I'm back from vacation and damn it has been a hot summer across the country...unusually hot. Yes, it gets hot in the summer, but it has been record heat. 100+ degree temperature has been the norm for large areas of the nation outside the desert areas of California, Arizona, and Nevada. It got over 110 in areas of Oklahoma! The past ten years has seen record highs and lows. Record floods and droughts. Record hurricanes and tornadoes. Record snowstorms and ice melts. Record diseases and famines. Et cetera. Man made global warming is a fact and that needs to be shouted in the face of every global warming denier on Earth. All of them (especially my "friend" in Crystal River) have boiling eggs on the faces!
And as a side note, Oklahoma is the home of James Inhofe, one of the biggest deniers in the Senate. The fact that they are receiving some of the worst heat proves that sometimes you get what you vote for. If one state has to suffer through 110 degree heat, I would rather have it be that state than a blue state full of smart people.
