If you read any story about yesterday’s march for climate change, which is really global warming, but they rebranded it, you’ll notice it was sweltering heat in Washington.
91°F is “sweltering,” though please note it was not record breaking heat, but rather tied a record set in 1974. Yes, the hottest recorded temperature on this day in Washington, D.C., was a record set 43 years ago when scientists were worried about global cooling.
By the way, the “sweltering” high heat came after 2p.m. in the afternoon, when many of the marchers had wrapped up. The heat stayed in the low to mid-eighties through much of the morning when the major march was going on. It was not sweltering or anywhere close when the people were out marching that morning.
