GISS: +0.61C, 4th warmest August on record

From the third warmest July (+0.59C) to the fourth warmest August, the persistence of Nina-ish conditions does not seem to be helping cool this torrid summer. (H/t to the sharp eyes of Quark Soup.)

Have a kind thought for fire fighters in Texas, coping with the worst of all possible worlds: record heat (thanks to global warming), record drought (thanks to La Nina and, again, global warming), and vicious cuts to fire services that have left firefighters ponying up for their own gear (thanks to a jackass climate denier governor whose prayers for rain have gone unanswered -- apparently Perry is not familiar with the old saw that God helps those that help themselves.)
