The freaks have no shame. The latest burst of glabal warming idiocy comes from the ironically named The Center for American Progress:

The evidence for the consequences of global warming is appearing with alarming frequency. This morning's headlines are filled with tales of deadly weather: "At least four people were killed and about 40 injured when a tornado tore through a Boy Scout camp in western Iowa on Wednesday night"; "two people are dead in northern Kansas after tornadoes cut a diagonal path across the state"; "[t]wo Maryland men with heart conditions died this week" from the East Coast heat wave. These eight deaths come on top of reports earlier this week that the heat wave "claimed the lives of 17 people" and the wave of deadly storms killed 11 more: "six in Michigan, two in Indiana and one each in Iowa and Connecticut," as well as one man in New York. Tornadoes this year are being reported at record levels. States of emergency have been declared in Minnesota, California, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Michigan because of floods and wildfires. Counties in Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, South Dakota, and Wisconsin have been declared disaster areas due to the historic flooding that has breached dams, inundated towns, and caused major crop damage, sending commodity futures to new records. The flood waters are continuing down the Mississippi River, with "crests of 10 feet or more above flood level" for "at least the next two weeks."
Anybody who took high school general science and looks at a weather map would know the outburst of violent and wet weather in the middle of the country is caused by cold air which has taken up residence over the northwestern US (the ski resorts in The Cascades are still open in mid-June) which causes warm wet weather to be drawn up into the middle of the country from The Gulf. That cold air is the result of falling temperatures in the Pacific, the same phenomena causing the drought here in California.
So these global warming moonbats have it exactly backwards.
Idiots. This is not only stupid, it is pernicious. Un-informed folks buy this bilge, folks like the MSM.
