Gloating About the Climate
As has been pointed out everywhere, July 2016 was the warmest month we’ve seen, ever. As a sane person, I understand that climate change is real and remains a pressing issue.
It’s always nice to see evidence of the things we believe, but can we stop gloating already? First, saying “hottest month” rather than “warmest month” seems a little excessive. Second, a few warm months on their own don’t mean much. If for some reason it would have been a little cooler last month, climate deniers would have been all over it and we’d have harumphed and cried “statistical anomaly!” all the way home.
Ease up a bit, is what I’m saying. Gloating about suggestive evidence is poor form.
