Here's just an example:
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.State of the Climate | National Overview | October 2009
What? The third coolest October, on record, ever? Very very dire circumstances indeed. Clearly evidence that we are facing a catastrophe of epic and unprecedented impact and if we don't act now...what's that? Oh, you said coldest...well that changes things a little. Cancel the "catastrophe" headlines, this is just an unexplainable event in the geo-record not worth mentioning. Call me when we break a hot weather record.
Goracle, I hope you've been stashing away all that Global Warming money for a not all that hot, but rainy day.
