  • More Light On The Great Russian Heat Wave

    • Date: 20/08/10

    Last week we presented our analysis of the causes behind this summer’s record-breaking heat wave in western Russia. We summarized the situation thus: But global warming theory doesn’t come anywhere close to explaining why it’s so darn hot this summer in Moscow. Long-term observations suggest a more basic cause—an unusual and unprecedented (at least since 1950) confluence […]
