The National Weather Service website reported "The dangerous heatwave continues across much of the central and eastern USA, with excessive heat and humidity expected to expand into the Ohio Valley and East Coast states for the remainder of the week," Authorities issued heat alerts for more than half the 50 states as a blanket of hot air smothered the country, leaving at least 20 people dead. The heatwave has left states from Texas to Michigan sweltering in temperatures above 100F (37C). Some cities have also been engulfed in smog. The heatwave is estimated to cover a million square miles, affecting 141 million Americans. And yet fools like this commenter on a MSNBC web report continue to spout their malignant nonsense.

“You know, there is a simple solution to this global warming stuff. If you want to believe it, go ahead and believe it. If you don't want to believe it, then don't believe it. As long as everyone acts on what they believe, then that's fine. Notice that those who don't believe it don't ask anything of those who do believe, but those who do believe try force their beliefs on those who don't and force the government to take more control over peoples' lives. That's why those who don't believe have come to realize that all this global warming stuff is just the new socialism.”

I am in the middle of that heat wave. I have lived here for all of my live and this is among the worst summers I can remember.
As for the MSNBC commentator--"Your logic SUCKS!" That logic justifies the 9/11 attacks and Nazism and Pol Pot. And to answer the comment that those who don't believe are not asking anything of us--Oh yes they are. They are asking us to die for their their arrogance and stupidity. Inaction as well as action has consequences.
And for those who don't care because God is coming soon. God will be damned pissed for what you did to his/her creation.

Just as there have been massive plagues and massive cold snaps, there have been massive, brutal heatwaves (that killed hundreds of people) before. Without fail, every generation that it happens too screams, "This is UNPRECEDENTED! The end is near!"

The really silly thing is that there have been heatwaves larger AND deadlier than this current one in days gone by...of course back then there weren't cadres of paranoid, tree-hugging, dirt-munching wannabe druid hipsters trying to pin it all on 'global warming'. Most likely they just thought it was the work of the Devil.
