Drudge Missed One
Mat Drudge is the master of the juxtaposition. However, today, July 7, he missed a great opportunity. The headline read, “From Boil To Broil” with a picture of the flaming sky he’s been using. But down in the columns he has, “Britain facing ‘worst ever’ summer; cold wet weather blighting Olympics…”
How do you break 4,500 temperature records during a single heat wave? By using lots of measuring stations that didn’t exist in the 1950s (record high in St. Louis was 115° in 1954) and especially the 1930s (The Dust Bowl days? You may have heard of them.) when it was REALLY hot.
Yeah, it’s hot here. We’re supposed to hit 108° in St. Louis today. Ouch. This is a particularly hot dry summer…so far. We’ve had them before. In the ’60s, I endured 10 days in a row over 100 degrees in a house with a single window air conditioner and five of us living in that room. Last summer we almost drowned (figuratively speaking). I had to do some extensive engineering to try and control the flooding in the basement. This summer is England’s turn for a rainy summer. Dear GlowBull Warning Religionists. It’s called weather, and there is nothing you can do about it but improvise, adapt and overcome.
PS: Even if it was ‘Climate Change’…there’s still nothing you can do about it. The climate has always changed. It’s what nature does.
