It was all predicted days ahead of the heatwave based on weather information.

Here is that presentation about it.

Global warming claims for the heatwave is media based nonsense.

Yes it has been predicted and tracked.

Quote:
A heat wave of this magnitude required weather systems and winds to align, but it could not have been this extreme without human-caused climate change.

The role of climate change has been to substantially increase the likelihood of record-breaking temperatures.

Simple logic dictates a climate experiencing a background warming of several degrees will be more prone to hotter heat events. It’s like a slam dunk in basketball — if the floor rises, it becomes easier to score.
Quote:
“Summers in the Pacific Northwest are about three degrees warmer today than 50 or 100 years ago,” said Zeke Hausfather, a climate scientist at the Breakthrough Institute. “All things equal, we would think a heat wave today would be about three degrees warmer.”

Such warming..., means exceptionally strong heat waves, such as this, become more frequent.

“Heat waves that used to occur as 1-in-1,000-year events are becoming 1-in-100-year events and 1-in-100-year events are becoming 1-in-20...
We've experienced the hottest days on record all in the last 6 years (during a cooling period no less).

This is typical babble, not a shred of evidence behind it. It is stupid too since it WEATHER events for the region that caused it.

You didn't read my link at all.

Here is the aftermath of the heat wave by the same author showing that Global Warming has nothing to do with it:

Was Global Warming The Cause of the Great Northwest Heatwave? Science Says No.

I did.
I used to not believe in global warming due to human activity but the facts seem to point otherwise.
