Wow! What a scoop for the investigative power, Think Progress:
WOW. It’s so hot in Oklahoma that the streetlights are melting.
Today could be the hottest day in Oklahoma City history, 114 degrees.
Meanwhile, a senator from Oklahoma, James Inhofe (R), is a major climate denier.
Gotcha! And in “climate denier” Inhofe’s backyard, no less! What could go wrong for Think Progress?
Correction: The lamp was standing pretty close to a recent fire, so it’s likely they didn’t melt from the heat. Here’s what the photographer said:
“Being the person that actually took this photo, I’d say that this was due to a fire semi-close by coupled with the unbelievable heat we are experiencing. Still an amazing photo and not fake as many are saying on here. Enjoy!”
Verdict: Think Progress is moronic.
