No, but you can add to the page address "?nolt=1" to disable LocalTimes.
Note that local users will see "2011-06-15 07:11" which is exactly "June 15,
2011, at 07:11 AM", it is the same, only shorter, and it also works for
languages other than English and for wikigroups in different character
encodings (Chinese, Russian...).

Timestamps are encoded in the links : the #diff123456789 part is the unique
timestamp of the edit, so you can just copy and send the link.
Using RecentChanges pages for reference is not a good idea because these pages
tend to change all the time. For a reference to a particular edit, best is to
open the page history and copy the link on the date of that edit -- you can
then send this permanent link.

The recipe can be modified to show the local time in a tooltip, but I don't
need this for pmwiki.org. If you want to install it on your own wiki, I'll
show you how.
I want to see all dates in my timezone, without having to wait for every
tooltip to appear over every link -- and you too see the dates in your local
timezone (which can be the same as for the server or not).
Again, you can add to the page address "?nolt=1" to disable LocalTimes.
Bookmark http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Site/AllRecentChangesShort?nolt=1 if you
Alternatively, a page without "RecentChanges" in the name doesn't enable the
recipe, so if for example we include AllRecentChangesShort in such a page, you
will see the dates in the original format :
