they’ve stuck to the approved line ever since!
