BEST Explanation Ever on Why 1 Degree of Change Feels So Freaking Hot

I know some people don't believe the New York Times - so I live with that. But for those that believe science this is BEST Explanation Ever on Why 1 Degree of Change Feels So Freaking Hot.

You should read the entire article, but the key info-graphic is below. New York Times is displaying the data from James Hansen a retired NASA Climate scientist and professor at Colombia University. It shows why some days are so damn hot, even though overall climate hasn't moved much.

The bell has flattened out AND moved so there are a LOT more "Extremely Hot" days.
This is a fascinating set of data I hadn't quite thought of. It also fits in with today's breaking news (link) that the Trump Administration won't sign off on a federal report from 13 agencies that climate change is worse and more rapid than feared. (CBS News Link)
