Looks like we are going to make it through another summer without an official KCMO triple digit temp. In the past 8 summers in KCMO we've had only 2 National Weather Service official days of triple digit temps (Sept. 8, 2013 and July 12, 2018). In the period 1953-69 we had more than 65 days of triple digit temps at the official KCMO weather station. Keeping cool in KC!

No 100 degree days in 2019? I remember we went through about a week of Heat Warnings in mid-July and then several similar days in mid-August.

But Climate Change can't be real!
Donald Trump said it wasn't!
He wouldn't lie to us twenty thousand times or more!

Climate Change isn't real,
Mexico paid for the 2,000 miles of the Border wall that were built,
Coronavirus went away when the weather turned warm,
we have the greatest Economy in history,
Unemployment has been eliminated,
anyone who wants a Covid-19 test can get one,
and to all his supporters, he won't cum in your mouth!

You idiot, NOBODY including Trump denies the weather is changing! The disagreement is over whether it’s a natural phenomenon or whether it’s man made or a combination of both!

^^^ @6:47 The Greenland Glaciers record the climate for about 30,000+ years, and the bore corings show NOTHING LIKE THIS EVER HAPPENING BEFORE!

Of course, since you say anyone disagreeing with you is a "idiot", then Science must be an "idiot", because somebody in this matter surely is!

7:29 the planet Earth is much older than that so STFU. A meteor changed the planets weather in the past and killed off a species of animals and man had not a damn thing one to do with that.

^^Shut up dummy. You're a moron. Stop talking. You're unqualified to tell the time. Go away. Read a book. Don't ever speak on this again.

So you dispute that meteors changed the climate, even though this is settled science.

Stick to bananas, Chimpy!

7:29, wrong. The Greenland ice bores show that the climate was warmer just 10,000 years ago, and not much warmer than during the Roman warm period and the medieval warm period. Of course during the Little Ice Age c. 1450 - 1850 it was much much colder.

Anonymous said...

During the Medieval Warming period, Greenland was actually GREEN and was home to many Viking settlements. Subsequent cooling made the island essentially uninhabitable. Don’t act like nothing like this has ever happened before.

Well now professor 7:29, you got baked!
