According to Newsweek’s attribution, that photo is from 2006, apparently so the point could be made that the “new normal” has been going on for quite a while. Newsweek also confessed that many of the fires are suspected to have been started by arsonists, but climate change exacerbated them so just shut up and blame global warming, deniers!
Meanwhile, there are alternate theories for why it’s so hot:
It July, say climate experts.

so when #climatechange skeptics point out when it's especially cold in the winter, that's not proof that climate change isn't real. but when it's especially hot in the summer, it IS proof that #ClimateChangeIsReal ? https://t.co/skopjM9Yhp

I think you’re on to something because the weather has been REALLY hot for the last forever summers.
