[Now-deleted Climate Progress post] In Oklahoma, It’s So Hot The Street Lights Are Melting

Here’s a picture from Stillwater, Oklahoma, where temperatures will reach has high as 115 degrees today. The photo comes from Patrick Hunter, who sent the picture to KFOR-TV.

Oklahoma continues to get scorched by extreme heat...

Even as residents swelter in the relentless heat, Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe continued his tirade about man-made global warming during a Senate hearing yesterday, saying the science had “collapsed.”

It appears the only thing collapsing are the street lights.

Taylor-Brandy Thompson Whoever sent the pic didn't have all the details. Plastic bulbs melted from a dumpster fire; dumpster was used for construction, although fire did start because of the heat. I saw it with my own eyes across the street from my office.
