Washington, DC is back down to 85 degrees again today — after two weeks of terrifyingly scorching volcano hell heat worse than anything that even the space between Chris Christie’s thighs have ever encountered, of course. But still: It’s 85 now. Al Gore is back to being fat and gay again, by all reasonable estimates. And yet here come the libtard science trolls to ruin everyone’s fun, again: “Scorching temperatures in June’s second half helped the continental United States break its record for the hottest first six months in a calendar year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said on Monday.”
Clearly this is an aberration: Jesus was on vacation to Neptune for June and forgot to turn down the temperatures. It happens. But these fanatical scientists suggest that climate change might have played some part in the hot tempies:
Climate change spurred by carbon dioxide emissions may not be the primary cause, but these extreme conditions are consistent with what scientists see as a “new normal,” Crouch said by telephone.
“It’s hard to pinpoint climate change as the driving factor, but it appears that it is playing a role,” he said. “What’s going on for 2012 is exactly what we would expect from climate change.”Related video
Nice, try, Mao, because that’s probably your name, “Mao,” but your Wonkette gets all of its science news from Washington Post climatologist George Will, who explained yesterday that of course it’s hot, it’s Summer.
WILL: How do we explain the heat? One word: summer. I grew up in central Illinois in a house that had air conditioning. What is so unusual about this? . . . We’re having some hot weather. Get over it.
Yes, sir. Don’t want to be hot, America? Then don’t wear blue jeans, either.
