i'd like to throw this article in the face of every global warming skeptic and scoffer, but not because of what you think.
every time it gets a little chilly, these people start in on the absurdity of the climate warming theory. in their minds, one cold day disproves the findings of decades of science and research.
of course, having record days of heat are no direct proof of global warming either. it's supposed to be gradual and its causes and effects are still unclear.
but going by the doubters' logic, this heat wave proves that global warming is reality. case closed 🙂
