Three important pieces of information.
First, this, from China:
Temperatures Wednesday in Shanghai hit an all-time high: 105.4 degrees, according to officials here. It was the hottest day in 140 years, since the government began keeping records.
The Chinese megacity is in the midst of its hottest summer ever.
Usually bustling streets are near empty at noon and thousands have gone to hospitals for relief.
Second, there's this from Russia, burning, once again this year:
Then there's this from our own Western mountain states:
The most important part of that article is this:
Across the Western U.S., yearly areas of snowpack are decreasing, and researchers are trying to figure out what that means for everything that relies on the snowmelt...
The Pacific Northwest has lost about 50 percent of its snowpack over the last 50 years.
When you put these three on top of the fact that the glaciers and ice caps are melting and that, last Summer, the US burned from the Southern, Mexican border all the way to the Northern, Canadian one, in all those states--and all the other indicators--I can't imagine how anyone could still deny this.
Well, unless you're an oil or coal company or some such.
Or they watch Fox "News."
