Back on January 9th of 2007 I made the following prediction:
You heard it here first! 2007 is going to be the coldest year yet. I know, the Scientists have come out to say exactly the opposite, but when next December comes around and we’ve had a balmy summer or more snow than you can imagine in December, I’ll have to remind you about this post!
Turns out I wasn’t that far off:
The average temperature across both the contiguous U.S. and the globe during climatological winter (December 2007-February 2008) was the coolest since 2001, according to scientists at NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C. In terms of winter precipitation, Pacific storms, bringing heavy precipitation to large parts of the West, produced high snowpack that will provide welcome runoff this spring. – NOAA News
Sure, it’s not the whole year, but it is interesting that it was cold enough to be notable. Now, I’m sure there’s someone who’s going to have a reason that global warming caused this, but I think it has more to do with the Earth/Sun and the cycles it goes through something that man could do.
