    That's the current conservative position on climate change (global warming), isn't it? That's it's all made up somehow?

    Or is this massive heat wave a harbinger of things to come? Maybe we're looking at the new normal. Maybe we'll one day look back fondly when the temperature only topped out at 105 degrees.

    I've included a poll question. Please note that the question is different from the subject line.

    Wait a minute...

    I thought that weather and climate were supposed to be two different things. :eusa_whistle:

    "Climate Change"? Of course! That's been happening for Billions of years.

    "Global Warming"? No, that's just a sophisticated method of separating you from your money. Pure Snake Oil.

    I'm trying to remember the last time (if ever) that I've seen a heat wave that lasted this long over such a large area, especially seeing as how it doesn't appear to be cooling down at night.

    No more so than the gazillions of other heat waves over the course of the last 4,500,000,000 years.

    1995. in NE Wisconsin I suffered through 21 days of straight 90/90's. That was the longest stretch of those temps though it only broke records on a few days because it WAS in July and August!

    That winter in January 96 we had 20 days of -10 degree temps. That was the high mind you. The air was so damn cold it felt like water, and I worked outside in it.

    that's from personal memory though.

    In Illinois during July 1936 (most of Midwest was under this heat wave) here are some facts from selected cities:
