October 2009 Third COOLEST on Record

From the NOAA National Climatic Data Center:

"The average October temperature of 50.8°F was 4.0°F below the 20th Century average and ranked as the 3rd coolest based on preliminary data.

For the nation as a whole, it was the third coolest October on record. The month was marked by an active weather pattern that reinforced unseasonably cold air behind a series of cold fronts. Temperatures were below normal in eight of the nation's nine climate regions, and of the nine, five were much below normal. Only the Southeast climate region had near normal temperatures for October."

Yes, I know, weather is not climate - but climate is comprised of weather patterns.

And speaking of patterns... Watching Gore make a complete scientific idiot of himself on national TV: priceless

"The 192-nation climate conference beginning in three weeks in Copenhagen had originally been intended to produce a new global climate-change treaty. Hopes for that have dimmed lately. But comments by Obama and fellow leaders at a hastily arranged breakfast meeting here on the sidelines of an Asia-Pacific summit served to put the final nail in any remaining expectations for the December summit. "

Because real science doesn't support the 'urgency'? Nope. Because it's not politically expedient. Yet.
