Climate change a hoax? Think again.

An unprecedented heat wave, over and over again. Coincidence? No. Déjà vu? Yes. Three times in one week and 19 of the last 20 years. But if British Columbia in Western Canada can sustain temperatures above 110 degrees F, >46 degrees C, it can happen anywhere and will happen everywhere. Humanity beware!

Canada’s record-breaking temperatures are an alarm.

Years of dire warnings about climate change and its effects may have inured some of us to the alarming idea of life on a planet so deeply altered by human behavior that it is increasingly inhospitable to our survival, but the past few days have reminded millions of us what that looks like in practice.... The ideal number of times an 84-year-old heat record should be broken in a week is zero, not three and counting. But this is what climate change has brought us. And we knew it was coming. In 2020, a study published in Science Advances warned of rising temperatures and the risks they pose to humans. The research article, titled “The emergence of heat and humidity too severe for human tolerance,” found that “reported occurrences of extreme TW [wet-bulb temperature] have increased rapidly at weather stations and in reanalysis data over the last four decades and that parts of the subtropics are very close to the 35°C survivability limit, which has likely already been reached over both sea and land.

These trends highlight the magnitude of the changes that have taken place as a result of the global warming to date."

Expect worse before better. Enjoy the ride.

To think that global heating is a hoax, you would have to disbelieve in science. Sadly, there is a lot of the latter these days. There are also a lot of vested interests who are exploiting that ignorance.

It is definitely not a hoax.

This story has some good information about the correlation with extreme weather events:

And yes, sadly, it is only going to get worse.

The real hoax is the claim by governments that they are taking sufficient action to mitigate global heating.
