I'm trying to imagine the stupidity of a person who would honestly ask this question. It's difficult.

Guys hear me out, but it seems as if weather does different things on each side of the continent. Crazy right?

I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered
But you can't stay here with every single temperature record shattered

How are floods and droughts happening at the same time?  That's nothing - I called my friend in Hawaii first thing this morning, he yelled at me for waking him up in the middle of the night. How can it be both morning and night at the same time? How?

Because the Earth is tilted on its axis, so all the water runs to one side.

In just the past month or so we've had 1 in 1000 year floods in Illinois, Kentucky, Las Vegas, Death Valley... any others?  I think Disney World was underwater too.

/It's almost as if the climate is changing.  Some places are getting a ton more rain.  Some places are getting a lot less.

i was trying to follow all the extreme weather events in the US, and then I found out about the insane flooding in iran, pakistan and india and china, then the UK's having 40+ degree days on top of all that, and we're barely into hurricane season yet. Australia's probably going to have some gigantic wildfires starting in around december/january no doubt with some heat records broken.
