One hot month in Montana, and global warming is real:
The blistering heat of this past July will be the norm in less than 50 years if global warming continues as expected, a University of Montana ecologist and climate expert predicts.
Steve Running, a UM forestry professor who was one of the authors of a seminal international paper on climate change released this spring, said forecasts predict an average July in 2050 will be like the withering, record-breaking July of 2007 — with triple digit temperatures common.
“You can imagine that, little by little, over the next five decades it will become more and more common to have months like we had in July,” he said.
Imagine your head off, Professor. By the way, isn’t it called global warming? Let’s check recent temperatures outside Montana. We’ve got major coldage happening in Australia, Chile, New Zealand, England and South Africa. And now in France:

Temperatures on the Atlantic coast have been on average two or three degrees Celsius below seasonal averages, said Jean-Marc Le Gallic from Meteo France.
French chat shows have featured experts who are predicting a spike in the number of cases of depression due to a lack of sun exposure.
Among the depressed: warmenist hysterics. On the up side:
