Yes, that is cetainly an anomoly...just like Portland hit 116 degrees last June (summer had barely begun), which beat the old record for highest temp ever in Portland by ten degrees.

Think of it...ten degrees higher than the prior all time record for any day of the year in Portland.

Temp in Pakistan hit 120 degrees already.


A simple illustration. Fill your bathtub with water and put a solid large block of ice at the opposite end. Measure how long you can stand it before it gets really cold.

Test 2. Take the same block of ice and chop it up. Put all the chopped ice in the bathtub and get in.

Which tub water was colder faster and which ice is melting faster. (both the same tub even though the ice is melting)

It just to show obvious shit isn't as obvious as people make things out to be.

anyone trotting out weather phenomenon as indication of climate change is just demonstrating they don't know the difference between anecdotal and real evidence. You would think that since it is possible to make the case either way with various weather events, people would just stop. Hey, I'm human, I noticed the Oregon heat wave and said 'wow'. That was after I noticed the Texas cold wave and said 'wow'

In our area people are wondering why this Spring has been so cold. If I was a journalist, I'd think about touting this as evidence of a new Ice Age on the way, but would have to dismiss that idea ... wouldn't make it into print, doesn't fit the favored narrative.

So, you want to kill all the news media always trying link some agenda to some event? That would be the left and the right.

I kinda see your point, but the number of eyeballs that read someone's personal battle with lung cancer, is going to be 1000 times what a scholarly article is going to produce. If you want to make sure even more of the public has no idea what's going on in the world we could do that.

Technically, they should mention that specific events aren't proof of anything. But not to mention it at all, seems neglectful until the science community reverses positions.

We are having a warm spring here in south Florida. Temperatures 5 to 8 degrees above normal most of the spring. I don't know what the cause is and I don't care. It is wonderful to be warm.
We are all going to die, why procrastinate?

Australian voters have delivered a sharp rebuke to the center-right government, ending nine years of conservative rule, in favor of the center-left opposition that promised stronger action on climate change.

Australians were pretty upset about the lockdown, weren’t they? Though green stuff may have been part of the election, it looks like there was a lot of dissatisfaction with the incumbent government.

The “winning” party did not get enough seats to take total control without working with other factions.

The linked story is just a tad over slanted towards one issue.

If I remember correctly, the vast majority of the Australians live on the coast.
