The current heat wave is not 'normal august' temperatures, and the 1C increase in global average temperatures is not the issue. Never was.
But he is right to say that we should be using more solar power (especially to counter the 'peak use' of power for A/C which is strongest when the sun is brightest.
Not necessarily for base load power (since we are not yet at parity with other forms of green energy).
As to Missouri, it would be better to compare it to about 60% of the Sonoran Desert ( a bit more than the Movaje desert). Use a bit of both with lots of land left over for expansion.
