    hottest day records already broken in a number of European countries this year, in 2 heatwaves… UK record likely to fall today.

      There was no heatwave. There was ONE day of warmer weather, and it is highly doubtful that records were actually broken.

      Bad placement of sites, urban warming, plain fabrication of the measurements.

      And even if there was .. SO WHAT. !

      What don’t you comprehend about the effects of a meandering jet stream. There were also MANY record cold temperature set in other places at the same time.

      Its also cooler now than during most of the last 10,000 years.

      You are a MINDLESS, IGNORANT twerp, with zero comprehension of ANYTHING to do with climate or weather.

      And you are destined to remain forever ignorant, because you have no choice in the matter.

      And abject griffool, forever.

      poor little griff.

      Anyone looking at the actual WEATHER around the world would immediately see this TINY patch of warm weather over UK, France and Germany.

      Sure enough to make little griffool whimper and wail in utter and complete despair, though, isn’t it. :-)

      Probably a stagnant cell because the wind turbines have removed all the energy from the air flow. ;-)

    Wikipedia still shows 109 for Midway Airport (105 at O’Hare).

    WOW, let’s all bake in those CO2 rays !
