"Roger Federer, one of the world's greatest tennis players, may have become an
unwitting spokesman for the effects of climate change on Monday at the U.S.
Open.

Federer, who is ranked No. 2, seemed to struggle all night in the heat and
humidity at Arthur Ashe Stadium, losing in a fourth-round upset to John
Millman, an Australian ranked 55th.

'It was hot,' Federer said. It 'was just one of those nights where I guess I
felt I couldn't get air; there was no circulation at all.'"

The global warming crowd is mocking itself
at this point.

The snow flake couldn't take the heat.

If you can't take the heat, stay off center court.

Someone needs to tow a nice iceblock down the East Coast.

[Ze not-a-coincidence:]

So funny.... "1850" approx the time of the end of the Little Ice Age.....
-- Robert Williamson aka Cartoony, 15 Nov 2013

The NASA Earth Observatory notes three particularly cold intervals:
one beginning about 1650, another about 1770, and the last in 1850,
all separated by intervals of slight warming. The Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change Third Assessment Report considered the timing
and areas affected by the Little Ice Age suggested largely-independent
regional climate changes rather than a globally-synchronous increased
glaciation. At most, there was modest cooling of the Northern
Hemisphere during the period.
