How pathetic to know there are so many people who still believe global warming is a myth. Europe and Asia took actions for global warming in the 80's, and the United States was one of only few countries which did not take any action. People need to stop listening to those conservatives who don't know science. Just think about why there are so many eco cars, solar panels, etc. to avoid damaging the nature. Those are not only to save money in your pocket.

It's not the day's high temperature that is the problem, but the duration of the heat. It was hot at 9:00 in the morning, and hot at 9:00 at night.

So if we have a record low by one degree from 9 AM to 9 PM, all is good, right? That would be temperature equality - something that we can all feel good about.

How many ice ages have there been? More than one? Hmmm. Then the globe must have warmed up and then cooled off. Could this be a trend? Who started this trend? Oil companies!
