Global warming skeptics have reveled the last few years in climate change rallies and events occurring at venues or towns experiencing colder than normal temperatures as well as late season snows.
It goes without saying that one of the funniest was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-California) visit to Europe in April to discuss global warming with various European leaders just when parts of the continent were hit with some of the latest snows in history.
With that in mind, it would be only fitting if Live Earth concert goers around the world were greeted with sub-average temperatures as they come together to draw attention to the planet’s imminent doom caused by global warming.
The first concert began Saturday in Sydney, Australia, with temperatures fitting in perfectly for AGW skeptics looking for a chuckle (put down your soft drinks and coffee):
High of 53, low of 43, with an historical average daily high of 62 and average low of 43.
Gotta love it. So, the first Live Earth concert to warn the world about global warming will occur in temperatures almost ten degrees below normal.
Fabulous start for skeptics with a sense of humor.
Let’s see how things are setting up elsewhere:
Toyko saw a high of 78, a low of 71, with averages for this day of 82 and 70.
Marvelous. Two for two:
- Shanghai made the alarmists happy, as temperatures soared into the mid-90s a good nine degrees more than normal.
- Yet, Johannesburg, South Africa saw temperatures about three degrees below normal.
- Hamburg, Germany concert goers also saw cool temperatures as highs only got into the low 60s well below the historical average for this day of 70.
- London concert goers saw normal temperatures at Wembley Stadium around 70.
- The same is true in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where temperatures Saturday will reach normal highs of 79 degrees.
- In East Rutherford, New Jersey, where the New York concert will be held, temperatures will get into the high 80s about six degrees above normal, but well below the all-time high for the day of 96.
Add it all up, and the Live Earth concerts designed to draw attention to global warming averaged a high temperature slightly below normal for this time of year.
Anybody want to bet that if this issue is even addressed, only the above average highs in New Jersey and China will get reported?
