Global Warming and the Boston Marathon

Looks like runners in the Boston Marathon had to deal with some brutally hot weather today. They had better get used to it; thanks to global warming caused by economic freedom, it will be too hot to make good time from now on:

When the gun went off for the elite women’s race at 9:30 a.m. ET, it was 70 degrees Fahrenheit, and by the time the winner crossed the finish line on Boylston Street 2 hours 21 minutes and 52 seconds later, the mercury had creeped into the low 70’s. The average high for Boston in April is 56 degrees F. …

But this year was not an aberration. Last year’s starting temperature was also high, hitting 71 degrees F. The 2012 race began at 65 degrees and 2015 at 61. And as scientists have pointed out, high temperatures could be the new normal for this famous race, meaning its days of breaking running records could become much rarer.

According to a Boston University professor, running when it is too hot out “leads to cramps, dehydration and heat exhaustion, and can sometimes even result in a runner’s death.” David Buckel may have been the first, but he won’t be the last casualty of global warming.

Wait a minute. Sorry. That article about the Boston Marathon was from last year. As for 2018:

Desiree Linden splashed her way through icy rain and a near-gale headwind to win the Boston Marathon on Monday, the first victory for an American woman since 1985. …

Linden and [men’s winner Yuki] Kawauchi led a field of 30,000 runners through a drenching rain, temperatures in the mid-30s and gusts of up to 32 mph on the 26.2-mile trek…

Sounds unpleasant. I’ll wait here in Phoenix until global warming shows up for real.

How many wrong predictions can warmists make before people stop taking their hysterical doomsaying seriously?
