The data show that June 2019 was the hottest month ever, for the entire globe. That's climate; not weather.

According to the doomsday global warming cult.
What are you talking about? NOBODY says the sun and clouds don't affect the climate. The MAIN driver of climate change is human activity; mainly our burning of fossil fuels.

That's the FACTS. And things are very dire - if only we can break through the willful ignorance about what is happening.

The climate has been hotter for most of Earth history, but I get what you're saying; that rapid climate change is no bueno.

The sun drives the climate. Human activity drives the change.

...at the moment. That could change as well.

PhD guy on the weather channel says climate isn't a month or a year, it's changes over hundreds and thousands of years.
I would be more worried if it was the coolest June on record, so at least it's going the right direction.

We've been burning coal and oil for centuries, and sure enough the current century is much hotter than the previous ones.
Just like the current decade is hotter than the previous ones.
Just like every year over the last 20 years has been hotter than any year between 1800 and 1950.

That's a climate change, and it is progressing at ever increasing speed.
How deep needs one put ones head in the sand to ignore that?

And the 1800s were warmer than the little ice age.

It does not need to be sand. Ice is fine too.
