    So, after a really cool spring in the UK, July arrives with a heat wave.
    Cooler than normal = weather
    Warmer than normal = climate change

    I remember, several years ago, Drudge used to frequently link to your articles.

    Now, Drudge, taken over by leftists, has its headline link to a leftist Guardian article crowing about “record highs expected” in the UK. Sad.

    “It’s not the heat; it’s the humidity.”

    Which will be very low. Under 20%.

    You can reset the alarm clock.

    This needs to be corrected though:

    “The day really entitled to the proud distinction of being the hottest of the nineteenth century, in London, was July 28, 1885, when 162 degrees Fahrenheit was registered in the open air.
