Yes, it's been a hot summer - but certainly not everywhere.
"Lamestream" media outlets have gone bonkers with an announcement from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that "more than 3,000 temperature records have been matched or broken in the past week, continuing a trend that left us with the hottest June on record."
The first question is, 3,000 out of how many potential locations? 100,000? Half-a-million?
The second question is, who's keeping the records?
And of course, the mainstream media insist, all of this heat is because of human-caused climate change.
In other words, you are the problem.
The truth be told, my friend, Joe Bastardi, has just crunched the numbers illustrating that half of the U.S experienced above normal temperatures in June, while the other half was below normal.
In the meantime, in places like Scandinavia, June was one of the coldest on record.
At the end of the day, all of these thermal ups and downs are perfectly normal. As I explain in my best-seller, "Climategate," the warmest decade on record in the United States was the 1930s, with 22 of our now 50 states recording highest temperatures ever during those years.
Examples include 110 degrees in Millsboro, Del., on July 21, 1930; 118 degrees at Keokuk, Iowa, on July 20, 1942; and Steele, N.D., reaching 121 degrees on July 6, 1936. Thirty-eight states recorded all-time highs before 1960. Likewise, the hottest year on record in the U.S. was 1934.
