There have certainly been warmer summers in the past...long ago. Was that global warming then? Also, one "record setting" summer is going to prove the theory of global warming? How is that acceptable in proving it while recent record setting winters don't count to disprove it?

One blowhard, Rush Limbaugh said on his show the other day that this heat wave is a government created conspiracy and there is no such thing as the heat index.

You cant make this stuff up...
So you listen to Rush, yet you think he's a blowhard? I'm guessing Rush said that with tongue firmly planted in cheek, as he says a LOT of things facetiously just to gut under the skin of left wing nutjobs.

I'm no republican, and I'm certainly not a conservative, but I can see and appreciate his shtick from a mile away, ever since the first time I listened to him back in 1986 when he was on local radio in Sacramento. I just think it's really funny when libs get all worked up by what he says and they don't even listen to his show to hear the context of what he said.

Thanks for the link, Charles. I hadn't heard that percentage figure before.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up:
