Even the record breaking heat streak can't necessarily be blamed on Global Warming without considering a much broader time period, because climate deals with averages rather than extremes.
we have never seen this before. this hot, this severe - fires so early - so many. Colorado can get harsh and hot - but the key is "records" - record heat , fires and droughts - what happens when much of colorado gets too hot and dry to exist? no farming , cattle , hunting - water - The way global warming is changing colorado and this planet, it may not be in the too distant future. It's not even july and it hit 105 in today. funny been around awhile - never seen Colorado this hot this early - seems like it could be even hotter then last year - maybe it will hit 115- 120 this year. At what temp will people start moving underground??
Denver has had a total of 75 recorded days in it's hisdtory with temps above 100. This summer we have already had more than 10 days of temps above 100.
Global Warming is simple science. I don't care if people want to deny basic scientific fact by claiming global warming is a hoax, but it's effects are already becoming apparant.
