About how, when it comes to climate change, scientists and journalists increasingly sound like carnival carnies shouting out for the sideshow, rather than actual scientists and journalists? I thought you might enjoy this:
It's from the current weather report out of Columbus. The map indicates the area we live in (circled in red), and the Heat Advisory, indicating an excessive heat watch for severe heat. Note the forecasted high temp - 79 degrees. Granted, yesterday did end up getting pretty warm, with the mid 80s and a pretty high humidity. I'd say it felt around the high 80s or low 90s at the hottest.
Right now, the humidity is 62, which can be a bit sticky, but since it's only in the high 70s, that's not too bad. Plus there is a slight breeze out of the north, making it more than comfortable. It might get up to 79 by the late afternoon or so, but I don't see it near the high 80s, which is the least I think of for a heat advisory.
But this is the news. Again, on the morning news shows, they focused on the Heat Index. claiming it could make it feel upwards of the 90s. But they're soldering on with the Heat Advisory, despite it being a pleasantly warm summer day at 77 degrees with a slight breeze. We call that brainwashing.
Also, it's funny because that is often the example given for someone who wants something perfect. You know, 'apparently you can't function unless it's sunny with a the high 70s and a cool northerly breeze.' Meaning perfect conditions are demanded by you. Except now, those once perfect conditions apparently indicate extreme heat advisory.
