Brace yourselves, folks. Don’t know if you’ve heard this, but it’s late July, soon to be August, and the AP reports that temperatures are … in the 90’s and some 100’s! It’s not too soon to panic!

I could be wrong that “HEAT WAVE!” is the new media scare ? la “BIRD FLU!”

It could be more in line with the “offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements,” “[FILL IN ALARMIST AND ARMAGEDDONIST FACTOID HERE],” and “over-representation of factual presentations” inclination toward global-warming fearmongering.
