You can't make this stuff up

Impressive: It's a real feather in the cap of Politico that they published this news article which claims that the newest scientific data says we're actually experiencing global cooling. (Via Talking Points Memo.)

Nature, Science, PNAS, step aside:
D’Aleo reported in the 2009 Old Farmer’s Almanac that the U.S. annual mean temperature has fluctuated for decades and has only risen 0.21 degrees since 1930 — which he says is caused by fluctuating solar activity levels and ocean temperatures, not carbon emissions.

So is it all satire? The Talking Points reference was definitely ironic (though perhaps a bit too subtle), but the article is so silly I wondered if it was satire too.

This squares with the level of scientific clue I've found in some corporate CTOs I've visited in the past year.
