I think this guy is on to something. I'm not advocating destroying the planet with pollution. I'm thinking scientist may not be as humble and honest as they try and make me believe. I was just wondering to myself the other day, could fluctuations of temperature in recent years be because the sun could possibly emit varying temperature as it burns itself out.

2017 marks one of the deadliest years in Kern River history
Lots of water is a good thing for the most part, but there are problems that it causes too.

The greatest risk of Lyme disease is on the opposite side of the country, but ticks also carry other diseases.

LAST 12 DAYS of JUNE: over 100F
ALL of JULY: over 100F
That's 43 consecutive days over 100F so far.
Weather.com projects the first 14 days of August to go over 100F. So, it looks like over 50 days in a row is pretty much a sure thing, but how many more days beyond that it goes remains to be seen.
