I was there in 94 or 95 doing vehicle testing and we were supposed to get a break after 2 weeks but it was too hot to fly out. We would put in a gallon of gasoline at 60 degrees and the car wouldn't start because of vapor lock what a pain the testing was. The Chrysler proving grounds weren't finished and had few places with AC. The fuel storage farm was the best.

Climate change person: "There is global warming, look how hot it was outside today."

Average person on the street: "That is not true, we have had some very cool days recently."

Climate change person: "You can't use daily temperatures as an indicator denier!"

Scientists tell us that a heat dome is evidence of climate, but a similar run of cold days in the winter is just weather. To me, that's crap. Either they are both evidence of climate or they are both just weather.

It's because Trump didn't sign the Paris Accords.


Damn you Trump!

DAMN YOU!





It may be 117, but when you factor in the wind chill, it's actually 7 billion degrees.

So drink water.

The Military thinks climate change is real and a potential security problem.

The Right wing uses "no climate change" data from the fossil fuel industry.

I think I'd rather believe the military than business agenda bought and paid for "scientists"

I was out in it all day. It sucks, but it is normal. We used to actually get monsoons, our rainy period, but after the city ballooned, they aren't as frequent. I believe all of the pavement, and concrete from all of the construction seems to be trapping the heat. Storing it, not letting the heat out in the evening. I've live here since '87, so I'm used to it. Well, as much as you can be. Stay inside when you can, and keep hydrated. If you travel out of the city, say into the farming areas at night, the temperature drops, not 30 degrees, but enough to notice.

I agree, they are called hear sinks and it is one of the reasons large cities can cause micro climates. Cycles come and go, horrible winters-hot ass summers. It is all part of having a planet with no central heating or cooling.

The monsoons were like clockwork once. You could look out to the east everyday around 3pm and see the thunderheads growing. Now the storm has to be an absolute monster just to make it into town. The storms are less frequent, but they are more powerful it seems. Totally agree about the heat sink.

Our spring, to me, seemed milder this year. But, like you said, the cycles come and go.

The wind is the worst part. Nothing like sweating and having the 7 billion degree wind just boil it off your skin.

and just think, it only took more than a HUNDRED YEARS of carpeting that place with concrete, asphalt, buildings and cars and everything that traps heat.


no wonder.

One of the main questions to accurate heat/temp gathering is the fact that the temp probes may be in the same place but the place is now a cement parking lot surrounded by more cement and brick and not a developing city in the 1970's and 1980's.

Are they the same type of thermometers?
Are they calibrated?
If so, who does it and how often?
If they are different thermometers, then where is the variance study done on the differences, if any?
Who does the data gathering? (mostly volunteers)
Do they do the same data collection at the same time every day?
Are they vetted?
Where are the studies on locational variances?


These are the questions I always ask.

I have been living here now for 5years and have been vacationing here in the summer for over 20 years prior and I love it, the heat is what it is in a desert, hot and the only thing people need to do is keep a hat on and have plenty of water.

All very good questions, and the only reason we need ask them is the $$$ that is connected. If the money was not there, we wouldn't even be talking about this.

That was also Obama's military. Under Obama, every government agency was directed to call MMGW some kind of threat, disaster, or impact to their department.
