Canada shouldn't have to worry about Tornadoes too much. Tornadoes rarely form fully over forests.

The temperatures on that map are cool for July in Canada. We usually look to the mid 30's or 40's, in the summer, at least for a certain stretch of the summer.edit on 9-7-2012 by Unity_99 because: (no reason given)

Yes...temperatures ranging from 92-96 are considered a "cold front" here in Texas especially in July

I am an average man and decided to look into global warming with the average man look- simple max temperature for that day. I went from 2011-1988 and randomly picked 3 months and looked up their temps. I am not sure how the scientists do it or what math they use, but I figure if its GLOBAL warming it will affect us all.

Looking at these dates its was just as hot in 88 as 2011 with a cooling period in the early 90's.

We are stuck on a "it shouldn't be this way" trend in human thinking. I am glad that I was not around during the peak of the last ice age, or back when we were warmer.
We have to adapt to the climate, not fix it as some suggest.

This is what is wrong with hyperbole. There is zero proof for your assertion concerning global warming and the idea humankind can impact change on the climate. This is first-class bull cookies.
The fact remains it has been this hot before in the very same places now experiencing the abnormal heat wave. Newscasts utilize words such as, "shattering," when in fact a single degree or two is the difference. It is the nature of sensationalizing news reporting and the nature of the money-grabbing environmentalists to spin these reports for all they are worth.

We've ALREADY CHANGED THE CLIMATE. Only the stupid/ignorant suggest that we just continue what we're doing and try to ride it out. The intelligent say, "Hey... we're altering the climate, it's going to have mostly negative consequences, we should probably stop." It's called making a wise decision. Just because climate changed in the past doesn't mean that it's all fine and dandy when humans rapidly cause it now. We're playing with serious fire and I don't think you've ever sat down and truly pondered the seriousness of what we're doing... it's real, IT'S REALLY HAPPENING, and this is the only planet we have.
