Brutally hot summer? What a ridiculous joke...;) This has been one of the mildest, coolest summers on record in my neck of the woods. "Experts"?...what a joke. Partisan political idiots, is more like it, imo.
You realize the world is larger than "your neck of the woods," and that there's actual data backing this?
Typical far right extremist: "My anecdotal evidence is better than literally hundreds of thousands of data points from experts! Facts are political to me, so I'll ignore ones I don't like!"
I wonder if Walt even realizes he's far right? He probably thinks the entire country is like him.
He's using Louie Gohmert logic: snow fell somewhere in the world, so climate change can't be real!
tell me you're just kiddin' around, Walt...I honestly don't know how >anyone< can say, with a straight face, that climate change and/or global warming isn't a 'thing'! How can you possibly look at the last say, four or five years and claim that there's nothing abnormal about the weather patterns and the associated destruction caused by them when it gets nasty? Last year had 30 (THIRTY!!!) named storms in the Atlantic basin alone with 11 making landfall! ELEVEN! The 2004 and 2005's seasons made headlines for years for it's insane storm count (three
hurricanes went over the same exact spot in FL within a two month period!) and last year blew by them! We had so many we literally ran out of names for them! Aside from hurricanes, we've had tornadoes, HAIL (I got knocked in the head with a tennis ball sized hail stone in summer of 2019, like getting beaned in the head with a brick!), flooding, wildfires, heatwaves, cold snaps, NorEaster's, Atmosphere 'Rivers' in the west...you name it! This isn't normal!
I'll say it again - This kind of behavior is NOT
normal! And we have only to look forward to more of all of it! And what we're getting now we can't reverse. We've gone way past the time to undo that damage. What we can do now is stop it from getting magnitudes worse. (...dogs and cats living together, MASS HYSTERIA!') But in order to do that, everyone needs to be on the same page. And unfortunately, we seem to be more divided about everything than ever! We have to save ourselves, there is no magic button, no 'get out of climate change free' card. But it's something that HAS to be done. Otherwise our future generations will inherit a world WE destroyed and they'll have every right to be angry for it.
