Climate change deniers like to say that global warming has stopped and that the average global temperature has been dropping for the last 10 years. This, of course, is total nonsense. Just today I was reading about the heat wave and the thunderstorms that hit last week and it caused me to wonder.
If global warming has stopped, why do we keep setting new heat records? Temperature records have been falling all over the country this summer and the forecast is for it to continue. How could that be, if we are cooling?
