The climate hysterics want you to believe that every bad thing about weather is due to a warming climate, which is caused by human releases of CO2. None of that chain of reasoning is true. One current claim as we have typical heatwaves in many areas of the country, including Minnesota, is that there are more heatwaves and they are more intense. Fortunately there are still a few brave souls capable of actually looking at data and telling the truth. This post from Climate Realism demolishes the heatwave. The hysterics response to these analyses is always to claim they are done by climate deniers, although how you deny climate is beyond me. But this data is official government data, so hard to argue with it. Read all the graphs carefully, what you will see is that the number of very hot days has not overall increased, it is up in some places, down in others, as you would expect. No overall change in maximum temperatures, some increase in minimum temperatures, but that is an urban heat island effect. And if anything, the chart on heatwaves, shows a decline from earlier decades. So as usual, the whackos just lie. (CR Article)
