Global Warming Confuses Pennsylvanian Trees

Global warming is causing leaves to change colors in the middle of August in Pennsylvania!  What’s next?  Will polar bears float on icebergs down the Ohio, Alleghany and Monongahela Rivers?  Will we see a migration of Eskimos hunting seals in downtown Pittsburgh?
CBS reports:
PITTSBURGH (KDKA)- Pittsburgh is dealing with one of the coldest summers in history, and it’s having an effect on the trees.

Friday morning temperatures fell into the 40s in Western Pennsylvania.
Meteorologists say these cold temperatures are leading to trees changing colors in the middle of August.

“This is extraordinary for August, and certainly is a reflection of the prevalence of cool weather,” KDKA Meteorologist Dennis Bowman said.

Right now Pittsburgh is on pace for the 9th coldest summer since record keeping began in 1871.

  Somebody get a hold of Al Gore, post haste!  Pennsylvania needs some carbon dioxide and fast.
