    The heat wave is bad but the forest fires in Russia are compounding the air quality problem with soot from the outlying forested areas.
    The El Niño is over. The rapid cooling of ENSO Region 1+2 with anomalies of 1°C or below normal (last monthly figure was -1.67°C) has often coincided with above normal temperatures in Russia.

    The news keeps getting worse. Fires are threatening to overrun several nuclear facilities near the Moscow area. At this time, the fires appear to be contained.

    Today saw the temperature again reach 98° in Moscow. The previous all-time record high was 98°. During the hot spell, Moscow's temperature has reached or exceeded 98° on 10 days. In addition, there were some nearby thunderstorms. It is unclear whether those storms triggered additional fires.

    What about the thousands of frozen dolphins and gators in Argentina? Does no one care about them???
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Obviously, trolls who don't know the difference between summer and winter care about them.

    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    We have a term for that. "Climate, changes".
