Heatwave that killed hundreds due to climate change

A study released this week found that last week’s devastating heatwave that killed hundreds in Oregan, Washington, and Canada would have been “virtually impossible” if not for climate change.

In a  “rapid attribution” study an international team of 27 scientists examined the links between human-induced climate change and the heatwave.

 They found that the blistering temperatures were made at least 150 times more likely to occur because of climate change.

One of the study authors a climate scientist at the University of Oxford told reporters: “Heatwaves [are] how climate change kills us today …Basically, without climate change, this event would not have happened.” The expert said other climate attribution studies are making clear that “heatwaves are increasing in likelihood by orders of magnitude more than any other type of extreme event.”

What we used to call "Summer" is now a cataclysmic event according to the global warming nut jobs.

The ignorance and devotion to stupidity on the right is no longer mind-boggling. Always been said..."a little knowledge is dangerous". They possess a little knowledge. Fact....Greenland is really now green for the first time in hundreds of years. Fact....the Antarctic is melting and falling apart at a rate never seen before. Fact....the northwest passage is ice free earlier each year and for longer periods each year. Fact ....sea levels have risen significantly in the last 20 years at a rate unseen in any of our life times before. All are indicators of the impact of unending fossil fuel use. More easily understood for the simpletons should be the words of the fossil fuel industry itself. Recently recorded conversations of lobbyists confirm their knowledge of the problem, but also their devotion to profits....you know....capitalism at its best!! So idiots like snake pliskin and oh ya may not live to see the full results of climate degradation, but it will be witnessed by their unfortunate children and grandchildren. The unfortunate truth is that sp and oh ya have every right to be ignorant. Sad though that they exercise that right so vigorously daily.

Observer, we are in a cycle. Four factors determine global temperatures: carbon dioxide levels, volcanic eruptions, Pacific El Niño pattern, and the Sun’s activity. Every year about the same time there is a great temperature increase in various parts of the world -a heat wave-and every year the enviro-nazies cry climate change. Then, in the winter we routinely get this frigid period and again, cries of climate change … we must take action immediately or in x years the world will end (reminiscent of Al Gore). He was wrong in his prediction and the climate alarmists are wrong on theirs today. These cycles of brief hot periods in the summer and frigid periods in the winter are pretty “non-climate change” or a need for alarm. A degree or two higher one year during a brief period or a degree or two lower another hardly constitutes the world ending. The sun is our furnace and what cycle it is in is out of our control. As for C02, its current level is around 415 ppm—pretty normal. And when you consider greenhouse gas, CO2 levels are pretty insignificant in comparison but don’t let that stop the crazies pushing the Climate Change agenda.

I hope those distinguished scientists Snake Pliskin and Oh Ya are still around when the world burns up

The bull poop just never ends with these nutbars. I read one now says the condo that collapsed in Florida was from climate change. Well i guess if it was not climate change then it has to be coronavirus. What else could it be

These people can not be more stupid because they cant. Of course there is climate change. Look at Jan 1st for the last 100 years. It is different every time. Duh!! This is a scare tactic that the democrats from the US use to scare you into submission and justify more laws and to take more of your hard earned money. I mean....these idiots can not even spell Oregon but they are going to tell you all about them. Get a clue all you left-leaning willows. Some people are so gullible that they will believe anything the scientists "government employees" tell them. Who do you think these "scientists" work for? In one way or another, it is the government. The sun is shining; Time to wake up.
