Friday, July 22 2011: 81% this morning in Fairview. Yesterday was the 20th day in a row over 100% here! 100% is not abnormally hot here in Texas, but the 100% temperatures day in and day out wear you down. My plants in the garden are having the same problem. I fear some of them will not survive the Summer.
I have been watching the Tour de France every morning before work this month and the weather is strikingly different over there. Yesterday snow was falling at the finish line several hours before the riders crossed the finish line.
The climate may not be warming, but, if not, why are the extremes of weather so much more pronounced than in the past? IMHO there is no way 7 Billion people cannot affect the environment!
