In short, arteries harden faster in hot weather, and extreme events like recent wildfires in Greece likely exacerbate the problem.

Oreskes Shreds Contradictory Climate Survey

The climate-change denier sites are alive with chortling over a promised new study that says: “Less than half of all published scientists endorse global warming theory.
