I keep driving home the point that September used to be a very hot month in the US. On this date in 1939, a spectacular heatwave covered the eastern half of the US, with Indiana reaching 107 degrees. Temperatures this hot are incomprehensible now.

    I wrote a letter
    http://www.jsonline.com/story/opinion/readers/2016/09/01/letters-friday-sept/89748236/
    to the Milwaukee Journal two weeks ago, and I’ve gotten some feed back. One lady went on the internet and looked up the heat wave of 1936. She was impressed. Mostly people just told me they saw the letter. My neighbor stopped me while I was mowing the lawn, we talked about it, he said that you can’t bring the topic up in ordinary conversation because some people are rather rabid in their beliefs that Global Warming is a problem.

    Holding the belief that Global Warming is a problem is politically correct.

    This morning in Yuma, AZ, it was 66 degrees at my house at 6 am. I don’t recall being able to open up the house in the morning this early in September to take advantage of the cool temps going back to 1999. I thought the lows were supposed to be getting higher, not lower. I strongly suspect Septembers are not getting warmer here, either.
