108 F in Paris. Absolutely unheard of. Manmade climate change is no longer an abstract concept, it is here, it is now, and it's causing tremendous property damage, lost crops and deaths worldwide with increasing frequency.
Those dastardly Europeans need to fix their climate, it's gotten out of control.

Not one European country is compliant with their commitments....they need to learn from us to reduce pollution as we have led the world the last 2 years in reductions since we got out of their theft agreement.

We have three of those as well. They work wonderfully here in Colorado, in the rare event we need to use them.

Air conditioning can be carbon neutral -- run it off of solar, wind, geothermal, nuclear or other non-fossil fuel. Cars? China is the world's largest market for electric cars. GM is spending $11 Bil on developing electric vehicles, including trucks. Just about every other major car manufacturer worldwide is going all in for electric power.

I see this fallacy a lot from climate deniers: they say we have to sacrifice our lifestyle if we give up fossil fuel energy. We don't. California is undergoing a massive shift from fossil fuel electricity to green power. I haven't had to alter my lifestyle one bit.

As usual, a heatwave, climate change or AGW.

A blizzard, just weather.
