    Who's denying that earth is going through climatic changes? The problem is no one is willing to cut back on waste of resources, especially water.

    I'm sure the problem is no one thinks that loss of aquifers have anything to do with climatic change and rain fall. The mid west once relied on aquifers and underground water tables for crops and food are being dried up by over use of aquifer rivers and dams blocking natural flows to replenish aquifers.

    Evaporation of ground waters are a big influence of rain and natural water distribution. Since all natural distribution has been altered then it can be expected to affect all aspects of weather, including temperatures. Farmers and using water was a major influence of resource recycling buy farmers are now accused of taking water form industry and population growth so we wisely stopped recycling water in the farming regions and their aquifers by redirecting farmer water to water treatment plants and river confluences.

    I don't think the heat wave is politically motivated other than over developing and shutting down natural event water recycling by putting it all in pipes directing it away from natural flows.

    I can only guarantee that if republicans ever admit to global warming being impacted by man, they will blame it on Obama for not stopping it.
