Temperatures at Past Inaugurations and the Effects of Global Warming

Did anyone else here the guy say that it probably didn’t snow this year because of global warming? Was that Chuck Todd? It was 28 degrees in Washington D.C. at the inauguration so it could easily have snowed. Second, we are in the middle of a huge cold front that is freezing everyone out at record cold temperatures through much of the country right now. Last, have a look at some of the past inaugurations:

To compare temps at past inaugurations you have to look at 1937 and beyond. That is the first year inaugurations were held in January. Prior to that they were held in March. So lets look at the inaugurations sin 1937 and see if things have warmed up:

1937 – FDR (can’t find the temp but it was the rainiest inauguration of all time > 33 degrees) – warmer
1941 – FDR (29 degrees) – warmer
1945 – FDR (35 degrees) – warmer
1949 – Truman (38 degrees) – warmer
1953 – Eisenhower (49 degrees) – warmer
1957 – Eisenhower (44 degrees) – warmer
1961 – Kennedy (22 degrees) – colder
1965 – LBJ (38 degrees) – warmer
1969 – Nixon (35 degrees) – warmer
1973 -Nixon (42 degrees) – warmer
1977 – Carter (28 degrees) – same
1981 – Reagan (50 degrees) – warmer
1985 – Reagan (7 degrees) – colder
1989 – Bush (50 degrees) – warmer
1993 – Clinton (40 degrees) – warmer
1997 – Clinton (34 degrees) – warmer
2001 – Bush (55 degrees) – warmer
2005 – Bush (35 degrees) – warmer
2009 – Obama (29 degrees)

18 inaugurations:
15 warmer
2 colder
1 the same

Does that look like Global Warming is pummeling us?
