Street Light Melts In Kuwait, Warmists Blame “Climate Change”

There couldn’t possibly be another explanation than people living high carbon lifestyles, right? Here’s Excitable Shea Gunther at Mother Nature Network

You know it’s hot outside when the traffic lights are melting

WIth temperatures hovering around 110 degrees in Kuwait right now, it shouldn’t be too surprising to see something like a melted traffic light. What’s even crazier? It’s hotter than that in Phoenix right now.

Redditor Mohayat lives in Kuwait and snapped this amazing photograph of a traffic light literally melting under the hot summer sun.

Dooooooom…….wait, what? The average temperature for Kuwait City is in the 110-113 range for this time of year? Well, spank my bottom and call me Sally. Who could have easily found information like that? Oh, but it gets better, much, much better

See, after doing a little search, something Shea and Peter Gleick forgot to do. At Bananaq8 one of the folks in the comments found this picture

See the stop light right in front of the car? Oh, and video. And here’s Shea in a response to me yesterday when I noted that the temperature was within the norm, and my response to Shea

And, yes, I have a screenshot of the MNN post in case Shea wants to play games and remove the tags.

    110 in Kuwait? gee Teach it hit 118 in Vegas and Phoenix. It was soooooo hot that planes were not allowed to fly. I have NEVER heard that before, have you? And that was 118 in the SHADE

    • jd says:

      I’ve heard of planes not taking off because of extreme heat (there’s a number called the Temperature-altitude that dictates whether they can take off on a particular runway). They didn’t stop the planes from taking off in Phoenix, though. I spoke with an ATC this weekend and he said they needed a little more runway than average but didn’t really affect them much at all.

      It was over 118 under my car, which is where I was this weekend. That’s not all that spectacular for Phoenix. I don’t know what you’re getting all excited about there, john.

    john’s post is a two-fer.

    First, he tries to deflect off the central issue of the post that another warmist has been caught in a lie.

    Secondly, when snow storms ravaged the US over the past few years, john tried to say they were “local events” and not indicative of climate change.

    Now an temperature spike that signifies proof of man made global warming to john.

    There are two things that one can count on from people like john: double standards and the acceptance of lies that “help” their cause.

    Wait… why was it hot in the western states? that makes no sense? Why would it be hot in summer in western states, esp areas like Death Valley?

    gobul varmink !!!

    Yeah, last week the idiots tried to trot out the melting street light globes from Stillwater OKlahoma as if it just happened. Further proof that we have a world full of idiots that can’t remember past their eyeballs.

    John seems to think that 118F in the deserts of the Mid-East is unusual.

  4. Bill Chunko says:

    For what it’s worth, I saw temperatures of 127 F when I was deployed to Kuwait in 2010.

  5. jd says:

    and seriously, they’re probably making that stuff out of thermoplastics with a melting temp around 250 degrees F. Good grief, give the engineers a little credit.

    Boss: Well, Engineer, I want you to design a traffic light.
    Engineer: How hot does it get?
    B: 117 degrees.
    E: Great, I’ll design it for 118 degrees.

    16.67 years later (at 6 degrees per century),
    E: D’oh!

  6. Wasted_Gumballs says:

    Geez Bill, how did you keep from dying in a nuclear implosion from the build up of your internal and external heat due to the fires of man-made hell?

    You know, with temps like that, I am really surprised to learn that people actually live in those deserts. They even have animals, I think they call them kammels. I don’t believe it, but they say they are adapted to the heat and dryness of the deserts. Like I said, I don’t believe it. It just can’t possibly be true. Like the idea that the moon is NOT made out of cheese. Puhleeze.

    Take my word for it, catastrophist will find a way to blame anything on Glowbull warming.

  8. Bill Chunko says:


    Don’t tell anyone, but I rode a bicycle to work while I was over there.

  9. Wasted_Gumballs says:

    Obviously you did not ride it enough then. Because it is still global-meltingly hot over there. You should be full of shame for having failed. tsk tsk tsk.

  10. Bill Chunko says:

    I guess I’ll just have to sacrifice myself on the altar of Global Warming/Political Correctness to atone for my sins!
