In what we interpret as a consequence of normal global weather fluctuations rather than evidence of the veracity of any pseudo-scientific liberal "global warming" agenda, New York City just had its hottest summer ever. How hot was it?

Hotter than the previous high of 77.3 degrees set in 1966, when more than 1,100 deaths were attributed to heat that repeatedly exceeded 100 degrees.

A sizzlin' 77.8 degrees on average! So, hot, but not that hot.
