Hot, dry - and burning

The summer reality that young earth creationists (and right wingers) tell us is 'fake news' by 'leftists' or 'secularists'. It's happening right NOW.

According to them Genesis 8:22 rules out the climate reality of the 21st century (but apparently rules 'in' a 'post-flood ice age'). You couldn't make it up. (But they DID.)

'' ...Heatwaves are nothing new for the UK.

I was struggling through my A-level exams during the blazing weather of 1976 when for 15 days running temperatures were above 32C somewhere in the UK.

This year has not matched that. So far, at least.

But since those overheated schooldays the planet has changed. The average temperature has risen.

And scientists are convinced that we are starting to feel the effects of humanity's greenhouse gases warming the atmosphere. They point to the multiple heatwaves under way in different parts of the globe at the same time.

While parts of the UK are sweltering, there's stunning warmth in Scandinavia even inside the usually chilly Arctic Circle and in Japan dozens of people have reportedly died from record temperatures.

The latest research into the future of the climate does not say that we will get heatwaves every year. The next few summers may well be cool.

But studies do suggest that heatwaves will become more frequent, and that when they happen they will last longer than they do now...''.
