how lame can this be ?

While possible rain in the next few days may bring some cheer to Singaporeans suffering in a sweltering June, the weatherman is also projecting hotter days ahead.

The Meteorological Service Singapore on Monday noted that while the highest temperature in this month's first 24 days was 32.7 deg C, daily maximum temperatures in the coming weeks may hit 34 deg C.

June temperatures so far have been milder compared with those in the past five years, with the highest in 2007 at 34 deg C. The highest temperature ever recorded in June is 35 deg C in 1985.



HOTTEST DAYS
A spokesman for the meteorological service blames the sweaty conditions on strong solar heating, low rainfall and light winds.

blaming the heat on the solar heating is like blaming the flood being caused by water, unless the met expects some heating from polar heating ?

Why use the word "blames"?

This is force of nature, why the need to blame? Can't the spokeperson "explain" that the hot weather is due to all those factors?

Everyone will just have to accept it and move on. What's there to complain?

Would be better if it is phased instead as "the meteorological service attribute the sweaty conditions to strong solar heating"

But then, perhaps that is not the point..

the point is.. if hot weather is not due to the sun..

maybe it is due to the moon.....?

in response to the first post:

It is equally as lame, if not more lame than

"floods are caused by intense storms" - I think Mr Yaacob Ibrahim said that

Are you people serious? I thought it was the reporter's choice of word, 'blame' but not 'blame' in its literal sense. Seriously, you think our bureaucrats must responsible for Singapore's weather? Is this the type of 'standard' we demand from our civil servants? Like that who want to join civil service?
