Global Warming Hits Kansas!

Oops — make that global cooling. A headline from today’s Wichita Eagle: “Lack of Extreme Heat a Real Rarity.”

As August arrives, Wichita has recorded zero days this year of temperatures reaching 100 or more.

None. Zip. Nada.

Wichita hasn’t made it this far into a summer without reaching 100 since 1928. Herbert Hoover was president and the technological innovation sweeping the country was something called radio.

Furthermore, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center forecasts continued cooler-than-normal temps for Wichita for the rest of the month. So there is a good chance that we will make it through the entire summer without ever seeing a 100-degree day.

Hmmm. Has Al Gore been in Kansas recently?

  1. Fort Worth TX is in the same boat this year. I’m sure Al Gore could link these lower temperatures to global warming due to the melting of the polar ice cap.
