The 1970 World Cup was played in 100 degree weather in Mexico City, during the ice age scare. In 1974, we practiced soccer in 106 degree weather most afternoons at ASU. We had 18 consecutive days over 110 that summer, during the ice age scare.

    Wow, I read the article and that woman is evil as she will work wonders on the gullible reading.

    She brings up how it is winter in Brazil yet doesn’t indicate the average temperature there in the winter.

    She mentions how marathon records are usually broken in under 12 or 13 C weather implying that is should be the norm for the…SUMMER OLYMPICS.

    Was it that cold in China? Nope

    London? Nope

    Athens? Nope

    Atlanta? Nope

    Probably 90% of all summer olympics? Nope.

    But hey, it should be in Brazil and since it isn’t, global warming. Nevermind the forecasts are in the normal range for this time of year in Rio. Shocking that a tropical country would have nice weather all year round. I am sure the athletes there will be dying in temperatures that are the same or lower from wherever they come from.

    These global warming zealots are like religious zealots and it’s not hard to see how religions formed and carried on for thousands of years when you have such dumb people in the population who will believe whatever they are told. Won’t be long before they are claiming 20C temperatures in the summer are blazing and record highs.

    I read the article to see if they gave actual temperatures. Sure enough … in Celsius. I had to do the calculation on the numbers they gave.

    They said the forecast was for 30C on Aug 15, up from 24C on Monday (Aug 8).

    Translates into 86F on Aug 15, up from 75F on Aug 8. That’s an alarming 11 degree increase in a week.

    I must be in real trouble. My forecast says 72 Monday, 92 on Thursday … 20 degree increase in 4 days! OMG, I’m gonna fry!

    Nevermind, I just remembered … that is WEATHER!

      Hey TPG! “I must be in real trouble. My forecast says 72 Monday, 92 on Thursday … 20 degree increase in 4 days! OMG, I’m gonna fry!”

      Exactly! If the trend continues (one of the favorite phrases of people who suffer from long term memory malfunction!) you will be dead before the month is out. :)

      Good luck with that!

    Ok, drink more fluids…I do that…

    I think they get a bonus, for every time they stick “Global Warming” into an article where it doesn’t belong. However she may lose points, because she forgot to edit out “Global Warming” and insert “Climate Change.”

    Check out the “Ice Age Now” site. They have had plenty of winter in South America, with the passes between Argentina and Chile often blocked. Oh, and did she mention the record-setting cold they had in Brazil at the start of June?

    I didn’t think so.
