The average high temperature this past July at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport was 92.0º Fahrenheit. See here. That’s the lowest average high temperature for July since I began keeping statistics in 1990. (The highest is 102.3º—in 1998.) Why is this not evidence against global warming? You know damn well that if the average high temperature in this area had been the highest since 1990, it would be considered evidence in favor of global warming. As I said the other day, the sign that global warming has become an ideology (in the pejorative sense) is that nothing is allowed to count against it. That’s why I use the term “global warmism.” The “ism” signifies that it’s a doctrine or ideology rather than a falsifiable scientific hypothesis.
