It's nearly 100 degrees F outside in Mountain View. Ugh! This would be awful even for September, let alone April. Although no particular weather event can be attributed with certainty to anthropogenic climate change, I was intrigued by a recent study that estimated about 75% of current heat waves worldwide would not have happened without human influence. In other words, yes, this is probably our fault. :-( http://www.sciencetimes.com/articles/5930/20150428/extremely-hot-days-why-one-study-saying-global-warming-blame.htm
Climate change is already causing heat waves and other extreme weather events around the world. Now, a new study has confirmed that these types of extreme events will only get worse and as much as 75 percent of the planet's "moderate daily hot extremes" can be tied to climate change.
