[ExI] A Nobel laureate and climate change

I was in Oklahoma City for part of the every day over a hundred.
No different than summers when I was a kid in Nebraska.  There
has always been hot/cold dry/wet heavy snow/light snow extremes
having nothing to do with any long term climate change.  Its the
cherry picking festival that happens when local events support
a theory which overall has no substantiated modeling behind it,
is data poor and unable to make correct predictions.
Missouri has had 8 cool or cold winters in a row with six cool
summer, half of one warm summer, and one summer with a hot 
streak similar to those common in the 1970's.  Now we are having
a cool late summer following the short hot streak of this year.

Well, the southern USA states have had their worst wildfire season
ever and Texas is still burning.
I guess the message will get through eventually.

But I suppose that's just a little local fluctuation in temperature?
