I was out of the office last week and missed this, but it’s still worth posting. Peter Sinclair over at Climate Denial Crock of the Week has an excellent video putting this summer’s record heat and catastrophic weather events into context, while calling out the skeptics:

I happened to be home in New Jersey over the weekend for the crazy storms and flooding there. Parts of South Jersey got more than 10 inches of rain on Sunday; I thought I was going to need a pontoon to get home. The damage from the storm is expected to cost the county $20 million. It doesn’t take a weatherman to know that things are wacky out there.

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
