One heat wave does not equal evidence of global warming.

Because of the heat wave in Europe, the Loon Faction of environmentalist have emerged with their latest dire predictions of mass catastrophe on Earth and, of course, attributed it all to global warming. Mind you, they lack any sort of real evidence, but still warn:

“WE CANNOT say for sure that this is global warming, but the growing frequency of extreme weather events ties in with predictions of global warming,” said Asher Minns, a scientist at Britain’s Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research.

Ok, predictions of global warming may include predictions of extreme weather events, but it does not follow that extreme weather events are caused by global warming. That's like saying all people need oxygen, so if no people are around there must be no oxygen.

While the loons like to point at the recent weather in Europe as "evidence," perhaps they would like to also address the cooler than normal temperatures that have graced the midwest and eastern parts of the US this summer. That may not fit into the alarmist agenda, but it may temper their efforts to scare the rest of us.
