An observation of mine on the weather/climate change

When a cold snap or a blizzard hits the US deep South, those people who are climate change skeptics are quick to denounce “global warming” or “climate change” as being fake, or hooey, or so on.

I’ve not heard that same claim however over the worst heat wave to grip North American in well over 2o years. There’s either a lot of silence out there, or they NOW embrace the idea that it’s a “random weather event”.

That’s called trying to have the climate change argument both ways.

    So 20 years ago it was just as bad?
    And in 1936 it was just as bad?
    So how is this a sign of anything?

    Wanna explain the difference between average and normal?

    Actually it was further back than that. According to Wikipedia the worst heatwave was in 1936.

    “The 1936 North American heat wave was the most severe heat wave in the modern history of North America. It took place in the middle of the Great Depression of the 1930s, and caused catastrophic human suffering and an enormous economic toll. The death toll exceeded 5,000, and huge numbers of crops were destroyed by the heat and lack of moisture. Many state and city record high temperatures set during the 1936 heat wave still stand to this day. The heat wave followed one of the coldest winters on record.”

    I don’t think he disproved the whole GW theory, it was never a theory in the first place.

    You mean there was a bad heat wave 20 years ago? Before global warming?

    I think you just disproved the entire GW theory.
