In the past it’s been like pulling teeth to have major network Meteorologists go on public record recognizing global warming. However, that’s changing. Perhaps they’ve been asked to gloss over it, or maybe they just weren’t sure- regardless. The evidence is all too clear. The truth is not stoppable any longer- or so it seemed, at least in June, at NBC.
NBC Meteorologist Bill Karins said on Friday , “We’ve never really seen a heat wave like this in the month of June.” Sadly, in a few decades this will just be considered a normal June (see below).
How hot is it? It is so hot that NBC Washington’s Chief Meteorologist, Doug Kammerer, explained on air “If we did not have global warming, we wouldn’t see this.”
