Heatwave edition! Climate crock of the week!
Peter Sinclair socks it to the wingnuts.
For those of you who might think that this is confusing climate and weather, not at all.
Just as the extreme weather events of this last winter were caused by substantially warmer oceans and lakes, the quite well predicted el Nino is going to make things into super scorchers.
We were warming even when things should have been cooling, if not for the emissions. Right now, we are still adding warming even when things would be getting hotter anyway if not for the emissions. Strap in kids - it will get much worse from here.
