When is 118° not really 118° on an actual Fahrenheit Scale itself? When the numbers are massaged to inform us how hot it feels without regard for the eyeball reading in mercury glass. That figure, will be much lower because the temperature Index takes into account how warm and fuzzy it makes us, how we’re affected psychologically by plain old weather doing it’s thing. Without caveat or disclaimer, they print a big fat lie!
The fact that people pay taxes to governments that create agencies to deviate from providing service and instead get into the business of re-calibrating our inner heads in conjunction with UN policy is a calculated madness. This shameless CSM article is no more than a standard piece of agitprop that begins on a false premise and ends with the endorsement of easing government’s fingers into the small change pocket of your environment friendly blue jeans.
CSM not only show their true colours, they’ve helped us understand the word combo that is their company name. Christian denotes what they’re not, Science reveals what they pretend and Monitor succinctly identifies the Lizard species from which they hail. Ever since RMI reached the consensus that all the news we consume is manufactured in a primary if not a secondary sense, we didn’t believe they’d have the nerve to try this scam again so never underestimate the power of quick buck making! Apart from launching the Lingerie Bowl, what is the bogus climate change replay really all about?
Across the US, high-temperature records are falling like beads of sweat, thanks in part to back-to-back La Niñas and a current jet-stream pattern that is steering storm systems coming off the Pacific well up into Canada.
These records appear to be falling into step with a longer-term trend in which record highs are being set more often than record lows for each decade since the 1970s – a trend many climate researchers have attributed to global warming. (emphasis ours)
As June 2012 draws to a close, it feels more like mid-July or August to people in wide swaths of the country.
Between June 27 and June 28, 32 communities stretching from Colorado to Indiana posted the highest temperatures on record ever for their locations – with a handful tying or topping records set only a few days before, according to data kept by the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C.
Norton Dam, Kan., for instance, recorded an all-time record of 118 degrees F. on Thursday, two degrees above Death Valley’s July average. The 118-degree reading shattered Norton Dam’s previous record of 113 degrees F. – set just three days before.
More than 350 sites across a broad swath of the continent’s interior have posted daily record highs since June 27, with heat advisories on Friday covering all or parts of 23 states from Kansas east to the Carolinas and into the Northeast, and from Wisconsin south to Mississippi and Alabama.
