People sweltering from a heat wave in the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. might find cold comfort in the fact that the temperatures of the past few days are not the hottest on record. That “honor” belongs to a summer 76 years ago — decades before the controversy over “man-made global warming” began.
I simply find it amazing that with something as unpredictable as the weather (we can hardly get an accurate five-day forecast!), people are convinced that human beings are having a measurable impact on it. If you can’t tell me how hot it’s going to be next week, how serious am I supposed to take you when you tell me that “it’ll be hot and it’s your fault!”
