The journalists have always had ''silly season' stories every Summer. It is a known phenomenon to most of them. But AGW will do little to change it. A slight warming (1C) doesn't make the difference..

What exactly did I deny?? The story is about how heat brings out the crazies. I noted that it has done so for generations. But summer heat is NOT the issue here. Climate change is much more concerning the weather extremes and the necessity of predictable climate to preserve our investment in fixed assets such as coastal cities, crop distribution and success, etc.

You deny that EVERY bad thing that happens can be traced back to "ACDDCGCD".
True believers know all they have to do is google GW and 'anything'(as long as it's bad) and one will find a "scientific paper" on the connection. "Crazy" people and heat is a GW phenom.
