Response to groundloop (Reply #14)

39. I think you missed one thing, though: This study is an extreme outlier.....and a poorly done one....

at that, from the looks of it.

The truth is, pretty much every model agrees that summers will get hotter as the world's average temperature goes higher. Okay? But not by nearly as much as what has been posited here: Mora has basically claimed, from what it appears(unless he has failed to be entirely clear), that by 2047, in many places the average summer will be hotter than historical records, with just a 3*C temperature rise(keep in mind, 3*C is only about 5.4*F or so). In Los Angeles for example, that would entail a rise of as much as 28*F from today's average hottest month! Which doesn't make sense. Even if we were to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume that he meant averages of hottest months(here in Dallas, that would be about 107*F),and not records, it still wouldn't add up 100%.
