Whats With The Weather ?

Let me just start by saying I am not a scientist. I don't know a lot about green house gasses or Arctic ice sheets. I can only go by what I see around me. And what I see is not normal. At least not in my lifetime. Are we in trouble ? I don't know. But it makes one think.

Here’s the data on the number of U.S. records broken or tied in the month of July so far:

•All-Time Highest Maximum Temperature: 70
•All-Time Highest Minimum Temperature: 175
•Monthly Highest Maximum Temperature: 125
•Monthly Highest Minimum Temperature: 330
•Daily Highest Maximum Temperature: 2,125
•Daily Highest Minimum Temperature: 4,787
