FWIW, this is the first summer my arms got painfully sunburned just watering plants for about 15 minutes at around 9 am. Didn't think I needed sunblock for just that little bit. I was mistaken. And I am in Boston, not the equator.

This US summer is 'what global warming looks like'

By SETH BORENSTEIN
AP Science Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) -- If you want a glimpse of some of the worst of global warming, scientists suggest taking a look at U.S. weather in recent weeks.

Horrendous wildfires. Oppressive heat waves. Devastating droughts. Flooding from giant deluges. And a powerful freak wind storm called a derecho.

These are the kinds of extremes climate scientists have predicted will come with climate change, although it's far too early to say that is the cause. Nor will they say global warming is the reason 3,215 daily high temperature records were set in the month of June.

Scientifically linking individual weather events to climate change takes intensive study, complicated mathematics, computer models and lots of time. Sometimes it isn't caused by global warming. Weather is always variable; freak things happen.

Meanwhile, compare the usually RW Ap's headline above with that of cbs news, below.

Summer 2012: Glimpse of climate change effects?
Yet, CBS's source was AP.

Shame on CBS.
