How Hot Will Summer Be on Long Island in 2100?

In 86 years, climate change could make New York summers feel more like Florida, reports say.

Thinking of moving to Florida when you retire? Save your money.

Long Island summers may resemble a summer in Florida within the next century, according to Climate Central.

With climate change slowly increasing temperatures around the globe, the average temperature could climb 10 degrees by the year 2100, according to the report.

A summer in Levittown, which currently averages 80.92 degrees, will likely resemble that of Kendale Lakes, Florida where temperatures are 89.89 degrees. 

Brentwood will feel like North Miami Beach in 86 years, said the report. Brentwood currently averages 80.28 degrees in the summer but could reach 89.11 degrees in 2100.

Climate Central said summer temperatures would increase but did not account for humidity levels.

On average, temperatures were projected to increase about 7-10 degrees nationwide. 

While the Northeast may resemble Florida, the southwest could feel like the Middle East. Phoenix, Arizona is projected to resemble today's temperatures in Kuwait and could jump from its current 103.96 degrees to 114.08 degrees.

The analysis bases its findings on daytime temperatures from June to August.

What do you think of the temperature jump? Does it make you worry about climate change or are you indifferent? Tell us in the comments.

The extremist progressive liberal scumbags are great at messaging. They are masters of using the right terms that will influence the greatest number of idiots and morons, in order to enact punishing legislation for one goal: to have power. First, there was "global warming." Next, when the earth was not actually getting hotter, the term morphed into "climate change." Great use of spin, right? After all, the climate is always changing. But if no one notices the change, why not just use the current term du jour of the extremist progressive liberal eco scum, "climate disruption."

For all those morons and progressive liberal Kool-Aid drinking zombies, here is a great and inexpensive technique to reduce carbon dioxide, reduce the effects of the sun's warming, all while producing life giving oxygen for all living creatures. Plant trees. Lots of trees.

Patch is a little desperate for content, and Heather knows a story that will get comments. I doubt anyone out of Fifth Grade really gives any credibility to this stuff.

It was cold winter. Therefore, global warming does not exist.
