Signs of the Times

According to the New York Times, this summer goes down in the record books as New York's hottest with the temperature hitting or exceeding 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32C) on 34 separate days.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's Indus River has reached its highest level in 110 years and caused devestating flooding, and the temperature in Moscow hit 104F (40C!) for the first time ever. Floods have also stricken Sudan, China, North Korea, Niger and other countries.

Hmm, increasing greenhouse gas concentrations, unprecedented extreme weather across the globe as predicted in the climate models.  I wonder if there's a link?
