    What’s behind the heatwaves impacting the United States?
    Millions of Americans are under heat warnings as the nation braces for record-breaking temperatures and dangerous heat.



    Climate change caused by the burning of fossil fuels is a global phenomenon that is certainly playing a role in what the US is experiencing, scientists say

    Virtually all of the United States has experienced above-normal temperatures in the past week. More dangerously hot weather is in the forecast this week.

    More than 85 million Americans are under excessive heat warnings or heat advisories issued by the National Weather Service. Excessive heat, severe storms and flooding are all expected this week.

    What's behind the heatwaves ? Fossil fuel burning, obviously- but also the LIES planned by corporations to nurture Climate Denial;

    The cause? Weather. That has been changing for millions of years now.

    Hehasneverlearned! has delusions of knowing anything. Weather doesn't change climate unless you mean, "Gee, it's hot today". Climate changes weather. Natural forces like solar and volcanic energy affect climate but the science says human forces since the onset of the Industrial Revolution have been the primary ones. The fact that both natural and human made forces have impacted climate, and more political capital being in one than the other, is why the debate over them is ongoing.

    Hot air. Next!

    Human activity does not affect the weather. To think that it does is the epitome of ignorance and arrogance.

    Oh big deal. There's the HAARP project, too. Still inconsequential when it comes to worldwide weather.

    Btw, cloud seeding releases CO2 into the atmosphere. That's kind of a gimme.

    Just an example of humans affecting the weather- to contradict your claim.

    Incidentally, anybody denying anthropogenic global warming at this point in time really is a candidate for the rubber room.

    The facts are that millions of people are retreating from the horrors of climate change, fire and flood. You're probably sitting in front of your air-conditioner as you ignore them.

    The unusual part of all this is we are seeing a heat wave in North America, Europe, and Asia at the same time. It is not unusual for there to be a heat wave in one place, but this is a heat wave everywhere.

    A good observation. I haven't seen an explanation yet.

    The same fires and floods than have been around millions of years. It is weather.

    It's time that we tattooed a big ' D' on Deniers' heads. As we watch our homes burn we need to identify the perpetrators to target with our anger.
    It's not entirely their fault, mind- they are victims of an organized corporate campaign.
