The MSM in America continues to falsely present a picture of new extremes and weather-made catastrophes. Most Californian wildfires are the result of increased population and mindless development in fragile forested areas. The Californian water shortage is wholly the result of officially-encouraged population growth.
For the record, the peak temperature here today in middle California is 79F. The average for July 8th is 88F. The hottest recorded temperature for this day was 113F in 1905.
Meanwhile in the UK I am informed that it is another wet, cool, miserable summer and so much the same as always.
