What's happening w/ extreme rainfall seems clear. Warmer air and warmer oceans are supercharging the moisture in landfalling tropical weather systems. It is extraordinarily unlikely this flurry of excessive rain events would have been this extreme w/o climate change. (5/5)

BREAKING: NOAA has sided with President Trump, rather than its own scientists:

U.S. to be coldest region in world relative to normal over next week. Please note rest of world will be much warmer than normal lest anyone try to claim pocket of cold in U.S. debunks global warming, which they will invariably and irresponsibly do.

NEW: It was 84 degrees near the Arctic Ocean this weekend as carbon dioxide hit its highest level in human history:

The four warmest years in recorded history for the planet have occurred in the last four years, including 2018 - which ranked fourth warmest. You might have heard this direct from NOAA and NASA if the government was open and you listened to their excellent scientists.

Re-write: Brutal and brief cold blast in Northeast will shatter some records. Most of the rest of the world is warmer than normal. This year will be among the warmest years on record for the planet, again. Global warming is indisputable.
