The ‘hottest year ever’ is a lie.
Temperatures have been FALLING for the past 8,000 years
By Ray Kraft
Short term variations, local record hots and colds, don’t mean much, that’s just weather. What matters is long term global trend lines over decades, centuries, millennia, eons, epochs.
The only ‘normal’ in climate is constant change
Some places are hotter than average and some places are cooler than average on any particular day (I don’t use ‘normal’ because the only ‘normal’ in climate is constant change).
These are not ‘hot’ temps. Below 60 degrees F most people start putting on sweaters and jackets. At 58 degrees F in your living room you’re probably gonna turn up the heat! It is a good temp for longer term wine storage.
