Enjoying This Warm Spring? Then Get Ready for HOT Summer!

 Better not get too comfortable in this Spring’s Summer Heat!  If Europe’s harshest winter in decades is an indicator, the warm Spring heat now may blast this coming Summer all to––well, you know where.

 It’s more Weirdsville:  i.e. states east of the Mississippi break all heat records, while Arizona is overcome with an aberrant winter storm and Hawaii is pelted with unheard of tornadoes and hail stones.

 Jason Samenow of the Capital Weather Gang reports:  “In some places, temperatures have been an eye-popping 30-40 degrees above normal, nearing or surpassing the warmest temperatures ever recorded so early in the season.  Since Sunday, an amazing 943 new record highs have been broken or tied across the U.S. compared to just 9 record lows.”

 Writing for climatecentral.org, Andrew Freedman says:  “The March heat wave continues to shatter longstanding records from the Upper Midwest to the Northeast, with more than 2,200 warm temperature records set during the month.”
 In U.S. weather histories dating back to the 19th century, this March heat wave breaks records because of  “the wide geographic scope of the heat wave, the duration of the event and the time of year when it is occurring.”

 Deke Arndt from the National Climatic Data Center reports, “This will be a March event that we’ll look back on as one of the big March events of modern history.”

 However, Freedman says that this extremely warm spring forebodes an extremely hot summer:  “The weather pattern resulting in this heat wave is remarkably similar to ones that lead to prolonged periods of extreme heat during the summertime, with a huge dome of high pressure blocking the eastward movement of storms and cooler air off the Pacific.

 “Some meteorologists are studying whether global warming is leading to more such ‘blocking patterns,’ and there are some indications that this may be the case . . .”  Ahh., there we have it.  The same Global Warming winter from which Europe is still recovering, will now bring the U.S. an unrelenting horrible summer!

 Yes, it is Weirdsville, but as Joe Romm says in “Climate Progress:” “Unfortunately, it’s all too real — and [its] just going to get worse and worse until we act to sharply reduce emissions of industrial carbon pollution.”  Ohey vey, Weirdsville is nothing but Global Warming all over again.

 How much Summer heat will it take before Christians start calling upon God for His help in stopping Global Warming?  Or will the believers of this age be as Christian messages rile:  “They are all hot as an oven; . . . there is none among them that calleth unto Me (Hosea 7: 7).”  Is that the question, or is it the answer?
