"Hottest July Ever In Oklahoma, Center Of Climate Change Denial"
With fossil pollution superheating the world’s atmosphere, it was the hottest July in recorded history in the state of Oklahoma, represented by the nation’s top climate-change deniers like Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) and Gov. Mary Fallin (R-OK). The deadly heat was apolitical, however, scorching Detroit with its hottest July. Records throughout the nation were shattered: “Temperatures in Newark, NJ, set an all-time record of 108. Highs in Atlantic City, N.J., topped 105 for two straight days. In Oklahoma City, temps topped 100 for 27 of the past 30 days of July. Dallas/Fort Worth is enduring its second longest stretch of consecutive 100-plus days at 30, closing in on the record of 42 in 1980, said Chris Vaccaro of the National Weather Service.”
