Global Weirding

Anyone watching CNN or any other news channel should be aware of the cascade of new weather records from around the world. Record flood here, record drought there. Extreme weather. Weird weather. None of this means anything in itself, of course, but it’s hard to deny how frequently weather records are toppling?

This AP story came out three hours ago: “Long, Hot Summer of Fire, Floods Fits Predictions”

The weather isn’t not all that dramatic. Droughts occur. So do floods. But do most of us still think the latest worst heat wave record on record and/or the latest record rainfall record from wherever will stand for a hundred years? Fifty? Ten?
