"Heat Bursts?"?

OK, I'm not a baptized Global Warmer.

The Earth is 4 Billion years old. We've only been studying the weather scientifically (without invoking Gods) for a couple of hundred years.

The Antarctic used to be tropical. The Gobi desert used to be lush. North America was a frozen tundra buried under glaciers. Shit happens.

Even if the Earth IS warming, I'm not convinced that we are to blame. It could be cyclical. It could be the Sun's fault. We don't know.

But "heat bursts"? That's some freaky shit.

I'm 50 years old. Never heard of heat bursts.
